Fall 2021 Reading Guide

Welcome to the second 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 Fall Reading Guide

The 2021 Fall Reading Guide has forty-two new releases organized across seven categories and six classic novels.  You’ll also find some reading tips, fun things to do at home, and fall-themed recipes.

Fall Reading Guide Minimalist Reading

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.
