Today is the last day of summer. The autumnal equinox is tomorrow and the days are already getting shorter. When late afternoons and evenings are darker and cooler, I tend to read more. This fall I'm looking forward to several new releases and a couple of classics, too.
Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, asks us to share our fall TBR (to be read) list this week. As always, this is today's list... next week, or even tomorrow, it might look a little different.
Did You Ever Had a Family by Bill Clegg
Longlisted for both the Man Booker prize and National Book Award. I borrowed this from the library and will get started as soon as I finish The Story of the Lost Child.
Purity by Jonathan Franzen
People either love him or hate him. He's one of my favorites... I can't help myself.
Infinite Home by Kathleen Alcott
Recommend by several trusted bloggers, I'm on the library hold list for this one.
Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
This book is a getting A LOT of buzz right now, and the author is practically a local.
After You by Jojo Moyes
Me Before You destroyed me (in a good way) and I must know what happens next!
The Small House at Allington by Anthony Trollope
The fifth book of our #6Barsets project, I'll begin this as a read/listen combination within the next week or two.
The Last Chronicle of Barset by Anthony Trollope
The last book in the Barsetshire series is on tap for November. Finishing will be bittersweet, I'm sure.
by Jessica Fechtor
Because Audrey recently shared a passage, and it was wonderful.
The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien (audio)
I've been meaning to read this for years and recently downloaded the audio.
The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young (audio)
Included because it is reminiscent of Dollbaby by Laura Lane McNeal, which I loved. Both novels are narrated by January LaVoy... and she is amazing.
What books are you looking forward to this fall?
