Fall Reading List

I am so excited about this reading challenge hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days! Mainly for all the new books I'll find out about.

I forced myself to finish Not Buying it: My Year Without Shopping by Judith Levine this week before I could start any new books. I had 50 pages left and it was sitting there taunting me, so I finished it! It was interesting but, because it wasn't what I expected, I didn't enjoy as much as I thought I would, probably why I had a hard time finishing it. The other book that was going to be on my list was The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch, but I finished that on Sunday. So, here is the revised list.

1.
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski because it's Oprah's new book club selection. Finished 10/12

2.
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer my teenager told me, "Mom, you have to read this."Finished 10/21

3. & 4. 16 Lighthouse Road &
204 Rosewood Lane (Cedar Cove Series) by Debbie Macomber just because they're fun. Finished #3 on 10/27 #4 on 12/17

5.
We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates another Oprah book club. Finished 12/3

6.
My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult recommened by my friend Laurie. Finished 11/7

It's a bit short, but I wanted to leave room for additions. Just in case I find something I just have to read on someone else's list.

Happy reading!

Good luck with your list! :) Happy Reading!

I thought My Sister's Keeper was a good one. And I have Twilight sitting on my bookshelf, though it didn't quite make my fall list. It'll have to be a "backup book," I guess. :)

Thanks for being part of the challenge!

I agree with your teenager. I LOVED Twilight! Sister's Keeper was pretty good too. I haven't read the others yet. Have fun!

My Sister's Keeper is a great book! I am reading The Last Lecture right now.. it is so good! I am also reading Twilight this Fall. Looks like we like a lot of the same books :-)

I am not familiar with any of those authors. I keep seeing Debbie Macomber's name pop up -- I need to read one of her books.

I came for the Friday Fave Five and got to see your reading list instead. I hope you enjoy Jodi Picoult, I've heard good things about her books and have added her to my ever growing to-be-read list. :)

Willow said...

I came for Fave Five too but I enjoyed reading your book list. Will I ever have time to read all the books I want?

you totally have to read twilight, and then just think the two of you can go see the movie together in 50days.

Happy Reading!
