The Bedside Reading List September 2017

1 Sept 2017

September 1st and Autumn has officially arrived. Over the past few days, I've noticed frost on the grass in the mornings and a definite chill in the air, I'm so glad my favourite season has started. After finishing the three books I shared in my The Bedside Reading List July 2017 post, it's time to share the next lot of books I'll be working my way through over the next month.

Us by David Nicholls
Available from Amazon, The Book PeopleWaterstones, WHSmith
I bought this book years and years ago after going through a phase of reading every book David Nicholls had written. I really like David Nicholls as an author, although I do find his endings always have a more negative result to the one I'd been hoping for. After looking at it sat in my bookcase for longer than I care to admit, it's time I finally gave Us a try.

Us follows the journey of Douglas Petersen, whose wife has decided she will be leaving home when their son flys the nest and in an effort to change her mind and bring his family closer together, he plans the trip of a lifetime. I'm hoping I'll love this one as much as the previous David Nicholls reads I've devoured!

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
Available from AmazonThe Book PeopleWaterstonesWHSmith
Yup, another one I bought many moons ago and neglected. I've actually picked this one up a few times to start, even reading a couple of chapters, but I have to be in the mood for this sort of read and so I've never managed more than a few pages in. I'm excited to finally give this a read though, as it certainly seems a popular one!

The New York Times number one bestseller (see, I told you it was popular!), it's Amy Poehler's first book, offering up an honest and funny account of sex, love, friendship, parenting and real life advice. Have you read Yes Please yet?

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman
Available from AmazonThe Book PeopleWaterstonesWHSmith
The third book in what could be my favourite series ever, The Burning Page is part of The Invisible Library series (which I reviewed in my Reading in February feature) and I've actually almost finished this one, with about 40 pages left to go. The Burning Page follows Irene and her assistant, Kai, as they fight to save the Library from Alberich, an enemy of the Library and determined to destroy the Library once and for all.

I'd love to know what is on your reading list this month? Have you tried any new authors recently or is there one particular author you always go back to? Let me know, and don't forget to add me as a friend on Goodreads to keep up with my reading progress!
