When It Gets Chilly, I’ll Be Curling Up With… The Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Read List

This week’s topic from The Broke and The Bookish was easy… and yet, in a way hard…  Here are the top ten books on my fall reading list.

1.  Insurgent, by Veronica Roth
2.  Undead Reckoning, by Mike Slabon
3.  Everything’s Eventual, by Stephen King
4.  A Thousand Orcs, by R.A. Salvatore
5.  Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley
6.  Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare
7.  The Girl Who Played With Fire, by Steig Larsson
8.  Bodily Harm, by Margaret Atwood
9.  Binu and the Great Wall, by Su Tong
10. Night of the Living Trekkies, by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall

Some of these books have been on my list since the Spring…even Winter…  I just can’t seem to read ten books a season (that’s 40 books a year… totally not happening).  So, though I’ve wanted to read them for ages, they just keep getting pushed back.  Plus, I’m easily distracted by other books and influenced by my mood.  There are some great, new/different books on the fall list though.  I’m saving Frankenstein for October.

What’s on your Fall list?



    Bwah hah, I'd totally meant to read that and it slipped under the radar. Will you be reading around October? I think I must purchase it as a Halloween read.

    1. I've had the book for over a year! I don't know why I haven't read it yet. It feels like it ought to be an October read.

  2. Yay Frankenstein! I hope you enjoy it.

    1. I read it about ten or eleven years ago and have been meaning to re-read it for ages. I think this October will be a good time.

  3. Great list!! Insurgent - yes! Clockwork Angel - yes!! And a classic.. Frankenstein! :) I remember we had that on our curriculum in grade 12 but ran out of time to read it.. but I took it home to read anyway.. :D

    Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I actually think I'll start Insurgent in just a few days.

      I read Frankenstein about ten or eleven years ago. I remember loving it. I hope I feel that way again when October rolls around.
