Top Ten Tuesday: My Autumn TBR

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, asks us to list ten books on our Autumn TBR. As usual, I have a lot more than ten books that I’m hoping to read in the next few months, but I have chosen a selection of them to list below.

Two books I’m hoping to get to soon for the R.I.P. XIV event:

1. The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper

2. Tombland by CJ Sansom

A book left over from my 20 Books of Summer List:

3. The Doll Factory by Elizabeth Macneal

My Classics Club Spin result, announced yesterday:

4. Two on a Tower by Thomas Hardy

Some review copies I haven’t read yet:

5. To Calais, in Ordinary Time by James Meek

6. A Single Thread by Tracy Chevalier

For the Read Christie 2019 Challenge:

7. Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie

Next in a series started earlier this year:

8. Dragon Haven by Robin Hobb

Non-fiction, because I don’t read enough of it:

9. The Brothers York by Thomas Penn

10. Following in the Footsteps of Henry Tudor by Phil Carradice


Have you read or will you be reading any of these? Which books are on your autumn/fall TBR?

    Great selection of books, Helen ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t read any of them, but quite a few I would be interested in reading. In my TTT post this week my autumn to-be-read list is made up of suitably spooky and mysterious books for R.I.P. XIV.

    I was VERY disappointed with Tombland. I have loved Sansomโ€™s books up to this point and enjoyed the first third of this book, but the second 2/3 were not at all what I expect from the author. I DID finish the book though, which is very unusual for a book I rate with only 2 stars on Goodreads.

    • Helen says:

      Oh, I’m sorry to hear that! I’ve loved all of the other Shardlake books so I’ve been looking forward to reading Tombland. I hope I don’t find it as disappointing as you did.

    I have The Brothers York too, though I probably won’t get to it till January. I enjoyed his previous book, Winter King, on Henry VII very much, so hopefully this one will be just as good.

    • Helen says:

      I enjoyed Winter King too and am expecting to enjoy this one even more as it covers my favourite period of history. I’m not sure when I’ll actually get round to reading it, though!

    I have Tombland and The Doll Factory in my TBR pile but didn’t include them in my list because, realistically, I can’t see myself getting to either of them in the next few months. Especially Tombland, which I have in audio book form, because it’s just so flippin big! I’ve loved previous books in the series though.

    • Helen says:

      Yes, the Shardlake books seem to get bigger and bigger! I’ve had my copy of Tombland since it came out last year, though, so I really want to find time for it soon.

  5. Judy Krueger says:

    I did not know there was a new book by James Meek. I read The People’s Act of Love and found it excellent! I also am looking forward to reading The Dark Is Rising.

    • Helen says:

      I’ve never read anything by James Meek, so I’m glad to hear you’ve enjoyed one of his previous books. I’m hoping to start The Dark is Rising in the next few days!
