Fall 2019 Reading List

Image via Curbed

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?

What Did You Get on Wordle?

Every single morning, usually before I even leave my bed, I have three tasks: Wordle, Connections, and the Mini Crossword. Every. Single. Day. I am what you might consider a burnt-out former “gifted kid,” which basically means I crave academic validation, and I was that kid in high school who got upset over getting a […]

Presidents Have Never Been Older

Presidential candidates have never been older. It can be tough to remember a time when people running were not on retirement benefits but that time did exist. Obama (he/him) was 51 when he ran for reelection, Mitt Romney (he/him) was 65. Bush Jr. (he/him) was 54, Bill Clinton (he/him) was 46, Bush Sr. (he/him) was […]

The 2024 Ultimate Guide to Homework

I did not realize it was possible to drown in paper until this semester. Well, technically homework, papers, and wait… do people even use paper anymore? Anyway, if you are like me this semester, then the amount of homework you’ve been getting is pretty rough, and with the weather getting warmer, it’s going to be […]
