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 that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.

  1. Ooo, I hadn’t thought of The Virgin Suicides for this but that’s a great choice. Very beautiful and disjointing – reminds me of Never Let Me Go, which I also definitely thought of as ‘autumnal.’

    Great list!

  2. I definitely have to read The Virgin Suicides! I’ve seen the movie and of course heard the book is far better (how often isn’t it?). It sounds like a great read for Halloween.

    I have to go check out some of these books, nice list!

    P.S. This is my second favourite theme 🙂 It’s great for a book blog.
