TTT: Books on My Fall TBR


This week's TTT topic: Books on my Fall TBR List

My fall reading is going to mostly consist of reading for the Cybils. So in reality my TBR for fall is going to consist of the book in the list of nominations that start October 1st in the category of Elementary and MG Speculative Fiction. But that doesn't mean I won't have time for other books too and I hope to fit all these in.

 

Carolina Blues by Virginia Kantra (October 7) 
Pennyroyal Academy by M.A. Larson (October 7)

 

Thursdays with the Crown by Jessica Day George (October 7) 
Exquisite Captive by Heahter Demetrios (October 7)

 

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch (October 14) 
Once Upon a Rose by Laura Florand (October)

 

Empire of Shadows by Miriam Forster (November 4)
Dreamer's Pool by Juliet Marillier (November 4)

 

The Map to Everywhere by Carrie Ryan and John Park Davies (November 4)

Funny how few we have in common on this one! And do we know October for sure for Once Upon a Rose? *hopes*

I'm hoping I have sometime for some MG Speculative Fiction in October, but I'm not planning on it. You've got a few on my TBR listed though.

I'm looking forward to Thursdays With the Crown a lot, those books are a favorite of mine! And Pennyroyal Academy, Snow Like Ashes, and Princess of Thorns look good, too! :)

Laura hasn't updated in a while so I'm not absolutely sure about Once Upon a Rose. Just really really hoping. I'll keep putting it on anticipated lists until it does come out, because I'm so looking forward to it. :)

My experience last year taught me I NEED to take breaks and read something not in my category or I start hating everything. Other people can totally focus on their category with no burn out. I'm not one of those.

I actually read Thursdays with the Crown on Sunday. So. Good.
Dreamer's pools & Princess of thorns are two of my most anticipated books. Marrilier is one of my favorite authors and I love fairy tale retellings.
I'm currently reading Empire of shadows and it's good.
I can't wait for Snow like ashes. Fantasy is the best :D Happy reading :)

So many tempting books! I was wondering how you would have time to read anything but MGSF... I'd been reading your post about The Story of Owen and thinking that I'd wanted to read it, too, but it's now probably going to wait for after Cybils season. But maybe I'll keep it in reserve in case I need a break, too. I'm also excited about Thursdays with the Crown, the new Maggie Stiefvater, Ambassador by William Alexander, the new Garth Nix.

I recently added PRINCESS OF THORNS to my goodreads TBR list!

I'll keep that in mind, I don't want to start hating on books. I'm just hopping to see what people nominate :)

BTW the last four books in a row on the left have been sitting on my TBR, so maybe they will be nice to slip in there with my other reading.

Favorite Kissing Scenes

When thinking of a favorite things post I could do for February I decided it would have to be kissing. I've already done couples and I was feeling in the mood to do something fluffy and Valentine's related. So kisses it is. I read more MG than YA, and the YA I read tends to not focus on romance so this was actually harder than I expected it to be though a few jumped into my head right away. (And one of my choices does actually come from a MG book. One is adult. Gasp!) The actual scene from the book is quoted followed by my thoughts. The king lifted a hand to her cheek and kissed her. It was not a kiss between strangers, not even a kiss between a bride and a groom. It was a kiss between a man and his wife, and when it was over, the king closed his eyes and rested his forehead against the hollow of the queen's shoulder, like a man seeking respite, like a man reaching home at the end of the day . - The King of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner Turner doesn't write the

Shadowshaper

Shadowshaper  by Daniel José Older is everywhere. Best of lists. Award buzz. Blogs everywhere. It's one of those books everyone is reading and talking about. I had it on my TBR but decided I definitely needed to read it before the year was out just so I could weigh in on one of the most talked about books of 2015 if asked. It is deserving of every good thing said about it. Every. One. Sierra was looking forward to a relaxing summer break. Her plans involved hanging out with her friends and painting. They did not involve being chased by zombie like creatures and threatened by a magical power connected to her family's heritage she has never heard of. When murals begin fading all over her Brooklyn neighborhood, Sierra is perplexed. When her grandfather, who had a stroke, begins to apologize and starts repeating strange phases and insisting Sierra get the help of a boy she barely knows to help her finish her mural, Sierra is concerned but mostly about her grandfather. Then at a

Serafina and the Black Cloak

Serafina and the Black Cloak  by Robert Beatty is a thrilling tale of mystery and adventure set at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in 1899. Having lived in Asheville and visited the house several times, there was no way I was going to pass up a chance to read this. (Also it's MG fantasy, always a bonus for me.) Serafina lives in secret in the basement of the Vanderbilt's spacious vacation home. She has lived there most of her life. Her father worked on the house as it was being built and is the mechanic who runs the massive generator and keeps the electricity going. Serafina is the chief rat catcher, slipping through the halls of her massive home secretly and quietly. She is light on her feet, sees well in the dark, and is quick enough to catch the vermin and keep them out. Serafina knows she if different and strange. Her father insists she stay hidden. But all that changes when one night Serafina witnesses a horrible crime. A little girl, a guest in the house, is fleein
