This was more difficult than I thought.
Of course, I could have chosen the super easy way, and just put in French books, as most just have the title on the cover, like for the very first book I listed (which I’m currently reading).
I think it’s actually a neat thing, so that you don’t get influenced by the cover. Would you like your book covers to mostly be words, what do you think?
And you can do really smart things actually, see for instance Red is my Heart here below.

As usual, I went chronologically, starting by books I read most recently.
The last two do have some illustrations, but it is so simple, that I thought I could add them here. Plus what they did with these two titles is very smart when you know the content.

Here are the first 10 books I plan on reading this Fall.
It’s definitely going to be a Fall for classics, even more than in Fall 2021!

The first one is what I got for Classics Spin #31:

Selected Poems of Rainer Maria Rilke

Then I’ll be participating in The 1929 Club (October 24-30), and planning to read these 3 for that event:The 1929 Club

Then November has a couple of reading events.
I haven’t decided yet which books I’ll be reading for Nonfiction November.
But here are 6 novellas I’d like to read for the other event: Novellas in November

Novellas in November

Funny, I thought I would quickly find 10 titles for this theme, just going through my list of books read by descending chronological order, but in fact, I had to go back to August 2021 to be able to find ten of them!

I’m happy with the diversity of geographical terms I harvested:
alley, archipelago, hollow, mountains, pond, river (2), street, village, woods

Top Ten Geographical terms

And here are the links to those I have reviewed:

Midaq Alley
The Archipelago of Another Life (review and read-along, with Q&A)
No Woods So Dark As These

At the Mountains of Madness
River of Stars
A River Runs Through It
The Village of Eight Graves
