Top Ten Tuesdays (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish where a new top ten list is posted each week. This week is: Top Ten Books That Are On The Top Of My TBR List For Fall. Well mine are all books that have been out for a while, but have moved up my list due to recommendations, time limits or just plain guilt out of how long they've been sitting there.

1. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
This has been sitting on my TBR for ages. It's got great reviews and the only reason I have yet to read it is that I love the cover so much I don't want the book to let my expectations down. I'm hoping to go to a signing in October though, so I'll definitely be reading the book before then.

2. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Exactly the same reasons as above, it's just been waiting to be read for slightly less time.

3. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
This was an impulse pick for me when my sister offered to buy me some new books, but I got sooooo many positive comments when I mentioned it in my IMM post I had to bump this to my read-it-soon list.

4. Glass Houses by Rachel Caine
I have the first ten books in this series waiting to be read, purchased purely from how much I love the Weather Warden books. I'll definitely be reading the first one, but will most likely end up reading all of the rest too.

5. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I've had this out from my library for literally months and I keep putting it off because of the size. My Mum has read it during that time and loved it, so I really need to read it. Also at some point the library will probably want their book back.

6. Hook, Line and Sink Him by Jackie Pilossoph
This is my guilt pick. I won this last year from a Goodreads giveaway and haven't managed to read it yet. It isn't that there's anything wrong with the book, it sounds really good but other books just seem to be catching my interest more when picking what to read.

7. Les Liasons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos
I love the movie Cruel Intentions and actually started reading this before only to lose the book! Now I have a new copy and a road trip coming up that makes the letter format of this book ideal. Plus I loved what I managed to read before and still can't believe some of the humour in a book that is that old!

8. Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward
I read Dark Lover a few years back and loved it so much I brought the rest of the series, and then forgot about them. I've just had them recommended to me (again) as part of a pick-it-for-me challenge so they're moving back up my list.

9. The Hidden by Jessica Verday
Not a book that I own and, given my resolution not to buy any books this year, not one I can buy myself but one I desperately want. I'm hoping my continual whining, begging and offers to trade babysitting, chores, body parts...whatever will get one of my family to get it for me. Hopefully. Or I may cry :(

10. Something by Jane Austen
My Mum and I have been saying for ages we'll do the whole Jane Austen book club one per month thing but never get round to it. I've only ever read Pride & Prejudice and Emma so I'm hoping to finally get them read.


  1. I need to read the first three on your list too ... and a lot of the others. I doubt I'll get to them this year, though. So many books, so little time!

  2. I'm not familiar with some of the books on your list but The Hidden looks interesting. Also, I think i might want to try Paranormalcy too for the same reason as you.

    Happy reading!

    Thanks for stopping by. It was my first Top Ten too, so hooray for us!!! Woooh! ^_^

  3. Yes, yes, almost ALL of them are on my TBR list as well! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who hasn't read Paranormalcy yet ;)
    Thanks for stopping by @ the Broke and the Bookish!

  4. Ive read Hush Hush, haven't been upto reading the triology, somehow I am worried it will get ruined. But I would love to see some more Patch and Nora romance..hehe! Ooo I want to watch Cruel Intentions! You read French? That is cool! :)
    Great list!

  5. Aren't you good? Not buying any books this year? Wow!

    It was easy to put together my Top Ten list this week,Top Ten Books That Are at the Top of My TBR for Fall! And tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway!

  6. Thanks for all the comments guys :)

    @ Kiwi - I wish I read French, but I never bothered learning much past what I needed to order food and buy pretty jewellery. I'm reading a translation.


Thank you so much for commenting on my blog! I read and cherish every comment, and always try to comment back :)
