I really enjoy buying books but because i don't always make the time to read them I've ended up with a rather large TBR (to be read) pile. So I've decided that each season I'm going to select some and share with you what books i plan to read next in the hopes it gives me a bit of a kick up the bum and my pile with start to decrease, so here is what's on my Autumn TBR List.
Only Ever Yours by Louise O'Neill
I'm really intrigued to read this book as I've heard quite a lot about it and it's had some mixed reviews. It's set in a world where girls are no longer bred naturally, instead they are designed and trained in a school in the arts of pleasing men until they're ready for the outside world. The highest rated girls will be selected as companions; taking a husband and bearing sons, the rest - will either live as a concubine or a teacher. I'm really curious to read this because i think it had a really interesting storyline and I'm intrigued to see how the story plays out.
This is a Love Story by Jessica Thompson
I picked this up on a whim and i don't really know much about it other than what goodreads tells me which is.. "This is a love story. Boy meets girl and falls for boy - that much is true. But when Sienna meets Nick it's not the way it happens in love stories. It's because of a squirrel on water skis... She see Nick's dangerous brown eyes and thinks, Don't. Fall. Into. Them." I love a good love story which is why i picked this up, i really enjoy the whole boy meets girl kind of storyline and this sounds like the type of book I'd like.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling
If you've read my latest Recently Read post (here) you'll know that I've started re-reading the Harry Potter Series but I've decided to not read them one after the other. The next one i need to read is number two, The Chamber of Secrets - i love the Harry Potter Series, it's such an amazing storyline. This book follows Harry Potter in his second year at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban by J.K Rowling
After Chamber of Secrets, comes the Prisoner of Askaban the third instalment and follows Harry's third year at Hogwarts. I don't know why but the Prisoner of Askaban is my favourite book out of the series so I'm really looking forward to re-reading this one.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
I've never read anything by Sophie Kinsella but I've heard a few people say they really enjoy her books so when i saw this in a charity shop i decided to pick it up to give it ago. "Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?" I don't know what to expect from this storyline but it has some good ratings on Goodreads so I'll definitely give it ago.
Voices by Sue Mayfield
This was another charity shop find, i have no idea what it's going to be like but it sounded quite interest and it only cost me 10p. I have a feeling this might be aimed at a more younger audience than me but I'll still give it a read anyways. "Recently dumped by Jamie—her arrogant boyfriend—Isabel Bright hopes to take her mind off things on a family vacation on the west coast of Scotland. One day, Isabel spots an empty bottle on the shore. She puts her name and address on a note in the bottle and hurls it far out to sea. Back home, Isabel throws herself into rehearsals for the school play. Discovering her ex-boyfriend has been cast as a lead and wants to get back together. Against her better judgement, Isabel relents . . . but then she receives a letter from a stranger."
All My Secrets by Sophie McKenzie
I remember reading a book by Sophie McKenzie years ago; it was brilliant and it's a story that's always stuck in my mind, so when i saw this was written by her i wanted to give it a try. "The shocking reality behind a GBP10 million inheritance turns Evie Brown's world on its head. Unable to find out the truth from her parents, Evie ends up on the mysterious island of Lightsea, where her desire for answers leads her towards a series of revelations that threaten everything she holds dear ...including her life" I'm really looking forward to giving this a read as i remember reading Sophie McKenzie's other book and really enjoying her writing style and if i remember correctly it has quite a similar theme to this.
If you'd like to see how i get on with my Autumn TBR List, feel free to follow me on goodreads to track my progress.
