(This picture is from our trip to Rocky Mountain National Park last September, and I so wish I were back there right now!)
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
I've been planning to read this gothic tale forever, and for some reason I had it in my head that I should read it in October. Of course, now I'm in Hawaii which feels like summer all year long, but I am finally going to read this book this fall, proper atmosphere or not!
Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I've decided it's time to jump on the Taylor Jenkins Reid bandwagon, and I've got this one on hold at the library.
To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin
I've got an advance copy from NetGalley of this historical fiction story set in 1880s Paris during the construction of the Eiffel Tower. It comes out in November.
The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman
I read the first book in the Invisible Library series last month and it was so much fun! I'm looking forward to continuing the story.
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
I've been meaning to read this for years, ever since I read and loved "The Secret Keeper" way back at the beginning of 2013. "The Forgotten Garden" is on my must-read-in-2016 list and time is running out! I feel like fall is the perfect time for Kate Morton's novels, which are always set in the English countryside and always involve long-buried secrets!
To The Bright Edge of the World by Eowyn Ivey
How gorgeous is this cover?! I love reading books set in Alaska and this one sounds amazing!
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
"Vicious" is another book on my must-read-in-2016 list. I enjoy Schwab's Shades of Magic series and I'm fully expecting to love this story.
The Queen of Blood by Sarah Beth Durst
I've been reading more and more fantasy lately and this new novel sounds so good! The intriguing cover is what got me to look it up in the first place. I just want to step right into it!
Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
This was a gift from my Broke and Bookish Secret Santa last year (I'm so excited to participate again this year!) and I'm ashamed to say I still haven't read it. It's another entry on my must-read-in-2016 list.
The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
This one's no surprise -- it's the book of the moment! I've wanted to read it ever since I first saw the blurb months ago, though. Now I've just got to wait to get to the top of the library holds queue!
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
I wasn't familiar with Towles until recently, when the hype began for his new release. Intrigued, I looked him up and added his first book, "Rules of Civility" to my to-read list. But I've heard so many great things about this book, and I've been wanting to read more fiction set in Russia after watching the BBC "War & Peace" miniseries, so I'm moving this one up the list!
The Likeness by Tana French
I read the first book in French's Dublin Murder Squad series, "In the Woods" just about a year ago now and I've been intending to continue the series ever since. A friend even sent me a copy of "The Likeness," so I have no excuse for not reading it sooner!
The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore
I'm so excited to read this new-ish book about the invention of the light bulb -- which sounds rather dull but this book promises to be anything but! Moore was the screenwriter for the amazing movie "The Imitation Game" and I'm sure I'll enjoy this novel.
Left over from my spring and summer reading lists:
I currently have three of these ("American Housewife," "The Royal We" and "His Majesty's Dragon") checked out from the library, so I'll at least be getting those knocked out soon, and I'll happily read "Saga" whenever my library finally gets it.
