I'm excited to once again participate in Callapidder Days Fall into Reading challenge. I think this is my third year...nope, I just went and checked. It's my FOURTH year. Wow. As always the best part of the challenge is seeing what others are reading. In fact, the very first year I participated, I kept seeing "The Hunger Games" on peoples' lists. Checked it out at the library (there wasn't even a wait...I was ahead of the curve on that one) and devoured it. So, go HERE to check out all the great reading lists. Get inspired and get reading.
So, what am I going to read this fall? I have so many books I would like to get to, but it seems like this fall is just packed full. No leisurely Saturdays on the horizon for reading...hmmmm. So, what's it going to be?
Let's start with the non-fiction. I think this list is a little ambitious, but it does include some easier reads, i.e., Let's Pretend This Never Happened.
1. The Praying Life by Paul Miller
2. The Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas (reading this with my husband, but not nearly often enough)
3. Give them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson
4. The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer (reading this in my small group)
5. Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin
6. No Easy Day by Mark Owen
7. Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson
8. Dinner: A Love Story by Jenny Rosenstrach
9. I Will Carry You by Angie Smith (I just have a few chapters left to finish in this one)
10. Mended by Angie Smith
The fiction list is much shorter and almost entirely dependent on when books become available at the library. I will add a couple book club books to it as they come about.
11. Tumbleweeds by Leila Meacham
12. Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
13. Where We Belong by Emily Giffin
14. The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
15. Dare Me by Meg Abbott
I really wanted to end the list at 15, because that seems like a good number. But I am just started a new book on Friday.
16. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks
and for good measure, our October book club selection (it will be a re-read for me)
17. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Happy Reading! I would love to hear what's on your list.
