My autumn book picks are here and there are some really great books to explore this time of year!
Educated by Tara Westover is by bookclub’s book pick of the month and is a true story about the human spirit and the adversity to overcome obstacles in her life.
In Pieces by Sally Field is another memoir about overcoming adversity, pain and loss by one of America’s most talented and beloved actresses.
Whiskey When We’re Dry by John Larison is set in the old west and written by a first time author about an orphan girl who also overcomes adversity. I see a theme in my reading material this fall.
Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon is her account of growing up in the south and the combination of beauty and strength that make southern women who they are. I finally found out what the phrase ” Bless your heart ” really means when it comes from the south.
Joyful by Ingrid Fetell Lee is about the power of ordinary things that create true joy in our lives.
