Autumn Reads

November 2, 2018

Make space on your bedside table because the best season to Read Books has finally arrived. Fall is by far my favorite season: crunchy leaves, cold days, coats, candles, cocoa, cozy blankets and of course, good books.

Check out my picks of Autumn Reads below...

1 The Book of Impressions

The Book of Impressions

Havelock Ellis | Memoirs & Biography

Rating:

For many years I have been accustomed to make notes on random leaves of the things in Life and Thought which have chanced to strike my attention. Such records of personal reaction to the outer and inner world have been helpful to my work, and so had their uses. But as one grows older the possibilities of these uses become more limited. One realises in the Autumn that leaves no longer have a vital function to perform; there is no longer any need why they should cling to the tree. So let them be scattered to the winds!

8 I Am Not My Brother's Keeper

I Am Not My Brother's Keeper

Amelia Bradford | Drama

Rating:

This is a true story about children hurt by their own parents. It's about not doing the easy thing, the common thing, and turning away, and it's about the long, hard, expensive fight to do what's right. It's a success story, too, (if that's the right phrase) about a family torn apart, about parents prosecuted, convicted and jailed and children given another chance. It's the story of a flawed justice system that, for all its errors, all its faults, in this case, did what we hope it will. It's about what the words - family, love and responsibility - really mean, and, most of all, it's an example for those of us who care about kids enough to do more than talk about it.
