Curl Up With These Highly Anticipated Fall Reads!

The weather is starting to cool off and fall is just around the corner—that means there’s no better time than the present to get cozy with a warm blanket, a big ol’ mug of cider and a good book! Take a look at these upcoming releases and find your next fall read:  

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood

Doesn’t it make sense to begin with Margaret Atwood’s long awaited sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale? The Testaments picks up 15 years after the original novel’s ending and continues the narrative of life in dystopian Gilead from the perspectives of three unique women.

The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates

Known for his powerful and acclaimed writing on American race relations, Coates turns to the medium of magical realism in his newest novel. The story focuses on Hiram Walker, a young slave with a mysterious gift. Hiram is falling in love and grappling with the loss of his mother, all while journeying further into the dangerous war between the slavers and the enslaved.

The Institute by Stephen King

The New York Times book review for King’s latest hails it as his scariest work yet. Light on the supernatural elements, the monsters in The Institute are all human; more specifically, adults who kidnap gifted children in order to extract their extraordinary powers by any means possible. Much like King’s bestselling novel It, this is another compelling story of kids banding together to fight against a tremendous evil.

The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

Ann Patchett’s writing is consistently exquisite and evocative, and if I can judge this book by its cover, The Dutch House will continue that trend. Patchett weaves the tale of Danny and Maeve, two tight knit siblings who grow up in the titular house under the watchful eyes of relatives portrayed in ornate oil paintings. When their father remarries, misfortune follows for years to come, and the siblings are left to sort through the pieces of their family’s complicated past.

Over the Top: A Raw Journey to Self-Love by Jonathan Van Ness

If you’re one of many who knows and loves Jonathan from his delightful work on Queer Eye and Gay of Thrones, then it’s time to pick up his new memoir. Van Ness gives readers a window into his traumatic childhood years, but all throughout his story is interwoven with humor, endurance, plus his trademark sparkle and shine. This one is sure to make you laugh AND cry.
