Top Ten Books On My Fall Reading List


I love everything about fall! The clothes, the cooler weather, the brilliant colors, my morning vanilla chai!  It's so close I can feel it!  And something else I LOVE about fall?  Ok, well the new t.v. season - yes - but even more so, atmospheric fall tales of gothic manors, creepy stalkers, homemade monsters, and crackling-leaves-in-the-woods-while-you-run-in-the-dark-from-a-serial-killer-type books!  Yay!

I'm joining That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday!  Here are the top ten books I'm looking forward to reading this fall:



Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley - this book is top of my list because it is the 200th anniversary and there is an international event that you can find out about on Frankenreads .  I'm signed up to do a read-a-long over at Books in Bloom for #FrankenFest



2.  Nora Roberts' "Dark Witch" 
3.  Joe Hill, "NOS4A2" 
4.  Edgar Allan Poe's "The Pit and the Pendulum" 
5. Shirley Jackson, "The Haunting of Hill House" 


6.  Mark Z. Danielewski, "House of Leaves" 




8. Stephen King's "Joyland" 
9. Neil Gaiman's "The Graveyard Book" 
10. Jane Austen's "Northanger Abbey" *a re-read

  1. House of Leaves is a beast of its own but so good! The more you can binge-read it the more engrossing it is.

    1. I must admit, I have STARTED the book before - about a year ago - and gave up. So I plan on (hopefully) finishing it this year!

  2. I really enjoyed Frankenstein. I need to reread it! You've got a great list! Northanger Abbey would be a good one to reread as well this time of year.

    1. I'm really looking forward to Frankenstein. It's been such a part of American literary history and I have never picked it up before.

  3. Ooh you've got some spooky reads picked out! I love fall for the same reasons- I'm not a horror fan but I do like a good spooky read in autumn, to go with the falling leaves and cooler days!

    1. I haven't read Frankenstein either - but I figure the 200th anniversary is a great time to do it!

  5. Great list!! I’ve wanted to read Frankenstein for a while now. I also read The Haunting of Hill House last year. It’s definitely the perfect book to reading during Halloween time!
