Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.
Today’s top ten is basically the top books that I plan to read in the coming months. To be honest, I doubt I will get through all these books by the end of the year as I have my first contemporary novel, Ethersay being released in late Autumn but I will give it a good go.
Death Of A Ladies’ Man by Alan Bissett
I picked up a signed copy of this book when I met Alan at an event in Edinburgh a month or or so ago. He specifically warned me about the racy content although this just made me even more intrigued!
Whisky from Small Glasses by Denzil Meyrick
I don’t normally read crime fiction so it will be quite a different experience for me but this was recommended by a friend so I have decided to give it a go.
Katherine the Queen: The Remarkable Life of Katherine Parr by Linda Porter
This is a biography of Katherine Parr which I will be dipping into over the next few months for research into a future novel that I am planning to write.
The Library of Light and Shadow by M.J. Rose
The third instalment in the Daughters of La Lune series. I loved the first two books and have been looking forward to getting a chance to read this one.
The Words in My Hand by Guinevere Glasfurd
This novel had me intrigued as it features Rene Descartes who I studied at University. It was also short listed for the Costa prize so I have high hopes for it.
The Seymours of Wolf Hall: A Tudor Family Story by David Loades
As with the previous book in this list about Katherine Parr, this is a research book I plan to work through over the next few months to help me plan a future novel.
One More Minute by Scott MacLean
I came across this on Facebook and it caught my eye although it has sat on my shelf so long that I can’t remember why that actually was. I suppose this means it will be an interesting surprise when I do start reading it.
Pale Rose of England: A Novel of the Tudors by Sandra Worth
This is a book I previously started but ended up getting distracted by something else. I hope to finally finish it before the end of the year.
This is the 2nd M.J. Rose book in my list and funnily enough is also the third book in a series I am thoroughly enjoying. Although this time the series is The Reincarnationist.
The Life and Death of St. Kilda by Tom Steel
Another research book for what is hopefully going to be my next contemporary novel.
So what about your own Autumn TBR lists? Please feel free to share your own plans in the comments or via social media.
My list would probably be full of Star Trek novels.. my mission to read ever Trek novel in chronological order seems unending!
Ooh you’re working on a Tudor based novel? Very exciting, one of my favourite time periods!
My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2017/09/19/top-ten-tuesday-125/
It’s early days but yeah, I’m researching for a novel about Katherine Parr. I’ve got sooo many projects on the go just now, so think this one will take me a while, but reading the books on this list will be a good start!
