Ten Books With Fall Themes and Covers

For future TTT topics, click here.

It's officially fall weather here where I (Jana) live, and this is when I love to whip out my fall reads and get cozy. The following books just scream fall to us. If you have recommendations for others, please tell us in the comments!

Swann's Way by Marcel Proust--This cover always reminds me of fall. It's a super vibrant and yummy red.

The Raven (Tales and Poems) by Edgar Allan Poe--Probably more Halloween-y and because of the subject matter, but this cover just screams fall.

Look Homeward, Angel by Thomas Wolfe--Maybe not specifically fall-ish, but I frequently find myself turning to this book in the fall. Probably just a me thing. :)

No Country for Old Men by Cormac McCarthy--This cover looks like fall. And isn't it deer season when the novel starts? I don't know. Whatever.

Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places by Colin Dickey--Full confession: I haven't read this yet. But I can't talk about the fall without drawing in the spooky, haunted stuff, so here we are.

Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco - This book takes place in December, but the cover is beautifully fall and creepy for this time of year! And I loved it, so there's that too!

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - A beautiful fall cover for a beautiful fall book! This story takes place in October and November, when the wind is chilly and the sea relentless. It's super fall and unique and atmospheric. It's the perfect read for this time of year.

The Caged Graves by Dianne K. Salerni - This gothic mystery/historical fiction novel is very fall and very creepy.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling - I always get the urger to read this series in the fall.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman - Such a creepy cover!


  1. Glad to see 'Prince Dracula' on this list. That's a perfect pick for today's feature. :)

  2. Is Hunting Prince Dracula worth the read? I've seen it everywhere but I'm not sure.

    1. Oh my goodness, YES. It's in my top 5 of the entire year! I loved it, and I've read 3 books since then and still can't stop thinking about it!

  3. I also get the urges for Mr. Potter this time of year!

  4. OOh nice ones!! This one was harder than I thought to do! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. I LOVE the cover of Ghostland! I read that one last Fall :) Enjoy!

  6. I need to read The Scorpio Races. I agree, it's a great time to read Harry Potter!

    Here's my TTT:


  7. Great picks! The Graveyard Book is such a fun autumnal read.

  8. I have to agree: I also feel the urge to re-read Potter in the fall.

    I completely forgot that "fall books" could include Halloween books! Then again... Halloween Books could be a post all to itself...

  9. I also chose The Scorpio Races. I'm glad to see it makes others think of fall as well. :)

  10. Hunting Prince Dracula looks absolutely perfect for autumn!

  11. I've got Ghostland out from the library, but I haven't read it yet. Love that The Scorpio Races made your list! It's such a good, atmospheric fall read.
