“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”

Cozy season is here! It is the time of year for crisp air, colorful leaves, drinking overpriced fall drinks, the great pumpkin, watching Gilmore Girls, and sweater weather!  Basically, It’s the perfect time to curl up in your favorite chair under a warm blanket and read the perfect book while sipping on whatever fall drink that you prefer.  Fall vibes all the way!

I know I know, the Summer reading lists are usually THE lists that everyone waits for. But I’m here to make a case for fall reading lists. And not because fall is my favorite season!

Good books are the best, but in the fall, a cozy book fall book can feel like a warm hug.

My personal fall reading list is usually a mix of classics, favorites I re-read every year, and a few new cozy reads that I discover.

This leads me to this fall reading list. This list is full of cozy fall books ( and a few not so cozy, but they fit the theme so GO WITH IT). 

It is not a list of the BEST fall books, but a great list of cozy reads to help you just curl up and enjoy fall. There is something for everyone on this list. A few new books are just being published this fall, mixed in with a few classics. You might even find some of your favorite books on the list.

I hope you enjoy!
