Click on the author to find more info also.

Here are 20 books for you to get excited about.


Fiction


September 29th
(eeee...one of my favorite authors and the book before this one called "Me Before You" is coming to the big screen this Spring.) I have read almost all of her books and I want to read all of them. If you are looking for an awesome author to fall in love with then check her out. She is worth it.

"After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes—a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do—revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected."


September 1st
This will be one serious book because those are the type of books he writes so if you want or like to read these type of books then this might just be the one for you.

"Purity is masterfully crafted, plangently insightful, a testament to the continued power of the realist tradition to address the complexities of modern life. I’m not being sarcastic. The plot weaves together a bunch of different strands ranging from the personal (a young woman’s attempt to find out who her father is) to the political (a stolen nuclear warhead), all near-flawlessly balanced and interrelated by theme in ways that are interesting to think about, and if it’s not exactly funny it’s at least recognizably comic.." -Brian Phillip www.grateland.com


October 27th
(He looks so debonair in his Goodreads pic you need to click on his name and check him out.)
David Mitchell wrote "Cloud Atlas" and last year he came out with "The Bone Clocks"

"Author says he was ‘ambushed’ by story which began as a collection of tweets last year, and ‘quickly acquired a life of its own" - www.thegaurdian.com


September 15th

"IndieNext names Fates and Furies the #1 Pick for October 2015" - Penguin
Another  book that was an IndieNext book was The Night Circus" and we all loved that one, so this one is sure to please.


September 1st
"Now his first novel — part of a two-book deal — is the inaugural offering from a new Simon & Schuster imprint and it’s longlisted for the Man Booker Prize." - The Washington Post
This is a book about grief and recovery.


September 29th
A suspense thriller that is suppose to be amazing.

“A stunning family tragedy and a hold-your-breath pedal-to-the-metal thriller magically blended by Karin Slaughter’s trademark passion, intensity, and humanity. Certain to be a book of the year.” 
—Lee Child


September 29th

“A tour-de-force first novel blisters with drought, myth, and originality….On each page [Watkins] spikes her novel with a ticking, musical intelligence… Praised for writing landscape, Watkins’ grasp of the body is just as rousing. Into the vast desert she sets loose snakes and gurus, the Messianic pulse of end times. Critics will reference Annie Proulx’s bite and Joan Didion’s hypnotic West, but Watkins is magnificently original.” –Kirkus

“At once beautiful and profoundly unsettling, [Gold Fame Citrus] sears its way into the brain, burning hot through the devastating journey and lingering long after the last page is turned.” -Elle


October 6th

This is book 5 in the astonishing series "Mistborn". We read the first one as a book club and I have read all the rest since because it is that good. If you haven't read the series then start on book one "Mistborn" and get reading.
