Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Fall 2021 TBR
I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl: Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Fall 2021 TBR.
What is your most anticipated fall read?
With all the books that are on my radar on a given day, it’s nice to pick out a few for an official TBR. Ten still leaves room for library holds that come in, occasional ARCs, or some mood reading.
One question you may ask is “Are these spooky reads or thrillers?” Many readers have differing opinions of what comprises a fall read: some want spooky, some look for atmospheric, some seek out thrillers, while others like to tackle large tomes or nonfiction during the fall when they are spending more time sitting by the fire. It’s my opinion that any book you read in the fall is a fall read. For my fall reads, I look for the types of books I look for all year: memorable, thought-provoking, and unputdownable. So the answer to the question is NO….no thrillers or spooky reads because I’m too susceptible to nighmares.
The following two highly anticipated books were on my initial fall TBR list and then FOMO gripped me and I read them in summer! Project Hail Mary (AUDIO)) by Andy Weir and Three Words For Goodbye by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb. I highly recommend both of these 5 Star reads for your fall TBR.
Keep in mind that I’m not yet recommending the books on my official fall TBR list…..check back often, though, because I will provide updates and links to reviews as I read them. For now, these are the reads that are on my fall 2021 reading radar.
