Here comes fall – books to match the season!

It’s not quite fall, but I’m already thinking fall colors. Colorful sweaters and flowers are obvious, but have you seen these fall-colored books? What looks good to you?


Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson:

An unexpected teenage pregnancy pulls together two families from different social classes, and exposes the private hopes, disappointments, and longings that can bind or divide us from each other, from the New York Times-bestselling and National Book Award-winning author of Another Brooklyn and Brown Girl Dreaming. “Red at the Bone is fall’s hottest novel.”—Town & Country


Underland by Robert Macfarlane

From the best-selling, award-winning author of Landmarks and The Old Ways, a haunting voyage into the planet’s past and future.

Hailed as “the great nature writer of this generation” (Wall Street Journal), Robert Macfarlane is the celebrated author of books about the intersections of the human and the natural realms. In Underland, he delivers his masterpiece: an epic exploration of the Earth’s underworlds as they exist in myth, literature, memory, and the land itself.


The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett, the New York Times bestselling author of Commonwealth and State of Wonder, returns with her most powerful novel to date: a richly moving story that explores the indelible bond between two siblings, the house of their childhood, and a past that will not let them go.


The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman

The author of Other People’s Houses and The Garden of Small Beginnings delivers a quirky and charming novel chronicling the life of confirmed introvert Nina Hill as she does her best to fly under everyone’s radar. Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her own…shell.


A Door in the Earth by Amy Waldman

From the author of the national bestseller The Submission comes the journey of a young Afghan-American woman trapped between her ideals and the complicated truth in this “penetrating” (O, Oprah Magazine), “stealthily suspenseful,” (Booklist, starred review), “breathtaking and achingly nuanced” (Kirkus, starred review) novel for readers of Cutting for Stone and The Reluctant Fundamentalist.


I always get excited looking at book covers and these all look good to me, especially The Dutch House and Red at the Bone. What would you add to your list?

  1. Wow! Those are all colorful covers, Barbara. Thanks for sharing with us. Oh gosh, my list is endless. For the first time, I’m reading 3 books at once…not something I’d rather do. Happy Saturday! I hope you’re off for the day. 🙂

  2. I don’t know why everybody nuts up about summer reading when fall and winter are designed for snuggling up with a good book. Preferably near a fireplace, with a cup or glass of something warming, and if possible a cat on one’s lap and rain gently pattering outside. Bring it on . . .

  3. Wow! What colors! Gives me an idea for the cover of my next book (anthology of my flash fiction). THANKS – grinning. These all look promising, but I CAN.NOT.WAIT to read the Ann Patchett book. She’s one of my favorite authors.

  4. An interesting take on Fall, Barbara with books to match the season:) I am intrigued about Ann Patchett’s book on your list. I just downloaded “Medicine Walk” by Richard Wagamese. I am looking forward to reading it:)

    1. Hi Erica – I’ll have to look up Medicine Walk – hope you are enjoying it! I love Ann Patchett – she is such a diverse writer. I’m looking forward to reading it. Thanks for stopping by and commenting 🙂
