Fall Books on My Radar

Fall Reading 2016 // Books on my radar // Photo by The Everygirl{ via }

With fall in full swing, I’m secretly excited to start spending a little more time indoors curled up with a good book. While I always appreciate a juicy beach read and use my summer travels to read as much as possible, there’s something about the colder months that gets me reading voraciously.

I’d love to start a virtual book club but in the meantime, thought I’d start by sharing the my fall reading list — a mix of what I’ve read recently and what I’m looking forward to reading soon. I’d love to hear what books are topping your reading list, too!

Recently Read

Dancing with the Tiger by Lili Wright
This came recommended by a friend and I tore through it. I liked that it was a bit of an unexpected storyline–including meth addicts and Mexican masks!–but was still a fairly easy read.

After You by Jojo Moyes
I was a total sucker for Before You {including the movie!} and just wrapped up the sequel. I can’t say I liked it better, but it took on a totally different direction than expected and I was glad to see Clarke’s story continue. I’m curious now if there will be a third… or am I just starting rumors?

The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street by Susan Jane Gilman
The detail and depth of storytelling in this immigrant-turned-mogul plot line made me think it could’ve been a memoir but it wasn’t! I don’t think I’ve ever felt so conflicted about the lead character, but I really enjoyed the writing style and the entire {fictional} story.

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanthi
A must, must, MUST read. So sad, deeply moving but yet poignant and thoughtful. It’s true story about facing our own mortality and making life worth living. It sounds heavy and it is {not exactly a beach read}, but I could not recommend it more.

Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple
I LOVE love LOVED Maria Semple’s book, Where’d You Go Bernadette for it’s quirkiness {and who am I kidding, for the cover art} and cannot wait to read her latest book, which just came out this month.

Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed
When I read Wild, I had no idea that Cheryl Strayed had an illustrious past as a writer and columnist; I admit to being on the bandwagon. This book chronicles some of her advice columns from her time writing as “Dear Sugar.”

Winter Storms by Elin Hilderbrand
Elin is a go-to for fun, easy summer reads so throwing her latest book into the mix in another season would be nice. The only problem is this one is the culmination of a trilogy {with Winter Street and Winter Stroll} so it’s a bit of a commitment.

The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick
With all that hard things we’re coping with in this world {and especially this country}, sometimes you crave a sweet, simple story to warm your heart. This sounds like it’ll hit that spot.

Basically anything by Lianne Morarity
Her books keep popping up in my social feeds and in conversation. I’m mostly stuck because I don’t know which of her many chart-topping books to start with. Do you have any recommendations??
