Fall! Pumpkins! Changing of Leaves! It’s still in the 80s/90s here, but I’m hopeful that soon we will have deliciously cool weather. And hopefully not devilishly frigid winter. It’s Tuesday, which means that I have a list for you! I love lists. Especially bookish lists. The gals at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list our Top Ten Books on our Fall TBR.
Spoiler Alert – I probably will only read a handful of these books by the time Christmas rolls around. Maybe more. Looking back at my Spring and Summer TBR lists, some of these are repeats and most of my lists for those posts are still half-read. Ah well.
Top Ten Books to Read This Fall
1. Drood by Dan Simmons – The plan is to post details on the readalong tomorrow…but if I miss tomorrow, go ahead and grab your books for an October/November readalong.
2. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury – Because what screams autumn more than this deliciously spooky tale? (I’ll be listening as part of the Something Wicked Readalong Hosted by Ti of Book Chatter and Sandy of You’ve Gotta Read This!)
3. American Gods by Neil Gaiman – Ugh. Will I ever actually read this book? I promise I want to!
4. Bag of Bones by Stephen King – People keep recommending this one to me. Les–I’m looking at you! (who’s up for a readalong in December? Because nothing says Merry Christmas like a King readalong?)
5. Night Film by Marisha Pessl – Seedy, dark. Not quite a spring book, I’m thinking.
6. Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield – I keep hearing this one termed as a ghost story (and yes, I have heard it’s a letdown but I’m willing to take the risk).
7. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams - Ok, maybe not a fall book but I’ve just recently learned how short this one is…so why not.
8. Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – Gaiman, Graveyeards, perfect for the upcoming Dewey’s Readathon. Can’t wait!
9. The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly – Another that I’ve had on my shelf for too long. Though I can’t remember if this one is better suited to RIP or Once Upon a Time.
10. Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen – As in Mrs. Edgar Allan Poe.
If you’ve been living under a book blogging rock, Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings is hosting the ninth edition of RIP (Readers Imbibing Peril) Event. Many of these books will count towards RIP and I made the lovely images above before I remembered that I have Dracula on audio and would love to listen to that. So, hopefully I can make room for Dracula as well. And already mentioned is the Something Wicked This Way Comes readalong in October. Lots of fun fall events coming up!
What is on your fall reading list?
