Fall is a little more than a week away, and since Lauren already posted her autumn to-read list, I figured I would too! I’m going to go ahead and not be as ambitious as she is, since I’m in school it leaves a lot less time for me to read (in case you hadn’t noticed the lack of posts from me). I’m going to give myself until December 21st, the official start of winter, to get these books finished. I can’t wait to get started!
1. (Finish) The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
I’m about two chapters in on this book and I AM SO IN LOVE. Every time I read it, I’m texting Lauren telling her she needs to too. There are so many things that speak to me in this, and it all just makes me want to change my life for the better right away. Need to finish, and possibly re-read.
2. Gemini by Carol Cassella
Partial summary from Goodreads: Enlisting the help of her boyfriend, Eric, a science journalist, Charlotte impulsively sets out to uncover Jane Doe’s past. But the closer they get to the truth, the more their relationship is put to the test. It is only when they open their hearts to their own feelings toward each other — and toward life itself — that Charlotte and Eric will unlock Jane Doe’s shocking secret, and prepare themselves for a miracle.
How could you NOT want to read that?! It gets good reviews and I’ve seen it on a few other book blogs too.
3. Friendship by Emily Gould
I smell another ‘two review’ on the horizon! This book sounds like just what I need right now: friendship, growing up and growing apart.
4. The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
I’ve heard such great things about this book! I keep reading the summary and reviews over and over so I think it’ll be the first one I cross off this list.
Goodreads summary: Girls started vanishing in the fall, and now winter’s come to lay a white sheet over the horror. Door County, it seems, is swallowing the young, right into its very dirt. From beneath the house on Water Street, I’ve watched the danger swell.
5. Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess
I feel like this is Sex and the City but updated, with girls more my age. I am an SATC addict, so this is right up my alley! It’s also much lighter than the others on this list so far so it will give me a good break in between them.
6. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
Lauren recommended this to me quite a while ago and it’s been on my Nook shelf since then but for some reason I keep getting distracted by other books. It’s the first in the series, so I think I will save it until last so I’ll be able to start the next book right away.
Partial Goodreads summary:
About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.
Well, there it is! My list of 6 to be read before December 21st. I’m confident I can do it and these are all books I’m REALLY excited to start.
