The temperature has dropped, and the nights are getting shorter. It’s been non-stop rain for most of the country. Super Thursday has been and gone (the book trade’s name for the hottest release day of the year, which saw over 400 hardbacks hit the shelves. Including, Zadie Smith’s Grand Union, Bill Bryson’s The Body,and Philip Pullman’s The Secret Commonwealth). Autumn is well and truly here, and MIR is back with our monthly reading recommendations. This month we’ve included a whole host of titles and genres, including poetry, non-fiction, and graphic novels. What better month than October to curl up with a good book?
