Fall. It’s the perfect time for leggings, riding boots, puffer vests, pumpkin everything, and books.
I love reading in the fall. There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book while I drink my salted caramel mocha.
So, what am I reading this fall? A lot, hopefully!
The Wicked Years Series by Gregory Maguire
Since it’s October, I figured now is the best time to read The Wicked Years. It’s the story of Oz’s Wicked Witch of the West–from her perspective. Intriguing? I think so.
I’ve seen the musical version of the first novel, but it’s been almost 10 years, so I don’t remember much of it.
Also, check out the colored edges of these books. Swoon.
Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen
Another intriguing title, amirite?
A woman is divorced at 40 and is forced to move back in with her parents. In a Mennonite community. The reviews all talk about how hilarious it is, so I’m in.
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Now that I’m well into my capsule wardrobe, I feel like it’s safe to read this book. The movie is hilarious. It’s about a girl who can’t control her shopping habits and goes bankrupt.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
A few years ago I went to a used book sale with my friend KC and we (obviously) checked out the free box. She squealed (as KC does) and threw Will Grayson, Will Grayson into my bag. It was free because it’s an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) and therefore can’t be resold. Free John Green books for the win!
It’s the story of two boys named Will Grayson, and there are two authors: one who writes for each. Yes, please.
