Top Five Wednesday: Fall TBR (& a Somewhat Life Update)

Although Top Five Wednesday is still on hiatus, I thought that I would borrow from the spirit of the group for today topic: my fall TBR!

I admit that some of the books below might have been mentioned on older TBR posts. Since the second half of August, life has been super hectic with the start of my college senior year. Between two jobs and a pretty heavy course load, this semester has easily been my most challenging and busy- but hopefully the most rewarding, because I genuinely love almost everything I am studying and doing. I wish that I had more time for the blog and reading because I hold this space very close to my heart. Blogging and reading also allows me to escape from ‘school stuff’ for a bit, which is another reason why I wish I had more time for it! On a side note, I have to commute to the city twice a week for class and being able to read for fun most of the time during my commute is THE BEST.

Anyway, I wanted to create a mini TBR for what’s left of September and October and November, so I can share my reading plans with everyone and hold myself somewhat accountable (see ignoring old monthly TBRs). I definitely foresee myself reading more than 5 books this fall, but the following five books are my absolute priority.

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell- Ready for another mini life update? On top of school and life things, I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled during my fall break (which happens to be tomorrow). One of the positives in this whole situation called my life is that Wayward Son is officially out in the world! That being said, my plan for this upcoming weekend is to lay in bed and eat up this sequel to Carry On. I admit that I’ll be both happy and sad (because I always need more Rainbow Rowell books) that I’ll hopefully have read my favorite author’s two 2019 releases in the same month. Catch me also likely rereading Pumpkinheads in bed.

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh(ARC)- Yes, it is very much true that this blogger is still making her way through her Book Expo 2019 haul. Although I wasn’t the biggest fan of Renee Ahdieh’s The Wrath and the Dawn series, I am really excited to give her books another chance with The Beautiful. It’s really pulling me in for its New Orleans setting and seamstress protagonist.
