Broke and the Bookish. This week it's our autumn TBR lists, which I'm doing even though my track record for actually reading all of the books on my lists is poor (I've managed two from my summer list), but I'm going to try to read all of these. The list is a mix of already published books and those that will be published this autumn.
1. The Casual Vacancy - J.K. Rowling (27/9/12) - hell, yes, I am reading this. Frankly if I fail to do so I need to be hit with a hardback copy of Order of the Phoenix. I have it on pre-order at my local Waterstone's and plan to pick it up on my lunch break.
2. The Diviners - Libba Bray (18/9/12) - another pre-order. I love Libba Bray's books, Beauty Queens is one of my favourite books, and this just sounds awesome. I can't wait for this to show up on my door step.
3. Days of Blood and Starlight - Laini Taylor (8/11/12) - Laini writes achingly, infuriatingly well. And though I confess I still haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone I am getting Days as soon as I can and then I am reading both. Yes I am. My excuse is that I'm pretty sure Daughter ends on a cliffhanger and I'm trying to save myself pain; it's def that not laziness.
4. Wanderlove - Kirsten Hubbard - I've seen this mentioned on a lot of blogs, and it's often compared to Amy and Roger's Epic Detour which I really liked so I'm looking forwards to reading it.
5. Throne of Glass - Sarah J. Maas - another one I've seen blogged about a lot. Also, assassins. I love books with assassins (when they're the sword and dagger and political machinations kind, anyway).
6. The List - Siobhan Vivian - I think I saw this on the Story Siren's Books to Pine For ages ago and added it to my Goodreads. Found it there a month ago when I was browsing for stuff to try and get for my Kindle. I couldn't get this for that, but did get a hard copy. Am in the mood for good contemporary which I think this will be.
7. Dull Boy - Sarah Cross - superheroes! And I read a free sample on Kindle and then bought the book because just from those few pages I knew I'd love it. A great way to wind up a year of Avengers and Dark Knights.
8. Venom - Fiona Paul (30/10/12) - more blogosphere chatter led me to this. Renaissance Venice with plots and thieves and assassins and all sorts of other things I love? Need this book.
9. The Lies That Bind - Lisa and Laura Roecker (1/11/12) - I read The Liar Society last year and liked it, and I'm intrigued to know where the series/characters are going. I'll need to re-read that one first, though.
10. Bad Hair Day - Carrie Harris (13/11/12) - Bad Taste in Boys is one of my "picked it up, couldn't put it down, lost a day" books, so I can't wait for this one. And it's werewolves and I heart werewolves a little.
