Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish


Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR:
Well that’s easy enough, though I doubt I’ll get through them all before winter.

Light in August by William Faulkner
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Money by Martin Amis
American Pastoral by Philip Roth
A Bend in the River by V. S. Naipaul
The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles
Tom Jones by Henry Fielding
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay



  1. We've got Tom Jones in common - I'm hoping to start that this weekend. Read it before and loved it, hoping I still do!

    I read Picnic at Hanging Rock over the summer - really enjoyed it. Have you seen the film? I loved that too, but it's very 70s :)

    I'll be interested to see what you make of Money. I'm not a Martin Amis fan, but I think I quite liked that one. It was London Fields, I think, that I hated!

    1. I won't be getting to Tom Jones for a while, but I recently bought a very nice copy. http://100greatestnovelsofalltimequest.blogspot.com/2015/09/top-ten-tuesday-september-22-2015.html
      I'll be sure to compare notes with you once I get to it.

    1. P&P certainly got a lot of love today. Unfortunately, I've seen a movie version. I'd prefer to read it without the perceptions from the movie. I'll check your list now.

  3. Pride and Prejudice made my list as well! I've been planning to read it forever! Happy reading! :)

  4. The Sheltering Sky is one of my all-time favorite novels; I look forward to what you will have to say about it.

    1. I'm looking forward to reading it. I read it many years ago, but I think I was too immature to really appreciate it.
