I’m linking up today with That Artsy Reader Girl: Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books on My Fall 2022 TBR.
What is your most anticipated fall read?
With all the books that are on my radar on a given day, it’s nice to pick out a few for an official TBR. Ten still leaves room for library holds that come in, occasional ARCs, or some mood reading. My most anticipated read is The Winners by Fredrik Backman (#3 in the Beartown series).
One question you may ask is “Are these spooky reads or thrillers?” Many readers have differing opinions of what comprises a fall read: some want spooky, some look for atmospheric, some seek out thrillers, while others like to tackle large tomes or nonfiction during the fall when they are spending more time sitting by the fire. It’s my opinion that any book you read in the fall is a fall read. For my fall reads, I look for the types of books I look for all year: memorable, thought-provoking, and unputdownable. So the answer to the question is NO….no thrillers or spooky reads because I’m too susceptible to nightmares.
Keep in mind that I’m not yet recommending the books on my official fall TBR list…..check back often, though, because I will provide updates and links to reviews as I read them. For now, these are the reads that are on my fall 2022 reading radar.
Find my Summer TBR update here. I’ve read 8/10: one I’m not sure about because I’ve seen mixed reviews and the other one won’t be available for e book until early 2023.

Have a great week
Thanks! Happy fall reading! Hopping over to read your post!
Oooh, I hadn’t realised that Louise Penny had a new book coming out. I need to get that as soon as I can.
I hope we both love it! Her last one fell a bit flat for me.
I’m really interested to see what you think of Carrie Soto, Carol. I finished it ages ago and have mixed feelings, and still have my review to right up!
Hummmmm….. I’m interested in your thoughts! I’ve been seeing so many reviews that my FOMO was kicking in! 😂
A Few of these definitely draw my attention. I hope to read Us Against You during the holidays, then I can get to The Winners as well.
Hope you get to read all your books soon!
Thanks Mareli! Happy fall reading!
I didn’t know Fredrik Backman had a new book coming out. Neat!

It will be nice to complete the Beartown series! I’m hopping over to read your post! Happy fall reading!
Lovely that you stuck with the theme. Well done.
I had to find something else, as well, since I haven’t read most of the books on my last list. So, I did a completely different challenge.
Yay! You’d make
Nice challenge! Yay for your persistence in finding #10! I should edit my post!
I hope you enjoy all of these. I feel the same way, I don’t subscribe to seasonal specific reading, I just read whatever I feel like!

Happy fall reading! I’m hopping over to read your post!
Thank you for making me aware of When We Had Wings — by some of my favorite authors.
You’re welcome! It’s a fabulous collaboration!
Nice mix of books! I hope you enjoy these when you are able to read them.
Thanks Cindy! Happy fall reading!
Oh, An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth and Once Upon a December look fun/interesting! Can’t wait to see what you think of them~ I hope you have a wonderful Fall!
Thanks! I’m eager to dive in! Happy fall reading!
I’ve seen a few of Chris Hadfield’s educational talks. I love his passion and humor. Hopefully that comes through in his book!
Oh I hope so as well! I need to look him up! Thanks for commenting!
Great list. I have several of these on my Goodreads TBR. I hope you like them all!
Thanks! Happy fall reading!
I agree with you, any book you read in the fall is a fall book! I hope you enjoy each of these when you get the opportunity!
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
Thanks Pam! 🙌
Christmas And a Bookshop! Hold me back, Carol! Haha. You know that’s a lie. On my way to grab a copy.
They know how to reel us in Gina! 🎣
You have a lot of wonderful books here. I just loved Carrie Soto. And I just started (like 10 mins ago!) Once Upon a December.
Thanks Wendy! We’re on the same reading trajectory! 🙌😍
I do want to read Carrie Soto this fall too… although by the time my library hold comes through, it’ll probably be winter! 🙂 Hope you enjoy all of these!
Yep…my library hold is long as well!
I love all the Christmas/wintry covers! They’re so cozy and fun. I hope you enjoy all these!
Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!
Thanks Susan! Happy fall reading! Im hopping over to read your post!
Carrie Soto is Back is also on my TBR. I’ve already bought The Bullet That Missed by Richard Osman. I love the Thursday Murder Club series.
Otherwise, I’ll focus on books I’ve already purchased but haven’t read yet.
The Osman series is popular! I’ve only read the first one. Happy fall reading!
I don’t change my reading habits according to the season either. I’m just as likely to read something set in summer when outside the skies are grey and the trees are bare.
I have the Louise Penny on my list too…
I hope the new LP is good! The last one was meh for me. Happy fall reading!
I haven’t got to number 17 yet. Still catching up on some of the earlier books I had missed
One thing about her books is that they’re all different! The stories are fresh and new and not overly formulaic.
What a great list, Carol. I have wanted to read Chris Hadfield’s book for so long. There are several on this post that are also on my TBR, but a few that I will have to check out. I should have put The Winners on my fall TTT list as well, because I am planning on reading it.
An Astronaut is good on audio Carla!
I will have to see if my library has the audiobook.
…..and because it’s an older title, I was able to get it at the library right away with no wait!
