Despite the fact that good Fall TV is back, I have a nice line-up of books for my Fall Reading List to share with you. I have to tell you, the combination of having a baby who goes to bed at 7 pm, sleeps through the night with nary a peep, and the complete and total lack of any interesting summer television (with the obvious exception of ABC's "Bachelor in Paradise") made for some major summer reading.
While I ended up swapping out some of the books on my Summer Reading List, I read a bunch. I was reminded why I worked for that degree in English, Speech, and Linguistics (my university wouldn't let me major in TV watching; I tried). Reading is fun again, now that I have a little time to do it in the evenings. Please do leave me titles on YOUR list in the comments section!
Here's what's on my list for this fall....
Yes, Please - Amy Poehler
Crossing my fingers that this one is as funny as Tina Fey's Bossy Pants. I'm not usually a fan of memoir, but I love it when they are humorous.
The Shoemaker's Wife- Adriana Irigiani
This is the pick for this month's book club. I like historical fiction, so I'm looking forward to this one. And, seriously, how fab is that red dress?
After Her- Joyce Maynard
Just started this one. I think it's supposed to be murdery, suspensey. I:m not feeling it so far, but I'll keep reading.
Bitter is the New Black - Jen Lancaster
Another memoir, but again with the funny. I've been told this is hilarious, so I better read it fast before it's due back at the library.
Dark Aemelia: A Novel of Shakespeare's Dark Lady - Sally O'Reilly
This one intrigued me. Aemelia Bassano lived in Elizabethan England and was the first woman in England to publish a volume of poetry.
One Lavender Ribbon - Heather Burch
Restoring an old house, old letters, flashbacks...what more could I want?
I have a few others in my library basket that I'm hoping to get to, but this list should keep me busy for awhile.
Have you read any of these? What's on your list? Do share in the comments section!
