Here are some great books to check out this fall…
It’s fall, y’all.
(Even though it definitely doesn’t feel like it in my neck of the woods–hello, 90 degree weather at the end of September!)
But it is a good time of year to cozy up with a book, so here’s my list of nine books you should read this fall…
9 Books to Read This Fall
1. Does This Volvo Make My Butt Look Big? Thoughts for moms and other tired people, Annabel Monaghan. Funny takes on parenting in all its messy glory.
2. Class Mom, Laurie Gelman. A fictional tale about a year in the life of a kindergarten class mom, written by Live w/ Kelly producer Michael Gelman’s wife.
3. Winter Solstice, Elin Hilderbrand. I can’t resist an Elin Hilderbrand tale. This is the fourth in a series of book about the Quinn family and the Winter Street Inn.
4. Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone, Brené Brown. “Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other.”
5. The Golden House, Salman Rushdie. A foreign billionaire brings his colorful family to Greenwich Village.
6. The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood. Women are forced to be handmaids for the rich and are only valued if their ovaries can produce.
7. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life, Mark Manson. “Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better.”
8. The Rules Do Not Apply, Ariel Levy. One reviewer said, “You’ll laugh, ugly cry, and finish it before the weekend’s over” about this memoir about love and loss.
9. The Best of Us, Joyce Maynard. A year into her new marriage with the love of her life, Maynard’s husband develops pancreatic cancer.
