Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
This week’s topic: Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List
Wow, I can’t believe we’ve already in the autumn season…Not that I’m complaining, I’m not a fan of hot weather 😛 Initially I had quite a different list set for today but given how busy it’s been for me now that I’m also back in school, I’m keeping my list a wee bit on the light side if possible. Anywho, in no particular order:
- All Our Wrongs Today by Elan Mastbi — This book was everywhere earlier this year. I’m hoping to read this for November’s Sci-Fi Month 🙂
- Before the Fall by Noah Hawley — I tend to read thrillers whenever I’m locked down with schoolwork so this may or may not be a quick read. Sounds interesting though!
- Beren & Luthien by J.R.R. Tolkien — I initially was thinking of reading this during the summer but then for whatever reason felt that this would make for a better autumn read. I think it’s because of the way their story turned out…
- Through Black Spruce by Joseph Boyden — The last of his books presently on my TBR pile. I actually read the first chapter or so but then put it down in favour of other books at the time. Nonetheless it sounds like it’ll be an interesting read.
- The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey — Jane Eyre influences, you say? Then definitely an autumn read 😀
- The Undertaking by Audrey Magee — I’ve been wanting to read this book since it was shortlisted for the Baileys Women’s Prize in Fiction a few years ago. I got my hands on it earlier this year but have yet to read it. I think this season makes it perfect to read this book…
- Everyone’s Just So So Special by Robert Shearman — His books make perfect Hallowe’en reading 😀
- Dune Messiah et. al. by Frank Herbert — This is actually a re-read. I was hoping to re-read Dune Messiah and Children of Dune in preparation to read the final three books in the series. Unfortunately it looks like I’m going to have a very busy semester so I’m lucky if I even re-read Dune Messiah for Sci-Fi Month. We’ll see.
- Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman — Neil Gaiman’s books always make for great autumn reading. I also want to read his preferred edition of Neverwhere so we’ll see!
- Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld — This should be a fun read. I hope xD
And that’s my list of books that I hope to get around to reading this autumn 🙂 What books are you hoping to get around to reading? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you! Happy Tuesday 🙂
