SPOOKY FALL READS - BOOK RECOMMENDATION

Hello everyone!

I am here today with a slightly different post than my usual reviews. I was recently thinking that I wanted to read some fallish books. Fall is the perfect time for those heady thrillers and slipping back into a fantasy series you've been neglecting.

I've compiled a list of books that I think would be great on any fall TBR-  something a little creepier, or just something a little different from the typical summer contemporaries! Enjoy!

And The Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich

This book is so creepy. In typical Kurtagich fashion, this story is told in a mixture of 'novel text' and graphics (notes, journal entries, etc.) It took me a little bit after I finished this book to decide how I felt about it. But once you mentally digest it, you can easily see it is GENUIS. You can read more of my thoughts here.

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

This is a book for fall, a book for winter, spring, summer, any season, any time. I am constantly thinking about this book, WEEKS after finishing it. This book is so important because it deals with sexual assault and rape culture, but there is a great darkness that translate to a perfect fall read. You can read more of my thoughts here.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

A great fantasy for seasoned pros and those who (like me) are still just getting their feet wet in the world of fantasy. Bardugo crafts such an amazing world and great characters PLUS, you can read this trilogy and then jump on the Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom bandwagon (which, by the way totally deserves a bandwagon!) You can read more of my thoughts here.

We'll Never Be Apart by Emiko Jean

More along the vein of the typical creepy, psychological thriller. There's mental illness elements, specifically SEVERE post traumatic stress disorder, and the writing is just so atmospheric you feel like you are in the story alongside the characters. That TITLE just gives you a glimpse of what it is going to be like! You can read more of my thoughts here.

Hopefully one of these will tickle your fancy and you find a great new read this fall!
