|The Broke and the Bookish|
1. The Mysteries of Udolpho, by Ann Radcliffe
I'm reading this as part of RIP, R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril, and I'm glad I chose it because it's perfect for the cooler weather and I've been wanting to read it for years.
2. Cod, by Mark Kurlansky
It's not often that I willingly read non-fiction (slowly working on that), but I've discovered that books about food are a clear favourite. I simply gobble them up, pardon the pun. I read Kurlansky's book Salt last year, so I'm giving a chance to his book about my favourite fish to eat.
3. Three Cups of Tea, by Greg Mortenson and Oliver David Relin
Look, another non-fiction book! This one has been on my radar for awhile now, and I'm finally forcing myself to give it a try.
4. Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, by Amanda Grange
Seems like a perfectly delicious read for October.
5. Me and Mr. Darcy, by Alexandra Potter
6. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon
Been sitting on my headboard shelf for far too long so it's time to read it.
7. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, edited by Robert L. Mack
I think I have a slight theme to my fall reads here...spooky and scary. Anyway, Sweeney Todd is one of my favourite musicals of all time and I've got this book that I really, really should read.
8. The Last Dickens, by Matthew Pearl
I adored The Dante Club, and this book promises to be just as intense.
9. The Yugo: The Rise and Fall of the Worst Car in History, by Jason Vuic
I'm including this one as a nod to my husband, who has been literally shoving this book in my face at least once every couple of months for the last two years and telling me I need to read it. The excerpts he has read to me are downright hilarious, and I do love cars. It's just the whole "I don't read non-fiction" monster rearing its ugly head again.
So there you have it, my top ten books on my fall to-read list. I have a small stack of other books from the library, which will get read, but I didn't really consider them to be top ten. What books do you have on your fall reading list?
