  1. Ooh these look so good Anne! I hope you get to read them all :-) Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  2. These all sound amazing! I'm most interested in The Rest of Us Just Live Here. :) Happy reading!

  3. All the sudden I've started seeing The Rest of Us Just Live Here and am starting to feel like maybe I need to read it! Some of these others look interesting, too :-)

  4. Honor Girl and Lair of Dreams look good! I must check them out.
    Here is my Top Ten Autumn TBR list here.

  5. The Rest of Us Just Live Here, Lair of Dreams, and I Crawl Through It are ones I MUST get to soon!! That Diviners book is just SO big!! It intimidates me bc it's a big commitment :)n Thanks for stopping by my list!

  6. Out of Darkness and Shadowshaper are both on my radar. So many good books out already and more being released! Hope you get to all the book on your list!

  7. Oh I'm gonna have to read The Hired Girl - hadn't heard of it yet! My TTT

  8. I've heard of a few of these books and I even have the first book in the series but I have yet to read them. I guess with their sequels out now I can go ahead and have more than one to read at a time so less waiting.

  9. This is a great list! I want to read Lair of Dreams too. And, of course, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, which I keep forgetting about--what is wrong with me?! The Sleeper and Spindle wasn't on my radar but is now thanks to you. And Drowned City sounds like a must read. I'll have to add that one to my wish list for sure (okay, just did).

  10. All with the exception of Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Perez is on my tbr pile. I actually haven't heard of the Perez book but it should be added to the tbr pile too. Great list!

  11. I've heard a lot about Patrick Ness' books, but never read them and The Hired Girl's cover is so cool. Gotta love vintage vibes. :) Thanks so much for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon, Anne. :)

  12. Wow, you have a really good mix of genres in your TBR! I just looked up I Crawl Through It and decided to add it to my to read list. Happy Fall Reading!

  13. The Sleeper and the Spindle is definitely on my radar too. Very exciting list, I'll be interested in reading your thoughts when you manage to read through them!

  14. Lair of Dreams is on my TBR too, I really need to pick it up soon, but it's so big and I really need a reread of The Diviners before diving into the sequel so I'm not sure when that will happen. I'll be back to read your thoughts on it if you do read it!
    Thanks for stopping by the The Local Muse

  15. I finally got my ARC of Lair of Dreams like I'd wanted so bad, now just have to have the time to pick it up and read! I loved Walk on Earth a Stranger, hope you get to it soon. And I have a copy of Shadowshaper that I won, and I'm trying to decide if I want to try to read it or just go ahead and donate it to the high school library where I work and read it in between the kids getting to read it. Great picks! Hope you get to them!

  16. What an interesting and varied list. I have Honor Girl on my wishlist and I am very excited for Walk of Earth a Stranger!

  17. I'm super eager to get around to reading the new Libba Bray and Patrick Ness as well! Fantastic list of books to look forward to. :)

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
