Fall Reading List:2018
Fuzzy blankets, warm fires, cozy sweaters, and light breezes only means it’s time for Fall! Everything I just described, curled up with a good book and you are a match made in Heaven. Here’s my top picks for Fall: Some you may have seen splattered all over the internet and with good reason
*disclaimer: on average I read 1-2 books a month and these are some for easy reads for Fall
What A Time To Be Alone: The Slumflower’s Guide to Why You are Already Enough by: Chidera Eggerue - Chidera is an award-winning author who has basically written a book that encourages each of us to decide our own fate by learning to celebrate ourselves, not worrying about them, and feeling the togetherness in us. With advice from mama, colorful art and bold text, this easy read will have you re-evaluating your self worth in a good way!
Present Over Perfect: Leaving Behind Frantic For A Simpler, More Soulful Way of Living by: Shauna Niequist - This is a collection of essays that Shauna has written on her life changing journey when she found herself, exhausted, isolated, and simply said, sick. I’ve read a few essays and they are beautifully written.
Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be by Rachel Hollis: This book is all over the place! I honestly cannot go anywhere without someone recommending this book, so it must be good right? The book is basically like the game two truths and one lie, except the book is about a bunch of lies we often tell ourselves, and one truth. The truth is that you, and only you are responsible for who you become and how happy you are.
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan - Many people have praised the movie (I have not yet seen) so when there’s a book to go with, I must pick up the book. Imagine getting excited to go spend summer vacation with your boyfriend and know absolutely nothing about him. When I say nothing, I mean the really important stuff, such as how crazy rich he is! It seems like such a fun fiction book to get lost into and then you have a movie to watch after.
Sorry to Disrupt the Peace by Patty Yumi Cottrell - Honestly, the cover is what captured me, then the sticker that said “discover great new writers” and then I read the back. In the words of the back of the book “Helen Moran is thirty-two years old, single, childless, college-educated, and partially employed as a guardian of troubled young people in New York. She is accepting a furniture delivery at her shared studio apartment when her uncle calls to break the news: Helen’s adopted brother is dead. According to the Internet, there are six possible reasons her brother might have killed himself. But Helen knows better”…Sounds good right!?
I am so excited for these Fall picks and have already finished What A Time To Be Alone and half way through Girl, Wash Your Face.
Love & Light,
