Six For Sunday is a weekly blog series created by Steph @ ALittleButALot. The theme for October is Autumn Feels. Last week I took a look at books with leaves on the cover, but this week I’m choosing six books that I’d take on an autumn walk with me. This prompt is pretty vague but I’ve chosen to interpret it as books that I think are perfect for reading during this season.
The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
A short but sweet foray into different Halloween customs and traditions that sure to get you in the mood for trick-or-treat-ing!
House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski
Maybe not the best book to take on a walk with you as it’s a whopping 700+ pages, but if you’re looking to be suitably scared, this is the one. Truly one of the most unsettling books I’ve ever read.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
This dark academia classic is perfect for a new semester and is a cracking thriller to boot. Being set in beautiful New England, you can practically hear the leaves crunching underfoot as the characters stroll through campus.
Her Body and Other Parties by Carmen Maria Machado
Take a stroll and dip in and out of these creepy stories from Carmen Maria Machado. My favourites are The Husband Stitch and Inventory.
Welcome to Night Vale by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor
Fall into the weird and wonderful world of Night Vale, where angels definitely DON’T exist and neither do mountains, the dog park is out of bounds, and remember to avoid the library AT ALL COSTS.
The Dreamers by Karen Thompson Walker
Another campus-based novel, The Dreamers sees an unexplained sleep plague a small college town with devastating consequences.
