Three Books + Free Fall Reading List Printable | Blog-tember Day 12

Three Books + Free Fall Reading List Printable | Blog-tember Day 12 - A Simpler Grace #blogtemberchallenge



It's blog-tember day 12 and today, we are talking about three books: one recently read, one currently reading and one to be read. This kind of post, as you might have guessed, is right up my alley. I'm also sharing a fall reading list printable that I made just for you! Find the link to download it at the end of this post.

I've been doing a lot of reading recently and have shared a lot about the books I've read and hope to read here on the blog and on Instagram. Here are my three books.

RECENTLY READ: THE CENTURY TRILOGY BY KEN FOLLETT
This is a series that follows several families in the United States, Russia, and Europe from the early 1900's through the World Wars and continues until after the Vietnam War and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

This series is definitely an interesting read, albeit very long, and focuses heavily on the relationships of the various characters who seem to passively float through the book without the reader becoming very invested in them. It's a good series but requires a lot of time to get through.

CURRENTLY READING: I AM MALALA BY MALALA YOUSAFZAI
The biography of fifteen-year-old Malala Yousafzai, a girl from the Swat Valley of Pakistan who is shot by the Taliban for standing up for education. I'm only half-way through the book and am surprised with how insightful and passionate Malala is. So far, this has been a very inspiring book.

TO BE READ: THE CATCHER IN THE RYE BY JD SALINGER
I'm going to be reading this book for the #Collaboreads linkup later this month. The prompt for this month is reading a banned book and The Catcher in the Rye has been banned or challenged a number of times. I'll share a full review in a few weeks.



FREE FALL READING LIST PRINTABLE
And now for your free download! I created a free summer reading list in June and everyone seemed to love it, so I thought I would do one for fall too. I've already printed mine out and have it full of my picks for the next few months. I'd love to know which books you are going to add to your reading list! Enjoy!


Also, don't forget to hop over to Love Bailey Jean to check out what the other bloggers are reading!
