Looking for a great book to read on a cozy autumn afternoon? Look no further. This season, my reading list is stocked with great suggestions I’ve hunted down in magazines (thank you Elle) and nosing around the great world web. But, before I struck out to start reading, I wanted to share with you the 5 books next on my reading list this fall!
Twilight Reimagined, Life and Death by Stephenie Meyer
Even though the movies make me chuckle, the Twilight series was one that I really devoured back in the day. Am I “Twi-hard”? No. Am I somewhat slightly interested in this 10th anniversary retelling by Stephenie Meyer that gender swaps all of the roles in the original? Yes. Trust me, I felt like a big old fool picking this up at Target, but I think a trip back to Forks is in my future.
#GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso
I finally picked up the book everyone was raving about – six months ago. While admittedly late to the party, I’m also very excited to give it a read. Currently, I’m sitting about halfway through…and while it hasn’t provided me with many new ideas, it does inspire me to keep going down the hardworking path I’m on. Sometimes, being a career-driven female is shamed in today’s world, leaving us hardworking girls feeling like we should feel guilty over our ambitious objectives. #GirlBoss is a welcomed salute and applause to the career driven women out there, and a swift kick up the ass to get back to work.
The New Neighbor by Leah Stewart
Described as a ‘chilling page-turner’ by People magazine, The New Neighbor follows an old woman’s curiosity – turned potential obsession – as she observes the mysterious life of her new neighbor. “Just how much can you really know about the woman next door?”
….Sounds good. I’m in! *1-click*

Orient by Christopher Bolen
I’m 90 percent of the way through Orient, and it’s a solid mystery that’s perfect for a stormy afternoon. The story follows a small, seaside town on Long Island as it welcomes an outsider to its tight-knit community. Miles is a foster child, taken in by Paul to help sort through years of family storage. Beth is an artist, returned to her hometown of Orient after a failed attempt to strike it big in the Big Apple. Questioning the future of her marriage and career, she takes note as suspicious events start to pop up around the quiet town. An unknown creature washes up on the shore, two locals are found dead and a fire burns one family’s house to the ground. Miles and Beth team up to determine the truth behind it all.
Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
Me Before You is a modern classic that’s been on my To Read list for quite some time. It’s said to be a beautiful love story, following an ‘ordinary’ girl named Louisa, as she takes a job working for Will, who uses a wheelchair after a severe accident. ..and will make you see love in a way you may not have considered before. The book jacket raises the question: What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart? – and I’m just dying to know the answer!
