Top Ten Tuesday :: Autumn TBR

March 21, 2018

Ok, so, first things first - yes it's Wednesday and this is my Top Ten Tuesday post... but I loved this week's theme so much that when I didn't get to it yesterday I didn't want to miss out on talking about it, so figured I'd go ahead anyway!

Top ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's prompt was to talk about the top ten books on my autumn TBR.
Like many readers, I have a GIANT TBR. I'm pretty sure that if someone made a t-shirt with a Bron quote on it, it would say "oooh I have that book... but I haven't read it yet" haha. A not insignificant proportion of my life is probably spent thinking about my TBR, planning the order to read my TBR, juggling library loan due dates, and justifying to myself buying more books despite my TBR.

For this task I've pulled the 10 books I would most like to read over the next three months, but in no particular order - these might not be the next ten books I read, but I definitely want to get through them all in the next little while. There's a mix of library books, ARCs I've been sent for review, #loveozya, and things I want to read for challenges/because they're on award short lists. Also, these are all Australian books AND almost all women writers!

Tin Heart - Shivaun Plozza
This one is a new #loveozya release, which also happens to be the first book for the new book club starting at my favourite local bookstore. =)

Untidy Towns - Kate O'Donnell
This is #loveozya on the longlist for the Australian Book Industry Awards Book of the Year for Older Children - which I'm really hoping to read.
My Life as a Hashtag - Gabrielle Williams
More #loveozya from the ABIA Book of the Year for Older Children longlist

Small Spaces - Sarah Epstein
I'm super excited to read this brand new #loveozya thriller, which Walker books were kind enough to send me a review copy of =)

Whisper - Lynette Noni
I won't bore you with the story of how much I love Lynette Noni (again), but I'm was so thrilled when Pantera Press sent me an advance review copy of this upcoming #loveozya release.

Obsidio - Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
These two are pretty much #loveozya royalty at this point. This was one of my most anticipated new releases for 2018 AND I'm headed to Melbourne to see them both at the end of April, and the following week seeing Jay again - at the Sydney Writers' Festival All Day YA event. SO EXCITED.

Reckoning - Magda Szubanski
I have had this one out from the library for a little while now, but just can't return it unread because I really want to read it! This is going to be my celebrity memoir for the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge.

The Life to Come - Michelle de Kretser
This one is on the Stella Prize shortlist, which definitely want to read (I'm halfway through!)

Terra Nullius - Claire G Coleman
Another book from the Stella Prize shortlist. While I'm only halfway through the list, based on what I've heard I have a little feeling that maybe this will be the winner... Also, Claire G. Coleman is going to be on the same panel as Jay Kristoff at the SWF All Day YA =)

The Lily and the Rose - Jackie French
This is another review copy I was sent, this time by Harper Collins. I have just finished reading the first book in this series, and I really loved it, so I'm excited to see what happens next.

So that's my top ten autumn TBR wishlist... I'd love to know what you thought of any of these if you've read them! And don't forget to pop over to see the other posts for this week over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

  1. I don't know much about these since they are all Australian - but I'm happy to hear about some good Australian reads. I'm always trying to read more outside the U.S. and I do love Australia (from my one visit there). Enjoy your spring reading!
