This week’s theme is: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List


1. Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor

This is the book I am gonna read for the October meeting of my Book Club.

2. Northern Lights by Philip Pullman

Okay, if I judge the book by its cover I would say it’s more of a Winter read (It’s the 20th Anniversary Edition). But I bougth this book about a month ago so I really should get to it soon.

3. Monster Hunter Alpha by Larry Correia

I was halfway through my german copy but since it was so chunky I decided I wouldn’t take it to London with me and get an english copy instead. Well .. and after more than 100 days it is still sitting on my shelf .. hehe.

4. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Ohh this book has been on my EReader for a few weeks now and I hope I can get to it as soon as possible.

5. The Empty Grave by Jonathan Stroud

As much as I love the Lockwood & Co series, I’m dreading the release of this book. Why? Because it might be the last book in the series and I’M NOT READY YET!!

6. Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

A very close friend of mine got me this book as late birthday present. Since I visited some of the main places of this book on my last stay in London I could picture everything perfectly. Maybe I’ve visited more places by now and I can imagine everything even better.

This week’s theme is: Top Ten New-To-Me Authors I Read For The First Time In 2016!

1. Leigh Bardugo

I absolutely loved Six of crows and of course had to binge-read the Grisha trilogy. I can’t wait to read more books by her.

2. Amie Kaufman

I may have mentioned that once or twice already, Illuminae was one of my favourite books in 2016 and will definitely watch out for more books

3. Jay Kristoff

Same as above. I can’t wait to finally read Nevernight.

4. Larry Correia

The first Monster Hunter International book was sooo good. I need to read the other books in the series.

5. Sylvain Neuvel

I wanted to read this book because the cover was so damn gorgeous. But I wasn’t sure if this book would work because it was entirely written in interviews. I am very glad I was wrong and can’t wait for book 2 to come out.

6. Rick Yancey

I really liked the 5th Wave trilogy. I really hope I can read more by him.

7. Jens Lubbadeh

His debut novel came out this year and I’ve read it after a colleague recommended it. I really liked his first book and am really excited to read more by him.

8. Ben Aaronovitch

I had been curious about the Rivers of London series for some time but never really got around to read them. So this year a friend lent me her copy of the first book. I wasn’t 100% convinced but deffo will check out the other books.

9. Ransom Riggs

I finally read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children after being told many times how amazing this trilogy was. Again I wasn’t 100% convinced but probably will check out the other books some day.
