16 Books for Your Fall Reading List

Here's What I WISH I could read in the next 2 months. I read 13 books in August so I am hoping to keep up the pace! 

Instead of a synopsis, I am simply listing what made me want to read each book. Click on the title to read more about the books on Goodreads! I've also received most of these books through the publishers or Netgalley, so I'm also giving shout outs because I am so thankful for all of the review copies! 

Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo - I've heard about this book on the All The Books podcast from Book Riot and so many of my fellow bookstagrammers are raving about it. (Amazon)

Without Merit by Colleen Hoover - I hear about Colleen Hoover all the time and everyone LOVED It Ends With Us, but I didn't at all. So when I was contacted by the publisher asking if I would like a copy of her newest book, I decided to give her another try. We shall see! (ARC, Atria Books) 

Something Like Happy by Eva Woods - This book was on a list of recommendations from Netgalley, who gave me the e-book. Sounds like something I will enjoy. 

George & Lizzie by Nancy Pearl-also another recommendation based on my reviews from Netgalley. 

The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah- I am a huge fan of Hannah (The Nightengale) You just can't go wrong. Thanks to St. Martin's Press! 

Young Jane Young by Gabrielle Zevin- Anyone else weirdly fascinated by Monica Lewinsky? Bueller? Sorry, but I am and I can't help it, so when I heard that this campy little book mimics the biggest sex scandal of the 90s, I couldn't help it. Just received a beautiful hardback from Algonquin Books! 

Shadow of the Lions by Christopher Swann- Thanks to bookstagram, here's another one I heard about through the bookworm grapevine and received a hardback review copy from Algonquin Books. 

Unraveling Oliver by Liz Nugent- Honestly, this book caught my attention because of the cover. Thinking this may be a good one to use my September Audible credit on. 

The Other Alcott by Elise Hooper- The March Sisters were some of the first characters I fell in love with so when I heard about this book, a nonfiction account of the author's own sister, I knew I had to read it. Thanks for the copy, William Morrow! 

How to Behave in a Crowd by Camille Bordas-Another must read because of bookstagram. So many of the gals I follow on Instagram have been posting about this book. The title alone is something I have been trying to figure out on my own my whole life so I know I have to read it. (Thanks for the copy, Blogging for Books)

The Resurrection of Joan Ashby by Cherise Wolas- This book is just everywhere and getting great reviews. 

The It Girls by Karen Harper- I was browsing through the Fall catalog of upcoming releases from HarperCollins and this one caught my attention immediately. I am so excited they offered to send me an advanced reader's copy. 

The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas - I think this is an important book to read in today's culture of fast judgements and racial issues. I just think it's going to be a really good dose of perspective. 

Words in Deep Blue by Cath Crowley- This book piqued my interest a couple months ago and it kept getting pushed down on my list. BUT, thanks to my friend Steph at Life According to Steph, who raved about it on her Show Us Your Books, August post, I was reminded and back in the pile it goes! 

The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne - I have never heard the gals on All The Books podcast rave about a book as much as this one, so on to the pile it automatically goes. (Amazon, hardback) 

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng (My BOTM pick for September) Lots of buzz, plus being a pick from Book of the Month Club automatically gets you a spot on my TBR list. 

So there you have it- the list of books that will be keeping me busy this Fall. Bring on the hot coffee, the blankets  and the open windows, because it's my favorite time of year to curl up on the couch with great books!

Book Review: Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

"When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens."

My review of Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

This book will definitely be on my best of 2018 reading list!

This slow and steady escape in to the marshlands of the North Carolina coast in the 1960s is indulgent and memorizing. Owens takes you on two adventures: one is trying to solve the murder of a young man whose body was found at the bottom of a fire tower with no clues on how he died.

The other is the life of Kya Clark, a young girl left behind by her family and raising herself completely alone. Her skill, bravery and acute attention to the natural world that surrounds her kept my attention. Her marsh home is the only thing that she trusts and when one young man shows her compassion by visiting her and teaching her how to read, she begins to see a side of life and love that she never knew existed. As she grows up, Kya becomes one with the …

Book Review: The Perfect Couple by Elin Hilderbrand

The best book of the summer! 

Why I loved it: The setting of Nantucket is impeccably described. I could smell the salty sea air, I could taste the lobster rolls and I could hear the wave tides coming in. I loved the cast of characters. They are a motley crew of loveable and hateable characters, people I could picture being friends with and others I wanted to shove. They were introduced quickly but the fact that you get to read various points of views make the story line easy to follow. I could picture them so clearly in my mind. 
It's a roller coaster of a novel- first you think a young couple is in love and on the verge of happily ever after. They are rich, talented and envied. Hundreds of people are coming to their lavish wedding and they are the envy of everyone around them. And then there is a tragedy: the bride finds her maid of honor dead on the beach, the morning of her wedding. 
Everything starts to unravel after that point. Secrets that you WILL NOT see coming reveal the…

The Start of My 2019 Reading List

It's going to be hard to beat 2018's reading list but here is a great start! Here are just a few of the books that will be on my reading list at the beginning of this year! 

Elsey Come Home by Susan Conley, Out January 15, AA Knopf 

From the widely praised author of Paris Was the Place–a shattering new novel that bravely delves into the darkest corners of addiction, marriage, and motherhood. 

The Last Romantics by Tara Conklin, Out February 2, William Morrow 
It begins in a big yellow house with a funeral, an iron poker, and a brief variation forever known as the Pause: a free and feral summer in a middle-class Connecticut town. Caught between the predictable life they once led and an uncertain future that stretches before them, the Skinner siblings—fierce Renee, sensitive Caroline, golden boy Joe and watchful Fiona—emerge from the Pause staunchly loyal and deeply connected. Two decades later, the siblings find themselves once again confronted with a family crisis that tests the …
