Fall Reads, Continued
Some eagerly anticipated titles will be released in October. Celeste Ng’s Our Missing Hearts, Dani Shapiro’s first novel in a number of years Signal Fires, The Last Chairlift, John Irving’s first novel in seven years, and I will gift The Complete Language of Food to a number of my foodie friends.
Can’t wait for these, just ordered Our Missing Hearts. Lucy by the Sea was so good that I’m having a hard time pivoting to a new book.
I have been so behind on my reading, but agree that there are some great new releases recently. On my ‘to read’ list are Lucy by the Sea, Carrie Soto is Back and The Ink Black Heart. I’ve loved the Cormoran Strike series (written by Robert Galbraith, J.K. Rowling’s pseudonym) and I’m sad it’s ending. Looking forward to checking out your picks above. Marcheline Isabelle
Love the Cormoran Strike series, and The Ink Black Heart is up next.
This book has been out for months, but I can’t say enough good things about Alice Elliott Dark’s novel, Fellowship Point. One of the best books I’ve ever read about friendship between women. It was almost 600 pages and I wanted it to be even longer. Great to listen to on long car trips.
(Side note: This isn’t Dani Shapiro’s first novel. It’s her first novel in many years. She has written others: Fugitive Blue, Playing With Fire, Picturing the Wreck, Family History, etc. In the past few years, she’s written four memoirs so this is her first novel in a while, but not her first novel ever.)
Gosh, the only question is which to read first….I think John Irving. Just reading Crawdads so should be a good pivot. I agree with Kathy about book hangovers.
I second the recommendation of Fellowship Point. Amazing story and characters.
