This weeks topic? Top Ten Books On Your Fall TBR List

So, there’s a pretty good chance I’m going to cheat with a couple of these because I’ve been frantically reading in an attempt to get ahead of things. Chances are, a few of these I’ve read, but that’s okay. Right? I’m still looking forward to having everyone else read them so we can chat about them…now! So here goes, My Fall Must-Read TBR List:

1. Apple Cake: A Recipe for Love by Julie Paschkis – This is a picture book I featured not too long ago and it’s all mine! Yes, I love picture books just as much as my kiddos, and who wouldn’t with this one? It’s a mix of Sarah Addison Allen’s The Girl Who Chased the Moon with gorgeous illustrations and a great story. Love this!

2. The Christmas Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood and Illustrated by Renata Liwska – We’ve reviewed Deborah Underwood’s fantastic book, The Loud Book, and even interviewed her so this was high on the list when I initially heard about it. Not only is our family huge fans of the series, but it’s Christmas centered! You can’t go wrong!

3. Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs and Let’s Go for a Drive! by Mo Willems – This one is a no brainer. If you haven’t read a Mo Willems book, you should. I don’t care how old you are, these books will have you in stitches and have been on my wishlist since I heard they were coming out.

4. Railroad Hank by Lisa Moser and Illustrated by Benji Davies – This is one I’ve already read, and loved. The story is fantastic and both of my kiddos crack up through the entire reading. What I love most though, are the illustrations. Benji Davies is also the illustrator of another book we love, Winston Was Worried, as well as behind a favorite series of Littlebug’s, Bizzy Bear. It’s exciting to see his work pop up all over the place and we can’t wait for more!

5. Lovabye Dragon by Barbara Joosse and Illustrated by Randy Cecil – Again, what can I say? I love great illustrations and this is one I’m in love with. Oh, and my kiddos love it too! A beautiful story as well. We’ll have a review up soon!

6. Ask The Passengers by A.S. King – After I finished reading Everybody Sees the Ants I couldn’t grab hold of A.S. King’s other books quickly enough. Then I discovered Ask The Passengers was coming up and I couldn’t resist requesting it. Gorgeous storytelling. If you haven’t read Please Ignore Vera Dietz, The Dust of 100 Dogs or Everybody Sees the Ants yet I’d tell you to pick those up while you wait for this one. You won’t regret it!

7. Pickle: The (Formerly) Anonymous Prank Club of Fountain Point Middle School by Kim Baker and Illustrated by Tim Probert – I met the author of this book, Kim Baker, at ALA this last June and not only is she fabulous but she’s also one of the few who managed to escape my photographer (aka my hubby with my camera). Ever since then I’ve been dying to read Kim’s new book and it’s out soon, so the wait is almost over!

8. Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill and Illustrated by Iacopo Bruno – Fairy tales, dragons, adventure and princesses. Do I need to say more?

9. Paradise by Joanna Nadin – This sounds perfectly eerie for the upcoming season. I love the description and the cover. Also, I love that there hasn’t been much hype over this one. Sometimes too much attention can detract from the story and I’m thinking this one will pack a punch.

10. Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio – I’ve read Sarah’s last two novels, The Violets of March and The Bungalow, and fell completely in love with her storytelling. This is a novel all for me and I cannot wait to dive into it…hopefully with a blackberry pie in tow.

Now, your turn! What books are you eagerly anticipating this Fall?
