10 of the Novels I Hope to Enjoy this Autumn

October 20, 2019 Rissi JC 7 Comments

I know what you’re thinking after reading this title. Yes, ‘tis true I’ve already share my Fall 2019 TBR hopefuls, and rambled about them, but today I’m taking a different approach with this list. Instead of being a TBR, this is more a list of books that feel like autumnal reads, and books I hope to enjoy this autumn, or the novels that seem like perfect curl-up-on-the-couch-cozy-days reads.

15 of the Best Stories to Enjoy this Autumn

The statistical probability of me actually reading all of these (especially in light of that earlier TBR) is slim to none, but it’s still fun to put this out there, and talk all the books, right?

1: Romanov by Nadine Brandes

Like so many on this list, this one just has that seasonal atmosphere going for it. Not sure what it is, but it seems like a good winter-like read, though perhaps its Russian backdrop is an influence in my thinking. (Or maybe it’s that gorgeous color palette!) Amazon | Goodreads

2: Let It Snow (Three Holiday Romances) by John Green

Been thinking about reading this one for the last five (or more?) Christmas seasons. Now that a long rumored adaptation is finally almost here (Netflix), I think it’s time to give it a chance. Amazon | Goodreads

3: It Happened One Christmas by Christen Krumm

I mean, really, who wouldn’t be excited about a YA twist on a timeless romantic-comedy favorite, While You Were Sleeping? Amazon | Goodreads

4: Love and Other Words by Christina Lauren

Don’t know anything about this one, but after reading and not loving The Unhoneymooners, I do want to try another by Christina Lauren; this one, I’ve been told, is more bittersweet so that seems like a kind of autumnal read. Amazon | Goodreads

5: The Solid Grounds Coffee Company by Carla Laureano

These books have all been “cozy” reads so far. It’s probably the thread of food that carries through them all that inspires this. At least in part. Amazon | Goodreads

6: Murder at the Flamingo by Rachel McMillan

I mean… why haven’t I read this one?? A legit question that I have no answer to. Amazon | Goodreads

7: The Blue Castle by L.M Montgomery

Another one that begs the same question as above; plus, there’s a castle, so it “feels” like an atmospheric read, right? Amazon | Goodreads

8: The Perfect Christmas by Bell Renshaw

Ok, this one is a cheat add because I’ve already read this one. But to be fair, at the time I wrote the list up, I hadn’t yet. So, I’m leaving it just to prove to myself I can read books I have on a TBR (even one that’s more of an I’d-Really-Like-to-Read-These vs. an I-Will-Read-These). Amazon | Goodreads

9: When Tides Turn by Sarah Sundin

the novels I want to read this autumn

Even though they are set during a tumultuous era (WWII), there’s something about Sarah’s novels that evoke a “cozy” atmosphere, and it works, every time. Amazon | Goodreads

10: Fankly in Love by David Yoon

What it is about this one that makes me feel all the autumn-esque feels, I don’t know. Maybe it’s as simple as it being a YA novel, and therefore it’s likely set around the start of a school year? Amazon | Goodreads

Tell me, which books seem like autumn reads to you; do you have a must-read list of “novels I hope to enjoy this autumn”? Do you have a favorite genre or “type” of book that immediately makes you think of fall? What is on your autumn season list? Comment below with all of your thoughts, recommendations or bookish whims.

    I’ve joined a group read for Frankly in Love and I can’t wait to get to it. I’ve heard pretty amazing things about it, which makes me a little nervous since it’s so hyped, but I’m just looking forward to read it. I hope it lives up to the hype! Lol

      Ooo!! So cool. Have you started yet?? I’d certainly enjoy hearing your thoughts – but most of all, I hope you enjoy, Dini! :)

    I want to read Romanov, just not sure when that will happen! I think the Russian theme kind of makes it seem like a winter book, too!

      Same, Angela. My dilemma is the same. *high five* Glad I’m not alone in the book’s vibe. :)
