The Bone Keeper by Luca Veste
You can read my full review for this book from last Blogtober here, but I couldn’t write this post without giving this book a mention.
This was the perfect book to read in the Halloween season, and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who loves a crime / thriller novel. This book definitely leaves you second-guessing yourself right until the end!
IT by Stephen King
Especially with the release of the IT movie sequel – if you’re wanting to refresh your memory of the plot, this (huge) book is a great read if you’re ready to commit to a longer book. At just over 1,300 pages, it’s definitely quite the commitment, but I absolutely loved reading this iconic novel.
The Cutting by James Hayman
I always recommend this book when talking about crime and thrillers, as I couldn’t get enough of it when I was reading it.
There are also multiple other books in the same series which follow the same detective, so if you’re looking for a crime / thriller series to get stuck into this Autumn season, this is a great choice.
The House on Cold Hill by Peter James
Peter James is a great crime writer, and as he’s from Brighton, it’s so interesting to find familiarity in his books!
There are plenty of crime books of his to choose from, but The House on Cold Hill gives you a supernatural twist, perfect for Halloween.
The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
I studied this book in my English class at college, and absolutely adored it. Especially now with the book’s sequel out, and the TV series, I’d definitely recommend picking this book up so you can get on board with all the hype!
And, the realistic dystopia is enough to scare anyone about our current state in society, if we’re being honest.
The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton
I recommend this book in any book-related scenario as it is my all-time favourite book. It’s not strictly Autumnal, but the cosy and familiar feeling the book gives me definitely lines up with the atmosphere of Autumn.
Honestly, this book is such an easy read despite focusing on some heavy themes, and the characters are so loveable too.
The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King
If short stories are your thing, then The Bazaar of Bad Dreams is perfect! This collection of Stephen King’s short stories will bring thrillers, crime, horror, and fantasy all in one place.
If you can’t commit to a long storyline this fall, I’d definitely recommend this collection.
What’s on your TBR list this fall?
