6 Fall Reading Favorites [Books To Add To Fall Reading List]

Fall Reading Favorites

What was your favorite book read last Fall? Since we both use Goodreads to track the books we’ve read, we can use it to look back at our faves. We want to shout out to these awesome books we read in Autumn seasons past – and encourage you to read them, if you haven’t already.

Tanya – When looking back at my favorite reads from last Autumn, I realized that all except 1 book, were part of a series. Parable of the Talents (Earthseed #2), Octavia Butler – is my throwback series, having been first published in 2001. Read this book to find out just how bad a society can get when there is a crazy president in charge – and a bunch of rabid followers. There were only 2 books in the series, and you don’t have to read the first one before tackling the 2nd.


The Good House, Tananarive Due, is my fave stand-alone novel from last Fall.

End of Watch (Bill Hodges #3), Stephen King is more of a contemporary mystery … well, at least the first 2 books in the series were. King being King decided to throw in a bit of a funky paranormal twist into the 3rd book in the series, and wowza! End of Watch turned out to be a delicious thriller that held me in it’s grip from beginning to end. Alas, you really need to read the books in the order in which they were published, but fear not – they are all fantastic reads.

Kim – Fall is usually a really good reading season for me. Last August I read A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman and you all know I can’t stop recommending it. It’s just a simple novel but I couldn’t help but fall in love with it and I think there’s something about it that can almost appeal to any reader.

Fall Holiday Reading GuideSix of Crows, Leigh Bardugo is the first in the series and I loved it! Bardugo really knows how to paint the most eclectic characters and I think that’s what I loved most about this book.

Partials, Dan Wells. This is a dystopian novel that I picked up years ago. It sat on my shelf for too long and when I finally got to it, I wished I’d read it sooner. I’ll be, for sure, picking up the second book.

  1. […] FOUR. Read all the Books. A scary book in October. Or 2 … or 3 in honor of Halloween. Or just curl up under the blankets with a good book as often as possible (check out our 6 Fall Reading Favorites). […]

  2. The Partials was an unexpected surprise on how good it was! I just picked up Butler’s books since I read Kindred last Spring and was blown away. People even started a large religion-like community based on her Parable series! It must be good and I need to read it soon! Great reads this fall.

    1. I was surprised by Partials too!
