Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 To-Be-Read List

“Top Ten Tuesday” is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is the Top Ten Books On My Fall 2013 To-Be-Read List.

So, as it turns out, I’m not the best at sticking to even the best laid plans. Given that I only read three of the books listed on my last ‘to-be-read’ list (See: Top Ten Books On My Summer To-Be-Read List), I wouldn’t blame you if you decided to take this next one with a pinch of salt. But I really do have the best intentions, I swear! Plus, with a list that includes three of my most highly-anticipated releases of 2013 (Where The Stars Still Shine, Fangirl, and This Song Will Save Your Life) you can be sure that I’ll try my hardest to be more diligent when it comes to sticking to my list this time around πŸ˜‰ And no, you’re not seeing double – Eleanor & Park was included on both lists. At this point I think I’ve waited so long to read it and been exposed to such a vast amount of hype that I’m now more than a little intimidated. But I will read it, and soon!

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Tell The Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt

2) Where The Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller

3) The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

4) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

5) The Infinite Moment Of Us by Lauren Myracle

6) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

7) This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales

8) The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

9) Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

10) Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

  1. I’ve heard SUCH great things about Tell the Wolves I’m Home! I think I need to add it to my Winter TBR. I was actually disappointed with Fangirl for various reasons, but I’m among the minority (although I REALLY REALLY hope I can make it to T.O for the signing in October!!!).

    I’m also hearing a lot of love for This Song Will Save Your Life. Oh, The Probability of Miracles is on my shelf. Maybe another winter book for me, haha!

    I need to read Gone Girl too!

    Great list Jen!

    My TTT list.

  2. I absolutely ADORED Fangirl. I’ve never connected with a character like I connected to Cath, so it was an amazing read for me. I’m also SUPER excited for Where the Stars Still Shine, and This Song Will Save Your Life! You’ve got great books on your TBR list, I bet you’ll have an easy time sticking to it. πŸ˜‰

  3. I totally forgot to include all those wonderful books that are coming out this fall — yay for Fangirl! I’m super excited to read that one. And is Mara Dyer REALLY coming out? I thought it was fall, but the date changed on Goodreads to next year … I was sad.

    I just started Me Before You yesterday … it’s really good so far!

  4. That cover of Mara Dyer’s final book does *things* to me. Cannot wait! I’ve also been wondering about Gone Girl since a lot of people love the book (even my fave author love it) but there seems to be a lot who dislike it too… Should I or should not I give the book a try?

    And E&P and Me Before You are a ‘must-read soon’! Those are my ultimate faves <3

  5. YAYAY for WTSSS!! And I love the mix of contemporaries you have there– they are all/seem fabulous!! And I still need to read something by Gillian Flynn. I know you love her writing, so best of luck! Great post, Jen πŸ™‚

  6. Fangirl was amazing! I’m not very good at sticking to these seasonal TTT either. I think I read like 3 or 4 of the books that were on my summer TBR. Where the Stars Still Shine was also one of my favorite books I read this year. I haven’t read Tell the Wolves I’m Home, but it sounds phenomenal & I hope to read it soon as well. Also, I have never heard of The Probability of Miracles, but that cover left my jaw dropping. it’s stunning!

  7. Oh, Fangirl! I have that one, and really need to read it. Same with This Song will Save Your Life and The Infinite Moment of Us. I’m also really intrigued by Gone Girl. What a great list!

    Oh, and I’ve always loved your TTT graphic/button. It’s one of my favorites around the blog world! Thanks for stopping by my TTT today, and for your comment, which was awesome as always. πŸ™‚

  8. Haha! I’m the same way – I never stick to TBR lists I make. I always mean to, but then, before I know it, the season is over, and I’ve only read a book or two from my list.

    Anyway, Fangirl & Eleanor & Park are AMAZING! If you read nothing else from your list, do read those two. I just love them so much. Rainbow Rowell has quickly become one of my favorite authors.

    Happy Autumn Reading!

  9. Jen! I love your list! It’s wonderfully designed as always. I really think (hope!) you’ll enjoy This Song Will Save Your Life. It’s one of the best books I’ve read this year. I wasn’t a fan of The Probability of Miracles or Eleanor & Park, but I’m in the minority for both of those.

    I’m excited for Where the Stars Still Shine as well! I have heard some really good things about it.

  10. I’m going to add to the hype…and say that I loved Eleanor & Park. πŸ˜‰ I hope you get a chance to read it soon and that you enjoy it as much as I did! I’m definitely with you on Where the Stars Still Shine and I also need to read Gone Girl; it’s been on my shelf for months and I just haven’t been in the mood to read it. I need to remedy that! Great list.

  11. MUST READ GONE GIRL! Step into the psycho please. πŸ™‚ After I read it I wondered how much I loved it but the further away I get the more fascinated I am. Must read. So glad it’s on your list. I also must read Me Before You. Purchased on a whim and haven’t gotten to it yet…

  12. okay, yeah.. you seriously need to get on those! SO MANY fantastic ones, Jen!!

    Although I will say THE INFINITE MOMENT OF US was a letdown – it started out flawlessly then completely derailed. Super clingy/selfish MC, absurd drama, I had hoped for more.

    ME BEFORE YOU is def. on my to read list and one I might have to bump up a few places! Have I flailed over THE GIRL YOU LEFT BEHIND to you yet? It’s so so so so SO wonderful. It was my first by Moyes and now I want to read everything.

  13. Oh Jen, your fall reading pile looks AMAZING. You have some of my favorite reads here! The Probability of Miracles is fantastic. I feel like it’s a YA contemp that gets looked over often. I think you’ll really enjoy it. As for Rainbow Rowell — prepare to be blown to bits by her craft. She is the best. THE BEST. And of course I have a soft spot for Trish’s WtSSS πŸ˜‰ love this novel & the lady who wrote it! I hope you do as well. This Song Will Save Your Life is another recent fave that sneaked up on me. I knew I’d like it, but didn’t realize how much I’d LOVE it. I have that Mara Dyer book sitting on my shelf, waiting to be read too. Maybe you will entice me to eventually pick it up! Ha

    Enjoy your reading πŸ™‚ kinda wish I was you right now & experiencing some of these for the first time. Ahhh.

  14. I’m also planning/hoping to read Fangirl, Where the Stars Still Shine and This Song Will Save Your Life this fall! All three sound soooo wonderful.

    And I’m really excited to see what you think about Me Before You and Gone Girl! Both very different books, but I will be so interested in how you react to each.

Hi! I’mΒ Jen! I’m a thirty-something introvert who loves nothing more than the cozy comfort of home and snuggling my two rescue cats, Pepper and Pancakes. I also enjoy running, jigsaw puzzles, baking and everything Disney. Few things bring me more joy than helping a reader find the right book for them!
