Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read list

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature created by The Broke and the Bookish

As someone who lives in a country with only two seasons, I don't really have a firm grasp on when fall starts and ends. Sooo, to make it easier for all of us (mostly for myself) i'm just going to share the top ten books in my general TBR list.

1-3. The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
I watched the movie on it's first weekend and it blew my mind! I actually tried to read The Maze Runner when I was younger but I never really made it past the second chapter. Second chance, yes?


4-5. The Fall of Five and The Revenge of Seven by Pittacus Lore
I need to catch up on this series! I remember cursing the cliffhanger at the end of the third book so now I can't wait to find out what happens next. I hear that shit's getting reaaally intense. 

6-8. Where She Went by Gayle Forman, Through the Ever Night by Veronica Ross, and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I have a confession- I have this tiny thing called the second-book phobia. Whenever I love a particular book, I shy away from reading the succeeding book in fear of it not being up to par with the first. It's dumb, I know, but I have it and it is severe. So my plan for my sembreak is to toughen up and read the famed book twos of some of my favorite books,

9-10. The Strain by Guillermo del Torro and Chuck Hogan; and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
Heavier reading- because a girl can't live on YA alone.

As you can see, i'm focusing more on some catch-up reading than on looking for newer titles. I skipped out on these books and everyone says that i'm missing out so i'm hoping to finish reading everything before my second sem of uni starts. So what's on your lists? Are you looking forward to reading newer releases, or are you backtracking like me?

    It's a Book Life

  2. I just read If I Stay and need read Where She Went now... only I didn't LOVE If I Stay, so do I really care what happens after she wakes up?? And Scarlet is awesome!! It's definitely not going to disappoint you. One of the best 2nd books I've ever read!

    My TTT

  3. Oooh great list! There are a few here that I also have to read - namely The Maze Runner and Scarlet. And you definitely need to read Where She Went - it's really good!

  4. The Maze Runner was a great book. You'll enjoy it, but I have yet to read book 3. Personally, Through The Ever Night was my favorite in the trilogy.

  5. I just want to say, the fact that you only have two seasons in your year sounds pretty amazing! Great list here, The Maze Runner is high at the top of my TBR list, but I just haven't gotten to it yet. Hopefully soon! Good luck, and I hope you finish your TBR list (:
