Books On My Autumn 2018 TBR| Top Ten Tuesday

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.

    I think the trend is “you read half the books you put on your seasonal TBR” so you should definitely make bigger TBR’s so you read more off them, haha! 😀

    Happy reading!

    I really want to read Spinning Silver as well, but that’s the problem when your TBR is just too long!

    I rarely actually read all the books on my seasonal TBR lists. They’re so fun to make, though 🙂

    I loved THESE SHALLOW GRAVES. It’s excellent. I hope you enjoy it and all the others on your list.

    Happy TTT!

    I’ve been wanting to reread Slasher Girls & Monster Boys, so I may join you on that one! There are a handful of stories from that anthology that I really loved. I was less a fan of the more gory ones, but I think there’s something spooky to suit everyone’s horror tastes in that book. ^_^

    Oooh, yeah I’ve seen Spinning Silver around a lot. I remember that I read Uprooted a while back, but I don’t remember much about it (I guess I didn’t love it that much? – #unpopular opinion), but I think the premise of Spinning Silver sounds really interesting, so I am thinking that I might give it a try. Anyways, what a great list (esp. the creepy books. They are perfect for Halloween)! Thanks for sharing a great post 🙂

    I also didn’t do great on my Spring and Summer TBRs. I hope you enjoy all these! I need to read Anna Dressed In Blood, too.
