Originally, I started writing this blog post to be a part of the Top Ten Tuesday meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Alas, since, I’m a hot blogging mess lately, I didn’t get the chance to post it on the right day. Oh well! Instead, my dearest readers you will be getting an insight into what I want to read this season!
Ok, first off, here is a heads up, a good amount of books you will see in the following article come from My Reading List For: September 2017. Since I haven’t started any of those books so far, thank you procrastination and catching up on the last three months of Cosmopolitan and Health magazines for the delay. I’m scrapping my reading list for the first half of September and straight into the rest of Fall with my Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR List. You can say, I’m falling into reading. HA HA HA. Uhh..I crack myself up sometimes.
My Boyfriend Wrote a Book about Me by Hilary Winston– A witty collection of autobiographical tales about her misadventures in dating. Her writing this novel came straight after she discovered one of her ex-boyfriends wrote a novel about their relationship.
Don’t Worry It Gets Worse by Alida Nugent-In this book, Nugent documents the awkward transition from college student to adult. Since I’m way beyond the age of college student, and just now at the ripe age of 26 trying to figure things out, this is the book for me!
A Movable Feast by Ernest Hemingway-Hemingway’s memoir about his years as a struggling expatriate journalist and writer in Paris in the 1920’s. Published posthumously, it covers his apprenticeship as a young writer, his first marriage to Hadley Richardson, and the various characters he met in Paris, particular the Fitzgerald’s.
Bewitching Season by Marissa Doyle-One of the challenges in the PopSugar Reading Challenge was to read a book from a genre or sub genre you never heard of. Guess what, folks? Did you know that the genre “manner punk” was a thing? Nah, me either till last spring. It’s like Steampunk, but more focused on magic and manners. Think Mr. Norrell and Jonathan Strange by Susanna Clarke. Did you know that the Bewitching Season is part of this sub genre? No, well now you do! If you’re still confused I’ll probably be doing a post about manner punk in the future.
Yes, Please by Amy Poehler-After being heavily disappointed when I read Tina Fey’s Bossypants, I’ll be going into Poehler’s humorous memoirs with such high expectations I expect the book to graduate from Harvard by the end of reading it.
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling-After being thoroughly surprised how much I enjoyed her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? I look forward to cuddling up with her newest collection of essays under the glow of the jack-o’-lantern.
How to be Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life by Lilly Singh-For the last few months, I’ve been seeing How to Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life all over the place. I have a few things to say Damn Lilly Singh has some marketing team, you’ve convinced me to read you’re guide to be a Bawse. I’m not 100 percent sure what that really means, but I hope to find out.
You’re A Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero-I’m going through a stage of my life where I’m obsessed with making money (investing, working, selling most of my book collection). I’m slowly become Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock minus the whole Republican and casual misogyny things going for him. What the book is about sounds pretty self-explanatory.
The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less by Barry Schwartz-This was one of my scores from the Vacation Book Haul. Since I’m saving the travel memoirs from that haul for the throes of winter, I thought The Paradox of Choice seemed to be a good choice for fall.
The Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto “Che” Guevara-Yes, I’m really into memoirs this season, but doesn’t the thought of Che Guevara traveling through South America on the back of a motorcycle sound interesting? I’ll just wait here for your response.
What books are you planning on reading this season?
