TTT: Hopes for Fall Reading

The delightful bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish host this weekly list challenge.  If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great booAk blogs to follow head on over and check them out!

The topic this week is Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List.

Here is what came to mind immediately--upcoming or fairly newish releases, starting, appropriately enough...

Release by Patrick Ness.  I was so bummed when the date I thought it would be out turned out to be the UK date.  Now it's actually coming out in the US, and I have more empathy for how the rest of the world feels waiting for US books to come out locally.

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera.  I totally impulse-bought this for myself the other night, and am debating letting a student read it first.  But what if they spoil it?  

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake is also coming out--today?  tomorrow?  Very soon.  I am feeling SO SMUG about having not read book one until just recently, although the wait for book 3 will be tough.  

I'm excited to re-read Refugee by Alan Gratz with my students.

I really want to spend some time reading Passionate Readers, by one of my teacher-heroes, Pernille Ripp.

As soon as one of my students finishes Posted by John David Anderson, I'm hoping to get a chance at it.  My daughter's class is doing it as a read-aloud, and I'd like to be able to chat about it with her. 

I also want to read Laurn Wolk's Beyond the Bright Sea and Spencer Quinn's Woof, two books she's really liked lately.  I love that she is introducing me to some books.

Speaking of reading with my kid, we're looking forward to the fall release of the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, although we won't actually read them until after she gets it from me for Christmas.

And a year after I chose it to read next, I STILL haven't cracked the covers on A Gentleman in Moscow, so I really hope I get to it this fall.  

Middle grade, fantasy, professional reading, literary fiction--I'm looking forward to an eclectic fall!


  1. I really hope that you enjoy these books! :-) I liked Release. I'm a big fan of Patrick Ness!

  2. A friend recommended a Gentleman in Moscow. I must add it to my TBR list. Happy Reading. My TTT Fall reading list

  3. Oh how on earth did I forget about the fall release of Prisoner of Azkaban?
    My husband always gets me the illustrated versions for Christmas, but it may have to be for our anniversary in November this year.
    They Both Die at the End seems to be getting great early reviews. I need to check some of his books out.
    I hope all your books turn out amazing!
    Also, I saw your reading challenge and WOW. I am so impressed!!!

  4. A very well-rounded list. I can't wait to read Adam Silvera's new book either!

  5. I don't really have the space for lots of illustrated books but as Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite HP, I have ordered that one.

  6. The dog on the cover of Woof is adorable. I’m excited for They Both Die At The End and Release. I need to get copies of those ASAP.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. I didn't know Ness had a new book coming out! I'll have to keep my eye out for that one. The Silvera book sounds really good. I have another of his books in my TBR pile I need to get to. I haven't been hearing great things about One Dark Throne.i think I might like that one!

    I hope you enjoy all of these, Wendy! Thank you for sharing.

  8. Refugee is now on my list. Thanks

  9. i really want to read three dark crowns so I can read one dark throne. Awesome picks! There are so many fall releases I am excited about and so many series I want to continue/start!

    Happy Reading!

  10. I just did a trade to get One Dark Throne, can't wait to read it! I also need to get around to reading something by Adam Silvera in the near future as well. Great list!
    Check out my Top 10

  11. I'm also looking forward to reading Release. I hope it's good!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  12. I really liked One Dark Throne, and am excited about a lot of the things Blake did in that book. I hope to read Release too.

  13. I have A Gentleman in Moscow on my TBR. I love the premise. I just read a great review of One Dark Throne that has me wanting to jump into the series! Great list!

  14. The Illustrated edition is the one I've really been waiting for. :)

    Lauren @ Always Me

  15. A really good eclectic list! I love the cover of Beyond the Bright Sea which makes me want to pick it up even though I've not heard boo about it until now. Also I love the illustrated Harry Potter editions - I am buying and hoarding them until they're all out and then will embark on a cozy re-read. Happy Reading!

  16. I hope you enjoy all these :)

  17. So, I have read the first three and they're all quite good, I hope you love them! And I really want to read Refugee at some point, I picked it up at ALA and have heard such good things. I really hope you enjoy all of these!
