As a mood reader, I find it so difficult to read certain types of books during the Autumn months. But there are ones that I’ve read in the past which I thought were perfect to read at this time of the year – even if I didn’t initially.
Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm. Each week there’s a new and exciting bookish topic to discuss. If you want to check out Shanah’s blog, and her post, click here!
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
This series has always given be Autumn vibes but I think part of that is due to it being set in Victorian London. There’s just something about that era that reminds me so much of Autumn – maybe it’s foggy London and the weather? It’s also a mystery which I always try to read more of at this time of year.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
Ghost stories are always books that everyone reaches for, especially in October. I managed to read this during Halloween last year and I’m so glad that I did. Part of it is set in Edinburgh, which is one of my all time favourite cities. It’s made me want to do ghost tours around the city next time I visit.
The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw
The atmosphere of this book is what really sets it apart. It’s one of the main things that I adored about it and it’s one that I’ll always recommend for Autumn.
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
Maybe it’s because I’m re-reading the series right now that I added it to the list. I always get the urge to re-read these books every year; they’re just so familiar and comforting.
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
If I could read these books for the first time again, I’d choose to read them right now. The writing, characters, and atmosphere of these books are perfect. Queen of Nothing comes out very soon as well and I can’t wait!!!
