Fall Reads!

Hey y’all!

Gosh, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Summertime always seems to be the craziest time of year for me.  It seems like there is barely an evening where my schedule isn’t jam-packed. I feel like I really haven’t had much time for leisurely things like sitting on the porch, sipping lemonade, and just soaking in the sunshine.  However, I’ve made a habit of reading every single night before bed – whether it is 10 minutes or a whole hour, I have been trying to give myself just a little bit of time each night to properly unwind.

Here are some of my favorites that I think would be perfect reads for the upcoming Fall season! Just imagine sitting on the porch, colorful leaves swirling in the air, while you’re cuddled up on the swing with a blanket, a cup of hot tea, and a good book.  Does it get any better than that? *sigh*



First Frost

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen

This book was unbelievable.  For the first time in a long time, I found a book where I found myself consistently picking up my pen to underline beautiful phrases and descriptions.  One of which I found so beautiful, I decided to decorate our house with it!

Butterfly Garden

The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison

Personally, I really enjoy scary movies.  One of my favorite things about Fall is making popcorn, grabbing some cider, and watching a scary movie with my husband.  If I could choose any book right now to be made into a suspense film, it would easily be this book.  It is a twisted, creepy story that I just couldn’t put down.  I actually blew through this one in two days.  So grab your popcorn, cider, and Kindle to get ready to read this gem!


Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz

So I stumbled upon the Witches of East End TV series on Netflix a couple of months ago.  I had just watched Practical Magic & it showed up under my suggested shows.  I love all things magic, so I decided to give it a shot.  I blew through both seasons of the show so quickly, and it just left me wanting more.  That’s when I found out that it was based on a novel! The TV show is definitely different from the novel, but they are both equally fun and exciting in their own way.  This book would be absolutely perfect to read when you’re getting in the Halloween spirit!

Starry Night

Starry Night by Debbie Macomber

This book is sortof a “bonus” because it’s not about Fall, or even Fall related (it’s a Christmas novel).  However, the characters spend their time in a cozy cabin in Alaska during a snowstorm.  It is the perfect novel for those crisp, chilly Fall days when thoughts of Winter are lingering in the back of your mind.  Plus, who doesn’t love a cheesy romance once in a while?

Do you have any go-to Fall favorites? I’m always looking for new reads, so I’d love to hear from all of you!

    I love spooky fall stories, but have to disagree on Witches of East End; I was not a fan of de la Cruz’s writing style. I did rather enjoy the TV show, though.

    Hm… Go to fall reads? I would say the anthology Unnatural Creatures, edited by Neil Gainan, is a solid choice. I personally enjoyed every story in it, finding them both creepy and well written. In fact, now that I’m thinking about it, I want to read it again!

    Thanks for posting!
