Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be chatting about some of the books on my autumn TBR as part of Top Ten Tuesday. Onto the post!
How Not to Be a Vampire Slayer- I was very kindly sent a copy of this by Scholastic and I’ve been saving it up for Halloween approaching as I think it’ll provide suitably spooky vibes. I’m a big fan of Katy Birchall but I’ve not read any of her MG yet so I’m very excited to try it (and pick up the Morgan Charmley books at some point!)
Storm Horse– this was something I got sent a review copy of that I’ve been saving for a specific review post, and it just looks like such a lovely book. I’m obsessed with the cover and I believe there are neurodivergent characters as well, written by a neurodivergent author. Yes please!
Lightning Falls– again, I was sent a review copy of this, and as I’ve really enjoyed everything Amy Wilson has released in the past, I’m sure this will be another absolute winner. I’m hoping for her trademark fabulism and lyrical writing.
The Vanderbeekers on 141st Street- this is another middle grade, although it’s one I bought in this case, and it’s about plucky siblings trying to prevent them getting evicted a few days before Christmas. I’m not sure what the other books in the series could be about as that sounds like a standalone kind of plot, but I’m intrigued nonetheless.
The Stitchers– I found out about this recently because an author I like mentioned it on Instagram, so I’m definitely planning to pick it up when it’s out in paperback! It sounds like a kind of USMG Jennifer Killick (whose books I love!!) vibe, so I think it’ll be perfect for Halloween time.
Danger at Dead Man’s Pass– I love the Adventures on Trains series so I’m excited to get stuck into the newest release in the series! I think it’s about Hal and Uncle Nat investigating a cursed family in Germany while on another train trip.
The Shadows of Rookhaven– the first book in this series was seriously one of my favourite books of 2020, so I’m dying to pick up the sequel! And the kind of Gothic tone makes it very autumnal!
Kentucky Thriller– kind of an obvious one, but I’ll be continuing with the Laura Marlin series given that I’m doing a readathon with my Mystery Society friends. I’ll be reading books 4 and 5 too of course! I love these books so, so much.
Eight Perfect Hours- if you can sense a themed rveiew post here, you may or may not be right! I loved Dear Emmie Blue by this author so I’m dying to read more of her work, and this sounds like such a fun, original love story about two people who meet, spend 8 amazing hours together, then get split apart.
Duvet Day- no doubt I’ll have at least one duvet day during the autumn months, and there surely couldn’t be a better bookish companion than this romance! It’s about a lawyer who has a duvet day and presumably falls in love, given that it’s a romance book.
Thank you so much for reading! What’s on your autumn TBR? Are you interested in anything from my list? I’d love to hear in the comments!
