Upcoming fiction: Autumn 2012 edition (a top ten list)

This fall there are quite a few upcoming fiction titles that I am excited about. From anticipated debut novels to new entries into a series, what better way to let you know about them than a top ten list. So…here are my top ten books I’m looking forward to this fall brought to you on top ten Tuesday (as hosted by The Broke and The Bookish). In no particular order…

10. The White Forest by Adam McOmber

9. Sutton by J.R. Moehringer

8. Breed by Chase Novak

7. The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

6. Skagboys by Irvine Welsh

5. Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan

4. The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling

3. Mad River by John Sandford

2. The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

1. Something Red by Douglas Nicholas

What is the one book you can’t wait to read this fall? I think I’m most excited about Something Red (which is quite good so far) and The White Forest…

    I’m really looking forward to Rowling’s book, too. Although I can’t help but feel that no matter how much I try to manage my expectations, I’m going to end up disappointed with it. “The Secret Keeper”- the Morton book- is available on Netgalley. In case you haven’t already requested it. I requested it, but I’ll probably get denied- I mostly review YA and I probably don’t have enough followers. But it’s not like it hurts to ask and I’ve gotten approved from things that I should have been rejected for- like I read the publisher’s minimum requirements and I know I didn’t meet them.

    Great list! I don’t think I have any of those on my TBR yet (weird!) so thanks for sharing them. It’ll be interesting to read Rowling’s new book, huh?

    Hey,
    Wanted to follow up and let you know that I got approved for The Secret Keeper through NetGalley. I swear I’m not gloating, just that I was kind of surprised. But also that you and I have been blogging about the same time, so our profiles are probably similar in terms of length of time blogging/followers/posts, etc. Which means you have a good chance of being approved too. So you really should try to request it through NetGalley. You never know- I was positive I’d be rejected. But if you are going to try, try soon. I noticed that I’ve gotten approved more often by big publishers if I request right away, when it first appears on Netgalley, but rejected if I request closer to the release date. I guess they might be more willing to take a chance on a new blogger early on, but once they have enough reviews/requests lined up…I mean I bet if I had 3000 followers and requested a book a week or two from release, I’d be much more likely to get it.

      That’s awesome, it’s okay to gloat :) I haven’t signed up for or used net galley. All my ARC’s have come directly from the publishers or publicists, but I am going to have to try it out – especially since I don’t know if I’ve been approved for the hard copy yet (I rarely know until it arrives on my door step)!

      So I just signed up for Net Galley – that was easy!

    This seems to be a fabulous list! I hadn’t heard of some of these selections before and am excited to add a few more titles to my TBR list!

    “The White Forest” sounds like a really exciting read. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a story where manmade objects have souls. That could be really interesting and helpful as Jane tries to find Nathan.

    I’m a sucker for books about spies, so “Sweet Tooth” has piqued my interest on that aspect alone. “The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared” sounds like it could be a funny read.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions!

      That is both the good and the bad of lists like these. So many great suggestions, but the TBR pile starts to get a bit out of control :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve never read Irvine Welsh, although I’ve tried a couple of times. Are you a fan? What would you recommend?

      I’ve only read the Trainspotting series (Trainspotting, Porno, Skagboys), which I thought was excellent. If you haven’t tried Trainspotting, I would start there. Plus, the movie’s good too…

    Ohhhhh…. The White Forest, the Secret Keeper, and the Casual Vacancy all look fabulous. Cheers for great autumn reads!

    The White Forest isn’t a book I’d normally go for but I’ve read lots of good reviews… another for the (out-of-control) TBR pile!
