It’s officially autumn, which means a couple of things. Firstly, it’s time for me to begin listening to an ungodly amount of Hozier songs. And secondly, it’s time for me to find some awesome books with autumn vibes to read in the coming months!
In case you also want to read some atmospheric books this autumn, I’ve compiled a list for you. I hope you enjoy it, and let me know what you think of the books I’ve included here!
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Was it published in 2011? Yes. Have I read it? Nope! I think this is one of the books that’s been on my TBR list for the longest, but I hope I can get to it this fall! Honestly, there are quite a few circus-themed books I want to read, and I’ve been thinking about making November into “circus month.” We’ll see how it goes.
The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow
I haven’t read this one, but it has witches in it, so obviously I’m excited to get to it! And based on what I know about this one, it has some pretty great autumn vibes, too. But, as I said, I haven’t read it yet, so I can’t guarantee that it’s a perfect fall read. Though, do let me know if you’ve read this one! Does it have all those autumn feels?
The Spirit Hollows by P.R. Brewer
I read this one at the beginning of this year and really enjoyed it! It’s a pretty unique and interesting read, and I definitely recommend checking it out if you like paranormal or fantasy fiction, since it’s a bit of a blend of both genres. If I remember correctly, there’s also a sequel in the works, so I’m excited about that!
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
This is another one I haven’t read yet but I’m looking forward to it. I really liked The Cruel Prince trilogy, so I hope I’ll Black’s other books, too, including this one. Plus, based on what I know about it, this one definitely seems to have some good autumn vibes! I think books about faeries can fit any season, depending on the particular book, but I think this one would fit the fall best if you ask me.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo
I mentioned Ninth House in last week’s post, where I talked about books with school settings. But this one definitely works for an autumn-themed book, too! After all, I’ve always related the start of school to the fall. Additionally, this book has great dark academia vibes, which I think are great for the autumn. (And the winter, to be honest, but we’re talking about fall today.)
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson
There’s something about ravens that just screams autumn to me. I don’t really know why, but it does. Plus, one of the characters in this book is the prince of the autumn court, so it definitely makes me think it would be a great fall read!
How The King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black
Another Holly Black book! I really enjoyed this one; even though it didn’t add much to the story, it was interesting to learn about Cardan’s past. But I think it’s the art style in the book, which I adored, that gives it autumn vibes for me. There’s just something very…fall-ish about the art. I don’t know.
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
Ghosts go perfectly for the fall, don’t they? I love this book, but I actually never wrote a review for it, since at the time I wasn’t consistently posting reviews for every book I read. But I will definitely re-read it at some point since I loved it, and then I can write my review for it! But, seriously, if you haven’t read this one yet, go get it! It’s such an amazing book, in so many different ways.
Natural Born by Morgan Perryman
Okay, the connection for this one is pretty obvious. The main problem at hand in the story is that something is killing nature. Obviously, that makes me think of leaves falling and whatnot in the autumn. I can’t remember whether there’s meant to be a sequel or not, so I’ll have to check that.
A Lesson in Vengeance by Victoria Lee
I have been looking forward to this one for a while, and since it was recently published, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy! It has dark academia vibes and witchcraft, so I think it’ll be the perfect read for this season. Plus, based on the plot description, it has some mystery elements, too. And since I think mysteries are good for the fall, that makes it even more perfect.
