Top Ten Books on My TBR List for Fall

It's Tuesday, and that means Top Ten day over at The Broke and the Bookish.  Head on over and check out all the blogs who posted lists today!

Today's topic is Top Ten Books on My TBR List for Fall.  I noticed some blogs mainly listed books that will be released this fall that they want to read.  I'm never that organized or caught up, so I went to my rather extensive TBR (to be read) bookcase.  Yes, they almost fill up a whole bookcase now!  And some have been there for a very long time, as you will see.  These are the ones I most want to read next, though I'm sure I won't get to all of them this fall, allowing time for book group reads as well.  (I stuck to just grown-up books here, but you can also read my Top Ten Kid/Teen Books on My TBR List over at Great Books for Kids and Teens.)
  • The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley - I've wanted to read this for years and picked it up at Borders' clearance sale recently.
  • Smokin' Seventeen by Janet Evanovich - a birthday gift - after all these long books this summer, I'm looking forward to a little fluffy fun!
  • Peony in Love by Lisa See - my mother lent it to me years ago, but I've been hearing a lot about See's latest release and thought I should see what all the fuss is about.
  • The Book of Air and Shadows by Michael Gruber - my husband says it was very good and has just finished another Gruber book - I need to catch up!
  • Another Thing to Fall by Laura Lippman - another Borders find that I got for my husband.
  • Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen - an intriguing memoir I can't wait to get to - maybe I can convince my book group to choose this one.
  • The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz - another Borders clearance item - I've heard good things about this for years.
  • Midwives by Chris Bohjalian - borrowed from my neighbor years ago - I really need to read it and return it!
  • Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver - another that's been on my shelf for ages - all my friends say it's great.
  • The Lost Girls by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett, and Amanda Pressner - a memoir about travel and friendship?  I must read it!
So, that's just a small sample from my over-full shelves.  What books do you want to read this fall?
