What’s up, people?! It’s Top Ten Tuesday time!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was originally created by The Broke and the Bookish but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The theme this week is:
November 5: Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes (Autumn scenes/colors on the cover, autumn atmosphere, etc.)
The song that OBVIOUSLY goes with this post is Autumn Leaves by BTS. One of my fave songs by the group. LINK HERE.
Okay, so I did a LOT of Autumn themed books last month with my horror filled month so a few of these will be links back to them but ya’ll will deal because you love me.
Let’s do this thing
I feel as though since this series begins at the beginning of a school year it has always given off a very distinct autumn vibe. Combine that it’s obviously very witchy I’m going to think of crunchy leaves and bats flying through an orange soaked dusk.
Harry Potter to me is the perfect cold weather read and is perfect to settle down with a cup of tea and my Slytherin snuggie.
This was one of my series of the weeks and you can read about that here: Series of the Week: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
This is definitely one of my favorite books of the year. *Keeps note of that for my yearly wrap up*
And yes, apples are the main focus of this book. And curses. And banshees. Apples are also a staple in the fall. Apple picking, apple cider, apple pie. Reading this just made me long for that and the crisp fall weather so this definitely earns a spot in this post.
Check out my review for this amazing book here: Book Review: All the Bad Apples by Moïra Fowley-Doyle
Mooncakes is a graphic novel about witches, shape shifters, and magic. It’s also about two people falling in love so of course I am all over this.
There’s dangerous romps in the woods and the crunching of red, yellow, and brown leaves underfoot and cold breaths so fall feels are everywhere. This is a sweet, feelgood comic and you should def check it out.
My review is here: ARC Review: Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker and Wendy Xu
I don’t think I can ever go pumpkin picking without thinking of this book ever again.
My review: Book Review: Small Spaces by Katherine Arden
This is an anthology of stories about October and Halloween in general. Some are scary but most of them are just in the celebration of Halloween and the season. It’s a really great short story collection and I really recommend it if you’re like me and love this season as much as I do! There are a lot of gems and you don’t have to read it all in one go either.
And thus, ends my list. What are your of your autumn reads? Ofc, most of mine are scary lmao. You all know how I do.
Later days 🍂 🍁
