Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week there’s a new topic for a top ten list.
This week’s 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 picked some based on color schemes/cover images, some based on themes, and some based on spooky/supernatural/fairy tale aspects.
1. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake – I know the cover is super dark, but the colors of the crowns kind of remind me of fall. Plus there’s magic, which reminds me of witches and Halloween.
2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – Cath’s starting college in this book, so it’s set in the fall. Also, I remember something with pumpkin in it that Levi made. So this book is definitely fallish.
3. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – This one I picked based on the cover color scheme. These colors remind me of the beautiful leaves that change when fall rolls around.
4. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman – This one is a Western, but the color scheme with the browns/oranges reminds me of fall. Plus the skulls (dead things) reminds me of Halloween, and the fact that fall is when nature slowly starts to dwindle before dying come winter.
5. Uprooted by Naomi Novik – The yellow/brown colors, the tree at the bottom, etc. reminds me of fall for this cover.
6. Compulsion by Martina Boone – The look, and the neutral color scheme of the cover of this book makes me think of the fall season. Plus the nature shot is the focus, and I think fall is when a lot of gorgeous tree pictures are taken.
7. November 9 by Colleen Hoover – This one is a no brainer. I mean come on, it’s called November 9, and November is in the fall season. Obviously I had to pick it. Plus the color scheme of the words match the standard fall colors.
8. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead – Red book plus vampires…which remind me of Halloween. This seemed like a great fall theme/color scheme book to add to my list.
9. Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco – So the colors don’t really go with the fall idea, but the focus on murder in this one makes me think of scary movies, and therefore Halloween once again.
10. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas – The color scheme is why I picked this one. Orange/red/a hint of yellow…such obvious fall colors!
Have you read any of the books I listed here? If so, what’d you think of them?
