We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Books on My Fall 2021 TBR. In October I have 3 weeks off of work, so plenty of reading time. There are a few books I really want to concentrate on, so let’s talk about my October vacation TBR.
As Good As Dead – Holly Jackson
I honestly have to say that this series really made me want to read more thrillers and mysteries than I did before reading A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. As Good As Dead is the third book in this series that I’ve impatiently been waiting for. I can’t wait to see where this story goes.
Under the Whispering Door – T.J. Klune
After reading The House in the Cerulean Sea T.J. Klune became an author to keep an eye on for me. Which means that Under the Whispering Door has become one of my most anticipated releases. I don’t have this one yet, but it releases in about a week, so I’ll have it during my vacation.
Vengeful – V.E. Schwab
Vengeful is the second book in the Villains series and again this is a book I’m surprised I haven’t read yet. I flew through Vicious and really need to know how the story continues. Vengeful is a pretty big book, so it’s probably one of the reasons why it’s taken longer for me to pick up. It’s finally time!
The Serpent King – Jeff Zentner
Jeff Zentner is an author I’ve heard so many good things about and I own three of his books, but just haven’t read them yet. They keep starting at me when I’m looking at my shelves, so reading at least one during my three weeks off is my goal. I have a feeling his books are going to be emotional.
Girl in Pieces – Kathleen Glasgow
Kathleen Glasgow is another author I own a few books by, but just haven’t sat down and read one yet. Girl in Pieces is definitely going to be a difficult read, but I’m curious to see how the author takes on these subjects.
Small Spaces & Dead Voices – Katherine Arden
Small Spaces is one of my favorite middle grade books and I think it’s only appropriate to re-read it before starting with Dead Voices. These are the perfect books for a cold and rainy day. I don’t own the third book yet, but maybe I need to order it before vacation.
Dead Dead Girls – Nekesa Afia
The cover of Dead Dead Girls was the first thing that caught my eye after this title. This is the start of a historical mystery series set in the 1920s. I love that time in history and Dead Dead Girls is another book that keeps catching my eye as I walk by.
Skyhunter – Marie Lu
Skyhunter is actually a book I started last year when it released, but as usual I was reading way too much at once and got distracted. The second book, Steelstriker, releases at the end of the month, so it’s time to catch up. I was enjoying what I had read so far.
The Cost of Knowing – Brittney Morris
I think out of this whole list The Cost of Knowing is the book I’m most surprised I haven’t read yet. After loving Slay last year I was anxiously awaiting this book. Our main character sees the future when he touches things and his life turns upside down when he sees his brother’s death. This book is going to hurt, but probably be amazing!
Always Never Yours – Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
This author duo has a few books out now and I’ve been curious about them. Always Never Yours is the first one published and I love the title. Our main character doesn’t have luck in love, because each of her relationships ends up with her perfect guy falling in love with someone else. I’m really hoping she gets her happily ever after.

So those are ten books I’m really hoping to read during my three weeks off in October. I have a total of 23 days off, so I don’t think reading these should be a big problem. What books are on your fall TBR? Let me know in the comments. Feel free to leave your TTT link as well.
