Book List, Books


September is the beginning of fall. The weather starts chilling a bit, the days looks like they are getting shorter. I have never been fond of the month but I realized it has a lot to offer if I remain on terms with it.

Like these books which many of us might be waiting and many of us will love to get our hands on. Below I include a list of five books to look out for, in this month.

In Real Life: Love, Lies, & Identity in the Digital Age by Nev Schulman

Schulman’s book goes over familiar ground to people familiar with the documentary, his catfishing story, and the series, but it’s compelling stuff, basically because of the big, pulsing, ever human heart behind every case of a “catfish.”

So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures by Maureen Corrigan

Corrigan, a familiar voice as the book critic for NPR’s Fresh Air, takes on the Great American Novel as written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in this lively and entertaining book. We can travel with Corrigan to the real West Egg and find out why this book resonates, nearly a century after it was written.

Smoke Get into your eyes by Catlin Doughty

A fascinating journey from recent college graduate to a woman who is doing a marvelous job demystifying death as it stands in America today.

The Human Age by Diane Ackerman

Naturalist and brilliant science writer Ackerman proposes that the human race is the dominant species on earth, and the decisions that we’re making are the ones that will shape the future of the world.

The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher by Hilary Mantel

You love Mantel for her Man Booker Prize-winning historical classics Bringing Up the Bodies and Wolf Hall, now watch her go wild as she wrestles with Margaret Thatcher for the duration of ten short stories.

So, on which one of these will you be getting your minds a bit “wordy” or adding to your TBR list?
