October TBR (aka: Hopefuls)

Another month, another TBR!

*** Talking To Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don’t Know by Malcolm Gladwell (Little Brown) – Pub Date: September 10, 2019

I listened to Gladwell on The Bill Simmons Podcast (thank you, Sarah, for the recommendation) and immediately moved this book up on my TBR.

The Sweetest Fruits by Monique Truong (Viking) – Pub Date: September 3, 2019

I have loved all my subscription picks from Book Are Magic so far, so why not?

The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall (Simon & Schuster) – Pub Date: August 13. 2019

This is my pick for my #HWRbooks buddy read. I’d love to have you join! Also, Katie, Susie, Sarah and Catherine loved it, and since they’re my #bookishtwins, I’m in!

How To Make Friends With the Dark by Kathleen Glasgow (Delacorte Press) – Pub Date: April 9, 2019

Ashley Spivey said this one portrays grief well, so I immediately bought it. It’s taken me awhile to pick up because I’m worried about my emotions, but I think it’s time.

Stars of Alabama by Sean Dietrich (Thomas Nelson) – Pub Date: July 9, 2019

From my Bookshelf Subscription a few months ago, I really want to get to this one! It looks so good!

*** Cantoras by Carolina De Robertis (Knopf) – Pub Date: September 3, 2019

Lupita raved about this one so I listened to the The Reading Women podcast with the author and immediately knew I had to read it! I cannot wait!

The Dutch House by Ann Patchett (Harper) – Pub Date: September 24, 2019

You’re living under a rock if you haven’t heard about this one. And I have yet to see a meh or negative review, so I had to pre-order this one! This book is the followup to the book that’s taken the world by storm, The Handmaid’s Tale! Also, after the Amazon fiasco, I had to buy it from and independent bookstore (shout out to Tattered Covered Bookstore) to help its sales!

The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware (Simon & Schuster) – Pub Date: August 6, 2019

The book I’m the most leery about this month. Ware can be hit or miss for me, so I initially passed on this one. But I keep seeing amazing reviews, so I decided to give it a shot!
