Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was books that give off autumn vibes.

Autumn is for starting a book in the early afternoon, falling into its lush and atmospheric prose as I sink into a blanket cocoon, and then coming up for air only to realize it’s night. While most of these books are slightly spooky and vaguely (if not outright) fantastical, some are just straight-up thrillers. See also fifteen horror novels on my tbr and five witchy books to read this fall for even more recs!

  1. This is a fantastic list You have a fantastic variety of genres and I am adding Black Iris and The Strangers to my winter reads. It seems like your TBR pile is set for now but I just finished a book that I 100% think you should include in a future reading list. It’s called “Ain’t No Messiah” by Mark Tullius. His writing style reminds me a lot of Chuck Palahniuk along with the twists and turns throughout the book. The book follows Joshua who is desperately trying to figure out who he is while escaping his abusive family, his traumatic past, and the cult-like church he belongs to. Not only that, his father has told him *and many others* that Joshua is the second coming of Jesus Christ. This is a highly addictive psychological thriller that I really enjoyed and was thrilled to hear that this is a series! More books to come! You can read more about it here:
    Hope you will check it out! Happy Holidays
