Can you feel Fall in the air? Because, I can and i'm loving every moment of it. For me I love fall, it's the perfect time to snuggle up with a fuzzy blanket put your comfy socks on a big sweater and a nice warm drink! I rounded up some of books that I think would be perfect fall reads. Im excited to start reading again in full swing! Be sure to tag me if you decided to join the Fall reading with me, I'd love to see your posts. Happy reading!
1) Is the September book of the month and worth mentioning for my fall reads as well. Its called Sourdough by: Robin Sloan. For any of my Cali people this book is for you! Meet a software engineer that gets left her two brothers hole in the wall bakery and now has to learn how to bake and keep the business running. All based in the Bay Area. Who doesn't love a good book about food and in a metropolitan city?
2) Tales of the Peculiar by: Ransom Riggs. This is the perfect book for fall. Something about magical, and fantasy books that give me all the fall vibes. In this book you'll meet characters and world's before you knew them in his book series Miss Peregrines home for peculiar children. He shares his secrets in stories.
3) The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by: Natasha Pulley. The summary on the back of the books sums it up nicely. "The Watchmaker of Filigree Street is a sweeping, atmospheric narrative that takes the reader on an unexpected journey through Victorian London, Japan as its civil war crumbles long-standing traditions, and beyond. Blending historical events with dazzling flights of fancy, it opens doors to a strange and magical past" Sounds like the perfect read for a fall day.
4) Everything, Everything by:Nicola Yoon. So not only is this book about to be out on Digital soon, I thought I would include it in the fall reads. For me I love reading books before the movies come out so I can see how close they made the movie to the book. This book is about a young girl that is allergic to everything, till one day when they move and and she catches her eye on the boy next door, Olly. She then goes on an adventure that could change her life dramatically forever.
5) Victoria by: Daisy Goodwin. Based on the now hit tv show on PBS (I'm currently obsessed with and can't wait for it to come back this fall!) This is the book the tv show is based off of. I absolutely love Daisy Goodwin as a writer and was throughly excited to see her write this book about Queen Victoria. Here's a little summary on the book "One of those ministers, Lord Melbourne, became Victoria’s private secretary. Perhaps he might have become more than that, except everyone argued she was destined to marry her cousin, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. But Victoria had met Albert as a child and found him stiff and critical: surely the last man she would want for a husband…." Find out what happens to Victoria in this book.
6) Heartless by: Marissa Meyer. I know i'm very late to the game on this book but I'm very excited to read it. This book is a nice spin on the classic Alice in Wonderland, but focusing on the Queen of Hearts. The summary on the back sums it up, " Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland and a favorite of the unmarried King, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, she wants to open a shop and create delectable pastries. But for her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for a woman who could be a queen. At a royal ball where Cath is expected to receive the King’s marriage proposal, she meets handsome and mysterious Jest. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the King and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into a secret courtship. Cath is determined to choose her own destiny. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans."
7) The second book in the Passenger series and couldn't be more excited! Wayfarer by: Alexandra Bracken. "As Etta and Nicholas fight to make their way back to one another, from Imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, time is rapidly shifting and changing into something unrecognizable… and might just run out on both of them." Continue their epic journey, can't wait to find out!
8) Again another highly anticipated book for the fall for myself is the Tower of Dawn by: Sarah J. Maas. Continuing in the Throne of glass series is the 6th installment. "
Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken. His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them. But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined." Who doesn't love Chaol? I do and can't wait to read to find out what happens!
9) Three Dark Crowns by: Kendare Blake. Who doesn't like a little competition? But how about Compition agaisnt your own flesh and blood? This story will have you staying up all night to find out! "In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born—three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions. But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.The last queen standing gets the crown."
10) Camino Island by: John Girsham. I just finished this book and I definitely couldn't put it down. Those who are big fans of the classic writes, especially of the Great Gastby will love this book. "A gang of thieves stage a daring heist from a secure vault deep below Princeton University’s Firestone Library. Their loot is priceless, but Princeton has insured it for twenty-five million dollars. Bruce Cable owns a popular bookstore in the sleepy resort town of Santa Rosa on Camino Island in Florida. He makes his real money, though, as a prominent dealer in rare books. Very few people know that he occasionally dabbles in the black market of stolen books and manuscripts. Mercer Mann is a young novelist with a severe case of writer’s block who has recently been laid off from her teaching position. She is approached by an elegant, mysterious woman working for an even more mysterious company. A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends, ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets." Read to find out what happens!
