Readers, get ready. Fall is officially here, and as the seasons change, so do the books.
You know I adore summer reading, but I’m pretty excited about the change of seasons. If you’re anything like me, your heart warms at the thought of a cup of tea, a cozy blanket, and a big stack of books.
But which titles should go in that stack? That is the question.
I’m just home from the Southern Independent Bookstore Alliance’s fall trade show, where I got a sneak peek at the titles you’ll see everywhere this fall. On the blog, here’s your look at twenty of fall’s big books.
Today’s bonus podcast episode of What Should I Read Next is focused on fall’s hot new releases. Bookstore owner Holland Saltsman (from yesterday’s Ep 40—listen here!) and I talk about the titles we’ve read and are psyched about, plus the ones we can’t wait to get our hands on. I also bring you short interviews I did in Savannah with friends and authors (including Susan Meissner, Ariel Lawhon, and Greer Macallister) who share which books they can’t wait to read this season.
Check these out, decide which ones are for you, and stay tuned—because I’m sure we’ll see these titles again in future posts and episodes!
