🍁Happy first day of fall! 🍁 To celebrate this and their first anniversary, we’ve asked Memphis indie bookstore, @novelmemphis, to share some of their favorite fall reads for this season!
Joanne recommends Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens (available now): “Set amid the beauty of the North Carolina coast, Where the Crawdads Sing is a story of survival, as well as a murder mystery that kept me guessing to the very end.”
Kat recommends Transcription by Kate Atkinson (available 9/25): “Transcription is an easy yet elegant read, overlapping some themes from Life After Life, her epic WWII masterpiece, folding in the easygoing nihilism of her Brodie novels, and featuring, as always, a female character who is intuitive, brilliant, and not always as she appears. Beyond its other good qualities, it’s a rollicking plunge into the vagaries of intelligence, counterintelligence, and counter-counterintelligence--in other words, a timely read in its own elliptical way. Atkinson fans rejoice!
Jesse recommends We Sold Our Souls by Grady Hendrix (available now), author of My Best Friend’s Exorcism — “This dark, funny novel riffs on the reunion tour trope and reads like a redemption song in a minor key. It’s a supernatural thriller about music, agency, and the push and pull between authenticity and the superficial in pop culture.” 🍁
Scott recommends Light it Up by Nick Petrie (hardcover available now; paperback available 11/6) Light it Up is Petrie’s third action-packed thriller featuring Peter Ash, a moonlighting war vet that’s been compared to Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. Bookseller Scott, man of few words that he is, described Light it Up as “really terrific.” Petrie will appear at Novel on January 21st in support of his upcoming 4th Peter Ash book, Tear It Down.
