Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl to bring bookish friends together. A new topic is posted each week.
So I wrote a spring TBR and read four out of eight books on that list. Wrote a summer TBR and read five out of ten books on that list. I think I can see a trend here. Do others have problems following a TBR list?
This list seem to have a couple themes: of books I wanted to read a long time ago, horror and mysterious reads as the light disappears outside and some more random books.
I wanted to read all these three books last autumn, so crossing my fingers I’ll get to them now. Hopefully they’ll give me some halloween mood.
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Blood. Young adult horror. Witches travelling around ghost hunting. Girl haunting a victorian house. It all sounds like some cozy halloween-autumn vibes.
Slasher Girls & Monster Boys
Featuring authors like Leigh Bardugo and A. G. Howard, it’s young adult horror or paranormal short stories and I’m very excited.
These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly
More young adult mystery, I don’t know much about this one except it’s about a girl trying to uncover her fathers murder or suicide. That title though.
Palace of the Damned by Darren Shan
I absolutely loved Darren Shan’s books as a kid and want to finish the Larten Crepsley saga, along with the Demonata series. It’s horror and I haven’t found books as unsettling as the Demonata series, the imagined smell and vision of rat guts still so vivid in my memory years later.
Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson
I love norse mythology, I really hope this book is a good one. This fantasy is set in Norway, my country, so please don’t let me down.
At the Edge of the Universe by Shaun David Hutchinson
I really liked “we are the ants” and am excited to read other books by the author.
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
I’ve seen so mixed opinions of this book, the sequel to Uprooted, which I adored. What is autumn without fairytales though?
The F- It List by Julie Halpern
Time to finally pick up this book? It’s been on every tbr list for so so long, like years. I don’t know why I haven’t dropped it.
The Concept of Anxiety by Søren Kierkegaard
I’m starting a new project – reading authors trying to express pain. I don’t know if this book is what I’m looking for, but as I just started psychology classes hopefully there’ll be something useful here. It’s one of those books I’ve seen recommended by someone, but cannot remember who.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman
Aahh, school projects.
