Top Five Books You Should Read Fall 2014

I’m a lucky book nerd. In exchange for honest reviews, I get ARCs of books from publishers on NetGalley and Goodreads. This summer, I read over 25 books. Many of these titles hit the bookshelves in late August, others in September.

Check out the top five book you should read this fall:

 

F_NOVEL5)  F: a Novel by Daniel Kehlmann

“But there is a sense that no sentence means merely what it says, that the story is observing its own progress, and that in truth the protagonist is not the central figure: the central figure in the reader, who is all too complicit in the unfolding of events.”

272 pages, $30.00

 

MathewThomasBookCover4)   We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas

“She knew it wouldn’t be like this forever, soon she’d make demands on him, expect the world of him. She was going to enjoy this part. She was going to fill her heart with it enough for years.”

MonsterWife3)   The Monster’s Wife by Kate Horsley

Sweetland_Cover2)   Sweetland  by Michael Crummey

“The ferry sailed by the breakwater through a blear of rain. The ocean beyond in an uproar. The deckhands hunched in neon-yellow slickers as they threw down the hawsers and winched the gangplank to the government wharf.”
