Books for the season | Autumn reads
I grew up around books. Any trip we went on, my dad always had a book with him; I specifically remember him carrying books in his beach bag and we'd both sit and read on the sand. I think we loved reading at the beach more than jumping and swimming in the waves! My home growing up was filled with stacks of books and anytime we went out, I always had to stop at a bookstore, whether it was Borders (anyone remember Borders?) or a little independent shop.
As I've gotten older, I have had trouble finding time to read, but I've been trying to make more time to read more recently. I find that I am more of a seasonal reader and love to pick books that correspond with the season. I have a few to share with you that I love reading in the fall - some I re-read only during that particular season.
I love escaping to another world and being able to follow the journeys of each character. Below are some of my favorite (and current) books for the autumn season.
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling is always the perfect choice for autumn/winter. I love how the books encompass every season, but autumn and the cooler months have always stuck out to me in these books.
I'm currently reading The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware - I wanted to read something a little more mystery/on-edge and this has definitely been that so far. It is an interesting read so far!
I always loved the autumnal descriptions and almost poetic feel to One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. The book always reflects God in so many ways and I love reading it every fall.
The Weight of Silence by Heather Gundenkauf is another mystery/thriller book that I enjoy reading in the fall season.
Squashed by Joan Bauer is a fun book for autumn. The story is set around the season and is a very enjoyable, quick read.
The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger is a late fall/early winter read that is one of my very favorites. The characters shift throughout as well as time - a very interesting, mysterious, and lovely read.
