10 Books to Read This Fall

Hello everyone! My favorite hobby is, and has always been, reading. I love all types of books and, if I am not doing school work, then I am constantly reading every chance I get. I am always on the hunt for new books to read. I think one of my biggest fears is one day I won’t be able to find books that would interest me because I have already read them all. But today is not that day and I have a list of all the books I hope to finish this fall season. The fall time is my favorite season and, especially since Halloween is in October, I love to read mystery books and books with a little bit of a twisted plot. The closer Halloween approaches, the more I love to read whimsical and haunting books to get myself into the spooky spirit. Also, since school begins in the fall time, I like to try to grow as a person and so I find myself reaching for self-help books. I also enjoy reading cozy and easy reads that are cute and cliché so some of the books I am going to mention can be read during any season but I prefer to read them in the fall time.

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy.
Aila Quinn’s mother recently died and now Aila and her brother are forced to move to the city of Sterling where their mother, Juliet, grew up. Juliet, herself, has always been a mystery and when Aila moves to Sterling she finds even more weird things occurring that somehow link back to her mother. Every seven years, everything vanishes. Dreams, scents, flowers, reflections created by the lakes, and reflections from mirrors all disappear. As the next disappearance event inches closer, Aila is trying to crack the secret to why this is happening but to do so, she will uncover everyone else’s secrets, including her mother’s.

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas.
Kacey is the new girl in Broken Falls. She has left her mother to live with her father, step mother, step brother, and little half-sister. Kacey seems to fit in here. She even bonds with two of the popular girls in her new school and she quickly found herself a part of the in the in crowd. But all of a sudden her friends become distant and they neglect to tell her about the biggest party of the entire year. She doesn’t take it too personal until everything changes when one of her new friends doesn’t make it back from that big party alive. Kacey is about to learn that when you are new to town, you shouldn’t trust anybody.

You by Caroline Kepnes.
This book is very creepy and something that might keep you on edge the entire time you are reading it. It tells the story of a guy named Joe who believes he is meant to be with a girl named Beck. He constantly is controlling and manipulating Beck’s life because he believes he is in love with her. This story allows the reader to get into the mind of a complete psychotic stalker. Joe will not allow anyone or anything to get in the way of his new love with Beck. He will go to great lengths to prevent anything from ruining their ‘perfect’ life.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
A secret carnival comes to town during the night without any warning and only lasts that one night. Within the carnival, there has been a long-time rivalry between two magicians named Celia and Marco. Ever since their childhood, the have been training and growing to outdo one another. But they have been battling something even more difficult than each other, their love for each other. In love or not, they must continue their fight to see who is the better magician and only one can come out on top. Who wins can and will impact everyone else who is involved.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
This is the story about a young man who grows up to be one of the greatest wizards to ever have lived. This book tells the childhood and upbringing of this young man and allows you to grow up with him. It has been known to be a book that makes you feel as if you have become a wizard and as if the story is by you. The author is also known to write in such a poetic way that the story is very beautiful to read.

Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout.
This is the first book in the LUX series which has become one of my all-time favorite book series. Obsidian is about a girl who has recently moved right before the start of her senior year in high school. She quickly becomes friends with the girl who lives next door to her but she can’t say the same about the girl’s brother, Daemon. That all changes when she realizes that her next-door neighbors are not who, or rather what, they seem to be. Instead, the siblings are not from earth and their enemies are not either. I love the romance between the main character and Daemon and I also love that this book has cliché moments but overall, it is not a cliché supernatural romance novel.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin.
This is another book that I am absolutely in love with. I have read this trilogy hundreds of times and still this book amazes me. Mara Dyer wakes up in the hospital with no reciliation of what has happened. All her friends died in an accident that she miraculously escaped without a scratch. She doesn’t believe that after everything she has gone through she could ever find someone who will love her flaws but she is proven wrong when she meets a boy named Noah who seems to know more about her than she knows of herself. This book takes you on a journey that might even make you feel like you are going crazy.

Present over Perfect by Shauna Niequist.
Life is supposed to be meaningful and incredible. Yet everyone seems to be doing mediocre things and communicating through text messages. No one is living up to their potential. Instead, everyone is inhibiting a dual life style. In Present over Perfect, Shauna Niequist takes the reader on a journey on how to the get the maximum use out of your life. It is time to start living instead of just breathing and she shows you how she was able to achieve this.

The Art of Not Giving a F*** by Mark Manson.
In a world where people try to always be happy Mark Manson explains how not striving to be happy will bring you happiness. I have heard from multiple people how life changing this book is. Everyone has always expressed how happiness will bring you all the treasures of life to you but first you have to be happy. This book is described to be blunt and raw. There is no sugar coating when it comes to Manson telling the truth about happiness. He tells you how you shouldn’t try to make the bad moments in your life good, instead you should learn from them and embrace every flaw and mistake you make.

The Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst.
I have had multiple occurrences where I have felt left out and rejected. In this book, Lysa TerKeurst shows her firsthand experiences when it comes to rejection and being the outcast in the group. She also uses biblical references and Jesus to explain why it is okay to be rejected and how we should cope with it. If you allow it to, I feel like this book can change your life if you too are excluded or facing rejection.

Unfiltered by Lily Collins.
I have already mentioned 10 books but I wanted to add a little bonus book because of how much I love this book. I may seem a tad bit bias because Lily Collins has been one of my favorite actresses since I first saw her on the Blind Side but this book opened my eyes to so much. Lily Collins talks about her struggles with her eating disorder and toxic relationships and she really works to be informative so that you, the audience, can learn from her mistakes and work to not repeat them.

That is all for the books I want to read this fall. I know that the fall time is one of the busiest times during the year because of school starting up so I probably will not be able to read all of them but if I could, I would spend all my time reading these 11 books. Not only did this post get me super excited for Halloween but it also got be excited to read some of these books and let y’all know what I think.
