Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall 2019 TBR

So, I kind of forgot to post this yesterday! It’s not a Tuesday, but here comes another TTT! This week’s topic is the Fall TBR. Since fall’s already begun, and I have a September TBR in place, I’ll just post my TBR for October and November (I don’t count December into fall eh.). October is, as last year, reserved for spookies, and I decline to read anything non-spooky during next month. So I can cram everything else into November, yay! Btw, November is my busiest month of the year, as me, my sister AND my bff have birthdays then, and that’s already too much lol, I can’t promise I’ll read anything. So take this list with a chunk of salt.

1. ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King (A buddy read with Kara)

salems lot

I’m continuing my King reading with Kara, who’s an awesome buddy reader, but I already called dibs on her, so move away. After Pet Sematary, we’re moving on to some vampires, yeah!

2. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier

Rebecca

I’ve bought Rebecca last year, and meant to read it during last October, but you know I have trouble keeping my bookish promises.. Anyway, a Gothic romance is perfect for this time of year, can’t wait!

3. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

Hmm, yet another one from my last October’s TBR, whoops. This time I WILL read it, because it’s all the rage now. Other than the super creepy short story retelling of it (A Human Stain), there’s a novel retelling (Look down), AND the next season of the best creepy series in the world, The Haunting of Hill House, will be set in the Bly manor. *creepy music intensifies*

4. The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware (Yup, a retelling of the above mentioned)

the turn of the key

I’ve hears it’s good and creepy! So of course I will read it, and being a retelling of a creepy classic is a huge plus.

5. The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter

23281612

Yet another one from my last year’s spooky list, I already know I’ll love it because it’s been recommended to me by people with great taste (Hi Amalia!), and I love short stories, and creepy fairy tale stuff.

6. Melmoth by Sarah Perry

Melmoth

Another recommendation from my dear friend Amalia, I’ll read this one solely because of her, and I know I won’t be left disappointed because we have such similar tastes. 🙂 This is another Gothic, and I have a feeling I’ll love it!

7. Twelve Nights at Rotter House by J.W. Ocker (ARC)

twelve nights at rotter house

A creepy ARC I randomly requested, because haunted house! Hopefully it’s unknown and underrated because it has just a handful of reviews on GR. :/

8. Resurrection Girls by Ava Morgyn (ARC)

Resurrection girls

Another ARC I requested, but this one because of the cover, oops. 😀 Also, it sounds creepy and cool.

9. All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

All the crooked saints

This book’s been standing above my bed for a long time, looking at me all sad and stuff, and I want to read more of Maggie’s novels, so it’s time!

10. The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M. Valente

the girl who soared over fairyland

It’s also time to continue reading at least one of the billion series I started and never finished, like before I forget what’s going on. And this is a great series!


 

So, yeah, almost all of these are kind of creepy, I guess I’ll continue with spookies into November. If anyone wants to do a buddy read of 7/8/9 (One of those) let me know in the comments! I read faster when someone is forcing me! That didn’t come out right. What will you guys read during the spooky season? Some spookies perhaps? I just realized that half of my post is the word spooky. Anyway, have a great Wednesday guys, and the rest of the week too! ❤

  1. I’m yet to read any of King books. I think I read Carrie MAAAAANY years ago and I’m pretty sure I was too young for it, because that books scared the *** out of me! 😀
    I’m planning to go to my local thrift books shop and see if they have any King books there, so I can read them during Halloween time. 🙂

    1. I also read The Shining maaaany years ago, and I only remember the film plot, so I should give it a re-read soon. 😀 Yup, I’m pretty sure I was too young for the Exorcist at 13 too, but bless our parents. xD I definitely recommend Misery as your “first” King read, but if you’re looking for spooky then I suggest Pet Sematary. 🙂
