Fall is coming, and so is John Green.
There are a few books coming out this Fall that I’m super excited about so I did what I do best – I put it in a list.
Here we go:
Without Merit by Colleen Hoover
I can always count on Colleen Hoover to help get me out of a reading slump. Her books pull you in from the start and keep you invested until the last page. Usually they involve a romance, some twist from left-field, and more drama than a soap opera. Which I mean, I’m really into – I love the drama. So I’ll definitely be picking this one up the day it comes out.
This story seems to be about a girl who wants to escape from an abnormal and somewhat toxic family. It also probably involves some sort of ‘girl meets boy situation.’ (There’s probably a lot more to it but it’s good to go into Colleen Hoover books without knowing too much.) On Colleen Hoover’s official author site the book is described as “Poignant and powerful, Without Merit explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love and truth.”
The book comes out October 03, 2017.
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
There are definitely high expectations surrounding this new book from John Green. It’s been over 5 years since The Fault in Our Stars came out and we all know how well that one did. Pretty soon after The Fault in Our Stars came out John Green made it clear that it would be a little while before his next book and I remember being so bummed about that. Now that it’s here I kind of can’t believe it’s been over 5 years already – time is so weird like that.
In Turtles All the Way Down 16 year old Aza investigates a billionaire fugitive (and that billionaire fugitive’s son) in the hopes of receiving a $100,000 reward. And that’s basically all the little blurb tells us.
Turtles All the Way Down comes out October 10, 2017.
Origin by Dan Brown
Oh Dan Brown. You did us all so dirty with Angels and Demons. (You can read a bit of my thoughts on that one in my ‘popular books I didn’t like’ post.) But – I am willing (and kind of curious) to read another one of his books and give him a second chance. You know, on account of everyone always talks about him and he’s a number one best-selling author and all that. I’ve been in the mood for a good realistic mystery so I’m going to give Origin a chance. (You’re welcome, Dan Brown.)
And I could go through a synopsis of what Origin is about but just like every other Dan Brown book it follows Harvard Professor, Robert Langdon, through some mysterious journey. So it’s pretty much exactly what one would expect from a new Dan Brown novel.
It comes out October 03, 2017.
Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer
I was watching some book hauls and book recommendation videos on YouTube while doing some work earlier and found myself watching Zoella’s most recent WHSmith picks video. (The video was actually posted about 2 months ago but still.) And while I was watching it this book caught my attention.
In Letters to the Lost Juliet Young writes letters to her late mother and leaves them at her grave. When Declan Murphy finds one of the letters he decides to write one back, and he and Juliet develop a relationship through writing these letters.
(This book is already out but I still wanted to include it on my TBR list.)
And last but not least:
The Sun and Her Flowers by Rupi Kaur
I think almost everyone has heard of Rupi Kaur’s first poetry book, Milk and Honey (especially since it turned into a sort of meme a couple months back). The poetry in Milk and Honey was both beautiful and tragic – and the drawings accompanying the poems were lovely. And even though I loved Milk and Honey I am hoping that The Sun and Her Flowers has an overall more positive feeling within the poetry.
The Sun and Her Flowers is described on Amazon as “a vibrant and transcendent journey about growth and healing. Ancestry and honoring one’s roots. Expatriation and rising up to find a home within yourself.”
The Sun and Her Flowers comes out October 03, 2017.
