Autumn Book Lists
27 of the Best Books to Read This Fall
As soon as that temperature drops, it's time to forget about pink wine and start thinking about coats, candles, cocoa, and coverlets. It's also time to begin wildly fantasizing about what will go in your book stack—because there's no better companion in an adult blanket fort. Here are the 28 books we'll be reading this fall. Penguin Press, September 4. Motherhood and road trips have some things in common: the inexorable tedium, the fleeting milestones. In this debut by the Millions staffer Lydia Kiesling, a mother takes her child on the road, a journey with an unexpected destination.
Add to Bag. Stiefvater moves effortlessly between the mundane but never that mundane and the utterly magical, creating worlds where the boundaries between possible and im- are more like suggestions. The Scar Boys , by Len Vlahos This story of a boy horribly scarred in the aftermath of a childhood attack is suffused with a melancholy, autumnal vibe, but uplifted by the fresh-start hopefulness of rock fandom and musical creation. Covered in burn scars that have left him a social pariah, Harry Jones is transformed by friendship with Johnny McKenna, and the punk band they start with mutual crush Cheyenne. The band picks up momentum and the possibilities, for a moment, seem endless.
