I have seen this post on “My Fall Reading List” on a number of blogs (here and here for example.
At “Broke and Bookish”, there has been a huge response to their “Top Ten Books on Your Fall List” post.
On my Fall Intentions Vision board (check here), one goal I stated was to read more. But actually listing the books I want to commit to read is a good one.
For the next three months I need to clear more of my TBR pile. I had posted about the TBR challenge here and so far I have only read 4 of this list of 26! Yikes!
For fiction I plan to read:
The Hobbit by Tolkien (after all these years and even with the movies out, I still haven’t finished this book!)
U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton (I have enjoyed her series – just fallen behind)
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini (so enjoyed the Kite Runner)
From the NF list:
On Writing by Stephen King
Life is a Verb by Patti Digh
Salt, Sugar, Fat by Michael Moss
There are so many other books that I want to read so here are an additional four to round out my list of 10 must reads for fall:
Take Joy by Jane Yolen
The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion (this is my newest buy – loved “The Rosie Project”)
Gabby by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly
I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb
I hope to read many more fiction and non-fiction picture books, chapter books, middle grade and YA novels as well.
What are you planning to read this fall?
