I’d like to start by apologising to all our readers in the Southern Hemisphere!
Now we have that out of the way. Autumn/Fall is upon us, the leaves are turning red and gold and the weather has taken a big downturn. It’s time to pick up your blanket under the tree and take it inside for the winter and find yourself a new reading spot! And it’s time for us to bring you more recommended reads!
Today we’re recommending ten atmospheric reads, all set in the Autumn time, or embodying the spirit of Autumn, to get you in the mood for the most beautiful season of the year! We hope you enjoy our recommendations, feel free to add your own in the comments.
The Secret History – Donna Tartt
For obvious reasons, campus novels always make me think of Autumn and The Secret History is the perfect atmospheric read for this time of year. The novel follows a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college who discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries.
The Death of Mrs Westaway – Ruth Ware
With Halloween looming, October has always been a spooky month and if you’re looking to see in Autumn with a dark and atmospheric read, we highly recommend The Death of Mrs Westway, offering mystery, suspense, and the rest!
