Top nine summer reads PLUS September reading plans

Some of my summer reads were, in my opinion, spectacular reads. Now for the truly difficult decision…  Trying to decide on 

TOP THREE THRILLERS

What she knew” by Gilly Macmillan

Seas of snow” by Kerensa Jennings

I found you” by Lisa Jewell

TOP THREE MYSTERIES

Entry Island” by Peter May

The missing ones” by Patricia Gibney

The birdwatcher” by William Shaw

TOP THREE LITERARY FICTION

Lost for words” by Stephanie Butland

Malagash” by Joey Comeau

Grief cottage” by Gail Godwin

Honestly, it was hard to pick nine out of the twenty-one titles I’ve read since June 1st. Even then, I read a few that were so close that they almost made the list.  How would a person EVER pick ONE favourite book?  I couldn’t – I’ve proved that here.

For September, I plan to read the three I skipped from my #20BooksOfSummer challenge plus the oldest three titles from my NetGalley queue.

I hope to read at least these six titles in September:

A place called Winter” by Patrick Gale (354 p.)

The story of Arthur Truluv” by Elizabeth Berg  (240 p.)

The long drop” by Denise Mina  (320 p.)

Somebody I used to know” by David Bell  (434 p.)

The alphabet house” by Jussi Adler-Olsen  (480 p.)

The little Paris bookshop” by Nina George  (402 p.)

Six titles and 2,230 pages

I hope to read more than six titles this month, but hey…
sometimes life happens when you have reading plans.

    You did very well picking your top three. I never try that, I can never decide. I have three of the six you are hoping to read in September on my TBR so I am waiting to see your reviews. Happy reading this month.
