Stuck on a train in the middle of nowhere somewhere between Stockholm and Gothenburg, probably 2 hours late, or 3, so why not have a go at this week’s TTT
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
top books on my fall tbr
My to-be-read piles seams to get higher and higher and I really need to do something about them and soon.
Yes, plural, they are in some strange way multiplying, the piles are starting more and more to resemble great towers than just ordinary tbr piles, towers that could bring doom and death-by-books if I’m not careful. But you know what, there are still a couple of fall releases that I just have to buy. Promise, I just have to.
Recently read The book of the unnamed midwife and The Bullet-Catcher’s Daughter and got inspired to put some more award winning/ nominated books a bit higher up on my TBR. (Which of course was only an excuse to buy some more books) oh well that’s me in a nutshell, get an idea to have a summer/ fall or whatever-theme.
There you have it, this falls reading plan, theme, tbr-ish.
Elysium by Jennifer Marie Brissett
An post-apocalyptic story that got both an Locus Award Nominee and the Philip K. Dick Award, well what am I waiting for!?
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
Got some great review and is from a Kickstarter projekt, apparently a great Space Opera and as Space Operas goes, there aren’t many that offers something new and different so I think I’ll have to give this one a try.
Memory of Water by Emmi Itäranta
Another dystopian story set in the (near) future, It’s speculative fiction, about klimat changes, water, tea and us as humans, looks beautiful and this was an must to ad to this falls tbr.
Speaking of award nominees/ winners, there are some follow-up books that are waiting in my tbr piles.
Chapelwood (The Borden Dispatches #2) by Cherie Priest
Been waiting far to long for the second (and last I think) book in the Borden Dispatches series, first book, Maplecroft was one of my favorite from last year and finally Chapelwood is here!
Unseemly Science (The Fall of the Gas-Lit Empire #2) by Rod Duncan
Read the first book The Bullet-Catcher’s Daughter just a couple of weeks ago (need to write down a review soon), such a surprise and a brilliant steampunk/ alterative history novel! Great fun!
Crux (Nexus #2) by Ramez Naam
When I picked up the first book, Nexus last year it’s been ages since I read a cyberpunk story, this story was smart, thought provoking and the author presented a plausibly future, just as it should be. The follow up book, Crux been on my tbr far too long, about time to do something about it!
Don’t know if all of the books will be read this fall, but at least I have a plan, right?
What are you planning to read this fall?
