The Current Reading List: Autumn

what to read this fall, what to read in autumn

Ok I know it’s not officially Autumn yet but we’re heading in that direction quickly so I thought you might want to start preparing that cozy, Autumn list of books to read! I’ve done various posts on books through out my years blogging, but I usually share those reads after I’ve made my way through the entirety of the book. I wanted to change things up a bit and share with you what I’m currently reading, so maybe you can join in while I’m still knee-deep in the books as well.

I’ve always been the type of reader to be 10 chapters deep in 4-5 books at a time. I love mixing up my daily reads just to keep things interesting and challenge my mind with different topics. So below you’ll see the wide range of stories I’m currently working through.

Currently on the Night-Stand

Chasing Slow: This is a memoir/coffee table book that I saw fly through social media about 4 or 5 months ago. I knew that I’d eventually pick it up because I’m usually “in” to the trendy books that everyone likes to read. Sorry not sorry. I was excited to see what truth bombs this book had for me because lately I feel like I can’t ever fully “shut-off,” and surely Chasing Slow would have a tip or two on doing so. Sure enough, I’ve found myself highlighting my way through most chapters and making notes along the margins. This is a good’un to pick up to clear your brain.

Caraval: The older I get, the harder I am to please in the fiction genre. It takes a lot for me to get sucked into fictional stories and it’s not because I don’t like reading fiction, I actually love it. But apparently I’m exceptionally picky. It’s been almost a year since I finished my all-time favorite fiction series, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and I’ve struggled to find anything that lives up to that ever since. Enter Caraval. I picked this book up on a whim because I really liked the cover since it reminded me of my favorite stand-alone book, The Night Circus. And now it’s turning into one of my all-time favorite reads. It’s nothing like I’d imagined it would be, but it’s magical, seductive, mysterious, and a really adventurous read!

You are a Badass at Making Money: Okay, are you done laughing yet? I know, what a weird title. Stay with me though. I really like to challenge myself by always keeping some sort of business related book in my stack of current reads and this so happens to be on my nightstand right now. Since money is so taboo and never talked about, I thought I’d challenge myself to read about such an uncomfortable topic. This book covers a lot about our mindset and road blocks when it comes to money. Jen Sincero, the author, went from being really poor to crazy rich once she shifted her mindset about money in her daily life. I’ve learned so much about perspective and how to navigate the negative thoughts we have about money through this book. Would highly recommend!
