I know it’s still summer, but I know that some of us are preparing for Fall already. Honestly, Houston is way too hot and I won’t see lower temperatures until October, but I’m ready to pretend that it’s cool.
Here are some of my Fall recommendations based on what mood you are in!
The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater – This whole series has such a different and spooky vibe. Clairvoyants, dead kings, creepy places in the woods. The Raven Cycle has it all and I love this series for a fun fall read.
One Day by David Nicholls – Okay, so maybe this is a touch sad, but the concept of visiting the couple on the same day every year is so appealing to me. It’s a book you can sink into and really cuddle up with.
Educated by Tara Westover – Set in the mountains of Idaho is this brutal and inspiring story of one woman’s struggle to figure out what is important in life. Tara shares the good and the bad of small town life and how she overcame her own preconceived notions of education and religion.
The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker – This is a gorgeous novel about reconnecting with family and learning to live in the wilds of Alaska. I cannot rave enough about how wonderful this book was from the family time to the swooning romance.
The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen – Talk about a pleasant surprise! Something about this book screams October to me. Maybe it’s the plague or the death? Either way, I was so thrilled by this YA fantasy and would recommend to anyone looking for some October vibes.
Sawkill Girls by Claire LeGrand – I am not a huge fan of scary books and I know that Sawkill Girls is not a super scary book. But the creepy factor of the village on this island is insane. Claire is by far one of my favorite writers, so I had to give this one a try and I was not disappointed. I loved it. Plus, the cover is gorgeous!
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevskey – This is my ideal fall book. Murder, self reflection and paranoia? What more could you ask for? If you haven’t gotten around to this one, I highly recommend it!
