Read w/ Me: Fall Edition

IMG_3609

I decided that a bookish blog post is long overdue and since I am currently an ambassador for the Book Sparks Fall Reading Challenge, I thought I’d give you guys a little updated book list for fall. With that being said, I’ve been getting tons of questions all about Book Sparks and what exactly the challenge is, and basically they have just been sending me fall-themed books for the past month or so for me to read and share with you guys! I have really enjoyed this experience because I love finding new authors and so far, they have all been new to me! Not to mention, I am obsessed with true-crime and that sort of thing, and some of these books seriously have the best, spooky story lines. Along with the books from Book Sparks, I am going to include my favorite fall-themed books, so I hope you enjoy this post + comment some book recommendations below!

In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware:

I actually read this entire book on a flight home around Thanksgiving last year. It’s an easy read and honestly impossible to put down. I remember from start to finish, I was constantly wanting more. It’s a crime/mystery novel that takes place at a cabin in the woods so you can only imagine how spooky it is!

The Secret History by Donna Tartt:

I would consider this more of an advanced novel just because you really have to use your mind while reading it. It’s more complex but the story line is SO good and very compelling. It’s sort of a mystery/thriller.  It’s perfect read for fall!

The Night in Question by Nic Joseph:

This book was actually included in the fall reading challenge, and I have to say it stood out to me the most. It’s basically about an Uber ride gone wrong, and if that doesn’t make you wanna read it, I don’t know what will. I love the idea behind it because it’s so current and interesting. It’s definitely an easy + fun read for the fall time!

A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard:

If you’re someone who loves true-crime, then I highly recommend this book. This is a true story about a girl who was kidnapped for eighteen years of her life and survived to tell her story. She kept a diary throughout it all so it’s very interesting. This is a heavy topic and if you’re sensitive to that sort of stuff, I wouldn’t recommend reading because it gets very deep.
