This week’s topic is-
Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List
Seeing as the weather here is 100% autumnal, this is a perfect topic-going down to 38 degrees tonight-brrrr……
1. The End of the Affair by Graham Greene
It is one of those novels I have always wanted to read, but never have. I am determined to do it!
2. The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom
Love this author, even though he usually makes me sad 😦
3. Seduction-A Novel of Suspense
I love suspense!
4. Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
This book sounds great- disturbing, but great.
5. Touchstone by Laurie R King
I read Bones of Paris, never realizing it was a sequel-so now I want to read the first!
6. We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver
I had’t heard of this until the movie came out not too long ago.
7. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
Again, one of the books that has been on my TBR list for way too long- going to tackle it this fall.
8. Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead
The other books are pretty serious, so I want a little comic relief!
9. The Secret History by Donna Tart
I have been hearing that this is a book I MUST read, so I am going for it!
10. The Stand by Stephen King
Ashamed to say, this will be my first Stephen King- very excited!!
That’s what I am looking forward to reading in the coming months-what about you?
Please leave a comment-I love hearing from you!!!
I really liked Touchstone but it felt really slow for some reason. King’s writing style and knowledge of the time period though is superb. Here’s my TTT

Great list- especially like the “silly list” 🙂
I loved Bones of Paris, so I really want to read Touchstone-thanks for the heads up! Hope you are enjoying your spring!!
I haven’t read ‘The Stand’ or ‘East of ‘Eden’ either. The others I have never heard of (oh books… there are so many of you…)
You can see my list here if you want.
Great list! I know-I feel like there are just too many to keep track of- which is why i started the blog 🙂
Mitch Albom’s The First Phone Call From Heaven is on my TBR list too!
I can’t wait to read it!
East of Eden is one of my all time favorite classic! The Stand is awesome as well, and there are some books on your list that are unknown to me. I hope you’ll enjoy all of them!
This is a fantastic list. The Stand and The Secret History are two of my all-time favorites. The End of the Affair is on my Classics Club list and I’m hearing really good things about Matthew Quick’s new book. Enjoy your reading!
I love The Secret History. I have Seating Arrangements on my e-reader, it’s one I’ve heard good things about. I hope you enjoy them all 🙂
I can’t wait to get started on this list!
I hope you enjoy The Stand. One of the few King’s that I still haven’t read. It’s a huge book so I keep delaying. I just bought a new copy of The Shining to read in anticipation of Dr. Sleep being published later this month.
I hope you enjoy your fall reads!
And yes it is sooooo cold in NJ right now! I’m contemplating switching the space heater on in my office. My feet are freezing!
Maybe I should try The Shining instead? I don’t want to DNF. I went for a run at Chubb Park around 7:30- OH MY it was freezing! Gonna break out the gloves!
I don’t think you’ll DNF I hear so many great things about The Stand and it is the fave of many King fans. Look forward to hearing what you think!
A 7.30 run! Are you crazy? Lol 🙂
Your list has so many books I want to read: The End of the Affair, Seating Arrangements, The Secret History, Touchstone…great list, happy reading! 🙂
Enjoy your reading. Seduction sounds interesting. Love the cover!
Right? I want a necklace like that!!
Ooooo East of Eden! I was SUPRISED at how much I really enjoyed that one. I thought it would be a drag, but it was kind of unputdownable. And yay for The Stand! Probably didn’t need to be a billion pages long, but it was good 🙂
I want to read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock, too! The End of the Affair and Seduction sound interesting! I tried to read The Secret History once and couldn’t get into it, but I’d like to try it again someday. King is a bit hit-or-miss for me, and I didn’t LOVE The Stand, but I hope you enjoy it and all the books on your list!
I haven’t read any of them, but they all look great.
East of Eden is also in my list since always (not in my fall list, though hehe). I’ve loved other books by Steinbeck.

We Need to Talk About Kevin is on my shelf, as well. It seems like a great, disturbing fall read!
I have only read one Stephen King book, IT. His books are just so long. Eventually I want to read more.

I guess I’m behind — just catching up on Tuesday posts today! This is a terrific list! I read The Stand so many years ago, and was just having a Stephen King conversation (it happens!) that reminded me I should reread this one. It’s intense and amazing. There’s a lot here to love (East of Eden! The Secret History!), and a few books I need to check out as well!
