Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/ meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week I actually decided to do last weeks topic, as despite only a lot of bookmarks, I tend to use the same one and so don’t really have favourites but rather just ones that I use regularly. I am also currently not at home and so literally have three bookmarks with me so.
We are now well into Autumn, and so I am so happy to finally be able to talk about Autumnal book covers. I love all the red and orange colours on these covers and always adore covers that give off these vibes, even if the story inside is not one I’m the biggest fan of.
So here are ten books with some gorgeously Autumnal covers!
This book has been out for just a week and already I am finding a way to squeeze into a blog post. Whilst the US definitely also gives off Autumn vibes, I am in complete love with the UK cover and its gorgeous warm autumnal colours. I can not wait to see if the inside of this book is as beautiful as its cover!
This is by far my favourite cover of the Grisha series, if not my favourite book, something that is likely down to the gorgeous autumnal vibes its gives off. The dark red background and black silhouette just instantly make me thing of Autumn, with the firebird gliding across the top of the book just cements it as a perfect cover for this season.
Not only is the new purple cover of this one perfectly suited to Autumn, but the story inside matches just as well to the season with its spooky vibes and supernatural going-ons. Reading this book will instantly transport you to 1920’s New York City to help solve a string of strange murders, so it is definitely one to pick up around this time of year.
Another purple cover here, and another murder mystery that is sure to engross you on the ever-colder and ever-darker nights. Snuggle up in a blanket as you watch Sorina’s story unfold throughout this gorgeous book, both inside and out, with this cover matching the gorgeous weather outside.
Despite this being a Sci-Fi, the cover of it seems to include every single colour the leaves turn during this season, from the deep red to the light yellow. Although this story is as far from an autumnal one as you could get, its cover is definitely one that fits right in at this time of year.
I just couldn’t stick to my usual rule of only including one Maggie Stiefvater book per post for this one, as not only does The Scorpio Races have a gorgeous red cover, but the story itself is also like Autumn in a book. It is a gorgeous story of a deadly race, a magical island and so much more that will sweep you up into it in an instant.
I love this cover enough as it is, but the gorgeous illustration on the front that gives me Autumnal vibes that just make me love this book even more. Whats more, this story is a great one to devour this time of year as its addictive and fast-paced and will definitely help to pass the time when the rain outside just isn’t stopping.
Even if I wasn’t a fan of this book in the end, I can still appreciate the gorgeous reds and yellows of the cover that just instantly make me want to curl up inside with a mug of tea. I can just imagine the colours of this cover making the most beautiful leaf that slowly falls to the ground, and so I am a little disappointed just for that that I don’t own a physical copy of this one to admire.
Like Maggie Stiefvater, Amanda Foody’s covers just all seem to give off Autumnal vibes in one way or another, with the gorgeous dark red background of this cover instantly cementing it in this list. This book is dark and addictive in the best possible way as you follow Enne and Levi around the City of Sin, and so it is definitely one I would recommend curling up with on a dark and windy night.
Finally, no matter what edition of the cover you look at, this book is always giving off gorgeously Autumnal vibes all year round. Although this story probably won’t make you feel comforted or cozy, its action-packed plot will definitely keep you entertained as the weather turns colder and colder.
