It’s official! It’s Fall! *Now* I can feel happy about seeing all those fall-time treats without thinking it’s too soon -right? So bring on the crispy weather, tasty treats, and promise of Halloween fun!

Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russell
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman
The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Southern Cross the Dog by Bill Cheng
And you? What have *you* recently read and enjoyed!?
