How was your week? I finally finished Gideon the Ninth and got absolutelly MURDERED by it so this is a message from beyond the grave. Only Harrow the Ninth can help me now. Starting it ASAP.
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Autumn Read!
I guess this will be someting else for everyone! I’m curious what Autumn means to you guys. For me it’s apples, back to school, classics, spooky reads… Let’s see if my list will account for that.
|| All The Bad Apples by Moïra Fowley-Doyle||
💛 family curse
💛 witches, banshees, ghosts
A book with a family curse, witches, banshees, ghosts, magical elements mixed with everyday life.
Apparently, apples are some motif there, too, so not only spooky times giving me those autumn vibes.
And wouldn’t you agree that this cover belongs to some autumn aesthetic moodboard?
|| Blood Countess by Lana Popović ||
Vampires are autumn thing and nobody can convince me otherwise.
Tell me that being drenched in cold November rain, old spooky castle, and trees with barely any leaves left is not the first visual you have when thinking about bloodsuckers? Come on!
|| Lady Hotspur by Tessa Gratton ||
💛 Henry IV retelling
💛 I think I have an eARC of this that I should have read long time ago
Shakespeare is going back to school for me and going back to school is autumn.
I haven’t read Henry IV yet so I have no idea what’s it about (and maybe I should read it first?) but it’s sapphic so we’re in for a treat.
|| The Scapegraces by Hannah Abigail Clarke ||
💛 high school
What’s more autumn than withces and covens and high school???
At least, I hope it has autumn vibes.
Again, I have the eARC of that and I should have read it already so somebody MAKE ME, PLEASE.
|| The Dark Tide by Alicia Jasinska ||
A third book I have an eARC of and haven’t read yet.
Sapphic witches are winning this autumn and nobody’s happier than me for it. We need more sapphic witches and the world is finally providing. Thank you.
What autumn vibes mean to you? I alread said that for me it’s apples, school, and spooky stories but there’s so much more to autumn so tell me!
