Fall 2019 Reading List

Fall, autumn, whatever name floats your boat, is officially here. When I think of fall, I think of crisp weather, warm tones, my birthday, Halloween, and many other exciting things. One activity that I always find myself doing more of during this time of year (or try to do more of, because, let’s face it, school is all consuming) is reading. Reading books is my absolute favorite hobby and I don’t believe anybody that says books just “aren’t for them.” Books are for everyone; maybe you just haven’t found yours yet. Or maybe it’s not written yet… Hmmm. 

Anyway, there is a growing pile of books on my desk that I have every intention of reading this fall in between classes, homework, work, etc.; so I figured I would share the titles in my TBR (to be read) pile with you. Now, these aren’t recommendations because I haven’t read them yet, so I can’t vouch for if they’re good or not. These books could be godawful, but that is TBD.  

  1. Calypso by David Sedaris. I got this back in March without knowing too much about it (which is always a nice way to start a book so your reactions are genuine) besides the fact that it’s a book of short stories, and I love collections of short stories. I’m determined to not keep pushing this one aside for other books. Writing this into existence is my way of keeping myself accountable. 
  2. A Simple Favor by Darcey Bell. I WANT TO SEE THIS MOVIE SO BADLY. However, because of the kind of person I am, if there’s a book, I always have to read the book before I see the movie. This is nonnegotiable.  
  3. In Five Years by Rebecca Serle. Now, this book isn’t actually being published until March of next year, but I was so generously gifted an ARC (advanced reader’s copy) through the powers of the publishing community on Instagram, which just makes this an even more exciting read to (hopefully) get to. 

The pile of books on my desk will grow exponentially by the end of the semester; I can feel it. Despite that fact, this is what’s on my fall reading list at the moment, what’s on yours?

God Called, and He Told Us to Chill

I’ve never been great at small talk, but I’m going to give it a try: Some weather we’ve been having, huh? First, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake shook New England last Friday morning. Then on Monday, a total solar eclipse passed over the region, the last we’ll see (unless you forgot your eclipse glasses—protect your retinas!) […]

Ode to the Campus Bikers

A few days ago I sat with my friends in University Park, waiting for the solar eclipse to (somewhat) knock my socks off, when all of a sudden there they were. We all know them. That group of middle school kids that ride around campus on their bikes, acting all tough with their wheelies.  I […]
