September is here… The morning air is getting crisp. The foggy sunrises have started and the colours of fall are slowly making an appearance. With the days getting cooler, it’s just so easy to cozy up with that pumpkin spice latte (or just a regular coffee) and a good read. Oh and don’t forget the comfy socks!! 😉
If you read my last book list post, you will know that I always try to have an assortment of genres when compiling my reading list, which must always include a book that will teach me something. Because I just love learning new things.
SO… without further a due…
Fall Reading List
The Handmaid’s Tale
by Margaret Atwood
This novel is based in the future in the Republic of Gilead and is centered around the life of Offred. Offred is a handmaid living in a world that has changed drastically. Women used to have a life of their own, they had families and rights. But all that has changed. Women are no longer allowed to read and they are only valued as long as they can provide a child during an age of declining births.
“The most chilling cautionary novel of the century.” – Pheonix Gazette
This book has me very intrigued and curious to how it will end. I can hardly wait to dive in!
The Woman in Cabin 10
by Ruth Ware
A young travel writer, Lo, has been offered a great opportunity upon the luxury cruise ship Aurora. Her assignment is to write about Aurora’s maiden voyage. Everything is perfect…the weather, the guests, the ship, as they set off to sea. But before long, the weather turns for the worse and the young writer witnesses a horrifying occurrence. A woman being thrown overboard. Though everyone still seems to be accounted for, no one believes what Lo claims to have seen and no one recalls seeing this mysterious woman. What could have happened?
“The Woman In Cabin 10 just may do to cruise vacations what Jaws did to ocean swimming. You’ll be afraid to go out on the water.” – Star Tribune
Ah yes, I love a good suspenseful thriller. I’m sure the twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The Secret Wife
by Gill Paul
This novel falls in the category of historical fiction and tells a tale of past and present separated by 102 years. Romance and heartbreak, a Russian grand duchess and an English journalist, connected to one another through one of the world’s greatest mysteries. Past…Russia is collapsing, the Romanov family’s future is uncertain, and Tatiana and Dmitri’s love and lives are in danger after uncontrollable events occur. Present…Kitty Fisher leaves her husband and home in London to escape to her grandfather’s cabin in New York…here she will discover a family secret that has been kept for a very long time.
“Just magical. At the last line, tears rolled down my cheeks. Highly recommended.” – Louise Beech
Alright, so I have a lot of favourites…history and romance definitely fall in the favourite category.
The Secret Life of Trees
by Peter Wohlleben
Have you ever thought of the forest as a social network? Peter Wohlleben and Tim Flannery do. With scientific discoveries to back these thoughts, the life of trees and how they are much alike human families is explained in depth. A community that lives together, communicates, supports one another, shares nutrients and even warns each other of possible danger. The fascinating processes of life, death and regeneration are revealed.
“A powerful reminder to slow down and tune into the language of nature.” – Rachel Sussman
Nature is life in the broadest sense. It is beautiful, magical and utterly fascinating.
