Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.
The rules are simple:
- Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
- Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
- Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists. Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
This week’s topic is Books On My Fall 2019 TBR. I’m hoping my list below is more realistic than the one for my Summer 2019 TBR which, as you can see from this update, I was spectacularly unsuccessful in keeping to. This time I’ve included books I need to read for blog tour commitments during October and November or because they’re due to be published soon. Links from the book titles will take you to the book description on Goodreads.
