Top Ten Tuesday - My Fall TBR

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic from The Broke and the Bookish is Fall TBR.  I LOVE this topic because I get to think about the books I want to read in whichever season.  I'm not that great at actually reading them but I do enjoy picking out books for this list!

1.  The Circular Staircase by Mary Roberts Rinehart - I love Agatha Christie and the rest of the classic British mystery authors but I sometimes forget about the classic mystery writers over here and Mary Roberts Rinehart was one of the best.  I read this one years and years ago but remember nothing about it so I'm looking forward to reading it again.

2.  Faithful by Alice Hoffman - Several people have recommended this one to me (LaLa I'm looking at you!) and I've been wanting to try Alice Hoffman for years so I figure this will be the one!

3.  Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas - This is a reread for me and one of my favorite contemporary series by Kleypas.  I don't do much rereading but I love it and always try to schedule one in.  Whether or not it happens has nothing to do with it!

4.  Ghost Night by Heather Graham - This is the 2nd book in a romantic suspense trilogy that's full of ghosts and set in Key West.  I read the first one and loved it and listened to the first 2 chapters of the 3rd book and loved it so I really need to read book #2 so I can go finish up book 3!

5.  The Hollow by Ransom Riggs - I read Miss Peregrine several years ago and really enjoyed it but even though it was a super fast read I haven't gone back and continued the story.  Part of the problem is that I really want to read them in print because of the photographs which means I have to go get a physical copy of the book either from the store or the library and it always slips my mind.

6.  Cold as Ice by Julie Mulhern - This is one of my absolute favorite cozy mystery series and one of the few I'm actually caught up on!

7.  Death Overdue by Allison Brook - I love coming in at the beginning of a series and this cozy mystery series involves a main character who is a librarian and that library just happens to have a ghost!

8.  Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper - I've read one Molly Harper book several years ago and always meant to read more so I jumped at the chance to review this one!

9.  Sleep Like a Baby by Charlaine Harris - The Aurora Teagarden series is a kind of cozy mystery series that Harris has recently restarted and I'm so excited because it was my favorite by her! I'm really excited to see what Aurora is up to now.

10. Dead of Winter by Wendy Corsi Staub - I read this previous book in this series about modern day Lily Dale and really enjoyed it.  I've read a little about the history of Lily Dale and it's a fascinating place so I'm looking forward to revisiting it.

What books do you want to read this fall?

  2. Sweet Tea and Sympathy! I am definitely excited to read that one. I forgot to mention that in my post. It's been ages since I've read a Molly Harper book.

  3. I need to pick up Faithful. I've read Practical Magic and am looking forward to her newest book, which is a prequel to that one, but I've heard the MC in Faithful runs a dog rescue so that piqued my curiosity. Great list!

  4. I love the cover of Cold as Ice. I didn't know it was a series. So now I have to start hunting down book one.

  5. It's been awhile since I've read a cozy mystery, the Killer Librarian series sounds good! I just added the first one to my TBR list :)

  7. The Circular Staircase just sounds like an old-time mystery! And I need to read Mulher's fifth book since Cold as Ice is coming soon. I love how fast these are coming out!

  10. Great list and you've read a lot of series I need to start. I'm starting Mulher's series soon and I also want to read Sweet Tea & Sympathy.

  12. I've never read Alice Hoffman either. Let's see what you think, and maybe I'll give her a try. I have her newest here.

  13. So many of these sound good! I haven't even started two of your favorite series, Aurora Teagarden and the Mulhern series. Death Overdue sounds especially good. I will have to keep my eye out for that one. Thank you for sharing, Katherine!

  16. I really enjoyed reading your list - particularly Sleep Like a Baby as I have enjoyed the Aurora Teagarden series and hadn't realised it has been started back up again by Harris. Thank you for sharing, Katherine:)

  17. I love the Miss Peregrine books! I agree, though, they definitely need to be read in print. The creepy photographs add a lot to the reading experience.

    I'm intrigued by the Charlaine Harris series. I've never read anything by her, and this series sounds more to my liking than her vampire (I think?) books.

  18. I need to finish Ransom Riggs series myself. I have all three books, but will probably have to reread the first before tackling the rest. Hope you enjoy all the books on your TBR!

  19. I am so relieved you liked Faithful!

    I have the first two Miss Peregrine's in paperback. Hopefully I can get to them next year.

    Totally off subject... remember when you were asking for suggestions for trip locations and I mentioned Boston and that fact that you can easily day trip to Salem from there? Well, I just found out there is a short trip cruise ship that goes to Salem from Boston and back. I was reading an article about the children's library they have on the boat. :)

  20. Great list! I love doing re-reads and am hoping to re-read some Kleypas books via audio soon. I am very curious about the Molly Harper book as well. I hope you enjoy all of these.

  21. We've only got one book in common on our lists this week: Death Overdue. Looks like a lot of fun, doesn't it? So do your other choices, both old and new. Enjoy!
