Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books That Give Me Autumn Vibes

Today I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl which is all about lists.  Since lists are one of my favorite things this is one of my favorite linkups!  Today's topic is all about books that give me autumn vibes.  I can't say why some of these give me autumn vibes but these are the ones that jumped out at me when I was scrolling down my "Read" list on Goodreads.

1.  The Four Story Mistake by Elizabeth Enright - This is the first book that jumped out at me.  It takes place over the span of a year or so so it's not exactly the most fallish book I've ever read but maybe it's the talk of starting school but this book just screams fall.

2.  The Last Seance: Tales of the Supernatural by Agatha Christie - The cover has a lot of orange it but there's also some very Halloween-y stories in this particular collection.

3.  Slay in Character by Lynn Cahoon - I can't remember if this book takes place in fall or not but I do remember they make a lot of soup and soup = fall in my head.

4.  Watching You by Lisa Jewell - I'm not sure why this one came to mind when I was looking for autumn-y books.  Maybe it's just the general atmosphere but it just seems like that time right before winter at the end of autumn when the colors are fading and everything is just kind of dark and rainy.

5.  Honey Baked Homicide by Gayle Leeson - There is so much food in this one and the characters spend a lot of time outdoors.  It's got a very brisk fall afternoon vibe to it.

6.  Death Overdue by Allison Brook - Well clearly it takes place during Halloween season and it's a haunted library which is just the most fall-ish thing I've ever heard of.

7.  Bitter Feast by Deborah Crombie - The cover has a lot of yellows and oranges so maybe that's it?

8.  A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas - Another one that made me think of fall for unknown reasons.  Regardless of why it definitely should be read.

9.  Caught Bread Handed by Ellie Alexander - Soup is simmering, bread is baking and coffee is brewing.  And this one has a bit of orange on the cover so it is just fall all over.

10.  Life Among the Savages by Shirley Jackson - There's talk of school starting and buying coats and that sort of thing.

What books give you fall vibes? 


  1. Ooh Watching You is a good one- that does give off a fall vibe as I recall. And I almost went all cozy covers for this one since I figured there's be a ton of good ones- and yes soup = fall!!

  2. I still want to read The Four Story Mistake! 👍✨

  3. Pumpkins are always a good Autumn choice!

  4. Is there a cozy series that is all holiday themed?
