Fall Reading List

Cooler weather, changing leaves, and a good book - not much better than that! When the Fall season makes an arrival, I love to curl up with a good book on the back porch. I've put together a Fall Reading List that will give you some great reading suggestions for your book list!

I’m a big fan of mystery/thriller novels, and I just feel like those go hand-in-hand with fall. I mean, October is the month of Halloween, right? Maybe that’s my reasoning. 

Whatever the reason, Fall just feels like the best time to curl up with a good book under a blanket on the back porch when the air is crisp. Here are some of my selections for good books to read this fall:

Here’s a short list of the suspense novels I love:

  • “Stay Close” by Harlan Coben
  • “The Family Upstairs” by Lisa Jewell
  • “Watching You” by Lisa Jewell
  • “In a Dark, Dark Wood” by Ruth Ware
  • “Into the Water” by Paula Hawkins
  • “When You See Me” by Lisa Gardner
  • “My Best Friend’s Exorcism” by Grady Hendrix
  • “Run Away” by Harlan Coben
  • “The Woman in Cabin 10” by Ruth Ware

Looking for something a little lighter? No worries! Here are some of my other favorite books to read from other genres – fantasy, Christian, and historical fiction:

Dig into these good reads this fall:

  • “Rhythms of Renewal” by Rebekah Lyons – perfect to prep you for New Year’s Resolutions by teaching you healthy rhythms for your life

  • “The Tattooist of Auschwitz” by Heather Morris – a tragic but beautifully told story of Jewish families in Nazi Germany

  • “The Starless Sea” by Erin Morgenstern – an epic, gorgeous, magical book about books (yes, really) and those who weave the tales we read

  • “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr – a blind French girl, a young German boy, and how their drastically different lives intersect during World War II
