My list of books I want to read keeps getting longer and longer! There are just so many books that have peeked my interest. I am hoping with a little more down time now that summer is over I will be able to get down to business.
- Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan
This recently was made into a movie. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but since I try to read the book before I see the movie, I need to get on it. Plus it is part of a trilogy and I just love when I can continue the story with the characters I have already grown to love.
- Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz
Again this is the start of a series so that scores points for me. I read a description that said something about liking this book if you liked Twilight and Divergent. I loved both those series, so I was sold immediately. Teen fiction is just something I don’t seem to ever tire of. I just checked this book out from the library.
- Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave
This book was recommended to me by a friend who has taken quite a few of my book recommendations so I figure I should return the favor and give it a read. The book takes place in England during World War II. I was told it sheds a new light onto little known historical facts and also involves a love story. This description checks all of the boxes for something I would read. I just bought this book and will be reading it AFTER I finish Blue Bloods.
- Every Breath by Nicholas Sparks
Ever since I sat smashed into the middle seat on an airplane and sobbed next to a stranger while reading A Message In a Bottle, I have been a fan of Nicholas Sparks. Romantic and cheesy is ok with me because his characters have a little more depth than the average romantic novel. This book doesn’t come out until mid-October but I already have it on hold.
- The Tattooist of Auschwitz: A Novel by Heather Morris
I came across this book when reading a list of new authors. It is based on a true story and set during World War II. I know that is another World War II book, but I am a sucker for historical fiction especially that take place during a war. This book was just released in the United States but has been out in the UK and has gotten rave reviews.
What books are on your list? Have you read any that I have mentioned? What are your recommendations?
I am very into the Outlander Series right now by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve been reading ahead of the season premiere so I can compare. I’ve also heard great things about Nicholas Sparks so I should check him out.
I’ve been wanting to read the Crazy Rich Asian. I haven’t seen the movie yet too. I’ll check out the other books as well.
I’ve got my eye on Crazy Rich Asians. The movie looks hilarious but I always enjoy a book more.
These all sound like great books! Adding them to my list of books to read ?
I’ve been making a point to carve out more time for reading so this list is great! Thanks!
I’ve been dying to read crazy rich asians! Truthfully, I’ve been mega off my reading game lately thanks to a certain newborn 😛
I agree with you on reading a book that belongs to a series (when it’s a good one!). I like when you get to continue on with the lives of characters you’ve grown to love. I never want it to end. So, I would probably enjoy Crazy Rich Asians…didn’t know that it was part of a trilogy.
I love Nicolas Sparks’ books. he has such a way of capturing hearts.
Thank you for the recommendations. I would like to read Crazy Rich Asians before I’m going to watch the film. I love Nicholas Sparks too so I’m going to check that book.
I have not had the opportunity to read Nicolas Sparks books yet. I’m heading to Amazon now to check him out. Then I will check with our library to see if I can find it on e-book.
I just picked up 3 new books at the library. Each year, the sell off books to make room for new titles. So it will be a while before I can read anything new..
I have yet to read Crazy Rich Asians but I’m planning to in the nest couple of months.
No, I have not read any of those books. It seems like I rarely have time for just leisurely reading, but I would like to, considering the number of books on my shelves I have never read yet – and most of them have been there for YEARS! I tend to go for nonfiction books on a variety of topics, like spiritual or devotional topics, self-help, and science or social topics.
