Favorite Finds for Cozy Fall Reading

Fall Reading List


If you are a reader, a cozy night in with a good book can be the highlight of the fall season. I don't get the opportunity too often to dedicate an entire night to reading, but I do try to reserve some time before bed to read. It is an excellent way to wind down for the night. Diffuse an essential oil like Lavender, Roman Chamomile, or Serenity Restful Blend to promote restful sleep. You can also apply the oil to bottom of your feet or to a cotton ball tucked under your pillow. A snugly blanket, warm cup of tea, or a crackling fire can really up the cozy factor - a worthy pursuit that I highly recommend.

Fall Book List

  • Cooked, Michael Pollan - Again a great time to get motivated to start cooking at home and prompt a journey of healthier eating when so many temptations are just around the corner.
  • A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Betty Smith - I read this several years ago and remember how sad I was when I finished and could no longer spend my evenings sharing the experiences of Francie Nolan. I loved this one!
  • The Swan House, Elizabeth Musser - Just a great book to get caught up in. It is historical fiction that offers insights into the Atlanta civil rights scene in the 1960s. It offers up revelations that will keep you surprised too.
  • The Night Circus, Erin Morgenstern - Love story meets fable with two young magicians and the mysterious world of the circus. 

  • Wonder, R.J. Palacio - This a a Youth Fiction novel that is a must read for everyone, anytime. I'm adding it to my fall reading list since the movie version is is going to hit the theaters on November 17. It's a quick read and would make an excellent family read-aloud.

Picture Book Recommendations

When my kids were little, I started collecting pictures books for most holidays, but especially for Halloween and Christmas. They have become a big part of our holiday traditions even as my kids have gotten older. So I couldn't end my fall reading list without a few of my favorite picture books for this time of year.

Do you have any book suggestions for me? What's on your reading list this fall? Do you tend to favor fiction or non-fiction? Do you have any "reading rituals" you do to make reading time unique? I'd love to hear! Please share in a comment.
