September Reading List




September's rolled around extremely fast which means it's time to share another reading list on the ol' blog. I'm on a bit of a book buying blitz for the time being, largely because my TBR was getting out of control so aside from the odd essential purchase, expect to see a fair few library books around these parts instead. This month it's all about novels with a sprinkling of non fiction in there for good measure. Sometimes I go through a phase where I only want to read memoirs and then I go the other extreme and only want to read novels. The latter is certainly happening at the moment. Anyway without further ado, here's the contents of my September reading list..

You Deserve A Drink by Mamrie Hart-I really have Joan Rivers and Grace Helbig to thank for the discovery of Mamrie Hart. She's one entertaining lady and she makes a rather extraordinary cocktail, if her videos are anything to go by. You Deserve A Drink is presented as a book of boozy misadventures and tales of debauchery. To accompany each story there's a cocktail so if you wanted you could become the Julie and Julia equivalent of cocktail creation. Drink responsibly kids. I'm really looking forward to starting this and am expecting hilarity. 

Submarine by Joe Dunthorne-This book was recommended by Emma of ohflowerchild and I am so glad she mentioned it because this is easily one of my favourite reads of the year. Joe Dunthorne's narrative style reminds me a bit of Nick Hornby so maybe that's why I was so taken by this book. Anyway, Submarine tells the story of Oliver Tate, a British high school student in the midst of his GCSE's and on the path to understanding the complexities of the teenage girl brain, or in his case Jordana's mind. Each chapter is constructed as a diary-like entry so it's a quick read. This book is so hilarious though and at times a bit sad but the dialogue and Oliver's thought process were so entertaining to discover. I highly recommend you give this one a read if you haven't already done so.

You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day*-This book came to my attention thanks to the wondrous corner of the internet that is Buzzfeed. Felicia is a self-described digital misfit who is at home in the lands of Buzzfeed and Goodreads book clubs. Can you see why this one sounds right up my street? I think I'll read this one after I Was Here, because the tone of that book makes me think I'll need something uplifting to follow on from it.

I Was Here by Gayle Forman-I've read none of Gayle Forman's books despite owning two of them and having this one out from the library so I am amending that this month. The plot of this book sounds similar (ish) to All The Bright Places so if you enjoyed that then this may appeal. It also has positive reviews from Stephen Chbosky and Sarah Dessen which I'm taking as a good sign.

-What do you plan on reading during September?
