Curl up with a good book.

Curl up with a good book.

When the fall chill creeps into the air, there’s nothing like curling up with a comfy throw, a crisp apple and a good read.

Picking your fall book list can be a little daunting—at least for us! There’s so many good books and just such little free time, we’re sometimes not sure how to narrow it down.

So take our suggestions with a grain of salt—these are books we’ve read recently and loved, but are most certainly not the end-all, be-all of fall reading lists. In fact, we’d love to hear your suggestions as well! Let us know in the comments what you’re reading, or looking forward to reading. We’re always looking for good new reads.

  1. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

You’ve probably heard the hype on this one—and it’s not without merit. We couldn’t put this page-turner down as Flynn wound her way through a tale of a marriage’s undoing, of the ties that bind a husband and wife and explored the theme of trust: can you ever really trust anyone, 100 percent? Read the book before you catch the film this October.

  1. This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper

Tropper brings to life a varied cast of characters in this laugh-out-loud funny book about a decidedly somber subject: sitting shiva. The story winds its way through the members of the Foxman family, exploring how they’ve lived, loved and created a slightly dysfunctional family dynamic. This, too, is now a movie (with a star-packed cast), which debuted September 12.

  1. The Tipping Point by Malcom Gladwell

Really, we could have put any of Gladwell’s books on this list—they’re all interesting enough to keep us occupied for hours on end. But The Tipping Point, his latest, seems especially apt in the age of “going viral”—what causes a phenomenon to cross a certain threshold and spread like wildfire? Gladwell helps us find out.
