TTT: Hopes for Fall Reading
The delightful bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish host this weekly list challenge. If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great booAk blogs to follow head on over and check them out!
The topic this week is Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR List.
Here is what came to mind immediately--upcoming or fairly newish releases, starting, appropriately enough...
Release by Patrick Ness. I was so bummed when the date I thought it would be out turned out to be the UK date. Now it's actually coming out in the US, and I have more empathy for how the rest of the world feels waiting for US books to come out locally.
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera. I totally impulse-bought this for myself the other night, and am debating letting a student read it first. But what if they spoil it?
One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake is also coming out--today? tomorrow? Very soon. I am feeling SO SMUG about having not read book one until just recently, although the wait for book 3 will be tough.
I'm excited to re-read Refugee by Alan Gratz with my students.
I really want to spend some time reading Passionate Readers, by one of my teacher-heroes, Pernille Ripp.
As soon as one of my students finishes Posted by John David Anderson, I'm hoping to get a chance at it. My daughter's class is doing it as a read-aloud, and I'd like to be able to chat about it with her.
I also want to read Laurn Wolk's Beyond the Bright Sea and Spencer Quinn's Woof, two books she's really liked lately. I love that she is introducing me to some books.
Speaking of reading with my kid, we're looking forward to the fall release of the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, although we won't actually read them until after she gets it from me for Christmas.
And a year after I chose it to read next, I STILL haven't cracked the covers on A Gentleman in Moscow, so I really hope I get to it this fall.
Middle grade, fantasy, professional reading, literary fiction--I'm looking forward to an eclectic fall!
