Fall Reading List

Winter is officially here, I think. I don't go by official dates, just months. So I'm here to share my Fall reading list, completed during September, October, and November. All books, except for a few written by my friends and some of the kids books I read, have been reviewed. You can read the reviews on my other blog, link in the sidebar.

My friend's book about the Man in the Moon
I read a lot of books by my friend this month, and really enjoyed them.

Another of her books, about a Dragon and a fox

Watch Me Throw The Ball
A little kids book, the series is called Piggie and Elephant and everyone should read them. They are fun books.

Waiting Is Not Easy
Same series.

There Is A Bird On Your Head
Same

I Am Invited To A Party!
Same

Roverandom
One of Tolkien's books, which he wrote after one of his sons lost his toy dog. I love this book.

How to Raise and Keep a Dragon
The title says it all.

A Book I Was Asked To Read and Give An Opinion On. (Not published yet.)
LOVED this one.

The Titan's Curse, Percy Jackson Graphic Novel
Just for fun

Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat
Calvin and Hobbes

My Friend Is Sad
Piggie and Elephant

Are You Ready To Play Outside?
Same

Should I Share My Ice Cream?
Same

Eleanor's Story: An American Girl in Hitler's Germany
A true story. It was sometimes hard to read, because it showed the war through the eyes of a young girl.

A Big Guy Took My Ball
Piggie and Elephant

We Are In A Book
Same

Can I Play Too?
Same

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz: Graphic Novel
Weird, but fun to read.

Another book about Dragon and the fox, written by my friend

Mark of the Thief
This had a very Roman feel to it, but I still ended up liking it. It is written by the Author of The False Prince, which I love.

The Dark
One of Lemony Snicket's books for kids. A little creepy, but still good.

Don't Give Up, Don't Give In
A book by Louie Zamperini

Another book by a friend. A fantasy. Which was amazing.

The Secret Abyss
A Sherlock Holmes retelling of sorts. This series is wonderful, also Steampunk which is an added bonus.

The Bielski Brothers
A WWII story about three brothers who saved 1,200 Jews in Russia. The movie Defiance was based off their story.

The Wulver's Rose
Beauty and the Beast retelling set in Scotland

A Wish Made of Glass
Cinderella retelling by one of my favourite Authors.

Red Rackham's Barnacles (Treasure)
TINTIN!

The Seven Crystal Balls
TINTIN

Vango: Between Earth and Sky
This book. There are no words for how much I love this book.

Prisoners of the Sun
TINTIN!

A Prince without a Kingdom
Sequel to Vango...just as amazing.

The Lost Heir
Not my favourite but not horrible

The King's Scrolls
JACE!!!!!!!!! (I love him, okay?)

A Dragon and Martin book

What Thou Need'st
A short book by one of my friends. It was enjoyable.

Half-Blood
BABY JACE!!!!!!!!!! Baby Jace is adorable and heart breaking.

And that is my list. Smaller then I had intended, but I got to read some amazing books so that made up for it.

  1. The King's Scrolls and Half-Blood! Two of my favorite books. Baby Jace is SO heartbreaking. And when Strune (you know, but spoilers), it was awful. Jaye is such an amazing author.

  4. Love Piggie and Elephant! And Tintin and Roverandom too. I reread Smith of Wootton Major and Farmer GIles of Ham this year. That WWII story sounds very intriguing...

  7. Nice list! I just read Vango because of your recommendation. I enjoyed it!
    Every time I see "Red Rackham's Barnacles" it brings me back to The Big Fat Tintin Quiz... "That is in the movie! You've got one wrong. Now you've got to go cut off your quiff."
