Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List

 
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
 
 
This week's topic:  Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List
 
I have a ton of books that I want to read this fall but here are a few of the ones that are at the top of the list.
 
1.) Les Miserables by Victor Hugo-This will probably take me the entire fall to read but I am going to get it done before the end of the year.
2.) Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn-I bought this last year but still haven't read it.  I have seen so many bloggers rave about it that I think I should finally make time for it.
3.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss-This is for one of my challenges and I am really curious about it. I know it's long but hopefully I can get to it.
4.) Monster in My Closet by R.L. Naquin-I just bought this book and it looks pretty fun, I can't wait to read it.
5.) A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin-I've missed all the Game of Thrones characters!
6.) 11/22/63 by Stephen King-I have been trying to make time for this since Christmas, I am definitely going to read it this fall.
7.) Tully by Paullina Simons-I loved Paullina Simon's trilogy about Tatiana and Alexander and I really want to check out some of her other books.
8.) Cloudsplitter by Russell Banks-This book sounds so interesting, I hope it will be as good I as it sounds.
9.) City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare-I have seen less than stellar reviews of this book but I still want to see where Clare takes the story.
10.) The Fault in Our Stars by John Green-Why have I not read this yet?!  I feel like everyone has read this but me!

  1. I bought Mistress of Rome last year and have not gotten around to reading it yet either! Hopefully I will get to it soon.

  2. I picked Les Mis for a project in an English class my senior year...I gave up about 30 pages in and just got the abridged version (we were *supposed* to read the actual version of what we picked...but I just didn't have time). We then picked out 3 emotional scenes and wrote about them, and I did, and I got my paper back saying he was excited to see someone pick ones other than the "normal ones" like Cosette at the well...and well, that scene? Not in my abridged version....:D
    I have Les Mis on my Kindle to actually read the whole thing. Should be good bedtime reading!

  3. There are some long ones in there. Everyone loves Victor Hugo, but I've never read Les Miserables or Three Musketeers. I'd also like to make time for the new Stephen King. I've heard good things.

  4. 11/22/63 is fantastic! I'm glad you're going to read it! And I really need to read the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I only watch the show. Great list!

    Here's My Top Ten

  5. I've not read The Fault in our Stars either! In fact it is on my TTT list as well. I have read City of Lost Souls, but I hope to soon. I just bought the book at Target. A girl at the library where I work keeps telling me I have to read it so she can talk to me about it. Happy reading!

  6. Mistress of Rome, 11/22/63 and the Fault in our Stars are on my TBR list too... maybe not my top ten list, but I know I'll get to them before too long!
