Top Ten Books On My Fall 2018 To-Read List

Posted September 18, 2018 by Jana in Top Ten Tuesday / 44 Comments

Fall officially begins on Friday, and I am so happy! I love fall. It’s probably my favorite season of the year (although I do love winter, too). During the fall season I love reading atmospheric, creepy, gothic kinds of stories. I also love mysteries and romantic suspense. This fall I’ve got a few of these kinds of books that I’d really love to get to, plus a few rich fantasies that sound amazing as well!

Girl At the Grave by Teri Bailey Black
Gothic YA! I am here for it!

Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye
Gothic retelling of Jane Eyre. YES.

Maulever Hall by Jane Aiken Hodge
A creepy, gothic romantic suspense novel that’s been republished recently from its original 1960’s version. There’s amnesia and paranoia and a large country home. Sounds very intriguing!

Tailspin by Sandra Brown
A romantic suspense novel about a pilot and a mysterious delivery.

The Last Woman in the Forest by Diane Les Becquets
Researching a serial killer in the Rocky Mountain wilderness.

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
I’ll devour any Beauty and the Beast retelling, and this one sounds perfect!

A Study In Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas
I’ve been really excited to read the Lady Sherlock historical mystery books, and this would be the perfect time to do it!

The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
This kind of sounds like the book version of that movie Disturbia with Shia LaBeouf. I love that movie!

Beware the Wild by Natalie C. Parker
Another gothic YA romance/mystery/horror that I’ve heard great things about! It takes place in the swamps on Louisiana, and having lived there, I can see how creepy and horrifying this book has the potential to be.

The House at Midnight by Lucie Whitehouse
This one sounds so creepy! I love creepy English manors that seem to have their own personalities.

  1. “Jane Steele” should be on my list too!! I love the sound of this one, and since it’s been on my shelf for WAY too long, I’d say it’s about time I read this one. :)

  2. I didn’t think my book choices were determined by the seasons but now looking at my list it seems I tend towards historical mysteries at this time of year. So similar to your desire for books of a spooky, atmospheric nature. Having said that, I read a lot of historical fiction all year round and my list was largely driven by what’s on my reading schedule for the next few months – for blog tours and to meet publication dates.

  3. Haven’t read a Sandra Brown in a long minute; not familiar with the other authors though I’m curious how the gothic retelling of Jane Eyre approaches the story (especially since I kind of think of the original as somewhat gothic already). As a Caribbean woman, my encounters with winter have been chilling but to each her season, right.

    You’ve got some good ones here. I’ve read both of Sherry Thomas’ Lady Sherlock books and am looking forward to her new one upcoming. THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW is very good. And I used to read Jane Aiken Hodge’s books way, way back in my much younger years. Loved them and am always glad when older books are republished.

  5. I’m anxious to read more reviews of Women in the Window. That’s the one I’m most interested in on your list. A few others I’ll go read the blurb–they might be a good fit for me–thanks!

  6. Oh my goodness, these all look so good! I’m adding a bunch of them to my TBR list on Goodreads.

    I have read THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, which I really liked. It reminded me of the old movie Rear Window, which is what it’s kind of loosely based on. I haven’t seen Disturbia — I’ll have to check it out.

  7. I have not read any of the books you recommended. I’m pretty sure most of them would give me nightmares :) I’m kind of a baby about scary books and movies. For me fall is all about cozy novels where I can cuddle up on the couch with a soft blanket and a hot cup of tea and lose myself for the afternoon.
