Top 10 Books on my Fall TBR List

I don't know if I should consider my summer reading list a success or a failure; I read the top 5 books on the list, but the other 5 somehow slipped down the list as different books became available to me. I still exceeded my goal of 15 books (which included almost 3 books over 1000 pages), they just weren't all the books on my list. Technically there are still officially 5 more days of summer, so I have time to change that before I recap my summer reading next week. But for now, don't be surprised if you see some repeats! ;)

1. Allegiant by Veronica Roth - who isn't excited about Allegiant? I feel like I've been waiting for this book to come out for years, but I only began reading this series months ago. It's finally almost here!

2. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - A re-read to prepare myself for the movie, another wonderful thing about this fall for which I feel like I've been waiting ages!! I didn't read this in summer like I had planned, but I'm kind of glad because I'd rather read it closer to the movie's release in November.

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - There has been so much buzz about this book, and with a movie in the works, I need to read it as soon as possible! I finally downloaded it for my Kindle and can't wait!

4. Emma by Jane Austen - I've been meaning to re-read this for years! I didn't read it in summer because it just feels like more of a cozy fall read. Emma + Pumpkin Spice Latte + cool weather = heaven!

5. On Pilgrimage by Jennifer Lash - This book is my "pool book"; I keep a paperback in my car so that when I go to my mom's house to float in her pool I have something to read (since my Kindle Fire SUCKS outdoors!). Since the warm weather is winding down, I want to make it a goal to finish this beautiful book. 

6. Priceless by Nicole Richie - I'll be honest: I am so curious to read a book written by Nicole Richie. It's not that I don't think she's capable, but I'm just really curious, ya know? I got this book in hardback on clearance and it's been sitting on my desk for months, so I want to get it read.

7. The Grimm Diaries Prequels by Cameron Jace - I was fortunate enough to win these from the lovely Laura at Semper Fi Momma and I can't wait to read them! All of the books in the series seem dark enough to read around Halloween while maintaining a fun fairy tale element.

8. Snow White Sorrow (Grimm Diaries #1) by Cameron Jace - (see above)

9. Cinderella Dressed in Ashes (Grimm Diaries #2) by Cameron Jace - (see above)

10. Cinder by Marissa Meyer - In keeping with the dark fairy tale theme, Cinder sounds like a great book to read alongside Grimm Diaries. I've also heard nothing but great things about it! 

What are you planning to read this fall??


  1. I'm so ready for Allegiant to come out! I should probably read Catching Fire again too, but I'm not sure I will. I'm not TFiOS's biggest fan, but I hope you enjoy it! I hope you like Cinder, too! The Grimm Diaries sound really interesting!

  2. Good list, I loved The Fault in Our Stars and Cinder. Catching Fire is a book I need to read as well although it will be the first time for me.
