Autumn Reading List (+ Summer Reviews)

(I’ve already finished Ten by Gretchen McNeil but I’m incluing it as an Autumn read anyway…)

What I Did by Christoper Wakling (4/10) – This was one of the designated reads for the book club that a group of my friends and I have together. It wasn’t something that I could see myself picking up of my own accord, which is one of the things I love most about being part of a book club. I started out really liking it, but it ended with a terrible anticlimax that made me change my opinion of the book as a whole leading more towards the negative.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (8/10) – I really liked this book, and I won’t say too much about it because it’s one of those books that the less you know about it the better it will be.

1Q84 (Book 1) by Haruki Murakami (6/10) – I enjoyed this but I found it quite obvious that it was part one in a trilogy. I didn’t feel like there was a complete story in the book, which was a bit frustrating but having said that I was captivated by the story enough to look forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides (10/10) – A new favourite book. This was such a beautiful story, so fascinating and incredibly well told. It came highly recommended to me and now I highly recommend this to you.

4 Thoughts on “Autumn Reading List (+ Summer Reviews)

  1. I’m so glad you loved Middlesex! I can’t wait to hear what you think of the rest of 1Q84 also.

  2. I just read The Great Gatsby in Feb even though I never planned to – but after reading A Moveable Feast and getting a bit of background on the book and even an honest admission by Hemingway that he was a wee bit jealous of it since it was so good (!), I’m so glad I did. Did you like it?

    You’ve given me renewed hope in Gone Girl – I had it on my To-Read, but saw some passionately hateful reviews so took it off my list. I trust your taste in books, so Gone Girl and I have a new date 🙂
