Fall 2023 Book Recommendations
  |  @   |  

Fall is almost upon us! This is my favorite season of the year in general, but also my favorite time for reading. There’s always a plethora of titles being released for the season, many of which are perfect for Halloween and even the Christmas Horror subgenre. I always have so much fun putting together my Fall reading recommendations not only because of all the new titles I’m anticipating, but also so I can look back on what was released earlier in the year and read anything I might have missed.

Below are some titles — with accompanying links to the print, ebooks, and audiobooks editions — that I personally am looking forward to this Fall, presented here in order of release date, starting with those releasing in September 2023. After this main list, I’ve included some titles that came out earlier this year that you might have missed that would be appropriate to read this Fall. At the end, I included recommendations for themed Cookbooks, Crafts, Guides, Coloring Books Sourcebooks, and Tarot Decks that would be great to dive into during the spooky season.

Movie Title Typos
Making Movies Better by Subtracting One Letter
Hardcover | Kindle Edition
Written and illustrated by Austin Light
Chronicle Books
Release Date: September 22nd, 2015

It sounds easy right? Take a letter out of a movie title to make a different movie altogether. For Movie Title Typos: Making Movies Better by Subtracting One Letter, Austin Light combined two passions — art and movies — to create a really fun little book. While he entered into “Inktober” (one drawing a day for 31 days), he got the “remove a letter from movie titles” idea from Reddit and married the two. He shared his drawings to Reddit, and the rest as they say is history. He creation quickly went viral, and even drew the attention of major film stars like Robert Downey Jr. and the late great Wes Craven.

  |  @   |  

Releasing your video game controllers and picking up a book hasn’t been easier since the release of Chronicle Books’ recent coffee-table beauty The Art of Wreck-It Ralph. It’s game on to explore this eye-catching, mind-blowing, and precisely-designed volume of exquisite artwork!

Disney’s attractive attention to detail carries through in this work from Chronicle Books. The Wreck-It Ralph touch literally permeates through each of the thick, glossy 160 pages. To the book’s benefit, the filmmakers behind the groundbreaking action-adventure flick serve as its writers. Disney-Pixar’s John Lasseter lends a kind, thoughtful preface to director Rich Moore‘s reflective foreword. Jennifer Lee, Wreck-It Ralph co-writer, and Maggie Malone, director of development at Walt Disney Animation Studios, seamlessly translate all of the fascinating film content to each portion of their co-authored book.
