my completed summer reading and autumn reading list

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

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, ya fiction at it's best! i started this one on the long drive to austria (we left in the evening and arrived the next morning), so i practically read all night. it's tender, it's realistic and the characters are very likeable!

A Scattered Life by Karen McQuestion, a book about women's lives, the directions they take, the choices they face, choices they cannot make and how they are all intertwined by family and friendship. very touching.

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?
