Top Ten Tuesday #103

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books With Autumn Covers. 

This was difficult, I didn't really feel the theme. I love Autumn. So while these books themselves may not be particularly autumnal (most of them are) the covers and how they remind me of autumn prompted me to pick them.

Reign: The Prophecy by Lily Blake
I'm Reign trash and re-watch it pretty much on loop all autumn. And the rich colours on this cover scream out for the season.

STAGS by MA Bennett
There's something about stags as an animal that makes me think of autumn. Probably because it's rutting season so... Anyhow, these magnificent antlers are all up autumn for me.

High Force by LJ Ross
Out of all of the covers in the series, this is the most autumnal. And I can still feel the icy chill of the water.

Maresi by Maria Turtschaninoff
Just look at the reds and the flowing lines. It reminds me of falling leaves and high winds.

Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davis
Oh look, another stag. Surprise. I loved reading this in autumn as a child, I have vivid memories of being 10/11 and curled up in bed reading this as the wind howled outside.

The Sin Eater's Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
It just makes me think of the start of autumn, where it's still mostly green but the first yellows and reds are appearing.

Witch Hunt by Tabitha Morrow
This just makes me think of those days between Halloween and Guy Fawkes night, where everything is slightly chaotic and exciting.

Banished by Liz de Jager
I know that's it's crows on the cover (and they're autumnal enough) but I always thing for murmurations of starlings when I see this cover.

Hunger by Melvin Burgess
This is a super creepy cover, and the book itself is intense. I love it, and 100% recommend the audiobook, it has my now favourite narrator.

The Falconer by Elizabeth May
Maybe it's the fire and the smoke, maybe it's the grey colour scheme reminding me of the grey sky outside, but this cover reminds me of autumn.

What is your favourite autumnal cover?


  1. Oh these are great covers! I didn't do this week's prompt because I couldn't think of any autumn book covers!

  2. I really like the cover for High Force! Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  3. I definitely want to try watching Reign - it does look promising. :)

  4. I LOVE Reign! Usually I'm not interested in historical stuff at all. [I think that point's proven since I call it.. stuff..?] That series is different though. Even my boyfriend likes it and that's saying even more, haha.

    I bought The Sin Eater's Daughter in September; simply because of the cover. It's so gorgeous! Still need to read it.. Oops.. :')

  5. Great list! I really feel the autumnal vibe with all these books. ☺️��

  6. Great picks! Those are all new to me. I do have the audio for The Sin Eater's Daughter but haven't listened yet. I'll have to add Hunger to my Wishlist!

  7. I haven't read The Sin Eater's Daughter yet, but I do love the cover!

  8. Love the stags cover! but my fav Autumn cover is The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry! & I'd pair it with a lapsang souching smoked tea!

  9. Love the Falconer cover, and STAGS looks awesome too. Fire Bringer is nice with the mist and the night time vibe. Great mix of covers.

  10. Ohh The Sin Eater's Daughter is such a great choice for this week's theme - the cover does remind me a lot of this season - plus, it's beautiful :)
    Lovely post! :)

  11. Ooh I really want to read The Falconer and S.T.A.G.S!!! I really love autumn colours, even if I don't really have Autumn like that in Australia.😂 THEY'RE SO PRETTY.

  12. Hi! These look like great Fall covers! :) I struggled with this week a little, too.

  13. This is such a great post idea! I am loving your picks, especially that cover with the gorgeous stag! I know you *shouldn't* technically pick a book by it's cover but that one would definitely tempt me to pick it up and read!
