Fall is coming. Over the next few weeks, the temperature will tamper off, coats will come out of their summer hibernation, and pumpkin spice will be infused into every food, drink, and household product imaginable. While I’m desperately clinging to the final days of summer, I know many people are looking forward to the changing of the seasons. So today I decided to write a fall-centric post. Sort of.
I’ve compiled a booklist for this upcoming season. I don’t about you, but my favorite thing about fall is cozy, late-night reading. Here are some titles that I’ve enjoyed. Hopefully you’ll find one that peaks your interest.
Autumn Booklist 2016:
“Speak” by Laurie Halse Anderson
Plot Summary: After calling the police on a summer party, freshman Melinda Sordino is labeled an outcast at her high school. She quickly withdraws from the rest of the student body, rarely speaking and never socializing. As the year goes by, Melinda comes to terms with her newfound muteness, and the real reason she ratted out the end-of-summer party.
“Hush Hush” by Becca Fitzpatrick
Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Young Adult
Similar to: “Twilight” by Stephanie Meyer. While this genre isn’t exactly my cup of teas, I always recommend this series to fans of “Twilight” or supernatural romance.
Plot Summary: High school sophomore Nora Grey leads an ordinary life; however, everything changes when she meets Patch, a fallen angel.
Rating: 3/5 (Obviously this is based on my personal tastes. If it sounds interesting to you, I strongly suggest you check it out).
“Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children” by Ransom Riggs (*winks mischievously*) I have a book review up for this, so you should check it out.
Genre: Dark Fantasy, Horror Fiction (Wikipedia’s words, not mine. It has some gothic elements, but I wouldn’t call it horror)
Similar to: “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket. But without a creepy Count Olaf who emotionally scars your childhood (sorry, Jim Carrey).
Plot Summary: Check out my full book review for the plot summary!
“Rules For 50/50 Chances” by Kate McGovern
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Similar to: “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green
Plot Summary: After her mother is diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease, a genetically-linked terminal illness, high school senior Rose Levenson has the option to take a test that will tell her if she will develop the disease as well. Rose must decide which is worse: knowing or not knowing.
Thank you for reading. If you have any autumn book suggestions of your own, let me know. I would love to hear them.
