A Little Mystery For Your Fall

Fall is right around the corner (I mean, it’s practically here already) and I for one, cannot wait. During this particular season I prefer to read books with a little mystery and suspense to them. Below are some of my favorite past and current reads for Autumn.

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynnsharp-objects-book-cover
If you’re like me and you’re dying with anticipation for October 3rd to see Gone Girl, this book can help fill the time.
A young journalist, Camille Preaker, must return to her hometown to cover the murder of two preteen girls. While home, dealing with a mother she hardly gets a along with, and a half sister she barely knows, Camille begins to identify with the victims…A slightly disturbing read, but completely enthralling. (And no doubt will be made in to a movie soon given Flynn’s record…)

Every morning Christine wakes up with no memories as a result from a traumatic accident. As she begins to keep a journal to re-read each morning, she questions if she can trust anyone around her. A slightly haunting book that sticks with you even after you finish.
The film version comes out in October staring Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth and Mark Strong.

On a lighter note (and a little more YA..) there’s this series. It’s Pretty Little Liars meets Gossip Girl meets Veronica Mars. What more could you want?
Expelled from her Upper East Side academy, Anne must finish out the school year at a boarding school outside Boston. All Anne wants is to get back to New York, but when her roommate is found dead in the woods near campus, Anne becomes obsessed with finding out what happened.
I’m halfway through the 2nd book in the series, and can’t put them down.

 

Anyone have suggestions for Fall reads?

  1. Cool list and your descriptions made the books truly interesting… might get back here to pick one when I have some time to read. I could recommend “Popular music” by Mikael Niemi, a Swedish author. It’s about a young boy who discovers music in a small village in northern Sweden. A very touchy and poetic story – involving also some drunk Finns in a sauna – that will make you laugh and cry at the same time. Extremely witty writer, you’ll notice already from the first page… 🙂
