Top 5 Books You Have To Read

By Stefan

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!

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.

She immediately changes Cat’s daily routine by pulling her into the world of sex, drugs, and other vices. A perfect read for your summer vacation.
