My To Be Read Pile Autumn 2022 Edition

Marking the seasons brings a sense of calmness. We've enjoyed the hazy, lazy days of summer which brought heatwaves and days spent relaxing by the sea. Now is the time for Autumn, probably my favourite season. Autumn is all about cosiness, candles and good cups of tea. I love nestling down for the evening, closing the blinds, and switching on the twinkly lights. The combines have harvested the golden wheat fields, the children are getting ready to go back to school clothed in uniforms too big and there is the hint of a nip in the air and smoky bonfires.

Read my 2022 To Be Read Pile

This Autumn sees us embarking on a very special project namely our new built in book shelves. I can't wait. Our Billy bookcases will carry on serving us upstairs, but now our living room will be even cosier. And reorganising those books - you'd better know I'm excited!!! Which all in all brings us very nicely to my new To Be Read Pile. It is rather enormous. I'm going to divide them into genre and hopefully over the next 6 months read rather a lot of them. Shall we get stuck in?

Crime (14 Books)

Children's Books (3 Books)

Classics (9 Books)

  • Emma by Jane Austen - Shares the dubious honour of being the book that has sat the longest on my To Be Read Pile.
  • The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde - Was delighted when our Classics Reading group chose this 49 page long book.
  • Penguin Book of Christmas Stories ed. by Jessica Harrison - Beautiful edition of short stories.
  • Hard Times by Charles Dickens - One of many Dickens books I am looking forward to reading
  • Great Expectations by Charles Dickens - will be donning my wedding dress to read this
  • The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens - Because you can never have too many Dickens
  • David Copperfield by Charles Dickens - Dickens autobiography of the world famous magician...oh no wait.
  • The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins - Used to hold the title for most atmospheric cover in my humble opinion.
  • Dracula by Bram Stoker - I've reviewed this before on the blog, but was bought the most beautiful edition by my good friend Dannie....who adores Whitby

Fiction (15 Books to read)

And that is the lot, all that is on my To Be Read pile. Can't wait for Autumn and all of that lovely reading!
