Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
This Week’s Theme: Ten Books That Are On my Autumn TBR
Well, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve participated in a TTT. I wasn’t even going to post this, but I was inspired by everyone else’s post so here we are! My TBR is insane so there’s a ton of books I haven’t mentioned here. These are just a handful of upcoming releases or backlist books that I’d like to get to! Obviously, I changed Spring to Autumn because #SouthernHemisphereLife 🇦🇺.
Fun Fact: The first TTT I ever participated in was for your Spring/Autumn TBR! I’m not even going to look at that post though because I guarantee I read none of the books on it 😂.
The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli – I finally read Simon Vs this year and I adored it to pieces. I can’t wait to experience more of Becky Albertalli’s amazing writing. This also comes out the day before my birthday!! So Happy Birthday to me!!!!
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo – After falling in love with Six of Crows last year I’ve been hesitant to pick up Crooked Kingdom because I’m TERRIFIED. I need to just bite the bullet and read it already.
The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich – If you’ve been following me for any amount of time you’ll know how much I NEED THIS BOOK. Cale Dietrich follows me on Twitter and he’s super rad (we had a discussion about MySpace once!!!) and I just need this book in my life???
The Wanderers by Meg Howrey – This is apparently similar to The Martian but with more a sci-fi twist? A group of astronauts are getting ready to leave for Mars and all this weird shit starts happening during one of their training simulations. Can we also talk about how stunning the cover is?
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus – I have an ARC of this! I LOVE YA thrillers SO MUCH. I really want to read more thrillers/horrors this year. This is supposed to be reminiscent of The Breakfast Club (which confession time: I’ve never seen) where a group of teenagers are in detention and one of them ends up murdered?
The Inexplicable Logic of My Life by Benjamin Alire Saenz – Another book that I have an ARC of. I’ve heard that this book has some problematic elements which breaks my heart a little, but I’m interested in reading it for myself and seeing what else it has to offer.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab – I actually had a dream the other night that I was reading this book so if that’s not a sign I don’t know what it is. Now that I’ve finished the Shades of Magic series I need more of Victoria’s writing in my life and plus this is about superheroes, kinda, which YES.
History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera – I read More Than Happy Not this year and I’m still not over it. I’m ready for Adam Silvera to break my heart all over again. SIGN ME UP.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas – This is gonna be one of the most important books I’ve ever read and I can’t wait. It’s inspired by #BlackLivesMatter and I know that it’s going to teach me so much. The reason why I haven’t already read it yet it is because I’m waiting to have enough money to buy a physical copy.
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde – Again, like with The Love Interest, you’ll know how excited I am about this book. I am so so so so excited. I’ve heard so many positive reviews that have got me all 😍😍😍!!!!
