Good Reads for Fall

by - 10:56:00 PM

Today I wanted to share some reading recommendations, and not that I've read all of them, but they're definitely on my must list for this new season. For this fall I've chosen stories a bit more melancholic and softer than those I read during summer. There's something about these titles and authors that make it more autumn-appropriate in my opinion.

1. Beatriz decidió no casarse by María Paulina Camejo

For all spanish-speaking readers, this is right on top of the list. I've read it twice already and it's only been a month since I got it. The story of the book is emotionally compelling, full of hope, and a different take on the most universal of human emotions... love. The author's narration allows the reader to feel deeply into the characters' emotions, while hoping for that happy ending we all want for ourselves.

2. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

Just as much a celebration of love as it is a portrait of loss, Lennie's struggle to sort her own melody out of the noise around her is always honest, often hilarious, and ultimately unforgettable.

3. Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavits, and Leanne Shapton

Women in Clothes is a look at why and how we wear what we wear, in more than 600 meticulously and beautifully designed pages of essays and conversation, with every possible permutation of women exploring their personal history through their clothing choices.

4. Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes

Described as Mean Girls meets The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the story embodies a funny, relatable look into the intricacies of high school social hierarchy.

5. Even in Paradise by Chelsea Philpot

"This intriguing and beautifully written novel has it all - love, loss, friendships, secrets, and that startling concept that one mistake can change the course of your life forever."- Elizabeth LaBan, author of The Tragedy Paper.

Busy schedules aside, hope you find the time to read these novels throughout the season.

Happy Fall!
