Top Ten 2014 Autumn TBR Titles

Summer is officially over. We're two days into autumn now. I don't know about you, but I want to embrace the next few months because I am NOT ready for winter this year. I'm a little scared, to tell you the truth. The summer was so mild...!

This is one of my favorite seasons when it comes to books. All of the year's biggest titles are on the horizon, and there are so many stories to be excited about!

In no particular order...

1) THE BLOOD OF OLYMPUS by Rick Riordan

I have been a fan of Riordan's mythology series since before most people knew it was existed and it exploded in popularity. Last year, I decided to have an epic ten-book read-a-thon this year. I'm still making my way through the series, and I can't believe the grand finale is only a couple of weeks away! I might need some tissues to get through this. I'm not even going to want to finish because once it's over, it's OVER, you know? And...I'm still not ready to say goodbye.

2) IN THE AFTERLIGHT by Alexandra Bracken

Let me tell you guys a story: In 2010, one of the first books I ever reviewed was BRIGHTLY WOVEN by then-debut-author Alexandra Bracken. I wanted more from the author and found her blog online. She was writing a book called Black is the Color and had hidden tidbits online if you could find them. From that moment, I wanted to read her new book, which was to be a trilogy. The book was eventually re-named, and, sadly, even though I pre-ordered my copy of THE DARKEST MINDS, I never had a chance to read it. Last year, I was sure I'd read it when the sequel came out. Then there was, once again, never time. Eventually, I decided to wait and gulp the entire series down at once. The time is finally now, and I'm so excited to FINALLY dig into this one!!!


This is one of the biggest fresh new series I've been excited about this year! It's HIGH FANTASY! It's by MARIE LU. It sounds AMAZING. There are so many things to love about this! Tragically, I haven't had time to dive into my ARC, so I'll be reading my finished copy instead right alongside all of you!

4) NEVERHOME by Laird Hunt

This was one of the big buzz titles this year at BEA, and I was lucky enough to meet Laird Hunt and snag the last copy! It was one of the few books I went to the convention knowing I HAD to snag. I haven't had time to get to it yet, but I'm still really excited. It's a historical novel about a woman who disguises herself as a man and leaves her husband and children to go fight in the Civil War.

5) SACRIFICE by Brigid Kemmerer

Another great series is coming to a close! I love elemental magic, and I love this series about four brothers battling the elements and an epic battle. I'm so ready for this finale! If you're new to the series, book one is FREE, and books 2-4 are on sale for $2.99 each! Here's my post with the details!


I PINED for this 2013 debut for so long. I was haunting the Book Depository for over a year before I could import this beauty and its sequel to the US. I received my copies earlier this summer but haven't had a lot of free time to read my own books lately. I'm hoping to read both of these this fall! (And if you're NOT into importing books, rest assured that the series is making its debut in the US with Flux in 2015!)


I bought the first two books in this series my senior year of high school. I didn't get a chance to read them before I went to college, and then they got lost and I forgot they existed. This year, there's' been a lot of hype because a prequel, CLARIEL, is coming out. I've heard such amazing things about this series, and I've gone ahead and purchased new copies of the books. I'm excited to finally see what makes these books so amazing!

8) WINTERSPELL by Claire LeGrand

I'm a huge fan of retellings. When I heard that there was going to be a retelling centered around The Nutcracker, a ballet I hold near and dear to my heart, I knew I had to read it. This desire only grew upon hearing that Claire is a local author. I'm really upset I haven't had time to dig in yet, and hope to do so very soon. It's going to be a perfect holiday read!

9) THE WITCH'S BOY by Kelly Barnhill

I've wanted to read Kelly Barnhill since hearing about one of her previous novels, IRON-HEARTED VIOLET. I was lucky enough to meet Kelly at BEA this past spring, and I've been looking forward to reading this. Plus, the cover is AWESOME! I had hoped to read this one before it came out last week, but, well...

10) CROWN OF ICE by Vicki Weavil

I can't go a season without reading at least one fairy tale-themed novel! I've been waiting to get my greedy mitts on CROWN OF ICE for over a year now. The book is a retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales, The Snow Queen. After the way Disney's Frozen failed to follow the original tale, I'm looking forward to some evil and mayhem!

Here are some great upcoming autumn releases that I've already read and fallen in love with!
*THE PERILOUS SEA by Sherry Thomas (Reviewed last week!)
*ATLANTIA by Ally Condie
 *MORTAL HEART by Robin La Fevers
*FAMOUS IN LOVE by Rebecca Serle
*NOT IN THE SCRIPT by Amy Finnegan
*SNOW LIKE ASHES by Sara Raasch
