HELLLLLLOOOO readers it’s another Tuesday and it’s time for another list of books that might take ten years for Lizzy to read. Ergh. These are books that are coming out in or after October so there’s a little time before you can get your mitts on them.
Also I’m tempted to start a new thing which is basically documenting my time journalling? I’m going to try a bullet journals, artistic journal, and just kinda writing stuff down. I’ll maybe let you know more in the future. For now books on my Autumn list (not fall – I’m British.)
Spare and Found Parts by Sarah Maria Griffin
Nell Crane has always been an outsider. In a city devastated by an epidemic, where survivors are all missing parts—an arm, a leg, an eye—her father is the famed scientist who created the biomechanical limbs everyone now uses. But Nell is the only one whose mechanical piece is on the inside: her heart.
Then she finds a mannequin hand while salvaging on the beach—the first boy’s hand she’s ever held—and inspiration strikes. Can Nell build her own companion in a world that fears advanced technology.
^ This just sounds bloody fantastic. I love books like this, slightly dystopian, probably kinda creepy, probably a little romance. I’m excited for this.
The Other Einstein: A Novel by Marie Benedict
I promise I will write less on each of the descriptions just sometimes it’s difficult not to write lots. This book depicts the life of Mileva “Mitza” Marić Einstein’s Wife. I think it could be super interesting.
If I Fix You by Abigail Johnson
This feels like one of your stereotypical YA books but the reviews are just too good to miss. The book talks about the leaving of the main character’s mother and the rumours and secrets that surround this. With a pinch of romance mixed in this looks like a stunner.
Be Good Be Real Be Crazy by Chelsey Philpot
I utterly adored Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour and apparently this a book for you if you loved that so I’m up for it. A YA road trip to remember and to be honest, Be Good, Be Real, Be Crazy is a pretty good life motto.
We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen
I’m really moving towards the romantic YA sweet story kinda books this post but I really want to have a really diverse list this week.
Growing up across the street from each other, Scott and Cath have been best friends their entire lives. Cath would help Scott with his English homework, he would make her mix tapes (it’s the 80’s after all), and any fight they had would be forgotten over TV and cookies. But now they’ve graduated high school and Cath is off to college while Scott is at home pursuing his musical dreams.
During their first year apart, Scott and Cath’s letters help them understand heartache, annoying roommates, family drama and the pressure to figure out what to do with the rest of their lives. And through it all, they realize that the only person they want to turn to is each other. But does that mean they should be more than friends?
The Sun Is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon
The Universe: Every moment in our lives has brought us to this single moment. A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true?
^ Okay maybe the list isn’t going to be so diverse but this is basically girl meets boy, with a little bit of science mixed in. I think the cover is gorgeous, the reviews are good and it would be a lovely little cosy read.
Dead Girls Society by Michelle Krys
Hope is sick of everyone treating her like she’s breakable. Sure, she has cystic fibrosis (basically really bad lungs), but she’s tired of being babied by her mom and her overprotective best friend, Ethan, not to mention worrying about paying for her expensive medication and how she’s going to afford college. And she’s bored with life in her run-down New Orleans suburb.
When an invitation arrives from a mysterious group that calls itself the Society, Hope jumps at the chance for some excitement. This could be her ticket out. All she has to do is complete a few dares and she might win some real money.
^ But I bet all is not as it seems. I love books like this, there’s a little danger, a little mystery and there’s excitement. I think this would be the perfect book to banish some winter blues.
Nerve by Jeanne Ryan
I saw the film of this recently and absolutely adored it although it did scare me a little. Not scared as in it was scary just very, very tense. It was a brilliant film and I really want to see how it was created from the book.
The Hermit by Thomas Rydahl, K.E. Semmel
Another murder mystery but this time it’s going to be solved by someone that is kinda cut off from the modern world.
The question is: can an old man who knows nothing about mobile phones, the internet or social media possibly solve a murder in the modern world, especially one that stretches far beyond the sandy beaches of Fuerteventura?
^ Pretty fricken cool no.
The Infinite by Nicholas Mainieri
I won’t put the wholeeeee blurb here but basically read it here – and then wait with trepidation like me for the book to come out.
I guess, there we are, ten books that I want to read in the Autumn. Let me know if you’ve read any of them or if there’s any that I’ve left off my list. Hope you enjoyed the list and have a fantastic Tuesday.
