Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week you compile a list of ten books which coincide with that week’s theme. You can find everything you need to know about joining in here!
This week’s theme is ‘Book Covers with Autumn Colours/Vibes’, and when I think of autumn it’s the colours I think of; the lush browns, oranges and reds that the leaves turn to. I love autumn.
The Familiars by Stacey Halls: This novel follows the events of the Pendle Witch Trials, so it’s a novel I’d really like to read, and that cover is a burst of autumn.
Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko: The UK cover of this book is stunning and so autumnal.
The King of Crows by Libba Bray: This entire series is perfect reading for autumn – especially around Halloween!
Foxes Unearthed: A Story of Love and Loathing in Modern Britain by Lucy Jones: We have a very strange relationship with foxes in the UK – for some of us they’re almost like fae creatures from myth, while others see them as nothing more than vermin searching through the bins – and I found this piece of non-fiction all about our relationship with them really interesting.
The Irish Princess by Elizabeth Chadwick: I know very little about medieval Ireland, but I’ve heard very good things about Chadwick’s novels.
All the Bad Apples by Moïra Fowley-Doyle: The US edition of this novel is very pretty too, but I adore this UK cover. The colours are so satisfying.
Eliza Rose by Lucy Worsley: I believe this Tudor era novel follows a young girl who becomes a lady-in-waiting for Henry VIII’s fifth queen, Kathryn Howard, and it sounds interesting.
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers: I’m so fond of this series, set in late medieval Brittany, which follows a group of assassin nuns and I love these new covers.
