The days of lounging lazily in the sun, SPF slathered generously all over your skin as you dive into a good book, might be ending, but that means we get to start fresh. With the dawn of fall comes crisp farmers’ market apples; warm, woodsy candles; and sweater weather—and what could be better to pair with all that than a stack of brand-new reads?
Luckily, this autumn will see the release of plenty of books that deserve a spot on your nightstand. There’s something for everyone—the thrilling follow-up to The Handmaid’s Tale, a celebrity short story debut, and a mix of authors widely admired (Ta-Nehisi Coates! Zadie Smith!) and up-and-coming. So what will you be reading?
