Top Ten Tuesday #6

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. Each week they give a topic, and then other blogs make their top ten lists for that topic.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books on your Fall TBR List 

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky 
I've been wanting to read this book for a while, ever since my friend recommended it to me, and then finding out that Emma Watson would be starring in the movie certainly interested me even more! 

2. The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
Do I even need an explanation for this one? I didn't think so. ;) 

3. The Maze Runner by James Dashner 
This book has always looked interesting to me. Something from the cover, or the title or the concept, or all three, has me curious. Luckily my brother actually bought this book a few weeks ago, so I'll be borrowing it soon! 

4. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth E. Wein
I remember Rachel showed me a review of this book, from someone who had received it as an ARC, and we both thought it would be a good read. Now that it's been released, it's certainly high up on my to be read list. (Rachel says: I saw this in a bookstore and I was 'thiiissss' close to buying it.)

5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green 
I've heard so many good things about this book. I've never read any of John Green's work, (I know, shame on me, right?) but I am looking forward to it. Plus John Green is awesome on YouTube, so why not support him? ;) 

6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Because Maggie Stiefvater is awesome, and this book sounds pretty amazing, too.

7. A book by Nicholas Sparks
Any book, it doesn't really matter which. Because we watched The Notebook the other day and I loved it, and because I haven't read anything by Nicholas Sparks and I think I need to fix that.

8. A book by Jane Austen
Again, any book, because I haven't and I think I need to fix that.

9. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
I got this book from the library and I was really looking forward to reading it and then someone put it on hold and I didn't have enough time to read it so I had to take it back. I was not pleased. 

We only came up with 9 so far, but maybe by the end of today, another book will pop into our brains to add. :) 

keep readin' it write!
Megan and Rachel 


  1. I have Grave Mercy at home...keep meaning to get to it. Casual Vacancy is on my list too. I just finished listening to Code Name Verity and it was really good. Tough. Surprising. But so good.
    Here are my picks

    1. Yes I've heard that about Code Name Verity. Kind of a hard-truth reality story by the sounds of it. Good to hear it was worth the read though! :)


  2. The Casual Vacancy seems to be on a lot of people's lists. My daughter is hoping to read The Maze Runner soon and if she likes it I might give it a try as well. My list:

    1. For us, The Casual Vacancy is a no-brainer since both Rachel and I are huge Harry Potter/JK Rowling fans. If the quality of writing is anywhere close to that in Harry Potter, it should be pretty good, I think!

      Thanks for the comment :)

  3. The Casual Vacancy is one I would love to read as well - and I loved The Scorpio Races. Hope you get to all these during Fall :-)

    1. Ooh glad to hear that about The Scorpio Races.
      Hopefully I can keep up my at-least-one-book-a-week reading rate!

      Thanks for reading :)
