If you keep up with most of my posts or you’re following me along through my Book Challenge 2017, you’d know just how much I love reading.
I love knowing what others have been reading and getting new recommendations. Finding the perfect book is just as exciting as reading it. Here is what I have been reading for October.
I Found You – Lisa Jewell
- A young bride, a lonely single mother and an amnesiac man all live separate lives but soon will become a necessity for each other. Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.
Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, 21 year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.
Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just that he’s playing the role of protective older brother. -GoodReads
Years of kept secrets, a missing husband and a man with no memory this book will keep you guessing until the very last page.
Adultolescence – Gabbie Hanna
- Growing up definitely has it’s perks but we all know how frustrating and difficult it can be too. This book by the hilarious Youtuber Gabbie Hanna, is filled with relatable and laughable poems on what it means to feel like a kid and an adult all at once. This book touches on the reality of growing up, mental health, isolation, breakups to downright funny experiences. You will instantly feel connected to the poems and illustrations and will want to read it again and again.
A Stranger In The House – Shari Lapena
- This book was too good to put down as I managed to finish it in just a few days. You’re at home cooking dinner for your husband when you receive a call that you never thought you’d get. You race out the door, jump into the car and end up in a part of town you thought you’d never visit. As you look into the dark, deserted building you brace yourself for the worst.
After that, you don’t remember anything at all.
Your husband has received a call that you’ve been in a serious accident. As you were speeding through a nasty part of town and lost control of the car. The police suspect you were up to no good, but your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend has been acting like she’s on your side but is she really? You don’t even know what and who to believe.
This highly suspenseful, twists with every turn of the page, will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time!
Something Blue – Emily Giffin
- A witty sequel to Emily Giffin’s “Something Borrowed” will make you think about friendships, revenge and love.
Darcy Rhone has always been able to rely on a few things: Her beauty and charm. Her fiance, Dex. Her lifelong best friend, Rachel. She never needed anything else. Or so she thinks until Dex calls off their dream wedding and she uncovers the ultimate betrayal. Blaming everyone but herself, Darcy flees to London and attempts to re-create her glamorous life on a new continent. But to her dismay, she discovers that her tried-and-true tricks no longer apply—and that her luck has finally expired. It is only then that she can begin her journey toward redemption, forgiveness, and true love. -GoodReads
