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?

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a fan of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie from pre-pandemic 2020, which I didn’t think was a hot take at the time, but oh was I wrong! As video game movies go, the film adaptation of beloved Sega character Sonic was weirdly accepted, some even dubbing it the best video […]

The Batman Review

Throughout Batman’s onscreen history, we’ve seemingly explored every angle the character has.  From the goofy surrealism of Adam West-era Batman, to Gothic camp of Tim Burton’s Batman,  and then the maximalist circus of Joel Schumacher’s Batman, ending with the gritty realism of Christopher Nolan’s Batman, the film history of the Dark Knight is full of […]

Both of these shows tackle important issues relevant to current society and left the audience […]
