Books and Beverages: Fall 2016 Edition

Folks, we are closing in on September 22nd, and you know what that means…it’s officially going to be Fall! This season we’ve got a fresh batch of book and beverage combos to quench your literary thirst. Read on to see which pair is the one for you before you go on your next café/bookstore trip!


cover_be-frank-with-meIf you like hot cranberry tea

Sweet, tasty, and family-friendly! If you’re a fan of the cold season classic, pick up Be Frank With Me. Julia Claiborne Johnson’s quirky and charming book will steal your heart—but not before first warming it up with the help of your steaming cup of tea.

There’s nothing like returning to where the home fires burn and enjoying a cup of fresh homemade apple cider…unless, perhaps, you’re one of the characters in Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth. This domestic drama about all the multifaceted and complicated ways that intertwined fates unfold when family get involved is perfect for a night on the couch with some homemade cider.

Whether it’s pumpkin spice, pumpkin chai, pumpkinspresso (is that a thing? It will be.) or whatever else, if you’re partial to the quintessential flavor of autumn, Today Will Be Different by Maria Semple will make a fine companion with your beverage. In it the hilarious and earnest Eleanor Flood must grapple with life, curveballs and all, and Maria Semple’s signature wit and insight will make the delicious drink in your hand that much more fulfilling.


Cover_The TrespasserIf you like London Fogs

While not set in London, Tana French’s The Trespasser (the latest installment of her Dublin Murder Squad series) will hit just the right spot with your tea anyway, as we reunite with detective Antoinette Conway, who must unravel what seems to be a clear-cut crime of passion and discover what deeper, more sinister goings-on lie underneath.

    Gina is a Marketing Assistant at MIRA. A west coaster with intense love for beautiful mountains and beaches, few things make her happier than escaping into some natural scenery to unwind. Gina studied both English and Criminology in university, so it should come as no surprise that some of her favorite reads are mysteries and crime fiction. If not with her books, she is most likely playing instruments (usually guitar) and singing obnoxiously or lost in the world of Pinterest with a cup of strong black coffee.
