What fall releases are on your TBR list?


  1. Excellent list, Lindsey! I definitely want to read Us and Station Eleven, and possibly some of these others as well. Another new release I am really looking forward to is Jane Smiley's Some Luck.

    As far as the Marilynne Robinson . . . I didn't read her previous novels about the characters. I don't know if I should start with Lila, or with one of the previous books.

    1. Thanks Leila! I will have to look up Some Luck.

      Hmm...As far as I can tell, they are different characters who are all connected to each other so you will probably see some of the same events from different points of view.

  2. I've been seeing Belzhar everywhere this last month!! I think it's a sign that I should read it.

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

  3. I've never heard of any of these novels although "The Book of Strange New Things" seems intriguing as a piece of sci-fi.

    1. I'm always fascinated by stories where faith and science intersect, so I'm really looking forward to that one.

  4. Never read any of these or anything by Meg Wolizter. Lots of people have been mentioning her so I think I need to remedy that.

    1. I've really enjoyed several of her books, so I am psyched she has another one out!

  5. Good choices-- some I have put on my wishlist. Station Eleven, The Wonder of All Things and the sequel to The Lost. Nice!

    1. Thanks Rita! I think fall reading is going to be good. :)

  6. I've just added more books to my wish list. So, thanks... I think?

  7. Belzhar sounds really good, I am so excited!

    1. Me too! Have you read Wolitzer before? Which one is your favorite?

  8. Some really lovely covers and some that I've been hearing great things about. I keep seeing Station Eleven everywhere!

    1. I don't read a lot of apocalyptic stories, but the traveling troupe of actors aspect caught my attention. And I've heard so many good things about the author!

  9. I'm excited to see The Underground Girls of Kabul on your list! It was a great book.
