The Most Anticipated Books of Fall

Jon Foro on September 03, 2018


For some of us, the onset of autumn is a blow to the soul. As long as the summer days and evenings are up in the Pacific Northwest, the fall and winter nights are equally dark and famously gloomy. But at least there's more time for reading. Thank goodness, because September ushers in the peak of the publishing season, a two-month frenzy of the most-hyped books and the biggest authors, all vying for shelf space, be it physical or digital.

This year is no different, of course. On the fiction side, we're looking forward to new books from favorites like John Grisham, Tana French, Liane Moriarty, Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, and—knock on wood—George R.R. Martin. The nonfiction offering is no less exciting, including stalwarts Doris Kearns Goodwin, Michael Lewis, and David Grann, as well as a book we should all read: The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers. We've also collected the most-anticipated books of fall for kids and young adults, and for good measure, some of the season's biggest cookbooks. 

I could list them all, but that would take days. Also, we have a store where we have collected all of the most anticipated books of fall. Happy reading!
