What Books Are You Looking Forward to Reading This Fall?

Cooler air has started to invade South Texas, so it must be time for Fall Reading! For me, Fall signals a shift in my reading habits. While I'll still read some of the lighter reads left over from Summer, I'll also make time to read denser and more serious works. I began the season by finally reading the fascinating, if a bit slow, 'This Bright River' by Patrick Somerville. As the leaves begin to fall, I'm looking forward to reading JK Rowling's 'The Casual Vacancy' and Michael Robatham's 'Say You're Sorry'. How do your reading habits change with the season, and what books are you looking forward to reading this fall?

P.S. I am hosting a giveaway of my Fall Reading Kickoff book, "This Bright River" by Patrick Somerville. Visit my blog to enter. The giveaway is open through 9/21.

I am also looking forward to reading JK Rowlings new book and anticipate, Tom Wolfe, author of Bonfire of the Vanities new novel called Back To Blood.... Also  John Banville has a new one titled Ancient Light...and prolific author, John Grisham has a new one coming out in October titled The Racketeer.

My reading habits pretty much stay the same year round..I go from light to more serious to light...but try to keep current. My blog also has what's new, what's popular and what I do or don't like.

I've never read any Tom Wolfe, but I've seen many of his novels at the book store. I forgot about the latest John Grisham novel. I hope he keeps the positive momentum from "Calico Joe". His latest legal novels have been a bit subpar, but he really turned things around with a change of topic. Anyways, I'll continue to check your blog for all the latest releases. 

Looking forward to the new Michael Chabon book.


I didn't know Chabon had a new book this fall. It sounds like a great read. The last novel I read by him was the Yiddish Policemen's Union. I really enjoyed his unique writing style. 

I have so many books on my TBR list! To answer your question, the books that come immediately to mind are:

Practice to Deceive by J.R. Lindermuth

Raging Water by Marilyn Meredith

Jambalaya Justice by Holli Costillo

Poisoned Pairings by Lesley A. Diehl

Beta by Stephen Brayton

It sounds like you have a busy reading schedule ahead of you. Do you have a blog where you post reviews?

I am already working on Winter and Spring books, but my favorite books of the fall are all novels:

Patrick Somerville's This Bright River
Emma Straub's Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures
Jami Attenberg's The Middlesteins

This week has been the first where we are below 90 degrees, so it is just staring to feel like fall. I agree that This Bright River was a great novel, if not a bit confusing. Sounds like you have some more interesting novels lined up for the remainder of the year. Thanks for your comment.
