There’s really nothing more that I like during the fall season than sitting with a good book and a warm cup of something. I never plan on reading any books in particular during any particular season. The only exception? I always read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone during Christmas. I’ve just always done it since I was a kid.
Today I’d like to share with you all of the books I’ll be (trying) to finish this fall. AKA just all of the books I’ve unnecessarily bought over the summer.
I love David Sedaris. During my sophomore year of college, my mom randomly called me and said she had an extra ticket to this thing called “An Evening with David Sedaris”. I had no idea who he was, but I wasn’t doing anything else that weekend so I decided to go. Best decision ever. I think I was laughing the entire night. After that, I literally read every single thing he had every written. His hilarious essays got me through so much. Theft By Finding is his newest book, and it’s basically just his diaries from 1977-2002. I’m VERY excited to read this.
Am I the last person to read this? Probably. I don’t know why I haven’t read it until now, but I saw it at my favorite used bookstore and had to buy it. I mean, it’s Nick Offerman.
Monty Python was a huge part of my childhood. I can’t even count how many times my childhood best friend and I watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail. This was another used bookstore buy; I had no idea this existed.
I’ve never read anything of Bill Bryson’s, but I’ve had multiple people tell me that I would love his stuff. So, I decided to start with a book of his that’s about one of my favorite playwrites: Shakespeare.
Another big part of my childhood was The Princess Bride. My parents made me watch the movie at a very young age, and it’s been one of my favorites ever since. I also immediately fell in love with the book when I read it for the first time my freshman year of high school. My copy of it is SUPER worn. This might be the first book I start with.
Why are all of these non-fiction? I guess I’m in a phase.
Anyone have their own reading list for fall? Lemme know what’s on yours!
