Back in May, Allison and I shared the 3 books we had planned on reading through the summer.
At first, I honestly did not think I was going to be able to read a book a month. I’ve always loved reading, but it was never something I was good at prioritizing. However, after sharing that post, I was determined to make it happen and much to my surprise I did it! Making time in my nighttime routine was key!
I read a book a month for June, July, and August. For June and July, I stuck to the original list, however, when I went to Michigan in July, my mom gave me The Nightingale, so I ended up reading that for the month of August.
Since I ended up being successful and because I want to continue this reading trend, I’ve decided to keep a book a month going through fall. Here is my fall reading list, my picks for September, October, and November.
My Fall Reading List
So The Nest was kind of my September book by default. I didn’t want to wait too long to start up a new book after finishing The Nightingale and my boss had given this to me at the beginning of the month, so I just went with it. I’m not that far into it, so this may be premature, but to be honest, I am not loving it. I’ll follow through with it though and keep you posted!
The Nest is about four siblings who are about to receive their joint trust-fund (i.e. The Nest), however, the oldest sibling has had a bit of a reckless streak and putting everyone at risk of not receiving it. Also known as, family drama.
The Southern Side of Paradise
Yesterday I also purchased The Southern Side of Paradise. It’s the third book in the Peachtree Bluff series. I had read the second book in June and since they are super quick, easy and enjoyable reads, I picked this up to read while lounging on the beach next week. I figured I’d finish it pretty quickly, so The Nest is going to be back-up.
Two books in one month may be pushing it, but I’m giving it a go.
Where the Crawdads Sing
Both my mom and sister have recommended Where the Crawdads Sing. Had I not picked up The Nest, I would have started this one this month. The book has over 21,000 reviews on Amazon with a 5-star rating, so people are clearly loving it. It is one I am definitely excited for and I’m looking forward to finally picking up.
The Velvet Hours
My friend Tasha recommended The Velvet Hours after I told her how much I loved The Nightingale. It’s another story based around World War II and will be my third book this year that takes place during that time period. History has never been my strong suit and (unfortunately) not something I have paid much attention to, however after all the World War II books I have a newfound interest and can’t wait to add another story in that era to my list.
