Whether you’re looking for the latest editions or want to catch up on some old classics that are being resurrected thanks to television, you’re in good hands. In addition to getting your book suggestions off celebrity snapchats, we’d also like you to check out our list of books to read this autumn and not only be well-informed about the popular novels, but actually read some awesome books! Here are the top 5 books you have to read:
Book #1: American Gods by Neil Gaiman
In case you still haven’t read American Gods, you simply must do it this autumn. Not only is season 1 of a TV show of the same name based on Neil Gaiman’s novel out already to some stellar reviews, but the book itself if worth a read, not once but at least twice to truly grasp all the details and character development techniques that make American Gods one of the must-reads of any season! If George R.R. Martin says it’s “original, engrossing and endlessly inventive”, you know you’d be in for a real treat.
Book #2: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
If you want to be in the know and follow all the latest trends in books and TV shows, The Handmaid’s Tale is a must, unless you went to high school in Canada, of course, which means you’ve already read this Atwood classic first published in 1985. This dystopian novel set in the near future follows the life of a woman forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist dictatorship, and it tells a story of women subjected to severe misogyny.
Book #3: The Golden House by Salman Rushdie
Fear not, Rushdie stays true to his craft and doesn’t disappoint. This autumn give his The Golden House a try for a story about a real estate mogul who moves his family into the United States and installs them in a posh part of Manhattan. No amount of money or glitz and glamour can hide deep, dark family secrets. You’re in for a thrilling ride!
Book #4: What Happened? by Hilary Rodham Clinton
If love stories are not your thing this autumn, maybe what happened during Clinton’s unsuccessful bid for presidency in 2016 is more to your liking. If you’d like a peek behind the scenes, look no further than this Simon & Schuster edition on political intrigue, ambition, betrayal, and the turmoil that ensued. If you’re a fan of House of Cards, then What Happened is the perfect choice for your autumn read now that the dust over the presidential election and defeat has settled.
Book #5: Central Park by Guillaume Musso
Guillaume Musso is one of the most popular modern French writers and for a good reason! His books are thrilling yet relatable, and all of them have that French je ne sais quoi about them. If you’re looking for a romantic yet exciting autumn read, look no further than Musso’s Central Park. Without revealing any spoilers, it’s Paris meets New York at its contemporary best. A love story complicated by circumstance, Central Park is one of those books that you can get through in one sitting.
