Happy Tuesday everyone. This week’s TTT theme is Fall. This is my favorite season so this list was alot of fun to come up with. I am definitely a seasonal reader. I won’t read summer themed books in the winter or wintery books in the summer etc. I read with the seasons. I really enjoy Autumn, the vibrant colors, the cooler weather, pumpkin and apple picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving… it’s a cozy time in general. Here’s my list:
October 10: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover screams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish)
2. Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems This one has a permanent spot on my shelves and The Telltale Heart is a favorite so is The Raven. Poe’s dramatic and intense stories and poems make for perfect Fall reading.
3. When I saw this copy of Wuthering Heights I had to have it for my collection. This dark classic is one of my favorites.
4. Different Seasons by Stephen King. This cover is very Fallish and the stories inside are perfect for reading on cool Autumn nights.
5. The Taking by Dean Koontz is a favorite read. This beautiful cover can be reminiscent of Fall with the trees in the background and the story starts off on an eerie rainy morning.
This is my autographed copy. I wrote to Dean Koontz after reading The Taking to tell him how much I enjoyed his work, I included a crocheted gift for him. To my total shock and delight he replied and sent me a personally autographed hardcover copy and a note. 🙂
6. I recently finished reading Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman and this cover is gorgeous and screams Autumn.
7. I haven’t read this one yet, but Elizabeth Chadwick has a series of books like The Autumn Throne: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine that are on my wish-list. So are The Summer Queen and The Winter Crown.
8. I could never leave the Harry Potter series off this list. I read it twice. I want to go to Hogwarts and take Snape’s Potions class.
9. The Lord of the Rings series, beginning with The Hobbit scream Fall reading to me. Tolkien was a genius with his world building. Talk about a series to settle into on cozy Autumn evenings. I may have to re-read these one day.
10. Legends of the Fall by Jim Harrison has been on my wish-list for a while. I love the film version because, well, Brad Pitt.
That wraps up my list of books with a Fall theme. What books would make your list? Enjoy your day and enjoy the Fall season.
