Fall Books September to December Part Two

Because of the sheer volume of books that are being published from September to December, I am going to do this post a little differently. This will be a shorter peek at each title, or just a title listing so you can plan your cookbook purchases based on knowing what is being released. For titles being released in July and August, my first preview post covered those months.

I picked these books because they appeal to me or I know they appeal to a great deal of you. There are other titles being published during this time that will be covered during our monthly roundups and I'm sure those busy publishers will be announcing more releases by the time the end of the year comes around.

If you are planning to purchase any of these books for yourself or as gifts, please use the Buy Book link as we will receive a small affiliate fee that will allow us to index more books. A note: some titles are being released in the UK and then later in the US - but now with sellers like Book Depository (one of our affiliate sellers) you don't have to wait unless you prefer the US version.
