Woo-hoo! It’s officially my FAVORITE season of the whole year. Autumn. Brisk mornings, crisp afternoons, bulky sweaters, leather boots, hot hazelnut coffee, warm blankets, and BOOKS. All the books. If you’re looking for a good read for those cold nights, here are a few that will get you just in the mood to settle down and enjoy a night in.

Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough

What Lousie thought was a casual meeting at a bar with a stranger turns into a complicated relationship with both David AND Adele….his wife. But their marriage isn’t quite like it seems, something is off. As Lousie finds herself falling deeper into this strange web of lies and lust, she soon discovers just how far someone will go to protect their secrets. I started reading this book while camping this weekend and was instantly hooked! I’m usually good at guessing the endings but I did not see this one coming.

What Happened by Hillary Clinton

There were SO many times I wondered what Hillary was really thinking during her Presidential Campaign and reading this book was like getting a peek inside what was one of the stranges and unconventional Presidential election races in the history of the United States. It’s comical to read the reviews of this book online (like Amazon or Barnes and Noble) and let me spare you the drama: you have to read this for yourself and form your own opinion. I really enjoyed this book.

  • Unbelievable by Katy Tur. I typically don’t read political books but after all that has happened this year I’ve found myself drawn to books that give a look behind the scene. This book was written by journalist Katy Tur who reported on Trump’s campaign and was singled out and bullied by Trump which created an unsafe and threatening environment for a woman who was just doing her job.
  • Rabbit by Patricia Williams. When I started reading this book I could barely believe my eyes. The things that Miss Pat when through as a child grown up in poverty in Atlanta during the height of the crack epidemic. When she became pregnant at 13 Rabbit (her nickname) set out to create a life for herself and her child. Told with brutal honesty and a good dose of humor. Loving it so far!
