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.

This is the story of two sisters and the enchanted woods that have been waiting for them to break a set of terrible spells.”

Snow and Rose is an endearing retelling of the Grimms’ “Snow White and Rose Red”. It focuses on the theme of family which feels like a good choice considering this is middle grade fiction.
