What’s on Your Shelf?

It’s time to change it up!

Sometimes, your brain needs a refresher. I usually don’t read a series from start to finish in one lump – I like to change it up and read books from completely different genres in between instalments to keep things exciting.

I recently finished The Drums of Autumn, the fourth book in the Outlander series, and I decided I needed a bit of a break. I read Lucy March’s A Little Night Magic for something fun and light, and have now moved on to Jody Picoult’s The Storyteller.

I have one of those Ikea cube bookshelves in my room and one cube is dedicated solely to books I haven’t read yet. These make up my in-between-Outlander books, so it may be a while before I get back to the series…

Here’s a taste of what’s on my autumn reading list:

1. The Goldfinch – Donna Tartt

2. The Casual Vacancy – J.K. Rowling

3. Edge of Eternity – Ken Follett

4. 1984 – George Orwell

  • I read it in high school and hated it. I’m now going to give it a second chance. Because I’m like that.

5. All The President’s Men – Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward

  • I bought this book back in June after meeting Carl Bernstein at a conference that was held here in Winnipeg – little did I know it would come in handy for second semester J class!

If you’re looking for other titles to check out, take a look at LaurenConrad.com’s Fall Reading List for tons of great suggestions. I now have to make a trip to Chapters…

As always, I’d love to hear back from you – let me know what’s on your shelf and what I should read next!

Until next time, happy reading!

  1. Based on the picture in this post I thought you were going to recommend reading ‘The Sword in the Stone!’ Haha (One of the best animated movies btw). I do love light and fun books in-between more serious reads as well. Some of my favorite ‘fun’ reads are often autobiographies. Shania Twain has a great one, same with Betty White! Happy Reading 🙂

  2. What I’m reading: half-way through and in my purse right now, “Tombstone Blues,” the 2nd book in Winnipeg fantasy author Chadwick Ginther’s “Thunder Road” trilogy. I’m on the list at the library for the 2nd book in Karl Ove Knausgard’s massive multi-volume autobiography, and I think my number is up soon, so I’ll probably be reading that next. I’ve started “All My Puny Sorrows” by Miriam Toews but put it aside for library books that needed to be read first. This weekend I read Tracy Letts’s play “August, Osage County” (for the course I’m taking) and the next play on my reading list is Carmen Aguirre’s “Blue Box,” for which I think I’m going to have to test my untested U of W library borrowing privileges, because it’s not at the the public library.
