Autumn is now in full swing and over the last couple of weeks or so, I’ve seen a few Autumn TBRs floating around the blogosphere. Now, we know by now on here that I am not really a TBR person. I have to let my mood dictate what I read. However, at this time of year, I do tend to gravitate towards mysteries, the supernatural, nitty-gritty storylines and books that possess a gothic-like atmosphere, and I have quite a few of them on my shelves.
Not wanting to narrow them down, there are twelve books I want to highlight and share so let’s dive in.
Note – I’ll leave links to the Goodreads pages for the summaries so I’m not making this post longer than it needs to be.
The Wren Hunt by Mary Watson – YA | thriller | mythology | romance
The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox – Adult | historical fiction | witchcraft
The Darker Arts by Oscar de Muriel – Adult | historical fiction | crime | mystery
The Wicked Deep by Shea Earnshaw – YA | witches | mystery | paranormal
A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan – Adult | historical fiction | witchcraft | magical realism
The Binding by Bridget Collins – Adult | historical fiction | books about books |
Wakenhyrst by Michelle Paver – Adult | historical fiction | thriller | paranormal | gothic
The Mercies by Kiran Millwood Hargrave – Adult | historical fiction | witches | LGBT
The Corset by Laura Purcell – Adult | historical fiction | mystery | thriller | gothic
Cunning Women by Elizabeth Lee – Adult | historical fiction | witchcraft | romance
The Deathless Girls by Kiran Millwood Hargrave – YA | retelling | paranormal | horror
Mrs England by Stacey Halls – Adult | historical fiction | gothic | mystery
I think we’ll see which ones I pick up and prioritise as the season progresses but at the moment I do feel tempted by Wakenhyrst, Cunning Women or Mrs England. Like I said, we’ll see.
Do you read seasonally? If so, what books do you think you might read during Autumn?
As always, thanks for reading and have a brazzle dazzle day!
