September Reading

September has been a good month for reading. I'm happy to report that I've read some great books that are definitely worth sharing.

Here are a few of my favourite September reads:

At first I was a bit turned off by the subject of the book: the mother of a teenage boy who went on a killing spree at school writes letters to her estranged husband, trying to make sense of it all. But since the film  has been getting a lot of buzz at the Toronto International Film Festival, I decided to give it a go. It is really well written though not a happy story at all. I'm looking forward to the movie.

One of the BEST books I've read since last winter. It is a psychological thriller about a woman who has lost her memory and every day wakes up and tries to put the pieces back together with the help of a journal and a doctor. AMAZING
An interesting story about how one family copes with the pressure of a scandal. The scandal itself shows the danger technology poses to kids and it is scary how the kids in the story could be anyone's kids. 

I haven't started this psychological thriller yet, but I really enjoyed the author's previous novel Still Missing.

 So far I'm enjoying this mystery. A woman is led to believe that her son and husband have died but discovers they are alive and that her husband has a secret past - and now they are all in danger.

Now that all of the new fall books are starting to come out, I'm wondering... What's everyone reading or what's on your reading list for fall? Has anyone read anything amazing this month?
