Getting lost in a book and diving into a captivating narrative is truly one of my favorite things to do and a great way to connect with your own emotions and imagination. And the fall is a great time to wrap up in a cozy blanket, light a yummy scented candle, and open a book. (May I also suggest you turn your phone off? Like off-off?) If this sounds good to you and you're in the market for a new book, check out these perfect romance novels to read in fall 2018.
