Summer is usually the time of year I read the most, but there’s something extra special about cozying up in the fall with a good book. Especially this season with all the amazing novels that have hit the shelves! But don’t worry, I’ve done the heavy lifting and scoured through a ton of reviews, winnowing down my top 10 fall books. These are definitely the ones I’m most excited about! fall books, fall reading list, fall book list

The History of Bees – This first fall read follows three generations of beekeepers from the past, present, and future, which already sounds so mystical. It’s a rich story of intertwined relationships set against the backdrop of an urgent, global crisis.

Little Fires Everywhere – this one has been getting a lot of buzz! I read Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You and loved it, so I’m looking forward to seeing what her sophomore novel will bring. PS – Entertainment Weekly said it was the #1 must read book for the fall. Sign me up!

The Alice Network – Every season needs a good historical fiction and it looks like this is the one to beat! The premise about World War I spies reminds me of the Nightingale which was one of my favourite reads a couple years back.

The Year of Living Danishly – Is there a formula for joy? Apparently in Denmark! Follow this London native’s exploration of the happiest country.

A Well Crafted Home – I had to include one home decor/beautiful coffee table styled book this go round! Sorry not sorry!

Alias Grace – I’m sure most of us have reread Handmaid’s Tale after all the hype and success, so why not add another classic Margaret Atwood to the list. I read Alias Grace years ago and loved it, so I’d happily pick it up again!

The Rules of Magic – A prequel to Practical Magic right in time for Halloween?! It doesn’t get much better than that! And I am a huge Alice Hoffman fan (currently finishing the Marriage of Opposites finally!) so she will always grace my reading lists!

The Child Finder – A harrowing and methodical search for a missing child may just be too much for this mama to take, but even so, this novel may just be the perfect suspenseful thriller this season!

The Golden House – This was a late addition to the list but I thought it was interesting with the current political climate. Set in New York City immediately after Obama’s election, it’s an incredible exploration of culture, class, immigration, and politics.

Class Mom – Sometimes these reading lists get a bit heavy so I thought I’d include a lighter novel that will garner a laugh or two. This fresh take on the modern mama is cleverly written and a fun escape.
