Top Ten Tuesdays: Fall (Autumn) TBR

So today's post is going to be something a little different. I've come across lots of these posts on my travels through the blogosphere, and it seems like such a fun way to add a bit of fun to your blog posts while interacting with other bloggers in a new way.

So I've decided to take part in the Top Ten Tuesdays meme, hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. (Excitement!)

I almost certainly won't be doing one of these every week, but some of the lists coming up look so much fun that I'll definitely be doing at least some!

Anyway, this week's topic is:

Top Ten Books On My Fall To-Be-Read list

(Though, of course, as I'm a Brit I would say 'autumn TBR list' instead, but hey!)

1. Wide Sargasso Sea - by Jean Rhys

2. The Catcher in the Rye - by J.D. Salinger

3. The Unbearable Lightness of Being - by Milan Kundera

4. The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - by Junot Diaz

5. The Joy Luck Club - by Amy Tan

6. Manalive - by G.K. Chesterton

7. The Color Purple - by Alice Walker

8. Brideshead Revisited - by Evelyn Waugh

9. Jonah's Gourd Vine - by Zora Neale Hurston

10. To Kill a Mockingbird - by Harper Lee

You can see some of those in this snap of my uni bookshelf.

Of course, I'll be insanely lucky to get anywhere near that many books before next summer since I'm also supposed to be a final year student with essays and stuff... But we'll see how we get on! I definitely want to read at least the first three, so that can be my more realistic, slightly less impossible TBR list for this 'fall' (it's autumn you guys!).

What do you think of the books I've chosen? What are the top ten books on your TBR list for this season? Do you participate in Top Ten Tuesdays? Let me know in the comments.


  1. Hi Rachel, I am newbie to Top 10 Tuesday also. I love the mix of classics and world lit. Mine is more focused on classic mystery, contemporary fiction and 11/22/63, my first attempt at Stephen King.

    I noticed some books set in other countries and hope you will join us for our Travel the World in Books reading challenge that you can start and end anytime. Set your own goals and link up your reviews by continent.

    1. Hi Tanya, thanks for your comment! I love the Top Ten Tuesdays idea, and your choices sound like fun too. Good luck with the Stephen King attempt! I've only read The Shining and I really enjoyed it despite not being a horror fan, so I hope you have a similarly positive experience.

      Your Travel the World idea sounds really fun actually, I'd love to participate! I'll be checking out your blog to see how to get involved.

      Thanks for stopping by!
