Happy autumn! Today’s post is about books with fall-y vibes. I’m going with books that feel like autumn, as opposed to having fall-y covers, etc. That’s another post, pbtbt. And by ‘feel’ I mean… well, I mean feel! I don’t know how to explain it to you man. Work with me.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – I don’t remember off the top of my head what season it is when the book takes place, but to me, the combination of the entire tone of this book would just go so well with bustling leaves and chilly nights, don’t you think?
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness – Again, same as above, I don’t remember the actual season in the plot, if it’s mentioned at all, but the spookiness of October just seems right for this book, particularly taking into consideration the monster that shows up, y’know. :p
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson – This one I do remember better. While it’s not fall throughout the book, they definitely enter a fall zone, and that’s the part of the setting that sticks out to me the most clearly, so it makes the list.
If We Were Villains by M. L. Rio – I feel like the cover alone could qualify this, but as I’ve already stated I’m not basing this off of covers. This one I chose because aside from the creepy tone throughout the thing, it’s also set in college, and in my mind college = back to school = hoodies and jeans. Fall.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss – Last one. I chose this one for the same reason as I chose the one above: the school setting. School and fall are basically inseparable in my mind. Why? Well, I mean, twenty-one years of going back to school in the fall will do that to you.
And that’s it! Lemme know what you think of the above! Happy reading!
