Fall reading anyone?

Summer is over officially. I know the days are still pretty warm but it is September and we are all anticipating cooler weather. 
The kids are back in school and home order is slowly being restored.

Now what to read for fall...???

 I love to read based on seasons. Summer is time for fun, fluffy stuff. Janet Evanovich, May Kay Andrews and Celia Rivenbark are my go-tos for summer. Autumn brings me to books with a more serious (not Tolstoy serious) tone. Elizabeth Berg, Sue Miller are some authors I have read in the fall before; but what about now?

Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
A year in the life of two pioneer girls.

Cider House Rules by John Irving
An orphan in 1900's Maine and the complex issues he faces.

Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg
A woman starts over after the death of her husband enjoys the simple things in neighbors, friends and love.

Sycamore Row by John Grisham
The sequel to A time to Kill. I need to follow up with Jake and Carla after the murder trial that changed their lives.

And one "work" book:

Happier at Home: kiss more, jump more, abandon a project,read Samuel Johnson and my other experiments in the practice of everyday life by Gretchen Rubin
A school year project to get more out of life at home.

Happy Fall Ya'll
