I love the fall! The weather is turning, hot drinks are in the season and new books are hitting the shelves. It’s a magical time. Here are some of the new books I’m looking forward to this fall.
Jane by Aline McKenna
This modern day retelling of Jane Eyre as a comic book seems like it’s going to be great! The illustrations by Ramón K. Pérez looks beautiful and the story seems to show affection for the old text, but not being afraid to change things around. I love Jane Eyre, both the book and it’s title character and I am just looking forward to more time with her.
Growing up in a broken home in a small fishing town, Jane dreamed of escaping to art school and following the allure of New York City. When that dream becomes a reality however, it’s not long before she feels out of place by the size of the city and the talent of her peers. She soon discovers her place as she begins to nanny a young girl named Adele. Jane learns that in the world of New York’s elite, secrets are the greatest extravagance and she’ll have to decide if she should trust the man she loves or do what ever it takes to protect Adele from the consequences of his deception.
Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart
I loved her book We were Liars so my hopes are high for this one!
The story of a young woman whose diabolical smarts are her ticket into a charmed life. But how many times can someone reinvent themselves? You be the judge.
A Legacy of Spies by John le Carré
I love the Smiley books (The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), and since the last one was published in 1990 I’d given up hope for a new one, but here it is!
Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinized by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications.
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
I’ve heard great things about Celeste Ng, but not gotten around to reading her books yet, maybe this will be then one? 🙂
In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.
Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons.
Artemis by Andy Weir
I loved the Martian, I’m actually listening to the audiobook again right now, and I really hope this is as good. And it sounds good, I love scifi/fantasy stories following goodhearted people on the wrong side of the law (read Firefly). It would be great to have a fun, new story from Weir.
Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right?
So these are the new books I’m looking forward to reading this fall, how about you? Any new books you want to read on the horizon?
