Top Ten Tuesday – Top 10 Book Covers That Make Me Think of Fall

top ten tuesday

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover screams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish).  I feel like I kind of lamed out on this topic because I completely drew a blank about all things Fall as soon as I read it.  I’m sure once I see what everyone else has done with it, I’ll feel like a fool, haha.  Since my brain just wouldn’t work, I decided to just focus on book covers that remind me of fall because of their color schemes, since those red, orange, and gold earthy tones are what I most associate with fall. The books themselves have little or nothing to do with fall; it’s all about the colors!

    I had so little luck with this topic, I skipped it. 😆 But I like that you went with fall colors. I definitely get the autumnal vibe with the oranges and reds. I bandied about a few ideas: books with the word “fall” in the title or books where the characters fall into something (love, despair, etc). I like to cull from the list of books I read, and I couldn’t make it work. So, good job!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggled a bit with this week’s topic. Can’t wait to see what you came up with. I was going to do leaves too, but could only think of 2 covers, lol.

    The covers on all these books are beautiful and definitely giving me an autumn vibe! I’ve wanted to read Homegoing and A Clockwork Orange for a while but still haven’t managed to get round to them (yet). And any list with a Game of Thrones mention is a winner!
