Fall is upon us, my friends!! Time for hoodies, hot toddies, and good books.
Are you a reader? I sure am.
I am fortunate to have a job where I can listen to audiobooks and podcasts pretty much the whole day. So I can churn through the books.
Here are ten books that I am the most excited about reading this fall.
City of Girls
Like every other woman in the world, I read Eat Pray Love. Ever since then, I have found Elizabeth Gilbert fascinating. (Hello, Big Magic!) It was when I read The Signature of All Things a few years ago I became obsessed. I was excited to hear she had a new book coming out. That excitement grew when I found out that it was another sprawling epic story about a fascinating woman.
I am both excited and terrified of this book. Excited because I have been mulling over the events of The Handmaid’s Tale since a read it years ago. Terrified, because what if Offred’s story should have been left a mystery. Either way, I am going to check it out.
The Lager Queen of Minnesota
A book about Minnesota families and making beer. What is not to love?
Everything is Figureoutable
I love Marie Forleo. So, of course, I am going to read her book. I preordered it that day it was announced.
The Nickel Boys
After reading The Underground Railroad a few years back, I have been on a mission to read everything that Colson Whitehead has ever written. His newest book which is about a horrific Florida reform school during the 1960s is sure to be another compelling read.
Sissy is a memoir written by Jacob Tobia, and I am so excited to read it. It has everything. Snark! Gender-fluidity! Glitter! Trans-inclusive Feminism! Old Lady Costume Jewelry! Dick Jokes!
The Wedding Party
I never thought of myself as a person that reads romance books. I was pretty stuck up about it, actually. It dawned on me (slowly) that I love a good RomCom, so what I needed was a RomCom novel. I found that last year with The Wedding Date and have been reading everything Jasmine has written ever since.
I’ll Be Gone in the Dark
This book has been on my list for years now. There has a been an influx of True Crime these days. We seem to have a fascination with the most depraved people that this world has to offer. I am not much different. I suppose, but Michelle’s utter determination to bring this man to justice is impressive.
This is another book that I have meant to read for a while. It “examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.”
Save Me the Plums
I have been a fan of Ruth Reichl for years and was excited to learn that she was writing a memoir of her time at the helm of Gourmet magazine. And like every other book of Ruth’s, it is sure to be chock full of recipes.
Now I want to hear from you. What books are you excited to read this fall?
