Top Ten Tuesday — Fall TBR

04 Sep

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join.  If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!

My Fall TBR list is really my “I need to read to finish my reading challenges” books.  So really this should be a my Fall TBR categories and number of books.  Some of these are already sitting on my TBR shelf and others are definitely not going to get read…  So sad!  I’m sure some of these will end up on my Winter TBR list.
