Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!
September 23: Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read list.
Fall starts September 22 and ends December 20, so I’m choosing books that come out between those dates, which I’ll hope I get to read in the Fall.
1. The Brothers Cabal; Jonathan L. Howard. The last book ended with quite a cliffhanger, and though I can guess what it will be, I’m quite eager to see what Necromancer Johannes Cabal will do next.
2. Broken Soul; Faith Hunter. Vampires and werewolves and plenty of danger.
3. Foxglove Summer; Ben Aaronovitch. Another book following a cliffhanger, and poor beleaguered detectives still have to keep the peace between humans and supernatural.
4. The Future Falls; Tanya Huff. Another adventure with the Gale family, with their special women and strange magics.
5. Mortal Heart; Robin LaFevers. Assassins descended from Death, given special abilities by that inheritance–and Annith isn’t willing to be locked away for her abilities, but she might not be able to escape her fate.
6. Poison Fruit; Jaqueline Carey. It’s tough being an agent of Hel (Norse goddess), but someone has to keep the underworld from the rest of the humans.
7. Queen of Zombie Hearts; Gena Showalter. The last book in a series about zombie ghosts, and an Alice in Wonderland vibe.
8. Ravencliffe; Carol Goodman. Young women trained to fight the forces of darkness–but there’s darkness inside the school, and sacrifices will have to be made to defeat it.
9. Seventh Grave and No Body; Darynda Jones. Charley has a lot of problems–as a grim reaper, who helps souls pass on, she’s used to that–but the problems are especially piling up.
(No cover yet.)
10. Thorn of Emberlain; Scott Lynch. Gentleman Bastards–need I say more?
