Fall into Reading: Our Most Anticipated Books of the Season

Chris Schluep on September 06, 2017

NgAs book lovers, we know that the close of summer is something to anticipate. Maybe there aren't as many beachy reads available--but the ones that are on the horizon are BIG ones. Stephen King. Michael Connelly. Nora Roberts. Ken Follett. Janet Evanovich. John Grisham. And Dan Brown. BIG.

But fall is also the traditional season of serious nonfiction. Walter Isaacson has written a book on Leonardo da Vinci. Ron Chernow has a huge biography coming out on Ulysses Grant (in this book, I learned that the "S" in U. S. Grant was the result of a fortunate clerical error that Grant decided to keep). And National Book Award-winner Ta-Nehisi Coates has a collection of essays coming out in October.

In literature, some other names that stand out are Jennifer Egan, John Green, Celeste Ng (we selected Ng's last novel as our best book of 2014), and Jeffrey Eugenides.

But that's really just scratching the surface. There are lots of books in our Fall Reading list. Some of the authors will be familiar, but it's our hope you'll discover new ones as well. Have a look. And happy reading!

(Oh, and cookbooks. There are lots of new cookbooks.)
