This is a post I’ve seen a lot of bloggers writing lately, and I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon. (I like books, and I needed an easy post while I’m supposed to be keeping up with Preptober Prompts.) So, here are the books I’m reading this fall.
Fallen Leaves by Tessa Emily Hall
Fallen Leaves isn’t coming out until the 26th, but I got an ARC copy to review and that review will be going up next Saturday. (Check out my review here.)
King’s Warrior by Jenelle Leanne Schmidt
This is another I got free to review, and I’m about a third of the way through it currently. It’s not a top favorite, but it’s been enjoyable so far. (Update: Read my full review here.)
Dragons’ Bane by Melody Jackson
Melody is a friend of mine, and I got both Dragons’ Bane and Dragons’ Might for free to review in preparation for the release of Dragons’ Hope this winter. (Which I’m super excited for! You can see my cover reveal post here. ^-^)
Women of Kern by Maris McKay
This is the one I’ve been primarily reading lately, and I might review it this Thursday if I finish it soon enough. The world Maris has created is really deep and richly developed, and her description is excellent (if a bit too in-depth for my taste in places). Desert fantasy is something I’m trying to read more of as I develop Kersir, and this is definitely a great example of the genre. (Check out my review here.)
This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti
This is a re-read for me (possibly a second re-read). This Present Darkness is an excellent book that delves into the spiritual battle being waged in our lives.
Azalei’s Fall by Miranda Marie
This is the third book in the Fire Rain Chronicles. I read the first two fairly quickly, but my reading tapered off about the time I finished Azalei’s Strategy and I didn’t get to Azalei’s Fall. The plan is to read it this fall, though, and find out how things end for Azalei and her crew. (Check out my review for the first book, Azalei’s Riders, here.)
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
This was a recommendation from my best friend, who loved it. (You can read her review of the duology here.) I haven’t gotten to it yet because I’ve been trying to focus on my to-review books, but I expect I’ll enjoy it. (And there were some plot twists that surprised Allegra, so I’m hoping to be surprised for once, lol.)
Tales of the Slayer Volume 1
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of the shows my dad and I watch together, so my sister got this book for me for my birthday and I’ve worked through it story-by-story since then. (It’s a collection of short stories.) It’s been good so far, but I haven’t gotten very far through it since I’ve been reading it so sporadically.
Rose of the Oath by Hope Ann
I’m super blessed to be one of Hope Ann’s alpha readers and part of her street team, but I haven’t actually read any of her published books except The Stealthmaster’s Shadow and the beginning of Rose of the Oath (I’ve grown familiar with her through Kingdom Pen and Story Embers more than her writing). I’m working on remedying that, obviously. I enjoy fairytale retellings, fantasy, and Christian themes, so her stories are a good fit.
I’m not sure I’ll get all of these books read this fall, but I’m hoping to get through a fair number of them before December.
What are you reading this fall? Have you read any of the books on my list?
