Plus, crisp air just calls for curling up with a new book. If you’re looking for some new reads this fall, these five books will have you falling in love with reading…or just falling into hibernation.
Thicker than Water by Kerry Washington

Washington shares both her proudest moments and her biggest failures in Thicker than Water. If you’re looking for an inspiring read, you should definitely pick her memoir up.
The Long Game by Elena Armas
Elena Armas is back this fall with a newly released novel. If you were a fan of her steamy, slow-burn romance The Spanish Love Deception, you’ll definitely want to get your hands on her new book. The Long Game follows a soccer executive who is sent to save a small-town soccer team in North Carolina after an altercation. In this small town, she meets a retired soccer star who just might be the key to saving her reputation, but unfortunately for her, she can’t stand him. This book is perfect for all of the enemies to lovers fans out there.
Holly by Stephen King
Stephen King released his new novel, Holly, this past September—just in time for spooky season. This novel follows Holly Gibney, a private investigator, who is assigned a case regarding multiple disappearances. Gibney’s partner is sick and her mother passed away, leaving her all alone to uncover this gruesome mystery. If crime and horror are up your alley, Holly is the perfect October read for you.
The Weight of Beautiful by Jackie Goldschneider
Real House Wife of New Jersey Jackie Goldschneider released her first novel this past September. Goldschneider’s memoir The Weight of Beautiful delves into her struggles with eating disorders and her road to recovery. Being in the public eye has led to mistruths about her life, but she tells her own story in this inspiring new memoir.
Bright Young Women by Jessica Knoll
In the past few years, TV series and movies glorifying male serial killers have taken over the entertainment world. However, in her new novel, Jessica Knoll changes that script. Bright Young Women follows two best friends whose friends were murdered. The two women fight for justice, bringing awareness to similar stories that have not been told in today’s media. This empowering, yet chilling novel is a must-read this Autumn.
