Books I’d Take on an Autumn Walk

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

I think autumn is the best season to go out for a stroll. The weather is perfect – it’s not so hot you’re sweating your way through the walk, but it’s not so cold you can’t feel your toes when you come home. It’s also a great thing to do before sitting in a warm café with a delicious hot drink in front of you.

After your walk, you’ve for sure earned some time to curl up with your book. If there’s a fire you can sit beside, even better. These books are perfect for keeping that autumn stroll feel going.

Review: Perfect Match by Zoe May

This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.

Blurb:

Can you ever find true love online?

Sophia Jones is an expert in all things online dating: the best sites, how to write a decent bio, which questions to ask and the right type of photos to use. The only thing she’s not so great at? Picking the guys…

After sitting through yet another dreadful date with a man who isn’t quite what she expected, Sophia is just about ready to give up on the whole dating scene. But her flatmate, Kate, persuades her to give it one more chance, only this time she must create a profile describing her ‘perfect’ man.

Review: Never Greener by Ruth Jones

This book did not fit into any of my challenge criteria.

Blurb:

In her unmissable debut, actress and screenwriter Ruth Jones shows us the dangers of trying to recapture that which was once lost and failing to realise the beauty of what we already have.

We spend most of our lives wishing we were somewhere else or someone else, or looking forward or harping back. Always thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But it never is. It’s still grass. Just a different patch of it, that’s all.

The past has a habit of tracking us down. And tripping us up.

When Kate was twenty-two, she had an intense and passionate affair with a married man, Callum, which ended in heartbreak. Kate thought she’d never get over it.

Review: Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes by Holly Bourne

This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.

Blurb:

Welcome to Camp Reset, a summer camp with a difference. A place offering a shot at “normality” for Olive, a girl on the edge, and for the new friends she never expected to make – who each have their own reasons for being there. Luckily Olive has a plan to solve all their problems. But how do you fix the world when you can’t fix yourself?

Tag Thursday: The Addams Family Book Tag

October is all about one thing – Hallowe’en. I’m not super big into Hallowe’en, and I can be a bit of a wuss when it comes to scary movies or books. One movie I do love, though, is The Addams Family. I love the dynamic between Morticia and Gomez, and I aspire to be as deadpan as Wednesday Addams. When I saw this awesome Addams Family Book Tag on Books and Hot Tea, I knew it would be perfect for some October blogging.
