A Cosy Autumnal Reading List

Autumn is by far my favourite season of the year. It’s a time to be filled with blankets, hot chocolates, and our favourite books.

Reading is my all-time favourite Autumn activity. Nothing can beat reading under a blanket on a windy day.

If you’re looking to add some books to your tbr piles for Autumn, then here are a few of my recommendations.

1. If Cats Disappeared from the World by Genki Kawamura. How do you decide what makes life worth living? This book follows the story of a man who only has months left to live. He isn’t ready to die so when the devil appears and offers him a deal, he has to decide how far he will go in order to live.

2. The Haunting of Aveline Jones by Phil Hickes. A middle-grade paranormal mystery is perfect for Autumn. This book follows Aveline Jones who finds a spooky, old book that once belonged to Primrose Penberthy who mysteriously vanished. Aveline decides to investigate Primrose’s disappearance.

3. Agatha by Anne cathrine Bomann. This book is a pretty short, fast-paced read. It’s set in 1940s Paris and follows the story of a psychiatrist who is counting his days until retirement. That is until Agatha visits him and makes him reconsider everything.

My Autumn Bucket List 2020

Summer has been a pretty odd experience this year so I’m glad that it’s finally coming to an end. Although, I would say that about summer any year because I just really don’t like the heat too much.

I’ve always been a bigger fan of the colder weather so naturally I prefer Autumn and Winter over Summer. Autumn has just always warmed my heart. It makes me think of fresh starts and beautiful aesthetics.

Whenever it starts to feel a little bit cooler, I start to look forward to movie nights under a blanket with a hot chocolate and marshmallows.

But anyway, since Autumn is here and has been for about a week now, I figured I would share my 2020 Autumn bucket list with you all…

Reasons To Fall In Love With Autumn

For as long as I can remember, Autumn has been my absolute favourite season. The colors, the holidays, the changes – it’s all so magical to me.

Just like most people, I don’t look at life and be grateful for the small things. So, that is why I’m writing this post. It’s nearly Autumn and people get down about the warmer weather going so how about we all try to look at the good things about Autumn..

Orange and mustard colours are everywhere

I absolutely love the colours orange and mustard yellow. They are beautiful and warm. By filling your home with those colours, it gives off a warm and welcoming vibe. By dressing in oranges and mustards, you will look warmer and it will bring a little more colour to your face.

You can cosy up by the fire

Fireplaces are absolutely beautiful to me. You can get them in all different shapes and styles so you can fit it to match your home perfectly. There is nothing more exciting to me than grabbing a comfy chair or beanbag and sitting in front of the fire in the evenings. You could even bring a good book along.

School supplies fill store shelves

It’s been a while since I was in school, but that doesn’t stop me from loving stationery. I love notebooks, pencils, pens and novelty erasers. I love anything that I can be creative with. That is why, even though school is way in my past, I get so excited about a new school year.

Pumpkin spice smells in the air

You know that Autumn has well and truly hit once you start smelling those lovely pumpkin spice smells. The smells fill the air and pumpkin spice lattes come out. Autumn is filled with distinguishing scents and they fill my nose with happiness. 

Leaves crackling underfoot

If you love Autumn, you probably get excited by the sound of leaves crackling under your feet when you walk down the street. It’s literally one my favourite sounds ever. It’s funny because I’ve actually started to seek out the leaves. I will purposely walk where the leaves are crispier. Walking through leaves is one of the best Autumn activities there is.

I always knew that I loved Autumn but I didn’t know that I was such a huge fan until I started writing this post. Is Autumn your favourite season? What do you love most about Autumn?
