Fall book recommendations

Hi, hello and welcome! I’ve seen a ton of fall book recommendations posts of late and I thought it would be so fun to do one of these! Well without further ado lets get onto the bookss

  1. The Young Elites by Marie Lu

‘Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.’

I loved this book so much. It is quite a dark book though, Adelina is definitely an anti hero and she does have many obsessive and disturbing thoughts, which slowly start to take control of her, so if you’re not comfortable with this I don’t really recommend reading this book. But if you’re in the mood for a an epic fantasy (ft a kinda disappointing ending), amazing characters and a heart warming sister bond- this is the perfect read for you!

2. Turtles all the way down by John Green

Well.. this story doesn’t really have a plot per say. I feel like all of John Green’s books are more of coming of age sorta stories instead of actually having a very clear plotline. In this book we follow Aza ,a teenager living with OCD and anxiety, along with her best friend Daisy who set out to search for a missing millionaire. I adore this book, its one of my favourites of all time. Aza’s perspective is just so unique and raw and even though its kind of a simple story its one worth the read. I can’t describe why this book just reminds me of the fall so much. Its the perfect book to snuggle up with and read for long long hours.

3.The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo

I just finished this trilogy and wow it was one heck of a ride. In the world of Ravka we follow Alina( I get so confused with Adelina and Alina AAh) a ‘grisha’ who has just discovered that she has the power of summoning light. and now she has to save the world yada yada. This was a terrible summary. Moving on from that this series is pretty great. It’s a fairly easy read even though it’s extremely cliched at times I still find it to be very enjoyable and fun to read. And hey if you weren’t a fan of this trilogy you can still always pick up Six of Crows and give it shot(i aM NOt throwiNg awaY mY shOt- I couldn’t resist the Hamilton reference ….) Onto the next oneeeee

4.An ember in the ashes by Sabaa Tahir

‘Laia is a slave. Elias is a soldier. Neither is free. Under the Martial Empire, defiance is met with death. Those who do not vow their blood and bodies to the Emperor risk the execution of their loved ones and the destruction of all they hold dear. It is in this brutal world, inspired by ancient Rome, that Laia lives with her grandparents and older brother. But when Laia’s brother is arrested for treason, Laia is forced to make a decision. In exchange for help from rebels who promise to rescue her brother, she will risk her life to spy for them from within the Empire’s greatest military academy. There, Laia meets Elias, the school’s finest soldier—and secretly, its most unwilling. Elias wants only to be free of the tyranny he’s being trained to enforce. He and Laia will soon realize that their destinies are intertwined—and that their choices will change the fate of the Empire itself.’

Have I raved about this book enough? yes. Will I rave about it some more? also yes. *maniacal laughter* but seriously this is a great book. fantastic. awesome. brilliant.*inserts more adjectives* I think I really enjoyed the fact that this was very fast paced, usually fantasy books have slow beginnings or the past starts to waver somewhere n the middle but its managed so well in this book. Also the character development is simple top notch. Yea anyways I think my point got through. It gives out a lot of fall vibes and would just be perfect to read now.

5. Bone gap by Laura Ruby

‘Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps—gaps to trip you up, gaps to slide through so you can disappear forever. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren’t surprised. After all, it wasn’t the first time that someone had slipped away and left Finn and Sean O’Sullivan on their own. Just a few years before, their mother had high-tailed it to Oregon for a brand new guy, a brand new life. That’s just how things go, the people said. Who are you going to blame? Finn knows that’s not what happened with Roza. He knows she was kidnapped, ripped from the cornfields by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. But the searches turned up nothing, and no one believes him anymore. Not even Sean, who has more reason to find Roza than anyone, and every reason to blame Finn for letting her go.’

I have a book review for this which you can check out here. It is very autumn-y and a little bit of a harder book to get into but the mystical world and magical writing will soon completely immerse you in.

anddddd that’s it for this post. Thanks for reading and i hope you enjoyed. Let me know any book recommendations you have and I’ll see you soon ! byEEEeEEEEe(also this was a kind of a short post I’ll definitely write a longer one next week!)

  1. I CANNOT TELL YOU FROM HOW LONG I’VE BEEN MEANING TO READ THE YOUNG ELITES, but apparently I am terrible at starting books that I desperately want to read?? And I also need to read John Green I haven’t read a single one of his books even though they are like the most hyped books ever, and Turtles all the way down looks like a good place to start. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the Grisha Trilogy! I completely agree with you on that, it’s really cliche at times but still so much fun to read! Great post, and thanks for all the recommendations!
