Autumn is finally here to bless us with awesome books. Just like the summer, a few of these books are long, hot and weird – in the most ideal ways possible. We’ve updated our to-be-read lists with our most anticipated releases, and we practically cannot wait for them to come out.
Here are 8 books we can’t wait to read this fall:
Teenage misfits, Szu and Circe forge an intense bond after their meeting in 2003. In the interim, Amisa, Szu’s mom, known for her roles in various 70’s horror movies is slowly dying. A couple of years later, Circe has to generate a buzz revolving around the remakes of Amisa’s movies on social media, as part of her job. She lost contact with her friend years ago, but this job forces her to face memories of her past. Told with dark humor and a great new voice, Ponti explores the complexities of human relationships, and the impressions they leave behind.
Sally Horner, an 11-year-old was kidnapped by a workman named Frank La Salle in 1948. He pretended to be her father to the outside world, while constantly violating her in secret. Vladimir Nabokov released Lolita in 1955, a novel about a professor “seduced” by a 12-year-old girl. In The Real Lolita, Weinman compares the account of Horner’s lamentable life and untimely passing with the creation of one of the most popular books ever, arguing that one inspired the other.
