“For Man, Autumn Is A Time Of Harvest, Of Gathering Together…” (Edwin Teale)

What an appropriate quote from Edwin Teale to feature as the title for my Fall Reading List!  I spend a great deal of time compiling each seasonal reading list for myself to share with all of my readers.  These chosen titles I’ve assembled are books which hopefully fill the various genres for adult and young adult booklovers.  This list likens to farmers in their fields ready to reap the benefits of their spring and summer efforts.  I pour over countless reviews to decide which books I’m craving to read and optimistically worthy of your choice as well!  I’ve added the three books from the Matthew Corbett Series by author Robert McCammon to read over the next few months.  I fell in love with his book, Boy’s Life, many years ago.  I’ve read nothing but praises for this series from McCammonIf I Stay by Gayle Forman is quite popular with Young Adults.  The sequel, Where She Went, will be out in April 2011 so I recommend reading If I Stay – as you can see I have it on this list.  Also, I’m looking forward to reading Book 2 from The Caster Chronicles, entitled, Beautiful Darkness, by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.  Are you a fan of the musical, Chicago?  Then you surely won’t want to miss, The Girls of Murder City: Fame, Lust, and the Beautiful Killers Who Inspired Chicago, by Douglas Perry

Thank you to all who have visited my book blog over last several months.  I have truly appreciated the compliments and words of encouragement from so many of you.  The favorable remarks and the expressions of approval have given me the confidence to continue sharing book lists, my thoughts and my reviews of books with you the reader!

Well, enough of my ramblings – take a glimpse at my Autumn Reads……

    Kathy- The Chicago book will be my pick for book club next time around. And I didn’t see The Postmistress on your list. Check it out. I’m reading it right now and loving it.

    • Great – I’ve read some wonderful reviews!
      I know. I do have a copy of the book and I originally was going to put it on my summer reading list, but alas, I had to delete some and that was one of them. Since you’re recommending it though I’ll keep it in mind for another list.
      Thanks!
      Kathy

  5. I’ll be reading ROOM soon and can’t wait. My 12 year old just read If I Stay and really liked it. Great list!

    • Hi Beth!
      Now that I’ve completed my very first webinar last night, I can now get back to my reviews. The webinar went well!! What are you thinking of reading from the list? I’ve received alot of emails from friends as to the ones they’ve read so far.
      Best,
      Kathy
