Top Ten Tuesday: Books on Our Fall TBR

This list was a tricky one—somehow, we are both getting to the ends of our TBR shelves! But we do have a handful of book we’re looking forward to reading this fall. Thanks as always to That Arts Reader Girl for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

Pete’s Five

Shadows of Evil by Brandon Sanderson — I loved The Alloy of Law, and I can’t wait to jump back into the Mistborn world with the second Wax and Wayne book.

Beloved by Toni Morrison — I have been floored by every Morrison book I’ve read so far, and this is one of her more famous works. I’m sure it’s going to be a powerful read.

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson — Malazan Book of the Fallen is one fantasy series I’ve heard a lot about but haven’t ventured into yet. I know this book is supposed to be quite dense, but I have a notepad ready!

Shopgirl by Steve Martin — This book was a birthday gift from my recently passed grandfather, and I can’t wait to dig in and see if I can find a bit of him in it.

There but for the by Ali Smith — Yet another author who has yet to disappoint. I don’t even know what this one is about, since I don’t read the jacket flaps of Ali Smith books anymore. Why would I need to?


Indiana’s Five

Shirley by Charlotte Bronte — I was so happy to find a copy of this at a used book store in Seattle. It seems like I’m always on the hunt for other Charlotte Bronte books and I finally found this one in impeccable condition.

The Brink of Darkness by Jeff Giles — The follow-up to The Edge of Everything is one that I’ve been waiting for since I read the last pages of the first book. Very excited to find out what’s next for our cast of characters.

The Imposters by Scott Westerfeld — Although it’s not the follow-up to Afterworlds (which desperately needs to be written), I’m looking forward to going back into the Uglies world and exploring it a bit more. I’ve been reading books set in this world since I was about 11 years old and it’s been fun to see how my perspective has changed on it over the years.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott — My mom and aunts are named after characters from this classic and though I’ve seen the movie and read a condensed version when I was a kid, I’ve never actually taken the time to read the original. Finally going to dive into it!

Lullabies by Lang Leav — I rarely read poetry so this one should be an interesting diversion from everything else I’m reading.

  1. Shopgirl – there was a movie by the same name with Steve Martin, is that movie based on this book? I adored the movie, and would love to read the book! I don’t remember a ton about the movie except that I liked it a lot.

    Gardens of the Moon – I should really try some of Erikson’s fantasy. the only book of his i’ve read is Willful Child, which is sort of a satire of Star Trek, it was hilarious!

    1. Yep, Steve Martin wrote the book and the screenplay. I’ll probably try to watch the movie after I finish reading this one — I’ll let you know if it’s any good! You’re already one step ahead of me when it comes to Erikson — this will be my first!
