it’s tuesday and i am again participating in the “top ten tuesday”, which is a weekly challenge hosted by the broke and the bookish. this weeks topic is:
Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover screams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish)
i was thinking about that theme and honestly, i do not associate any books with fall. since i am a mood reader i can basically read anything at any time of the year. yes, of course, there are horrors/thrillers that can be read around halloween, because it fits, but i do not read that many horrors, so for me that’s out of the question. so you might think, what is she going with then? ha, i have the answer. since fall means colors for me, especially orange, red, yellow, i am going with books, that have these colors on the cover. pretty simple i know, but it totally works for me, ha! 😀 so please enjoy my list!
“ten books with fall covers”
1.) “illuminae” by amie kaufman & jay kristoff
i mean, just look at that! red, orange, awesome!! this cover screems fall for me, when i think about all the leaves outside right now. i really enjoyed this book, especially the format and the cover is just amazing. i can’t wait for “obsidio” to come out, because i want to continue reading this series.
2.) “the martian” by andy weir
of course “the martian” by andy weir needed to be on this list. why? look at it! the cover is awesome and although it takes place on mars, it reminds me of fall.
3.) “one flew over the cuckoo’s nest” by ken kesey
it’s basically the edition’s fault, that this book lands on this list, because it’s bright orange. i love these penguin classics editions. there aren’t many books published in that edition, but i want them all. 😀 just look at it!
4.) “great expectations” by charles dickens
this edition of “great expectations” by charles dickens basically screams fall. not just because of the colors, but there are trees and leaves on it and i love it!! also the content. this was my first long novel by dickens and i loved it! it’s an amazing story, great characters and great writing. i am looking forward to my dickens project next year! 🙂
5.) “the perks of being a wallflower” by stephen chbosky
i don’t remember if i have read this book in fall back then. but i think it’s a perfect fall book. it’s a book for reading on a cold day, curled up in a blanket with a hot choclate or tea. i loved this book back then and i think it fits very well with the theme.
6.) “firefight” by brandon sanderson
i have read the reckoners series at the beginning of this year! i loved “steelheart” so much, that i needed to continue with “firefight” and “calamity”. it’s a really cool series, that’s a lot of fun, has great characters and a cool story. i really enjoyed it and i am sad, that not many people in the book world are talking about it. go get it guys, it’s fun! it’s also going to have a special place in my heart forever, because my copy of “steelheart” was signed by brandon sanderson. 🙂
7.) “simon vs. the homo sapiens agenda” by becky albertalli
i looooooove “simon vs. the homo sapiens” agenda by becky albertalli! ❤ it is such a great story and i laughed and cried so much. it was an emotional rollercoaster and so much fun! and the cover fits perfectly into this list!
8.) “dark matter” by blake crouch
this book needs to be on this list because of two reasons. first, the color. yes, “dark matter” by blake crouch has an awesome cover and it fits totally with my view of fall. but it also fits, because it’s a mystery. and as i said before, mysteries or thrillers are good for halloween. this book is suspenseful and will blow your mind!!
9.) “to kill a mockingbird” by harper lee
if this cover doesn’t scream fall at you, then i don’t know anymore! 😀 i mean, the colors, the tree, it’s basically autumn! 😀 i have read “to kill a mockingbird” by harper lee a very long time ago and i know that i will have to read it again, now that i am older. but i remember loving it. i was totally sucked in by the story and it was one of the first classics i have read in english.
10.) “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by mark haddon
it’s funny. ever since i mentioned “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by mark haddon a few weeks ago on my blog, i have been seeing it on instagram a lot. i don’t know what it is, but it’s just there all the time. i guess people figured out that it’s an amazing book. and look at that cover. doesn’t it scream fall?
that was it guys. that was my list of orange, red, yellow covers that represent fall for me. it’s not about the content, this list is basically just about the colors. that’s what i associate with fall. so deal with it! do you agree? what screams fall for you? let me know! 🙂
