Six Fall Releases We're Excited About

A good book is an event in my life. —Stendhal

Ditto, Stendhal. And from the look of these upcoming releases, I've got several events in my near future. Here's a sneak peek at the books I'm most excited for this fall:


I'm both excited and worried about this one. Here's hoping Zusak has two classics in him. Read Tray's review of The Book Thief here.


I'd like to say this is perfectly timed for someone to wrap up and put under the tree for me, but who am I kidding? I've got a date with Inspector Gamache at midnight on November 26th and not one minute later. Read more about my obsession with this series here and here.  


Written in response to the refugee crisis and the haunting image of the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, this is said to be a beautiful and heartrending read. We wouldn't expect anything less from Khaled Hosseini. It's an illustrated short story for all ages and it couldn't be more timely.


When Stephen King calls your prose "incandescent" and Maureen Corrigan says you're "a poet of mood and a master builder of plots," we take notice. A few weeks before Halloween is the perfect release date for a book guaranteed to frighten us out of our wits.


Kate Morton fans rejoice! Does this woman ever sleep? In 12 years she's managed to write 6 books, including this one, and so far they've all been best-sellers. And she's only 42, people. Here's hoping this book continues her string of winners.


First of all, it's Justin Timberlake. And second, that title. Perfection. Tray and I are hoping to snag tickets to his concert in Arizona the first of December—looks like we'll be set for reading material for the trip.
