TTT: Ten Books I’m Looking Forward To This Fall

There are so many great releases this fall that I had trouble picking just ten! I will say that I have never been so glad in all my days to have thirteen library cards. See, most libraries don’t add new books to their inventory till just before the release date, and I’ve never seen them announce it ahead of time, so you are really stuck checking and checking and checking, and then finding yourself 73rd on the hold list. There is kind of a way around this, and that is that you can request that the library purchase the book as soon as you hear about it, and then once they do puchase it, you are automagically added to the hold list, before the book goes live in their system.

The only trixie bit is that you can only make three purchase requests per week…but that’s three per week PER LIBRARY. So, thirteen library cards…39 requests per week. I know. I KNOW.

So, anyway, here are ten books that I requested from four different libraries in the last couple weeks.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

  1. What on earth is “State of Terror”? Is it fiction or a political treatise? I’m going to have to check out the blurb, since I’m seeing both Clinton and Penny on the cover. Thanks for the heads-up!

    1. Fiction. I love Louise Penny so much, and regardless of what anyone feels about HRC, I imagine her insider perspective would be invaluable in writing a political thriller. I can’t wait.

  2. That’s a good tip with the library but I’m not in a hurry to read any book. I have not even considered getting more than one library card. There might be restrictions in my state for doing that. But I also find it hard to keep more than one account.

    I have not read any of these and I have no idea what they are about but The Orphan Witch looks good to me.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Have a lovely day.

  3. THIRTEEN library cards? I have two (one for the city library system and one for the county) and I thought that was excessive 🙂 I’m lucky, though, in that between the two systems, they’re always buying new books and you can get on the holds list as soon as the libraries order the books, even if they don’t come out for awhile.

    I’ve seen EIGHT PERFECT HOURS on lots of lists today. It looks like a fun one!

    Happy TTT!

    1. So, I live in DC, and they have library reciprocity for all of the District. MD and VA. Once you have a card in any of those juristictions, you can get a card in any other library. And their catalogues are pretty different! So, I have cards from…four counties in MD, six counties in VA, one in DC, plus I pay for access to a couple more (Brooklyn, Houston). It’s insane, but I like the options. 🙂


  4. I didn’t know that Emily Henry had a new one coming out, I will have to watch for it. I just read and reviewed Eight Perfect hours and loved it. Under a Whispering Door is also good. I hope you enjoy them all, Lori.

  5. Already have a couple of these on my radar and wish list and am sooooo looking forward to the Clinton/Penny thriller. I’m predicting it’ll be a knockout (esp. if Penny’s written it.)


  6. Wow, 13 library cards is awesome! 😂 I still haven’t read Emily Henry’s books yet but I have them (including this one) on my TBR and I’m looking forward to giving them a try cos I’ve heard really good things about them! I read Under the Whispering Door last month and I absolutely loved it—Klune is definitely a favourite and I hope you enjoy the book too!
