Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall 2022 To-Read List

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

It’s only fairly recently I’ve started kind of planning ahead with TBRs, more so than I did in the past. I found the Summer TBR Top Ten Tuesday to be really helpful in narrowing down what I was hoping to read. I didn’t get a chance to read all of those, but I managed to do a fair bit!

As before, I’ll be looking at books from my physical books, NetGalley, and other books on my kindle.

Fall/Autumn TBR

From upcoming NetGalley releases, the ones I really want to read are –

Our Share of Night by Mariana Enriquez (October 13th, 2022) / The Dark Between the Trees by Fiona Barnett (October 11th, 2022) / Ghosts of the Forbidden by Leanna Renee Hieber (October 11th, 2022)

I don’t think I’ll get to all three of these before the release dates, but I’m definitely going to try! They sound really intriguing and perfect for getting into spooky season.

And of course, there are the NetGalley backlog books, which are constantly growing…

The Book of Horror by Matt Glasby / Asian Ghost Short Stories edited by Lee Murray / An Illustrated History of Ghosts by Adam Allsuch Boardman

I’m really going to try and get some non-fiction horror stuff read, and I’m aiming to do so in time for Halloween and our Birthday Bash over on Divination Hollow.

And there are three books I have physical copies of that I’m going to try and read during autumn.

Welsh Gothic by Jane Aaron / The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman / Six Crimson Cranes by Elizabeth Lim

As usual with my physical books, all of these have been sitting there for a bit too long now. I admit, I don’t read as much of my physical books now since I work from home, and no longer take a book into the office to read on my lunch break. Maybe I should start trying to read at lunch instead of watching something, but we’ll see! Welsh Gothic is non-fiction exploring the Gothic tradition in Welsh writing, and I’m really keen to dig into this. The Graveyard Book feels so perfect for leading up to Halloween, and Six Crimson Cranes is mainly because I absolutely love Elizabeth Lim and feel like this will be a perfect break from the darker reading the rest of the time.

And lastly – there’s a few books on my Kindle, either purchased or picked up from deals, I do want to try and read, though these are usually low down on the priority list. But one book I want to try and get to this autumn –

The Lady in Chains by Bonnie Quinn

This is the second book in Bonnie Quinn’s How to Survive Camping series, and I really loved the first one, including the adaptation by The NoSleep Podcast. If you like spooky, folklore-based horror, definitely check out The Man With No Shadow.

So tell me – what’s on your fall/autumn TBR for this year?
