Read anything good lately? I’ve recently joined a second book club because I love to read so much. I’m always looking for new books and an excuse to drink wine and talk about them.

So I’ve been putting together a list to share with you guys from my want-to-read list on Good Reads. These all come highly recommended either by me, a friend or ratings on Good Reads & Amazon! Got anything to add? Comment and let me know!

A Fall of Marigolds– I just read this one for our book club tonight and it’s the only one on this list I’ve actually read so far but it was still on my want-to-read list and is going to be a great discussion so I had to share it. This book follows two women who live 100 years apart. Both are in NYC and havelived through tragedies (9-11 being one, the other being a fire in NYC that happened almost a century before). I know we’ll have some interesting discussions over this one.

Night Circus– there has been serious fanfare surrounding this book lately. I feel like every time I click on Instagram or Facebook, someone else I know is reading it. It has almost 5 out of 5 stars and I’ll be reading it soon.

The Memory Box– a woman Googles herself and finds out she has a whole history she doesn’t remember. Intriguing. Recommended by a friend on Good Reads.

When the Moon is Low– this is a more recent publication by the same author who wrote The Pearl that Broke It’s Shell, which was a phenomenal read about life as a woman in the middle East. I’m looking forward to reading this book by her too.

November 9 – to be honest, the write up about this book doesn’t sound all that compelling to me. A cross-country romance with a plot twist? But it has FIVE out of five stars from a huge amount of reviewers. I never see that. And several friends have loved it. So I’ll be going with the masses and reading this one at some point too.

Luckiest Girl Alive – this one’s a thriller that has been compared to The Girl On the Train and Gone Girl, both of which were compelling reads. I added this to my wish list after seeing a friend rave about it on Instagram.

When Breath Becomes Air– is actually ON my other book club’s reading list for next month so I’ll be downloading this soon too. I’ve heard a lot of buzz surrounding this novel as well and this book and the next one are the two non-fiction books on my list today.

Same Kind of Different As Me– from one reviewer’s comment, It is the true, but almost unbelievable story of three very different people whose lives come together in a way that can only be explained as “God ordained”. 4.5 out of five stars from over 2000 people on Amazon.

The Knife of Never Letting Go – I always gotta throw one of my fantasy/future fiction books into the mix. This is supposedly a different plot than the usual YA that’s on the market these days (vampires/werewolves, etc) and has phenomenal reviews.
