There really is nothing like a crisp fall afternoon. You are curled up by the window in your favourite, snuggly blanket and reading the best book. Heaven…right?!? I mean the one thing to make it even better is if Beau snuggles up with me. However, he usually only does that when he wants me to throw his ball or give him extra treats! I thought it would be an actual crime if I kept my very own fall reading list all to myself! So, to my fellow bookworms and fall lovers, here is my reading list for this season. If you are a book lover, these autumn reads are for you.
Fall Reading List Suggestions
I tried to refrain from adding any Christmas/Winter books just yet because that will need its own blog, as well. And I can’t be like stores and just say it’s the holidays quite yet! I hope you all enjoy these fall reading list picks. If you loved them, let me know so we can have our very own little virtual book club!
The Year of The Witching by Alexis Henderson
There is nothing better than a little dark magic, feminism, and rebelling against the norm like you will find in The Year of the Witching by Alexis Henderson!

That changes for Immanuelle the moment she enters into the forbidden woods around her town that bestow power and knowledge to this restless soul.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Appearing and leaving without notice with spellbinding performances, you are going to want to run away with the circus after the first chapter in The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. As two taboo lovers, who are both magicians, cross paths and play their luck in a risky game of love, their story will bring about questions and the yearning for adventure.
Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin
The Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin is only book one of the series so if you love this story, you still have a few to go! This book also contains more magic, romance, witchcraft, and forbidden love that will captivate you until the morning light.
The Lady Sherlock Series by Sherry Thomas
If you have 5 books to go through this fall, they should all be The Lady Sherlock series by Sherry Thomas.

Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
I am dropping lots of first books of a series so that you can stay in the spooky season as long as you would like! The Truly Devious series also has four books for you to read even if October is long over.

The Accident Season by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Every October might be a spooky season for us, but for Cara’s family, it can be deadly.

Till death do us part, or maybe not. As Rebecca falls madly and quickly in love with a widower, she moves into his estate and realizes that his late wife isn’t going anywhere, any time soon.
