Top Ten on my Fall TBR

Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR

All Quiet on the Western Front - 
Erich Maria Remarque
I feel like I read this in elementary school.  Can it be possible?  We shall find out.

Dracula - Bram Stoker
Probably most anticipated this fall.

Howard's End - E. M. Foster

The Story of My Experiments with Truth - Gandhi

In Cold Blood - Capote

The Song of the Lark - Willa Cather
Cannot. Get. To. This. Fast. Enough!

Sense and Sensibility - Jane Austen
It's about time I read another Austen.  Poor woman has been totally neglected.  For shame!

A Christmas Carol - Charles Dickens
Every year, by December, my children beg me to read this to them; and you know I love it.

I LOVE Dracula - just started re-reading it! Hope you enjoy it :)

I'm going to get around to reading All Quiet on the Western Front at some point this year too.

Ruth said...

I am enjoying it right now. : )

Ruth said...

Oh, excellent. I am reading it right now and am totally intrigued.

Ruth said...

Nice. I can't wait to see if I've read this one before.

Jillian said...

Ah! Such a great list!! I really want to reread the Dickens too. It would be my fourth read. I also really, really want to read Remarque and Gandhi & Capote -- maybe not this fall. Sense and Sensibility is my favorite by Austen. I hope you love it. :)

Cleo said...

I haven't read Dracula yet, if you can believe it! I might join you.

Sigh!...... Gandhi ....... I just don't seem to be able to be inspired by this one. I think Hitler made me numb. ;-)

Ruth said...

It encourages me that S&S is your favorite. I am a little intimidated to begin another Austen b/c it is a commitment.

Ruth said...

Well, I'm half way through Dracula. I am reading only a chapter a night. (I cannot believe how life has sucked my reading time from me.)

So, do you think you'll read Gandhi at all, or should I go on without you? I think Gandhi is the last WEM title I will read for this year.

Cleo said...

Yes, I'll be joining you with Gandhi. Do you have some Christmas-ish reads planned or do you just need the time to do other life stuff? I completely sympathize; life has absolutely devoured my reading time. I can't believe that I made it through Mein Kampf. I don't know how I did it!

Ruth said...

Just A Christmas Carol. I'm glad I have a lighter load toward the end of my year b/c, as I said, life is taking up my reading time. I'll just need more time to read what I've planned.

I can't wait to get to Willa Cather's books. I've been encouraged by what you've said about them. I'll add this one to my list. BTW, Sense and Sensibility was my favorite Austen until I read Persuasion.

Ruth said...

I love them (Cather's stories), I can't wait to hurry up and get to this one.

I am encouraged by what others have been saying about S&S.

Jillian said...

Oh, it's such a lovely book. It's a "read this on a rainy day & feel cozy" sort of book. I think. :) I feel like you're going to like Elinor.

I read All Quiet... when I was like 15 and did not like it at all. I think that I was expecting it to be about WWII, though, and mostly disappointed to learn it was about WWI instead. I'll be interested in reading your review!

Dracula is fascinating, and how weird is this for timing? I dreamed about vampires and Abraham Van Helsing last night. And Colin Firth was playing VH. It was a pretty cool dream.

In Cold Blood is riveting. Oh my. I still think of it every time I use evaporated or condensed milk out of a can.

Ruth said...

I knew All Quiet was about WWI, but that's it.

Great dream. Colin Firth as VH? Hmmm.

And In Cold Blood I know very little about, and nothing about milk. This is going to be very odd.

Hamlette (Rachel) said...

The canned milk is a very small detail in In Cold Blood, something one of the killers talks about from his childhood. But it stuck with me.
