Shelf Life|Fall Reading Recommendations


Fall is officially here and flying by very fast. There's nothing like cuddling up on a chilly fall day reading a good book and drinking hot cocoa. I recently went on a book shopping binge and brought a dozen of great new fall releases. I love reading books and find it very therapeutic. Turning off the TV and reading a good book can take you to a whole new destination. 

So today I'm sharing my fall reading list with you all. This list includes some new releases and a few old favorites.
