Fall Books We Love


The Dutch House– Ann Patchett

Beautifully written novel about a broken family and the two siblings that emrege from the wreckage. Novel of memory– a warning. You’re either going to love that– or not.  But the relationship between the brother and sister is the heart of this book. Lots in here for readers and book clubs to chew on about family relationships– from absent mothers, to maligned stepmothers to the household help that step in to raise the siblings. Lian



The Nobodies– Liza Palmer

This is a super fun page turner about a former journalist that goes to work at a tech companyy as the lowest person in the department. But her journalistic instincts kick in when she senses something in off behind the scenes. Liza Palmer is the best-selling author of Conversations with the fat Girl and she based her novel on her real life experiences going to work at BuzzFeed. So sososososo funny. Lian

We Met in December– Rosie Curtis

For fans of Rom Coms and British people saying funny British things and drinking way too much on the weeknights. Engaging romance that unfurls over a calendar year. Lian






Bringing Down the Duke — Evie Dunmore

Take a regency romance and ramp it up with a fun storyline you don’t see often– women’s suffrage! Sharp, sexy, fun. Delightful. Lian


A Single Thread — Tracy Chevalier

A pre-World War II story about a women who uses her stitching to connect with other women and the world. Great storytelling from this bestselling author. Julie




Things You Save in a Fire — Katherine Center

Firefighters. Boston. Romance. Funny. We’re in! Julie
