This week's Top Ten Tuesday on the Broke and the Bookish is top ten books on your fall to-read list. I know I did one of these back in spring for Top Ten Tuesday, but I haven't gone back to check it since I wrote it. Fingers crossed I managed to read some of my choices. And another set of fingers crossed that I didn't roll any choices over to this list for fall!
TOP TEN TUESDAY:
Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Read List
1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
2. On the Road by Jack Kerouac
These are the books that I will be reading. For sure. No doubts (well, unless they're horrible and I decide to quit mid-way). Both are on hold at the library and once they arrive, they'll on deck.
3. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
4. The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
5. After You'd Gone by Maggie O'Farrell
These are the three I'm most excited for. J.K. Rowling's for obvious reasons (her first book post-Potter! Possibly the most anticipated book in a decade! Is she able to write an entertaining adult novel?!? Who knows!). But Murakami and O'Farrell too. I've read a bit by them (Murakami-1, O'Farrell-2) but nowhere near enough. Can't wait to get my hands on them.
The Movie Stars
6. Life of Pi by Yann Martel
7. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
If not for their upcoming movie counterparts, these two wouldn't be on the top of my list. In fact, I wouldn't have even heard of Cloud Atlas. But in preparation for the movies, I hope to read them both soon.
8. Arcadia by Lauren Groff
9. The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty
10. Sacré Bleu: A Comedy d'Art by Christopher Moore
Released within the last year and garnering wide acclaim, all three have gotten rave reviews from friends and family I trust. Hope they live up to the hype!
The Odd Ones Out
11. The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell
12. Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
Not only are they the only nonfiction, they're also falling off the edge of this meant to include only 10 list. It is Top Ten Tuesday, after all. But I couldn't keep them off!
What's on your fall to-read list? And are you excited for fall? Please say yes! I can't wait for chilly days, pulling out the jeans and scarves and jackets, leaves falling, baking with pumpkin, and of course, curling up with a good book :)
