  1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who has long lists. I hope you enjoy all of your fall reads! Here's my Top Ten Tuesday post.

  2. Ooh The Princess Bride would be fun, seems like! And that's not bad at all for your summer list. My reading this summer was terrible!

  3. Born a Crime on audio is fabulous; read by Trevor Noah.

    I'm heartbroken over the untimely passing of RBG, even though we knew she was very ill, I can't seem to focus on print books right now, just audio for some reason.

  4. I'm eager to read Vanishing Half. Hopefully I will be able to pick it up from the library today. I'm not sure I can handle Sixth Extinction or Stable Genius right now.

  5. You did well on your summer TBR list! I love making seasonal TBR lists, but I rarely actually stick to them. It's just fun thinking about what I MIGHT want to read, even if I never actually do it. LOL.

    Happy TTT!

  6. So many good books on both lists. Happy fall reading!

  7. Princess Bride is wonderful. Hope you enjoy it!

    My post .

  8. My list is whatever is on my Kindle-Book Club books and pleasure reading. (usually mysteries)

    1. Several of these are book club selections. I can't always read whatever I want to read...book club keeps me focused.

  9. You have some great books on your list! I still need to read Clap When You Land and The Vanishing Half. The Princess Bride will be perfect for the fall. Happy Reading!

  10. Great list! I'm looking forward to reading The Vanishing Half and Clap When You Land soon. Hope you'll enjoy all of these!

  11. It looks like you did a great job on your summer TBR. I hope this fall you do just as well!

  12. You did do well on your summer reading list! :D

  13. I've never read Princess Bride, but I'd like too. Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  14. Clap When You Land is one of my favorites of the year, I hope you enjoy!

  15. Clap When You Land is outstanding on audio. Happy reading!

  16. Great list. Happy reading. I love a long list.

  17. I've read 3 of your Fall books: Vanishing Half, Born a Crime, and Clap When You Land. They are all so different and all so good! I think you have a good Fall reading coming up.
