Spring might be the official season of renewal, but fall has always felt more refreshing to me. There’s a comforting sense of things being brought full-circle when the leaves change. A circular novel that should definitely be on your fall TBR is Brit Bennett’s The Mothers, in which a young woman must return to her hometown and reunite with the best friend and former lover she left behind, who have since become involved with one another.

Fall brings both nature and school to the forefront, but finding a novel that focuses on both can be a challenge. Thankfully, Anton DiSclafani’s The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls is here, melding Blue Ridge landscapes with a boarding-school setting for a story you won’t soon forget.

8.’The Accursed‘ by Joyce Carol Oates

Fall is the season for nostalgia, so let’s go back. Way back. Back to a time when Woodrow Wilson was still the president of Princeton University, and Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle is a brand-new book. This is the world of Joyce Carol Oates’ 2013 novel, The Accursed, in which Princeton families learn of a curse upon their houses.

9.’Salvage The Bones‘ by Jesmyn Ward

Buy it from Amazon

Jesmyn Ward set her National Book Award-nominated novel, Salvage the Bones, against the backdrop of Hurricane Katrina, but this story has enough tension and heart to keep your attention while the bad weather rolls in.

10.’Uncommon Type‘ by Tom Hanks

Buy it from Amazon

Fall’s nostalgia turns us all into hipsters, to some degree. But to really fall into the vintage-obsessed spirit, you need a book like Tom Hanks’ Uncommon Type, a collection of short stories united by a common element: the typewriter.
