‘Sup guys? I pretty much finished all of the books on my past reading list; I’m just finishing up The Great Gatsby and am waiting for The Guinevere Deception to come out in paperback form😂 But I have an AWESOME reading list going on right know, so I thought I’d share.
I’m making pretty decent headway into my 2020 Reading Challenge, and I read a couple books that didn’t really apply to it lately, like The Rule of Four, which was pretty good. I just need to keep going hard because I have a few prompts that I have NO idea how I’m going to meet but… that’s why it’s a challenge I guess😂 Anyways, out of the three new books on my reading list, two pertain to my challenge and one is a “side book” that I thought it’d be great to read during spooky season.
I found out that one of my favourite authors, Sarah J Maas, who wrote the Throne of Glass and A Court of Thorns and Roses series, wrote a new book this year and I didn’t even know about it. I reallllly want to read this book, but I checked it out on my bookstores website and it’s only available as a German e-book right now😂 I could order it on Amazon, but I have a bunch of book store gift cards, so I don’t want to spend like thirty bucks when I could wait. So that’s a bit disappointing, but keep an eye out for it on future booklists because I WILL be reading it.
Ideally I’d like to finish all four of these books by the end of October so that I’m doing good going into the home stretch of my challenge. 👌These all seem like pretty awesome books so that shouldn’t be a problem. When I’m really into a book I just zoom through it, ya know? I’m feeling good about these picks and can’t wait to dig in to some great novels! Fall is a time for snuggling up with a nice hot beverage (or something with peanut butter in it because peanut butter works in every season✌️) in your cozy clothes with a good book:) Check out some of these reads if you’re not sure what to read this autumn!❤️
PS. The Guinevere Deception is coming out in paperback on October 13th, so when that day comes I will be picking it up and reading it ASAP👍
All The Light We Cannot See
This book has won multiple prizes, and looks like an incredible story. It intertwines the lives of two young people; a blind French girl from Paris and a boy in a small German mining town, both living during the Second World War. When the Germans occupy Paris, the girl flees with her father and one of the most valued jewels in the city to her great uncle’s house by the sea, while the boy is enlisted to help destroy resistance to the Nazi regime. The author tries to highlight the goodness of humanity, even during these troubling times. This book has over 500 pages, so it fits into my challenge which is great👌 I’m excited to read it!!
And Then There Were None
This is an Agatha Christie novel, and I’ve never read one of her mysteries before so I’m looking forward to it! I thought it’d be great with Halloween coming up. This one is about ten people, all with mysterious pasts, who are invited to an island for the weekend by a millionaire. But when they arrive, their host is no where to be found, and there’s a strange nursery rhyme framed in every room. When murders begin occurring that match up with the rhyme, the guests begin to panic. Which one of them is the murderer? Usually I’m a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to mystery novels, but I’m going to put my brave pants on and read this one. It looks really good🙌
I like philosophy a lot; I think it’s really interesting to think about the major questions in life. I have a few books on philosophy that mostly just explain the ideas of big philosophers, but this book is different. It’s a novel, and it’s about a girl named Sophie who begins receiving mysterious letters in her mailbox with questions on them like “who are you?” And “where does the world come from?”. She begins corresponding with an unknown philosopher who teaches her the ideas of many of the world’s philosophers, while receiving the mail of a girl named Hilde. To find out who this girl is, she must use her new philosophical knowledge. I thought that this sounds really interesting, because instead of just explaining the philosophies, this novel actually puts them into a story-like format. I need to read a book about philosophy for my challenge, and this is it!
I hope you read some of these novels too! They look promising and I can’t wait to start them🥰 See you tomorrow!
