Reading List | Fall 2017

Royce Rolls // I Feel Bad About My Neck // The Last Letter from Your Lover // Ginny Moon // Miss You // Little Women

I’m currently re-reading the Harry Potter series (it has to be done every few years), but know that I will be in the mood for something different as Fall winds down. I’ve also decided to forgo buying any books for the rest of the year, so rather than picking up new releases, I shopped my shelves instead. Some of these books are ones I’ve been meaning to read for years, a few I picked up earlier this year, but haven’t read yet and an old favourite.

Royce Rolls by Margaret Stohl. This book tells the story of Bentley Royce and her family who are the subjects of a hit reality show. After it appears her life may be changing, as cancellation is on the horizon, Bentley is thrilled, until she realizes that without the show, there is no family. Rather than leave her family crumbling, she decides to save the show. This sounds like an interesting, fun read and being that it’s YA, definitely out of my wheelhouse, but I think it’s probably time to change that.

I Feel Bad About My Neck and Other Thoughts On Being a Woman by Nora Ephron. I love Nora Ephron movies. Sleepless in Seattle and You’ve Got Mail are some of my all-time favourites, not only because of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan being the perfect on-screen couple, but because they are so well written. Since I love Ephron’s screenwriting, I have a feeling I will like these essays as well.

The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. Somehow I missed a Jojo Moyes novel from the past few years. I don’t think I need to tell you how much I love her well-developed plots and relatable characters. The fact that this novel features two women in different decades (1960 and 2003) just tips the scales for me.

Ginny Moon by Benjamin Ludwig. This coming-of-age novel about an autistic 14 year-old girl received a lot of buzz in the spring, and I had forgotten that I had bought it when it was released.

Miss You by Kate Eberlen. I have heard so many good things about this book. I am a serious romantic at heart, and this story about two people who meet once as teens and whose paths cross many times over the course of the next 16 years until they are brought together again sounds right up my street.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Little Women is one of my favourite books (basically in a tie for first place with Pride and Prejudice), and it’s one that I love to read around this time of year, and more specifically right before Christmas (probably because it starts with them celebrating Christmas). Plus, this beautiful edition is just begging to be read.

Have you read any of these books? What’s on your reading list this Fall?
