Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl, is by far one of my favorite, and most consistently done, over the course of three different blogs, memes.
Each week, a prompt for TTT inspires bloggers to create lists based on that week’s topic.
This Tuesday’s topic asks bloggers to produce lists of our fall TBR lists!
My number one priority this fall is to read MYSTERIES! I’m talking cozies, of course, in addition to some Agatha Christie – finally – I’m planning to toss in Sherlock Holmes, among others. I have been lucky enough to be chosen as a member of The Mystery Crew! I am so excited to work with my current co-bloggers, Cass and Jackie!
Another series I’m excited about diving into is the Knit and Nibble mysteries by Peggy Ehrhart. I ended up requesting, and receiving, the fourth book in the series, so I’m starting at number one, Murder She Knit!
I am in the process of reading Alison Weir’s, The Six Wives of Henry VIII. I adore historical nonfiction and this is an amazingly informative and interesting work thus far. It’s pretty heavy reading, but with the subject matter, I will enjoy it regardless. I was making decent progress through the book, when the library sucked it back into its stacks – so, I’m waiting for it to become available to borrow again.
Dan Brown’s Origin is another library book I want to finish up soon. I’m about 60% through the story, which is really good, but slower reading for me. I adore Brown’s Robert Langdon series and this, the fifth Langdon book is proving to be an amazing read.
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant is a tale I’ve been interested in reading for a long time. I’m looking forward to it moving from my ‘holds’ list onto my ‘loans’ from the library list soon. I feel that The Red Tent will have been worth the wait.
I’ve been dying to start Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. I adored the TV series based on the books and just have to read them. I hope I enjoy the first installment enough to continue with the book series, but I really can’t imagine not loving it!
I am a lover of The Bachelor franchise and really lament not tuning in until about half the seasons were past. But, I am now a proud fan! I’m super excited to read Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America’s Favorite Guilty Pleasure by Amy Kaufman, a real member of Bachelor Nation, who has been banned from Bachelor events due to her book’s candor.
Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines is another book that was sucked of my library loans shelf, as its rental expired before I could finish it. I was really enjoying the story and then BAM, I’m waiting for it again. My Goodreads reflects that I’ve only finished 11% of the book, but I really think I was further along than that! LOL!
Baby-sitters on Board by Ann M. Martin is the first Super Special of the iconic series and I’m so excited to read it again! I’ve been on a major BSC kick over the past year or so; I’m in love with the Graphix editions of the original series!
Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis is another book I’m looking forward to. Honestly, I’m a bit iffy on reading Hollis’ first book, as it’s not classified in a genre I normally read. However, I’m hoping my branching out into another section of the library will be a good thing!
For a bit more light reading, I’m planning to blow through The Vile Village, Lemony Snicket’s seventh installment in his Series of Unfortunate Events. I love this series and figure this book will add some lightness to my reading!
