Fall is the perfect time of year to settle in with a cup of mulled cider, a warm blanket and a really good read. Here are some recommendations, some with a little help from my friends, and a big shout out to my friends at Titcomb’s Bookshop in East Sandwich MA for letting me borrow some books for this blog!
by Anthony Horowitz
This book comes highly recommended by my bookish friends Christopher and his wife Erin (I haven’t read it yet!) The book is an excellent example of a classic whodunnit while also being a story within a story.
If you liked Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” you’ll like this!
by John Boyne
My buddy Lorna who is from Ireland recommended this book, and it has become one of my favorite books of all time. It’s a story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man which will make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit.
If you liked Kristin Hannah’s “The Nightingale” you’ll like this!
by Therese Anne Fowler
One of our featured “An Evening with An Author Event” novelists, this story introduces us to the indomitable Alva Vanderbilt and New York’s Gilded Age.
If you liked Jessica Shattuck’s “The Women in the Castle” you’ll like this!
by Fredrik Backman
Based in rural Sweden, this book is a coming of age story of a young woman, a hockey obsessed town and how one night changed the course for everyone. Riveting and very emotional.
If you liked Wally Lamb’s “I Know This Much Is True” you’ll like this!
by Jodi Piccoult
Jodi’s latest book is once again a hot-button topic, that explores both sides of the abortion rights in our country. I haven’t read this yet, just picked it up and anxious to dig in. If it’s anything like her last book “Small Great Things”, I know I’m going to love it!
If you liked her other novel “Nineteen Minutes” you’ll like this!
by Elin Hilderbrand
Elin’s latest summer bestseller explores a wealthy family, an impending wedding and a whodunit murder mystery. Great, quick read with a couple of unexpected twists!
If you liked Liane Moriarty’s “Big Little Lies” you’ll like this!
