It's officially September and you know what that means: autumn is just around the corner.


I'm one of the few people in the world that doesn't care for summer, and I readily welcome fall with open arms. As much as I wrinkle my nose at the heat, I have enjoyed quite a few novels that put me in the summer mood this season.


Here are a few books that I recommend you get your hands on before the high temperatures relinquish themselves to autumn's grasp:

The Good Wife || A quick and easy read, The Good Wife sucks you in with romantic drama revolved around the hardships, and beauty, of marriage. The author, Jane Porter ponders the question within the drama if it's worth staying in a marriage when things seem too tough to withstand. Buy it HERE.

Dear John || A classic love story by one of literature's most romantic authors, Nicholas Sparks, Dear John tells the tale of a love tested by the military. Sparks keeps you guessing until the very end how the story will unfold, leaving you shocked on the final page. Buy it HERE.

A Little Bit Country || Two love stories for the price of one. Debbie Macomber and Raeanne Thayne team up to tell the tales of two girl-next-doors and their search for love. The perfect book for sitting on a bench in the park or on your back porch while the birds sing to you. Buy it HERE.

The Chance || Karen Kingsbury is one of my favorite authors. I bond with her stories, as her Christian values and life-changing stories connect with my own writing desires. This story is no different as it tells the tale of two individuals who believe they are too late for love - or so they think. Buy it HERE.

The Year We Turned Forty || This continues to be one of my most often recommended novels. Authors Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke put an interesting twist on turning a year older by giving three best friends the opportunity to return to the year they turned forty and change their lives most defining moments, both the good ones and the worst ones. Buy it HERE.
