Fall is always an exciting time for readers as a lot of great books are released during this period. This year is no exception, and I decided to list some of the titles I can’t wait to put my hands on.
Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett
I am currently reading Fall of Giants, the first book in the Century Trilogy, an historical fiction that takes place during World War I, and it’s turning out to be an incredible read. Book 2, Winter of the World, covers the Spanish Civil War, World War II and the beginning of the Cold War. Book 3, Edge of Eternity, starts in the 1960s and ends in the 1980s.

The King’s Curse by Philippa Gregory
I’m a big fan of Philippa Gregory. I discovered her with the Wideacre Trilogy, and I think I have read pretty much all her books. This new release tells the story of Margaret Pole, a lady-in-waiting at the court of Henry VIII.

A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James
Marlon James’ previous novel, The Book of Night Women, was very well received when it came out in 2009. His new book begins on 3 December 1976, two days before a general election in Jamaica, when gunmen attempted to kill Bob Marley in Kingston. The story then spans three decades and is a fictional account of these troubled times.
