I love Fall! And as far as I am concerned, the season officially started yesterday on September 1st. I’m ready for changing leaves, pumpkins everywhere, horror movies, autumn scented candles, and cozy nights spent reading. Here are some books that invoke the feeling of Fall to me, even if they aren’t necessarily scary.
Quite a few of these books are my go-to re-reads. I’ve read Harry Potter countless times by now, and The Night Circus is my all time favorite book (I swear I can smell Fall when I crack it’s cover). I’ve re-listened to the Historian audiobook many times (and I have a confession- I actually prefer the abridged audiobook because it has a full cast and eerie music and it’s just so creepy and atmospheric). When Autumn Leaves caught my eye long ago, and when I finally read it, I couldn’t believe I’d waited so long. And yes, I love the title and the color of the cover. The Sugar Queen, and really any of Sarah Addison Allen’s books, makes for a perfect Fall read, but this one is the one I think of most when I think of Autumn. Likewise, Maggie Stiefvater’s lyrical prose goes so well with a cracking fire and a mug of something pumpkin flavored. And Practical Magic! You know, I probably need to do a re-read because it’s been so long and I’ve watched the movie a billion times, so I no longer remember the differences between the two. It might be one of those cases where I prefer the movie to the book, but it’s been 20 some years since I read it. So maybe just watch the movie. 😉
Okay, my Bloggers Dressed In Blood, what are some of the books that feel like Fall to you? Comment below, or if you write a post, put in the linky in the pinned post!
