Fall 2016 Reading List

KBB_fall_2016_reading_list.jpgI love hearing about the books that people read and what they like to recommend to me (whether it’s because I’ve snooped their bookshelves, because they’ve been saving books for us to trade back and forth, or because they were looking to unload one of their bookshelves).

I’ve been feeling like I’ve been in a little bit of a reading rut lately, so I decided for my fall reading list I would let one of my fellow book-ish friends dictate what I read. I asked my friend and photographer for the blog, D, to pick out things that were unusual, shocking or out of character for me. And of course when I heard that I hadn’t read one of his personal favorites (Watership Down by Richard Adams) he was shocked and disappointed, and demanded that I read it, like, yesterday.

Here are the other books he chose:

  1. Automated Alice by Jeff Noon
  2. Blindness by José Saramago
  3. The Clothes They Stood Up In by Alan Bennett
  4. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

What are some of the books that you’ve read at other people’s suggestion?

I love to read and I love sharing my favourite books with you. (For more reading inspiration, click here.) These lists are totally my own creation and I was not paid or perked to share my opinions with you by any author or publishing company. Full disclosure: I do receive a small commission from Amazon when you choose to buy a book from my site. It keeps this blog running and food in my dog’s bowl, but rest assured I’d never suggest you buy something I wouldn’t buy for myself. Enjoy!

  1. Hey . I have planned on starting a bake off a way to collab with different bloggers on a weekly basis. Would you like to become a part of this collab . It’s a great way to spread word about you blog and to get more readers to read you post.
    If you accept I will send you the details.

    • Believe me I’ve been there- the past couple of years I’ve barely read anything at all and this year I made it my New Year’s resolution to read more. I set myself a challenge on Goodreads and so far it’s really going well! I hope you find the time to do more of the things you enjoy in the near future.

    • Me too! I read pretty much anything and everything so my to-read list contains more books than I could possibly read in a lifetime. I’d love to know what you’ve been reading lately as well! :)
