Fall Reading List: Rainy Day Reads

Fall Reading List: Rainy Day Reads

FALL READING LIST_.png

The fall weather has been absolutely gorgeous so far this year with bright sunshine and warm breezes. However, November is just around the corner and with November comes the rain. I've been so busy this month that there's nothing I'm looking forward to for the rest of autumn more than curling up with a good book on a rainy day. With that in mind, there are my top three picks for rainy day reads to check out this fall.

The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I went on a big Sherlock Holmes kick as a young teen but I never made it through every single story. With Halloween coming up and the sun setting earlier, this feels like the perfect time to revise some classic mysteries.

The Book of Dust vol 1: La Belle Sauvage by Philip Pullman

I was so excited to find out that Philip Pullman has published the first of three companion books to the His Dark Materials trilogy. The original trilogy still ranks among my favourite books of all time. (If you haven't already read them, add them to this list too!) I'm so excited to curl up with The Book of Dust and dive back into Pullman's world. The combination of fantasy and familiarity make this the perfect cozy read.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania by Erik Larson

It's rare that I read a lot of fiction so I had to put at least one nonfiction title on my list. I'm a big Erik Larson fan but haven't read one of his books in a while. Dead Wake felt like a good choice because Larson's historical books are always filled with a little mystery and intrigue. For some reason, that kind of vicarious excitement is exactly what I'm looking for on a rainy day.

What are you reading this autumn? Do you have any great books to recommend?
