Here are some fall must-reads that are perfect for curling up with on a crisp autumn night:
1. Y by Marjorie Celona
A baby girl is left at the steps of the local YMCA. This book traces why it happened, what’s next and all the questions in between in a touching, poetic journey about identity and finding one’s way in the world.
2. Magnified World by Grace O’Connell
After her mom dies, Maggie is forced to face some tough questions — and the bizarre blackouts she experiences don’t make matters any easier. When she makes a new, curious friend, she unlocks an unlikely key to discovering her past, and reshaping her future.
3. Where’d You Go Bernadette? by Maria Semple
This quirky book is filled with all the ups and downs of modern day family life, albeit with one very big twist: Bernadette goes missing! Sharply written and laced with the author’s keen wit, it takes a look at how we humans function (and sometimes malfunction) in our chaotic contemporary existence.
