Autumn is perfect for catching up on your reading, as sunny warm days become only a faint memory of summer and the gray days with gloomy weather are upon us. Perhaps it’s because of the rain, but autumn somehow seems to be the perfect décor for reading good books, while curled up with a cozy blanket and a hot cup of tea. I have selected three books that will make your afternoons more interesting and will carry into a different world, get you tangled in the story and make you want more!
Reading list for autumn
1.Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal .
Maggie Hope has always been the smartest girl in a room. Passionate about mathematics, brave and brash, Maggie works in Winston Churchill’s war room as a typist. Set in the midst of WWII, the book conveys the energy of the brilliant prime minister and the determination of Maggie to use her skills for the war effort. An amazing read for autumn evenings.
2 . Sutton by J.R Moehringer
Based on real life bank robber Willie Sutton, the book follows the main character since his difficult childhood in the slums of Brooklyn and through his career as a professional thief. Moehringer managed to make Sutton a fascinating character, that captures the reader. Action-filled and captivating, this book makes for a great autumn read.
3. With or Without You by Domenica Ruta
Based on the author’s life, the novel is both inspiring and a harsh reality check. The dysfunctional family in which the author grew up makes you think. The mother, a tenacious business woman/ heroin addict transformed Ruta into a junkie, addicted to Oxycontin. Not knowing whether she wants to leave or stay, Domenica ‘s sanity was fraying. Even though it’s a harsh story, it makes you laugh out loud. Brilliantly written, the novel is definitely a fall must read.
As you can see, the books are different in genre, so you can enjoy some diversity. What other books do you have on your autumn read list?
