Hey everyone, and welcome to day 15 of Blogtober! I’ve had a few hiccups these past few days with getting my posts up on time, but I’ve posted them to the day they were supposed to go up so if you’re curious, go back in chronological order!
Today’s post is where I’ll be sharing my favorite autumn themed covers with you! These book won’t necessarily be books set in autumn, but covers that make me think of autumn. You’ll find that a lot of them are orange/red in color, and that’s probably because I’m associating them with colorful leaves and pumpkins.
Riders by Veronica Rossi
I picked this book up purely on impulse because of the cover and how gorgeous it is. I have yet to actually read it, but at least it’s pretty to look at 🙂
The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken
The dark blues and purple-grays remind me of a dreary fall day, with lots of wind and rain and then I think of the contents of the book, which are set around Halloween, and I put this book on the list.
Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard
The third book in Susan Dennard’s Something Strange & Deadly trilogy about the rising dead in 1800’s Pennsylvania, the orange and green of her dress makes me think of a pumpkin patch and that is why the book made the list.
Cursed by Thomas Wheeler & Frank Miller
There’s something about red and black that make me think of autumn, and I don’t know what it is but that’s why I thought this would be perfect for this list.
All The Bad Apples by Moira Fowley-Doyle
Moira Fowley-Doyle always has an awesome autumn themed cover no matter what book we’re talking about, and the fact that there is a redhead on the cover makes me feel partial to this book.
Small Spaces by Katherine Arden
The spooky scarecrow in the foreground! The pumpkin patch in the background! The dusk-esque colors! And then you get to the plot, which takes place around Halloween and has strange un-dead creatures, possibly ghosts and more!
Pumpkin Heads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks
I feel as though this one speaks for itself…
Beneath The Citadel by Destiny Soira
The aesthetic of the colors, the melting gold skull, and the columns that look like trees in the background give this a perfectly spooky vibe that I love.
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White
Fun fact: when I was 4 or 5, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to dress up as a clown or Frankenstein, so my mom helped me create an outfit that captured both. I wore a homemade Franken-head with a clown wig on top, with a clown costume on and my skin painted green with nuts and bolts and stitches.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and Siobhan Down
This cover is seriously spooky and I love it and should probably read it soon.
The Walls Around Us by Nova Ren Suma
I can’t quite put my finger on why I think this book is autumn themed, but I do so here it is.
The Women In The Walls by Amy Lukavics
The fog with the spooky house and big fields with the creepy carved blood dripping title make it impossible NOT to put this book on this list.
Spectacle by Jodie Lynn Zdrok
I think it’s the red, white and black, but every time I think of this book I think of the fall season.
The Vanishing Stair by Maureen Johnson
Read the above caption, and add the fact that these books take place at a mysterious school deep in the woods.
Here There Are Monsters by Amelinda Berube
The animal skull, the dark Forrest behind the girl, and the white all do it for me. Plus, this book was C R E E P Y. This book belongs on this list.
I know this is a shorter than normal post, and my reasoning behind why I chose each cover kinda suck, but they all have thus autumn aesthetic to me. What books make you think of the Fall season?
