Book News: CNN’s Book Fall Preview


I may or may not have admitted to this in a past post, but I’m a bit of a news junkie. I may not always agree with how the news is saying things, but I there is a fairly large part of my day where I catch up on events and articles of the day. I’d like to think that doing so makes me a little bit more informed than some, but really, it’s like trying to read all the books in the world. I don’t think I’ll ever feel confident that I truly understand any one topic in being reported or going on in the world.

17262203Anyways, this week, CNN had a nice little article about the books they feel are worth checking out this autumn. (Here’s the point when cynics will say that it’s not really what the creator of the article thought was noteworthy, but which books the press releases made it easy to spotlight.) I have to be honest, I had maybe heard of only two or three of these books before this article. I won’t repeat the article, but I will say that the one book they list that I am now on the lookout for is Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam. It sounds fascinating, though I will probably want to read the other two books in the series before getting to this one.

Had you heard of any of these books before? What other books are ones to look out for this autumn?

What do you think?

    I think I could have predicted 3 of those…. Add Dissident Gardens to my TBR now as it sounds fantastic! Thanks hun.

    I’m not a big ‘news’ follower – tend to get my updates via Twitter/customers or my parents, lol!

      Yay glad you found a new book to look out for!

      I read the news so I can be prepared for any debates or with ammo for random facts of the day for small talk. 😛
