Hey y’all! IT’S FALL (although you can’t tell from the weather here in Boston, it’s been hot and humid beyond belief)! I’m a summer girl without a doubt—I love the warm weather and just want to wear dresses and skirts all year round—but, there are parts about fall that I can’t resist, especially here in New England. Western Mass, my true home, is absolutely beautiful in the fall with all of the foliage and farm land, and I always make an effort to go back and pick apples and pumpkins and eat tons of cider doughnuts.
I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of posts like this already, but I just wanted to put my two cents in, and show ya’ll what I want to read this fall, specifically books I feel like are going to be ‘fall’ books, if that makes sense. Let me know what’s on your TBR for the season!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
These books are so beloved; they even made a movie (which I’ve yet to see). I can’t believe I haven’t read them yet, but they’re on my list—I even have the whole series on my shelf. I feel like it’s the cover that’s throwing me off and keeping me from starting, because it just looks so creepy and I don’t usually do creepy, but I mean October’s the time to do that right?
Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson
I don’t know a ton about this story, I believe it’s somewhat historical fiction and takes place during the gold rush, but it just looks like fall to me with the cover full of rich browns, yellows, and oranges.
Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman
This is another historical fiction I guess? It’s a western. Maybe there’s just something about historical fictions or fall for me, or like orange and yellow covers? This has been sitting on my shelf for over a year and I’m ready to read it, it also helps that the sequel just came out or is coming out or something like that.
Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
Okay there’s nothing that outwardly screams fall about this to me, but I recently hauled it from Book Outlet and am super interested in starting it. But also like crimson makes me think of blood and like Halloween and all that. There’s also dark magic I guess? I don’t know a lot about this story but am definitely drawn to it for some reason.
The Magnolia Story by Chip and Joanna Gaines
I LOVE FIXER UPPER AND THE GAINES’. I’m devastated that they’re ending the show after the fifth season. Anyway, gonna get my fill by reading this lovely book about his lovely couple and their journey and family. Plus, Joanna’s designs always scream cozy country fall to me.
