Hello everyone and happy Wednesday. I’m here with 6 Fall-Themed Good Reads for the approaching season.
The Fall season reminds me of rainy days and rich colors. Who wouldn’t love a good book, and a tasty hot beverage? I believe that nothing captures the season better than a mystery novel, or stories set specifically in Autumn. Here is my shortlist.
Fall 2019 Good Reads
Fever Dream ~ by Samanta Schweblin
SYNOPSIS: A young woman named Amanda lies dying in a rural hospital clinic. A boy named David sits beside her. She’s not his mother. He’s not her child. Together, they tell a haunting story of broken souls, toxins, and the power and desperation of family.
The Mothers: A Novel ~ Brit Bennett
SYNOPSIS: Set within a contemporary black community in Southern California, Brit Bennett’s mesmerizing first novel is an emotionally perceptive story about community, love, and ambition. It begins with a secret.
Night Film: A Novel ~ Marisha Pessl
SYNOPSIS: The haunting story of a journalist who becomes obsessed with the mysterious death of a troubled prodigy—the daughter of an iconic, reclusive filmmaker.
The Secret History ~ Donna Tartt
SYNOPSIS: Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality they slip gradually from obsession to corruption and betrayal, and at last – inexorably – into evil.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone ~ J.K. Rowling
SYNOPSIS: Harry Potter’s life is miserable. His parents are dead and he’s stuck with his heartless relatives, who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs. But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself: he’s a wizard.
Farewell Summer ~ Ray Bradbury
SYNOPSIS: In a summer that refuses to end, in the deceiving warmth of earliest October, civil war has come to Green Town, Illinois. It is the age-old conflict: the young against the elderly, for control of the clock that ticks their lives ever forward.
I’ve curated this list [mostly], with some titles that are new to me. The only book on this list I’ve read is Harry Potter, so I’m excited to round out my Goods Reads Challenge with one more book.
