It’s favorites time again! I almost forgot to write this post in my frenzy to come up with all of my blogmas posts (where are all the holiday tags this year?). I had a really great fall reading season this year – I read a ton of books, most of which I liked. However, there are a few I truly loved and think I will return to again and again.
Click the links below to see my monthly wrap up for each of the months included in this favorites post. Any reviews I’ve done for these books are also linked.
- Sourdough by Robin Sloan. This book is basically about technology and bread. Who doesn’t like tech and bread? I mean, it’s basically bread porn. And I loved it.
- Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I’m pretty sure this book cemented Celeste Ng on my list of favorite authors. It was just so subtly amazing and I still can’t get over it.
- The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. This book is incredible, and I am so happy to see so many other people loving it, too. It took me months to read this because I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. But I did and I cannot wait to see what Angie Thomas does next.
- An American Family by Khizr Khan. I adored this memoir! It is so inspiring and beautifully written. Khan is truly impressive, and I enjoyed reading his story immensely. (Apparently I like long words that start with “i” today.) I think a lot of people could benefit from this book, and I encourage you to give it a shot.
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. I’ve read quite a few memoirs this year, and this is another one of my favorites. I loved learning about Noah’s childhood in South Africa – a place I was unfamiliar with prior to reading this book. I enjoyed his humor, and I feel like having read this story has made me a better person.
That’s it for my fall reading! Be sure to check out my monthly wrap ups (linked at the top of this post) to see all the books I’ve read in the past three months. I’m looking forward to the end of the year and some more cozy winter reading.
What’s the best book you read this fall?
