In my mind, I’m already in December, humming Christmas carols and eating sweets! However, as it’s Tuesday again and therefore time for my favorite tag, I’ll list all the books that give off autumn vibes whether that be the cover, the atmosphere or simply the plot!
#1 Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
Talking about autumn, I believe I have mentioned Stalking Jack the Ripper multiple times. But it’s simply true: the forensic medicine, historical London in the dark, foggy and cold streets and a murder on the loose – that’s autumn at its best!
#2 The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall
The Penderwicks on Gardam Street is by far my favorite autumn book in the whole wild world! It’s set in the beginning of September, the school years just started and we get to experience the falling leaves, Halloween and the rain!
#3 Silver by Kerstin Gier
A game to raise a demon that was started on Halloween last year and is said to end on this year’s Halloween night? Nothing screams autumn more than Silver with its games, rainy London and dream corridors…
#4 The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
This cover basically SCREAMS autumn with the green leaves and the gold frame… I’m super excited to finally read it!
#5 Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
With its dark atmosphere, the rainy cobble stones of Ketterdam and the unbearable cold of Fierda, Six of Crows is the best possible choice for an adventurous autumn read!
#6 The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock
The cover of The Smell of Other People’s Houses reminded me of autumn so much, I really had to include it on my list! Besides, it’s set in Alaska right after the it becoming the 49th state of the United States!
#7 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I don’t know why I feel this way, but a circus is just the right attraction to visit in autumn. Especially this one. Its candy, the artists and amazing tents all in black and white and additional red scarves – The Night Circus is a great read for the current weather!
#8 A Curse so dark and lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Another book on my TBR list that I had to include because of the adorable cover! The dark colors with blue, green and black firmly invite autumn to join them!
#9 Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
Am I the only one or does Leigh Bardugo seem to have a preference of making her books seem dark and cold?! Not that that’s a bad thing – I’m totally into the Darkling and the rainy streets of Ketterdam and Ninth House isn’t an exception here!
#10 Winter by Marissa Meyer
I know it technically says the wrong season on the cover, but Winter by Marissa Meyer fits perfectly because of the cover and I’ve always had such a cold vibe coming from it and I totally loved that!
That’s it – ten books that remind me of autumn in many different ways! Happy reading and happy autumn, I guess – even though it’s already Winter in my head!
