Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week, there’s a theme and you choose ten books that fit it. Check out upcoming topics here.
I haven’t actually read most of these, so I’m basing my choices almost exclusively on the cover. In some cases, it’s a mix of the cover and what I’ve heard about the book, but it’s really mostly just the covers 😛
In no particular order, as usual…
Uprooted by Naomi Novik– I don’t even know why this one gives me autumn vibes. Maybe the cover, maybe I’ve heard so many people say it’s perfect for autumn, maybe a combination, who knows.
The Sweep series by Cate Tiernan– Whether it’s the original covers, or the bindup covers, these books scream “AUTUMN!” to me. (It doesn’t hurt that at least the first one is set around the start of a school year, if I remember correctly.)
Anything By Moïra Fowley-Doyle– Her books beg to be read as the days grow shorter, the nights cooler, and especially around Halloween when there’s a feeling of a bit more magic in the air. (I haven’t read All the Bad Apples yet, but the cover still gives me the feeling that it’ll make a great autumn book.)
The Way of Wyrd by Brian Bates– I’ve only read about a quarter of this, but if I can ever get my hands on the ebook or audiobook, I’ll finish it (the text of the hardback was too hard for me to read). The cover and content–or at least what I remember of it–makes me think of autumn.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff– Literally, just the color of the cover. (But I’m also starting to think I tend to be most in the mood for sci-fi in the autumn.)
The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale– I don’t even know much about this one, but I added it to my TBR like two years ago after seeing the cover in a store. Something about it just screams “Read me in autumn!” to me.
Mooncakes by Suzanne Walker– The whole cover makes me think of autumn. The colors are like a softer version of autumnal shades, and it makes me think of baking, which makes me think of the colder months, and it looks like a cute and cozy read.
The Furies by Katie Lowe– This cover, plus how it’s set at a school (I think) just give off strong autumnal vibes in my opinion.
Bone Deep by Sandra Ireland– Something about this dark, kinda creepy cover makes me want to curl up with a blanket and a hot cup of something while the wind howls outside.
Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite– It’s mostly just the color of the cover that makes me think “autumn” with this one, but I think it would also be a nice book to read between the heavier/darker books I tend to reach for more in autumn, if I needed a break.
