Autumn time makes me want to read more. I mean I am a librarian and I do read for work.
But funny enough you never read things you want to read but rather things that other say is popular or “in at the moment”.
I haven’t read much of my own interest lately so I thought I would make this list of books I want to read this autumn but also what I should read for work.
Maybe this will inspire so reading for you and maybe you have some great book tips for me?
Books I want to reads
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld – My fellow librarian told me about this book. Its suppose to be about the near future where everyone goes through a plastic surgery to look perfect at the age of 16. The story is about a woman soon to turn 16, Tally. But Tally’s new friend Shay isn’t sure she wants to become a pretty. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world– and it isn’t very pretty.
Tin man by Sarah Winman – Ellis and Michael are twelve when they first become friends, and for a long time it is just the two of them, cycling the streets of Oxford, teaching themselves how to swim, discovering poetry, and dodging the fists of overbearing fathers. And then one day this closest of friendships grows into something more.
Good in bed by Jennifer Weiner – For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for Cannie Shapiro. Sure, her mother has come charging out of the closet, and her father has long since dropped out of her world. But she loves her friends, her rat terrier, Nifkin, and her job as pop culture reporter for The Philadelphia Examiner. She’s even made a tenuous peace with her plus-size body.
Books I’m reading for work
All books I’m reading for work is not set in stone yet. Tomorrow, 6 september, I’m starting a knitting cafe at the library where I’m going to read out loud.
Every time I’m going to be reading 3 books, I don’t finish them but I start them to give a taste of them. Than if anyone fancy them they have the choice to borrow the books home with them.
Tomorrow I’m reading:
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy – Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson have always been very comfortable in her own skin. She like the word fat because it’s the real word that explains her best. One day she meets a hot guy named Bo and instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant.
The Mangle street murder by M.R.G. Kasasian – Gower Street, London, 1882: Sidney Grice, London’s most famous personal detective, is expecting a visitor. He drains his fifth pot of morning tea, and glances outside, where a young, plain woman picks her way between the piles of horse-dung towards his front door.
The music shop by Rachel Joyce – 1988 Frank owns a music shop and the book revolves around him and all the customer asking for the “right” music. Frank help everyone find not only what they want but also what they need. Its a great story with strong connections to music.
