When I think of Autumn I imagine myself sitting by the fire wrapped up in a fluffy blanket and either watching a movie or reading a book. I love reading, I always have and I always will. Ever since the Leaving Cert I have found it very hard to get stuck into a good book. I can’t help but miss it. I miss the enjoyment I got when I escaped into a fictional world that my mind could vividly picture so much that it might as well be real.
So to combat my new reading phobia I delved into world of BookTube and have made a list of highly rated books to read. Today I’m going to share with you the four I want to read during the Autumnal season.
Autumn Reading List
Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas – This is Sarah’s first book in the Throne of Glass series. It’s been highly recommended by the majority of BookTubers that I watch. The book is about a trained assassin who has been offered freedom, but in order to get that freedom she must compete to find a new assassin. I’ve been wanting to read this for so long.
The Magicians’ Guild – Trudi Canavan – I bought this on a whim a few weeks ago. I’ve never heard of Trudi before or this series but it seems right up my street. My favourite book genre is definitely fantasy. There’s an untrained magician at risk of destroying her city and herself due to her lack of knowledge about her powers. She must be found before anything happens. If this doesn’t say fantasy, I don’t know what does.
The Book Thief – Markus Zusak – I feel like I’m the last person who is yet to read this book. I’m after starting it and so far it’s very good. Death is sharing a story about a little girl who’s living in Germany during World War II. She trying to find herself and figure out the truth about the war. I’m really loving it so far.
The Redeemer – Jo Nesbo – Last but not least, I picked this because I feel like it’s perfect for October reading. A detective and his team are called in to investigate the shooting of a singer. But it turns out that the assassin shot the wrong man and the detective is caught up in a lot of trouble. This book is definitely one that will keep you on edge throughout. I have high hopes to say the least.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my reading list. Are there any particular books you want to read during Autumn?
