It’s nine in the morning, the skies is blue, the weather is cool, and I’m in an incredible mood. Here I am, sitting in my desk, typing in my laptop, while sipping a hot tea and enjoying the road view through the window.
Soo, in the name of autumn season (or can I say, knitwear and pumpkin spice latte season?), it’s time to start planning your Fall reading list! Fire up your bookshelf with the new and warming story that you liked. No matter what genre are or what kind of books you like, as long as you enjoy it, it doesn’t matter. Here my TBR list to enjoy while curling up on the couch or in the night while watching the rain dripping in my window.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Simon Snow just wants to relax and savor his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, but no one will let him. His girlfriend broke up with him and his mentor keeps trying to hide him away in the mountains where maybe he’ll be safe. Simon can’t even enjoy the fact that his roommate and longtime nemesis is missing, because he can’t stop worrying about the evil git. Plus there are ghosts, vampires, and actual evil things trying to shut Simon down.
I know Rainbow Rowell for a long time and loved her ever since! Her writing style is so smooth and can touch your heart in every possible way. I’m dying to know Carry On after reading Fangirl, so I can’t wait to read this book as well.
The Rest of Use Just Live Here by Patrick Ness.
What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life.
According to the phenomenal proverb, you don’t judge a book by it’s cover. However, for this particular novel, I do judge this book by this beautiful cover. I’ve seen the good review about this book everywhere and planning to read this as soon as possible! Also, this is a Patrick Ness book––so, I assumed, it must be great.
Made You Up by Francesca Zappia
Reality, it turns out, is often not what you perceive it to be—sometimes, there really is someone out to get you. Alex fights a daily battle to figure out the difference between reality and delusion. Alex wages a war against her schizophrenia, determined to stay sane long enough to get into college. She’s pretty optimistic about her chances until classes begin, and she runs into Miles. Didn’t she imagine him? Before she knows it, Alex is making friends, going to parties, falling in love, and experiencing all the usual rites of passage for teenagers. But Alex is used to being crazy. She’s not prepared for normal.
The cover is really gloomy but I hope this book is as good as it sounds.
Trouble Is a Friend of Mine by Stephanie Tromly
The first time Philip Digby shows up on Zoe Webster’s doorstep, he’s rude and he treats her like a book he’s already read and knows the ending to. But before she knows it, Zoe’s allowed Digby to drag her into a series of hilarious, dangerous, and only vaguely legal schemes all related to the kidnapping of a local teenage girl. A kidnapping that might be connected to the tragic disappearance of his little sister eight years ago. When it comes to Digby, Zoe just can’t say no. But is Digby a hero? Or is his manic quest an indication of a desperate attempt to repair his broken family and exorcize his own obsessive-compulsive tendencies?
Cute cover and sounds promising, what else I expect?
Emmy & Oliver by Robin Benway
Emmy’s best friend, Oliver, reappears after being kidnapped by his father ten years ago. Emmy hopes to pick up their relationship right where it left off. Are they destined to be together? Or has fate irreparably driven them apart? Emmy and Oliver were going to be best friends forever, or maybe even more, before their futures were ripped apart. In Emmy’s soul, despite the space and time between them, their connection has never been severed. But is their story still written in the stars? Or are their hearts like the pieces of two different puzzles—impossible to fit together?
I’m already half way through Emmy & Oliver, it was good so far, and I really want to finish it. Even the cover seems like a romance-cliche-love-story, Emmy & Oliver is more than that!
Have you ever read one of these books? If yes, what are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
