Fall and Winter 2019 Reading List

This post may contain affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you choose to purchase through links I provide.

I don’t know about you but when I think of fall, I think of cozy. And cozy brings up specific images of warm snuggly blankets, candles, hot tea, and BOOKS.

Growing up, I was always such a bookworm. I’d trade in precious hours of sleep to read a couple more chapters. Now that I’ve gotten older I don’t find myself reading a good book to often. Don’t get me wrong, I still read a ton. I spend almost half of my day reading and writing but that’s for my job. And while I love researching and writing for work, I’ve missed being able to read for fun.

So I’ve decided to dust off my library card and start reading again. I tried to keep the list manageable but I have no idea how much I can realistically read this fall. I’ll be sneaking in a few pages every now and then instead of devouring an entire book in one day.

PS. I have included affiliate links for each of these books. If you make a purchase I will make a small commission. That being said, I highly encourage you to check out your local library where you can probably find many of these books to read for free.

Reading List

American Royals by Katherine McGee: This book is about what America would be like if George Washington became King instead of President.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman: Often compared to the book A Man Called Ove, this book follows a quirky woman through her journey of letting people into her life.

The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle: Who would you have dinner with? Name anyone dead or alive? Serle explores this concept when the main character has her own dinner with five people from her life.

Twice In A Blue Moon by Christina Lauren: This is a cute little love story about a woman who encounters her first love 14 years after he betrayed her.

The Gifted School by Bruce Holsinger: Parents want the best for the kids but at what cost?

How Could She by Lauren Mechling: This book follows the lives and careers of three friends living in New York.

A Sky Painted Gold by Laura Wood: This book is described as Pride and PRedjuice meets The Great Gatsby.

Talking To Stranger by Malcolm Gladwell: A thought-provoking page-turner that looks at how we communicate with people we don’t know.

Nobody Wants to Read Your Sh*t by Steven Pressfield: A nonfiction book aimed at helping writers improve their craft.

I am so excited to start reading again. So much so I am not sure which book I want to read first. If you’ve read anything from this reading list, let me know if you liked them. No spoilers, please. Or if you have a book you are reading and loving, feel free to share in the comments too.
