Dracula by Bram Stoker

Dracula by Bram Stoker amazon.com

This season is the perfect time to real a classic tale about monsters. If you've only read about vampires from Twilight, you should try reading the original story by Bram Stoker. If you've already heard it, then you can read Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving, or The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.


Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld amazon.com

Unfortunately, autumn isn't all about ghosts and goblins. It's also the time when we're adjusting to back-to-school life. That's why this book is so fitting for the time of year. It's about a teenage girl who gets dropped off at boarding school. She deals with everything that a typical girl deals with, from boy problems to parental problems to teacher problems. Everyone can relate to her.


Jackaby by William Ritter

Jackaby by William Ritter amazon.com

If you're looking for a series, here's one that will keep you up at night. It's about an "investigator of the unexplained," who is able to see supernatural beings. When Abigail, the main character, lands a position as his assistant, she ends up on a search for a deadly killer who is on the loose. The novel has been referred to as "Doctor Who meets Sherlock," so why wouldn't you read it?


The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman amazon.com

This is the perfect season to read Neil Gaiman. He's the creator of American Gods and Coraline, which means he's the master of all things spooky. If you want to enter a strange world that you get to explore alongside the narrator, then this is the book for you.


Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder amazon.com

This is written by the same woman who wrote Little House on the Prairie. This story is pretty similar, except it tells the story of her childhood in a cabin in Wisconsin. If you're interested in reading about life in the olden days, this book should keep you on the edge of your seat.


Ghosts by Noel Hynd

Ghosts by Noel Hynd amazon.com

This story is about an Oscar-winning actress, a retired cop, and a ghost hunger. Even though they all live in a peaceful town in order to escape the business of the world, they end up dealing with something far crazier than they ever imagined. If you need a ghost story to get you excited for Halloween, then this is the one you've been searching for.

Autumn is the perfect season for catching up on all the reading you've been wanting to do. What book suggestions do you have for all of us this fall?

I've read all the classics: Frankenstein, Dracula, the strange case of Dr Jekyll and mr Hyde. But I'm so down to read them again on a nice autumn night 😄

I adore Ray Bradbury. I've read many of his books and stories but never even heard of the one you mentioned. I'll look for it soon.

Holly, thank you for including Ray Bradbury as a first choice. One of the best storytellers ever, although sometimes forgotten.

I'm gonna try out The Ocean At The End Of The Lane. :)

A couple of these sound really good

Gotta try them out

Yass! :)

Hahha read Dracula one winter brilliant but scary. I will recommend it though great post

Prep was okay.. I didn't quite understand the purpose or the reasoning behind the storyline because it felt like Lee didn't grow as a character as the story progresses and ends. I wouldn't really recommend because I like when characters grow, evolve or learn something about themselves.
