Goodbye (and honestly good riddance) to summer because it’s finally TIME FOR THE GREATEST OF ALL SEASONS. Fall is coming up very quickly and I’m more than ready for it. It’s my favorite time of year (next to Winter) for so many reasons, but mainly because of the cooler weather. I’m so DONE with the hot days, guys. I want sweaters and fuzzy socks and the leaves to change and AHHH I’m excited!!
I don’t normally do Top Ten Tuesday (I think this is actually my first one?) but I couldn’t resist the prompt today. Because it involves books to read IN the Fall, which is honestly the best combination I can think of.
I have lots of books planned for the next few months, but for this list, I’ve tried to pick out the ones that kinda radiate those Fall and Halloween vibes. Like the spooky/mysterious/thrilling kind. Some of these I’ve literally been saving just so I can read them during this time of year… like, that is how dedicated I am to this season.
Here’s some of those Fall-esque books I am planning to pick up soon:
Vengeful by V.E. Schwab
I NEEEEED THIS. The other night, I finished Vicious and lemme just tell you: THAT was a spectacular book. Very dark and twisted and totally unique. Of course, I expected nothing less from Schwab, but I was still totally blown away by how good it was. So now I’ve been anxiously waiting for this sequel which comes out ONE! WEEK! FROM! TODAY!
Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
After I’m done with Vengeful, I’m going to read this, and I couldn’t be more excited. I actually started it a couple weeks ago; I’m about 30 pages in and I’m loving it. And seriously Lazlo is great because he’s in to books, like same dude. I’m going to attempt to finish this before the sequel comes out on October 2nd, and I’m hoping it’ll be bingeable considering I’ll have less than week and it’s a monster of a book. Either way, SO EXCITED.
City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab
This is one of those I’m saving for October just because of the spooky theme. I’m reallllly looking forward to this one because 1. I haven’t read middle grade in ages, 2. I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews, and 3 … it’s SCHWAB.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
It’s about time, am I right? I’ve been missing out on Bardugo books for years now and I’ve suddenly gotten the urge to read them. And I am MORE than excited. I’ve been told that it’s best to read the Grisha trilogy first, but then I’ll get to what everyone seems to rave about even more, which is…
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
YES FINALLY. I’m expecting I’ll finish Grisha and immediately pick this one up. All the hype for this duology has been CRAZY high and its making me want to read it so badly. Someone actually gave me SoC as a gift years ago (I think when it came out in 2015?) and I can’t believe I NEVER PICKED IT UP. I’m planning on it though. Very, very soon. The excitement is real!!
Scythe by Neal Shusterman
Yet another hyped series I’ve been missing out on, and one that I am very much wanting to get to already. Honestly, I don’t know how much I’m expecting to like this. I think I’ll enjoy it, but it’s not pulling me in as much as some other books I have on my TBR. Everyone’s love for this has made me intrigued though, that’s for sure. And I did order it recently so I’m planning to try this (and Thunderhead if I enjoy it) within the next few months!
This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
Ever since my reread of The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, I’ve been desperate to get my hands on another Mackenzi Lee book. I absolutely L O V E her and her writing and the way she incorporates all the cool historical aspects. This book seems like a fitting read for October, so hopefully I’ll pick be able to pick it up sometime next month!
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
I included The Raven Cycle in my last post about series I still need to finish, and now I’ve been inspired to pick up The Raven King. I’ve been meaning to read this book for two years now, and I feel like I’ll finally manage to get through it in the next few months. I hope?? Ugh I adore this series so very much. I miss Gansey and Blue and Adam and Ronan and Noah. I need them back in my life.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
Well this definitely looks dark and it definitely looks like something I’m going to be in to. Again, I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about this book (and the sequel) so I’m verrrry interested to see what all the hype is about.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab
Oh look, another Schwab book. *pretends to be shocked* I’m just really in to her books lately, okay? I hear this one involves monsters and such, which is great. Honestly everything about this book sounds incredible, and since it’s Schwab, I know it definitely will be incredible.
I’d love to know:
Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Do you enjoy Fall as much as I do? What books do you have on your Fall TBR?
