Top Ten Tuesday: TBR Fall 2015

Hey guys! 

I’ve never taken part in anything like this before, so I thought I would give it a go because it looks like a lot of fun. 

The Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish. I hope they don’t mind me taking part! 

So this weeks is about my TBR list for Autumn. I love this time of year. It’s getting colder, the leaves are changing and it’s just another excuse to stay in with a good book and a hot chocolate. Well, for me it is anyway! 

Here is my Top Ten TBR list. It will probably change! 

1. The Man Who Broke Into Auschwitz – Denis Avey. 

This book was recommended to me by one of my students. I better read it next because I’m fairly certain they will ask me about it! 


2. I’m The King Of The Castle – Susan Hill.

Another recommendation, but this time from a co-worker. It’s quite a dark novel, so I’m expecting tears. 


3. Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn. 

I’ve been meaning to read this for ages. I’m not too sure why I haven’t managed to get. I hope it’s not a sign!


4. The Old Curiosity Shop – Charles Dickens. 

I love Dickens, and we are approaching the perfect weather to be reading him! 


5. How To Be Both – Ali Smith. 

I heard about this book when it won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction this summer, bought it, and it’s been waiting patiently to be read ever since. 


6. The Career of Evil – Robert Galbraith. 

Pre-ordered and waiting for release. I don’t think I could be more excited! 

7. A Song For Issy Bradley – Carys Bray. 

This book was a birthday present and (superficial I know) the cover is really quite pretty. 


8. The Rabbit Back Literature Society – Pasi Ilmari Jaaskelainen. 

I just spotted this in a bookshop and it sounded quite intriguing. It’s not my usual kind of book, but something to me to buy it. So I did. 

9. Decline and Fall – Evelyn Waugh. 

Another book I’ve been meaning to read for a long time. It’s relatively short, but Waugh is notorious for packing a punch. I expect no less from this novel. 


10. The Illusionists – Rosie Thomas. 

This book has been on my shelf for a while, and I’d hate to think it will stay there, unread, for much longer. Fingers crossed!! 

Has anybody read any of these books? What are your thoughts? I’m looking forward to it, but I should do really! 

Have a great rest of the week everyone! 

Big love x
