Five Perfect Autumn Reads/Blogtober Day 8

Autumn is the perfect time to settle down in comfy blankets, grab a cup of coffee/tea, and read a good book! While every season is a wonderful time to read, Autumn just brings on breezy, comfy vibes!

Here are my five perfect reads for Autumn:

Nightbird by Alice Hoffman
This was such a fun story that involves a family with a deep secret, and the great lengths taken in order to break a curse. This story has a great blend of supernatural magic, friendship and love.

Wish by Barbara O’Connor
Wish follows the life of Charlie, a young girl (reluctantly) relocated to a small town in North Carolina, to be raised by her aunt and uncle. Through her experiences in her new home (and an adorable pet), Charlie learns the real lessons of community, family, and unyielding devotion.

‘The Magicians’ by Lev Grossman
‘The Magicians’ is a tale of urban fantasy, following Quentin and his friends as they attend Brakebills, a magical college in New York. It evokes Harry Potter, set within the Adult genre. I’ve yet to watch the series, yet read the first two books, and they’re excellent stories!

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I recently picked up a copy of ‘A Discovery of Witches’, and I can’t wait to read it this month. Drama among witches within a library backdrop carries such a lovely, Autumn vibe!

‘Guilty Pleasures’ by Laurell K. Hamilton
‘Guilty Pleasures’ is the first novel that follows the paranormal adventures of Anita Blake, a necromancer and vampire hunter in St. Louis. This series has heated up in a big way with regards to Anita’s ‘activities’ with the paranormal community, but in this story, we follow Anita as she goes about unlocking the mystery of who is killing vampires in the area, and why.
