We are literally a few days away from fall and I am excited. Although I enjoy summer and the ability to wear dresses, rompers, and shorts I love the fall season. Something about being able to snuggle up on the couch with a hot beverage and a great book speaks volumes to me. Fall literally screams book weather especially if you are in a colder climate area. As I am writing this post I can’t help but think about 5 Love Languages that I have sitting on my nightstand waiting for me to finish reading. I am honestly ashamed to say that I haven’t finished the book. I think between everything that I am trying to do, it is last on the list. Although the material is interesting, I can’t seem to finish the darn book. I’m hoping to finish it before starting on something new. Enough of that. Today I am sharing 6 books that have made my fall book list. I am hoping I am not only able to finish these in decent timing, but that I also enjoy them.


The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae is a book that made my list simply because of the laughs I’ve heard it gives its readers. I’ve watched a few episodes of her television show Insecure I thought it was really interesting; it is defiantly on my list of shows to watch. So I am anxious to read the book.

The Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person  is written by a popular name in the television world. The book literally made the list once I saw Shonda Rhimes was the author. She is the creator of Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and the executive producer of How to Get Away with Murder. She is also the writer of the 2002 film Crossroads starring Britney Spears and Zoe Saldana.

After reading reviews on Amazon I decided to add Black Privilege: Opportunity Comes to Those Who Create It by Charlemagne Tha God. The book has been described as honest, refreshing and laughable; I couldn’t say no to those three adjectives.


The next two books come from two of my favorite actresses; so I definitely had to support. The first is We’re Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union. I mean honestly the title itself drew me in. However, the personal essays in the book are what I am anxious to read. The book is composed of topics such as the divorce of her parents, beauty, and competition between women. The second book is Around the Way Girl: A Memoir by Taraji P. Henson. I am excited to read this book to dive into the life of the young Taraji; to hear her story and learn how she got to where she is today.

I chose to add The Young Wives Club: A Novel to the the list due to the book being about four friends from Louisiana who pretty much find out that love isn’t always easy. These young women will each go through their own obstacles; I am interested in seeing how it turns out.


I would love to know if any of these books made your fall list or if you have already read them.
