“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
There are a lot of great books to look forward to in the next few months, and while it was not a simple task I did narrow it down to the top six I am most excited to get my hands on. In no particular order, here are the top six books on my fall reading list: 🙂
Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood (October 11th)
This is the next release in the Shakespeare Hogarth series, with Margaret Atwood taking on a modern retelling of The Tempest.
“When Felix is deposed as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival by his devious assistant and longtime enemy, his production of The Tempest is canceled and he is heartbroken. Reduced to a life of exile in rural southern Ontario—accompanied only by his fantasy daughter, Miranda, who died twelve years ago—Felix devises a plan for retribution.”
Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (October 25th)
Silvia Moreno-Garcia is the author of one of my absolute favourite books of 2015, Signal to Noise so anything she releases is a must-read for me. Her new book is described as a YA paranormal thriller where “vampires, humans, cops, and gangsters collide in the dark streets of Mexico City.”
The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon (November 1st)
“The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?”
This is the new release from the author of Everything, Everything. It is a novel about fate, which tells the story of Natasha and Daniel who meet under unusual circumstances. I very much enjoyed Nicola Yoon’s debut novel and look forward to reading more of her work. Continue reading “Most Anticipated Fall Book Releases”
There are so many interesting books coming out over the summer months, which I’m very much looking forward to. Each month is full of great releases, so I thought I would break it down and share what books have caught my attention. These are my most anticipated releases for the month of June:
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler
A modern take on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, Vinegar Girl tells the story of Kate who feels stuck running the house of her offbeat scientist father. When his brilliant lab assistant may be deported, he concocts a crazy plan to enable him to stay and will need Kate’s help to do it.

Another interesting love story from an author that has brought us so many great summer reads. One True Loves tells the story of a woman who has to choose between a husband she thought was dead and her new fiancé who helped her heal after the loss.
Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North
A choose your own path adventure!
“What if Romeo never met Juliet? What if Juliet got really buff instead of moping around the castle all day? What if they teamed up to take over Verona with robot suits?” I want to know the answers to those questions. 🙂

Irene is sent on a mission to retrieve a book of Grimm’s Fairy Tales in an alternate London that is infested with chaos, and along with her assistant Kai she is thrown into a dangerous adventure.
