My Favorite Fall Books

Thursday, September 21, 2017

One of my favorite things to do any chance I get a few minutes of free time is get lost in a great book. I thought it would be fun to compile a list of some of my favorite fall reads that I thought others might enjoy if you're searching for a read that will put you in the mood for colorful, crisp leaves, cooler foggy mornings, apple and pumpkin flavored everything and maybe a little something magical.  All the books are linked below the photos via Amazon affiliate links.

Honestly, I have loved everything I have read by Sarah Addison Allen. She has a way of making everyday occurrences into something magical and other-worldly, but my favorite of hers was the very first book of hers I picked up, Garden Spells.

When I was younger, Practical Magic was absolutely my favorite movie. I would opt to stay in on a Friday night so that I could re-watch the movie when the mood struck me. I don't know what took me so long to pick up the book because I knew it was based on a novel, but once I finally did get the book, I finished it in one weekend. Alice Hoffman just has a way with words and I loved that the plot line of this revolved around two sisters and their bad luck in love.

I haven't read this one yet obviously, because it doesn't even release until next week, but it's the pre-quel to Practical Magic, so I have it on my list to pick up the day it comes out and I can't wait. I have about five books currently waiting to be read, but this one is going to line jump to the front. If it's anywhere near as good as the first book, it'll be amazing. 

This book was just a quick, fun read. Not too heavy but has just a touch of supernatural and I'd recommend it. There are some fun twists and turns in the plot and it's an overall enjoyable read. 

I feel like Nora Roberts books are basically the Hallmark channel movies of the literary world. Kinda cheesy, sometimes a little trashy, but I just can't quit them. They're easy reads and this is actually a trilogy of books that I read a few years ago and really liked. They're based in Ireland, which I've always felt held a mystique anyway, but these books focus a lot of folklore and magic.

It's been awhile since I read this one, so I don't remember a lot about it, but I do remember that I really enjoyed it, so I wanted to add it to the list as well since it fits the theme of magical fall mood reads. 

Are there any "fallish" reads that y'all can recommend for me that I didn't mention? E-mail me or comment because I'm on the hunt for some fun new fall reads.
