Now I know, I know, the term ‘adult books’ is very broad. It could be anything from a romance to a mystery, from a psychological thriller to a sci-fi. But today I want to give you a quick list of some of the adult books I am looking to read in the near future. Sorry if I’ve blabbed on about them before! (I did a YA version of this post on Sunday, check it out here)
Title: How to be Both
Author: Ali Smith
Release Date: August 28th 2014
I recently started reading Girl Meets Boy by Ali Smith since its the book I already owned by her, and have immediately fallen in love with her writing style. From what I can tell How to be Both sounds like her most popular (and the most interesting to me) book and I’m very excited to pick this up eventually.
Title: The Lies of Locke Lamora
Author: Scott Lynch
Release Date: June 27th 2006
I’m not positive I have mentioned on this blog that this was one of the few books I definitely wanted to read during 2016 – but it was. And I have yet to pick it up. Don’t get me wrong, I still really want to read it this year…But realistically I’m not sure if that’s going to happen. I own the first two in this series already and they sound so incredibly good, but for some reason I keep waiting for ‘the right time’ to pick up this book. I should write a post about that.
Title: The Goldfinch
Author: Donna Tartt
Release Date: October 22nd 2013
I’ll be the first to admit that I really know nothing about this book apart from the fact that everyone and their mother talks about it online. And in real life. Even my aunty recommends this book to me which is saying something since she barely reads anything (compared to me anyway). So I followed those recommendations and picked up a copy of this one. I will get it to it. At some point. I’m sure.
Title: Black-Eyed Susans
Author: Julia Heaberlin
Release Date: August 11th 2015
It’s the middle of winter in Australia right now (it’s literally snowing outside my window as I type this) and for some reason psychological thrillers are the only books I ever feel like reading during the colder months. I picked this one up randomly in town the other day, and it sounded interesting enough, so I am keen to curl up in bed tonight and start reading this!
Have you read any of these? I would love to know so leave me a comment below! ▲
