Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish

The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski - Described by Rutkoski as "a fantasy with no fantasy in it", this sounds intriguing, and Daphne from Winged Reviews is a big fan and lent me her copy, so I definitely want to get to it soon.

Rock War by Robert Muchamore - I love Muchamore's CHERUB series and have been meaning to read this since... ummm, I'm not going to specify when. I may have had Debbie from Snuggling on the Sofa's copy for rather a long time. (Sorry Debbie!)

Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks - I'm a huge fan of the Jeeves and Wooster series so was thrilled - if a little apprehensive - when I heard Faulks was writing a new one. I've seen some really good reviews, with fellow Wodehouse fan Sue at The Bookbag liking it a lot, and so I'm definitely expecting to enjoy it.

This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper - I was lucky enough to get an invite to a screening of the film of this book on Monday - thanks Charlie/Orion Books! - and got a copy there. I'm a huge fan of Tropper's How To Talk To A Widower, and the film was great, so definitely want to read this one soon.

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch - Scott was awesome at NineWorlds and Daphne's reading this at the moment; it sounds great! I have it for Kindle and am planning on starting it one lunchtime soon.

The Relic Guild by Edward Cox - If Ed's writing is as good as his hugs, this will be amazing! I've actually just started this and so far, if anything, it's even better than I expected.

The Copper Promise by Jen Williams - I got a signed copy of this (with an awesome dragon drawn in it!) at the superb Fantasy in the Court event held at Goldsboro Books last month. I have heard so many great things about this one, as well!

The Art of Being Normal by Lisa Williamson - This is the only YA on the list that I don't have a copy of, but I need to put that right soon! (Although possibly not THAT soon; release date is 1st January, I believe, so putting it on an autumn TBR list may be optimistic.) But George Lester and Charlie have both been raving about it and they have great taste!

The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth by Julia Lee - Meeting Julia again at #ukmgsocial last weekend reminded me I've had this a while and somehow still haven't read it! I definitely need to put that right.

The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury - Yes, I've already read it. Yes, I need to read it again - firstly because it is THAT AMAZING and secondly because I think my copy is probably going to be in demand from other bloggers soon. (Also, the 'review' I wrote after it basically reads "OMG MEL IS FAB OMG THIS BOOK IS GREAT OMG I EVEN LIKE THE LOVE TRIANGLE!" and I probably owe it to the book to reread to write one that's at least semi-coherent.


  1. Great List! I really want to read The Winner's Curse as well.

  2. Many people seem to be reading The Lies of Locke Lamora lately so I will have to check it out to see if it would interest me.
    I hope you enjoy everything on your list.
    Happy reading!
