Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My Fall 2019 To Be Read List

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Each week there is a different topic and you make your own list that will fit into that theme.

Happy Fall! I will talk about this more later this week, but I have recently selected a book challenge. That being said, most of my Fall 2019 to be read list is based on that challenge. All of the below books will be on the Fuse 8 Productions Top 100 lists. Here are the top ten!

Go Away, Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley

I sort of remember this book from my childhood but not really…mostly I recognize the cover. Ed Emberley is a Caldecott winning artist and this is suppose to be a great read aloud book for ages 3-5.

The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

I love Shel Silberstein’s work and this book has great lessons to teach elementary students from what I remember. I would like to re-read it this fall.

Whistle for Willie by Ezra Jack Keats

The cover of this book looks very interesting and fun. Plus, there is a wiener dog! The illustrations look wonderful and full of color.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss

Another author that is absolutely fantastic. I love Dr. Suess’s books and am excited to read this one. I honestly cannot remember if I have read the book…

Corduroy by Donald Freeman

I added this to my top ten recently because I saw a newer Corduroy book on the library shelf this week. It made me want to go grab the first one and read it!

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

This book has been on my to be read list for quiet some time. Its a Newbery Honor and has many good reviews. I am excited to see what the hype is about.

The Giver by Lois Lowry

A dystopian novel!! I cannot believe I have never read this book. This book will be one of the first to leave my to be read list.

Little Women by Lousia May Alcott

Okay, I have already read this book as well BUT it has been a little while since I picked it up. I am excited to re-read it and find new parts of the story.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane written by Kate DiCamillo

I have heard this book is beautiful and will make you cry but simply have not found the time to read it yet. Hence, why it is on this list!

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume

I actually had this book recommended to me not too long after I decided to pursue a degree in teaching. I LOVE Judy Blume books and have been told this one is extremely funny! Another book that will be off my to be read list very shortly

What books are on your Fall 2019 to be read list?

Thank you for visiting and happy reading!

  1. We have such similar reading tastes it looks like! I have either read, am going to read or now want to read most of the books on this post! I do think this is one of the greatest benefits of these blogs. We are able to use each other as a resource to expand our classroom reading choices. When you find people that are either teaching the same grades as you or have similar interests as you, you can share book ideas, lesson ideas and learn about new books you might not have heard of! Do you enjoy blogging? Have you felt like you have saw books from others posts that you had not heard of, but now want to read? P.S. The Judy Blume book is now also on my list! It sounds great!

    1. I completely agree! I have really enjoyed blogging which surprised me because at first I was very nervous about it. I have found soooo many books I want to read based on what others are reading. Half of my to be read list is most likely from other classmates posts haha! Do you find a lot of books that you want to add from others posts too?

  2. Destiny,
    You have some amazing books in this top ten list. I really like how you selected books for multiple age groups. Would you use any of these books for reading groups? I remember reading Hatchet in the 5th grade in my reading circle and really enjoyed it.
