Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List. The books below are all from authors whose books I have loved reading in the past. They are a mix of YA, NA, romance, women’s fiction, fantasy, etc. 


1. Without Merit by Colleen Hoover
October 3, 2017

In Colleen Hoover’s gripping novel, reminiscent of the bestselling works of Liane Moriarty and Jojo Moyes, a young woman decides to reveal the dark secrets of her seemingly-happy family before she leaves them behind, but when her escape plan fails, she must deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth.

 


2. All Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
October 10, 2017

Here is a thing everyone wants:
A miracle.

Here is a thing everyone fears:
What it takes to get one.

Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.

At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.

They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.

Maggie Stiefvater has been called “a master storyteller” by USA Today and “wildly imaginative” by Entertainment Weekly. Now, with All the Crooked Saints, she gives us the extraordinary story of an extraordinary family, a masterful tale of love, fear, darkness, and redemption.


3. Forget You, Ethan by Whitney G.
October 30, 2017

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer…

I’ve hated Rachel Dawson since I was seven years old. My next door neighbor and number one sworn enemy, she’s the reason why almost all of our childhood fights ended with me setting something of hers on fire. (Or, vice versa.)

She snitched on me when I broke curfew.
I snitched on her when she lied about having a boyfriend.

We went back and forth like this throughout high school, both vowing to never talk to each other again when we went off to college.

But that was until she showed up at my apartment during my senior year and asked me for a temporary place to stay. Until I realized just how much between us had changed, and the line I thought we’d never cross became harder and harder to ignore…


4.  Lovers Like Us by Krista & Becca Ritchie
October 31, 2017

Maximoff & Farrow’s story continues in Lovers Like Us.

The Like Us series is a true series, one continuous timeline, that follows a family of wealthy celebrities and the people that protect them.

 

 


5. Hear Me Now by Lisa De Jong
September 24, 2017

If you’re reading this letter, I’m already gone.

He told me he was going to do it, and I didn’t believe him.

I told him I would follow, but he left anyway.

Sometimes, you love someone so much that living without them isn’t an option. Ty Wise was that person for me.

Maybe this is selfish.

Maybe I should’ve stayed away when he asked.

Maybe he should’ve listened to what I told him.

Life is full of maybes.

Do you think he can hear me now?


6. Far From the Tree by Robin Benway
November 7, 2017

A contemporary novel about three adopted siblings who find each other at just the right moment.

Being the middle child has its ups and downs.

But for Grace, an only child who was adopted at birth, discovering that she is a middle child is a different ride altogether. After putting her own baby up for adoption, she goes looking for her biological family, including—

Maya, her loudmouthed younger bio sister, who has a lot to say about their newfound family ties. Having grown up the snarky brunette in a house full of chipper redheads, she’s quick to search for traces of herself among these not-quite-strangers. And when her adopted family’s long-buried problems begin to explode to the surface, Maya can’t help but wonder where exactly it is that she belongs.

And Joaquin, their stoic older bio brother, who has no interest in bonding over their shared biological mother. After seventeen years in the foster care system, he’s learned that there are no heroes, and secrets and fears are best kept close to the vest, where they can’t hurt anyone but him.


7. Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
September 5, 2017

The story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.

Imogen is a runaway heiress, an orphan, a cook, and a cheat.
Jule is a fighter, a social chameleon, and an athlete.
An intense friendship. A disappearance. A murder, or maybe two.
A bad romance, or maybe three.
Blunt objects, disguises, blood, and chocolate. The American dream, superheroes, spies, and villains.
A girl who refuses to give people what they want from her.
A girl who refuses to be the person she once was.


8. Foolish Hearts by Emma Mills
December 5, 2017

A contemporary novel about a girl whose high school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream leads her to new friends—and maybe even new love.

The day of the last party of the summer, Claudia overhears a conversation she wasn’t supposed to. Now on the wrong side of one of the meanest girls in school, Claudia doesn’t know what to expect when the two are paired up to write a paper—let alone when they’re both forced to try out for the school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

But mandatory participation has its upsides—namely, an unexpected friendship, a boy band obsession, and a guy with the best dimpled smile Claudia’s ever seen. As Claudia’s world starts to expand, she finds that maybe there are some things worth sticking her neck out for.


9. Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins
December 26, 2017

One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back.

Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There’s only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn’t necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small-town drama and big-time disappointments.

With a tough islander mother who’s always been distant and a wild-child sister in jail, unable to raise her daughter–a withdrawn teen as eager to ditch the island as Nora once was–Nora has her work cut out for her if she’s going to take what might be her last chance to mend the family.

But as some relationships crumble around her, others unexpectedly strengthen. Balancing loss and opportunity, a dark event from her past with hope for the future, Nora will discover that tackling old pain makes room for promise…and the chance to begin again.


10. Logan by Jay McLean
October 1, 2017

“Whats beneath the bravado, Logan Preston?”

  1. I’m intrigued to see what Lockhart’s next book will be like. I liked but didn’t love We Were Liars (I guessed a few of the late novel moments and felt like the cover blurb announcing a twist didn’t help because I kept trying to second guess it).

    My TTT is totally different. But if you want to drop by, I’d love for you to do so.

  2. I’m so anxious for Foolish Hearts! I keep checking NetGalley to see if they have it. So far it’s just a “wish for it” option and my wishes have not been granted. I’m hoping we can eventually request it!

  3. Awesome list!! I’m reading Without Merit now and I’m trying to read it slowly to make it last, but my review will be on my blog on 10/5………I want to read all of the books on your list!! Ugghhh, why did I look? Hahaha

  4. I am really really excited for Far From the Tree and Foolish Hearts. Both are some of my favorite authors. I’m still unsure about the spinoff KB series, but I hope it’s good for those who loved the first book.
    I hope all these books wind up being amazing!

  5. I completely forgot about All the Cooked Saints!? Maggie Stiefvater’s book are a perfect choice for the autumn. Her writing is so atmospheric and just gets me in that warm and cosy, sometime creepy autumnal head space.

    1. You haven’t? You need to start with Sincerely, Carter by Whitney G. It’s a best friends to lovers and is so much fun!!!
      As for Jay McLean, I think Kick Push or More Than This are good starting points. I think I have all of these in my reviews.

      1. I think I just got Sincerely Carter in the spring (probably because of you), and have both of those Jay McLean books, so I’ll be getting to them. Someday. 😛

        1. Awesome! Seriously, though. Bump up Carter. I’ve actually read that one twice. That’s how much I loved it. (Watch, now I overhyped it!)
