Autumn is my favourite season. It’s the season of fallen leaves and rainy days. We start to look forward to Christmas without worrying too much about being behind on our shopping. But most of all, autumn always makes me want to read a very specific type of book. I’m no longer in summer mode, craving sugary sweet romances, I’m after something darker. Below are some of my recommendations of books I’ve either read or am hoping to read very soon that I reckon will be the perfect stories to curl up with this autumn.
Afraid of commitment? Or just fancy some quick, atmospheric reads? These have you covered…
I really wanted to love this novel.
Now before I start, I want to say that I didn’t dislike it. I definitely enjoyed it! It made me laugh and it made me cry. It is an incredibly sweet first novel that I know lots of people have been loving so far! But On the Other Side was not 100% my cup of tea. Perhaps I’m too picky or maybe I was a little bit too old for it, despite the novel technically being classed as “Women’s Fiction”. Either way, I know that lots of people will have enjoyed On the Other Side a lot more than I did. I’m not here to tell them they’re wrong for doing so! But I did have a mixed response to it, so here are my thoughts overall.
