Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is the Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR.  This is done 4 times a year and I look forward to it with each season chance.  I very rarely get even half of the books on this list read but it's always fun to dream!

1.  Whiskey Beach by Nora Roberts - I was actually just about to start this one when I came across her newest book (The Liar - review next week) at the library and couldn't resist.  I love the intro on this one and am definitely planning on getting to this one soon.

2.  The Wanderer by Robyn Carr - I've been dying to try a book from Robyn Carr and I'm finally going to stop wishing and start on this one though it may end up waiting until after Halloween.

3.  Dead Bolt by Juliet Blackwell - I absolutely loved the first book in this series of a contractor who just happens to see ghosts and completely loved a novella that Blackwell wrote that I read last year that combined this series and another series involving a witch who owns a vintage clothing store.  I think a ghostly murder mystery sounds like perfect October reading!

4.  Trick or Deceit by Shelley Freydont - I read a book from her a few months ago and really enjoyed it.  This is another Halloween-y mystery.  I love the idea of a mystery series that focuses on holiday celebrations.

5.  Polish Your Poise With Madame Chic by Jennifer L. Scott - I enjoyed her previous book - At Home With Madame Chic last year.  The advice wasn't earthshaking  but it was an interesting read and got me thinking which is always a bookish win.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what direction this book goes.

6.  Pretending to Dance by Dianne Chamberlain - This is an author I just heard about within the last year or so but she quickly made it onto my read now list.  I'm excited about this one and I absolutely love the cover.

7.  Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante by Susan Elia MacNeal - I love the 40s, I love all things British and the covers on this series has been catching my eye since it first started.  I'm hoping all be able to dive right into Maggie Hope's world easily even though I haven't read the earlier books.

8.  Candy Corn Murder by Leslie Meier - This series has been around for ages and while the cutesy covers and pun-tastic titles have always caught my eye I've yet to read one.  This is another Halloween mystery I'm looking forward to tacking in October.

9.  No One Needs to Know by Kevin O'Brien - This is an author I've been hearing raves about and another one I'm adding to my October reading list where I'm hoping to tackle some creepier books.  This one definitely sounds chilling enough!

10. Nine Lives by Wendy Corsi Staub - I don't know if you can tell but I've got kind of a mystery theme going this fall!  Last year I read a lot of Christmas books but not much on the Halloween side so this year I'm hoping to balance it a little more.

What's on your Fall TBR?  Are you doing any seasonal reading?

  2. The MacNeal book does have a good cover, I've seen several of hers at the bookstore and they have caught my eye. And Candy Corn does sound fun, a good October book!

    1. I'm really looking forward to the MacNeal book. I'm hoping I can just jump in and it won't be to jumbly.

  3. I like the Halloween vibe, Katherine! I'm going to check out some of those since I don't have any in mind for October and they sound like so much fun--maybe not the creepier ones though!

  6. I love the cover to Pretending to Dance too. It's gorgeous. I haven't read Whiskey Beach, but I'm looking forward to your review. I used to read Nora Roberts all the time, but haven't read much of her more recent books.

  7. Madame Chic has another book? I enjoyed one last winter... it helped bust my reading slump.

    1. It comes out towards the end of October. I'm really curious to see where she goes with this book. It's definitely a good slump busting type book.

  9. I love the Maggie Hope series. Have read 2 of them and have others on my Kindle. I'm really wanting to read this latest book with the action shifting to the US for a bit. I've read Leslie Meier's series for years and years. Her first one, think it's Mistletoe Murder or something about Christmas, is a favorite. Just a family and a mother who is inquisitive, etc. It's been a while since I read a new one though. Enjoy, Katherine!

    1. Thanks! I love books set in the 40s though there's not too many that I've come across.

  16. I almost grabbed TRICK OR DECEIT at the library, but managed to stop myself at two Freydont books. I started reading FOUL PLAY AT THE FAIR and am enjoying it. I'll look forward to your review of the Halloween book. It looks fun!

  17. I have been trying to "read outside the box" recently, genres other than SciFi, Fantasy and Paranormal. I have had Pretending to Dance on that list since I saw it on Netgalley. I didn't request it because I wasn't certain I would get around to it. I don't do seasonal lists, but maybe I should start one of "me reads" so I remember to take a break from ARCs every now and then. :)

  18. Nora Roberts is a good bet! I am reading All the Light You Cannot See - finally got around to it! Not much time for anything else right now, since I'm editing my third book. But I'm copying down your list!
