Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.
This weeks theme is: Books on my Fall 2018 TBR
My favourite season is (almost) here. I absolutely love curling up with a hot drink and a brilliant book while the weather outside turns cooler. There also seems to be some fantastic sounding books either just out or coming very soon, so there’s plenty of (hopefully) great reading to look forward to. Here’s a selection of some of the titles that have caught my eye recently…
The Corset by Laura Purcell – I loved The Silent Companions by the same author, so I can’t wait to start this new tale, billed as a Victorian chiller.
Melmoth by Sarah Perry – The Essex Serpent was so good that I knew I’d pick up whatever Sarah Perry wrote next, and this story of folklore, superstition and legend sounds intriguing.
The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock by Imogen Hermes Gower – I’ve had this book on my TBR pile for a while now and I’ve seen some great reviews of it, so I’m hoping that I’ll start it within the next few weeks.
Transcription by Kate Atkinson – A young woman recruited into the world of espionage in 1940 sounds like a fascinating beginning to a story. This will be my first Kate Atkinson.
Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness – We’re really being spoiled at the moment, with a tv adaptation of A Discovery of Witches and a new book featuring familiar characters from the All Souls trilogy.
The Labyrinth of the Spirits by Carlos Ruiz Zafón – So exciting! I’ve read all the other Cemetery of Forgotten Books series (The Shadow of the Wind has probably had a couple of re-reads too!) so getting my hands on this new instalment is something I’m looking forward to.
The Mystery of Three Quarters of Sophie Hannah – It’s Poirot as written by Sophie Hannah. My recent discovery of Agatha Christie and especially Poirot makes me really curious to see how another author writes such a famous character.
Halloween Party by Agatha Christie – A Poirot story, and picked solely on the basis that Halloween is approaching, so why not?
The Feed by Nick Clark Windo – Everyone relies on The Feed. Then The Feed collapses. Imagine a world where the technology we use so much is suddenly no longer there, and then someone really important to you goes missing. This sounds so good.
NOS4R2 by Joe Hill – I’ve probably featured this one on an autumn themed TBR list before, so hopefully this time I’ll get around to reading it. It seems perfect for this time of year.
And so you have just some of the books featuring on my TBR list/pile at the moment. What are you hoping to read this autumn?
