Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.
Autumn is here. It’s officially sweater weather. The leaves are already turning and there’s a slight crisp in the air. I love everything about the autumn so here are 10 books that will help you get into that autumnal feeling.
1. Long Way Home (Thunder Road, #3) by Katie McGarry: Do I really have to explain this one. The colour scheme for this cover just screams autumn to me. The book itself is exciting, with a hint of danger and tender moments.
2. Bittersweet (True North, #1) by Sarina Bowen: A grumpy, cider producing farmer? Need I say more. Some of the passages describing the apple orchard just had me wishing autumn would come sooner. The romance is center stage in this book, but there’s a certain coziness that comes with the setting.
3. The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi: I always feel like autumn is the perfect time for magic. There’s just something about the weather that has me turning to these magical wonderlands. The Star-Touched Queen is a sensory delight and the cover encompasses that magical feeling.
4. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: Autumn also paves way for more rainy days, and on these rainy days, I always find myself gravitating towards The Night Circus. It’s magical and captivating.
5. The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy, #1) by Sherry Thomas: A beautiful cover that embraces those autumnal colours. On top of that, this book is all about elemental magic. I feel like autumn is that time of year where you’re more attuned to the weather. There’s a crispness in the air that makes books on elemental magic a perfect read.
6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater: This book is required reading in the autumn. It literally encompasses everything we love about this time of year. I won’t say much because this is a book that demands to be read, but it will be worth it.
7. Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Golden Seer Trilogy, #1) by Rae Carson: I’ve not read this book yet, but I think this might be the next book I tick off of my to-read pile. There’s something about the cover that draws me to it.
8. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness: I’ve still not read a Patrick Ness book yet, but I always feel like A Monster Calls is a book that’s meant to be read in the autumn.
9. The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon: This book is supposed to be a fantasy readers dream. With stunning writing and an interesting concept, there’s no reason not to read this book in the autumn.
10. All the Truth That’s In Me by Julie Berry: I love this book, but I don’t talk about it as much as I should. The second prose narrative is really effective in this book and there’s something so simple in how natural the events of the book unfold.
Those are the books that make me think of Autumn?
