Happy Fall! Whether you are settling into a new school year like we are, or simply enjoying the changes taking place outside, I hope this Autumn you can curl up with a good book and a cozy blanket. Here are a few of our reads.

Roseanna’s Reads

Between the Wild Branches by Connilyn Cossette
I’ve been eagerly awaiting the second book in this biblical fiction duology, and it was even better than I hoped! This was my first vacation read, and it keep me good company at the beach indeed! The story of Lukio had absolutely everything–excitement, danger, intrigue…and of course a heart-moving romance. Another fantastic book from Conni!
A Lady Unrivaled by Yours Truly
Yes, I’m rereading my own book. I have to! Tea Party Book Club, you know–and it’s been waaaay too long for me to remember all the little details. But I’m happy to report that I still adore Ella and Cayton. 😉
Isaac & Izzy’s Magical Maples by Angela Henderson
This final book in the Isaac’s Ice Cream Tree trilogy is just as enchanting and sweet as the other two! Angela Henderson has written a whimsical tale of friendship and giving, and Rachael Koppendrayer’s illustrations are so beautiful and fun! If you have a little one in your life, you need to check out all three of these! This one is especially great for autumn.
Leviathan Wakes by James S. E. Corey
I’ve been waiting quite a while for time to sit down with this first book in The Expanse series. First my best friend read them and raved, then we watched the show, then my husband read the first three books…I was behind! Though definitely different than my usual (and definitely NOT Christian books, so beware, if you’re bothered by foul language, violence, and very male humor, LOL), I have to say I was completely enthralled with this complex and amazing science fiction. I don’t know how quickly I’ll be able to read them, but I’m looking forward to the rest! The world building is just ASTOUNDING!
Grace & Gravity by S.E. Clancy
This is actually a film-to-book adaptation just released from WhiteFire, and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read! Based on the film and then deepened, this story takes place mostly over the course of a couple hours and follows two men–an English atheist trying to end it all by jumping off a bridge, and an American Christian who hopes to save him with a tract and some pat phrases. They end up changing each other’s lives forever. Don’t miss it!

Rachel’s Reads

Autumn is here and I’m full steam ahead with my “creepy” reads TBR. We’ve also kicked off our school year strong with several good books with the kids!

Creepy Fall Book

Capturing the Devil by Keri Maniscalco

After sitting on my TBR shelf/cart for almost TWO years…I’m finally finishing off this series! I’ve enjoyed this series a lot! Please be warned, the series IS about serial killers and can be quite graphic. It is general market Young Adult Fiction.

With the Kids

By the Great Horn Spoon! by Sid Fleischman

We kicked off the school year with this fabulous book! My 4th grader really enjoyed it and we loved the adventure and twists thrown in. We stumbled upon the movie adaption on Disney+ (it’s titled The Adventures of Bullwhip Griffin) and plan on watching it for our family movie night this week.

Classic on Audio

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

This is one of my best friend’s absolute favorite book. And as I had never read it, I figured I’d better. While the writing IS beautiful…Heathcliff is frightful. I truly enjoyed Nelly Dean’s narrative though and look forward to watching the movie again now.

With the Kids

Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White

I’ve read this one, several times now, and each time, I just love it. This year it’s my 1st grader’s turn to read it for school. He is fascinated by animals and just loves hearing about the adventures of Wilbur and Charlotte.
