Top 10 Tuesday: Books On My Fall TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.   It's mainly a topic based top ten posts where I'll be answering the question and showing off some books.  So if you would like to know more about this meme, CLICK HERE. 

This weeks topic is On My Fall TBR List, so below are the 10 books that are on mine. These are in no certain order, but I will start with the one I'm reading right now.

1.  The Hush Hush series has been on my TBR pile for years. This upcoming month one of my goals is to finish two series. This series is the one I have started with.  I just finished Hush Hush and have started Crescendo. So hopefully I can finish this whole series! I love reading Angels and the like during the fall, just seems like the perfect time to do so.

2. The Fallen series by Lauren Kate is another one that's been on my list for a long time. I've read book one and two, though I'll have to re-read them again since I want to finish the whole series. I have the first three on my shelf already, so I'll be reading them soon!

3. So every year about this time, I like to re-read the whole Harry Potter series, yep I'm adding another series to my lovely list! Who else does a re-read of Harry Potter every year? I know I'm not the only one.

4. The Lucky Ones by Nicholas Sparks - This is another book that's been on my tbr pile for some time now. The reason I'm picking this one to add to my lovely fall list is mainly the colors on this cover! I love them and they look fallish to me.

5. Metaltown by Kristen Simmons - Another fallish looking cover, plus I just got this beautiful book and I'm dying to read it!

6. The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan - Another fall looking book, but I've been wanting to continue reading this series for awhile, so I think it's time!

7. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - Another type of book that I like to read during the Fall is books about witches, so Hex Hall is one that I've been wanting to read for awhile and I would love to get to this one this fall.

8. Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger - Yet again another fall looking cover and one that's also been on my shelf for a few years.

9. Wicked by Gregory Maguire - Do I really have to explain this one? I love this story and have wanted to read it for awhile. I've seen it live now twice! I have a different copy than the one above, I have the Barnes and Noble edition, but I couldn't find an image of that one.

10. Sabriel by Garth Nix - Another fantastic sounding book that's been on my TBR list for awhile. I think it's time to get to this one as well.

So there you have it, my top ten list for today! It's rather long, but I think I picked some amazing books for the fall!

"I'm going to grab a cheeseburger," I told Patch. "Want anything?"  "Nothing on the menu." I smiled. "Why, Patch, are you flirting with me?"  He kissed the crown of my head. "Not yet. I'll grab your cheeseburger. Enjoy the last of the fireworks." 

I 'm loving this whole series so far, the first book was amazing, so much so that I jumped into reading this book right away.  Anyway, hope you enjoyed this little bit of a teaser.  Care to give me a tease into what you're reading?

Top 10 Adult Books That I Want to Read

Hello, everyone! I hope you're all having a great day. Today I wanted to do something a bit different and showcase a few books that I'm wanting to read soon.  Below is the Top 10 Adult Books That I Want to Read in the near future. I know this is something very different for me, I usually showcase mostly Young Adult, but I figured some of my readers are like me and do like an adult book sometimes. I would love to have each of these read by the end of the year.  Most of these books are for mature eyes so yeah.

Let's do this! 

This whole series is amazing, I enjoy this authors writing style and her books always make me laugh. This is the last book in the series and though I'm sad that it's the last book, I'm excited to read it. 

The steamy conclusion of C. L. Parker’s Monkey Business Trio

They have been rivals who fought until the bitter end and lovers who know every sensual inch of each other’s bodies. Now sports agents Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews are about to become the one thing they never expected to be: parents. But this new dynamic to their relationship threatens to fizzle the sizzling desire that once held them in thrall to each other. If salvation is only a forbidden fantasy away, then Shaw and the woman he loves must embark on the adventure of their lives.

Cassidy is aching to reignite their connection. In steamy assignations in strange places, she and Shaw live out their most intimate desires—and reveal their deepest secrets. But as Shaw works overtime to sign a superstar athlete, a corporate reshuffling could be a game-changer. Can Cassidy and Shaw save their relationship and have it all—a career, family, and passion that never quits?

I must say this is a book that I've been dying to get my hands on and read, I love this author's books! 

From the author of Once Upon a Cowboy (“Sexy, charming, and perfectly heartwarming.”—Lauren Layne) comes another sweet novel of the Whisper Creek Ranch, where sizzling Montana men melt the most stubborn hearts.

After Alexis Maguire’s wedding day comes and goes without a groom, she decides that it’s time for a change. Tired of being the dependable, steady—and apparently boring—one, Alexis hopes that a cross-country road trip will help her loosen up and find her inner sparkle. Her first stop is the Whisper Creek Ranch, where the hot wranglers are sure to bring out her inner party girl. The trouble is, she can’t stand pretending to be someone she’s not—especially around the cowboy who tempts her to stay put.

Gunnar Peterson has spent six months working at Whisper Creek, and he’s never been happier. Having grown up an army brat, he’s ready to put down roots, and the only thing missing is a woman to share his life with. When Alexis blows into town, Gunnar thinks he may have met his match, despite the wild-child facade he sees right through. But Alexis swears she won’t settle down anytime soon—so it’s up to Gunnar to convince her that what she’s looking for . . . is right here.

Do I even need to say why this book is on this list. Okay it's because of the author and I loved the first book in the series. Plus it's Kentucky men! (Just saying.) 

#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward delivers the second novel in her Bourbon Kings series—a sweeping saga of a Southern dynasty struggling to maintain a façade of privilege and prosperity, while secrets and indiscretions threaten its very foundation…

In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème de la crème of high society—just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discrete staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder…

No one is above suspicion—especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward. The bad blood between him and his father is known far and wide, and he is aware that he could be named a suspect. As the investigation into the death intensifies, he keeps himself busy at the bottom of a bottle—as well as with his former horse trainer’s daughter. Meanwhile, the family’s financial future lies in the perfectly manicured hands of a business rival, a woman who wants Edward all to herself.

Everything has consequences; everybody has secrets. And few can be trusted. Then, at the very brink of the family’s demise, someone thought lost to them forever returns to the fold. Maxwell Bradford has come home. But is he a savior...or the worst of all the sinners?

Another one of my favorite authors! I adore everything written by her. 

 Sometimes you have to create your own destiny...
Christy Knight grew up in Destiny, Ohio, but lately she feels that her future lies elsewhere. Her parents are gone and the beautiful jewelry she creates doesn't pay the bills. Maybe it's time for Christy to grow up and find a guy who's smart, sexy, and solvent. Her rugged handyman neighbor fits the first two categories, but he's all wrong for her. If only he didn't have such captivating blue eyes.

Wary of trusting others, Jack DuVall hasn't been entirely honest with Christy. He's not really a handyman. He's not really broke. And sharing the long drive to visit her beloved grandpa isn't just about gallantry—he finds gorgeous, feisty Christy completely irresistible.

When secrets are exposed, Jack and Christy struggle to find their way back to one another, but the quirky seaside town of Coral Cove could prove the perfect place to find a red-hot destiny of their own.

I am super excited to read this one, it's been on my shelf for over a year and this author is super sweet. I read the first chapter the first night I bought this one, but was at a convention and haven't gotten the chance to pick it back up yet. I think I need to make the time now though. 

Leaving him was Impossible…

It took everything she had for FBI Special Agent Danica Beckett to walk away from the man she loved. But if she wants to save his life, she has to keep her distance. Now, with a killer on the loose and the stakes higher than ever before, the Department of Covert Ops is forcing these former lovers into an uneasy alliance…whether they like it or not.

Seeing her again is even worse

The last thing Clayne Buchanan wants is to be shackled to the woman who broke his heart. She gets under his skin in a way no one ever has and makes him want things he has no right to anymore. All he has to do is suffer through this case and he can be free of her for good. But when Clayne finds out why Danica left in the first place, everything he’s tried to bury comes roaring back—and there’s no way this wolf shifter is going to take no for an answer this time.

This one is another book that's been on my shelf for awhile, though it sounds amazing. I can't wait to pick it up and read it. 

When nurse Tish Everett forced open the pesky but lovely locket she found at an estate sale, she had no idea she was answering the call of Criminy Stain, from the far off land of Sang. He’d cast a spell for her, but when she’s transported right to him, she’s not so sure she’s ready to be under the spell of another man. (It didn’t go so well last time with controlling, abusive, domineering Jeff.) If only Criminy wasn’t so deliciously rakish….

Half the inhabitants of Sang are Pinkies—human—and the other half are Bludmen, who in Tish’s world would be called vampires. But they don’t mess with any of the bat/coffin/no sunlight nonsense. They’re rather like you and me, just more fabulous, long living, and mostly indestructible. (They're also very good kissers.) But when the evil Mayor of Manchester (formerly Bludchester) redoubles his efforts to rid Sang of the Bludmen once and for all, stealing Tish’s locket in hopes of traveling back to her world himself for reinforcements, Criminy and Tish must battle ghosts, sea monsters, wayward submarines, a secret cabal, and thundering Bludmares to get the locket back and allow Tish to return home…but has she found love with Criminy? Could she stay in Sang forever?


Another book that's been on my shelf for some time, I even have the second book as well. It's one of those books that I loved the movie so I thought oooh maybe I should read the book. Yep I need to read this one! 
 Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan.

Rachel has always been the consummate good girl—until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness.

Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend.

I have to admit, I have a pile of this type of book on my shelves, this one however caught my attention this week and I really want to read it. So the plan is to take it to work with me and read it durning lunch. 

 "I'm pregnant." Two words that will rock one man's world forever.

On location for a film about a horse-racing dynasty, Lily Beaumont is drawn into a sizzling affair with sexy stablehand Nash James. Now she has to trust him with the truth about their baby.

Even though the undercover millionaire is on a mission against his hated rival, he won't walk away from Lily or their unborn child. It will mean coming clean about his true identity—and the decades-old secret that brought him to Kentucky horse country. But will the truth cost him the woman and family he now craves?

I love this author and have this whole series in paperback. I can't wait to read this one, they look and sound so good. This one will probably be the second one I read on this list. 

 John Palmer hasn't felt like a real man since he was injured during combat in Iraq. Though not content with his new life, he is mostly adapting, just like the other vets at the Lost ‘N’ Found Investigative Service. When Shannon Murphy is hired on as the new office manager, life suddenly gets a lot more interesting. Before long, John finds himself wondering if he could ever be the kind of man Shannon needs.
Shannon Murphy wasn't really looking for love when she hired on at LNF, but finds herself hopelessly attracted to the sex-on-wheels former Marine, John Palmer. The man is grumpy and nearly impossible to work with, but his brand of masculinity appeals to her on a basic level. Soon Shannon is wondering just what it would take for John to want her the way she wants him.
When an old enemy tries to settle a vendetta against Shannon, John insists on protecting her. He moves into her house, fanning the spark of attraction into a blaze. But the danger continues to escalate. Will the connection that they've found survive when they’re thrust into a fight for their lives?

Last but not least, Outlander! This book is huge so it's going to take me some time, but I have been dying to read this one. I love the show so much so it's only natural for me to want to read it as well. 

 The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding border clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of lairds and spies that may threaten her life, and shatter her heart. For here James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, shows her a love so absolute that Claire becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire—and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

So there you go, 10 Adult books that I want to read soon! When I mean soon I mean I'm starting the first today at work. LOL. Hope you all have a great Friday! Oh and if you have any adult book recomendations, send them my way. I'm always looking for other books to read!
