Fall Reading List

Hello friends! I know it has been a few weeks since my last post, I have been busy trying to get back into the swing of the semester.  While school and work are important parts of my life, I always try to make  room for some fall fun- especially since it is my favorite season! One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to curl up with a good book and a warm cup of pumpkin spice coffee. I decided that for this post I would share with you my fall reading list:

1. The Old Man and The Sea

This book by Ernest Hemingway is a classic! A friend of mine and I decided to start a book club and this was our September choice.  While it is a short and easy read, it is definitely worth it.

2. The Professor & the Madman: A Tale of Murder, Insanity & the Making of the Oxford English Dictionary

I have never read this book by Simon Winchester, however many of my Goodreads connections were raving about it.  With such high reviews, how could I not add it to my list? While it is not a classic, I am looking forward to starting this interesting tale.

3. The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America

Every good reading list has different genres, even if you do not normally read them.  For my fall reading list, I decided to try this mystery novel by Erik Larson. Usually I lean towards the mystery writers that I am familiar with when it comes to creating a reading list- after all there are always new ones coming out.  However, a coworker suggested I try this one, so I am.

4. Death Comes to Pemberley

One of my favorites from class literature is Pride and Prejudice.  This book by P.D. James is a spin off of that famous classic.  While is has low reviews on Goodreads.com, it caught my eye in the book store and I just HAD to have it! I am only a couple of chapters in, however I enjoying this mystery novel.

5. Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies

I decided that while I love the world of fiction, there is also a need to read non-fiction.  This book by Charlene Li and  Josh Bernoff seemed like a good idea since I am a Communication major, and social media plays a vital role in how people communicate today. Currently I am on chapter four, and it has been pretty interesting.  It did come out in 2008, but this book has some great incites for companies and those trying to get a message out there to their audiences.

6. The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands

Finally, the last book in my list is another non-fiction title. This book by Lysa TerKeurst has been sitting on my book shelf for a few years, so I decided it was finally time to read it.  Her book has great reviews and I look forward to seeing what it’s all about.  As someone who is overwhelmed with balancing life, this seemed like a good one to read.

Since school and work are keeping me so busy, I decided to cap my fall reading list at 6 books. However, if I happen to finish these books before fall is over, I will make sure to update you guys on what books I decide to add. Feel free to post your fall reading list in the comments section below.  My goal is to post a review on each of these books, so stay tuned! 🙂
