Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 but was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl come January 2018. It was made through the love of lists, books and to bring readers together.
Maybe for others some of the books I’m about to feature will give off vibes for other seasons, but for me these books feel like they should be read as the nights are drawing in though I can’t always think of valid reasons why I feel this is so, it is just a personal preference I suppose… Anyway, all the books on this list will be much anticipated books on my TBR that I so wish I could be reading now but I can’t because my current TBR is just so massive 😛 I will most certainly try to read these books in the darker seasons though when the time will come I still have no clue 😥😂 😉
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
While I still need to finish her TOG series and start her ACOTAR books, this is certainly a book I would want to read as the days get shorter because I’ve always felt dark fantasy mysteries are perfect for this time of year especially if the weather is horrible outside mmmm…
King’s Dragon by Kate Elliott
After reading and loving Cold Magic by this author, I have read a great deal about this older series which although sounds just like a typical medieval fantasy, I still want to give it a try mostly because of the high ratings also because I feel detailed western fantasies are great for fall time as for me there is a kind of coldness to them that is perfect for sweater weather, in my opinion 😉
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Apparently this series is supposed to be quite philosophical as well as dark and exciting, as I said before, perfect for sweater weather indulgence reading!
Entwined by Heather Dixon
As this is a fairy tale retelling I feel this is perfect for autumn because when I was young most of the fairy tales I had read to me were when the days were getting darker and colder which makes sense as the weather outside is less desirable. Anyone else have fairytales read to them when the year drew to a close?
The City & The City by China Mieville
I recall DNFing this a few year ago but curiosity is getting the better of me and I feel one day I’d like to give this another chance. As mentioned before, I feel these dark paranormal mysteries are great for the darkening days.
Dissolution by C.J. Sansom
Recommended to me by my support worker and she has even offered to lend me the whole series which she has at home… only my library TBR is out of control and she has made it clear that if she lends these books to me she wants them read soon. She has also said these books have a very cold and wintry vibe to them which for me only makes them more desirable 😛
Horns by Joe Hill
I NEED me some good horror books and this one sounds all the more disturbing which means I probably should have read this over Halloween though there is always next year.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Yes, yes, why the hell have I not read these books yet especially since I own the whole series?! These books would be perfect to indulge in when the weather is cold I just know it 😉
The Testaments by Margaret Atwood
I don’t think I was the only one who was jumping for joy when the author announced there would be a sequel to the Handmaid’s Tale which even I must admit was an intriguing well written book. Perfect for curling up with in my opinion!
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
No matter how many times I pledge to read more books from this author and of this type I just get sidetracked again and again 😛 I do feel however that if I read on in the Langdon series I would soon be pulled out of this go slow I seem to be in this season lol
Which books give you Autumn vibes? 🙂
