It’s hard to believe it’s already fall! I’m more than ready for hot apple cider, sweaters, falling leaves, and all things plaid. (Others in my family are excited about all things pumpkin spice—coffee, popcorn, frosted flakes. 🤢)
As the weather gets cooler (or is supposed to, here in Ohio weather gets a little wacky), not much could be better than curling up with a couple good books and a steaming mug of cider.
I’ve picked out eight books I want to read before December.
The Titanic’s Last Hero by Moody Adams (nonfiction)
You might recognize this one from my 2019 TBR. I haven’t read it yet, but now seems like a good time. An encouraging true story is just what I need!
Jesus Freaks Volume II by dc Talk (nonfiction)
I can’t remember if I ever read the first volume, but I got this one cheap at a used bookstore. It looks really interesting.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
I started re-reading this several weeks ago, but I got distracted by library books. *cough* So, I’m going to pick up where I left off and see how far I get this time.
Ranger’s Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan
My brother read the entire Ranger’s Apprentice series plus the Brotherband books. He really liked them, so I’m going to give it a go. It’s not that long (250ish pages) so it should be a fast read.
Odessa Fremont by Michelle L. Levigne
Yet another book from my previous TBR that I haven’t read. XD This is a steampunk novel. Most steampunk is set in a Victorian-type era, but with steam-powered machines, weapons, dirigibles, etc. The back of this one mentions Abraham Lincoln and time-travel. (Kinda reminds me of this horrible story I wrote years ago about Abe Lincoln building a time machine and accidentally winding up in the 21st century. I think it probably ended with something blowing up. 😂)
The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
I’M SO CLOSE TO THE END OF LOTR! The only thing stopping me is 280 pages.
I don’t expect to actually finish this before winter begins, but if I can get a good start, maybe I can finish it before 2020. XD I’ve been trying to read LotR for over a year now.
The Stolen Princess by Katherine Wilson
I’ve read this book before, but I never finished the series. Of all the books on my TBR, this is the shortest one. I keep talking about how short these books are, but it will take forever to read them. XD
The House on Foster Hill by Jamie Jo Wright
Back in August, I read The Curse of Misty Wayfair. Guys, it was so good! I was afraid of a Scooby-Doo ending, but it wasn’t like that at all!
This book will be a perfect spooky book to read in October. I’m really excited about this one!
If I get to at least starting all of these, it will be amazing. But hey, I love books. And I’m guessing you do too.
Have you read any of these books? Which one would you read first? What is your favorite part about fall?
