Today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top Ten Books On My Fall TBR. I’m doing my 4th Quarter 2015 TBR.
- The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. My October read for the 2015 Birthday Month Reading Challenge hosted by Lois at You, Me, and a Cup of Tea.
- Anne of the Island by L. M. Montgomery. My November read for the same challenge.
- Emma by Jane Austen. My December read for – can you guess?
- The Murders in the Rue Morgue by Edgar Allen Poe. For Halloween!
- Wicked Autumn by G. M. Malliet. Seasonal reading makes me happy. 🙂

Update on my 3rd Quarter TBR:
- Malice at the Palace by Rhys Bowen ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Death Wears a Beauty Mask by Mary Higgins Clark DNF
After some ranting I skimmed the end of the title story – meh. I’m not bothering with the rest of the book.
- The Melody Lingers On by Mary Higgins Clark ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Superfluous Women by Carola Dunn ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George DNF
I really loved the actual bookstore scenes, and the quotes about books were divine, but mostly I was just bored. I felt like if I kept reading this book I would end up in a reading slump. 😦 I’ve since discovered that my library has an eaudio version, so I might try again someday.
- Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Kes by Robin McKinley ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik DNF
This makes me sad. Several people whose opinions on books I trust really enjoyed this one. However, at 50% in I was bored. I didn’t really care about any of the characters, the plot is incredibly rambling, the “romance” is squicky, etc. Sigh.
- The Philosopher Kings by Jo Walton DNF
This is getting ridiculous y’all! I loved The Just City and I was super excited for the sequel, but about halfway through this book (and therefore halfway through the trilogy) the author took a strongly anti-Christian stand. I feel like that was her agenda for the series all along.

I loved The Importance of Being Ernest when I read it this year! It’s so hilarious! Emma is for of course the 200th anniversary of it’s being published!
I’ve seen the play and film versions of Earnest but never read the original. Yes, Emma is for the 200th anniversary and Austen’s birthday. 🙂
The Importance of Being Earnest is great! Really hope you enjoy it. I’m currently re-reading Emma at the moment too! Great list 😀
I’m planning to listen to a full cast audiobook with James Marsters as Jack and I’m super excited about it!
Emma is a re-read for me as well. I missed the 200th anniversary re-reads of P&P and S&S so I want to make sure to re-read the others!
Ugh, I hate when a book leaves me bored – that’s just about the worst thing a book can do to me. I much prefer to actually hate a book – at least then it’s given me something to think about, talk about or write about (this usually makes for an engaging book club meeting!). But a boring book? That’s just depressing! 😦
Uprooted shouldn’t have been boring. It’s fantasy! Exciting things happened, but with no discernible plot, I just kept thinking, “so what?” I never wanted to keep reading. 😦
BEASTLY BONES! You will not be disappointed with that one Selah! Such a great read.
I tried to stay up til midnight to download it, but I was too tired, so I downloaded it and started reading at 6:00 am. 😀

I’m another who enjoyed The Importance of Being Earnest. Very cute. And who can go wrong with Poe for Halloween!
I’m very excited about Earnest. 🙂 I’ve actually decided to read all 3 of Poe’s Dupin stories, because why not?

Your TBR looks really good!! I’m busy reading The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and yesterday I purchased Jane Austen collection – which includes Emma.
I re-read The Picture of Dorian Gray over the summer (it had been at least 15 years since my original reading). Wilde’s prose is gorgeous!
I’m looking forward to All Dressed in White too! My TTT
MHC has been hit or miss for me lately, but I like the characters in the Under Suspicion series and I’m hopeful it will continue to be a strong series.
