The Best Books to Read in the Fall

I’ve been really into fall this year, and I think it’s because temperatures still average about 90 degrees here every day. Being super into fall themes helps me feel like fall is actually here, even though it doesn’t feel like it where I am. Second, I walked into a mall last week (it was not even officially fall yet) and half of the stores were decorated for Christmas. There wasn’t even a Halloween decoration in sight. That is completely unacceptable to me. Fall deserves its time!

In honor of celebrating fall and rainy weather to the fullest, today, I thought I would share with you the books I believe are the best books to read in the fall. Let’s keep that fall spirit as alive as possible!

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.

The Best Books to Read in the Fall

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.

Harry Potter

It’s probably the back-to-school start and all the rain, but Harry Potter will forever mean fall to me. This year, I’m reading through Harry Potter with my kids, so I’m excited.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.The Hunger Games

Something about adventures and revolution seems to go along in the fall. I’m not sure why The Hunger Games Trilogy reminds me of the fall, except perhaps because I first read it in the fall? At any rate, I love reading these books when it’s wet and cold outside.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.The October Country

The October Country is a short story collection by Ray Bradbury, with one story in particular titled “The October Country.” There is a pretty obvious connection to fall in this story.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.Redwall

Redwall is all about food, and if you have never read the books, they are worth it for the meal ideas alone. I always feel so hungry after reading Redwall. I love the food descriptions which sound like the perfect thing to serve on Thanksgiving.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.A Series of Unfortunate Events

A Series of Unfortunate Events is slightly spooky, which makes it perfect for fall weather. I’m excited and a little nervous for the new reboot arriving on Netflix soon.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.Howl’s Moving Castle

Stories of magic and adventure remind me of fall. I think if I had to guess which time spirits would walk the earth, I would definitely pick fall. I guess out ancestors felt that way too, which is why Halloween exists! Get it all in Howl’s Moving Castle.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors is a somewhat depressing short story collection by Neil Gaiman. When I read these stories, I feel like I am out in the mist somewhere with something spooky about to happen.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.The Gemma Doyle Trilogy

The deep primal way that magic is addressed in this series of books makes The Gemma Doyle Trilogy one of my favorite YA magic series. Although it has creeped me out on several occasions, the writing captures the spirit of a cold, English fall.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.The Lord of the Rings

What better way to celebrate fall weather than by curling up and reading epic adventures? After Harry Potter, I’ll probably have to tackle The Lord of the Rings series with my kids. It may be 10 years from now.

Love books? Love the fall? You won't want to miss this list of books I revisit every fall featuring the best books to read in the fall.The Time Traveler’s Wife

Time travel is weird, and The Time Traveler’s Wife is weirder. It appeals to my geeky science side and my love of magic and slightly depressing literature at the same time. This book belongs on any fall reading list.

Tell me, what are your favorite books to re-read in the fall? Or do you prefer to read new books every year?

5 YA New Fall Books to Get Excited About This Season

 

If you love YA books, you won’t want to miss the new YA fall books that are coming out this fall! Your TBR pile just got much bigger. 

If you love YA books, you won't want to miss the new YA fall books that are coming out this fall! Your TBR pile just got much bigger.

This is a guest post written by Caroline from Culture Coverage. 

5 YA New Fall Books to Get Excited About This Season

This year has already offered a slew of amazing YA titles such as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and that trend isn’t slowing down. This season offers some of the best fall books from a variety of genres. You might even need a new tote to carry around all these amazing new books.

Tales of the Peculiar

Ransom Riggs

If you enjoyed Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, then you’ll want to pick up Tales of the Peculiar when it hits bookshelves this fall. Rather than a sequel or prequel, this is more of a companion book to the bestselling novel. It collects all of the stories of the peculiar world and compiles them into a sort of fairy tale collection. It also gives clues as to the location of time loops introduced in the series. Featuring stunning illustrations and annotated by Millard Nullings (Miss Peregrine’s ward), this book is sure to keep people occupied and excited for the movie coming in December 2016. While written for the YA crowd, there are some fairly gruesome and twisted sections. If you’re squeamish, this might be a book to avoid. Otherwise, if you loved the series, you should read this book.

 

The Light Fantastic

Sarah Combs

April 19th is a day that changes the life of multiple people around the country. This happens in small ways for some and huge ways for others. Nonetheless, no one is the same after that day. Not April Donovan who just turns 18 nor Phoebe who starts questioning a cross-country ploy. Combs manages to weave together a single book with multiple narrators and explores a generation of teenagers stifled in shame and isolation. Will they be able to move out of the dark and into the light?

 

Reviewers are already giving The Light Fantastic high praise thanks to its lyrical writing and focus on real-world issues.

When They Fade

Jeyn Roberts

At the time, confiding in an adult about an illicit affair between a teacher and a student seemed like a good idea. However, now Tatum finds herself ostracized by the entire town and branded as a liar. The bullying increases until there’s no longer any safe place for her to go.

 

One night, Tatum picks up a hitchhiker who has an ethereal quality about her. They don’t talk much, but suddenly the hitchhiker turns to Tatum and suddenly tells her: “You’re going to die. It will hurt and you’ll be alone.” After that, the mysterious girl disappears. Troubled by the message and disappearing girl Tatum not only starts a journey to learn more about the hitchhiker but to clear her name as well. The book manages to tackle some pretty serious issues without ever allowing them to weigh down the story too much. When They Fade is perfect for those who enjoyed The Lovely Bones.

 

Interference

Kay Honeyman

Kate Hamilton knows how to get what she wants. She learned it from her father, who is a Congressman in Washington DC. She doesn’t expect things to change for her when her father announces a move to Texas to run a special election. Unfortunately, her old tricks don’t seem to work, and her father’s campaign gets runs into difficulties. Even still, with some spunk, hard work and some smarts, Kate has what it takes to turn the situation around and hopefully get on the good side of star quarterback Hunter Price. Interference offers a little bit of everything from romance to football to scandals.

 

Like a River Glorious

Rae Carson

A sequel to the much acclaimed Walk on Earth a Stranger, Like a River Glorious follows Lee Westfall as she finally reaches her home in California. They embrace her magical powers and even welcome others with the same gifts. However, her uncle hasn’t given up his quest to control Lee and her powers. He manages to kidnap her, but she’s not the same as she was before. Her powers have grown. Gold no longer just speaks to her; it also listens to her commands. The question now is if it is enough to stop her uncle once and for all. It’s a sweeping saga of magic and history as well as a coming-of-age story.
