Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List
There are many wonderful books awaiting me on my bookshelf and Kindle, however here are ten books I am particularly looking forward to reading this Autumn (ordered alphabetically by title):
Assassination at Bayou Sauvage by D J Donaldson
After loving Blood on the Bayou last year, I am excited to read another mystery with medical examiner Andy Broussard and criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn.
Cauldstane by Linda Gillard
Gillard is one of my favourite authors and last year, I was thrilled to top up my Kindle with three of her novels. Of those three I fancy reading this first.
Headline Murder by Peter Bartram
This Crampton of the Chronicle mystery has sat on my Kindle for too long and there doesn’t seem a better time of year to finally get round to it.
The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland
Maitland’s historical fiction tends to be on the dark side with a touch of the supernatural, so I’ve been saving this for when the night’s start to draw in.
The Quarry by Iain Banks
This mystery from the late, great Banks has sat on my bookshelf for too long and this seems like the season to finally give it a go.
Queens of Conquest by Alison Weir
I am super excited about this: the latest history from Weir about medieval queens.
The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
After loving The White Queen earlier this year, I am looking forward to continuing Gregory’s popular Cousins’ War series.
Season of Storms by Susanna Kearsley
I don’t think Autumn would be Autumn without a sweeping historical mystery from, one of my favourite authors, Kearsley.
The Shadow Queen by Anne O’Brien
O’Brien is pretty much my go-to-author when I want to be lost in a good historical fiction, so I am excited to read her latest novel.
The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman [re-read]
I am looking forward to continuing my comforting re-read of Pullman’s young adult trilogy, His Dark Materials.
