Pull on your jumpers, grab a blanket and hot drink and curl up with a good book…
It’s official, Autumn (or Fall, depending on where you are) is here!
I’m usually a summer baby, but this year I’m actually excited to snuggle up in many layers and drink countless cups of tea, coffee, and gingerbread lattes… yum!
But it wouldn’t be quite complete without a really good book which just puts you in the mood for the pumpkin season. So I’ve compiled a list of my top 5 recommendations for you this season.
City of Ghosts by V.E. Schwab
I loved this book. It’s a super quick read, so you could easily pick it up one weekend and have it finished in one or two cosy sittings. It’s mysterious, atmospheric, and perfect for the spooky season! Plus, it’s written by V.E. Schwab, so you know it’s going to be good, right?
Warning: contains ghosts.

Throne of Glass (Series) by Sarah J. Maas
I’m going to throw this one out here. Autumn is a great time to read fantasy and go on an epic adventure from the comfort of a blanket.
Throne of Glass is one of my favourite ever series, and with the upcoming release of the final, highly anticipated, Kingdom of Ash, there has never been a better time to read it!
There’s magic, assassins, romances you’ll ship so hard and a world you’ll be completely absorbed in.
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
This book contains dragons… DRAGONS. Dragons breathe fire and in autumn you sit by the fire, so it’s obviously the perfect book to read… see my logic?
But really, this book is great and The Caged Queen is released imminently, which I’m super excited about because I loved The Last Namsara. I read this last Autumn and it made my daily commute so much more exciting!

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I think this was actually on my Autumn/Fall recommendation post last year, but I still stand by it! One of my all time favourite books, this will give you all the feels.
ALL. THE. FEELS.
Zusak’s new book, Bridge of Clay, is going to be released this October, and reading The Book Thief in the comfort of your own home, accompanied by a box of tissues for your inevitable tears, is probably the safest place to read it…
Sky In The Deep by Adrienne Young
Vikings, bloodshed, and many, many gory details, this is EXACTLY the book you were looking for.
Sky In The Deep is dark and twisty, insanely intense and will keep you turning those pages furiously in your binge-reading sessions. There’s also some romantic tension and kick-ass characters who go on the most incredible journey throughout the course of the novel. What more could you possibly need?
Do you have any books you’d recommend for Autumn/Fall?
