Bucket Lists are everywhere these days so it seems.
From travel to family adventure, everyone has a list if things they dream of doing. Equally as fun as making the list is being able to tick things off as they go.
Believe it or not, I too have a Bucket List. Well, several actually. But more recently (as I view my overwhelming stack of books I need to read) and decided to use the sweet slowness of autumn in TN to create a Kidlit Bucket List and happily check them off as I go. All of these books I either am reading, or need to, are part of my role as a Jump Into a Book reviewer. Here’s the books you will find on my Reading Bucket List for Fall:
Topsy Turvy World books by Wes Magee & Tracey Tucker
Find Your Way books by Paul Boston
Under the Sea is an interactive book journey traveling through the ocean to the Merp’s castle! Along the way, you will learn about mapping skills as well as practice some math. Find the pearls, burgers, and shark teeth that are needed at the castle, but remember that there will always be roadblocks.
What on Earth by Isabel Thomas
Jumbo Stickers Little Hands by Jomike Tejido
Another books to get you in the holiday spirit is a new release from author Charlotte Riggle. Charlotte’s first book, Catherine’s Pascha, is as beautiful as Pascha itself, with words that sparkle and illustrations that glow with the joy of the feast. Her most recent book, The Saint Nicholas Day Snow, took less than two years to write and it follows Catherine and her best friend Elizabeth during a surprise snowstorm on St. Nicholas Eve. The illustrations in this children’s book are amazing!

The day has come! The much-anticipated release of Ascension by Hannah Rials is finally HERE!
Enter this world of vampires, set in the south, and realize you are being pulled in more—and deeper—with each page.
Steeped in the mystery, intrigue and rich history of New Orleans and the secretive world of the Deuxsang, teen vampire, Cheyenne, and her forbidden love, Eli, embark on a very different, and vastly more dangerous, journey as the net of betrayal tightens around them. This intense and fresh novel is enchanting, engrossing and impossible to put down right up to the cliffhanger ending. Remember, the end is not the end.
What an extraordinary debut novel with new and intriguing twists on vampires—a strong female protagonist as one. I already can’t wait for book two.-Jill Murphy Long, author of The Conduit
This book is by the far the BEST YA/Adult fiction that I’ve read in a very long while. So exciting!-Rebecca F
The wait is over-Ascension is here! Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a crazy roller coaster. Hannah has grown into the most amazing writer. Watching her journey has been as much fun as holding the book in my hands. A “must read” for YA and thriller fans!-Valarie B
