Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

We all know my TBR is where most books go to linger for a very long time. But if I WERE to read some books this fall, this is what I would be reading. (Sorry for the lack of book covers – time is escaping me more than ever).

1. A Window Opens | Elisabeth Egans

This is on my hold list at the library, so presumably I want to read it, although I can’t remember actually requesting it. It’s a book about a working mom’s attempt to have it all. Apparently.

2. Carry On | Rainbow Rowell

In Fangirl, the main character write Harry Potter-esque fan fiction. This is that fan fiction. Of course I’m reading it.

3. Armada | Ernest Cline

I had a three week old when this book was released, so I hope I can be forgiven for totally missing its release. I haven’t read any reviews but I’ll definitely be listening to the audio version narrated by Wil Wheaton.

4. Why Not Me? | Mindy Kaling

What Mindy Kaling writes, I read.

5. Winter | Marissa Meyer

The final installment in the Lunar Chronicles. Maybe I should get on the wait list now?

6. Need | Joelle Charbonneau

I’m hoping this one is as enjoyable as The Testing.

7. Who Do You Love | Jennifer Weiner

I don’t even know what this one is about, but I love Jennifer Weiner.

8. Geraldine Brooks | The Secret Chord

I am pretty sure that I will be singing Leonard Cohen the entire time I read this one, but that’s a risk I’ll take.

9. My Life on the Road | Gloria Steinem

I can’t imagine this is not a fascinating memoir.

10. Furiously Happy | Jenny Lawson

I mostly want to read this because of the crazy racoon on the cover. True story.


What books are you looking forward to reading this fall?

    A WINDOW OPENS, ARMADA, and THE SECRET CHORD are all in my TBR as well. (Though I’ll be singing the Jeff Buckley version of that song!)

    Great choices! I have many of these on my TBR as well!

    Here is my TTT!

    I’m reading A Window Opens right now, actually. So far, I’m liking it… lots of references to books and book culture, though this working mom’s life is not much like mine so far.

    A nice, well rounded list. I have yet to make my list. I really want to, but work… eh, it’s taking up my time these days.
