Fall is the perfect time to cozy up with a good book! I didn’t read all of my summer reading list, but I did get through a good chunk. I’ll post a review soon for you guys. There are a TON of highly-anticipated new releases coming out this fall and I am highlighting my favorites along with a few older books that I am determined to get to before this year is over.
Fall Reading List
- The Regulars: This book was released in August and it is already getting great reviews. The plot sounds interesting and you guys know I love anything MAGICAL! 😉 Short Summary from Amazon: Best friends Evie, Krista, and Willow are just trying to make it through their mid-twenties in New York. They’re regular girls, with average looks and typical quarter-life crises. Until they come across Pretty, a magic tincture that makes them, well…gorgeous. Like, supermodel gorgeous. And it’s certainly not their fault if the sudden gift of beauty causes unexpected doors to open for them.
- Orphans of the Carnival: This doesn’t come out until November but it sounds really good. For some reason even though I hate the circus, I love books about them. (Water for Elephants, The Night Circus) Short summary from Amazon: The extraordinary, moving, and unsettling tale of a woman, branded a freak from birth, who becomes an international sensation but longs for genuine human connection.
- Leave Me: This book is already on a number of must-read lists even though it just came out in September. The plot sounds like something many overwhelmed moms could relate to. Short summary from Amazon: A harried working mother who’s so busy taking care of her husband and twins, she doesn’t even realize she’s had a heart attack. Surprised to discover that her recuperation seems to be an imposition on those who rely on her, Maribeth does the unthinkable: she packs a bag and leaves. But, as is often the case, once we get where we’re going we see our lives from a different perspective.
- Hidden Figures: I wanted to read this book as soon as I saw the trailer for the movie, which looks amazing. I love reading books before I see the movie so I am putting this higher up on my priority list. Short summary from Amazon: The phenomenal true story of the black female mathematicians at NASA at the leading edge of the feminist and civil rights movement, whose calculations helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space.
- Light Between Oceans: Speaking of reading a book before seeing the movie, I have been wanting to read this forever, but the timing is always off. I put it on my wait list for the library ebook, and when it comes in I am reading something else. It has happened twice. So many of my friends have told me how great this book is. Short summary from Amazon: Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.
- I Know How She Does It: I read a short book by this author about how successful people start their day and I was intrigued when she mentioned this book. As you guys know, I am OBSESSED with time management and I am always trying to get more efficient at it. Short summary from Amazon: Many now believe this to be gospel truth: Any woman who wants to advance in a challenging career has to make huge sacrifices. But what if balancing work and family is actually not as hard as it’s made out to be?
- Think and Grow Rich: I love personal development books, so it surprised many that I have never read this self-help classic. First released in 1937, this sounds very similar to The Secret and I loved that book. Short summary from Amazon: While its title implies that the book deals with how to attain monetary wealth, the author explains that the philosophy taught in the book can be used to help people succeed in all lines of work and to do or be almost anything they want.
- Girl Code: So many people have told me good things about this book, I figured I may as well read it. Short summary from Amazon: GIRL CODE is a roadmap for female entrepreneurs, professional women, “side hustlers” (those with a day job who are building a business on the side), and anyone in between who wants to become a better woman.
