Autumn TBR – 30-ish Books I’d Like To Read This Fall

Well, I had so much fun making progress on my TBR with the 20 Books of Summer Challenge run by Cathy at 746 Books, that I’ve been inspired to make a TBR list for the Autumn! (Thanks, Cathy, I owe this all to you!) Going to run this from September 3rd through December 3rd and see how many of these I can cross of my list.

Rewind Challenge Books

Since I’m doing Tammy’s Rewind Challenge, where the goal is to read some books from our backlists before the end of the year, I’m going to add a few of those to this list. I chose five books altogether for the challenge. Here are the three I’m going to read first.

  1. The Fated Sky by Mary Robinette Kowal – physical book
  2. City of Lies by Sam Hawke – physical book
  3. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco – physical book

r/Fantasy Bingo Books

These are some books featuring vampires that will count for bingo. Two of them are also anticipated reads for Fall, so that works out as a double bonus for me! The other three I’m specifically reading just for bingo.

  1. The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – audiobook
  2. Grave Importance by Vivian Shaw – physical book
  3. Crimson Nightmare by Zoey Rivera – ebook
  4. Those Who Hunt the Night by Barbara Hambly – audiobook
  5. Slayer by Kiersten White – audiobook

2019 Releases

This is a mix between books released earlier in the year that I haven’t gotten to yet, and books that will be released this Fall. There are quite a few books coming out this Autumn that I’m looking forward to, but I know I won’t get to all of them so I only added the highest priority books here, since these are the ones I’ll most likely be picking up anyway.

  1. Wicked Fox by Kat Cho – audiobook
  2. Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim – physical book
  3. Soul of the Sword by Julie Kagawa – audiobook
  4. Dark Age by Pierce Brown – audiobook
  5. Part-Time Gods by Rachel Aaron – audiobook
  6. This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal el-Mohtar & Max Gladstone – physical book
  7. Silver in the Wood by Emily Tesh – physical book
  8. Master of the World by Edward Willett – eARC – Due before Sept 10th
  9. To Be Taught, If Fortunate by Becky Chambers – physical book
  10. Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell – audiobook
  11. Darkdawn by Jay Kristoff – audiobook
  12. Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Steifvater – audiobook
  13. The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black – physical book

Book Club Books

These are books for various book clubs I’m a part of / run. I don’t know what all of these will be yet, we do monthly polls for HEA. But I think it’s important I reserve a slot for them.

  1. Sept HEA book – TBD
  2. Oct HEA book – TBD
  3. Nov HEA book – TBD
  4. Salem’s Lot by Stephen King – Fancy Tea Book Club – due October

Bonus Books

These are books I’d also like to get to and if I have time I will squeeze them in, if not they’ll stay in my TBR for a little while longer.

  1. Bobbles & Broomsticks by Nancy Warren – ebook
  2. Siege & Sacrifice by Charlie N. Holmberg – physical book
  3. Desdemona and the Deep by C.S.E. Cooney – ebook
  4. The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett – physical book (for review)
  5. The Vine Witch by Luanne G. Smith – physical book (for review)

Leftovers from Summer TBR

You may notice that these are TBD slots. These are for books that I’m anticipating not finishing from my Summer TBR pile–not sure which books they’ll be yet! Not to worry, the titles will be added on my first update post. Ideally….I’ll have finished my Summer TBR before September 3rd. But….well, we all know how plans go. πŸ™‚

  1. TBD
  2. TBD
  3. TBD
  4. TBD

To Sum Up

I think I have a good mix of print and audio this time around. With more audios, that makes this list a little more doable, but we’ll see how things go. Also, several of these are shorter books and / or novellas, so I think that will help me get through more of these as well (I know this list seems ambitious). The only two that I see might take me longer to get through would be City of Lies, Salem’s Lot,Β and Dark Age – only because I sometimes have issues getting through epics quickly, same with thick tomes. Dark Age is almost 34 hours long. Wait. Let me state that again. 34 HOURS LONG. (Whyyyyyyyy). Ahem. Still, I feel good about this mix of books and I’m looking forward to seeing how I do with this ambitious TBR. Wish me luck!

    What a great combo of audio, ebook and physical books! Some of those are on my TBR as well. I can’t wait to try Spin the Dawn and Wayward Son! πŸ˜€ Which one are you looking forward to reading the most?

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Thanks, I’m trying to get the combo right so I actually have a shot of getting them all in during the timeframe LOL.
      Oh, that’s so hard to pick. Probably between these three: Darkdawn, Grave Importance, and The Queen of Nothing. But there are so many and I bet one of the ones I’m not quite as hyped for (only moderately hyped) will end up being my favorite because I’m often surprised like that. πŸ™‚

  2. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum says:

    Ooh, reminds me to make my Fall reading list! I’m always excited to make lists, but it also reminds me all the books I didn’t manage to get to in the summer. I should be a little less ambitious this time, I think πŸ˜›

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Oh, that’s interesting. I don’t know what I expect, but I hope I like it. Sometimes I just grab things because people I know liked them so I’m like ‘sure, I’ll check it out’ and go in with no expectations. Surprises await! lol

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Yeah, I really enjoyed working off of my 20 Books of Summer TBR. Definitely helped keep me focused, but also takes into account my mood reading and gives me a larger pool of books to pick and choose from. (Until I get near the end of the period and I’m suddenly not in the mood for the ones I have left, whoops lol). Hope you have fun with it!

  3. marydrover says:

    I have been hoarding books all year for Halloween specifically, which is rounding out to be about 15 books currently, so I’m glad I’m not the only one with big autumn plans, haha.

  4. Realms of My Mind says:

    SUCH a good list, and a good mix of backlist and new. I’m trying to use RRSciFi Month in November as a big backlist sci-fi catch up (I think so far only 2 of my intended reads are 2019 releases). December is going to hopefully be clean up of a bunch of stuff I never got to this year, trying really hard not to tackle anything that wasn’t on one of my 11 previous TBRs for the year.

    • waytoofantasy says:

      Thanks! December is definitely going to be a catch up month for me too. There’s only one book coming out I plan to read and two books left (hopefully if I get through the others beforehand) left on my Rewind Challenge. Despite me playing a bit of catch up with books over the Summer and now with this TBR…I’ll still be behind LOL. There’s just so many good books coming out all the time, we’re spoiled really.

  5. PerfectlyTolerable says:

    34 hours?!?!? The longest Audiobook I have is 27 hours (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) and I know its got a couple chapters of the next book in it so its not actually that long.

    I can’t wait for Darkdawn and Queen of Nothing!!! ❀

    Good luck with all your reading!

  6. theorangutanlibrarian says:

    Awesome tbr!! I’ve been meaning to read bone witch forever! And ten thousand doors of January sounds good! I really liked the soul of the sword- hope you do too! And so many exciting new releases to look forward to- especially wayward son, call down the hawk, queen of nothing and dark age!

    • waytoofantasy says:

      I’ve also been meaning to read The Bone Witch since forever, it’s been in my TBR pile way too long. πŸ™‚ This fall is full of awesome books! We’re very lucky readers right now. πŸ™‚
