Four Books to Get Into the Cozy Fall Vibe, and Learn Something New

Is it really Fall already?? I always thought summer felt like it flew by because I was anxiously waiting for school to start, but now that I no longer have school in September, why is summer still so quick to go?

If you’re in Canada, you know we have two good months of summer weather, and then it’s cold again. It’s that time of the year, those two months are done, sweater weather is upon us. Time to get cozy and back into our regular routines! What better way to get into the mood, than to read cozy books full of love? Or how about those books that are just going to make us feel good, now that the sun can’t do it for us? And of course, in Fall, we get back into learning and improving.

And without further adieu, here are the four top reads for this Fall!

Classic: Rebecca
by Daphne du Maurier

Arguably du Maurier’s best book. This is the book I’m most excited about reading while crawling under the blankets during a rainy day. The narrator is an orphaned woman working as a maid, who marries impromptu a wealthy, recent widower. She can’t believe her luck, but of course there is a twist. Once the newlyweds arrive at their estate, the narrator realizes that his late wife has not let go. Mystery, romance, crime, this book has it all for a cozy night in.

Finance: Rich Dad, Poor Dad
by Robert Kiyosaki

My parents gave me this book years ago, and now its teachings are blowing up everywhere. I’ve always played it safe with money, however now I’m feeling the need to try something new, explore and expand. Although I am still a very cautious person, I need to learn more about it. This book is the perfect start, to learn all about how the rich stay rich, and passing this knowledge onto their children, to make money work for them, instead of working for money.

Classic: Wuthering Heights
by Charlotte Bronte

I’ve heard so much love, and so much hate for this book. I’m a little hesitant to put this on our reading list but I do love the classics, and the Bronte sisters don’t disappoint. This is a book of intense passion, of betrayal and revenge between Catherine and Heathcliff. The bitterness they caused still wreaks havoc years later. This is a new kind of book than the usual, where you’re supposed to love the main characters. From the reviews I’ve read, we’re going to hate them. Excited to try this little twist!

Self-Improvement: Essentialism
by Greg McKeown

Everyday, when I look at my To-Do list, I feel like it’s endless. Then when I really look into it, I realize that more than half the tasks are for people other than myself. I spread myself thin because I can never say “no” to anyone. This is why I picked this book, to give me that reminder of what is really essential in my life, and what I could do with getting rid of to make my life better, easier. I’m thinking of this book kind of like “Minimalism” for your brain.

Well, what do you think of these picks?! Are you excited for some love, adventure, vengeance, financial literacy, and cutting back? We have so many things to experience and change this cozy Fall season! I’m super excited to start reading these. 

Also, if you’re a fan of fiction, more than non-fiction, try reading them concurrently! Personally, I’m going through a non-fiction phase, but I can’t say no to a good novel, so when I feel myself losing interest because one book is slow, I’ll hop onto the other. That’s the great thing about non-fiction books, you don’t have to remember all the events and characters, so if you take a little break, you wont need to restart because you forgot who ‘Henry’ was, LOL!

I’m curious, what books do you have in mind to read this Fall? Why did you pick them? And if you’ve read any of these books already, let me know what you think about them!
