FALLing into a good book (or ten)

If you’ve been around this blog for a while, you probably already know that fall is the most wonderful time of the year for me. My two favorite holidays – Halloween and Thanksgiving – are in the fall. I love the crisp air, wearing boots and scarves, drinking all the salted caramel drinks Starbucks can make, and the opportunity for a fresh start. Shorter days usually mean more time in the house, which leads to more baking and crafting with Little Bit, more cuddles on the couch with Hubby, and more time under the blanket with a good book.

Baking is awesome, but have you tried reading?

Here are ten books (in no particular order – okay, that’s a lie) that are coming out soon that I can’t wait to FALL into this season!

* Cassandra Clare’s conclusion to The Dark Artifices trilogy, Queen of Air and Darkness

I am still obsessed with Clare’s Shadowhunters after all these years.

* Jennifer L. Armentrout’s The Darkest Star

I have yet to meet an Armentrout book that I DON’T like.

* Michelle Obama’s Becoming

I miss Michelle and am looking forward to learning more about her personal journey.

* Adam Silvera’s – and Becky Albertalli’s – What If It’s Us?

Adam Silvera is such a SMART writer. I don’t know much about his co-author, but I honestly don’t need to. If Silvera had a part in writing it, I’m reading it.

* Lauren Oliver’s Broken Things

Lauren Oliver writes beautiful stories. It sounds like this book will be no exception.

* Julie Kagawa’s Shadow of the Fox

I loved Kagawa’s vampire series and am currently OBSESSED with her dragon one.

* Lin Manuel Miranda’s Gmorning, Gnight: Little Pep Talks for Me and You

It’s Lin Manuel Miranda. Do I really need to say more?

* Busy Phillips’ This Will Only Hurt a Little

I loved Busy Philipps in Freaks and Geeks and am hoping for some good behind-the-scenes stories.

* Joanna Gaines’ Homebody

If I can’t live in Jo-Jo’s houses, drooling over them is the next best thing!

* Megan Shepherd’s Grim Lovelies

I’m all about Fairy Tale archetypes, so I’m intrigued by this latest spin.

What do you love about fall? What’s on your fall TBR (to be read) list?

  1. Okay I tried to get into Cassandra Clare’s series, but only finished ONE book! It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t grab me enough to stick around…but now I kind of want to know what I’ve been missing!


    1. Honestly, I barely got through her first book, but I had so many friends rave about the series as a whole that I decided to stick it out “for one more book.” Countless books later… 🙂 All of that’s to say, Clare got better.


Your thoughts are worth a Second Glantz!
