Autumn is here! And so I decided I’d do another of those “Books for each season” post like I did back in the beginning of summer! Here are six books that I read during autumn that always make me think of crisp leaves and chilly winds and cinnammon tea!
1. The Rogue Crew by Brian Jacques
This is the final installment in the Redwall series. I read a few years ago right as school was starting up, and it really was a lovely farewell to summer and to a most beloved book series.
2. Anne of Windy Poplars by Lucy Maud Montgomery
I really loved this book. All of the Anne Shirley books have a nice, homey feel to them, but this one was one of my favorites.
3. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
I talk about this book so much, but I had to include it on the list because I itch to re-read it every November.
4. Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott
This book was assigned for a class, and while I started it in the summer to give me an edge, it really just makes me think of fall and of going back to school. If you want a Medieval adventure about knights and castles and the lot, check this one out!
5. Johnny Tremain by Ester Forbes
This is a fabulous book written from the perspective of a young boy during the Revolutionary War. This was another book assigned in school, but really, it had no business making me cry as much as it did. I love the characters and the story.
6. The Ballad of the White Horse by G. K. Chesterton
I don’t think I have much to say about this one that hasn’t been said already (it was the book that made me love poetry, it’s gorgeously written, it’s about King Alfred, etc.) I’ve read it twice, both times in October/November, so it had to make this list!
I wonder what I’ll end up reading this autumn! I’m excited to find out!
