Top Ten Tuesday – Books on My Fall 2021 To-Read List (21 Sept, 2021)
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week a different topic is posted inviting the participants to come up with a list of ten things to do with the topic.
This week’s topic is .Books on My Fall 2021 To-read List.’ These are all books I haven’t read yet. I have started some of them, but really need to concentrate on getting them read. I’ll see how I get on anyway.
- The Island of the Women – George Mackay Brown. This collection of stories looks like one that I’ll be able to get through quite easily. I always enjoy his stories anyway.
- Moominpappa at Sea – Tove Jansson. I’ve been slowly working my way through all the Moomin books. There’s only one more to go after this one. I read some of these over 40 years ago and it’s been good to revisit them.
- The Bookshop at Water’s End – Patti Callahan Henry. I don’t know much about this one, but it’s been unread on my shelf for too long. It looks interesting, so hopefully I’ll enjoy it.
- French Exit – Patrick deWitt. I’ve really enjoyed his other books, so I’m looking forward to this one.
- Practicing the Way of Jesus – Mark Scandrette. I got this as a book club read a few years ago, but I had to drop out at the time and never got it read. I think it’ll be a decent read and hopefully will be challenging too.
- Mere Christians: Inspiring Stories of Encounters with C.S. Lewis – edited by Mary Anne Phemister and Andrew Lazo. I started this book in the early summer. It’s one of those books that you can dip in and out of from time to time, so I’ll just keep chipping away at it.
- Nocturnes – Kazuo Ishiguro. I always enjoy reading Ishiguro, so I’m hoping this collection of stories will be enjoyable too.
- Calypso – David Sedaris. I just got this collection of Sedaris stories a couple of weeks ago, but I want to get it started soon.
- How the Bible Actually Works – Peter Enns. I always enjoy listening to Enns on The Bible for Normal People podcast, so I’m looking forward to reading this. Hopefully it’s quite thought provoking.
- A Promised Land – Barack Obama. I read about a third of this before the summer, so it’s time to get back to it. It’s been a fairly fascinating read so far.
