Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten Books TBR This Autumn

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

1 – A Clash of Kings by George R.R Martin

I’m a big fan of the TV show and only recently started reading A Game of Thrones. The book is as addictive as the show, so I’ll be reading this as soon as I finish Thrones.

2 – A Storm of Swords by George R.R Martin

Even though they’re thick enough to build walls with, the Song of Fire and Ice books are addictive and I race through them, so I’ll read the third book this autumn too.

3 – Lockwood & Co. 3 The Hollow Boy by Jonathan Stroud

Humour, action, great writing. Enough said.

4 – Skulduggery Pleasant 9: The Dying of the Light by Derek Landy

Humour, action, great writing. Enough said too.

5 – Demon Road by Derek Landy

The idea sounds pretty good and with Landy there is a guarantee of action and humour.

6 – Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I wasn’t a big fan of the first book, but as the series gets gritter and more like A Song of Ice and Fire it gets better.

7 – Solomon Creed by Simon Toyne

The blurb for this sounds epic:

One lone figure emerges alive from the wreckage. He has no memory of his past, and no idea of his future. He only knows he must save a man. But how do you save someone who is already dead?

8 – Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer/Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan


Can’t go wrong with a book Riordan most of the time and Norse mythology is my favourite out of Greek, Roman, Egyptian etc.

9 – Duma Key by Stephen King

Stephen King. Enough said again.

10 – Golden Son by Pierce Brown

I wrote a mixed review about the first book, but looking back I enjoyed it more than I thought.

Is anyone reading one or more of the same books this autumn/fall? Anyone else read A Song of Ice and Fire, if so what do you think, as good as, better than, or not as good as the TV show?


About Sam Whitehouse

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control. Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones. Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper. A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.

  1. Both Demon Road and Queen of Shadows are on my TBR for this autumn too.
    My TTT:

  2. A lot of people I know really loved Golden Son! And the Game of Thrones books are just amazing. Even more so than the TV show at times 🙂

    My TTT.

  3. I see your gloriously fantasy-packed list and highly approve! Enjoy!

    I’m also currently reading A Clash of kings hehehe. I’m finding it rather slow to be honest. But I like it nonetheless. Happy reading!

  5. Golden Son is definitely worth a read, I loved it even more than the first one. And Magnus Chase is going to be really interesting, I know very little about Norse mythology, so I’m looking forward to it! And the Song of Ice and Fire books are so good too!
