[TOP TEN TUESDAY] TBR List (Autumn 2013)

BlogAfter last week my TBR list has definitely at least doubled! Everyone had such great picks that I couldn’t help but add a few to my list. I’ve managed to pull out a mix of the Top Ten I can’t wait for this Autumn and the ones I’m really excited to pick up next!

In no particular order:

Allegiant – Veronica Roth (22nd October 2013)
The final installment in theΒ  Divergent Trilogy, I can’t wait to see how Roth wraps everything up and I’m especially excited to see how the double narration works. This book can’t come soon enough!

World After – Susan Ee (19th November 2013)
Does November count as Autumn? I’m not sure I care. I loved Angelfall and I’m so excited for the sequel, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Ee can keep up the pace in World After.

Not a Drop to Drink – Mindy McGinnis (24th September 2013)
I already love the plot outline and I’ve heard so many great things that I couldn’t not add it to my list. Survival in a barren world with limited water supplies is a completely different game to the other apocolypse books I’ve read so far and I’m interested to see how this pans out.

Speak – Laurie Halse Anderson
First published in 1999, Speak sounds heartbreaking and dark with a strong message. I’d like to read this for something more serious than the usual.

Wool/Shift – Hugh Howey
I picked up Shift a few weeks ago thinking it was the first book (somehow missing the giant II on the spine, duh), but then I found out it’s actually a prequel. Which do I read first? Help!

Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
A classic I should definitely have read by now, I’ve been meaning to pick this up for a long time but it keeps getting pushed further down the list the more new books I find. I’m going to find time to finally read this soon!

All Our Yesterdays – Cristin Terrill
Another book that is blowing up right now, the concept is different and interesting so I’m excited to get my hands on a copy! I’m pretty sure this will feature as a review soon enough.

Feed – Mira Grant
I’ve never read a zombie book and Feed seems like a good place to start. The reviews are great and I like that we enter the world 20 years after infection, offering a different take on the classic zombie thriller.

Neverfall – Brodi Ashton
Another book I keep putting off, I finished Everneath and Everbound within a matter of days and I need to find out what happens to Nikki! I did love the first two books and I will get round to Neverfall at some point!

The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus was all over Top Ten Tuesday last week and I want to find out what all the fuss is about for myself. It’s supposed to be really visual and magical so I’m looking forward to trying it out.

Have you read any of my choices? Or are you adding some to your TBR list too? Leave your comments below!

    • Thank you! I really like the sound of the concept and I enjoy apocalypse books in general so I thought Feed would be interesting πŸ™‚

    • I’m glad you liked Speak, I’m looking forward to reading something a bit more serious. I’m a bit tentative with The Night Circus (probably because I’m scared of clowns!) but I am hoping it lives up to the all the hype!

    • Thank you, you too! Fahrenheit 451 is quite short so once I finally buy it I should get through it quickly enough (hopefully anyway)!

  1. I want to read the first three, too! I almost put All Our Yesterdays on my list, it looks great! I’ve been meaning to read Feed for a while. I hope you like Fahrenheit 451 and Night Circus! I need to reread 451 soon!

  2. I need to read Speak as well! I’m kind of scared to read it because it sounds like it’ll be a pretty emotional read and so many people admire and love it, but I really want to see why it’s such a respected YA book for myself!

    I had to read Fahrenheit 451 for school and didn’t really enjoy it, but I think it was mainly because I HAD to read it, and if I read it for the first time now, I would probably like it at least a little more. Hopefully the fact that you’re choosing to read it will make it even better for you!

    • Same! Just from the blurb it sounds so dark, I hope I don’t get too emotional!

      I felt the same way about Of Mice and Men in school, I hated it because it was forced on us and all that endless analysis! I think I’ll enjoy Fahrenheit 451, it’s only short so even if I don’t it won’t be a big deal I guess πŸ™‚
