Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Fall TBR List

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday feat. The Book Wars! Here’s a peek into some of our TBR piles for the season!



Oh the dreaded TBR. I never keep to them and if anything they keep me from reading. But since this is a thing, I will list the titles of books I would like to get to (without pressure at all!).

  1. The Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix that Janet and I are reading in October. Join us.
  2. The Mapmaker’s Trilogy by S. E. Grove
  3. Conspiracy of Ravens – Lilah Bowen
  4. Lair of Dreams – Libba Bray
  5. …and more.


I’m participating in a Mock Caldecott group at work, which means I’ve got a lot of catching up to do in the picture book department…Wish me luck!
