Yackety-yak: Dreaming a Little Dream of Fall


I'm craving fall. The falling leaves, the vivid autumn colors, the pumpkins and gourds, the long sleeves, the knit caps, the warm cider, the fuzzy socks... *le sigh* I feel the tingle.
So while I wait for the summer days to wane, I'm wondering do you have any fallesque books you can recommend me? Even something Thanksgiving related would help.

  1. LOL.... you forgot the pies :)

    Nope. Nothing. I keep getting Christmas books but haven't seen anything for fall.

  2. I love fuzzy socks, adore! :)

  3. Ugh! I am hanging onto summer as long as I can! I am still reading beach reads!
    I will try to think of fall books for you and get back to you if I think of any.

  4. Fall reading -- excellent question! I remember reading Thank You For All Things by Sandra Kring years ago and really enjoying it. And I think the cover features a little girl throwing leaves! :)

  5. I'm craving fall too, it's been hot way too long here and I'm ready for that nice cool weather:) I like sweatshirts and sweatpants, they're perfect for reading!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Gina: How could I forget the pies? LOL :) I'm so happy to see Christmas books (I'm ready for the entire holiday season to kick off) but I can't help but wonder why there isn't more fall books.

    Nina: Right? Me too :)

    Walltowall: *giggle* Oh and thank you. I would love that. :)

    Meg: Thank you SO much for the suggestion. I'm off to sample it on my Kindle now. :)

    Jenny: Amen sister! *high five* As for sweats, oh me too. And old sweatshirt is like an old friend.

  7. One of my favorite fallesque books is Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury--SOOOOO GOOD.

  8. I cant wait for fall...I can already start to smell it in the air!!

    This morning it was 65 degress here in my little corner of Michigan!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Degrees!!
    Hello learn how to spell Tina!!!

  10. Shannon: Ooooo cool. I'll see if my library has it. Thanks so much for the suggestion.

    Tina: Right? Don't you love it. It was cool this morning too :) I feel like shouting out my door, "Take that summer." :)

  11. Fuzzy socks, long sleeves...Yes, please! I'm so over the heat. I want to sip coco on my porch and watch leaves breeze by.

    *longing sigh*

  12. Missie: Ooooooooo yes yes! In my fingerless gloves (I love those silly things and they make it easier to grip the mug)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thank you so much for all the comments on my blog! What fun I had reading them all!

    And..... What the heck????? They better not cancel Combat Hospital! I swear! They cancel all the shows I like! If I like it, you better not watch it, cause it'll be canceled!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Walltowall: OMG Mr. Whimsy and I were ticked. (Did you notice they cut an episode? We had to go online and find a Canadian site that would let us watch the missing one.) Word in Blogland is it's not doing well enough here in the states. SO aggravating. We suffer from the very same dilemma. Every time we like a show, it gets canceled. Grrrrr

  15. I hate to say goodbye to the summer. You might want to try Strangers at the Feast by Jennifer Vanerbes.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Bermuda: Really? Is it you're favorite season? Thanks for the recommendation. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. You and me both. I already stopped by Starbucks for my first Pumpkin Spice latte of the season, and pulled out the recipe for pumpkin brownies! I tend to read Agatha Christie in the Fall. And it seems like I always re-read my House of Night books in the Fall too. I have to make myself wait for the Christmas books though. I re-read The Christmas Chronicles (three stories by Jeff Guinn) every year. <----The Autobiography of Santa Clause is awesome!

  18. BookJunkie: OMG that is SO on my agenda. I need one of those lattes. Pumpkin brownies? Tell me more!

    Agatha in the fall? Good idea.

    I'm crazy for the holidays. I can't wait to start reading Christmas books. I think I will wait till after Halloween and start officially Nov. 1st.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fall is so far away in Texas. I would settle for anything under 90 degrees. Love the pictures and please post any fall book ideas you get. I would love to read a fall book.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'll email you the recipe for the pumpkin brownies, if you like? They are so yummy, and make your house smell amazing while they are baking!

  21. Is it sad to admit we don't have fall season in this part of the world? >_< We do have nice "winters" though! I suspect it's similar to fall season.

    ReplyDelete
  22. *thinks about it*
    I fear I can't think of any fall books

    ReplyDelete
  23. I always get this feeling when the seasons are ready to change. I got the fall feeling a couple weeks ago and it made me sad. I truly hate the cold...but I have to admit there is something very cozy about the fall. And in the south it can be absolutely beautiful at times. So though I can appreciate the season...i still don't much like it because I know that winter is coming soon after. Now as for fallish books, hmmm...I think I'll have to get back to you, can't think of any fallish ones.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can't think of any fall books right now, but when I do I'll get back to you. Just wanted to say that I'm looking forward to fall, too! It's my favorite season. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Okay I couldn't think of anything, but I found an amazon list that has books for each season.

    http://www.amazon.com/The-Time-of-the-Season-For-Reading/lm/RWW4U4U5XCO85/ref=cm_srch_res_rpli_alt_6

    Hope it helps!

  26. Cari: I can imagine. Up until this summer I lived in Florida which is quite similar. I will get the fall going :)

    BookJunkee: Oooo that would be lovely thank you!

    Dazzling Mage: O that is a bummer. You'll have to share all your lovely winter pics.

    Blod: Odd right? I feel as though their should be more.

    Jade: Oooo I love the cold. And you're right, it can be so beautiful in the south. Please let me know if you think of anything.

    Penelope: *smile* Mine too and thank you so much for that list. I'm off to check it out.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Squashed by Joan Bauer is the only I could think of right now...though I haven't read it yet.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Jenny N: Why thank you! I will look for it at the library. :)

    VV: I know right? I need some yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Autumn! I can haz? My favorite season. Scarves, spices and early Christmas shopping.

    I've also heard that Strangers at the Feast is good (haven't read it myself).

    ReplyDelete
  30. Cecelia: Amen :) How could I forget Christmas shopping :)

    Thanks for sharing what you've heard about Strangers at the Feast :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. The fall always makes me feel like it's time for a creepy book. Have you read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova? Perfect fall weather and creepiness all wrapped into one!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think I'm in the same boat as you! I can never seem to find very many good Fall books, so I'm scouring the comments here to pick out a couple for myself. ;o)

    Oh, and you should definitely consider Fall Mixed Up...it will be perfect! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Natalie: :) Lots of folks make that connection :) Thanks for the idea.

    1stDaughter: Right? It's tough! Definitely a whole in the market. Fall Mixed Up sounds SO cute. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pretty pictures! I'm looking forward to Fall, too. We don't really have a leave changing time of year. But it does get cooler and I can't wait! It was 110 on Sunday! Yuck. I'm sick of the hot weather...one more month then I can wear my sweaters!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm so not ready to let go of summer weather yet - I feel like I haven't worn my summer clothes enough to move back to Fall/Winter clothes (which I was still wearing in July...). But I am looking forward to having a pumpkin spice latte again soon!

    As for books, I usually feel like reading classics in the Fall - yesterday I started Jane Austen's Persuasion. Maybe it's the back-to-school vibe that makes me feel like I should be all scholarly and serious.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Julie: This is my first year in a looong time being somewhere were the leaves turn. I can't wait. 110? Yikes.

    Alita: You were wearing Fall and Winter in July? Where do you live?
    I got a pumpkin spice latte today. SO SO good.
    Classics in the fall? Very cool idea. I never would have thought of that.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman is a beautiful fall-esque read!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Midnight: Ooo thank you for the suggestion. The cover is definitely lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am so ready for Fall weather! The fashions are fantastic. I love my skinny jeans, knee-high boots, and leather jackets.

  40. I wish I could help but I have nothing. Plus I'm in Texas so I can't even begin to think of Fall. Other people's fall is kind of like our winter :). Maybe I'm exaggerating. We probably get a month or two of winter.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Bonnie: Me too :) Leather jackets! *le sigh* Thanks for stopping by btw.

    Alexis: I feel ya girl. This is my first time (in a realllllllllllllly long time) living outside Florida which like Texas doesn't get fall.

    ReplyDelete
  42. YES! Why can't fall get here sooner? I can't think of any fall books off the top of my head. Which means someone needs to write one. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Today it was 63 degrees and a bit rainy...but oh, the temperature was perfect! I do love me some fall weather! It's actually my favorite time of year!
    And something to read? Hmmm, have you read The Night Circus yet? It is so intriguing, unique and totally unpredictable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm totally craving for Fall too! My favorite season :) And winter actually. I just love the "festive" feel. Plus I love wearing boots and leggings!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I completely love your blog. Ive been reading the types of books featured for a while but didnt know what kind to call them - Alice Hoffman, Sarah Addison Allen etc. I am an autumn/winter lover too!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Meredith: *smile* Yes! Exactly! I hope someone sees our call :)

    Stacy: Amen sister. I'm with you. I just love it. I haven't tried the Night Circus yet. Does it feel fally?

    Jillian: I love Winter too :) The accessories are the best :)

    Snail Girl: Oh yes Magical Realism is perfect in the fall. Good call! I adore Sarah Addison Allen and Alice Hoffman. I should totally pick up a couple of those. Thank you for the suggestion and thank you so much for coming by and commenting :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. No, I don't really have a fallesque book, but I do love autumn! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. aww, that second pic is adorable. i love fall too :)

    I just saw a thanksgiving book that is coming out from harlequin's love inspired historical line. I'm not sure of the title, but it's on their website for the October books. I think I'll have to get it! I'll let you know if I think of any others :)

    And pumpkin brownies??? YUM

    ReplyDelete
  49. Fall is in the air here! It's already cooling off (too quickly!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Cherry: :)

    Carrie: I tried to find it and couldn't :( so please please let me know if you remember it :)
    As for the brownies, I know right? I will have to make them and take a picture for ya'all.

    BB: Ooooo where do you live?

    Mrs. Q: :) Thanks for popping by. Fall is perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It actually got in the 50s where I live yesterday, and I pulled out my pumpkin candle in excitement! :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Bluerose: Oooo how lovely. And your pumpkin candle sounds scrumptious.

  54. Awesome pics, Juju. Now I'm longing for Fall!

  56. "I remember it as October days are always remembered, cloudless, maple-flavored, the air gold and so clean it Quivers". a quote from a book I just finished "Peace Like a River" by Lief Enger. It was beautifully written.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Kaye: Maple-flavored? Quivers? *le sigh* What a beautiful description.

    ReplyDelete
  58. As much as I LOVE autumn, I just can't part with summer yet. We're just getting it here! ;) xo

    ReplyDelete
  59. wow, so many comments. Anyway I love fall too. For temperature I like spring and fall weather, but fall has no mud so it is my favorite. Love the pictures you chose.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Mary: :) Thanks and thanks for stopping by. I've missed you!

  63. I am so ready for fall. It's my favorite season, but it's always so short here! Hm, I'm not really sure about fall books...I should look into that. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Small Review: Where do you live that's it's short? Let me know if you think of anything ;)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have nothing to reccommend for Fall perse...though I've starteed myself on a Witchy reading path for the next few weeks...Halloween on the brain!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thanksgiving at the Inn was a book I read last year around this time.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Oh I just thought of another: Squashed. Its a super cute, easy to read book with a good message.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Melissa: Ahh yes I do love witch stories this time of year. I think I'm going to re-read Practical Magic. :)

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Gina Precious: Thanks darling! I think I have Thanksgiving at the Inn on my Kindle and I marked Squashed as one to check out from the library :) Thanks doll!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, I cannot wait for fall...I'm so tired of the overly warm weather (especially when most of my college classes are in the older, much hotter, buildings! Absolute torture!)

    Hmm, fall books? I'll have to think on that one for a bit :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. YA Book Queen: Amen! And yay I hope you think of some :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. Ohhh, I love fall so much! It never lasts long enough here, and sometimes it feels like we go straight from summer into winter. I can't wait to get out and take pictures of all the beautiful autumn things, and to go apple and pumpkin picking and go on hayrides...oh man, now I'm really jonesing lol. As for fall books, I'm drawing a blank - will have to think about that! New follower. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  72. SweetMarie: Oooo yah I can imagine in Canada it would feel that way. :)
    Oh me too! That's one of the biggest things I'm excited about: taking pictures.

    And can you believe I've never been pumpkin or apple picking? (I'm originally from Florida)

    Thank you so much for visiting :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Eek, I'm drawing a blank too! But I saw you had *79* comments on this post, so I had to see what everyone was writing. I just got an ereader and want to download some new books for fall!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Passport: No prob :) I will do my best to bring some autumn cheer and ideas around :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. I am also ready for Fall. The smell of cinnamon and apples, fall leaves, the crisp air....I just love it!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Jenny Girl: :) Me too. Can't come soon enough.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Although I'll miss summer, I love fall too. I really love it when it just starts getting cold and I get to wear my many, many cardigans that I love to death. Any fallesque books? Huh, can't thing of anything right now. Lovely pictures by the way ;).

    ReplyDelete
  78. Bere: Thanks :) And ahhh yes the fall fashions are such fun! :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I LOVE fall! I already started with some fall dishes...turkey chili and apple-stuffed porkchops. :)
