Top Ten Tuesday: Fall TBR

Welcome again to another Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today’s topic is the top ten books I’m most looking forward to reading this fall. All book covers from Goodreads.

1. The Science of Interstellar by Kip S. Thorne

I’ve always been intrigued by astronomy and took a couple of intro courses in college. Even though I saw Interstellar a few months back, I’m still curious about the science that inspired parts of the movie. I requested this from the library just last night, so I can’t read wait to start it this week!

 

2. My Work is Not Yet Done by Thomas Ligotti

I recently read and thoroughly enjoyed The Conspiracy Against the Human Race and checked out Teatro Grottesco last year, which made me curious to read more Ligotti.

 

3.  Marrow by Tarryn Fisher

Marrow

This book was on my summer TBR list but I somehow never got around to purchasing/reading it. I’ve heard great things about it and the blurb really caught my eye, so I’m hoping to give it a try soon.

 

4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I’ve actually got a copy of this book sitting on my dresser now and it’s been on my TBR list for quite some time. Not entirely sure why I haven’t read it yet. 

 

5. Seveneves by Neal Stephenson

I figured that enough time has passed without trying a Neal Stephenson book. I picked up Reamde from the library but was too intimidated to start it at the time. Maybe the second time’s the charm?

 

6. The Martian by Andy Weir

Another book that’s been on my TBR list for too long.

 

7. How To Be A Writer In The E-Age… And Keep Your E-Sanity! by Catherine Ryan Hyde and Anne R. Allen

I stumbled upon this book in the Kindle store while searching for books on writing. Seems like a helpful guide for my current writing endeavors.

 

8. End Online by D. Wolfin

Another title I stumbled upon in the Kindle store. I’ve found some real gems that way, so I’m excited to see what this story holds in store!

 

9. Nexus by Ramez Naam

Found by searching for books on Transhumanism in the Kindle store.

 

10. One, No One, and One Hundred Thousand by Luigi Pirandello

I found out about this book from its mention in The Conspiracy Against the Human Race. Seems a lot different from the rest of my current reading material.

 

 

Which books are on your Fall (or Spring if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) TBR?

    I’m probably one of the few people who didn’t enjoy Cinder as much as most people who have read those books do. It’s not bad, but I don’t think it’s for me. Ever since reading it I’ve been debating if I should attempt the other books in the series. I hope you like it though!

      I think you’re the only one I’ve heard admit that they didn’t like Cinder all that much. It seems like everywhere I read about it people are raving about the series. There’s a definite possibility that with all the hype I’ve heard, the book might not live up to my expectations. Guess I’ll have to read it myself to see where I stand!

    Cinder has been sitting on my bookshelf for a long time, too. I don’t know why I’ve put it off for so long, especially when I’ve seen so many people rave about that series all over the Internet. I also want to read The Martian before it hits theaters because the movie looks like it’s going to be amazing! This is a really good list! 🙂

      I was super excited when I finally picked up Cinder from the library, but ever since I got it that copy has not left its current position on my bookshelf. What might end up happening is that I’ll finally get the urge to read it just as the book is due back at the library…haha.

      I wanted to check The Martian out from the library today but every single copy, including paperback and digital, is already checked out and there’s a queue of 100+ people in front me! I don’t think I can wait that long to read it so I’ll probably buy the Kindle version so I can read it right away.
