Books I Want To Read This Fall

book book pages college educationFall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the weather, the clothes, the food, the festivals – it really is a magical time of year. It is also the time of year for me to pull out my more spooky reads. Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m a giant weenie. So, no horror for me! But, books with a gothic/mysterious/atmospheric edge are definitely in the game.

So, here is a list of the books that I want to read this fall!
