TTT: 2018 Fall TBR




With the delightful bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish moving on to other things, TTT is now hosted by just one of their contingent, That Artsy Reader Girl .  If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great book blogs to follow head on over and check it out!

The topic this week is: Books on your fall TBR.

This is always a mildly hilarious type of post for me to write. Not just because the idea of only having ten books on my TBR is so adorably off by a factor of ten or more, but because the idea of me following my own reading plan is just not believable. I've tried. I suck.




That being said, here's what I'd really like to get to soon. It's a mix of upcoming titles, recent titles, and backlist titles. Mostly YA with a tiny bit of MG and adult reads in there too. In other words, pretty  reflective of my reading habits overall. If I don't read THESE exact 10 books this fall, I'll read books like them.




1. Breakout by Kate Messner. I've been wanting to read this since she was blogging about pieces of her process with it. I love her writing, and I love the work she does to connect teachers and authors, so I really want to support her books. It's in my classroom library. I talked a friend into getting it, and she really enjoyed it. But I haven't read it yet.






2. Vicious. Victoria Schwab has been tweeting reminders that if we started a re-read of Vicious right now, we'd be done just in time for the second book in the set. I am fully planning on going to see her on tour in less than two weeks, and I will buy and have her sign the book then. So it would indeed be terrific if I were to re-read the book in time for that.







3. Give Me Some Truth. I loved his If We Ever Get Out of Here. I finally started reading this more recent book, which I got at ALAN in November, last month. It has been showing up on my email signature as "currently reading" for WEEKS now. But I haven't actually picked it up since that first time. Not because I didn't like it--I DID really like it. But I got distracted.







4. Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor. I am really hoping I can get the most out of this without re-reading Strange the Dreamer, because it's a big ass book, and I have small ass time.







5. What if It's Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. Because it's by Becky Albertalli AND Adam Silvera.







6. Lily and the Octopus by Steven Rowley. It sounds good. It has a rather cute dauschund on the cover. It would qualify for my (very neglected) Pop Sugar Reading Challenge as a book with an animal in the title. And I've had it checked out from the library for nine weeks. I just renewed it for the fourth and final time, so now I have three weeks to actually read the damn thing.






7. She is Not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick. Um. This one already went through all four renewals. I had it on my shelf for 12 weeks. I did not turn it in when I brought back all my due and overdue library books because dammit, I'm going to read it.






8. Resistance by Jennifer A. Nielsen. I liked The False Prince. I loved A Night Divided. I'm so excited she's written another middle grade modern historical fiction!






9. Being the Change by Sara K. Ahmed. This is THE book teachers are talking about right now.





10. Dry by Neal and Jarod Shusterman. I think Shusterman just keeps getting better and better, and I got to hear him talk about the idea for this book when I went to an author event last winter, so I'm super excited to read this father-son effort.




Here's to some happy reading this fall!

  2. What If It's Us is easily one of my most anticipated reads right now, hah!
    I haven't read any of Schwab's books yet, to be honest. I do have the ADSOM-trilogy on my TBR. Hoping to get to that one soonish, but I need to finish some series before starting more.

    Here's my TTT should you be interested. :D

  3. What If It's Us is on my TBR too. I really wish it to be amazing.
    I hope you enjoy all of these books.

  4. Yeah, I've also been looking forward to What If It's Us for a long time.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  5. Let me see if I can find Being the Change around here. It looks like a book that people should be talking about.

  6. I'm so excited for Muse of Nightmares and What If It's Us! I hadn't heard of Dry before, but it sounds really intriguing.

  7. I've heard Lily and the Octopus is super sad, which is probably why my copy sits on my shelf still unread. Hope you love all of these and I WILL read it one day!

  8. Haha, I have the same problem with not reading the books on my TBR. I don’t think I finished any of the other seasonal TBRs I made. I’ve read She Is Not Invisible. It’s not my favorite Sedgwick book, but it’s pretty good. Vicious is awesome. I can’t wait for the sequel. A bunch of the other books you listed are on my TBR list.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. I'm so excited for Muse of Nightmares! The way Strange ended I've been dying to get my hands on it. If you do decide to reread it and like audios, I highly recommend this one. The narrators are great! But I totally understand not having time to reread. I'd love to reread Throne of Glass before Kingdom of Ash releases, but that ain't happening. Hope you enjoy all of these!

    Here's my TTT.

  10. MUSE OF NIGHTMARES should be on my list, too since I loved the first book in the series. LILY AND THE OCTOPUS is really a touching book, but you have to get past the silliness.
    I read these lists and I start to panic. There are so many books out there that I haven't even heard of and now I want to look into them. But my TBR is already over 100 books long. If I just read them it would take me over a year to finish the list without adding new titles (which I do all the time.) Eek! My Fall TBR list

  11. I'm glad I'm not the only one who renews books as many times as possible and still doesn't read them. I just returned one yesterday that I never managed to read. I seriously considered holding onto it and paying the fine (since that would force me to read it quick!), but I decided not to this time. LOL!

  13. I liked Give Me Some Truth. I especially liked Carson's journey. Breakout looks really good. I am all over the mixed format.

  14. I loved this list! Also on the author visits :)

  15. Oh my gosh, yes! I have several of your books on my radar too. Vicious is the one that I am most looking forward to. She is awesome sauce!

  16. I still haven't read Strange the Dreamer! I'm not sure why, as I know I'm going to love it!

    My TTT post!

  17. Muse of Nightmares is on my TBR as well. Unlike Wildcard, which I knew I would read in one day, I'm pretty sure it's going to take me a few days to read, assuming that it's as long as Strange the Dreamer.
