Seasonal Reading Lists

WINTER Reading List [2017]

21st December officially marks the start of winter and the shortest day, and it’s Christmas Eve Eve Eve Eve! Yaaay! So I have a list of books which I think would be great to read when it’s this time of the year. Some Christmassy, some dark, and some just because. I’m going to start doing these slightly different as well. I would put the seasonal reading list books into a jar, and pull them out at random when I’m stuck for a read, as this seems like a good way to actually read more of the reading list!

AUTUMN Reading List [2017]

It’s now September so now we can officially say summer is over and autumn is here! Autumn is by far my favourite season; the leaves, chilly weather, hot chocolate, fireplace, jumpers, all the best stuff!

It also means another reading list. These are the looks that I mostly want to read in the next few months, and they all also have that ‘autumnal’ feel about them which also makes them well-suited for the season.

1/ Bird Box – Josh Malerman
2/ Peter Pan – J.M. Barrie
3/ Everybody See The Ants – A.S. King
4/ Spellbook of the Lost and Found – Moïra Fowley-Doyle
5/ The Serpent King – Jeff Zentner
6/ The Martian – Andy Weir
7/ Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë
8/ Jane Steele – Lyndsay Faye
9/ Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein
10/ Shadow & Bone – Leigh Burdugo
11/ Tess of the D’Urbervilles – Thomas Hardy
12/ Flame in the Mist – Reneé Ahdieh
13/ The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkein
14/ My Lady Jane – Cynthia Hand/Brodi Ashton/Jodi Meadows
15/ The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender – Leslye Walton
16/ Murder on the Orient Express – Agatha Christie
17/ The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman
18/ The Girl in 6E – A.R. Torre
19/ A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness
20/ The Remains of the Day – Kazuo Ishiguro

21/ And Then There Were None – Agatha Christie
22/ A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickins
23/ City of Bones – Cassandra Clare
24/ IT – Stephen King
25/ Atonement – Ian McEwan
26/ The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde – Robert Louis Stevenson
27/ Owls Do Cry – Janet Frame
28/ The Childrens Act – Ian McEwan

I am excited for all of these books and honestly want to pick all of them up now! Alas, a lot can change in three months, and a lot of books can be bought/discovered in that time aswell… but I do want to get to most of these and *should* appear in my monthly priority reads. If not, I probably will read them in the Winter.
