This week over at the Broke and the Bookish, we're posting lists of the top ten books on our to-be-read list for the autumn. Mine is shorter than usual, since I'm anticipating that school will cut into my pleasure reading time, and I may even have to start doing some school readings on the bus instead of vegging out on my Kindle - Horrors! Anyway, here's my list:
1. A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness: Several people have raved about this series to me. The only quandry that I have is I might need to read the second and third book ASAP, so I hope it doesn't cut into my study time. :)
2. Main Street by Sinclair Lewis: My prof mentioned this book the other day, noting that it's about a librarian. That was enough for me to add it to the list and download to my Kindle.
4. The Chosen by Chaim Potok: This book has been of interest for a while, and I should be able to get it at the library.
5. The Betrayers by David Bezmozgis: Actually, The Betrayers comes out today! I'm waiting to see if I get a gift certificate for my birthday before buying it, but I love Bezmozgis, so this is a must-read.
6. The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez: I saw a blog on this recently, and added it to my TBR.
7. The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro: I have had mixed feelings about Ishiguro; I loved Never Let Me Go, but hated The Unconsoled, so I'm interested to see if this one will be more to my style.
