Happy First Day of Fall!
Just FYI this post is going to be 100% cliche basic white girl. I apologize but only slightly, now to proceed with an onslaught of cliches.
1. “Ah Fall, my time to shine.”
2.”I am a total autumn person and I love this time of year.”
3.”I love feeling cozy and fall is a perfect and preferred time, where I live it’s not too cold so I get to snuggle with lots of cozy blankets and sweaters, drink massive amounts of tea and coffee, and read all the books!”
4.”It is my ideal reading season because it’s usually pouring down rain and who wants to go outside in the rain? Not me.”
As I was typing this up all I could think about was The Office and Phyllis with her rainy day cliches and now I can’t take this post seriously.
With fall on my horizon, I’ve been looking for some mystery novels to enjoy with the foggy atmosphere that I know is coming.
I feel like fall and winter is ideal for fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction books. They just invoke feelings of cozy for me and the book atmosphere is just enhanced by the weather outside.
5. “I can’t wait for the season of blankets, baking, sweaters, candles, and warm beverages.”
Here’s my tbr and I would love any recommendations in fantasy and historical fiction. Right now I just can’t seem to get enough.
One of Us is Lying
by Karen M McManus
Two Can Keep a Secret
by Karen M McManus
These two books seemed like quintessential mystery reads for this year, I’ve been seeing a lot of hype and I’m curious to see what I think about them.
A Study in Scarlett Women
by Sherry Thomas
I love that cover, as I was searching through Amazon for mystery novels this kept showing up in my recommendations and after reading the description I knew I had to get it.
by Maureen Johnson
This has been on my TBR for a while but I decided to hold off on it until the fall and to be a little bit closer to the release date of book 3.
The Seven and a Half Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
by Stuart Turton
I’ve been seeing a lot of talk about this everywhere on my Twitter page and its piqued my curiosity and since I’m in the mood for mysterys I had to get it.
In the Woods
by Tana French
I first saw this on Emmmabooks’ channel on Youtube and then it was part of a Barnes and Noble “Buy Two Get One Free” promotion so I picked it up. The Dublin setting is calling my name and I’m hoping for lots of creepy forest atmosphere.
The Complete Sherlock Holmes
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
I cant set a Fall TBR full of mystery books and not include my beloved Sherlock Holmes. Since this book is 1096 pages, I plan to approach it with the same method I used to read It, I divided the book up into sections and read a small number of pages every day.
by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve been a fan of Leigh Bardugo’s books for years, I believe that I have read all of her books and I am beyond excited to read this adult novel. This book has nothing to do with the Grishaverse, it sounds dark, twisted, and intense.
The Sinister Mystery of the Mesmerizing Girl
by Theodora Goss
I don’t want this trilogy to end! This is the concluding novel to the Athena Club trilogy, I devoured The Strange Case of the Alchemists Daughter and European Travel for the Monsterous Gentlewoman earlier this year, I love both of those books and they’re already on my favorites for this year. I cant wait to see how everything wraps up.
by Marissa Meyer
I still have not read this but Marissa Meyer is doing a book signing in my state this November, so a friend and I are tentatively planning on attending and being able to meet for the first time at her Supernova signing. Now would be the perfect time to binge-read Renegades and Archenemies.
Alright, now I’m off to go stock up on tea and anything pumpkin spice related.
What’s on your TBR for this season?
