Top Ten Tuesdays: Fall TBR List

Hey'a, everyone! Time for another Top Ten Tuesday! This time, the theme is the top ten books on my fall TBR list. I don't exactly have a reading list for fall, so I'll just list some books I want to read between now and Christmas.
  1. All the books I meant to read in the summer but didn't. That means Return of the King, Pride and Prejudice, Rise of the Wyrm Lord, The Final Storm, and The Cantral Chronicles.
  2. Forest Born by Shannon Hale. Because I read the rest of the series this summer and want to find out what happens to Isi, Enna, Razo, Finn, and the rest.
  3. The Dark Sea Annals book 3 by Wayne Thomas Batson. Its release has been pushed back a year already; I don't want to have to wait any longer.
  4. The Captive Maiden by Melanie Dickerson. It'll be released in October. Huzzah for Cinderella retellings! (Interesting fact: my spellchecker accepts "huzzah" but not "hurrah".)
  5. The Royal Ranger by John Flanagan. Apparently there's a twelfth book in the Ranger's Apprentice series, which also comes out in October. Also, apparently someone's died, and I have two very nasty suspicions about who it is. Here's hoping I'm wrong.
  6. Hamlet by William Shakespeare. I recently sat in on an Intro to Literature class, and the lesson was on part of this play. Now I want to find out the whole story.
  7. The Selection by Kiera Cass. A friend reviewed this book on her blog and it sounds interesting. If the library has it, I'll probably try it sometime.
  8. Ring of Secrets by Roseanne White. Because I got it out this summer and still have yet to read it.
I honestly don't know what else should be on there. I learned this summer that if you plan out reading lists that consist of much more than the new books coming out during that period of time, you can easily end up getting distracted. This is especially true since I'm constantly finding new books I want to read, and I can't really spend all day reading anymore. (Though that's probably a good thing, since it keeps me from running out of books.) I think what I have here will be manageable, though, and if anyone has suggestions of anything I've forgotten (or something I should read this fall- suggestions of new books are always welcome!), feel free to let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading!

  1. I should make a list for this fall too, although I don't really read a lot of books nowadays.

    Those look like good books!

    1. Thanks, WordWeaver! You don't read a lot? Aw. If you do make a list, let me know how it turns out.

    2. I find myself writing more than reading, anyways.

      Okay, will do! I think I'll be reading some Redwall novels.

    3. Ah. I suppose that makes sense; I've ended up doing the same quite a bit.


  2. Have you read A Cast of Stones yet?

    Looks like you have a good list, I still have yet to make it through my summer list and I have a massive selection on hold at the Library :)


    1. Ooh! No, I haven't, but I hope to sometime soon. Forgot to put that on there.

      Thanks! Good luck with your reading.

  3. I read The Door Within Trilogy recently. Still as good as ever. And I discovered who were my favourite characters and which scene was my favourite scene.

    1. Cool! Who are they, and which one is it?

    2. Mallik and Nock. Mallik's my favourite out of the two. And my favourite scene is where Mallik is trying to show Robby how he can smash the white rock.

    3. Mallik and Nock are awesome; I can't pick a favorite. And that is a great scene.

    4. Ah, I love Mallik and Nock, but especially Nock. I loved their short story at the end of the last book. :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts! But remember: it pays to be polite to dragons.
