Autumn is a lovely time of year when the often hectic life of summer at least settles into some routine. For some reason, while I generally dislike book lists, I do like making a list for autumn and this year is no different. And thankfully the Top Ten Tuesday topic fits right in so here I go!
1. Moby Dick by Herman Melville ~ for Brona’s fantastic read-along. I’m enjoying this novel much more than I ever expected!!
2. The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco ~ a buddy read in one of my groups. I tried it before and Eco’s portrayal of monks drove me crazy. But I’m giving it another try.
3. Adam Bede by George Eliot- another buddy read in one of my groups. I LOVE George Eliot and have been getting the urge to re-read Middlemarch, but this one first. I can’t wait.
4. The Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton ~ I didn’t participate in the last Classics Club spin but Reese did and I’ve decided to read her book with her. I read The Age of Innocence earlier this year and loved it. I do love Wharton’s writing; you just can’t go wrong reading one of her books!
5. On Friendship by Cicero ~ anyone for a read-along? In October ….?
6. The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm ~ fresh off my C.S. Lewis The Four Loves read-along, I’m thinking of combining Cicero’s book above with this book. Silvia is raring to go … is anyone else interested in reading along?
7. The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton ~ okay, did I mention that I love Wharton? I read this book years ago and was just astounded by her art. Wharton’s amazing crafting of the main character is superb. Would anyone be interested in a read-along of it in November? Please let me know in the comments below!
8. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck ~ another buddy read in a group. I wasn’t that impressed with East of Eden but I’ll give this one a shot.
9. The Good Soldier by Ford Maddox Ford ~ has anyone read this novel? So far I’m having second thoughts ….
10. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens~ fortunately many of the Dickens’ novels that I haven’t read yet are some of his more popular ones. I can’t wait to get acquainted with Pip!
What’s on your TBR list this autumn?
