My Fall Reading List

There's just something about the fall that inspires me to brew a hot cup of tea, pull up a cozy blanket, and crack open a favorite book. I especially love getting lost in historical fiction, murder mysteries, and anything fantasy. For me, taking even 15-30 minutes to read before bed helps me relax, sleep better, and feel happier!

Lately I've also been really enjoying entrepreneurial books, but I find that I can't read those before bed because I get too excited and motivated to get stuff done! Which is obviously great, just not when I'm supposed to be sleeping haha!

Here is my list of books I plan to read this fall! Some are old friends, and some are exciting new finds. If you read a book off the list (or have already read it!) - let me know! I love discussing books, and would love to hear from you!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

I really enjoyed watching this movie recently, and had no idea it was based on a book! It's such an inspiring story, and I can't wait to visit the story again. 

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. Rowling

To my friends this is no surprise - I try and read the Harry Potter series every fall. Fun fact: I've actually read every Harry Potter book more than 35 times. Obsessed? Just a tetch. Much to my horror, Jordan hasn't read any of the books! Can you believe it?? And I married the man! But he does enjoy the movies, so that's a good start!

Fallen by Lauren Kate

I'm always interested in discovering new fantasy series, and this is the first book of six. I know basically nothing about the series except that it's young adult fantasy, so I have no doubt I'll love it! Stay tuned!

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

This series was recommended to me by a friend, and I zoomed through it when I was pregnant with Charlotte! It's going to become a mini-series in January (or is already available to my lucky UK friends!), so I want to read it again before it airs! If you get annoyed by romance like I do, the first book may be a struggle, but the second and third books are AMAZING and make the first totally worth it.

Original Sin by PD James

I love British mysteries - the Brits just know creepy better than we Americans do. I really enjoy PD James' books because the plots aren't so far fetched that nobody would have a chance at figuring out who done it, but there are also enough red herrings to keep me on my toes. I'm really looking forward to picking this one up! 

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier 

Has anyone read this before? The synopsis sounds totally creepy, and I hope it's not too scary for me! But with Halloween just around the corner, a spooky book might be perfect!

Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

I recently listened to a podcast that Rachel Hollis was a guest on, and she was so inspiring! I'm all about challenging myself to grow in any way I can, and am excited for anything I can learn from this book! Also Rachel Hollis was hilarious on the podcast, and I'm all about some snarky, intelligent humor!
