Today’s prompt for Top Ten Tuesday, the weekly meme managed by That Artsy Reader Girl, is ‘Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List.’ But before looking forward, I want to look back. What books on my summer TBR did I actually read?
A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende: June 2021 The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys: July 2021 The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton: August 2021
- The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker
The Cat Who Saved Books by Sosuke Natsukawa: July 2021 A Deadly Education by Naomi Novik: July 2021
So I read 5 out of the 6 books on my TBR. Not bad! I’m not sure if I still want to read The Silence of the Girls. It does sound like an interesting book, but I don’t feel very motivated to read it.
Let’s continue with my TBR list for the next months. Here are the books I want to read this autumn:
Descendant of the Crane by Joan He
I wanted to read this Chinese inspired fantasy for the Magical Readathon. I requested the book at my library two months ago, but I still haven’t been able to read it. So I hope I don’t have to wait any longer.
The Book of Dreams by Nina George
Last year I loved to read The Little Paris Bookshop by the same writer. I like to try her other book to see if they are just as good.
Black Water Sister by Zen Cho
On her twitter the author describes the plot as ”A stressed zillennial lesbian fights gods, ghosts, gangsters & grandmas in 21st century Penang.” That sounds definitively promising! The book also has a Malaysian setting, just like The Ghost Bride, a book I loved to read earlier this year.
Heart of Brass by Felicity Banks
This is an Australian steampunk novel. I bought the book a few months ago and want to read it in November for SciFiMonth. Steampunk is a fascinating subgenre that combines historical fiction and sci-fi. I’m looking forward to explore it further.
This Vicious Cure (This Mortal Coil, #3) by Emily Suvada
A year ago this book was already high on my TBR-list. Sadly I am still not able to borrow the book at my library. But I’ll keep trying to get it and hope to read this book before the end of the year. I really want to know how the trilogy ends!
The Galaxy and the Ground Within (Wayfarers, #4) by Becky Chambers
The first part of the Wayfarers series, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, is one of my favourite books of all time. All the books from the series have great characters and are really well-written. So I’m looking forward to read this last part of the series.
