It’s officially October, and we’re ready for a new reading list to help us get cozy by the fire and embrace the new season. This month, we’re doing it with books from all kinds of genres from dramatic fiction to new coffee table books. Get ready to enjoy the new fall season with some great new reads on our radar.
- Bibliostyle: How We Live at Home with Books by Nina Freudenberger: I have to admit…I accidentally collect books. I receive so many review copies that I tend to hoard books more than actually read them sometimes. So…you can imagine my surprise on finding a book that actually brings light to this issue, and transforms a “problem” into a beautiful home décor idea. This is much more than a coffee table book, but a visual inspiration with page-by-page ideas of storing some of your most beloved items around your home, even if you don’t have room for a library.
- Modern Love, Revised and Updated: True Stories of Love, Loss, and Redemption by Daniel Jones: The most popular New York Times column comes to you in book form, and soon a series as well! If you’re more into a book full of quick reads in romance and life, then you’ve hit the jackpot. The best of Modern Love is the perfect book to curl up with at night.
- Generation Friends: An Inside Look at the Show That Defined a Television Era by Saul Austerlitz: As someone who has fallen asleep to the sounds of various “Friends” episodes in the background, by choice, over the years, it only felt right to grab this book. Pop culture historian, Saul Austerlitz, takes us through the good, the bad and the hilarious of “Friends” just in time for its 25th anniversary.
- American Royals by Katharine McGee: What if George Washington became king of the United States of America rather than the president? 250 years later, the Washingtons continue their strong rule over America, and the drama is just as addictive and juicy as the best UK royals gossip. Possibly one of the most anticipated novels of 2019 is finally here, and we dare you not to get drawn into the lives of these four American royals.
- Sontag: Her Life and Work by Benjamin Moser: As a writer, filmmaker, philosopher, teacher and political activist Susan Sontag was an unshakable voice. She passed in 2004, but this year, Benjamin Moser brings her talents back to life with a much-needed biography that takes an honest look at the incredible strides that this woman made during her life.
- Antoni in the Kitchen by Antoni Porowski: Let the “Queer Eye” obsession continue…this time in the kitchen! Forget your closets, Antoni takes us through delicious recipes made with love from delicious dips to a tried-and-true hangover cure, I’m pretty sure everyone can find a handful of recipes to adapt into their routines. You’ll definitely feel like a chef in your own kitchen.
- An Edited Life: Simple Steps to Streamlining Life, at Work and at Home by Anna Newton: When you work from home as we do, it can seem almost impossible to keep things separate. Even with my home office, I still work all over the house. I’ve been a huge fan of The Anna Edit for years, so she is a trusted resource in my book. You’ll learn to declutter literally everything in your life without going completely insane.
- No Judgments: A Novel by Meg Cabot: I follow one major literary rule, never say ‘no’ to Meg Cabot. As a very realistic novel, No Judgments opens in a small Florida island town just as a major storm is about to hit and cause a commotion. Relatable 25-year-old Bree Beckham isn’t worried about the storm until she notices how many locals abandoned their poor pets. On a mission to save them, she accepts help from her boss’s nephew, Drew Hartwell. You have a moment to swoon before the hurricane tempers down and reality strikes the two.
- Love on Lexington Avenue by Lauren Layne: I’m not sure why, but I’ve always found New York City a nice backdrop in any romance story. Claire Hayes declares that “there are no good men left in New York City,” and understandably so after she figures out that she’d been duped by her late husband. In an attempt to rid herself of all past memories, she hires a contractor, Scott Turner, to help her turn her life around. Too bad he spends more time getting on her nerves than helping her out. A romance is impossible out of this relationship…right?
- Here To Stay by Mark Edwards: Ready to get spooked prior to Halloween? This novel starts off innocently enough with the chaos of Elliot’s new wife’s parents coming to visit their home for the first time for a couple of weeks. However, Elliot doesn’t realize that Gemma’s weird sister Chloe is also tagging along. To make matters worse, two weeks pass and the Robinsons apparently have no intention of leaving Gemma and Elliot in peace. Elliot takes matters into his own hands and discovers things about his new wife’s family that he wished he hadn’t.
