Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 TBR List

Posted September 16, 2013 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 71 Comments


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at the other blog I write for, The Broke and the Bookish.

I love fall! I love when the leaves start to turn, the air gets crisp, and all the books start being released! It’s a really exciting time of year. :) There are so many amazing books I hope to get to this fall, and here are my top ten. :) All but one are ARCs, and I’ve got an ARC of the Diana Peterfreund’s next book, Across a Star-Swept Sea, that comes out next month, so I need to get reading! I’m so excited for them both!


1. Cress by Marissa Meyer
2. Revelations by J.A. Souders
3. Being Sloane Jacobs by Lauren Morrill
4. For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
5. Hostage Three by Nick Lane
6. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman
7. Lovestruck in London by Rachel Schurig
8. The Boy on the Bridge by Natalie Standiford
9. Alienated by Melissa Landers
10. Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano

Which books are you hoping to “fall” into over the next few months? :)

      It comes out on February 4th. I’ve got an ARC on its way from the publisher, so I’ll get to read it a bit earlier. :)

  1. I am so excited for These Broken Stars! And Perfect Ruin… and Alienated… and Across a Star-Swept Sea… and Cress! All such awesome books on your list, I can’t wait to hear what you think of them all. :D

    And I see you’re reading All Our Yesterdays – I just finished that one recently and looooved it, I hope you’re enjoying it too! :)

      All Our Yesterdays is SO good so far! I’m about halfway through, and it’s killing me to have to put it down to sleep and eat and work on schoolwork. :P

  2. First of all, I have to mention how much I love your graphics for this week’s post. They are just too cute, and those leaves really leap off the screen :)

    In terms of your choices, I absolutely cannot wait to read Alienated too, although unlike you I’ll have to wait until the new year to get my hands on it when it’s published. No worries, though! Goodness knows I have enough books to keep me busy until then. I do love a good story about aliens, though, particularly when it involves aliens falling in love with humans and vice versa. Roswell, anyone? ;)

      Thanks, Jen! It’s so much fun making the TTT graphics. :)

      Oh, don’t we always have too many books on our hands to read? Hehe. And the cover of Alienated is so pretty, that I bet I’ll want a finished copy anyway. :) I should really watch Roswell… I love TV shows like that one!

    • Jana

      FDStS has been on SO many seasonal lists of mine. I really just need to drop everything and read it.

      And thank you! The graphics are my favorite part of TTT. :)

    • Jana

      Yay! I’m so glad you liked FDStS! I’ve been really excited that it’s a retelling of Persuasion. I need to just drop everything and read it. :)

    • Jana

      BSJ sounds like so much fun, and I adored Meant to Be. VERY excited. :)

      And HOLY MOLY. Go read Scarlet!! You will love it!

    • Jana

      Cress actually comes out in February. Quite a few people got ARCs at ALA and BEA, so there’s already a lot of hype for it.

  3. I added a few of these to my TBR list. I have high hopes of making some headway on my list of review books for the rest of this year. I have two on a deadline and the rest can be shared whenever. I’m going on a bit of a blog hiatus next month so I can focus on some personal stuff and get some reading done. I’ll have lots of reviews in 2014, so that’ll freshen up the blog a bit.

      My list of review books is insane. I feel like I’m always playing catch up. Hopefully your time off helps you read lots! I think taking a break to build a schedule of reviews is a really nice way to get ahead and calm things down a bit. :)

    • Jana

      Yes, I’m not the biggest scifi fan either, but I really love The Lunar Chronicles. :)

      I got The Boy on the Bridge from Netgalley and hope to read it really soon. It sounds absolutely amazing!

    • Jana

      Oh, thank you! :)

      I haven’t seen any early reviews for Alienated! I’m just excited all on my own, but I’m so glad to hear it’s getting great feedback! *runs to look for reviews*

  4. I really liked For Darkness Shows the Stars, I hope you do too! I’m excited about Cress! These Broken Stars is on my list, and I’ve been wanting to read The Boy on the Bridge, but a lot of the others I haven’t heard of. I’m going to have to look at all of them and probably add them all to my TBR!

      Hehe. I love helping people find books to put on their TBRs! Makes me feel better for having SO many!

      I’m so glad you liked FDStS! I’m really excited about it. :)

    • Jana

      It’s AOY AMAZING!?! I’m loving it so much! I’ll have to keep an eye out for your final thoughts on it. :) I’m hoping to finish it tonight or tomorrow.

      Bah! Make Cinder and Scarlet a priority ASAP! They are amazing!

  5. Ah, I want to read Lovestruck in London! I requested it from Netgalley but got the no go. Ah well. I’ll find it somehow. I had a lot of fun making my list. I know some people went with books they want to read this fall that were published any time but I decided to do all new releases. I ended up with 12…eek! Too many books, not enough time. :)

      I hate it when I get denied on Netgalley… I was lucky enough with this one, though. I hope you get to it soon!

      And I know what you mean about there being so many books, yet not enough time. It was really hard to nail down only 10. :)

    Hmm, I’ve never heard of any of these books, but they all have BEAUTIFUL covers! Thank you for posting about them!
