Nothing makes my bibliophilic heart smile more than the drop in temperature. The leaves fall, the cozy cable knit sweaters come out, the autumnal candles get lit after months of sitting and waiting for the air to turn cold. Life turns into an autumn-themed Pinterest board (at least I wish it did) as the chill forces us to stay inside and cuddle up with our favorite literary friends. What could be better?
It may still be warm in North Carolina, but what’s life without a little imagination? This fall, I’ve got quite a few books to tackle and I’m totally ready for it. Here’s what I’m planning on reading:
They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // Adam Silvera
Something about fall makes me want to read tearjerkers like this book. They Both Die at the End is a book about Rufus and Mateo, who learn from an organization called DeathCast that they are going to die. Today. Have you started crying yet? Good thing I’ve got plenty of fuzzy blankets to snuggle and mop up tears while reading.
Cruel Crown by Victoria Aveyard
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // Victoria Aveyard
This novella bind-up features two prequels to Red Queen that I can’t wait to finally read! The first two books in the series were fantastic (you can read my Red Queen review here and my Glass Sword review here) and I’m sure these novellas will shed a new kind of light on the literary world I already love.
Sublime Karma by Peyton Garver
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // Peyton Garver
This young adult contemporary romance sounds perfect for a snuggly Saturday, a warm blanket, and some fuzzy socks. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review and can’t wait to read how protagonist Brie’s story unfolds.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // Kami Garcia // Margaret Stohl
Nothing like a good paranormal romance to make it feel like fall! Beautiful Creatures is about Ethan Wate, a boy stuck in his South Carolina hometown and itching to get anywhere else. And then comes Lena Duchannes, the mysterious girl with an even more mysterious past. This will be a reread and I can’t wait to get started!
Emma by Jane Austen
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks
I purchased a copy of this Jane Austen classic when I was visiting New York in August, so this book in particular has a special place on my TBR. For someone who loves to read, I haven’t found many classics that I loved and am hoping this book will be the one!
Turtles All the Way Down by John Green
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // John Green
If you need me after October 10th, I’ll be fangirling over John Green’s newest release. I normally wait until release day to purchase a new book, but I preordered a signed copy of this book and am anxiously waiting its release. The story of Aza, a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder, sounds like the perfect autumn tale to tug on the heartstrings.
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Amazon // Goodreads // ThriftBooks // Stephenie Meyer
Ah yes, we’ll also be revisiting my middle school obsession this season. I haven’t read Twilight since my vampire craze in seventh grade and am looking forward to rereading a book that meant so much to me once upon a time.
