Fall Reading List….Suggestions?

One of my four favorite times of year, Fall is on it’s way! Time for seasons to change, time for new books!!

I will be going on a shopping spree in a couple weeks to purchase books to read this fall. Anyone would laugh at my excitement, rivaling any child finding a stack of gift-wrapped presents with her name on the tags. I’ve never understood the power books have over me, the uncontrollable, involuntary draw to them. When I imagine heaven, I see Barnes and Noble. Ok that may be an exaggeration, but I guarantee when I get to heaven, there will be well stocked bookshelves.

I tried to get into the e-book craze. I completely understand the many benefits, and do admit to having a couple e-books stashed on my smart phone for those unexpected waiting room delays, but just can’t let go of the magic of physical books.

There is just something about the weight of the book in my hand, the smooth feel of the cover, the sound of the pages. Before I jump in to the story I take time to appreciate the colors on the cover and the print of the blurbs on the back and sleeve. Then turning the first page, reading the first words…. I’m completely enchanted by books!

But back to the subject at hand – it will soon be time for my fall book shopping event, and… HELP!

I would love suggestions of what to read next. I currently have a list of  76 books that have struck my interest. I need to knock that down to 10-15.

Help me make a short list. What good books have you read lately or are planning to read? What authors are you currently into?

A comment below with a blurb about your current reading suggestions would be helpful and appreciated!

Thanks, and Happy Reading!
