It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve linked up for Top Ten Tuesday…but what better way to jump back in than my fall 2020 TBR list? I think I’m finally going to have more time to read this season and I have so many good books sitting on my shelf just waiting to be devoured. In no particular order, here’s what I can’t wait to read in the next few months.
The Map of Time, The Map of the Sky, and The Map of Chaos, by Felix J. Palma. Counting this as one entry! I picked up the first book in this trilogy on a whim; by the end I was completely mesmerized. I never finished the trilogy, but it seems like perfect reading for “spooky season” (the protagonist is H.G. Wells!), so I’m going to start from the beginning so I can properly enjoy it.
The Shadow of the Wind, The Angel’s Game, The Prisoner of Heaven, and The Labyrinth of the Spirits, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. Again, lumping all of these together. Another series that I started and set down before it was finished, and another good pick for spooky season. (Can you see a theme in my fall 2020 menu?) Zafon’s writing is really magical and I was so sad to hear he died this summer.
The Girl Who Lived Twice, by David Lagercrantz. My friend Katrin sent me this for my birthday. I loved the original Millennium trilogy and this seems like just the thing for a gloomy fall day.
I Hold a Wolf by the Ears, by Laura van den Berg. A new-to-me author. I just downloaded this short story collection on NetGalley and can’t wait to dive in.
The Wives, by Tarryn Fisher. I’ve heard nothing but good things about this thriller!
The Hunting Party, by Lucy Foley. This just arrived from my friend Em and looks so good. Definite Agatha Christie vibes, and perfect for snuggling up with hot cider by the fire!
Final Girls, Lock Every Door, and Home Before Dark, by Riley Sager. These books aren’t part of a series, but I listed all three because I can’t pick just one. I loved The Last Time I Lied (review here) and can’t wait to pick these up! I read a lot of horror and thrillers in the fall and all of these promise to be nail-biters.
