There’s nothing more cozy than curling up on the couch with your favorite blanket, turning on the twinkle lights, sipping something warm, and reading an imagination-filled book during Fall. I say this because I think the Halloween to Christmas season really brings out our imagination and that calls for a particularly festive Autumn reading list. Below are four festive books I think you should read this Fall.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Trilogy
This is probably an obvious suggestion of mine since it was just in my September favorites. But, it’s equal parts magical and mysterious which I think makes for the perfect Fall read. I love reading books during this time of year that push my imagination to places I had never considered before and this Miss Peregrine’s did just that.
The Night Circus
Similar to Miss Peregrine’s, this book too pushed my imagination beyond anything I could have dreamt up. It’s about a traveling circus that mysteriously appears one day. There were no signs of it coming and the doors only open at night. Along with this magical circus, there’s a developing story of two illusionists who are being trained to battle one another, but they aren’t aware who their opponent is, where or when the battle will commence, and what they are training to do. The story magically unfolds in a way so beautiful I can’t even describe it. The Night Circus continues to be one of my all-time favorites and it’s one you should consider adding to your Autumn reading list.
Any book in the HP series really speaks for itself doesn’t it? Whether we watch the movies or read one of the magical books, Harry is a staple in our home during the cozy season.
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
This one is actually on my Autumn reading list because I have yet to read it! You can read the full description of this book here, but it’s another book about battling magicians mixed with some historical fiction, so I’m all in. Any book that reinforces the possibility of hidden magic in an otherwise normal world is a book I need in my life.
What’s on your reading list during this cozy Fall season? Is there anything else I should add to mine? I’m currently halfway through book 2 in the Miss Peregrine trilogy!
