Normally this post is used to help me keep track of my upcoming ARCs, but I feel like I’m pretty on top of them for once, so I want to share a combination of upcoming releases and backlist books I’m hoping to read in the next few months instead.
Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake | I read One Dark Throne before it even came out, so I’ve been putting this one off for a hot minute. But I love this dark fantasy series with a strong sisterly relationship at it’s core. Plus, the last book just came out, so I need to catch up!
Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman | I was on quite the contemporary kick over summer (Duh!) and to slowly get into the fall mood I thought a deeper and more emotional, mental health story. Plus Neal Shusterman’s writing is incredible and I need to read more of his catalog.
Sadie by Courtney Summers | Guess who put off this book for a year for no reason! I got the audiobook for Sadie last year after hearing all the rave reviews, but fall was almost over and I knew I needed the chilly, kinda spooky atmosphere to make the most of this book. And I’m happy to finally be getting around to it.
The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough | This is one of the oldest books on my TBR because I saw beautiful tumblr edits years ago and thought the book sounded great. I still think it sounds great and I think that magical realism really fits fall and spring so I definitely wanted to give myself some options for the genre. Plus, I’m a sucker for when non-human things and concepts are personified in stories.
All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater | I want to fall in love with another Stiefvater book after completely changing my tune on The Raven Boys after finally completing the series. And like I said, there’s just something about whimsical fantasy and fall that is a match made in heaven.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo | A new Bardugo book exists in the world and therefore I must read it. Hey, I don’t make the rules, I just follow them. But a dark, gritty mystery with secrets, fantasy, and the occult – HELLO, this screams read me beside a bonfire, wrapped in a warm blanket on a chilly autumn night.
The Toll by Neal Shusterman | Don’t ask me how, but I’m managed to avoid reading the synopsis for this book for over a year and I’m not going to do it now. Honestly, I don’t even need to know what this is about. It could be a Nimbus agents desk manual and I’d still read it. But I excited (and terrified) to read this conclusion.
Supernova by Marissa Meyer | So many great series are coming to an end, but I love this enhanced world filled with complex characters! Maybe my wish of more Phobia will finally be fulfilled.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern | This just sounds like a beautiful story. It’s that simple. I want to read a a love letters to stories and myths and that what this is. I can’t wait to be lost in the world and find all the beauty, pain, and hope along Zachary.
Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren | Give me a new Christina Lauren book and I will be a happy camper. I love their books because they put me into a great reading mood – I don’t even have to love the book – they just help me take my mind off anything and enjoy getting lost in a story!
So I didn’t end up including and ARCs on this list, but so happy about the books coming out in the last half of the year. What fall books are you most excited for? And what books are at the top of your TBR? Share below!
