Autumn is the perfect time to pick up a book and read. Let's be honest, it will probably be raining outside (at least in the U.K.), the weather is getting colder and cups of tea has never been more needed! Here’s a short list of some books that are absolutely perfect for Autumn!

Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury 

It would be a crime to not include Ray Bradbury on this list, who is pretty much the autumn king in my mind. Described as dark and poetic, Something Wicked This Way Comes is about a carnival that arrives in the dead of night around Halloween, but it’s always about so much more than that! Definitely one that you should read if you haven’t already!

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

This book is just downright weird. If you’re looking for something a little ‘peculiar’ this season, then this is the book for you. It’s about monsters and children with rather unusual gifts. It was recently made into a film, but for me the book is always so much better!

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

I remember reading this book when I was a teenager and the writing being so vivid that I had nightmares after finishing it. The Forest of Hands and Teeth is a book set in a dystopian future, where the world has become overrun with zombies.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood 

With The Testaments being a new release, it’s the perfect time to pick it up. The Handmaid’s Tale was made into a brilliant series, and Atwood expands on her version of Gilead with a sequel featuring different narratives, some of which you may be familiar with…

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney

If you’re looking for a book that is super easy to read, one that you could spend hours with wrapped up in a blanket, then this is the book for you. I couldn’t put this book down. It’s nothing fancy or scary, just about normal people (haha) living normal lives, but you will very quickly become invested into these characters and unable to pull yourself away.
