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

1. Golden Daughter by Anne Elisabeth Stengl
My favorite series! The next book comes out in November! Can't wait! 

2. The Vow: the true story that inspired the movie by Kim & Krickett Carpenter
While cataloging it for the library I started flipping through it, looks interesting!

3. The Giver by Lois Lowry
Confession: I've never read this book. Yet.

4. The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien
Yeah, this was on a TTT-read-in-2013 list and this years TTT-spring-TBR list... hopefully this season.

5. When I Fall in Love by Susan May Warren
I fell in love with Susan May Warren's Deep Haven series last winter and then started her Christiansen Family series. This is book three in the series.

6. An Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon
Because I enjoyed Dee Henderson's O'Malley series I thought I'd try Irene Hannon's Heroes of Quantico series. Book one certainly kept me turning the pages and I'd love to find out Mark's story.

7. From Slave to Governor by Perry Thomas
I've met the author and my mom really enjoyed this book. But I've never gotten around to reading it. I want to though.

8. The notorious Benedict Arnold : a true story of adventure, heroism, & treachery by Steve Sheinkin
I need to read more non-fiction... And I like American Revolutionary War history. And I really liked the other book by this author that I read. 

9. Thursday's with the Crown by Jessica Day George
I'm reading the first book in the series to 2nd grade and book two ends on a bit of a cliff hanger, so I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next!

10. The Bravest Princess by E.D. Baker
This is also book three in a middle-grade series that I've really enjoyed. A fun twist on classic fairytales all jumbled together. Book #1: Wide Awake Princess

  1. I loved An Eye for an Eye and When I Fall in Love! I hope you love them too! The Silmarillion was pretty good, though a bit long. The Giver I did not enjoy near as well as I was hoping to based on everyone else's opinions. And I really want to read The Vow since I enjoyed the movie! I hope you have a great fall of reading!

    1. I'm on the waiting list for those first two - can't wait to have the chance to read them! I started Silmarillion a while ago and it was interesting but didn't move as quick as LoTR. Hope you get a chance to read the book! I'm hoping I can find the movie after finishing. :-)
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a great list :)
    I read Silmarillion when I was thirteen and definitely didn't understand it. Perhaps it's time for a reread?

    1. Thanks! Yeah, that book seems a bit weighty, I started it last spring but got distracted. Good for you for reading it at 13.
      Thanks for visiting!

  3. Susan's When I Fall in Love is beautiful. I hope you like it, Rina. :)

  4. You do have some good ones on your list. I loved When I Fall in Love. Enjoyed the Simarillion. The Giver was also pretty good.

  5. You haven't read "The Giver"? I really like Lois Lowery and I can see why that book medaled. It's one that I would say lingered after finishing it. I enjoyed "Gathering Blue" more, though, it has some tie-ins with "The Giver." And "The Messenger." I'm not familiar with even the movie "The Vow," what's it about? "An Eye for an Eye" is definitely an attention-grabbing title. Let me know how you like it. And I have started the Silmaril several times. I've given up by now, Danny kept stealing the book from me at the time and I've never gotten back to it.

    1. I'll get around to it one of these days...
      Haven't seen the movie version either, but it's an interesting true story. "An Eye for an Eye" was good, so was the whole series. Maybe the Silmarillion is a book I should give you next. ;-)
