Best Fall 2019 Books I Read for Review

Like always, the fall promises so many of the best books of the year. While I am anticipating so many books this fall, I have also had the opportunity to review many titles as well. Although I have reviews coming for all of the books below and more, today I’ll be sharing the best Fall 2019 releases I’ve read this summer and why they are all absolutely must-reads.

 The Other’s Gold by Elizabeth Ames

Release Date: August 27

The Other’s Gold has the perfect cross-appeal for YA and adult or literary fictions fans. Told in Elizabeth Ames’ beautiful and descriptive writing style, the book follows four best friends through their college years and early adulthood.


American Royals by Katharine McGee

Release Date: September 3

Two out of my top books of the year have something to do with royals, which of course includes Katherine McGee’s American Royals. This book gave me so many The Princess Diaries feels and I’m already screaming for the sequel.

The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett

Release Date: September 3

Jenn Bennett not only blessed us with one amazing YA contemporary this year (Serious Moonlight), but she’s also giving us her first YA historical fantasy, The Lady Rogue. I’m usually not the biggest fan of adventure books, but The Lady Rogue was just so much fun and I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two main protagonists, Theo and Huck.

Unpregnant by Jenni Hendricks and Ted Caplan

Release Date: September 10

Never have I ever thought that I would say that I’ve found the perfect funny YA book about an abortion road trip, but Unpregnant was just that good! Unpregnant is so much more than an abortion story, exploring friendship, self-growth, and the frustrating things women must go through for the rights to their body and choices.

The Tenth Girl by Sara Faring

Release Date: September 24

This gothic horror meets thriller read will leave your head spinning by the end, but I really enjoyed reading The Tenth Girl. While there are some plot twists that I don’t see coming in a few books, The Tenth Girl completely surprised me in all the best and mind-twisting ways.

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

Release Date: October 1

As expected, my favorite historical fiction author, Ruta Sepetys, completely delivered with her upcoming book. The Fountains of Silence takes place in an entirely new setting for her books, following teenage Texan Daniel in 1950s Castro-Spain. This book again tells such an important untold story and once again, Ruta Sepetys hooked me in from the get-go.


The Grace Year by Kim Liggett

Release Date: October 8

Many of you know by now that I’ll basically read any book that’s sold as the YA Handmaid’s Tale. The Grace Year was both an eye-opening and a bit shocking read with many feminist messages, as sixteen-year girls are forced to live in the wilderness to fight off their magic.

The Library of Lost Things by Laura Taylor Namey

Release Date: October 8

I think it’s natural for readers to love books with bookish settings or with book-loving characters, but The Library of Lost Things may be the book that best captures reader feels. I loved how much this story was about books, as well as family and romance.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Release Date: October 8

It’s absolutely no surprise that Ninth House is hands-down the best book I’ve read this year. Leigh Bardugo completely knocked this book out of the park. I’m not usually one for dark stories, but I was so invested in Ninth House, loving the blend of fantasy and contemporary.

Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren

Release Date: October 22

Twice in a Blue Moon was my first Christina Lauren book and it left me craving more of their work. This book again has such great cross-over appeal for YA and adult fiction fans, as the two main characters were each other’s first loves and find themselves reunited on a movie set years later.
