5 Great Fantasy Books To Read This Autumn and Winter

The TBR (To Be Read) Pile is the hallmark of avid readers.

Full of books you picked up, ordered online or found in a charity shop that called to you and demanded you take them home to escape into their pages. The only problem is that you are currently immersed in the pages of another book, maybe even multiple books, and thus these new additions will have to wait!

There’s also the issue of timing. Sometimes I see a book that I know I’d like- but I also know that I don’t want to read it right now. For example, a book that is set in a specific seasonal period- I’m not ready to start reading my Christmas themed books in October, but maybe late November. As for the summer beachy reads- those are now for 2024!

These are my top five TBR for the next few months, with links to purchase (or just to read the synopsis!)

The Secret History- Donna Tartt

This book doesn’t have Chapters per se, rather it’s divided into Book one and Book two which loosely correspond with the before and after of the main event of the book. I’ve read Book one which I have definitely enjoyed- but I’ve lost steam with reading the rest. I blame the darker days which generally don’t find me feeling my best or most energetic to read. I love the aesthetic of dark gloomy days spent reading (very Dark Academia) but in practice my circadian rhythym just can’t summon the energy to do it.

Practical Magic- Alice Hoffman

I SO wanted to finish this book by Halloween, but it’s not going to happen. Sigh. There’s still November though!

The Book of Magic- Alice Hoffman

See above for the dissapointment I feel for not reading this before Halloween. This is the long awaited sequel to Practical Magic that I have never read (Unlike Practical Magic) and I am tempted to read this in lieu of Practical Magic as the copies I have are from the library and I’m running out of renewals. Wish me luck.

The Book of Night- Holly Black

This came up on my Instagram feed and the title absolutely sold it to me, and the cover. After a quick read of the synopsis on Amazon I put it on my list. It’s darker than what I might usually read (as is The Secret History to be fair), but I think it would be perfect for Autumn/Winter time.

The Atlas Six- Olivie Blake

I’ve seen this doing the rounds on Insta and it’s on my Amazon wishlist. I’m currently loving books with DA (Dark Academia) and Fantasy themes, if you couldn’t tell from this list.

There you have it, my top five picks for the darker months that are ahead. What are you reading? Do you read seasonally, or are you busting out the beachy reads in December? (Maybe you are if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere!) Let me know!
