Fall’s Must Read List


Suggestions have been pouring in to me recently about new (and not-so-new) must-reads.  In the spirit of sharing, I’m passing them on to you.  If you’re looking to hide away on a chilly fall night, check to see if any of these reads sound interesting.   A lot of these recommendations came from other avid readers, but some of them came from the editors and agents at Women Who Write’s conference this past weekend.

  1. I’ll add Enclave and Outpost to the list. Enclave better than Outpost, but you at least got some of the back story in Outpost and was worth the read (but didn’t keep me up all night finishing it like Enclave).
