Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week's topic: Top Ten Books on My Fall Reading List

1. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel - This buzzed about literary dystopia is on the long list for the National Book Award and is just what I like to read.
2. The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters - I'm a fan of Waters's writing and want to give her new book a try.
3. Love is the Drug by Alaya Dawn Johnson - a YA thriller starring POC, a must read.
4. The Young Elites by Marie Lu - the author described the main character as "Darth Vader or Magneto as a teenage girl". Sold.

5. Afterworlds by Scott Westerfield - this author can be hit or miss for me, but the meta nature of the plot drew me in.
6. Supernatural Enhancements by Edgar Cantero - I'm in the mood for a good old fashioned haunted house story and the cover is gorgeous
7. Belzar by Meg Wolitzer - I'm interested in how Wolitzer writes YA as well as the book's relationship to The Bell Jar
8. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins - Saving this for Dewey's Readathon.

9. The Art of the English Murder: From Jack the Ripper and Sherlock Holmes to Agatha Christie and Alfred Hitchcock  by Lucy Worsley - 'tis the season for nonfiction about MURDER
10. The Accidental Highwayman by Ben Tripp - This looks like lots of fun. 

Of course, this is the top ten of at least forty books I want to read this fall. The TBR is never ending :)

Lol at "top ten of forty". I totally know what you mean. I really want to read The Accidental Highwayman, too. Especially since it's compared to The Princess Bride!!!! & Station Eleven sounds really cool. Adding to my goodreads! Thanks!

Man, these all sound so good! Especially STATION ELEVEN. A literary dystopian? How have I not heard of it yet?


Happy reading!

Station Eleven is a good read as is The Paying Guests though they are so, so different from one another. I'm also looking forward to getting to most of the others on your list!

Aah, I can't believe I forgot Belzhar! Such a good list!

Pretty much everything on this list was either already on my TBR... or looks like it should be! So thank you, because I needed more to read. (I'm actually not kidding, which would make you laugh if you saw the length of my TBR list....)

You've got some really good sounding books here, Jaime. I know what you mean about the never ending TBR list! I hope you get all these books read.
