Anyway, I love these top tens for the season, so I always make it a point to participate in these lists! I find it to be a great motivator as I move through the seasons to have something to refer to. :)
Without further ado, the books I am hoping to read this fall.
- The remaining Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling: I am participating in Jenna's readalong that goes through December 15. I've already read the two school titles, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, and the first two titles. I am also about 100 pages from the end in Prisoner of Azkaban...so this little challenge is going well. :) I actually think I'll finish the series by the end of September!
- Clarissa by Samuel Richardson: I started this back in April during a failed readalong with Adam and Jillian, and I set it aside for a few months. I've been craving getting back into it, so I think I might make it a goal to finish it by the end of the year.
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo: This is one that I should be reading for a readalong, but I haven't even started it yet! With the movie coming out, I really want to make time for it.
- The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: Yet another title I want to read before the movie comes out! I haven't read this in ages, and it is one of the titles I've been "saving" for a while.
- The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf: I really want to get back into some Woolf titles, and since I have a few left on my 250 list, I should probably get on that. I started this one last spring and I keep meaning to return to it!
- Mythology by Edith Hamilton: Technically, I have to finish this since I am using it as a book for my mythology class, but since we are using only some portions of it, I've skipped around quite a bit. I really want to finish it, so I'll be setting aside some time to do that.
- The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton: I've been sinking into a lot of comfort reads recently, and while I wouldn't really classify this book as "comforting," I really want to reread it. I just love it and it has been so long since I've read it...well, I want to read it. :)
- Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan: I think this would be a great read during the fall months, and since I am reading a lot of Puritan selections with my sophomores this fall, this would be an interesting read for me on the side.
- The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins: I purposely saved this one for the fall months since the mystery aspect would be great for the RIP Challenge (which I haven't officially signed up for yet). I loved The Woman in White, so I have high hopes.
- Lady Audley's Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon: This is another Victorian I wanted to save for the fall. Jillian and I have been talking about reading it together and have plans for a little buddy review at the end of October. :) It should be a good time!
