BOOK RECOMMENDATION: fall 2016 edition


well, guess what, GUESS WHAT.

FALL IS HERE! YAY! (unless you live in Australia where summer is about to start, but YAY to you too because summer is still my favorite season.) so i guess it’s time for some fall-themed book recommendation (and believe me, as a fantasy lover, i have A LOT. so we’ll be here for a good amount of time).

the raven cycle, by maggie stiefvater

i can’t recommend these books enough. i still have to read THE RAVEN KING, but the other books are AMAZING. it’s not really fantasy, but it’s not contemporary either, and it has a lot of fall-ish vibes. PERFECT reads for this fall. plus all the books are out, so you can binge read them.

(also, Stiefvater announced that she’s working on a Ronan centered trilogy, so we’d better get more of this world in the next years.)

would recommend if you like:

  • legends
  • welsh kings
  • mystery

11500217angelfall, by susan ee

okay, i may or may not have rated this book 3 stars on goodreads, but i still highly recommend it, because i know a lot of people love it, and because the idea of the book is very original. post apocalyptic world with angels and the main character falling in love with one of the enemy? may seem cheesy, but still really good. you should give it a try.

would recommend if you like:

  • books about angels
  • science-fiction
  • post-apocalyptic settings

25810644a fierce and subtle poison, by samantha mabry

i honestly don’t know why this book is so underrated. it’s just so diverse and so original and creepy, plus it’s the kind of books that makes you THINK. everyone should read A FIERCE AND SUBTLE POISON. i know it has a lot of not really good ratings and reviews on goodreads, but just give it a try. please.

would recommend if you like:

  • books set outside the US
  • books that make you THINK.
  • books with no love story
  • diverse cultures

the infernal devices, by cassandra clare

if you haven’t read THE INFERNAL DEVICES, what the hell are you doing with your life?! this is one of the best trilogies EVER. prepare to be DESTROYED.

would recommend if you like:

  • books set in victorian era’s london
  • WELL-DONE love triangle
  • shadowhunters
  • characters who love books

six of crows, by leigh bardugo

sixofcrowsbyleighbardugothis book guys, THIS BOOK. it’s freaking GENIUS. everything about it is perfect. the plot is amazing, the characters are amazing, the writing style is amazing. and CROOKED KINGDOM will be out very soon (i’m crying inside because i still can’t get my copy of it) so GO READ THE BOOK.

would (HIGHLY) recommend if you like:

  • high fantasy
  • the grisha world
  • diverse characters

a court of thorns and roses, by sarah j. maas

16096824i still have to read A COURT OF MIST AND FURY, but i read A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES last year (2015), and it was wonderful. slow-paced, yes, but wonderful. and apparently, A COURT OF MIST AND FURY is better? why haven’t i read it yet?! the world may never know.

would recommend if you like:

  • high-fantasy
  • vague Beauty & The Beast retellings
  • Sarah J. Maas
  • fae and faeries

have you read any of these books? do you spot any favorites? also, do you have any more book recommendation?

  1. Well I did just recently pick up The Infernal Devices box set so yay for that! I almost picked up the Raven Boys yesterday, but put it back. I will have to sooner or later. I was very hesitant to grab The Infernal Devices because I am not a fan of triangles, but the reviews have been so great. I love the way you have the recommendations set up 🙂


  2. The Raven Cycle is the perfect read for fall – it’s kinda creepy, exciting and so intriguing! Maybe it’s just me, but I did have goosebumps reading parts of it. Six of Crows, too, is absolutely amazing and reading it now would be perfect because the second book is out SO SOON!!! Glad to see ACOTAR on this list too!


  3. THE RAVEN CYCLE is definitely perfect for fall; it has the perfect amount of gloom, creepyness, and mystery. INFERNAL DEVICES IS MY FAVORITE TRILOGY EVER *howls to the moon* ahem. But I certainly agree that it’s perfect for fall. It has darker atmosphere compared to CC other books. A FIERCE AND SUBTLE POISON was my most anticipated release for 2016, but somehow I haven’t read it yet. I really need to get to it soon! Amazing recs Maha!


  4. Oooh, thank you so much for all of these recommendations! I loved Six of Crows and A Court of Mist and Fury but haven’t read any of the other books you’ve mentioned. I’m definitely going to have to give them a try though. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! ❤


  5. Six of Crowsssss….. I really feel like I should read this book, but at the same time, I’m so intimidated by it. I am not a fan of high fantasy and I’ve never read The Grisha Trilogy. This is such a hyped novel I am afraid that I’ll be the lonely sheep that didn’t love it as much as everyone else. I should probably give it a chance already, though, haha.
