17 book ideas for the fall

I'm in a Roaming and Reading mood-- maybe it's because I don't have a travel adventure planned until December. Until then, I'm going to let some wonderful novels take me far afield.

I've been reading "The Undertow" by Jo Baker. And "Portrait in Sepia" by Isabelle Allende, one of my all-time favorite writers.

What are you reading? And has it been influenced by a place you've been or are going?

@KerriMPR Pearl S. Buck's "Pavilion of Women" on a vacation to the U.P. No connection but can't forget the book or the destination.
