Most Anticipated Books Coming This Fall

this post is part of Top Ten Tuesday, a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

This week on Top Ten Tuesday we’re looking forward to all the exciting book releases coming this Fall! As per usual, I give you a top ten with honourable mentions, across most genres: young adult, contemporary romance, historical fiction, fantasy, mystery, dystopia, even non-fiction. Some books are part of series, others are standalone reads. Since I’m re-reading the Outlander series and Harry Potter, I don’t think I’ll pick any of these up before November, though! In my honourable mentions I have two very popular YA (one by Cassandra Clare, the other by Laini Taylor), that would surely make the top ten if I had read the previous books in the series – so look out for those!

My Sister, The Serial Killer

by Oyinkan Braithwaite | Mystery

“Satire meets slasher in this short, darkly funny hand grenade of a novel about a Nigerian woman whose younger sister has a very inconvenient habit of killing her boyfriends.” They had me at satire meets slasher, but the African setting and the twist of Korede’s love interest taking a liking to her sociopathic sister makes this one refreshing and very entertaining.

Consumed (Firefighters #1)

Romantic Suspense | by J.R. Ward

Anne is a fearless firefighter, but a risky decision forces her to change careers and become an arson investigator. She teams up with fireman Danny to investigate a case, and so love and danger ensues. Typical of the genre, but the firefighter theme is a nice change from the usual cop/spy/army characters. Plus J.R. Ward is an author I enjoy, so this a no-brainer.

The Witch Elm

by Tana French | Mystery

After a near death experience, Toby returns to his ancestral family home to recover and take care of his dying uncle. But a skull is found in an elm tree in his garden, which triggers an investigation, and exposes a web of secrets about his family’s past. So if this is about witches, I’m all in. Also I’ve been meaning to read something from Tana French for the longest time, but never caught a standalone from her.

The Proposal

Contemporary Romance | by Jasmine Guillory

So a woman goes to a Dodgers game with her boyfriend of five months, he proposes to her on the scoreboard, she turns him down, crowd goes angry, a handsome doctor rescues her – she starts hooking up with him instead. I haven’t read her previous novel The Wedding Date, but this sounds like mindless fun, so we’ll give it a go when a light read is needed. And I’m a sucker for cute illustrated covers.

The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein

by Kiersten White | Historical Fiction, Young Adult

A retelling of Frankenstein, told from the perspective of Elizabeth – an orphan the family takes in, and future wife of Victor. She had a rough life before meeting them, and is determined to do whatever it takes not go back, even when Frankenstein’s world takes a very dark turn. I haven’t read Frankenstein so I know that’s something I must do before diving into this retelling. I think they’ll make a great double read though, as this one honestly sounds pretty fantastic.

One Day in December

Contemporary Romance | by Josie Silver

Another contemporary romance but this one actually sounds like it has an interesting and moving story. Love at first sight non-believer Laurie sees a man at a bus station once, and is convinced he’s the one. She searches for him across the city for a year, only to meet him at a Christmas party as her best friend’s new boyfriend, Jack. The story goes on for 10 years and it seems to deal with how their relationships grew, the complications, and the what ifs of life.

The Witch of Willow Hall

by Hester Fox | Historical Fiction

Like I said before: witches. Set in 1821, it follows a family who fled to their country estate, where one of three daughters is, unknowingly, a witch. I think – the synopsis is appropriately vague. Reviews say it has that dark and gloomy atmosphere of gothic romances, so this honestly sounds like a dream book to me, and perfect for Fall.

Kingdom of Ash (Throne of Glass #7)

Young Adult, Fantasy | by Sarah J. Maas

Being the seventh book in this series, if you’re here, you don’t need a synopsis. Know just that Kingdom of Ash will be the final chapter in the Throne of Glass series. Everything leads to this moment and it’s been so long I’m not sure I know what that everything is, but, I hope it’s great. 😬

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Montague Siblings #2)

by Mackenzi Lee | Young Adult, Historical Fiction

Another adventure from the Montague siblings, this time focusing on the sister, Felicity. The only way to achieve her dream of becoming a doctor is making a trip to Germany, with a girl who’s willing to fund it. But this girl has some shady motives that of course launch Felicity into an adventure across Europe.

The first book really surprised me with its fast-paced and fun plot, and a distinct writing style that had me completely engrossed – so I’m hoping the same applies to this sequel.

The Lost Sisters (The Folk of the Air #1.5)

Fantasy, Young Adult | by Holly Black

This novella is a companion to The Cruel Prince, focusing on Jude’s sister Taryn and her “secrets”. Unexpectedly, since for me most YA novels are essentially the same story told over and over again, I LOVED The Cruel Prince.

And that is because even though from a distance it sounds like every other YA fantasy book, the way Holly Black builds the setting and the story was completely enchanting to me. This world felt very real to me and I can’t wait to go back in, even if for only a short story.

    So many good books here.. oh and I’m so looking forward to Cassandra Clare’s third book in The Dark Artifices series. I’m planning to reread the first two before that, and since I now realised it’s coming out in December, I think I actually have the time to reread them! I though, for some reason, it came out in October – sad though, I’ve been looking forward to it!

      Ahhh I NEED to read Clare’s series. I need TIME.

    The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein is intriguing! I love the idea of reading creepy/thriller/horror books in October! Happy Tuesday!

    • October 6, 2018 / 10:46 PM

      It sounds so good and it’s out now, so fingers crossed we’ll like it 🤞🏻

    Nice list! I’m excited for GRIM LOVELIES. I have an ARC, just haven’t dipped into it yet. One of these days!

    Happy TTT!

    • October 6, 2018 / 10:48 PM

      Hope you get to read it soon, I sure think you need to get on Grim Lovelies ASAP! I just got it on iBooks but am not sure when I’ll get to it either – so many great new books 😬

    Oh! I read an ARC of One Day In December and REALLY liked it. It’s unique when it comes to the time span the story happens in. Years and years pass by during the story, which is so different compared to similar stories where it all happens in a few months’ time. I really enjoyed that! And you also get way more life events, struggles and all that. Definitely one I’d recommend any time. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    And, of course, The Ladies Guide. I’ve been looking forward to that one ever since I found out. Didn’t really like Monty, but I’m all for Felicity, haha. Can’t wait to see what she’s going to get upt to!

    Happy reading! 😀

    Here’s my TTT should you want to check it out. 🙂

      SO happy you liked One Day in December, I have hopes for it! Your description sounds exactly like something I’d love so I’m sure I’ll like it 😍

      The Ladies Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is out now (god I sound like a bot 😂), and I got it and aaaahhh I so want to pick it up but I’m rereading Outlander and I’m committed 💪🏻

    Some of these sound great, I’ll have to keep an eye out for them.

    • October 6, 2018 / 10:53 PM

      Great, hope you end up enjoying them!
