This week’s Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is another fun one: Ten Books with Fall Covers/Themes. Since I am obsessed with all things Halloween at the moment, all I can say in response to this week’s theme is YAY.
Don’t worry, there is nothing pertaining to pumpkin spice anything on this list.
Top Ten Books with Fall Covers/Themes
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman – Cemeteries are one of my favorite places to visit this time of year.
To Kill a Mockingburd by Harper Lee – I confess that I dislike this book, but the cover of this particular version feels very Fall-y to me with with colors and the tree.
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackon – Creepy family and a black cat. Perfect for a Halloween read!
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling – The colors on this one reminds me of the leaves changing from green to orange to brown. (Obviously, the themes of the series itself are perfectly suited for Fall reading.)
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving – I feel like this one is pretty self-explanatory.
The Books of Elsewhere series by Jaqueline West – The series is an appropriate one as most of it takes place during Fall and around Halloween. Pus, magic, talking cats, witches, people trapped in paintings…
The Cresswell Plot by Eliza Wass – I actually know nothing about this book, but I’ve seen it pop up on the blogosphere and the cover is appropriate.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs – I love the creepy covers on these books.
Dracula by Bram Stoker – There’s no such thing as October without vampires.
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield – This one is a cozy, gothic-mystery to curl up with in the evenings.
