Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR

I know it’s Wednesday, and that I forgot to do this yesterday, but what you need to know about that is: shut up. Orange is the New Black is taking over my life. It’s friggin’ awesome. It makes me very excited and happy and it makes me irrationally angry, like at Caputo’s moustache, and at Larry. And I friggin’ love Fischer. I just met her and I love her. Anyways. This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is top ten books on your fall TBR list. I chose books I’m excited to read this fall. Yeah. It’ll be great. As always, this meme is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish and let’s go.

The Sequels
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Yeah, the first book, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, was fucking amazing. It was so, so GOOD. The story is astounding, the love story was beautiful, the characters are so fantastic, there are chimaera, which made me so excited. I love it when there are different supernatural characters, not more vampires. But finally, the WRITING is so fantastic. It is so poetic, so beautiful, so lyrical and wonderful. The way Laini Taylor uses words is just astounding. Oh my God. I’ve heard the second book is less lyrical, but it’s still awesome sauce, so I’m excited.

The Hero’s guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy
This is a middle grade book and the first book, The Hero’s guide to Saving Your Kingdom, is really hilarious. It’s sort of a fairy tale retelling where Christopher takes the Princes Charming, Fredric (Cinderella’s Prince), Gustav (Rapunzel’s Prince), Liam (Sleeping Beauty’s Prince) and Duncan (Snow White’s Prince), and sends them on their own adventure. The boys are sick of just being Prince Charming and the girls getting the attention. They find a plot to take down the kingdom and they go to fix it. It was hilarious and I hope the sequel is equally delightful

The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente
The first book is really freaking awesome, and I've wanted to read the second one forever. I'm not entirely sure why I haven't read it yet, but I'm so excited to read it.  

Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan
This is the last book in a trilogy. A trilogy I started reading with quite a lot of cynicism. I didn’t really think I’d like it. I thought it would be silly and Twilight-y. I don’t know what it is, but it’s just very delightful and not Twilight-y. The series is awesome. I love it. I have read the first two, and I’m deeply excited to read the last one. I need it to be awesome. I need to read about Nastasya and Reyn, I need the awesome-ness and the weirdness.

The standalones
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
I have an A-Z challenge on Goodreads and I needed an author for Y. And Yovanoff seems awesome. The book is about a kid named Mackie who was moved from his world to our world. He wants to be normal and not be a Replacement. It sounds so intriguing, and Yovanoff sounds really cool. I’m very excited. Also: gorgeous, creepy cover.

Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
Vampire with a conscience and a unicorn, awesome. Also the vampire seems consciences, but she isn’t Angel from Buffy. It’s about a vampire who gets stabbed in the heart by a unicorn and she becomes a vampire who can withstand sunlight and all that fun stuff. It sounds cool.

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black
This is a book I wanna read because John Green said it was good and it’s about vampires, good vampires, not good as in good hearted. Good as in good, creepy vampires, it’s exciting. It’s about a girl who wakes up after a massacre and something about becoming a vampire. I’m not sure what the thing is, but it seems really cool.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
People keep saying this book is amazing. A girl moves in with a foster family in 1939 in Nazi Germany. She learns how to read from her foster father and she shares stolen books with her neighbours, and the Jewish man her foster family is hiding in the basement.

The Prague Cemetery by Umberto Eco
So I can finish my A-Z challenge I need an author starting with E. And I chose Mr Eco. It’s about Europe in the 19th century. There are secret police, massacres and black masses. What if there is just one man behind all of the conspiracies. It sounds cool and exciting and history fiction like. I’m excited.

The Dust of 100 Dogs by A. S. King
The book is about a young pirate lady in the 17th century. Then she is cursed and doomed to live one hundred lives as a dog before becoming a human again, with all her memories. Now she’s an American teenager who needs a shovel and a ride to Jamaica. It sounds damn awesome. I love pirates. I grew up on pirates. I love pirates, and I think it’s going to be hilarious.
