TTT: My Fall TBR


I came back from holiday yesterday, and I can`t believe how quickly it went away. I know I was away for three weeks, but it`s not enough when you`re far from your family and friends. Because you have to meet with everyone, and at one point it gets time-consuming. Regardless, it was amazing to see everyone, and I had such a fantastic time in Greece. I was so tempted to run away, but sadly, I am not a millionaire. Plus, all of my books are in London, so that`s one reason to come back. Which brings us to the next topic: my fall TBR. Honestly, I never stick to these, but compiling them is so much fun. So let`s start with the books that I will probably (not) read this fall.

1-5. "It", "The Shining", "Doctor Sleep", "The Outsider", "Salem`s Lot" - Stephen King
I`d like to dedicate October to the one and only Stephen King. I have seen every adaptation of his novels, but I am ashamed to admit I have not read his books. Shocking, considering I think of myself as a big fan of his work. I have seen the new "IT" 5 times, but I`d like to read the book before the sequel comes out. The same thing goes for "Doctor Sleep". As for "The Outsider", whilst it`s a new release, the reviews have been extremely positive. The only thing that I`m worried about is the size of his books, which might make it difficult to read all of them in October. If I can`t do it, then I`ll probably dedicate November to his books as well, and add more on my TBR.

6. "The Woman in the Window" by A.J. Finn
I have not read many thrillers in my life, but it`s something I`d like to change. I don`t know if I mentioned this before, but I`m addicted to real crime shows. Or fictional for that matter, as I watched every episode of "C.S.I New York", "Castle", "Lucifer" and "Criminal Minds". From what I can tell this book is a psychological thriller that deals with agoraphobia, depression, anxiety and substance abuse; topics that I`m interested in reading about in books.

7. "You" by Caroline Kepnes
This book sounds so delightfully creepy. The story is a bit twisted, and apparently, it makes you uncomfortable, but that makes me even more intrigued. From Goodreads reviewers, I`m a tad concerned that the characters aren`t well developed, but I hope the story is engaging enough to make up for that. Also, I`ve just seen the trailer for the TV adaptation, and it looks like Lonely Boy is back to his old ways. Yeah, I`m still not over the fact that Dan was Gossip Girl. But if he was, it makes sense he`d turn into a stalker.

8. "Frankenstein" by Mary Shelly
A few months ago I binge-watched "The Frankenstein Chronicles" on Netflix, and it made me want to read the book even more. Although I`m familiar with the story, I`d like to read the book and see how I feel about it.

9/10. "Strange The Dreamer" and "Muse of Nightmares" by Laini Taylor
At the beginning of the year, I found this gorgeous edition of "Strange the Dreamer" in a charity shop for 3£, and I`m been dying to read it ever since. But I decided to wait until the sequel comes out, so I can binge-read it. I also have a terrible memory, so I`d have forgotten everything by the time "Muse of Nightmares" came out. I`m a big fan of Laini Taylor`s writing, and many readers with similar tastes adored this duology, so I have high hopes for it.

The real question now is if I`ll actually read these books. I always start with a promising TBR, and I either have a reading slump or read something else entirely. That`s one of the downfalls when you`re a mood reader. Even if I can`t get to all of these, I`m confident I`ll finish at least 4 of them. But what about you? What are you planning on reading this fall?

  1. Great list! I hope you enjoy Frankenstein, it's one of my favourite classics. I need to read some Laini Taylor - I haven't read anything by her yet and I've heard so many good things.

    1. Yes, yours is miles away. But at least your parents are here, so that`s lovely.
