Books at the top of my Fall TBR


1. The Marriage Plot by Jeffery Eugenides: I would kill for a ARC of this one, but since I'm not that cool I am counting down the days until October 11th when Eugenides latest is released.

2. Untouchable by Scott O'Connor: This was a gift from a friend and since I read this review I've been waiting until Fall to pick it up. It sounds like it will be a good fit for the RIP challenge - my favorite challenge of the year.

3. 11/2/63: A Novel by Stephen King: I will admit, I have never read any Stephen King. I've been told The Dark Tower series is one of his best and I hope to get to it someday, but in the meantime I've got my eye on his new release. But I'll have to wait until November 8th.

4. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: I don't think it's a coincidence that this one will be released on my birthday, September 13th - ok it's very much a coincidence. But either way, I can't help but be excited about this one; circuses, magicians, greed and love sounds promising to me.

5. Them by Joyce Carol Oates: I bought this one in July and it's still sitting on my TBR. I'm thinking Fall will be the season to read it.

6. Night by Elie Weisel: Another dark and horrific book, only this one isn't fiction. Night is about a teenager who struggles to survive in a Nazi death camp.

7. The Wife by Meg Wolitzer: I can't remember where I read this review for this one, but it sounded amazing and I bought it a few weeks ago. A tale of "witty disillusionment," this one also sounds quite promising.

8. Surfacing by Margaret Atwood: I've only read one Atwood so far this year, which is somewhat out of character for me. This was has been looking at my from my TBR for a few months now and I can't wait to tackle it.

9. Packing for Mars by Mary Roach: I enjoyed Stiff very much, and I've heard Roach's latest is just as interesting.

10. The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris: This is another that has been hanging out on my nightstand waiting to be read. I enjoyed Then We Came To An End and this one sounds even more interesting.

  1. i am dying for 11/2/63, the marriage plot & the night circus too. they may go on my fall reading list for next year, though, unless i break down and add them to my already ridiculous e-book collection. (i never want to know how much money i've spent on kindle books that i've forgotten i own the second i transfer them to the reader.)

  7. I've read The Dark Tower and other books by King. I'm also eager for the release of 11/2/63.

    I read Surfacing, some time ago. It's a great novel. I hope you enjoy it.

  8. Ooh, I have an Oates book and an Atwood book on my list too! I am *dying* to read The Marriage Plot too, and I actually completely forgot about Stephen King's new book (and whoever told you to read The Dark Tower series is completely right, it is AWESOME!) but that's probably because I'm reading them all in order and probably won't get round to it until at least next year anyway!

  11. I'll have to check out the new Eugenides and King novels. You should definitely read Night. Very intense. Wiesel is a beautiful writer.

  13. The Unnamed is also on my TBR for this fall. I read Then We Came To The End this summer during my office job and loved it. Ferris is an underrated writer, he's so good!
