day 2, or my autumn reading list

Just a few books I'm itching to read this season. Fall reading is more of a "thing" for me than summer reading, not that I don't read in the summer, but certain books just seem particularly fallish. I also get all nostalgic about re-reading favorites. What's on your reading list?

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee

I have never read this. Or seen the movie. I can't even tell you the basic plot. Also I have a degree in English. This is a problem.

Two-Part Invention - Madeleine L'Engle

This is part of L'Engle's Crosswicks Journal series, which I adore. I haven't read this one yet, but it has a tree with orange leaves on the cover, so I'm guessing it's appropriate.

A Million Little Ways - Emily Freeman

This is a re-read for me. I read it not too long ago, whenever it first came out, but as I was reading it I kept thinking that I needed to re-read it immediately. It's a must, even (especially) if you don't consider yourself an artist.

The Heretics Daughter - Kathleen Kent

My mom bought this for me one Christmas years and years ago and even though I was so excited to read it, I never got around to it for some reason or another. It's about the Salem Witch Trials - perfect for fall.

Anne of the Island - L.M. Montgomery

This is my favorite of the Anne books; the cover is all but totally torn off. It's just perfect for cozy, homebody nights.

The Robe - Lloyd Douglas

This is one of my favorite books of all time. If you haven't read it, you need to. It's a story about the Roman soldier who rolled dice for Jesus' robe and won and was never the same again. Ugh, I can't even tell you how much I ate this up the first time I read it.


  1. Always love your book recommendations. Two Part Invention is on my list too! Intrigued by The Robe and A Million Little Ways.

    Happy reading ;)

  2. I am friends with Kathleen Kent's sister - the author of The Heretic's Daughter. I have had that book since it came out and never did read it! Shame on me.

  3. I wish I could read To Kill a Mockingbird again for the first time--there's nothing quite like discovering new book loves. Maybe I should try The Robe. Currently reading Under the Tuscan Sun, and eyeing The Agony and the Ecstasy for my next read.

  4. I read The Heretic's Daughter in an ARC (I used to work for a book seller). It hurt to give it back. I'm going to try A Million Little Ways and The Robe - thanks for the recommendations!

  5. I haven't read any of these books. They seem interesting!

  6. I LOVE To Kill a Mockingbird! You have to tell me what you think once you've read it.

  7. I'm adding these books to my to-read list. I LOVE To Kill a Mockingbird so I hope you do too! :-)

  8. I have Anne of the Island on my desk at all times!! Love, love that series :) Also, I can't tell you the basic plot of To Kill A Mockingbird either. Oh well.

  9. How have you never read to kill a mockingbird?! It's a great book to re-read each year.


Thanks for reading! I reply to comments via email, so make sure you're not a no-reply blogger! xo
