The 2022 Fall Minimalist Reads List

Welcome to the third annual BiblioLifestyle Fall Reading Guide!  While I get most of my reading done in the summer, fall is my favorite reading season.  It’s so comforting to cozy up under a blanket in the cooler weather with a cuppa and a book.

About The 2022 Fall Reading Guide

The 2022 Fall Reading Guide has twenty-seven new releases organized across nine categories.  There is also one extra category dedicated to the minimalist reader.  The Minimalist Reads List is for those readers who are only planning to pick up a few books this season.  Because we’re all about lifestyle here, you’ll also find some reading tips and fun things to do at home, along with some fall-themed recipes.

The 2022 Fall Reading Guide Minimalist List

In the guide, we have dedicated one category to the “minimalist reader.”  In addition, our Minimalist Reads List has eight titles that we highly recommend if you’re only planning to pick up a few reads this Fall!  

It’s super hard narrowing an initial list of hundreds of books down and then narrowing them down to our top eight.  However, you can expect these books to be across genres, beautifully written, compelling, thought-provoking, enjoyable, and great for discussions.
