Ah, autumn. The season of jeans and sweatshirts and reading a giant pile of books.
There are a few new books coming out that I want to read, but mostly I have a tremendous backlog to dig through. Seriously. It's getting worrisome.
So, in no particular order, Wandering Meander's list o' books for Fall 2013!
Books not currently on my shelves but about which I am excited:
|Yes, I am THIS excited.|
2. Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
I was rather surprised by the mountains of feelings the first book dredged up and now want to read this one very badly. I keep hearing "Sturmhund" everywhere I go...looking forward to this.
3. Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield
Read a review from another blog and it intrigued me.
4. Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
Considering how much I LOVED the first book, I'm super-psyched to read this "sequel." Sci-Fi YA Scarlet Pimpernel? Yes, please!
5. Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson
Everything Sanderson writes is terrific. I can't wait for this one.
Books that have been ignored on my shelves for far too long
6. The Lost Prince (and The Iron Traitor) by Julie Kagawa.
Yes, I know there are two books here. Nevertheless, somehow The Lost Prince ended up getting bypassed when it was released. An oversight I need to remedy...
7. The Mermaid's Madness by Jim C. Hines
I really liked the first one - kickass fairy tale princesses! - and the sequel(s) ended up getting shelved "to be read later." Time to get back on the wagon.
8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I have a feeling that I'm missing out by not having read this. I must read it before seeing the movie...because it will affect whether or not I want to see the movie at all.
9. The Diviners by Libba Bray
Yet another book that got bypassed instead of read, and for no good reason! Shame on me. (And it's the nice hardcover with the GOOD cover art. Ha!)
10. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
I know it's sort of steampunk, and I just wrote a review about how lackluster steampunk can be, but I want to read this anyway. Let's see if something awesome can happen.
