Themed Recommendations: Halloween (pt. 2)

Although the beginning of autumn is officially defined by a calendar date, it takes a specific event for it to start “feeling like autumn”. To some it’s the first leaves falling, to others it’s switching out the summer jacket for your winter coat. To me, it’s always been the first day I have to put the heater in my house on. It’s that dry warmth, the clicking of pipes and the inevitable slight smell of burned dust that accompanies that moment that rings in autumn-time for me. This week, that moment has come. So here I am, sitting in front of my humming heater, looking at a mixture of golden and green leaves outside, ready to bring you my autumn reading recommendations. I was inspired by Kayla from BooksAndLala, specifically her Overly Specifically Book Recommendations, asl well as the prompts she used in her own Fall Recommendations video. So instead of just giving you a list of books that I think work great for the season, I’m giving you 11 themed recommendations. Some prompts you may recognise from Kayla’s video, some of them are completely new. PS: if you miss feel like this list is a little light on the spooky recommendations, don’t worry: I have a part two (Spooky edition) to this list coming up a little closer to Halloween.
