Happy fall!! Every year/season I do a recommendations post where I share some of my favorite books that embody the atmosphere of the new season. Definitely check out last years recommendations because it has some all-time favorites on it.

Here are 10 other amazing books to read this fall!

This is a YA fantasy based around Arthurian legends that takes place on a college campus. It has secret societies, a school setting, and tons of magic!

2. Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

This YA fantasy takes place in the days leading up to Dia De Muertos following a family who can see spirits. It has amazing fall vibes and heart-warming relationships.

3. Where Dreams Descend (Kingdom of Cards #1) by Janella Angeles

This is an extremely magical and atmospheric fantasy surrounding a circus. This story is lush and dark and full of intrigue.

4. Bringing Down the Duke (League of Extraordinary Women #1) by Evie Dunmore
