Top Ten Tuesday: Let's Get the Fall Reading Party Started, Or, My Fall TBR List (Part Two)


I always love it when we do seasonal book lists for TTT, so I'm excited for today's topic—Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List. I was so eager for it, in fact, that I started it last week, posting the first part of my list here. (Or just scroll down since I only seem to be able to manage one post a week these days!) Today, you get the second half of my list of books I still need to read to fulfill prompts for my 2023 reading challenges. I can't wait to see what you all will be reading this Fall!

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Click on over there and give her some love, won't you? While you're there, add a link to your own TTT list of Fall reads so I can check it out.

Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List (Part Two) 


1. Scene of the Climb by Kate Dyer-Seeley—This cozy mystery is set in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge, a lush scenic area in Oregon and Washington. It's a region I know well since that's where I grew up. I've been meaning to read this series opener for awhile now since (1) I enjoy a good cozy, (2) it's by one of my favorite cozy writers (Kate Dyer-Seeley is Ellie Alexander's real name), and (3) it's set in a place I love. 

The story revolves around an out-of-work journalist who bluffs her way into writing for an extreme sports magazine (even though she's anything but athletic). Pretending to be a seasoned mountain climber for a story is difficult enough, but when the reporter witnesses a suspicious death, she finds herself impersonating Nancy Drew as well.



2. Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree—Even though this is not at all the type of book I usually read, it is so universally loved that not reading it is giving me a serious case of FOMO! For the few of you who haven't read it, it's about an orc who's tired of doing battle for her daily bread. She decides to retire her sword and open the first coffee shop ever seen in her city (where, by the way, no one even knows what coffee is). Abundant obstacles stand in the way of her business plan's success, but that doesn't stop her from working tirelessly to make her dreams come true.

3. Famous in a Small Town by Viola Shipman—Eighty-year-old Mary Jackson has run the Very Cherry General Store in quaint Good Hart, Michigan, for most of her life. As the last of the Jackson women, she's afraid she might have to do the unthinkable and turn the place over to (gulp!) a man. Then, Becky Thatcher comes to town. Becky never expected to start over at age 40, but it's beginning to look as if fate has other plans for her...

The Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge—A Book By An Author Using a Pseudonym of the Opposite Gender


4. The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees by Meredith May—This non-fiction title is about a girl who is left lonely and adrift by a chaotic home life. She is taken in by her grandfather, an eccentric beekeeper, who helps her find herself and her "people" by teaching her the art of beekeeping and honey-making.

The Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge—A Memoir or Biography About Someone With an Unusual Hobby


5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Mass—High fantasy is not a genre you see featured much here at BBB because it's just not my thing. One great feature of reading challenges is that they force me out of my reading comfort zones. So, I'm going to finally read a Maas book. She's such a popular author that it will be fun for me to give her a go. I think. 

Wait! Does Legends & Lattes count as a high fantasy? I'm a little confused by what is and what is not a high fantasy...anyone know??

Anyway, this popular novel is the first in a YA romantasy series about a huntress who is dragged into the vicious faerie underworld after killing a wolf in the woods. As she comes to know the beast who has captured her, she realizes that neither he nor his world is quite what they seem. Something is not quite right in faerie land and she might be the only one who can save it...

The 52 Club Reading Challenge—High Fantasy AND the Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge—A Book About Fairies 


6. Off the Grid by Tess Sharpe—This middle-grade adventure is the first installment in a series starring Maisie Lockwood, a young character from the Jurassic Park movies. I'm not sure what the plot of this novel is, but I know it's exciting and features dinosaurs. Again, not my usual thing, but it fulfills several of my reading challenge prompts, so I'm in.

PopSugar Reading Challenge—A Book Based on a Popular Movie AND the Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge—A Book With Dinosaurs in It 


7. Solito by Javier Zamora—I've been meaning to read this immigration memoir ever since it came out last year. It's the author's story about the harrowing 3,000-mile journey he made from his small hometown in El Salvador through Guatemala and Mexico, into the United States where he planned to reunite with the parents he hardly remembered. Traveling with a group of strangers with only a paid coyote to guide them, the 9-year-old experienced every kind of terror on his long, perilous journey.



8. Hour Glass by Michelle Rene—This western is set in the lawless town of Deadwood, South Dakota, where two orphaned children find a collection of colorful individuals who unexpectedly become family.

Literary Escapes Reading Challenge—South Dakota AND the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge


9. All the Small Poems and Fourteen More by Valerie Worth—Poetry is another genre I tend to avoid. In general, I find poems too abstract and confusing to really enjoy. I figure poetry written for children should be short and easy to understand, right?



10. The Sewing Machine by Natalie Fergie—This is a novel about family secrets. It's told over several generations, all of which are connected through an heirloom sewing machine.

There you go, ten more books on my Fall TBR list. It's an eclectic list for me! What do you think? Have you read any of these? Which titles are you planning to read during this season? I'd truly love to know. Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog. I also reply to comments left here.

Happy TTT!

    1. ACOTAR seems to be almost universally loved, but that doesn't mean anything. There are plenty of books "everyone" loved and I didn't. No problem with that!

    1. How interesting! I know nothing at all about sewing, but I always like a family secrets novel, especially ones that connect different generations through one object. THE SEWING MACHINE gets good reviews, so I'm hopeful that it will be one of those hidden gems that is so fun to find.

    1. OFF THE GRID is a quick, exciting read. You could read it in a matter of hours. It's nothing special, really, but I think kids will like it. The characters are likable, there's lots of action, and, of course, dinosaurs! I bought a copy of the book since I couldn't find it anywhere but Amazon. I'm happy to send it to you if you want it.

  15. Scene of the Climb sounds fascinating to me especially since I don't know the area! Legends & Lattes was great--and it does count as high fantasy, which typically just has to be a self-contained fantasy world, as opposed to portal fantasy, where characters come to a fantasy world from the "real world."

    1. The Columbia River Gorge is beautiful. Lush and rugged. People flock there to hike, bicycle, windsurf, go whitewater rafting, etc. Unfortunately, it can be dangerous too. If you're familiar with The Piano Guys, the Gorge is where Jon Schmidt's daughter fell to her death.

      Thanks for clarifying on what a high fantasy is. Now, I can use LEGENDS & LATTES for two different prompts. Yay! I love it when I can double up, especially at the end of the year when I'm racing to finish all of my challenges.

  20. Legends & Lattes absolutely fits the "cozy mystery", at least to me. I wouldn't say it's like...murder mystery or anything like that, but there's definitely a "What's going to happen with this?" feeling. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!!

  24. I like the way your choices are all over the map when it comes, in particular, to genres. That's a great way to keep yourself from getting into a reading rut. I'm particularly interested in Solo because I missed hearing about that one before now. I've often wondered how these children survive the journey to this country without being maimed or murdered, or at the very least, emotionally scarred for the rest of their lives.

    1. Reading challenges help me get outside my reading comfort zones, which is a good thing, I think. I'll always stick mostly to mystery/thriller novels and historical fiction (as I always have), but it's good to change things up now and then!

      I think immigration stories like SOLITO are really important to read. They humanize the innocent people who are so desperate to get over the border that they will do literally anything to get here. Border control is such a hot issue, especially here in Arizona, that I think it's crucial we have stories like Zamora's to help us see what's really going on and to understand the toll these journeys exact from the people who undertake them.

  26. This might be a strange statement to make in a TTT post comment, but I was trying really hard to avoid adding any books to my TBR today (well, yesterday now), because it's grown exponentially during the last few TTT's. But I can't pass up Off the Grid, being the mega Jurassic Park fan that I am.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ha ha. I totally understand! TTT is the best/worst thing that ever happened to my TBR list :)

      OFF THE GRID was a quick, easy read. I couldn't remember much about the characters and their back stories so I had to do some Googling. The story presumes you already know all that stuff, which you probably would have being a big Jurassic Park fan. I hope you like it when you read it.

  27. These sound like some great picks! I tend to prefer poetry for children because it often focuses on the way the words sound... though that could also just be the poets I pick. Poetry really should have subgenres, but I haven't seen them mentioned.

    I wouldn't call Legends & Lattes a cozy mystery, really, but I would call it a cozy fantasy. Your mileage may vary, though; you might find more to the mystery there than I did.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Good point! Children's poetry seems more entertaining and vivid too. I've never enjoyed poetry, but poems written for children definitely seem more approachable to me.

      Cozy fantasy seems to be a new-ish genre. Or is it something I'm only just hearing about (not being a big fantasy reader)?

  28. Off the Grid, Off the Grid! What a fun little book and a particular joy if you loved the film's found-family aspect. And thanks for the reminder that I need to update the ridiculously and unnecessarily obscure description on Goodreads with the actual summary from the back of the book already. At least one of them should be fixed soon.

    1. Are you a GR librarian?? Someone definitely needs to update the summary. I mean, you know from the cover and the fact that it's part of the Jurassic Park franchise that it's going to be a dinosaur adventure story, but more details definitely would have been nice. And I do love the found-family aspect in the movie. It's a big theme in this novel as well.

  39. The Sewing Machine sounds amazing. There’s an antique sewing machine that has been passed down in my family for a few generations. I’m sadly terrible at sewing, though, so we made sure it went to someone who liked and was good at that hobby. :)

    Thank you for stopping by Long and Short Review’s post this week!

    1. Oh, that's awesome! I love family heirlooms. Sewing is not something I'm good at either, so I totally understand. I'm glad someone who does love it is getting to use such an awesome heirloom.

  41. Legends and Lattes was a lot of fun. I hadn't heard of Off the Grid before but that sounds great. I can imagine my 7yo loving it (if it ever gets translated that is).

    1. I think any kid who loves dinosaur adventure stories would like OFF THE GRID. I can't imagine it getting translated, but I'll cross my fingers for you!

  42. I do think poetry for children can be a great way into poetry.

Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
