Top Ten Tuesday – Books On My Fall 2018 TBR

I’ve finally decided to join in with Top Ten Tuesday as I always see so many amazing bloggers taking part. It’s hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and you can find all the information and upcoming prompts over on her blog.

This week’s prompt is:
Books on My Fall 2018 TBR. 

First up on my Fall TBR are my re-reads of Maggie Stiefvater. I always read The Scorpio Races on November 1st and plan to reread the Raven Cycle at the end of this month. There’s something about the atmosphere of these books that makes you want to curl up in front of a fire with them whilst drinking hot chocolate.

The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
The Dream Thieves – Maggie Stiefvater
Blue Lily, Lily Blue – Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater

I always re-read The Shining around Halloween so that’s on my Fall TBR. The other four books are ones I’ve been meaning to get around to for months.

Vicious – V.E. Schwab
The Shining – Stephen King
Everless – Sara Holland
The Cruel Prince – Holly Black
The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson

I’m looking forward to reading everyone else’s posts and can’t wait to answer next week’s prompt (Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read).

    I love rereading books in Autumn!
    Good luck with your TBR 🙂 I could never get into the The Raven Boys series when I tried.

      Thank you! I think people seem to either love or hate the Raven Boys.

    I love SCORPIO RACES, too. Why November 1st for the re-read?
    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

      The first sentence is of the Scorpio Races is “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die” so that’s why I re-read it on November 1st! I don’t do a real-time re-read though as I can’t pace myself. My TBR pile is almost 400 so you’re doing really well!!

    I’ve been meaning to read (and actually finish) The Shining for years, but I always end up putting it down for some reason. And I’m reading The Cruel Prince right now and it’s not really my thing because I’m not a big fantasy reader, but you’ll probably enjoy it a lot more than me 🙂

      I read the Shining for the first time when I was 13 and, for some reason, I adored it so I hope you finish it eventually. I’ve heard a few people say they disliked the Cruel Prince but fingers crossed I enjoy it.

    I’ve read THE SHINING, but it’s been a looonnggg time. I think I’m too wimpy to read it now. It never fails to creep me out. Just the word “redrum” sends chills down my spine 🙂

    Happy TTT!

      I get scared every time I read it but can’t resist! I always make sure I’m facing the door too 😂.

    Ooh. I read The Raven Cycle last year and liked it, but didn’t fall overly in love with it like.. so many people do? I’ve been meaning to reread it but I’m waiting until I’m really eager to pick them up again. Maybe that’ll change my mind and make me fall in love with them the second time, haha.

    I already read Everless and The Cruel Prince – especially loved the latter! I even own.. different copies because of the drool-worthy covers, haha. Hope you love it as much as I did. 😀

    And I read The Shining last year. The animal bushes freaked me out big time, but I’m a huge pussy. Still going to try and tackle IT this October though so.. we’ll see how much sleep I get.. :’) Guess you won’t be bothered by it that much since you’re rereading it, haha.

    Here’s my TTT should you be interested. 😀

      I definitely think people have strong opinions about the Raven Cycle one way or the other. It seems to divide a lot of readers! My sister bought me the B&N edition of the Cruel Prince when she was in New York so I’m eager to finally read it. I read IT last year I think and enjoyed it. Wasn’t as creepy as I expected!

    Good luck with your Fall TBR! I love that you are ambitious enough to try to start and finish a whole series. I haven’t read The Raven Boys yet, but so many readers have raved about it!

      Thank you! I’m hoping to start TRC on Sunday and read the series over that week.
