The Short Stack

This is probably the easiest Top Ten I’ve ever done. This week, The Broke and The Bookish ask, what books top our fall reading lists? I have a ton of books on my to-be-read list. What I try to do is keep a “short stack”, a small pile of books, usually diverse in genre or topic. Here are the books on my short list; hopefully, I’ll get to all of them this fall.

1. Moral Disorder, by Margaret Atwood
2. Everything’s Eventual, by Stephen King
3. Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Season 8, Volumes 4-6: Time of Your Life, Predators and Prey, and Retreat, by Joss Whedon, etc.
4. The Thousand Orcs, by R.A. Salvatore
5. Mini Shopaholic, by Sophie Kinsella
6. The Silver Chair, by C.S. Lewis
7. The Flying Troutmans, by Miriam Toews
8. Dracula, by Bram Stoker
9. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson
10. Pride and Prejudiced and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, by Steve Hockensmith

I did have to add a couple to round it out to ten, but the books I included will likely be added once other books in my short stack are read.

What are you reading this fall?


  1. Buffy! I've been meaning to pick one of them up, but I can't figure out if I will like it or if it will ruin the memory of the TV series.. Have you read any other before?
    I read Dracula about 6 months ago and was a bit underwhelmed. It wasn't as creepy as I'd imagined.
    Thanks for stopping by @ the Broke and the Bookish!

    Mini-Shopaholic is a fun read! I've really enjoyed that whole series so far

  3. Dracula is one of my favourite books, hope you enjoy it.

    And the Shopaholic series is one of my guilty pleasures!

  4. Dracula should be a good Halloween read. I would really like to reread it sometime. I am rereading Frankenstein this fall.

    Come check out my list for the week here.

  5. Ah, classics. Enjoy Dracula and Jeckle and Hyde!

    As for me, I'm working on EVIL PARADISES right now, and plan to read DIRT: THE EROSION OF CIVILIZATION next.
