This Week

Ten Book with Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover scrams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish)

October is one of my favorite months, and fall is my favorite season, and books are my favorite in general, so this is gonna be a fun one!

10 Books with Autumnal Covers

1) To Kill a Mockingbird — Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird (To Kill A Mockingbird #1)

This is my current read, same cover and all. I like the cover a lot and it just gives me a fallish feel. I don’t know why, but that dark red and light pink really make me think of fall, and with the gorgeous sky and the tree…I dunno, must I really explain?

2) Turtles All the Way Down — John Green

Turtles All the Way Down

This one comes out TOMORROW *internal screaming* and I couldn’t be happier!! That bright orange jumps out at me like the trees this season.

3) Before I Fall — Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall

The grass she’s lying in looks brownish, and that tends to make me think of fall/bordering winter. Also, “fall” is in the title, ha ha…

4) There’s Someone in Your House — Stephanie Perkins

There's Someone Inside Your House

There is no fall without Halloween, and though I haven’t yet gotten my hands on this book, the cover is gorgeous. I haven’t read Perkins (unlike many of you), so really, this is one of those “I”m gonna read it because of the pretty cover” books. It screams Halloween and, in turn, fall. And who doesn’t love a good horror/thriller in the fall?

5) Three Dark Crowns — Kendare Blake

Three Dark Crowns (Three Dark Crowns, #1)

Though this book severely let me down, I did enjoy the minimalistic cover. The crowns are beautiful and a nice contrast against the black background. This one, for me, blends the whole Halloween thing with the fall colors.

6) The Graveyard Book — Neil Gaiman

The Graveyard Book

Graveyards are synonymous with Halloween. Plus, I’ve read (and cherished) this book and the entire thing gives me a fall/Halloween feel. One of my favorite books and writers! Not a big fan of this cover, but I do get a fallish vibe.

7) Speak — Laurie Halse Anderson


This one speaks (ha) for itself — the haunting eyes behind a tree with brown leaves has autumn written all over it. Not a big fan of the book itself, but the cover is pretty.

8) The Weight of Feathers — Anna-Marie McLemore

The Weight of Feathers

Still haven’t gotten around to reading this, but I really want to! The cover initially drew me in and truly makes me think of fall. The barren tree branches, the feathers falling like leaves, the colors — ugh, I love it.

9) November 9 — Colleen Hoover

November 9

I think I’m the last person alive who still hasn’t read a Colleen Hoover novel yet. I want to change that, I do!! The title (obviously) reminds me of fall, but so do the colors and the pieces of paper (??) falling like leaves. So pretty.

10) The Big Crunch — Pete Hautman

The Big Crunch

So this one has all four seasons on it, but fall stands out the most to me. It’s the first square and is the same color as the text. It’s also my favorite of the four seasons. I like this novel a lot and had to include it in a post about seasons because it’s all about the seasons!

      1. I keep buying them thinking “yup this is gonna be it, I’ll read and love this one and I’ll read the others I have” and yeah, no. Hasn’t happened. I just checked and I literally do have five. I think I have 1 in ebook form too. I need to get it together lol.


      2. I know those feels, I do that too lol. I don’t have any on my shelf so at least you’re a step ahead of me! You just need to give in and read one!


    1. I really wanted to like TDC! I ended up only like the last quarter of it. I hope you enjoy it more than I did 🙂
