Coming in a little early in the season, perhaps, with the best books I’ve read lately!
I realize fall won’t officially be over for a while, but I missed posting my favorite summer reads – and it seems a little late for that now!
So here, in no particular order, are the five best books I’ve read in fall 2022.

1. Blessing Your Grown Children by Debra Evans.
I started this book on my Kindle, and by the time I was halfway through, I ordered it in paperback so I could have it on my bookshelf. It’s definitely a book I plan to go back to over and over again. There’s so much wisdom here on building healthy relationships with your adult children. We’re just in the beginning stages of this, and I want to do it well!
2. The Italian Ballerina by Kristy Cambron.
To be fair, Kristy Cambron is one of my favorite authors and I’ve read all her books. I’m always eager to read her newest book, and this one didn’t disappoint!
3. Spouse in the House by Cynthia Ruchti and Becky Melby.
So this is a phase of life I’m not in yet, but, Lord willing, we’ll get there before too long! This book addresses the adjustments that come when both spouses are at home most of the time, due to retirement, a job that works from home, etc. The authors talk through the struggles and the blessings of this life season with realism and humor.
4. While We’re Far Apart by Lynn Austin.
This is an older book of Lynn Austin’s (I still haven’t read all of hers yet) and I really enjoyed it. It’s set in World War 2 and I found the characters and plotline moving and memorable.
5. One Night in Tehran by Luanna Ehrlich.
This is the first book in a series of 8 (so far) about a CIA operative named Titus Ray. I finished the author’s other series about Mylas Grey, a private investigator, and now I’m working my way through this one.
And here’s a bonus fiction and non-fiction selection!
The Sport of Matchmaking by Jennie Goutet.
This is the third in a series, but I don’t feel like you need to have read the first two to enjoy this one. It’s a light story about a young man and a young woman who’ve both determined not to marry…and although you can probably guess the ending, it’s still entertaining to see how they get there!
The Well-Watered Woman by Gretchen Saffles.
I actually mentioned this book as one of my favorite finds from August. After reading it on my Kindle, I ordered the hardback edition and am now reading through it a second time. It’s a great book to encourage women as they seek to grow spiritually.

I didn’t know that Kristy Cambron had a new book out! I’m so excited to get a copy and read it! And I love Lynn Austin! It’s been a while since I read While We’re Far Apart, but I remember that I enjoyed it.
I think you’re the one who got me excited about reading Lynn Austin 🙂 I haven’t read her books in any kind of order, but I need to choose a different one to read now.
I’ve read most of them, and I’m starting to reread them. I think the one I want to read next is A Woman’s Place. I’m slowly adding them to my personal library so my daughters can read them, too. (And because I just want them!)
Okay, I haven’t read that one so I think I’ll make it the next one on my list!
You know I’m not a big reader, but I would definitely be interested to hear more about blessing our grown children!
As usual, I find myself drawn to books about parenting that pertain to the life stage I’m in 🙂 I’ve found several good ones this year.
