18 Books Coming Out This Fall You’ll Want To Pre-Order ASAP


Once Fall is here and you can actually go outside without melting, packing a little picnic and having a solo reading sesh in the park is officially a possibility.

If you've already read all the classics (or you tell everyone you have, like I do), then it's about time you freshen up your bookshelf with some new novels.

Here are some novels debuting this Fall that you can overload your Amazon shopping cart with.

1. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling

Kaling's second book highlights her journey of being a hard-working, beautiful, flawed woman in today's world. If you read her first book of essays, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me And Other Concerns, then you probably already fantasize about being her BFF.

2. The Hours Count by Jillian Cantor

Cantor's 2013 novel Margot mixed fact with fiction, and her second novel takes on the story of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the last people to be executed for espionage in the United States. In midcentury New York City's Lower East Side, Millie Stein's friendship with her neighbor, Ethel, grounds her as the Cold War fear-mongering turns close-knit communities inside out in the endless, fruitless search for Communist spies

3. The Story of My Teeth by Valeria Luiselli

This will be Mexican author Valeria Luiselli's debut novel, in which she collaborates with the employees of Mexico City's Jumex juice factory. It's a fantastical story of a man on a quest to replace all of his teeth with a new set: Marilyn Monroe's.

4. The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

Atwood's latest novel is about a prison that offers a part-time job you can take in exchange for room and board. Sounds equal parts terrifying and hilarious, but it is actually a satire of modern society. Atwood explores freedom, security, and love in The Heart Goes Last, while addressing prison-industrial complex and economic inequality.

5. The Mare by Mary Gaitskill

In The Mare, Gaitskill tackles our society's standpoint on race, class, and age by taking us into the lives of a barren couple. This novel follows the relationship between a childless couple and the foster girl they let into their home.

6. Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff

Groff's 2012 novel Arcadia was a beautiful, yet weird tale about love and relationships. Her next novel delivers just as much funkiness, as it follows two crazy people in love.

7. Girl Waits With Gun by Amy Stewart

Who doesn't love a strong female character? Constance Copp takes on a gang that is threatening her family in Amy Stewart's debut novel. It's historical, thrilling, funny, tragic, and terrifying. The best part? It's based on the true story of one of the US' first female debut sheriffs.

8. I'll Never Write My Memoirs by Grace Jones

The iconic queen of Studio 54, the style goddess, the musical genius Grace Jones is finally ready to tell us her incredible stories at age 67. Her book is undoubtedly packed with stories you won't believe actually happened, as you read about a woman who lived a thousand lives in just a matter of decades.

9. Let Me Tell You by Shirley Jackson

Co-edited by two of her children, Let Me Tell You lets Jackson both terrify you and crack you up. This collection showcases Shirley Jackson's radically different modes of writing side by side.

10. Ghostly by Audrey Niffenegger

What's more fitting for the upcoming season than a book of ghost stories? Niffenegger is the bestselling author of The Time Traveler's Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry, but has taken a much different turn in this book of stories. She includes her own illustrations for each classic ghost story, and a even creates her own new unique tale.

Maybe this one isn't the best for a solo reading sesh…. Unless you're into that, of course.

11. Paulina & Fran by Rachel B. Glaser

Entirely culturally appropriate these days, Glaser's novel follows two very conflicted and confused art students in the throws of young love. One begins dating the other's ex (huge no-no, am I right?), and the jilted victim sets out to destroy the couple.

12. Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein

For someone who used to have the Portlandia theme song as her ringtone, this one is especially exciting. Brownstein's memoir is an inside look at the indie-royalty's career and life. From her rocky childhood to becoming part of the feminist punk-rock movement to her days as a comedic writer and actor, Brownstein brings us into the most intimate moments of her life.

13. Dryland by Sara Jaffe

Jaffe's debut novel will make you relive your awkward adolescent years all over again (in a good way, of course). Based in Portland, Oregon, Dryland follows a young girl named Julie as she copes with losing contact with her missing brother.

14. Bream Gives Me Hiccups by Jesse Eisenberg

Academy Award-nominated actor, Jesse Eisenberg has come out with his fiction debut novel, a book of short stories. He explores our world's modern insanities and takes the reader to ancient Pompeii in one of his pieces.

This sounds like the perfect companion to bring on an airplane this Fall.

15. Notorious RBG: The Life And Times Of Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik

SO. MUCH. YES.

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is an intimate look into the feminist Justice's career and how she is changing the world. Need I even say more? This lady is quite possibly one of the most interesting women, and she refuses to let anyone tell her she can't.

16. Two Years Eight Months And Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie

Rushdie's latest work of fiction blends history and mythology with a timeless love story. Set in the near future in NYC, a group of ordinary people discover they are all descended from the whimsical, capricious, wanton creatures known as the jinn, who live in a world separated from ours by a veil. If Greek mythology is your thing, you'll definitely want to bury your nose in this novel.

17. The Givenness Of Things: Essays by Marilynne Robinson

Robinson's book of essays explores the mysteries of faith, as she takes on her journey of examining all of the ideologies in contemporary society. She investigates how the work of Calvin, Locke, Bonhoeffer, and Shakespeare, and others have influenced not only humanity, but herself, as well.

18. Vivian Apple Needs A Miracle by Katie Coyle

In this sequel to Vivian Apple at the End of the World, Coyle takes on what it would be like to live in a world lacking integrity, while you still have integrity. It's not too far from what many of us already face in our own lives, and it'll have you examining how you'd make certain decisions in the face of adversity.
