The summer and holidays are my absolute favorite times of year to read lots of novels I’ve been meaning to get to, or just haven’t had time to read during the “school months.” I am so excited about this summer because a couple of my favorite authors are releasing new books at the beginning of the season – just in time for our vacations! Mary Kay Andrews, Liane Moriarty and Emily Giffin are just a few authors releasing new books this season and I am so excited to read all of the titles listed below!
One of my favorite posts every year is when I share the books I plan to read. Why? Because I love to read and I put a lot of thought into what I want to read every year. After all, there are only so many months in a year and I have two babies, so there isn’t as much time for reading these days as I’d like and I want to make sure that the books I enjoy are worth the read.
After You (Sequel to Me Before You) by Jojo Moyes – September 24th
See Me by Nicholas Sparks – October 13th
The Lake House by Kate Morton – October 22nd

What is on your fall reading list? Have you checked out this year’s new releases?
First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
Synopsis from Goodreads: From the New York Times bestselling author of Garden Spells comes a story of the Waverley family, in a novel as sparkling as the first dusting of frost on new-fallen leaves…
It’s October in Bascom, North Carolina, and autumn will not go quietly. As temperatures drop and leaves begin to turn, the Waverley women are made restless by the whims of their mischievous apple tree… and all the magic that swirls around it. But this year, first frost has much more in store.
Claire Waverley has started a successful new venture, Waverley’s Candies. Though her handcrafted confections—rose to recall lost love, lavender to promote happiness and lemon verbena to soothe throats and minds—are singularly effective, the business of selling them is costing her the everyday joys of her family, and her belief in her own precious gifts.
Sydney Waverley, too, is losing her balance. With each passing day she longs more for a baby— a namesake for her wonderful Henry. Yet the longer she tries, the more her desire becomes an unquenchable thirst, stealing the pleasure out of the life she already has.
Sydney’s daughter, Bay, has lost her heart to the boy she knows it belongs to…if only he could see it, too. But how can he, when he is so far outside her grasp that he appears to her as little more than a puff of smoke?
When a mysterious stranger shows up and challenges the very heart of their family, each of them must make choices they have never confronted before. And through it all, the Waverley sisters must search for a way to hold their family together through their troublesome season of change, waiting for that extraordinary event that is First Frost.
Lose yourself in Sarah Addison Allen’s enchanting world and fall for her charmed characters in this captivating story that proves that a happily-ever-after is never the real ending to a story. It’s where the real story begins.
