I’m not really sure who has the responsibility of coming up with all the “national holidays” we’ve been seeing on social media recently, like “National Red Wine Day” or “National Dessert Day”, but whoever those people are, they’ve also named October National Book Month. I can totally understand why. With the crispness of fall back in the air, I’m definitely spending my Monday daydreaming about cozying up under a warm blanket reading a good book. Is there anything better? Add in some of those desserts from National Dessert Day or the wine from National Red Wine day and I’d be a happy girl!
To celebrate National Book Month, thought I’d share with you what’s on my fall reading list. Here’s to getting comfy with a new book this week…
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up– I’ve seen this book reviewed and mentioned by a few bloggers and all have had great reviews. And can’t we all use a little more organization and a little less clutter in our lives? I know I can. Looking forward to reading this book and doing some fall- cleaning.
After You– When I got an e-mail from Amazon about this book’s release, I immediately texted my friend I am in a book club with saying it had to be our next pick! It’s the sequel to Me Before You and if this is half as good as that book, I know I’m going to love it.
Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear– From the author of Eat,Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert’s newest book is all about creativity. I think it will make for a very interesting read and I’m hoping there are a few nuggets in there that I can use in my own life.
Go Set a Watchman– I am embarrassed to admit that I haven’t yet read this book which caused a big stir this summer. I’m looking forward getting back in touch with Scout and Atticus this fall though.
Tales From The Back Row: An Outsider’s View From Inside The Fashion Industry– I love reading novels set in the fashion industry or behind the scenes looks into the industry from books like this one. I read an excerpt of Amy’s book in a magazine and it was hysterical. I can’t wait to read this one.
Maybe In Another Life: A recommendation from The Skimm, this novel follows two different paths of what could happen based on a decision the main character makes. I can see this read pairing perfectly with a glass of red on a low-key weekend afternoon.
What’s on your fall reading list? I’d love to hear to help me grow my list!

Currently reading Fates and Furies – I like it, the author has a very unique writing style. The Clasp and Purity are also on my list. Adding After You – I also really enjoyed Me Before You.
Ooo, I heard Fates and Furies is great! I need to add that too 🙂
I love to see what people are reading! Is it bad that I am still on beach reads? I have been dreaming of Nantucket and reading Elin Hildebrand novels whenever I have free time.
Elin Hildebrand is perfect for day dreaming about Nantucket 🙂 I think it’s completely fine to still be on beach reads. We have to start looking forward to next summer somehow!
These look way more exciting than my current trilogy of leadership books…and cute throw! <3
Laughing so much at your first few sentences because one of the big things I make my interns do is keep an eye on all of those crazy food holidays for social media purposes 😛 And ugh, this list makes me itch to find some quiet reading time!! I’ve been into Mindy Kaling’s new book but it seems like I only find the time to pick it up about once a week!
My hubby thinks its hysterical when I declare it’s national “whatever” day and insist we celebrate :p!! I read Mindy’s first book, but not her second, I’ll have to check it out!
