I don't want to be that person, but how are we already rolling into September? Time to welcome in cold weather, cosy nights in and a lot more reading than I've been getting through recently (or hopefully anyway). This month is pretty much actually getting towards the last of my to read pile and so I'll have to go out and pick some more books ready for October, but in the meantime I've just about managed to find four books I need to get around to finishing.
1: The Time Keeper - Mitch Albom
I read The Five People That You Meet In Heaven by Mitch Albom a few months back and, truthfully, it left me an emotional mess to the point that I've put off reading The Time Keeper because I'm just not sure that I'm emotionally ready to go through that again. Having said that - I honestly can't even tell you how much I enjoyed the last Mitch Albom offering and so, although I'll have my tissues at the ready, I'm really excited that this is on my reading list for the next month.
2: The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
I've had this lying around for honestly years. I keep meaning to get round to it because I don't want to watch the film before I've gotten around to reading the book but, also, any book that has the Grim Reaper on the front tends to err on the heavier side. I've heard really good things about the film and the book for The Book Thief and I am excited to read it but death plays a pretty important role and I'm just not sure how I feel about that. We'll soon find out, I'm sure.
3: The Marble Collector - Cecilia Ahern
Talking about books that left me an emotional mess - pretty much every single one of Cecilia Ahern's original few books left me emotionally scared, and I quite honestly haven't read any since then; but my best friend recommended this one and brought it round and so it's made it's way into this month's to read list. I'm actually really excited to read this although I do think it's another one I'm going to need tissues for!
4: The Pleasures Of Men - Kate Williams
I keep meaning to read this, and I actually feel as though maybe I have read it before? But it's just been pushed back by books with more interesting covers (I know, I know). I know this is about a posh girl and a murderer, and truthfully - what more do I want from a book, sounds like my perfect fit. Maybe I'll get halfway through and realise that I have actually read this but there's only one way to work it out.
What are you reading this month?
