Hi guys! Today’s post is going to be my FALL TBR! (TBR = to be read, aka a list of books I want to read soon.) I post my seasonal TBR lists as a way to get excited about all the books I want to read over the coming months. And with the September sunshine glowing and the pumpkin spice making it’s triumphant return, it’s safe to say fall vibes are upon us!
So, without further ado, let’s jump into the TBR…
Own Voices Romance –
You Had Me at Hola by Alexis Daria
This new release romance was sent to me by The Book Drop.
Book Club Pick –
The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel
A story about a ponzi scheme, written by the author of Station Eleven.
Time Travel –
11/22/63 by Stephen King
A whopper at 849 pages but I’ve heard it’s one of King’s very best.
Literary Fiction –
The Dutch House by Ann Patchett
I’m a sucker for family dramas told over decades and this one spans five!
New Release –
Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi
After Homegoing, Gyasi’s books are an auto-buy for me! Picked this one up as soon as it came out.
Contemporary Classic –
Brazil by John Updike
I’ve been wanting to read a book set in Brazil and choosing one by a Pulitzer Prize-winning author felt like a safe pick.
Young Adult Sci-Fi –
Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Continuing on with the second book in this series.
Saw the Movie –
Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman
I finally saw this movie recently and loved it. Excited to revisit the story (and Italian villa).
I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya
The book itself is tiny and cute but the story packs a punch as it explores a trans artist’s relationship with masculinity.
True Crime –
Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann
This one sounds fascinating and is an important piece of American history.
Over to you! Have you read any of these books? What did you think? And I’d love for you to share some of the books you plan on reading this fall in the comments below!
P.S. I read a total of 22 books from June – August and read everything from my Summer TBR except for The Aviator’s Wife.
