Top Ten Tuesday: Autumnal Book Covers

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish

1.) The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater
This is the book that came immediately to mind when I thought about a book cover that feels autumnal. First of all it has those red and browns that feel very fall but I just generally associate this book with fall because its plot.

2.) The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich
This book definitely has that creepy Halloween/fall feel to it. Like The Scorpio Races it has the colors going for it, yellow and brown in this case, but also the fact that it has trees, a creepy looking house, and the ominous girl in the background.

3.) And the Trees Crept In by Dawn Kurtagich
Dawn's books definitely have a very autumnal feel to them. And the Trees Crept In definitely has the most fall feel to it. I think maybe its the trees. Or the fog. Both of those things are very autumnal. Then you have the UK cover which is super creepy.

4.) Windwitch by Susan Dennard
This book has what looks like leaves falling from the trees, it's very autumnal. Plus with the wind and the rain it definitely has that feel of a fall day, like yesterday here in fact.

5.) Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco
I like to read Historical Mysteries all year but they are especially fun in the fall. So this one made my list for that reason. And also for the same reason as a lot of books on this list it has those reds and browns that scream fall.

6.) Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica
I tend to read Mary Kubica books in the summer but her covers have a fall feel to them. I mean they are mysteries so they have that autumnal vibe. I think that is because of the leaves. I'm so predictable.

7.) This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee
Here is another historical mystery for you. It's got the fog which gives it that feel. Plus it also has that rainy day thing going on which I definitely associate with fall.

8.) Before the Devil Breaks You by Libba Bray
I really like these redesigns. They have that YA horror vibe to them which is so fitting for this series. And because it has that horror vibe it also has the fall feel.

9.) Rooms by Lauren Oliver
This has all the trappings of an autumnal book cover. The colors are orange and yellow, and there are trees. All it's missing is fog.

10.) Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
This one is similar to The Scorpio Races where the cover has that fall feel because of the colors and the fact that it has this woods type vibe to it, but also because it's got an autumnal atmosphere to it.

There you have it, the book covers I think have an autumnal vibe to it. What books made your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. These are all perfect and have such autumn feels! Especially Tiger Lily because of the colors. ♥

  2. OOh nice! We have one cover in common at least! I almost went with Before the Devil Breaks You, but got sidetracked! Kicking myself for forgetting Tiger Lily too! Loved that one and it's definitely a fallish cover too!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I feel like such a fail, when I see how well these TTTs turned out this week. I couldn't make it work, but you did an awesome job. So many good picks. I would not have picked Windwitch, but it totally is autumnal. Rooms and Tiger Lily at tow of my other faves on the list.

  4. Great list! You definitely hit the right mark on this one and I love the variety you have. I don't know why I didn't think of Pretty Baby! I love Mary Kubica.

  5. I'm currently reading The Dead House, and the book truly reflects the cover! The story also has that autumnal feels to it :D
