Three books to read this fall

Despite classes being around the corner, I enjoy taking an hour or two out of my day to sit down with some tea and a book. I may not have time to finish it in one sitting as I would during the summer, but I always make some time for some reading. Because of this, I have compiled a three-item list of books I plan on reading in the fall.

A Lot Like Adiós by Alexis Daria

This book is about a romance that takes place in New York City. It is about a Latina, who is jet-set on prioritizing her career and has a mutual crush on her best friend. Said best friend returns to the city since having left for Los Angeles, Calif. years prior.

Frankly, this book seems to be right up my alley. I enjoy second-chance romances as much as the next person and I’m also a sucker for Latinx-centric stories for obvious reasons. I know that I’ll be picking up this book once it’s released. 

Fault Lines by Emily Itami

People always say to not judge a book by its cover, but I took this literally when I came upon this novel as I searched for soon-to-come releases. The cover of this book was decorated with cherry blossoms and a cityscape, which instantly gave me Japanese vibes. And rightfully so because the book is about a Japanese housewife in Tokyo, who leads a double life of motherhood and restauranteur.

This book can be preordered on Amazon.

The Pain Gap: How Sexism and Racism in Healthcare Kill Women by Anushay Hossain

Educational books on serious topics involving women always make for a compelling read. This book by Hossain touches upon the biases that burden American healthcare. With true stories about American women, who have had to deal with issues in the medical and health fields, it expresses the faults that the systems have.

This book is available for preorder on Amazon.
