This week for “Top Ten Tuesday” – the weekly meme hosted at “That Artsy Reader Girl” – asks:
What is on my Fall TBR list?
Several of the books on this list are books that have been on former lists. Now they must be read!
- Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood I have to finally finish it if I want to read her sequel.
2. The Better Man by Louise Penny
3. The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline
4. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
5. Sapphire Flames by Ilona Andrews
6. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
7. The Alchemist by Paul Coehlo
8. Becoming by Michelle Obama
9. Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
10. A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
When I completed the list, I realized many were dystopian or fantasy. many of these are also meant to fulfill categories for several reading challenges I participate in.
I know I will read quite a few more books, in different genres but these are the must-read books for the next three months.
I didn’t put any of your picks on my list this week, but The Handmaid’s Tale is amazing – I think you’ll love it! Just about everything else you listed is on my actual TBR list – I’m especially excited about The Clockwork Orange! Happy reading!
Thanks Maggie. I have been trying to finish Atwood’s book forever it seems. It is my first choice.
You’re so very welcome! I hope you can finish Atwood – I just love her! The old movie version of The Handmaid’s Tale is really good!
OMG Hitchhikers!!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 That is one of my all time fav reads. I love Douglas so much. Great TTT!!!
Thanks for that recommendation. It looks like a fun book
A Man Called Ove had me crying so, SO HARD. Seriously.. Keep those tissues close, haha.
I read The Handmaid’s Tale not too long ago either. I liked the story well enough, but the writing just.. wasn’t my cup of tea? It didn’t click with me for some reason so I don’t know if I’ll ever read the sequel..
Thanks Kathy. A great recommendation for Ove. I think that’s how I feel about Atwood’s book. But both of these I am determined to finally read.
I hope you end up enjoying at least Atwood’s book more than I did, haha
I hope you enjoy The Handmaid’s Tale! I’ll be sharing a spoiler-free review of The Testaments on my site in a few days. It was excellent as well.
Thanks Lydia. I loved the series so really do want to read it.
Nice list! I haven’t read any of these but I have a friend who loves Hitchhiker’s Guide. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.
Thanks. I’m hoping this will be the time I get all these read.
I thought The Handmaid’s Tale sounded interesting since I was in high school. Still haven’t read it. I hope you like it!
Thanks Brooke. Certainly hope so!
Ooh yes, a few from my own TBR here (though it’s not fall here in Sydney, we’re barrelling towards summer at breakneck speed!). A very good idea to finish The Handmaid’s Tale before you take on The Testaments – though, I must say, I enjoyed The Testaments even MORE!
Thanks for that recommendation. It will be under my tree at Xmas – so have a couple of months to finish H’s Tale.
