so, it turns out i only read 9 books this summer. it's weird because i kept count the whole time but now that i listed them all, well, there're only 9, but that's fine. i know i listed some of them before but i just wanted them all in one place for myself for future reference. i'm not linking to any bookshops here, just copy the titles and feel free to buy/download/lend them anywhere if one of them catches your fancy. i read most of these on my kindle.
completed summer reading 2014
We Were Liars by e.lockhart, a perfect summer read, as it plays during different summers on an island off massachusetts. it's intruguing, a real page turner with a surprising ending. highly recommended!
Life Below Stairs by Alison Maloney, a non-fiction book for those Downton Abbey fans out there who want a little more insight on the lives of servants.
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan - i liked the idea of two people writing a book, and it was a quick, entertaining ya read. i have to say though, that the amount of f... words in the book really really bothered me (and from reading a few reviews i realized i'm not the only one to feel that way).
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion - just awesome! a must-read!
The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes - very different from "Me Before You" but i still loved it, i loved the historic component and found the story quite capivating.
The Vacationers by Emma Straub - a quick, light but entertaining summer read about a family vacationing on the spanish island of Mallorca
We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler - i downloaded this one on a whim because it popped up in my recommendations list and i was intrigued by the title. i was not disappointed! not as light as my other summer reading but still highly recommended, for any season!
for autumn, there are just 2 books on my list (i do want to get back to knitting, after all):
"Mr. Penumbra's 24 Hour Book Store" by Robin Sloan and
Little Snowbirds: A Love Story on Wheels by Erin Lehn Floresca, of which i downloaded a free review copy on story cartel.
any must-reads you'd like to share that i might add to my fall list?
