Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
This week’s topic is: Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List (to be read list)
I’m enjoying the start of Autumn down here in Australia. The weather is starting to cool off slightly so going outside is almost bearable! 😛
Autumn 2014 Releases I Can’t Wait To Read:
Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (April 17th, 2014) – I love this series and can’t wait to find out what happens next. It’s beautifully written and a series I recommend to adult sand young adults alike.
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E Smith (April 10th, 2014 ) – This is What Happy Looks Like and The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight were both lovely reads and I’m looking forward to this next book by Jennifer E Smith
Sea of Shadows by Kelley Armstrong (April 8th, 2014 ) – I’ve been on a bit of a Kelley Armstrong kick lately. It might because Bitten was turned into a TV show or it might just be that I discovered my Women of the Otherworld books in a box a few months ago… but she’s a great writer and I enjoy the worlds and characters she creates.
Books On My Bedside Table
These are the books I have gotten for review that I’m reading in the next few weeks.
The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J Maas – A set of short stories which show just how Celaena Sardothien became the legend assassin that we’ve come to know and love from the Throne of Glass series. This book can be read without prior knowledge of the series.
Emnity by CJ Andrews – A new dystopia novel by a debut New Zealand author.
Dangerous by Shannon Hale – A teen goes off to space camp and finds herself changed in ways she never expected.
Unnatural Creatures by Neil Gaiman – This is a book of short stories selected by Neil Gaiman. It’s lovely. Before each story, Neil gives a little introduction as to why he selected the story and it makes the compliation that extra special.
The Girl Who Soared Over Fairyland and Cut the Moon in Two by Catherynne M Valante – A lovely middle grade book about a girl named September and her journeys to Fairyland
The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavendar by Leslye Walton – This book is gorgeous. I love the cover and it sounds equal parts emotional and beautiful.
Reviews for these books will be posted on my goodreads and The Reading Room accounts but not on this blog.
The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon – This is a dystopian along the same lines of 1984. It’s not set in a post apocalyptic world but the world is changing. People over reliant on their smartphone type accessories are losing words and books are becoming extinct. There’s a mystery involving a missing person and secret society. Sounds incredible.
The Tea Chest by Josephine Moon – This is a story about a woman who gets inherited a unique tea store and along with others, she has to try to keep it afloat whilst maintaining her own life.
Forever and Always on my TBR List
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand – because I’ve been trying to finish this book for over ten years… and that alone makes me feel old 😛
The Geography of You and Me!! I’m really excited for that one. The other two like this one were really cute, so I’m hoping that this one will be as well.

I’m hopefully reading The Geography of You and Me within the next couple of days. Looking forward to it! 🙂 Great list, Kate!
I have an arc of The Word Exchange on my kindle and I’m actually really excited to jump into that one. It sounds interesting enough. I’m also really intrigued by The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender (AKA the book with the longest title ever. Even longer than Miss Peregrine’s) if only because of the super pretty cover. And, I bought the first The Girl Blah Blah Fairyland Blah Blah Blah (Yes, okay. Long titles need to calm themselves.) book off of book outlet and I’m really excited to read that one.
Here’s My Top Ten Tuesday!
Props to you for tackling the behemoth that is Atlas Shrugged. And thanks, The Word Exchange does sound quite rad — definitely added to my list now!

Jennifer E Smith’s books look STUNNING. I can’t wait to read my copy of This is What Happy Looks Like. And I REALLY have to get my hands on a copy of Laini Taylor’s books. The only ones at my library have tiny print and look way too big!

I haven’t read any Jennifer E Smith yet, must add her to the list! Also loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, so I must check out the sequels 😀 Great list!
The Word Exchange looks really interesting. I tend to pick up my adult books on a whim whenever I’m in a bookshop rather than online (which is where I get most of my YA books), so I never have a massive list of adult books. However, I’ll most certainly add that one to the small list.
Really need to read The Geography Of You And Me, I loved her first book so I’m really hopeful about this one. Love the cover of The Word Exchange too!

Oh I can’t wait for Dreams of Gods and Monsters! You have quite a few that I’ve been curious about for some time now. I hope you enjoy them all!!
I definitely want to read The Geography of Me and You. I’m curious to know if I really like Jennifer E. Smith’s books or not. I read Statistical Prob. and thought it was cute, but I wasn’t in LOVE with it… so I’d like to give her another shot. And that Fairyland book looks cute!! I want to read more Middle Grade 🙂
Thanks for stopping by My TTT
I didn’t know the Geography of You and Me was coming out so soon! I haven’t read any of her books, but I’ve been planning on buying them for my sister. Hopefully they’ll all be fantastic and I can get her the trio someday.
I recently bought Assassin’s Blade, and after reading the first two books in the series I’m really intrigued to find out how Celaena got to where she was in Throne of Glass!
I’m looking forward to reading The Geography of You and Me too. I enjoyed reading the author’s previous two books so hopefully I enjoy this one! I like how all the covers have a similar look.
