10 Books that scream “autumn” | My obsession with yellow color continues!

Yellow is one of my favorite colors. I love every shade, from almost browns to pale pastel yellows. And that is the main color I associate with Autumn season. The yellow is everywhere – in the leaves, the pumpkins, and even the clothes (in my favorite mustard yellow ❤ )!

Considering that (A) I love yellow books covers and (B) I was able to find tons of yellow “autumnal” books, I’m joining Top Ten Tuesday meme and today’s theme is Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes.

These are my Top 10 yellow books that will be perfect for the Autumn season!


1 – THE FOUNTAINS OF SILENCE BY RUTA SEPETYS

Madrid, 1957. Under the fascist dictatorship of General Francisco Franco, Spain is hiding a dark secret. Meanwhile, tourists and foreign businessmen flood into Spain under the welcoming guise of sunshine and wine.

Photography–and fate–introduce him to Ana, whose family’s interweaving obstacles reveal the lingering grasp of the Spanish Civil War… more

3 – HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted.

Everyone prepares to sink… more

9 – recursion by blake crouch

That’s what New York City cop Barry Sutton is learning as he investigates the devastating phenomenon the media has dubbed False Memory Syndrome—a mysterious affliction that drives its victims mad with memories of a life they never lived.

    1. Same! 😀 I actually don’t own that many yellow books (not yet at least), and my copy of Recursion is a UK edition. It’s blue… Hoping to read it asap. Dark Matter was very interesting, *fingers crossed* Recursion will be even better.

      1. I was surprised it didn’t scare me more, but I tend to have a higher tolerance for horror. 😃 And I knew all the iconic scenes from the film, which I had no idea weren’t in the book. 🤦‍♀️ But I still really enjoyed both the book and film. But yes, it’s so massive. I flew through it pretty quickly though!

      1. Ha-ha no biggie! I don’t think it’s a main book taught in school. I didn’t read it until I took a Shakespeare course in undergrad. Ooooooo … white covers! So pretty. I have a mixture on my TV stand of my most pretty covers and spines, which are mainly white and black ha-ha!

    1. 😀 Thank you! My book collection consists mostly of white and black books. Unfortunately, I don’t own many yellow ones either…. But I found out that I have tons of red books! Where did they all come from? 🙂
