TTT: What Books Are You Falling For This Autumn?


It's Tuesday and you know what that means ... it's time for my favorite weekly bookish meme.  I haven't participated in a few weeks, but I love this week's easy-breezy topic.  I'm guaranteed to get some great reading recommendations while looking at people's lists for Top Ten Books on My Fall To-Be-Read List.  Want to join in the fun?  Click on over to The Broke and the Bookish and link yourself up.

Here's my list:


1.  Doll Bones by Holly Black—I recently made my kids watch an old X-Files episode about a creepy doll.  This looks like the perfect follow-up read aloud.  Hee hee.



2.  Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult—I can't wait for this one to come out in a few weeks.  I love Picoult and this novel about a woman trying to find the mother who abandoned her as a child sounds excellent.



3.  Sweet Unrest by Lisa Maxwell—This YA ghost story, which comes out on October 8, revolves around a girl who starts having odd dreams after moving into an old Louisiana plantation home.  Sounds like a good Halloween read!



4.  Gathering Blue, Messenger and Son by Lois Lowry—Yeah, yeah, I know this is technically three novels, but I recently purchased the Giver quartet in the lovely omnibus edition you see above, so I'm counting them as one book.



5.  UnDivided by Neal Shusterman—Man, I better start playing the lottery so I can afford to buy all the great books that are coming out in October!  This is the final book in what has been a thoroughly compelling and always thought-provoking series.


6.  Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd—I didn't love, love, love The Madman's Daughter, but I'm interested enough to give the sequel a whirl.



7.  Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson—Woodson always draws me in with her stories about family, friendship, ethnicity, etc.  This one is a collection of poetry about her experiences as an African-American girl growing up during the 1960s and 1970s.  It looks excellent.


8.  We Hear the Dead by Dianne K. Salerni—This one just looks fun.


9.  Contaminated by Em Garner—I'm reading this novel about zombie rehabilitation for Carl's R.I.P. Reading Challenge.  It looks interesting.


10.  Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith—I've heard a lot about this thriller and figure it's about time I got around to reading it.

What about you?  What books are you planning to read this Fall?  Which should I add to my list?
