Top Ten Tuesday – Books on my Fall 2022 TBR


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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.  Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!

This week’s TTT topic is Books on My Fall 2022 TBR.  I always enjoy this topic because I’m curious to see what my fellow book bloggers are planning to read next.  I am still on my quest to read more of the books I already own, so today I’m sharing a mix of ARCs and books from my own shelves that I’m hoping to read this fall.  The Guncle and Killers of a Certain Age are definite reads because my library holds for the audiobooks both came in this week.

Books on My Fall 2022 TBR




1. THE GUNCLE by Steven Rowley  –  “From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus and The Editor comes a warm and deeply funny novel about a once-famous sitcom star whose unexpected family tragedy leaves him with his niece and nephew.”

2. KILLERS OF A CERTAIN AGE by Deanna Raybourn  – “They’ve spent their lives as the deadliest assassins in a clandestine international organization, but now that they’re sixty years old, four women friends can’t just retire – it’s kill or be killed in this action-packed thriller.”

3. RUNNING WILD by K.A. Tucker – “From the internationally bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, struggling between the safe route and the one that will only lead to more heartbreak.”

4. REMINDERS OF HIM by Colleen Hoover  – “A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.”

5. SPELLS FOR FORGETTING by Adrienne Young – “A deeply atmospheric story about ancestral magic, an unsolved murder, and a second chance at true love.”

6. THE WILDERWOMEN by Ruth Emmie Lang – “Two supernatural sisters uncover their curious past while searching for their missing mother.”

7. BEFORE I DO by Sophie Cousens  –  “What would you do if ‘the one that got away’ turned up the night before your wedding?”

8. EMPIRE OF THE VAMPIRE by Jay Kristoff – “Gabriel de León is a silversaint: a member of a holy brotherhood dedicated to defending realm and church from the creatures of the night. But even the Silver Order couldn’t stem the tide once daylight failed us, and now, only Gabriel remains. Imprisoned by the very monsters he vowed to destroy, the last silversaint is forced to tell his story. A story of legendary battles and forbidden love, of faith lost and friendships won, of the Wars of the Blood and the Forever King and the quest for humanity’s last remaining hope: The Holy Grail.”

9. WHEN IN ROME by Sarah Adams  –  “Opposites certainly attract for the stranded pop star and small-town baker in this charming slice of romance from the author of the TikTok sensation The Cheat Sheet.”

10. RUNAWAY GROOMSMAN by Meghan Quinn  –  “From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn comes a heartfelt romantic comedy about new beginnings and finding the romanticized happily ever after in the most unlikely of places.”

      I just finished The Guncle over the weekend and really enjoyed it. I can see where it would be a difficult read if you’re going through the grieving process yourself though.

    I love seeing Running Wild and Reminders of Him on your list. Both of those were big hits for me, particularly Reminders of Him. When in Rome has been on my radar lately and I’ll be checking my library for that one.

    I’m so keen to get my hands on Quinn’s book! It looks fun 😍 I also really want to read The Guncle—I think I need to prioritse it this year so I can finally read it, lol! I hope you enjoy all of these reads!

    Oh I didn’t know Sophie Cousens had another book out! I really enjoyed the two I’ve red from her this year so I will have to add that to my hold list at the library when it comes out, thanks for sharing! 🙂 I do have The Guncle on my TBR read in goodreads too, but none of the other ones!

    Hope you are having a lovely day 🙂

    The Guncle was something special. I hope you are as charmed as I was. I want to read the Cousens book. I read one (two?) by her, and all good. Hope you find many hits.

      I loved Killers of a Certain Age and The Guncle! My audio hold for Empire of the Vampire should be available in a few days and then I’m ready to finally tackle that one.

    I LOVE the sound of Killers of a Certain Age! Having recently celebrated (commiserated???) an unwelcome significant birthday – I’m all over books featuring heroines well past their prime.

      Killers of a Certain Age was a lot of fun! And I’m with you. The older I get, the more I appreciate stories that feature older protagonists.

    The Guncle was so good – it made me laugh and cry and then laugh again! I just started Killers of a Certain Age so no opinion yet, but I think it’s going to be good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

    Killers of a Certain Age is on my TBR and I hope to get to it soon (I am also on the list at my library for the audiobook). There are others on here that look interesting and I will watch for your reviews, Janette. I hope you enjoy them all.
