Fall Reading List



It's the time of year that my reading list fills with good books and I look forward to time spent snuggled under a cozy blanket and a cup of tea by my side. Fall and reading just seem to go together as the days get shorter, the nights draw in and more time inside brings more time to read. My fall reading list is wide and varied with both new authors and some old favorites too. I look forward to delving into all these new books. Unless otherwise noted, these books are all available to download or purchase now.


In the tradition of books like The Paris Wife and Mrs Poe, this new book is of a genre that I really enjoy. It fictionalizes the life of physicist Mitza Einstein and the partnership with her more famous husband. Available on October 18th.


I have mostly enjoyed reading Oprah's book club selections and this historical fiction choice about a slave who finds a way to escape from her life on a southern plantation sounds particularly good.


Another book billed in the tradition of Gone Girl, but with excellent reviews. Hoping for a great thriller that will keep me up all night.


A cooking memoir with a twist; the author is Sandra Bullock's sister and this is the story of how she left her Hollywood life and tried something different. There are cake recipes too :-)


After being dissapointed with her last book, it sounds like Jodi Picoult is back on track with Small Great Things. It is getting very good reviews and deals with the difficult subject of racism in the workplace. Available on October 11th.


In addition to the books above, there are also some of my favorite authors with new books this fall. They are like old friends at this point, with characters I have grown to love. It's like catching up with an old friend.



Available November 15th


Happy Reading!
