Hi, hello! How are you all? I can’t believe I am writing for my blog again, the break was just too long. But let’s leave that to the past now.
Here are some really important questions I want you to answer. How are you liking the new look of the blog? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Let me know in the comments below!
Anyway, today I am talking about the Autumn Reading List. Because let’s face it, nothing beats the calming feeling you get by sitting in your bed all tucked up in your blanket with a great book in your hand. Am I right?
Another thing I am excited about is wearing oversized hoodies and sippin’ on my hot chocolate all. Day. Long. Oh would you just imagine it?
Also, if you’re someone who doesn’t fancy reading then let me please tell you, you are missing out on A LOT. And this time I am not even exaggerating. Go ask your nerdy friends (I am not a nerd just, BTW)
Here are 4 books on my Autumn Reading List, go through all these summaries and let me know which one would you have a yen for.
1. Girl in Pieces (Kathleen Glasgow)
Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people lose in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm.
This is an absolute must-read. Mark my words. You are totally going to start thinking in a different way (positive one, I promise) You’d cry. You’d be angry. But at the end of it, you’ll understand her sorrow.
2. The Rosie Project (Graeme Simision)
An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.
Oh My God. This is book would totally leave you in giggles. It’s a bit slow to start with but as you get used to the characters and the whole plot of the book, I bet you’re going to love it. Moreover, it’s not your usual novel.
3. The Nest (Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney)
Every family has its problems. But even among the most troubled, the Plumb family stands out as spectacularly dysfunctional. Years of simmering tensions finally reach a breaking point on an unseasonably cold afternoon in New York City as Melody, Beatrice, and Jack Plumb gather to confront their charismatic and reckless older brother, Leo, freshly released from rehab.
Who doesn’t love some drama? I sure do, there’s nothing that can beat the fun. And this book clearly justifies it.
4. Sophie’s World (Jostein Gaarder)
Sophie finds two questions in her mailbox: “Who are you?” and “Where does the world come from?” This is the start of her journey through the history of philosophy, guided by a mysterious mentor. To find the truth, we must understand the questions, but the truth is stranger than Sophie can imagine.
This has to be my favourite book this reading list, that’s why I left the best for the last. I can’t believe how clichéd I’ve got over my break. Anyway, this book makes you think of all the things you would never want to or even thought of giving a second of your day. Sometimes, you’d find yourself keep the book down and reflect over what’s written. And believe me, that’s when you know it’s a great book!
That’s it with my reading list, don’t hesitate to leave some of yours down in the comments section. I’d love to get them a read sometime.
Also, make sure you have subscribed. (If you have in the past, I’d ask you to subscribe again. Don’t worry, we won’t send you a gazillion of emails)
Until next time,
