Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

So “fall” (spring here in Australia) has already started but it lasts for most of the rest of the year. I haven’t read a lot this year so I still have a bunch of books on my yearly TBR that I need to read. They’re all kind of big books and I don’t know how many of them I’m actually going to get through because I’m really busy, but we can hope right?

  • The Sending & The Red Queen by Isobelle Carmody // These books are massive but I really want to finish this series by the end of the year and finally find out how it ends
  • Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J Maas // I can’t wait to finish this series so I can’t wait until this book comes out

36126988 30093234 29283884

  • Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead & The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan // I’m half way through both of these books and I have been for forever. They’re usually super quick reads for me so I think I need to just sit down and read them in one go
  • The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee // So many people I know have loved this book, and I even have it on my shelf but I just haven’t gotten to it yet

  • Nightfall & Flashback by Shannon Messenger // I love this series so much, but I haven’t read the book that came out last year and there’s another book coming out in the next few months ahhh I kind of want to do a reread of the whole series first
  • Whisper of the Tide by Sarah Tolcser // I loved the first book in this series (I think it’s a duology?) and the next book is on my shelf so I really need to get to it


  • All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater // I have loved all of Maggie Stiefvater’s other booked and loved them, and I also own this one but I haven’t read it yet

What books are on your fall TBR?

  1. I can’t wait for Kingdom of Ash, I feel like the wait has been forever (probably because I skipped Tower of Dawn, which I hope to rectify, at some point).


    1. I read an enjoyed Tower of Dawn so I’d definitely recommend checking it out. It captured the things I loved about the first book that got a bit lost as the plot got more large scale. But I’ve definitely forgotten most of Empire of Storms… woops


    1. I have to admit I feel like I’m outgrowing Rick Riordan’s books a bit so I’m glad I’m not the only one with them on my TBR. I’ve been part way through the second Trials of Apollo books for what seems like forever so I can definitely see why you didn’t enjoy it. I don’t know whether it’s the book itself of just that I’ve changed though.


      1. Oh me too, I’m probably going to give up on his Apollo series because I found the character quite childish in the second book. I’m hoping I’ll like Magnus Chase better since I liked his first one, but I found Meg and Leo quite childish (although I feel Leo was acting quite young for his age possibly?)


    1. Me too! I carry books around to read but my copy of Vice and Virtue is a hardcover and that’s so much more effort to take with me so I’ve been putting off reading it.


  2. Kingdom of Ash! :D That one’s going to be HUGE. Nearing 1000 pages, I think? It’ll take everyone a while to get through, I’m sure, haha.
    Hope you enjoy The Gentleman’s Guide! I did – even though a certain character got on my nerves a lot – but I’m more eager for the sequel, really. :)

    Happy reading!

    1. Wow I didn’t know Kingdom of Ash was going to be that big, but I can’t say I’m surprised. Everyone keeps saying they loved The Gentleman’s Guide and it does sound right up my alley so I’m excited to read it.

    1. I’m not surprised to see Kingdom of Ash is so popular. I can’t wait to finish the series because I feel like it’s starting to spiral out of control and maybe once it’s over a new fantasy series can rise up as the most popular.


    1. I’ve also heard great things about Gentleman’s Guide! And I found Tower of Dawn to be my favorite of the recent ToG books because it returns to the adventure / mystery style vibe of the first book.


  3. Kingdom of Ash has been on nearly every list I’ve visited today, including my own ;) I can’t wait for this book, but I’m a little sad to see the series end. Hope you enjoy all of these!

    Here’s my TTT.

    1. Kingdom of Ash is so popular, which I’m not really surprised by. It’s a monster of a book through so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get it done this season.


  4. i’m thinking about picking up All the Crooked Saints because i just finished the Raven Cycle and lovedlovedloved it. happy reading!


    1. Ahhh! Yes, the ending to The Raven Cycle left me on a book high for weeks. I’ve had All the Crooked Saints on my shelf since Christmas, but I haven’t had much time to read this year so maybe this will be season I’ll finally get to it. Happy reading!

    1. It is a really massive series! But I think you’ll get something more out of the series from reading them in quick sucession… I keep forgetting things


  5. I don’t think I’ll get to Kingdom of Ash this fall, because my library doesn’t have it available to put on hold yet and I still have to read Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn, but I hope to read those two this fall and get to Kingdom of Ash this winter.
