(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
I’ve already told you which books I’m taking to university, and the books I’m going to be studying there. Here are ten more books that are going on my fall TBR (even though I’m still in the middle of a huge reading slump and probably won’t be able to get to any of them!). Wish me luck…

10) ‘The Girls‘ by Emma Cline
‘The Girls’ was THE most talked about debut novel last year. Why I’ve put off reading it, I have no idea, but I’m planning on getting to it within the next couple of months. That being said, I was planning to read it the month it published… Hmm.
9) ‘Throne of Glass‘ by Sarah J. Maas
I should probably start this series soon, right? Today I found a cheap copy of ‘Tower of Dawn’, and considering I own all of Sarah’s books but I’ve only read one of them – not a single installment of the Throne of Glass series – I feel as though I’m the outcast of the YA blogosphere.
8) ‘All the Bright Places‘ by Jennifer Niven
I’m procrastinating ‘All the Bright Places’ because I’ve heard that it causes complete and utter heartbreak. While I’m feeling sorry for myself away from home in a new city, I’ll be able to wallow in the emotions for days.
7) ‘The Sun is Also a Star‘ by Nicola Yoon
When I was accepted for ‘The Sun is Also a Star’ on NetGalley, I almost cried. Because I loved ‘Everything Everything’, I was excited to read Nicola’s second novel… But for some reason I never got around to it. Whoops. I’m sure I’m going to enjoy this book just as much, but I’ll only know when I read it!
6) ‘Season of Wind’ by Aimee Hyndman
It took me a while to get in to ‘Hour of Mischief’, but once I did I really enjoyed it. Honestly, I’d almost forgotten about it, but when the sequel came up on a Curiosity Quills email, I couldn’t resist requesting a copy. Partially because I have to read it for CQ, and partly because I’m looking forward to carrying on with the story, I’m going to try to get this done by the end of October.
5) ‘Romantic Outlaws: The Extraordinary Lives of Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley‘ by Charlotte Gordon
As I’m studying ‘Frankenstein’, I thought a good place to start would be learning about the relationship between Mary Shelley and her mother, Mary Wollstonecraft. Both women are hugely influential, and knowing that they never knew each other – Wollstonecraft dying shortly after childbirth – means it’s bound to be heart-wrenching.
4) ‘Her Every Fear‘ by Peter Swanson
‘The Kind Worth Killing’ was a great book, and though I haven’t had time to read Peter’s first novel yet, I’m excited to move on to his third title. I actually managed to pick it up fairly cheap today, so I’m going to squeeze this in as soon as I can.
3) ‘Ice Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes)‘ by Sara Raasch
When I reviewed ‘Snow Like Ashes’, I said I wanted to read the sequel as soon as I could. I still haven’t gotten around to it. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?! I’m definitely going to read this book in either autumn or winter, though, so I might as well pop it on my fall TBR and move it to my winter one if I still haven’t gotten around to it.
2) ‘Straight Outta Crongton‘ by Alex Wheatle
I loved the first two books in Alex’s Crongton series, but for some reason I haven’t started ‘Straight Outta Crongton’ yet. Sadly, I have the library’s only copy, and it’s been reserved. WHAT DO?! Well, I guess read it quickly – if I can.
1) ‘They Both Die at the End‘ by Adam Silvera
My boyfriend lent me his copy of ‘They Both Die at the End’, expecting me to be able to read it before I went to university. I used to be a fast reader, so his hope wasn’t that misguided… But I haven’t even been able to bring myself to pick the book up, let alone open it! I’m going to try to sneak it off to university with me, read it and then sneak it back into his flat without him noticing. It probably won’t work, though.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! Which book are you definitely going to read this season?
