Autumn reading: Suggested pages to turn as the leaves turn

Autumn is a beautiful time to settle into your rocking chair with a book. While the leaves turn, you can enjoy the comforts of a good read! Grand County Library District has a few suggestions.

The movie A Walk in the Woods just hit theaters, but you can read the original book by Bill Bryson. Wishing to reacquaint himself with America after spending time in England, Bryson sets off to hike the Appalachian Trail with his out-of-shape friend. This is a great book for the outdoors aficionado and anyone looking for a laugh.

For the dog lovers out there, The Possibility Dogs by Susannah Charleson is a great choice. Charleson trained search and rescue dogs for years and this book chronicles her shift into training abandoned dogs to act in psychiatric service.

If mystery is more your style, try Elizabeth is Missing, by Emma Healey. In this novel, a woman suffering from dementia attempts to solve the case of a missing friend – but has Elizabeth actually disappeared? A cozier mystery suggestion is The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall. This witty and well-written series features Vish Puri, India’s self-proclaimed most accomplished detective.

One of the newest books to hit our shelves is The Truth According to Us, by Annie Barrows. Barrows co-wrote The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and her latest novel tells the story of Layla Beck, a writer for the Federal Writers’ Project during the Depression, and the family she meets in rural West Virginia. It’s a wonderful and engaging piece of historical fiction, and the writing will make you swelter in the humid summer air.
