Each season we come up with a few must read books. What’s on your Autumn reading list?
Kim … I’ve only read one of the books off of my Summer Reading Inbox list. So I’ve only put two for sure books on my Fall Reading list.
The Cruelest Month, Louise Penny
I love this series but haven’t read any in awhile. A new one is out so it’s time to get back at it. Plus I’d like to actually read them in order from here on out.
When some villagers decide to celebrate Easter with a seance at the Old Hadley House, they are hoping to rid the town of its evil — until one of their party dies of fright. Was this a natural death, or was the victim somehow helped along?
The Raven King, Maggie Stiefvater
I know I’m going to be sad to say goodbye to this series but I’m also really excited to see how it ends.
For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is no longer his own; Noah, whose life is no longer a lie; and Blue, who loves Gansey… and is certain she is destined to kill him.
Tanya … I’m reading the last book in my Summer Reading Inbox, so I’m adding a few more.
The Good House, Tananarive Due
The home that belonged to Angela Toussaint’s late grandmother is so beloved that townspeople in Sacajawea, Washington, call it the Good House. But that all changes one summer when an unexpected tragedy takes place behind its closed doors and the Toussaint’s family history — and future — is dramatically transformed. Angela has not returned to the Good House since her son, Corey, died there two years ago. But now, Angela is finally ready to return to her hometown and go beyond the grave to unearth the truth about Corey’s death.
Coincidentally, another book by Tananarive Due (Ghost Summer) was on my reading list last Fall.
Moxyland, Lauren Beukes
This novel follows the lives of four narrators living in an alternative futuristic Cape Town, South Africa. Kendra, an art-school dropout, brands herself for a nanotech marketing program; Lerato, an ambitious AIDS baby, plots to defect from her corporate employers; Tendeka, a hot-headed activist, is becoming increasingly rabid; and Toby, a roguish blogger, discovers that the video games he plays for cash are much more than they seem. On a collision course that will rewire their lives, this story crackles with bold and infectious ideas, connecting a ruthless corporate-apartheid government with video games, biotech attack dogs, slippery online identities, a township soccer school, shocking cell phones, addictive branding, and genetically modified art.
