Five Books I Want to Read: Fall 2017

I’ve been doing this seasonal list of Top Books I’d Like to Get To for a while now. This time I didn’t do so well with getting through my choices.

For Summer I picked 5 books and I finished two of them and I’m currently reading a third. Clearly I was little overambitious regarding my summer reading

The two I finished are:

The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I let the Sherlock Holmes books drop off my radar a couple of years ago. It was good to get back to them and finally read this classic.

Unmentionable: The Victorian Lady’s Guide to Sex, Marriage, and Manners by Therese O’Neill
This was fun and interesting. I listened to the audio edition narrated by Betsy Foldes Meiman.

The one I’m currently reading:

The Romanovs 1613-1918 by Simon Sebag Montefiore
This history of all the Romanov rulers of Russia is quite interesting.

This Friday is the Autumn Equinox so it’s time to pick my Fall possibilities that I want to read before the Winter Solstice on September 22nd

The Five Books I Want to Read This Fall

I’m going to start with the two I picked for summer but didn’t get to because I still want to read both of them.

 

The Blackhouse by Peter May

The Blackhouse by Peter May

More and more people keep telling me that The Blackhouse by Peter May and the rest of the trilogy are excellent. I need to read it.

 

A Second Chance by Jodi Taylor

A Second Chance by Jodi Taylor

The Chronicles of St. Mary’s series by Jodi Taylor is fun time travel adventure. I need to read the next one up for me, Second Chance.

 

Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard

Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard

This book has been on my TBR list since it was released. It’s about time I read it. I have both print and audio out from the library but I haven’t decided which format I’ll read yet.

 

Divided in Death by J.D. Robb narrated by Susan Ericksen

Divided in Death by J.D. Robb narrated by Susan Ericksen

Once I started listening to the audio editions of this series I knew I’d never go back to the print editions. I need to read this next one for me before I let too much time pass with this series.

 

The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith

There was so much buzz about this one when it was released that I didn’t want anything to do with it. Now that there’s been a television adaptation starring Tom Burke (who I loved in The Musketeers), I decided it’s time to finally read it. HBO has the US rights to the television series but no US premiere date has been set yet

 

What books are you looking forward to reading in the next few months?
