While I feel like I did a lot of reading over the summer, I can’t wait for fall so that I can cozy up with a book more often. AKA read while Josh watches back-to-back-to-back football games. Here are some of my favorite reads from the end of the summer that will kick-off your fall reading list. This was an interesting, and varied, group, to say the least!
This book was not what I was expecting, at all. It was one of the hottest books of the summer and I read it on the plane on the way home from Vegas earlier this month. I loved the moments of suspense, but all of the medical neurosis of the main character, who is a doctor, didn’t come together for me until the end of the book. I’m still torn about how I feel about Summer House with Swimming Pool, but I’d still recommend it. Curious to know what you think. I’m still processing this one! Find it on Amazon.
One of my favorite reads of the summer, I’ve had this book on my to-read list for a long time and I’m so glad that I finally read it. It was quick and romantic in an unexpected way, but with tragic heartbreak that wrenches your heart out at first, but then lets reality settle in. A must-read, in my opinion. Find it on Amazon.
This fantasy/historical fiction genre isn’t one that I read very often. But, this book had been recommended to me time and time again, so I went for it. I loved about half of the book. The other half, I skimmed through. The parts I loved, I really, really loved. It was filled with action and amazing historical details and lots of sex. If you’re a Downton Abbey fan, you might like this book and there are many more books in the series, if you like something to dig your teeth into. I’m not sure if I’ll continue on to the second book… Find it on Amazon.
If the fireplace on the cover doesn’t give it away, let me tell you… this is the perfect book to cozy up with this fall. Telling the story of how the childhood favorite, Goodnight Moon, came to be (at least, in the mind of Sarah Jio), I loved how the book wove its characters together, as they always do. A must-read for curling up next to your own fireplace this fall. Find it on Amazon.
This book. It still has my mind in knots because I can’t tell if it was very good… or very bad. It was one of the Editor’s Picks on Amazon for July and the reviews were outstanding, but there were times when it felt terribly awkward. Maybe it was due to the painful coming-of-age story and its main character? I’d love to hear from you, if you’ve read this book… Find it on Amazon.
