Top Ten Tuesday # 4 (Books On My Fall To-Be-Read List)

TOP TEN TUESDAY is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and this week I’m telling you my top 10 books that I want to read this fall. This is essentially my October/November TBR.


  • The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. The only reason I was waiting until autumn to read this is because the colours of the cover are very autumn-like. 
  • The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey. This pick doesn’t need much of an explanation: is perfect for Halloween. 
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I’ve been neglecting this book for so long and it is happening, I’m reading it. YAY!
  • The Diviners by Libba Bray. A serial killer in the 20’s? GIVE IT TO ME!


By now you have probably guess that most of these books are perfect for Halloween.

  • Between The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke.

  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. Everyone says this is a very disturbing novel so I’m eager to read it.
  • Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. To be honest the things that scare me the most about this book are the weird pictures...
  • Anna Dressed in Blood & Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake.

  • The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan. The last book on this list has nothing to do with Halloween but I’m dying to read it! The fifth and final installment of The Blood of Olympus series… I do have to finish first The Mark of Athena and The House of Hades, but that’s what I’m gonna do next week to be prepared for this one.

And that’s it for another TTT. Have you read any of these books? Did you like them? Let me know!

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
