Fall Book and Movie Ideas

This week for the Fall Favorites link up we're talking all about fall entertainment-- our favorite books, movies, TV shows, music, etc. that makes us think of fall.  I had such a tough time putting this list together but it was so fun!  I just love a good challenge!




Other than summer and Christmas, I don't often think of books as having a "season" but when I started digging and thinking I realized I wanted to divide this list into two--

MY favorite fall books:

The Geometry of Sisters by Luanne Rice-- After the loss of her husband and daughter, Maura moves back to Rhode Island to take a job teaching at a private school hoping for a new start for herself, her daughter Beck, and her son Travis. 


A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson-- Now I'm not sure when this story takes place but I think of hiking when I think of fall and this non-fiction novel about Bill's trip trying to hike the Appalachian trail is one of my all time favorite novels.


Dear Thing by Julie Cohen-- Romily offers to become a surrogate for her best friend Ben and his wife Claire thinking it will be rather easy since she is already a single mom with no desire to have another baby.  But all sorts of feelings overwhelm her and threaten everything. 




Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult-- When a dead baby is found in an Amish barn, Ellie finds a client who truly needs her help.  Katie Fisher is an 18 year old Amish girl who has been arrested for the murder of her baby.  In order to truly help her client, Ellie immerses herself in Katie's world learning what it means to be plain. 




Dear Bob and Sue- While most of this book does not take place in the fall I do often think of hiking and National parks when I think of fall and this book is a great & fun story of one couple's experiences visiting all 59 US Parks. 




Fall themed books on my list to read:

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen




Autumn Getaway by Jennifer Gracen



The Simplicity of Cider by Amy E. Reichert




Pumpkin Spice Peril by Jenn McKinlay (this whole series sounds cute and I just love a book that includes recipes!)




The Apple Orchard by Susan Wiggs



Movies that are perfect for fall:


Good Will Hunting






















Dying Young

    1. I realized as I wrote this list up that I hadn't shared some of these movies with my boys yet so we'll have to find these oldies but goodies.

  4. I have read and enjoyed a couple of books about cozy kitchens or bakeries that shared recipes, too. They always make me hungry, though.
