As I’ve mentioned before (and you’ll probably hear me say at least 1,000 more times between now and Thanksgiving…), fall is my absolute favorite season, and as much as I love decorating for Christmas, there’s just something about pulling out my boxes of fall decor from storage that awakens something inside of me: Anticipation. Excitement. A sense of peace. The joy I feel adding little pops of autumn to our home — pumpkins and leaves and apples and wagons — is a feeling I wait for eagerly once August rolls around and I’ve had just about enough of the heat and humidity of summer!
1. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
Gail Honeyman's Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine was our first pick for our 2018-2019 season, and we discussed it a few weeks ago during our September meeting. I knew there was a lot of hype around the book and wasn't quite sure what to expect, but I absolutely loved watching Eleanor blossom and find her sense of self — her place in the world — throughout the story. If you haven't read it, I highly recommend that you check it out!
