Books on My Fall TBR List

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is the list of books on my fall to-be-read list. I felt really good about my summer TBR list, so I’ve decided to go back to planning my reading a bit more.

The first are three books I’ve already started (maybe they don’t really count but I’ll give myself credit):

  • Blackout by Connie Willis
  • Babylon’s Ashes by James S. A. Corey
  • Against the Loveless World by Susan Abulwaha

Next are two are books I’ve committed to reading via NetGalley:

  • A Spindle Spintered by Alix E. Harrow
  • O Beautiful by Jung Yun

Next are books I’ll be reading for my Women Around the World book club:

  • Three Apples Fell from the Sky by Narine Abgaryan
  • The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choon

One of my favorite blog events is Nonfiction November, so I’ve got a few books cued up for that:

  • Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong
  • Don’t Touch My Hair by Emma Dabiri (recommended by Rather Too Fond of Books)
  • See What You Made Me Do by Jess Hill
  • Being Heumann by Judith Heumann

These two books are new releases in favorite series:

  • Portrait of a Scotsman by Evie Dunmore
  • Miss Kopp Investigates by Amy Stewart

And then finally, two books that meet criteria for books I’m trying to read more of: backlist, classics, and continuing in series.

  • The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren (recommended by Emerald City Book Review)
  • The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal (#2 in the Lady Astronaut series)

That’s my TBR list for the fall – have you read any of these? What books are you looking forward to?

    I hope you enjoy them all! One of my friends loved Don’t Touch My Hair and recommends it to everybody.

    Interesting to learn that planning your reading has worked for you. I’m increasingly going in the other direction and wanting to read whatever takes my fancy at the time

      I’d mostly given up on TBR lists since COVID started, and I expect I’ll continue to go back and forth. For me, a good TBR list is helpful in that there’s less decision-making about what to read and it pushes me to read books that have been on my TBR for a while. On the flip side, when reading begins to feel more like an obligation than something I enjoy, it’s time to ease up on lists and challenges.

        That’s so true, I know I went through a patch where it felt like i was feeling resentful that I couldn’t read what I wanted to and instead had a review of book club commitment. So I’ve put the book club on pause and am resisting the urge to look at NetGalley

    I just finished Miss Kopp Investigates, and really enjoyed it! I need to get back to The Expanse series — I think I might be up to Babylon’s Ashes too. And I’m also really looking forward to A Spindle Splintered! Hope you enjoy your fall reading. 🙂

      I love the Miss Kopp books! Babylon’s Ashes is a slower moving book than the previous ones, but still good. I’m trying to keep ahead of the show.

    I’ve heard good things about Portrait of a Scotsman by Evie Dunmore. And Oh Beautiful sure looks interesting. Happy reading this fall!

      I love Evie Dunmore! I Her books are the perfect combination of romance and history, and I love her characters. Happy fall reading!
