fall 2015 reading list

Fall is my favorite time for book blogging.  Some of my favorite events happen.


Hopefully, Nonfiction November will be back.  I loved that too.

Here are the books that I plan on reading soon.

The Aeronaut's Windlass (The Cinder Spires, #1)The Aeronaut’s Windlass by Jim Butcher

I don’t know what this one is about and I really don’t care. I love Jim Butcher’s books and I’ll read them all. This one is the start of a new series. The only sad thing is that isn’t isn’t narrated by James Marsters who I think of as the voice of Jim Butcher. It is released this month.

Wicked City (Zephyr Hollis, #2)Wicked City by Alaya Dawn Johnson

I recently read Moonshine, the first Zephyr Hollis book. It is about a woman in early 20th century New York who is a social justice crusader. This version of New York though includes vampires.
This is currently on its way to me through intralibrary loan.

The Killing Moon (Dreamblood, #1)The Killing Moon by N.K. Jemisin

Can you believe that I’ve never, ever read any N.K. Jemisin? I’ve promised myself that I will make the time during #diversiverse in October this year.

When Autumn LeavesWhen Autumn Leaves by Amy S. Foster

This is about a witch who has been promoted and needs to leave the town she takes care of as soon as she finds a replacement. Requested through intralibrary loan.

The SelloutThe Sellout by Paul Beatty

This is a satire about reinstating slavery and segregation. I don’t know much else about it. I like not to read too much about books before I read them.

Currently waiting for my turn from the library.

The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of ConsciousnessThe Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness by Sy Montgomery

If I wasn’t a veterinarian, I’d have liked to study octopi. This nonfiction books about working with them sounds perfect for me.

War of the Whales: A True StoryWar of the Whales: A True Story by Joshua Horwitz

This is a nonfiction books about the relationship between Navy sonar and beaching whales.

The Shepherd's Crown (Discworld, #41; Tiffany Aching, #5)The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett

I did it. I ordered it. It’s here but I haven’t opened the package yet. I’m going to read it. I’ll be so sad.


A Fall of MarigoldsA Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner

I got this book in a swap and it sounds great. It has intertwining stories taking place in 1911 and 2011.

SoundlessSoundless by Richelle Mead

I like fantasy books set in China. I tend to be disappointed by a lot of YA fantasy though so I don’t know if I’ll rush to read this one even though it sounds interesting.

What books are you looking forward to reading this fall?
