Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is Spring/Autumn TBR. Of course, we’re going into Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere so these are my picks for these next few months.
Ariadne by Jennifer Saint
If you’ve been around here for one of my seasonal TBRs before, you might know that I love nothing more than putting books on these lists that I know I’m going to read. Ariadne is one of those for this time around—it’s on my TBR for this month as part of the Greek GodAthon, so here’s hoping I do actually get to it.
For The Wolf by Hannah Whitten
Sticking with that theme, this one is on both that Greek GodAthon TBR and my TBR for this month’s mini Magical Readathon round. I’m honestly very nervous about this one, but I’m going to give it a read anyway.
A Pack of Vows and Tears by Olivia Wildenstein
This is possibly the most exciting book I’ll read in March because it marks off prompts for all three readathons I’m participating in—so the two I mentioned previously and also the Roll of Reads readathon (hosted by one of my besties, Mel!) So it’ll definitely be one I’m prioritising this month.
Battle Royal by Lucy Parker
This one isn’t on one of those TBRs, but obviously Autumn lasts longer than just March so I wanted to include a few other things as well. This is, however, part of a post I’m hoping to do in April (or possibly May depending on other books) so it would be great if I could mark this one off.
Cousins by Patricia Grace
This is one of the few books on here that I want to read for no particular reason. It’s not part of any TBR or post, but my friend Lana sent it to me recently and I’m just so excited about it. On Lana’s recommendation, I read Whale Rider last year and loved it so Lana recommended a few other books from Maori authors and I’m just beyond excited to give this one a read.
I Must Betray You by Ruta Sepetys
Keeping with the theme of talking about all my favourite people and the wonderful things they’ve organised or sent me. I got this recently, not only because I’m a huge Ruta Sepetys fan, but also so I could use it during Eurovisionathon which starts in April and is hosted by the extremely wonderful, Helen. Honestly, every time I mention Eurovisionathon I go on a little spiel about how excited I am for it and how much I love all the readathons that Helen organises, so if you haven’t checked her out already, please do!
Because of Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn
One of my big reading goals for this year was to read through all of the books I still had on my shelves from before 2022. And well, we’re two and a half months in and I haven’t read any of them. But with season two of Bridgerton being released in a few days, what better time to reenter that world, even if it’s the prequel world.
The Prison Healer by Lynette Noni
Lynette Noni has a bit of a cult following in the Aussie YA community. I’ve honestly never heard a bad word about her books, but I’ve never read any. I finally caved and bought myself a copy of this last year and now the time has come to finally read it. I’m excited, but also very nervous!
Wicked Games by Kel Carpenter
In all of these TBRs, I always include an eBook towards the end and for Autumn, I’m going with Wicked Games as it’s part of another challenge I set myself as well. This is also a pretty short read, about 250 pages, so hopefully, it’ll be one I can mark off.
Recitatif by Toni Morrison
And my audiobook pick for Autumn is Recitatif. I don’t think I’ve ever finished an audiobook that I’ve put on one of my seasonal TBRs in time for the little wrap-ups I do, but I have high hopes for this one. It’s just under two hours long, so in theory, it should be a nice and quick one for me.
Have you read any of these? Are any on your TBR?
