Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR
Oh what? It’s no longer Tuesday? Well I couldn’t resist, because this is the kind of list I love to make (and then completely ignore while I request for other books at the library!).
Anyway, it is officially fall! The leaves are changing colour, the pumpkin-spice-everything is happening (I even saw ‘pumpkin spice pumpkin seeds’ at Trader Joe’s today), the temperatures are dropping (well very slightly here – I’m still wearing shorts!). And it is time for something a little bit mysterious, a little bit foggy, a little bit unsettling in terms of reading.
The Marvels – Brian Selznick
Never mind that I have yet to read Wonderstruck, the absolute gorgeousness of the cover of his new book just calls out to me – Read Me! Read Me! (or at least Covet Me!). Judging from the cover, it has something to do with a ship. And going by his first book, Hugo, which I adored, the illustrations will be absolutely breathtaking.
Fates and Furies – Lauren Goff
Because every book-related website seems to have put this on its must-reads of the season! So of course I’m curious! Also a note to myself that I have Goff’s Arcadia on my shelves, unread.
The Electrical Field – Kerri Sakamoto
Thanks to Buried in Print, I have added this to my list.
Man Tiger and Beauty is a Wound – Eka Kurniawan (translated)
From Goodreads: “After half a century,” writes renowned Indonesia scholar Benedict Anderson, “Pramoedya Ananta Toer has found a successor.”
Well, I love Toer’s work (at least what I’ve read so far like Girl from the Coast) so I’m looking forward to both these books.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly – by Jean-Dominique Bauby, Jeremy Leggatt
Because I bought it at the last library sale and have yet to read it.
Charlotte Sometimes – Penelope Farmer
After reading about here at The Millions. Also because of the cover!
Ascension: A Tangled Axon Novel – Jacqueline Koyanagi
Just because it sounds like a lot of fun. And Diversiverse-related.
Girl from the Well – Rin Chupeco
Saw this on Eva’s RIP reading list and was curious!
Crossing Places – Elly Griffiths
Luanne at A Bookworm’s World talked about Elly Griffiths’ new series. I hadn’t heard of Griffiths before this so of course I added her other series to the list. Plus RIP-ish!
