Falling for, get it? Lol, okay, okay, that was pretty bad. But following with my seasonal tradition of picking out books I want to read in the upcoming season, here’s the list I’ve narrowed down. I’m going to stick to the calendar season, which means books released between September 22nd, 2016 to December 21st, 2016.
Autumn is my favourite season for many reason, the trees change colour, pumpkin spice lattes return, there are all the best holidays (Thanksgiving and Halloween), and the fall TV preview season (not that I have much time for TV anymore), and of course I can wear sweaters, scarves and hats to my hearts content (and even some fingerless gloves, which are perfect for cosying up with some fall reads).
So, without further chattiness, here’s my list of books I’m hoping to pick up this autumn:
- Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake (September 20th, 2016)
Okay, this one falls just outside my self-imposed seasonal window, but it sounds pretty darn good to me. Three girls competing for the crown. It sounds like it’s going to bleed with drama.
2. Black Flowers, White Lies by Yvonne Ventresca (October 4th, 2016)
This is probably my favourite on the list. When I read the blurb, I got shivers. It sounds like just the kind of frightfully delightful ghost story I like reading in preparation for Halloween.
3. What Light by Jay Asher (October 11th)
Thirteen Reasons Why is one of my favourite YA books of all time. I see that others who have been lucky enough to get an advanced copy of What Light are saying this isn’t like Jay Asher’s first book. I don’t know if I need it to be, I just need the tension to be good, the characters to be strong, and the writing to be excellent. I’m definitely looking forward to reading Jay Asher’s sophomore novel.
4. The Stranger Game by Cylin Busby (October 25th, 2016)
I enjoyed reading With Malice this summer, and have since decided I need more suspense in my life. With a plot that sounds vaguely like Pretty Little Liars, I have a feeling I’m really going to want to get to the bottom of this mystery.
5. Fate of Flames (Effigies #1) Sara h Raughley (November 22nd, 2016)
I love the cover of this book so much I’ve added it to my Pinterest page of YA book covers I love (check it out here). This book sounds like an equal mix of The Selection and the Apocalypse. I hope the action is fast and the characters are strong, because come November 22nd, I plan on diving right in.
What books are you looking forward to this autumn? Anything I should add to my list?
