Books on my Fall TBR

The ones of you that know me will undoubtedly raise their eyebrows and tilt their head at me right now. Yes. Yes, I know. M doesn’t plan her monthly TBR. M doesn’t plan one for the summer or winter or Christmas and whatever because she knows exactly that she will never stick to it.

But hear me out. I’m starting to get desperate. I know nobody should ever pressure themselves to read more. I don’t wanna pressure myself either and my Goodreads Challenge counter is screaming at me that I’m 13 books behind, so who cares?

But fact is:

  • my Goodreads Challenge counter is currently screaming at me that I’m 13 books behind.
  • I already put my list 20 books lower than last year because why not
  • I aquired about 20 new books in the last three months
  • my TBR is trying to kill me by slowly growing around my bed and keeping me there without access to the fridge
  • it’s just plain sad

I really want to read all those books on my TBR. I really do. I wanna sink into all these worlds and discover new places and meet new characters and go on adventures with them. I don’t even know why my reading time is so drastically decreasing. I just know that it is. And that’s sad. So sad. So sad. It’s a sad, sad situation.

So I have decided to try a Fall TBR. Just a pre-selection if you want, to nudge me in the right direction.

There they are. I know, it’s only four. Doable, right? I mean, fall only stared yesterday, so three months? Let’s take a look, shall we?

Dark Lord of Derkholm

I have never read anything by Diana Wynne Jones, but I know that she wrote “Howl’s Moving Castle”. I bought “Dark Lord of Derkholm” because it sounds funny, chaotic and magical and like something you can sit on the couch or in bed at night and truly relax after a long day at work after dealing with stupid people doing stupid things all day. (You know what I mean.)

Okay, before everybody starts to scream at me…no, I haven’t read it yet but I will! I am really, absolutely, positively willing to start it and finish it. Really. I mean, it’s not like I haven’t tried yet but third time’s the charm, right? Right.


Smoke & Summons

I love Charlie N. Holmberg’s books. They are enchanting and thrilling and wonderful. I liked so many of her other books and I’m sure this one won’t be any different. I can’t wait to get into this new world.


The Missing of Clairdelune

God, I can’t wait to read this book! I CAN’T WAIT! I loved the first book of the series and I was so psyched to buy the next part and I can’t wait for the next book that comes out in November (I think). The only reason I haven’t read it yet is that it’s rather heavy and a pain to carry it to work in my bag every day. ๐Ÿ˜…

So, what do you think? Do you know any of the books?

    1. Ich hab รผber Nevernight so viel Gutes gehรถrt, aber รผber Darkdawn, das gerade rausgekommen ist, so viel nicht so Gutes. Das schreckt irgendwie ab. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ


    1. That’s good to know, thank you. I was about 50 pages in before I put it away and I was a little wary. I like the sarcasm and the footnotes but I somehow don’t like Mia that much yet.

    1. It has 600 pages! ๐Ÿ˜€ But I am quite confident that I can finish it quickly. The first book in the series had about 530 and I managed that in under a week. It just glues you to the pages, I highly recommend it. ๐Ÿ˜€


      1. I saw the title and the cover. ๐Ÿ˜ Unfortunately my French is not good enough for a whole book but itโ€™s called something like A Storm of echos? ๐Ÿค”

  1. I have not heard of these books except for Nevernight which I won’t read because it doesn’t interest me. I hope you will enjoy reading these and if not, that’s okay.

    Like you, my reading has kind of decreased for no reason. I mean, there are millions of books and more as yet to be written and yet sometimes I think it’s better not to try to read more but instead, just try to read – there will always be more books to add your reading list anyway.

    Thank you for visiting my blog, have a lovely day.

    1. I think I just miss that feeling you get when youโ€™re curling up with a good book. When you are really hooked, you know?
      Also, Iโ€™m wondering what Iโ€™m doing instead of reading but you are absolutely right. I guess I shouldnโ€™t worry about it too much and just enjoy it when it happens. ๐Ÿ˜Š


  2. I loved Dark Lord of Derkholm! I enjoy so much of what Diana Wynne Jones writes – her books are all quite different from each other but all of them share the same sheer weirdness. I think in Derkholm she had so much fun mocking a bunch of fantasy tropes, so if you read much fantasy youโ€™ll recognise a lot of what sheโ€™s laughing at xx


  3. Wanting to read all the books on our TBR is a feeling I’m all too familiar with. Good thing we bookworms can relate, right?! ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope you accomplish all of these reading goals – and many thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland. Visit anytime. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I made myself a even bigger TBR pile for October. I just want to see if I can do it. But I guess at the beginning of the month one is always crazy motivated. ๐Ÿ˜€


  4. Ohh I love seasonal TBR’s, I’m actually a big TBR person, though I have been mood reading more lately ๐Ÿ˜„ I haven’t read any of the books on your TBR, but I have heard a lot of praise for Nevernight, I think it’s supposed to be a darker read too, so it could be a great Halloween-y read ๐ŸŽƒ
