Autumn Reading List

I love reading. Always have. My mum isn’t very fond of reading and she didn’t want me to be like her so she bought me tons of books from a very young age. My living room, bedroom and my sister’s bedroom are filled with books my mum got us. 
What I find interesting about the book collection my mum put up for me is that the books are completely different from one another in terms of genres. From encyclopedias to history books, to romances to DIY books, I have it all. I’m very glad my mum did this though. Literature became a huge part of my life because of her, so much so that I’m studying English and Spanish Lit in Uni. 
I don’t know if it is because of Halloween but I love reading eerie and mysterious books during Autumn. Truth is, I love reading those kinds of books all year -round but the urge is even stronger during this season. As I said, I think it’s Halloween’s fault!
With that being said, here are my top three picks for this autumn.

Across America a mysterious disease is turning ordinary people into raving, paranoid murderers who inflict brutal horrors on strangers, themselves, and even their own families. 

Working under the government’s shroud of secrecy, CIA operative Dew Phillips crisscrosses the country trying in vain to capture a live victim. With only decomposing corpses for clues, CDC epidemiologist Margaret Montoya races to analyze the science behind this deadly contagion. She discovers that these killers all have one thing in common – they’ve been contaminated by a bioengineered parasite, shaped by a complexity far beyond the limits of known science.

Meanwhile Perry Dawsey – a hulking former football star now resigned to life as a cubicle-bound desk jockey – awakens one morning to find several mysterious welts growing on his body. Soon Perry finds himself acting and thinking strangely, hearing voices . . . he is infected. 

The fate of the human race may well depend on the bloody war Perry must wage with his own body, because the parasites want something from him, something that goes beyond mere murder. 

Infected is the first major print release from Internet phenom Scott Sigler, whose podcast-only audiobooks have drawn an immense cult following, with more than three million individual episodes downloaded. Now Sigler storms the bookstore shelves with this cinematic, relentlessly paced novel that mixes and matches genres, combining horror, technothriller, and suspense in a heady mix that is equal parts Chuck Palahniuk, Michael Crichton, and Stephen King. 
Infected will crawl beneath your skin and leave fresh blood on every page.


In the last days before her death, Nel called her sister. Jules didn’t pick up the phone, ignoring her plea for help.

Now Nel is dead. They say she jumped. And Jules has been dragged back to the one place she hoped she had escaped for good, to care for the teenage girl her sister left behind.

But Jules is afraid. So afraid. Of her long-buried memories, of the old Mill House, of knowing that Nel would never have jumped.

And most of all she’s afraid of the water, and the place they call the Drowning Pool . . .
