We Know What New Book You Should Read This Fall

Okay, okay, excuse the use of the word fall but Buzzfeed think they can guess what book I should read so I thought I would try it out. I barely know what book I should read next especially if I was trying to make it seasonal so we’ll see. What do Buzzfeed think I should read next? 

WHere would you most enjoy spending fall?

OPTIONS: 

Seattle

Berlin

Poland

Sri Lanka

On a road trip across America 

New Jersey


I would definitely pick the road trip to America with a hella massive group of friends. I really, really, reallllly want to go to America and I think a road trip would be the best way to see as much as possible. 

WHat is your ideal fall activity?

Options: 

Playing Backgammon

Bonding with your family

Inheriting a house

Getting your life together

Meeting an old friend

Starting a new relationship

Being a part of a love triangle

Fighting for your freedom

Fighting for your survival


God that’s a lot of choice there! I think maybe sorting my life out? There’s a lot of things I need to sort out at the moment and maybe reading about other people trying to get their life together will make me feel better! 

Pick a number

208

304

352

320

368

272


whaaaaaa Buzzfeed? HOW IS THIS GOING TO HELP. Right, I’m going with 368 for no reason at all 

PICK some orchard apples


I picked this one? I don’t know why but I did.

Have some pumpkin pie


I picked this image for this question – once again no idea why.

andddddd the answer is…..

You got: “The Wangs vs. the World” by Jade Chang

Jade Chang’s debut novel “The Wangs vs. the World” follows Taiwanese-born American businessman Charles Wang, who must unite his children to start fresh in China after losing his fortune to the 2008 recession. The Wangs set off on a road trip across the country, all the way struggling to deal with their new financial situation — and each other. Highly entertaining and often laugh-out-loud funny, “The Wangs vs. the World” shows the often surprising ways hardship can bring a dysfunctional family closer together as well as what it means to be an immigrant in America today. Publication date: Oct. 4

^ So, there we go. That’s the book for me to read this fall – you can take the quiz here! Otherwise I’m off to add this to my Amazon basket.

    Ha ha… I tried the quiz – and got MISCHLING by Affinity Konary. Nope. Not in a month of Sundays. I don’t do reality red in tooth and claw – it’s why I like speculative fiction. And I’m certainly NEVER going to pick an emotional book set in a concentration camp about the agony of two sisters forcibly separated!!! So all that malarky about picking apples and number etc was a complete waste:)

    That’s a decent pick! I got Swing Time by Zadie Smith. Which is on my TBR. Is it possible they are just employing a cool marketing strategy. (To be fair both the Wangs and Mischling are in my TBR as well).
