TTT | Top 10 Books for Fall

Not really a fan of having seasonal TBRs since I’m a very moody and fickle reader. Hence I tweaked this week’s TTT to include top books that would totally suit autumn season!

Although I should just switch it to top dark spooky reads because that’s basically the list lol. 

TTT is a fun bookish weekly meme created by theartsyreadergirl where you list your top 10s based on a different theme each week. I’ll link up her TTT if you would like to participate or know more.


Top 10 Books for Fall

Clown in a Cornfield by Adam Cesare

The spooky vibes and eerie atmosphere that you usually associate with small towns and cornfields is literally what this book is all about. Not to mention it’s a perfect Halloween read.

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

This is your classic murder mystery book. And you best believe that this will be the future me after I retire.

The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones.

This is your gritty, grotesque horror. I’m not going to lie, cut throat horror is not really my thing but I’ve been really intrigued by the story especially since it takes notions from real life events and history.

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

A notable superstar of 2020, you’ve got shady characters, a possible haunted mansion, and seriously gothic vibes. I could just envision Morticia Adams reading this.

Midnight at Malabar House by Vaseem Khan

A murder mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie set in 1950s Bombay following India’s first female police officer Persis as she attempts to solve of the murder of a prominent English diplomat.

The Conductors by Nicole Glover

Magic, mystery, and post civil war Philadelphia, I love the blend of fantasy and realism and the inclusion of underground trains! Underground trains and hidden tunnels have always fascinated me; the idea that so much can exist right beneath us and yet so oblivious to it.

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

A rundown motel in NYC brimming with secrets and a wide cast of visitors, but just what is the Sun Down Motel hiding exactly? Don’t know about you but I could definitely sit back with a cuppa and read this.

The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix

A women’s book club obsessed with true crime are looking to figure out their latest mystery: the artistic handsome stranger that may be a Ted Bundy or something more “supernatural”…

Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen McManus

This is one of the less morbid books, think of it as Twin Peaks (minus the supernatural) x Pretty Little Liars where you follow the resurrected killings of Echo Ridge High’s homecoming queens. Also, serious autumn vibes.

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Some reviewers claimed this to be “too dark” but as October is reeling in there’s no better suited book. It involves secret societies, the occult, and sinister rituals.


Hope you enjoyed the selection of books!

If you wrote a TTT, link up your post below. I would love to check them out!

    1. That’s so great to hear! Mexican Gothic has been one of my most anticipated reads this year, I can’t wait to get into it. Same goes with The Sun Down Motel; something about little towns and abandoned hotels/motels just fit my kind of “spooky”.
