The most wonderful time of year.

Y'all. I love the start of September.  It comes promptly each year with fresh agenda planners, new routines, and a breeze that carries the promise of fall in its rustle of the trees.  September fetches the season in which I most adore to read. It seems as if everyone has a summer reading list, but I am in vote of creating a fall reading list– even amidst all the to-do lists this season seems to carry within its wind. 

With the quests of being a semi-new wife and studying for graduate school, I can still always find time to escape into my favorite literary worlds as fall begins to arrive. There's just something about the beginnings of quiet cold air that beckons me outside to curl up with the words that allow my soul to breathe. 

Thus, my perfect fall day includes a steaming yellow mug of earl grey tea, a particularly cozy striped blanket, and a pile of books by my side as I discover them, adventure by adventure, on my back porch while dew sits silently upon the grass.

So what will be in this pile of books, aka my personal fall reading list? The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith [the sequel to the suspenseful Cuckoo's Calling], Four by Veronica Roth [Tobias' accounts from the Divergent series], Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn [film adaptation to be released October 3], Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers [a personal love that I read each fall], Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty [a customer favorite at the'Shelf], and, of course, my precious Bible [my grace, mercy, and peace].

When/where is your favorite time/place to escape into literary worlds? And what titles will make your fall reading list?
