Sharing My Shelves: Autumn Reads

Since I have finally caught up with my Winter, Spring, AND Summer reading I thought it was about time I shared with you what I will be reading this Autumn. These will probably take me up to at least Winter at the rate I am going.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
By Ransom Riggs
I have been eyeing this book up for years. I think it was the quirky, yet spooky cover that did it for me. I then saw the film tie in cover in Costco for something silly like £3.49 and I had to buy it. If I do go and watch the film it won't be until after I have finished the book. Always.

The story is relatively supernatural, so I will be sure not to read this one before bed. It is about a boy who suffers terribly from night terrors, so much so he ends up in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children were an onslaught of strange things keep happening.

By Curtis Sittenfeld
Anything to do with Pride and Prejudice and I'm interested even though I was a little bit sceptical of the premise at the beginning. I am not sure how well a modern day retelling of the classic story will hold up but, I am determined to give this one ago. I have also read another of Curtis Sittenfeld's novels; Prep, and I quite enjoyed it.

I actually picked this up at the airport before my Italy trip. What can I say? I am a sucker for trade paperbacks (You can tell I used to work in the book industry can't you?)

More Than This
By Patrick Ness
This has been on my to - read pile for ages. After reading the Chaos Walking trilogy a good few years ago now I quickly became a massive fan of Patrick Ness. I just love his writing style and I can't wait to delve into this one.

Let me know if you have read any of the above titles and what you thought in the comments below.
