Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature run by the lovely folks at The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are discussing the top ten books on our autumn reading lists. Without further ado, here are the books I am excited about reading over the next couple of months:
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I LOVED Fangirl and I am so excited about this fantasy spin off. Rainbow Rowell’s books are so fantastic, and I am keen to see what she does with Simon Snow’s characters.
Silence is Goldfish by Annabel Pitcher
My Sister Lives on the Mantlepiece and Ketchup Clouds were both striking and original reads, Annabel Pitcher is now a must-read author for me.
Once upon a Place edited by Eoin Colfer, illustrated by P.J. Lynch
I am very excited about this anthology of poems and stories by Irish writers, especially as it is illustrated by P.J. Lynch!
Magic edited by Siobhan Parkinson, illustrated by Olwyn Whelan
Magic is a collection of newly composed fairy tales by Irish authors and illustrated by Olwyn Whelan. It looks utterly enchanting!
Jim Kay’s illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
I cannot wait to see how the incredible Jim Kay reinterprets Rowling’s magical world. Look at that beautiful cover!
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling
I think Mindy Kaling is hilarious. I loved her first book, and I know Why Not Me? will be another fun read.
Unbecoming by Jenny Downham
Before I Die was a very emotional and powerful read, and I have heard great things about Jenny Downham’s new book.
Pugs of the Frozen North by Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve
Pugs! And the dynamic duo that is Reeve and McIntyre. What’s not to love?
All of the Above by James Dawson
I have been meaning to read James Dawson for ages, and this exploration of identity and friendship sounds like an excellent read.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I heard about Six of Crows at bookclub, and it went straight on to my TBR list. It sounds very exciting!
Happy reading! 😀
