Fall is almost here, and I’m anxious for the cool weather to arrive. It has been abnormally hot in our area, so I’m ready to kiss summer goodbye. The cooler fall weather also puts me in the mood to curl up with a good book. Well to be honest, it doesn’t take much to put me in a reading mood. This fall, I’m excited to dive into a new lineup of books while enjoying a hot pumpkin laced drink. 😉
If you’re wondering where I find some of these books, check out my favorite podcasts. One of the podcasts is dedicated to book recommendations. So here’s a peak at my fall reading list in no particular order:
My Fall Reading List for 2016
The Passage-I’m cheating a bit here since I started this novel over the summer. It’s very long, so I finally caved in and purchased it instead of having to renew it at the library several times. I’m not a big fan of science fiction nor apocalyptic genres, but the character development is superb and had me hooked from the first chapter.
Rebecca-I heard about this book more than once, so I had to add it to my fall reading list. A young girl is swept off her feet by a wealthy man. The man’s deceased wife, Rebecca, plays a big role in their marriage (and story). I hear that it’s a suspenseful and mysterious novel that is hard to put down.
Before the Fall-If you’re an anxious flyer, like myself, do not read this book before or during a flight. A small private plane plunges into the ocean and only two passengers survive. I have a feeling this will be a page-turning quick weekend read.
Ordinary Grace-The year is 1961. Thirteen-year-old Frank Drum experiences a devastating summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms. Accident. Nature. Suicide. Murder. I can not wait to dig into this one.
Love Does-This book made my list thanks to my daughter. As she read it over the summer, she would share tidbits from the book that piqued my interest. I heard this book will challenge you to move out of your comfort zone. A great reminder that we all need.
Uninvited: Living Loved When You Feel Less Than, Left Out, and Lonely-Similar to what Lysa shares, I’m very guarded when it comes to relationships. I know that my reactions have been influenced by negative experiences in my past. I’ve heard this book is filled with wisdom and encouragement for those of us that struggle with rejection.
11/22/63: A Novel-This book is another one that’s not in my go-to genre. This is a historical fiction that has been dubbed one of Stephen King’s best novels.
Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic for a Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living-As I continue to find a balance between home life and business, I find myself drawn to books that reiterate a simple living message. With a busy season ahead, I hope this book delivers a much needed pep talk.
The One-in-a-Million Boy-When a book is lauded as magnificent, special and a perfect gem, it has to make my reading list. I have a feeling I’ll be taking my time with this book, and savoring every page.
What’s on your reading list for the upcoming fall season? I’d love hear your recommendations!
