Fall Reading List

Fall Reading List

For two weeks now, I’ve been checking out everyone’s reading lists and it’s been driving me crazy because I’ve not had the chance to come up with my own! This is by far my favorite time of year. I love everything about it, except this pesky heat. Tsk tsk.

To make things right in the world, here’s my list of what I hope/plan to read between now and say…December. No particular order because hey, I never know what mood I’ll be in until I am living in it.

  1. Salem’s Lot by Stephen King (re-read, read-along)
  2. Avenue of Mysteries by John Irving (Gah!! love Irving)
  3. All the Stars in the Heavens by Adriana Trigiani
  4. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (October read-along hosted by Bookfoolery)
  5. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami (re-reading with a friend because it’s Murakami and that’s what you do)
  6. The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant (book club)
  7. The Quick by Lauren Owen (read-along)
  8. Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Clegg
  9. Summer of Night by Dan Simmons
  10. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
  11. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
  12. Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  13. Mobile Library by David Whitehouse
  14. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert

Considering at least three of these are chunksters, this is an ambitious list and may spill over into Christmas break.  So. Be. It. I am taking a lot of time off over the holidays and cannot wait!

Up Next: Books That I’m Excited About

I’m doing fairly well with my review copies. I’ve got a handful to read between now and this summer but overall, I try to be choosy with what I request or accept so my list of immediate “to-reads” is not that long.

These are the books that I am most excited about! I didn’t list Murakami’s Wind/Pinball because I already gushed about that one. I can’t skip an opportunity to mention it here again, though.

Okay, next up on my list:

The Last Bookaneer

The Last Leaves Falling

The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell, June 2, 2015

Finders Keepers

(Book 2 of the Bill Hodges trilogy!)

The Summer of Good Intentions
