Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are listing our top ten books on our fall to read list.
Since I often have time ordering books on lists like this they will be listed in no particular order because I am simply excited to read all of them.
- Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden. I am a huge Christie Golden fan and also love World of Warcraft from playing the MMO for six years. After pre-ordering this book nearly a year ago I was thrilled to finally have it in my hands last week and can’t wait to set aside some time to read it.
- Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. This book has been on my to read list for so long. So I am finally gonna sit down and read it this fall, along with the rest of the books in the series: Streets of Laredo, Dead Man’s Walk and Comanche Moon.
- It by Stephen King. I don’t know what’s scarier, the fact that it’s about a clown or the sheer thickness of the novel. Either way I’m looking forward to reading this monster of a book even if it is likely to increase my already high fear of clowns by a few notches.
- The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Heard lots of good things about this book and a few friends have recommended it to me. So it’s definitely on the list.
- Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Loved the movie and have been wanting to read this one since I first saw it. Really interested to see the differences between book and movie.
- Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay. Meant to read this one when it was the monthly pick over at Sword & Laser but obviously that didn’t happen. So I’m gonna put it on my fall to read list so I can enjoy it and finally read the discussions and watch the podcasts.
- Fable: Edge of The World by Christie Golden. Oh look another Christie Golden book. I was super excited to have been given a copy of this book to review. I played Fable when it first came out a few years back, though haven’t touched the second game yet, so will be interesting to visit that world again.
- Darksiders: The Abomination Vault by Ari Marmell. It should be obvious by now I highly enjoy books written about the world in which video games are set in. I’ll admit I’ve never played Darksiders, but I watched my husband play it enough I feel I have a firm grasp on the world and so should enjoy this book.
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I don’t normally go for books that are hugely popular, however I am very interested in reading this book. I’m hoping all the excitement that is surrounding it is not simply hype.
- The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans. This is another book I’ve been meaning to read since first seeing the movie. So it’s about time I sat down and read it.
As you can see most of the books on my list are not new releases, but let’s face it if I concentrated on new releases all the time I’d never get around to reading the books I’ve been wanting to for months if not years.
