Autumn has arrived! The smell of cider is in the air and the leaves are changing into hues of red and gold. Today, I’d thought I’d share a compilation of books to enjoy throughout this fall season! Enjoy!
Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Cordova
Synopsis: Alex, a girl from a family of brujas (witches) wishes she had a normal life instead of the one she’s destined for. On her Deathday celebration she tries to get rid of her powers and accidentally sends her family into Los Lagos where she must rescue them from danger.
This was such a fun book! It’s got fantasy, witches, magic, and adventure. On top of that, the coming of age aspect of the story makes it relatable to wide audience.
Trixi Pudong and the Greater World by Audrey Mei
Take a journey through generations with Trixi Pudong and The Greater World. It’s a story that is centered around one family’s story as they struggle with their hopes, desires, through turbulent times.
If you’re a fan of historical fiction like me, you will surely enjoy this novel. Mei not only focuses on a theme of family in this novel, but she also helps readers to explore a part of world history they may be unfamiliar with.
We Are All Made of Molecules by Susin Nielsen
Another story focused on family, this book follows the story of a newly blended family. Stewart is academically brilliant but socially awkward while his older sister, Ashley is the popular girl in her class, but she is a bad student. Will these two find a middle ground and find a way to get along?
I love this book’s message of being yourself and not letting anybody change who you are. While it’s a lighthearted novel overall, I liked that the author does discuss some deeper topics such as bullying and peer pressure.
The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis
This novel follows a girl named Elka who is raised in the wilderness by a man named “Trapper”. When she finds out the man she loves as a father is a killer she find herself having to escape from everything she’s ever known.
A gripping page-turner! This book is perfect for fans of thriller and suspense stories. Lewis crafts an excellent tale and carefully builds up the tension throughout the entire novel. You won’t see what’s coming next!
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
As always for this list, I like to include books I read during school since fall is the start of the back to school season. The novel tells the story of Amir, a young boy from Kabul, whose closest friend is Hassan, his father’s young Hazara servant set against a backdrop of events.
An amazing novel that I think everyone should read. It not only opened my eyes to some historical events I had little knowledge of, but the author also has a way of exploring the themes of guilt and redemption as well as family.
And that completes my recommendations for fall! What books do you recommend? Comment below.
