I love to read all year round, but there is certainly something to be said for the fall and winter months. Curling up with a good book and some hot cocoa is just about the best thing ever. And if that sounds like a great Friday night to you too, then we should probably be BFFs. Here’s a few things I’ve been reading and what’s on my list for the coming months. I would LOVE to hear what you all are reading too.
Emma in the Night – Confession, I won’t lie. I am partially interested because this book has my name in the title. You got me! But it also sounds like a really fun thriller/mystery and I LOVE that genre now and again. I cannot watch horror movies without having nightmares (yes, I am 31, your point?), but I love a good thriller when it comes to fiction.
The Nix – This was recommended to me based on things I’ve checked out from the library. It’s got an interesting premise, really cute cover, and it says it was a bestseller so it can’t be bad, right? I’m gonna give it try.
10% Happier – I’ve got a couple of non-fiction books on the list as I love to mix those in here and there. I usually lean toward self-improvement or business-type books but I also love memoirs from time to time. This one sounds really good and has been recommended by a few friends. I’ll probably check out the audio version as I love to listen to non-fiction when I’m on long drives (like to Nashville to work with Elsie).
Moonglow – This is a new-to-me author and honestly the cover of this book really caught my eye, but as I read more I was blown away by all the awards and mentions the author has received. So I’m putting this on my list as I am more than intrigued.
What Happened – This is the other non-fiction book on my list this season. Elsie recently listened to this and she was telling me about it and it sounded super interesting. Looking forward to this one, for sure!
Here I Am – I am a big fan of this author so I am SO excited he has a new novel out. I actually can’t believe I didn’t hear about it sooner. I must be out of the loop. I need to get my priorities straight and check this out soon.
Into the Water – Another thriller-type book, which as you can see, is by the same author as The Girl On the Train. Looking forward to trying to figure this one out.
Diamond Head – This one I actually already read last month, but I loved it so much I wanted to include it so I could make sure to recommend it to you. It’s a little heartbreaking but a really fun and beautiful read.
The Book of Dust vol. 1 – One of my all-time favorite fantasy trilogies is the His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass) series. I wish the movies had been better received because I feel like this series is just SO good that I wish more people talked about it. It’s fun and totally thought provoking.
What are you all reading lately??? xo. Emma
