My Autumn Reading List 2018

I like to read but never really seem to make the time for it, but Autumn is the perfect time to get back into reading. I've made a little list of the books I'm hoping to read this season. 

The Wife Between Us - Not my usual kind of book but the description sounds great! I love the kind of books that make you think you know what's going on and them completely throws you, so I'm looking forward to giving this a go.

WH Smith's Description
When you read this book, you will make many assumptions. It's about a jealous wife, obsessed with her replacement. It's about a younger woman set to marry the man she loves. The first wife seems like a disaster; her replacement is the perfect woman. You will assume you know the motives, the history, the anatomy of the relationships. You will be wrong. The Wife Between Us is the first collaboration between Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen; a gripping thriller with film rights sold to the creators of The Girl On the Train.

Wilde Like Me - I noticed that Louise Pentland's second book is being released and I haven't read her first one yet so this is definitely on my list for this season. I'm hoping it will be a light, upbeat read. 

WH Smith's Decsription
You'll never forget the day you meet Robin Wilde! Robin Wilde is an awesome single mum. She's great at her job. Her best friend Lacey and bonkers Auntie Kath love her and little Lyla Blue to the moon and back. From the outside, everything looks just fine. But behind the mask she carefully applies every day, things sometimes feel . . . grey. And lonely. After 4 years (and 2 months and 24 days!) of single-mum-dom, it's time for Robin Wilde to Change. Her. Life! A little courage, creativity and help from the wonderful women around her go a long way. And Robin is about to embark on quite an adventure . . . 

Three Things About Elsie - The cover of this book attracted me (I know, don't judge a book by it's cover) but when I read the description it sounded great. Different to my usual books, but great!

WH Smith's Decsription
84-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, she considers the charming new resident who looks exactly like a man she once knew - a man who died sixty years ago. His arrival has stirred distant memories she and Elsie thought they'd laid to rest. Lying prone in the front room, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light ...

Surprise Me - Sophie Kinsella is always an easy read, although I sometimes find her writing style a little annoying as she portrays her characters as so silly sometimes. Naturally, as a complete chick-lit fan, it's still on my list! 

WH Smith's Decsription
After being together for ten years, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, beautiful twin girls, and communicate so seamlessly, they finish each other's sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it's casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years... and panic sets in. They quickly decide to create little surprises for each other, to keep their relationship fresh and fun. But in their pursuit of Project Surprise Me - anything from unexpected gifts to restaurant dates to photo shoots - mishaps arise with disastrous and comical results. Gradually, the surprises turn to shocking discoveries. And when a scandal from the past is uncovered, they begin to wonder if they ever really knew each other after all...
Crazy Rich Asians - I'd never heard of this series until recently but it sounds right up my street. I'm looking forward to giving it a try!

WH Smith's Decsription
When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home and quality time with the man she hopes to marry. But Nick has failed to give his girlfriend a few key details. One, that his childhood home looks like a palace; two, that he grew up riding in more private planes than cars; and three, that he just happens to be the country's most eligible bachelor. On Nick's arm, Rachel may as well have a target on her back the second she steps off the plane, and soon, her relaxed vacation turns into an obstacle course of old money, new money, nosy relatives, and scheming social climbers.

What's on your Autumn reading list?
