PARADE MAGAZINE

MEGAN O'NEILL MELLE



There’s a literary harvest of major fall books this season, which means you won’t have a problem finding good reads to add to your TBR pile. We’ve got debut authors, literary superstars, made-for-TV writers, celebs and multiple Pulitzer Prize winners. So we’ve done some investigating, interviewing and lots of reading to gather the books we’ve loved so far this season, from contemporary fiction and mystery must-reads to gothic horror (tis the season) and memoirs by famous faces. Check out some of our favorite books of fall.




Best Fall Books of 2021



Once Upon a Wardrobe by Patti Callahan

Callahan has read C.S. Lewis her entire life (and has already given us Becoming Mrs. Lewis), so it’s no surprise that the author’s fascinating work would inspire her latest novel.


This time, she’s asking, “Where did Narnia come from?” In Once Upon a Wardrobe, a dying 8-year-old boy (captivated by a new book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), asks his Oxford physics prodigy sister to find its origins. His older sister is drinking tea with the author in search of answers—and hope. BUY THE BOOK
