Top Ten Tuesday | Books On Your Fall TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I haven't done one of these in a while - but I've been seeing people talking about the books that they want to read in the fall, basically that they want to read before the end of the year, and I've been mulling it over and over. Because I don't want to stress myself out too much, especially with my mom going to be moving (and needing help) and everything else.

First off, fall is the season of so many good books being released and also trying to figure out how to complete reading challenges before the end of the year - at least that's what is on my mind. There's a ton of new releases that I've pre-ordered and I'm looking forward to, but I'm not going to make any promises I can't keep (at least, I'm going to try not to).

  1. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo - comes out on September 29th and I've been hearing literally nothing but good things about this book, and it's a heist story in a fantasy world. I am so far sold, and I need this book in my life, one more week, I can (hopefully) survive one more week.
  2. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness - I need to finish this series before the first two books start to fade (more then they already have). I'm putting it off, mostly, because I know it's going to destroy my soul, probably, but I also need to know what happens.
  3. The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien - This might be slightly cheating, since I'm like halfway through this, but it's been taking me forever, so at this point it's like hopefully I can finish this soon.
  4. the Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie - this is for the Book Riot Read Harder challenge, I think this is going to be my book by an African author. 
  5. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab - it's honestly ridiculous I haven't read this yet, and just shows how much my reading is so messed up right now that I didn't immediately sit down and read this. I pre-ordered this, I have two copies now, I need to just get to it at some point. 
  6. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard - also for the RH challenge, a book by an author that was under 25 when the book was published, and from what I've found she was, and also something I pre-ordered that I should get to. 
  7. Zeroes by Chuck Wendig - also something I preordered, also something I should get to. I own a good number of Chuck's books for never having read one, need to read this. 
  8. The Shining by Stephen King - I, a professed King fan, have never read this. I know, it's awful, but it's going to be spooky season and I'm living in a building that is possibly haunted and also the corridors are creepy, so it seems like the perfect time to read this. 
  9. The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer - pre-ordered this one, signed. And it's AFP, but it's also one I know is going to make me sob my heart out, even though it's also going to help. Also I'm going to use it for the 'self-help' book part of the RH challenge, I feel like it'll fit that in a not normal way. 
  10. Stonewall by Martin Duberman - this book is taking me forever to read, and I'm not sure how I'm feeling about it, but I want to keep reading it? I'm currently not focusing on it, have kind of put it to the side, but I'd like to finish in the next few months, if not then by the end of the year. Hopefully.
And I think that's my kind of off the cuff list of books, I probably should of just included all my remaining RH challenges but I decided against doing that, there's other things I want to read, too. I've still got 11 challenges left to go, though, but I haven't been overly pushing myself to finish it by the end of the year? (They've said it wasn't a year thing, and if I don't finish it by the end of the year, I still want to push myself to try and finish all of the challenges because they're definitely challenges).

Let me know what's on your fall TBR, if you did this topic, or whatever you'd like!
