Fall 2019 Reading List

Friday, October 4, 2019


I love a good fall reading list. While this is, in no means, an exhaustive one, these are some of the books I have lined up for my autumn reading.

American Royals
Who among us is not a fan of the Royals (if not openly, then at least secretly intrigued)?  This re-imagining of American history--George Washington became King and his descendants still reign in present day D.C.--sounds all sorts of fun. I finally read The Royal We a few years back and enjoyed every fluffy bit. More Royal-based fiction, please!

Quiet

The definitive book in defense of introverts. I've had this on my list for so long and 2019 feels like the year to check it off.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Every fall, one of my friends and I text each other that we're re-reading Harry Potter and it makes my heart so happy: Friendship! Bravery! Going to the library! Please see my argument regarding the seasonal appropriateness of HP here.

The Library Book

Besides being penned by essayist Susan Orlean, any book about libraries is bound to end up on my reading list.

Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams 

Hello, my name is Grace and I am interested in any topic involving good sleep. After years of hearing 'REM cycle' thrown around, I'm finding this read both fascinating and terrifying.

Daisy Jones & the Six

I have heard so. many. good things about this--from Anne Bogel to Reese Witherspoon to Emily P. Freeman. All about a '70s band and their talented lead singer, this seems to be the book of the year. I managed to read half of the first page and I'm already hooked. I've also heard great things about the audiobook which has a different narrator for each character's point of view.

Crooked Kingdom

The second in Leigh Budargo's duology and follow-up to Six of Crow. Set in the Grishaverse of her Shadow and Bone trilogy, it continues the story of six thieves assembled for an impossible heist. 

An Enchantment of Ravens

A debut novel with a promising premise: a mortal painter dances too close to the truth when she captures the sorrow she sees in a faerie prince's eyes. I'll be honest, this made the list solely because of the beautiful cover art--and the title! I'm a sucker for good marketing. 

What are you reading this fall? Have you read any of the above and if so, how did you like them?
