You just never know what one book will inspire you to read next. On my Fall reading list are books that I didn’t get to over the summer, book recommendations from other bloggers, and books from authors I heart.
Second Life, S.J. Watson
If Watson writes on a paper towel and publishes it – I want to read it. That’s how much I loved his first novel, Before I Go to Sleep. Now he’s back with Second Life. “She loves her husband. She’s obsessed by a stranger. She’s a devoted mother. She’s prepared to lose everything. She knows what she’s doing. She’s out of control. She’s innocent. She’s guilty as sin. She’s living two lives. She might lose both.”
Armada, Ernest Cline
If you haven’t read Ready Player One by Cline yet – well, I’m sorry for you my friend! His latest novel, Armada, seems like it has a similar vibe and I’m super excited to get a hold of a copy. “Zack tells himself, he knows the difference between fantasy and reality … And then he sees the flying saucer. Even stranger, the alien ship he’s staring at is straight out of the videogame he plays every night, a hugely popular online flight simulator called Armada—in which gamers just happen to be protecting the earth from alien invaders.”
Finders Keepers, Stephen King
It’s Stephen King… need I elaborate?! Finders Keepers is the follow-up to Mr. Mercedes, and it seems like there’s going to be 3 books in the series featuring the retired detective, Bill Hodges, as a returning character. I’m game.
Big Little Lies, Liane Moriarty
Both Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.”and said I need to get on this book ASAP since I liked The Husband’s Secret so much. So on the reading list it goes. “
Ghost Summer, Tananarive Due
Where’s the diversity on my list?! Oh no no no … that just won’t do – and #Diversiverse is coming in October, so let’s check in with Tananarive Due, who recently published her first short fiction collection . “Due takes us to Gracetown, a small Florida town that has both literal and figurative ghost; into future scenarios that seem all too real; and provides empathetic portraits of those whose lives are touched by Otherness.”
Career of Evil (Cormoran Strike #3), Robert Galbraith
I LOVE the Cormoran Strike books by Robert Gailbrath (aka JK Rowling), and thank the gods book 3 is coming out in October. When a mysterious package is delivered to Robin Ellacott, she is horrified to discover that it contains a woman’s severed leg.
There are so many more books I want to add here, but since I’m a mood reader – the minute I write them down is the minute I decide to read something else! So let’s just leave it at 6, and we’ll see where Autumn leaves us … get it – Autumn … leaves 🙂 What’s your 1 absolute must read book for Fall?
