Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read List

I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:

Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read List


My to-read list is... long.  Like, really, really long.  There are always a few books that I'm especially excited for, though.  Here are my most anticipated reads for this Fall!

Technically this book doesn't come out until January.  But since I might DIE if I have to wait that long, I'm including it in my Fall list.

The reviews for this one have almost exclusively been insanely positive.  I must know what all the hubbub is about.

...Oh, I'm sorry, did you want more of an explanation besides "Amy Poehler"?

A Phantom of the Opera retelling in an Asian setting?  BRING IT ON.

I'm all about retellings these days, and this Rapunzel retelling looks fantastic.

I've been checking my spot on the library's wait list on an hourly basis.  WE NEEDS IT, PRECIOUSSSS.

I love short stories, and this new book of short stories sounds fascinating.

I'm no stranger to Literature-with-a-capital-L, but for some reason this book intimidates me.  Which is why I think I should read it.

Emma Watson has taken on the film adaptation of this book, which obviously means I must read it immediately.

Because that cover is just so lovely.


What are you reading this Fall?

    1. Thanks! I'm really looking forward to reading it. I was obsessed with the Phantom musical from about age 8-14, so this book has some nostalgic appeal to me as well. Can't wait to read it!

  2. I have to be honest here, celebrities writing books is not exactly Gods gift to humanity, but if Amy Poehler has a book, then we've been gifted, and I'm gonna need it. I'd also like to read the Goldfinch but it's 800 pages are scaring me.

    1. Totally agree with you on celebrity authors - I'm not interested unless it's Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, or Mindy Kaling. Since this is Amy Poehler, though, I MUST HAVE IT.
      The Goldfinch is totally intimidating, but that's precisely why I want to read it, because it scares me. :)

  5. Oh, man! I need to pick up the Red Rising series at some point in my life! I've heard nothing but excellent things! Since I know you're a woman of great taste, I think I should also get on that Throne of Glass bandwagon -- and soon! Of Metal and Wishes is one I've been SO eager to get to, so if I cough up the dough to buy it, then I'll definitely be reading it. :)

    Great list, Melissa! I hope you find all of these reads to your liking!

    Also, I've missed you! I have to come around more often. <3

  6. Haha, I love that you put Golden Son on your list! Red Rising was awesome and IS IT JANUARY YET???

    Queen of the Tearling is great! Liked it a lot! AND HEIR OF FIRE!

    Kiss of Deception is high up on my wishlist. I'm pretty sure I'm buying it sometime this fall and read it too!

    1. RE Golden Son: I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!?!

      I'm excited for everything else, too, but I NEED Golden Son. Bad.

  7. HEIR OF FIRE: All the feelings <3
    I absolutely loved The queen of the Tearling. It has some flaws, but it was very good. Stray was okay. Happy reading :D
