Nothing says fall quite like cuddling up with a cozy book. I’ve been slowly starting to get back into reading this season. It’s a great way to pass time before going to sleep or while you’re soaking in the tub (which is one of my favorite things to do)!
Here are a few reads I’m loving lately:
fall reading list
Blink takes you on a journey through the process of decision-making through compelling short stories. It explains intuition and how to learn to make better decisions in life. This book is perfect for someone who is second-guessing their choices and needs reassurance that they can trust themselves. Through every experience, you learn and analyze more than you think! And you’re wildly capable of doing right by you.
Brain on Fire is one of those books you can’t put down. The thrilling and captivating medical mystery has you leaning on the edge of your seat wondering what’s next! A true survival story, and a test of faith and strength. I first saw the film starring one of my favorite actresses, Chloë Grace Moretz, and knew I had to cop a read. You always hear that the book is better than the movie, and this is no exception!
This book dives deep into the photography fundamentals on composition, exposure, light, and lenses. It’s easy to read and understand — so whether you’re a beginner or pro, you’ll gain valuable insight on your craft!
If you don’t already know, I’m a professional portrait photographer. I’m self-taught, and a big part of self-teaching is finding photography content on YouTube and through literature. Have you self-taught yourself a new skill this year? If so, let me know in the comments below! And if you need some other recommendations for photography books or YouTube channels to learn from, ask me!
I stumbled across this gem on one of my thrift adventures. It was the read I so desperately needed at the time. Not only did Calm My Anxious Heart ground me, but it gave me clarity on my life at that moment. We spend too much of our lives worrying about what we cannot control. Learn to surrender, let go, and be free of your anxieties. It sounds simpler than it is, but this book really breaks it down and through reading it, you have a lot of ah-hah moments!
Dancing Letters is a collection of hauntingly beautiful poetry by my friend, Miguel Cruz. In the wake of words left unsaid, this book is unerringly similar to works by the famous poet, Rupi Kaur. When Miguel gifted me this book last year, I was inspired. I realized an untapped passion of mine — to write my own poetry book! Since then, I’ve been creating and collecting poems to publish when the time is right.

They say that those who read are smarter and work harder — and I’d have to agree! Take the time to learn new things. Indulge in a book a month to start out with so you’re not overwhelmed. Eventually, you can work your way up to a book every two weeks!
Switch it up! Read a murder mystery, then a self-help book, and then maybe some poetry. Whatever sets your heart on fire!
