Fall Into Reading Book List

I found out about this reading challenge through my Aunt's blog (thanks Karlene) and I am excited to try it out. I'm on bedrest for another two weeks so that should give me a head start on my reading list. The challenge is just to set a reading goal and complete it between now and December 21st. I'm sure my list may change but here's what I have so far.

1.Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
2. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
4. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
5. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
6. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
7. Austenland by Shannon Hale
8. Any book by Charles Dickens
9. The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
10. The War: An Intimate History, 1941-1945 by Geoffrey C. Ward (this one will be a stretch for me and we'll see if I can make it through it...I find history books so difficult to get into)
11. That's My Son: How Moms Can Influence Boys to Become Men of Character by Rick Johnson
12. For Women Only: What You Need to Know about the Inner Lives of Men by Shaunti Feldhahn
13. The Mommy Manual: Planting Roots That Give Your Children Wings by Barbara Curtis

I stumbled upon the last three while browsing Amazon so I'm a little uncertain about them. I added them because they sounded interesting. If any of you have read them or even heard anything about them let me know if they're worth reading. Also let me know if you have a favorite Charles Dickens book. Thanks!

I read For Women Only and thought it was awesome. (For Men Only was great, too.) The author did a lot of research before writing both books, and she has a way of putting things that, even though you may have heard them before, makes a lot of sense. I think you'll be glad you read this book.

I've heard good things about For Women Only. I'm seeing The Book Thief on many lists. I'll have to check it out. Enjoy your fall reading.

We'll both be reading Rebecca and The Book Thief this fall! I can also say that The Five Love Languages is great, and I enjoyed The Mommy Manual as well. Thanks for joining the challenge. Enjoy your books!

I have Twilight on my wish list and if I finished my other books, just may add it. Every time I look at a reading list, I am adding to my amazon wish list. *grin*

Happy Reading
