Autumn is here! It’s the season for traveling to Cider Mills, watching horror movies on Halloween, drinking Pumpkin Spice Lattes, and enjoying the leaves change into a rainbow of red! Today I’m recommending 5 books from various genres that are great [picks for fall!
Confessions by Kanae Minato
Confessions is a dark and gritty murder mystery that will have you turning the pages. If you like to read thrillers, you’re in for a wild ride. From the very first page the reader is thrown into chaos as Moriguchi, the teacher, threatens to out one of her students for killing her daughter, but instead decides to make them suffer by punishments. This is definitely an intense book.
How to Be a Heroine by Samantha Ellis
This novel is a fascinating look at heroines throughout well-known pieces of fiction and talks about them in-depth. I found myself not only getting to know these literary women on a deeper level, but I also learned a lot about the authors that created them. Ellis does a great job of intertwining her own life story with the characters she admires in books. If you enjoy humor essays this book is for you.
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
This novel is fantastic start to the Perfect Chemistry trilogy. I read this book in high school and I like that it features diverse characters as well as puts an urban spin on the traditional contemporary romance. It also sends the message to readers about not judging people on the surface and taking the time to get to know who they really are.
I’ve been reading this book lately and I think you’ll enjoy it if you like graphic novels. This series follows five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp where they encounter the supernatural. It’s laugh out loud funny and features a colorful cast of characters that add their own flavor to the story.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
When I think about fall, the back to school season also comes to mind. This list wouldn’t be complete without a classic, timeless read. One of my favorite plays I read in school was The Crucible. It’s a partially fictionalized story of the Salem witch trials that took place in Massachusetts during 1692 and 1693. There is a lot of drama in the plot and it kept me on the edge of my seat.
And that completes my recommendations for fall! What books do you recommend? Comment below. 🙂
