Books That I Associate With Autumn

How to Balance Uni, Reading & Blogging-4.jpg
Hello! Autumn is well upon us now, and it’s a season that always makes me want to cozy up with a book, a blanket and the biggest mug of hot chocolate I can find. It’s also a season which I’ve found I’ve linked certain books to in my head. Maybe I read them this time of year, maybe it’s the content, the cover, or title, but here are the books that I associate with autumn:


The Night Circus is such an autumnal book in my mind, even though I first read it in the summer — the circus opens in October and it’s the most perfect book for this colder, cozy weather. This book just makes me so nostalgic for October and November nights and I would give so much to be able to experience the circus. Annnnd, now I want to reread it again.


I still haven’t even read Harry Potter yet, but I always see people get excited about it around this time of year so I suppose that is where the link to the season comes from here! I’m planning on finally starting this series this autumn.


I read this book when I was around 13 or 14 and it was my absolute favourite for the longest time. There’s something about autumn that makes me nostalgic for all of my favourite historical fiction novels and makes me want to discover more.


Uprooted is another book that I read in warmer weather but reminds me of the colder weather. This story is perfect to sit all warm and comfy inside and read during the autumn (and this one has strong winter-y vibes for me, too!).


Caraval gives me similar feelings as The Night Circus in that it reminds me of October/ November nights and makes me really nostalgic for a place/ event that doesn’t even exist in the real world. Caraval reminds me of candy floss and hot chocolate and wearing a dozen layers out in the cold.


I think the main reason I associate City of Bones with autumn besides the vampire and warlocks etc, is that I read it in the Autumn when I first read it back in 2013 (I should add that I don’t actually remember if this book is set in the autumn too lol so that could also be a big factor!). I find it so interesting that even though I’ve since reread this book a few times in the warmer weather, it still feels like an autumn read.

Do you tend to associate books with specific months/ seasons? Which make you think of Autumn? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I always associate Harry Potter with winter. I think that’s because I read the first book many, many years ago when it was snowing like crazy and I was leaning against the radiator. 🙂
    This is a lovely post. I don’t even know what books I would associate with this season. Or any season. 🙈


  2. I typically associate books with whatever season I read them during too! And can I just say I’m so jealous that you get to read Harry Potter for the first time. There’s nothing like a first read! Hopefully you’re planning on blogging that! 😉

    1. I’m glad it’s not just me! It always makes me want to reread them during the season I first read them in haha. I’m so excited to finally read HP, I think I’ll definitely be planning a few posts about it 😆
