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 Flynn
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…)
Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson
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.
