Books On My Autumn 2018 TBR

There are many wonderful books awaiting me on my bookshelf and Kindle, however here are ten books, ordered alphabetically, I am looking forward to reading this autumn, with the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril reading event in mind:

  1. The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan – This classic Christian allegory is my November read for my church’s book club.
  2. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins – I look forward to continuing my re-read of this thrilling YA trilogy.
  3. Lives of Notorious Cooks by Brendan Connell – This set of fictional biographies of famous chefs through the ages sounds fascinating.
  4. Theatre Royal by Michael Coren – After loving another theatre history from this publisher, I have high hopes for this one too.
  5. Zombie edited by Christopher Golden – A horror, short story collection that will be perfect for my What’s in a Name 2018 reading challenge.
  6. The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory – After loving The Red Queen, I look forward to continuing Gregory’s popular Cousins’ War series.
  7. A Letter of Mary by Laurie R. King – I think it is high time to read more from King’s Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes mystery series.
  8. Kin by Snorri Kristjansson – A dark, intense and compelling Viking murder mystery which I am super excited about reading.
  9. A Gathering of Ghosts by Karen Maitland – After reading The Plague Charmer, I am looking forward to Maitland’s newest dark historical fiction.
  10. The Dragon’s Blade: Veiled Intentions by Michael R. Miller – After reading The Reborn King, I look forward to continuing Miller’s fantasy trilogy.

  1. Lovely list. Hope you enjoy all your choices. I still have to read Maitland – maybe I’ll wait for your review and think about picking up A Gathering of Ghosts.
    Lynn 😀

  2. The only one on your list I have read is the second Hunger Games volume. My autumn list is impossibly long due to so many good novels coming out this fall.

  3. Theatre Royal appeals most to me – I always enjoy reading about the theatre and theatricals. Zombie too, but I’m up to my eyes in horror anthologies this year so I don’t think I could possibly fit another one in! Maybe you’ll change my mind…

  4. I read The Lady of the Rivers earlier this year and really enjoyed it. I also have the two that follow it sitting in my TBR pile since I bought a boxed set of the original five Cousins’ War books.

    I’ll be interested in your thoughts on The Pilgrim’s Progress. I’ve never read it, but bet it’ll make good discussion for your group.

    I read and enjoyed The Hunger Games shortly after they came out. I rarely re-read anything… are you getting more insight the second time through?

    1. Kelly, I am pleased to hear your really enjoyed The Lady of the Rivers – I hope to get to it soon and I have the next two from the series lined up too! I am also interested to read The Pilgrim’s Progress and hopefully it will make for a good discussion point for my church’s book club. And I don’t really think I am gaining that much more insight re-reading The Hunger Games – I just love re-read old favourites: re-meeting characters which are like old friends and rediscovering the smaller details you forget over time.

    1. FranL, I am really looking forward to reading The Lady of the Rivers. It is interesting you said that it is one of the more polarising books in the series, because I heard that about The Red Queen too. And thank you for linking in your TTT post 🙂
