Fall Reading List

Happy first day of fall! I am celebrating by spending the weekend in a big sweater and reading my favorite books. I am rereading some of my favorites and finishing new ones that I started. Here are the books that I want to finish in the next couple months:


First Avenue:Minnesota’s Mainroom by Chris Riemenschneider

First Ave. is a music venue in downtown Minneapolis that I go to fairly often. It opened in the 1970s and is still a huge part of our music scene even though a ton of other venues have opened in the area. If you are a Prince fan, he is from the area and played there so often that First Ave was featured in Purple Rain. I am so excited to learn more about this place that I love so much.

Order yours here.


Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves

This is one of those books that I have read a hundred times and will never get tired of. It is a very strange book about two very young sisters that become serial killers but the town that they live in has a lot of weird stuff going on. It is one that you have to read in order to understand. I highly recommend this especially for teens.

Order yours here.


The Divine Comedy by Dante

Most people would not force themselves to read books assigned to teens in school but this is one that I absolutely love. The descriptions of each circle of hell, seven deadly sins, and celestial spheres  are so amazing. Even being someone who doesn’t believe in what Dante is describing, I can appreciate the amazing writing.

Order your here.


The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

The Hobbit is one of my all time favorites, one of my most vivid memories from when I was around 5 or 6 is my dad reading the first chapter to me because the description of the hobbit hole was my favorite part. I don’t know why, but I never continued on to read the Lord of the Rings. Maybe one day I will but for now I will stick with this.

Order yours here.


Different Seasons by Stephen King

This one is a collection of four short stories that each take place in a different season my two favorites are Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption and The Body which were both made into movies, Apt Pupil was also made into a movie but I don’t enjoy reading that one as much.

Order yours here.


What books are on your reading list? Which ones should I add to mine?

Thank you so much for reading.

See you Tuesday
