Ah, Fall! We chose the book covers that radiate those Fall vibes. For me, Fall is synonymous with all things mysterious and magical but not scary. I am a total wimp; I like the fluffy Disney side of Fall and Halloween. I have read some of the books I’ve chosen, but I chose just because the cover gave me those Fall vibes. Here we go.
Empire of Wild by Cherie Dimaline
This cover gives me Fall Vibes largely because of the forest on this edition. It’s hard to tell because it’s a black and white photo, but the number of leaves on the tree struck me as very autumnal. Also, this may be odd, but the green chair on this cover makes me think of reading in the fall.
Additionally, the content of the book gives me fall vibes because of its fantastical nature. Though this is an indigenous narrative, there is an element of shapeshifting or a kind of werewolf.
The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
What do you know about another fantasy novel and another cover that involves elements of a forest? The depiction of a mystical forest on this cover makes me think of magic and mystery concepts synonymous with fall for me.
Dust and Shadow by Lyndsay Faye
Once again, a cover with mystery. This cover not only gives off fall vibes with the colours, the oranges and reds. As well the cover depicts fall weather, dreary wetness that is very Canadian fall.
This book is a great Sherlock Holmes novel not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. And there is something about Sherlock Holmes that sings Fall Vibes. I love to read mysteries in the fall.
The Royal Art of Poison by Eleanor Herman
This cover is spooky! The hand reaching out and creepily putting something in the cup. Also, the green on the cover is very slime-like.
This non-fiction book is all about the historical cases of royals being poisoned. It is very informative and dark. It fits into the Halloween aspect of fall.
To Seduce a Witch’s Heart by Nadine Mutas
The purple witchy-ness of this cover screams fall vibes for me. Whether or not the symbols on the cover are supposed to indicate magic, especially when added to the purple. Purple itself is also a very fall colour for me, and this cover is full of purple.
A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I have written my love for this book in other instances, ironically in a post about books that give off summer vibes. But for me, the cover gives off fall vibes. Once again, the witchy symbols on the cover are all fall, and then the picture of Oxford makes me think of school and therefore fall too.
Toil and Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft Edited by Jessica Spotswood & Tess Sharpe
This cover has more purple!! This cover is all about the fall vibes added to the orange and the illustrations of witchy things.
Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow
Once again, nature illustrations added to witches make me think magic and fall.
A Secret History of Witches by Louisa Morgan
The antique style of the cover and the implication of magic and witches makes me think of fall when I see this cover.
The Book of Barely Imagined Beings by Caspar Henderson
This cover has more traditional fall colours like fallen leaves. The creatures illustrated on the cover are mystical in nature makes me think about fall.
