As the weather begins to cool down, you may find yourself longing for some recreation to replace your favorite summer activities. Kicking back with these books will help you settle into fall, whether you're reading outdoors in the freshly-fallen leaves or curled up inside on a chilly night.
- "A Brief History of Seven Killings," by Marlon James – If Bob Marley’s music became a book about an assassination attempt on Bob Marley, it would be Brief History. Beautifully written by Jamaican novelist, Marlon James, this book is filled with a cast of diverse characters of damaged protagonists and despicable crime lords. All about sex, drugs and Bob Marley.
- "The Autobiography of Gucci Mane," by Gucci Mane – Gucci Mane. Wrote. A. Book. Read Guwop’s story in his own words. ’Nuff said.
- "Norse Mythology," by Neil Gaiman - At this point, Neil Gaiman can do no wrong. Now he’s taken stories that are thousands of years old and made them accessible to contemporary readers. The Norse gods are flawed and often times greedy and Gaiman makes sure that they bleed with human qualities on every page. It’s a quick read and great for those interested in myths.
- "One Day We’ll Be Dead and None of This Will Matter," by Scaachi Koul – Indian-Canadian writer Scaachi Koul brings a heavy dose of humor and heart with this collection of essays about her life. She pokes fun at her life and the lives of others. For instance, she trashes people who travel so they can “find” themselves.
- "It," by Stephen King – It is back, it’s relevant again and proves that King is still a great horror writer in 2017. Fall is here so give this classic another look while it’s still on the collective conscience.
