Autumn TBR

Happy haunts to you, my friend and welcome to my first ever TBR! As you might know, I fell back in love with reading over the summer and I wanted to make sure that I continue to read as often as possible. So today I'm going to share with you the six spooky-ish books that I'm looking forward to reading this autumn!

My stack of autumn books to read

Mindhunter: Inside the FBI Elite Serial Crime Unit 
by John Douglas & Mark Olshaker

What better time of year to settle down with some true crime than autumn, ay? I actually bought this book back in 2012 while I was at the peak of my Criminal Minds obsession and then just never got around to reading it.

I did attempt to read Mindhunter early last year, while trapped underneath my slumbering newborn but ultimately decided it was a bit too dark of a read under the circumstances. But since I've been putting off watching the Netflix series until I read the book that inspired it, I'm determined to finish it once and for all because these season 2 trailers and promos are making me want to dive straight in.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 
by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany & Jack Thorne

I love everything about the wizarding world so it kills me that I still haven't gotten around to reading (or seeing) the Cursed Child yet! I had the best of intentions of course, I even pre-ordered my copy but life got in the way. Still, there's no time like the present and I am beyond excited to finally find out what Harry Potter has been up to.

Also I truly believe that autumn is the most magical time of the year making it the perfect time to visit the wizarding world!

The Kingdom
by Jess Rothenberg

The real question here is why wouldn't I want to read about a dystopian Disneyland? This book is actually the newest addition to my collection, having discovered it only recently when someone shared it on Instagram but it's going right to the top of my pile because I'm that excited to read it.

The Mist in the Mirror
by Susan Hill

If there's one author in the contemporary gothic genre that guarantees chills, page after page, it's Susan Hill. I've read several of Hill's scary novels and a handful of her short stories and I'm always left wanting more. I'm really looking forward to The Mist in the Mirror because I've been putting off reading it for so long and the plot sounds exhilarating to say the least!

Hocus Pocus & the All-New Sequel
by A.W. Jantha

Who wants to see the return of the Sanderson sisters? This girl right here! I don't know about you but nothing says 'Halloween' to me quite like watching Hocus Pocus. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, it's a Disney live action movie set in Salem about a teenage boy who brings a coven of witches back from the grave... oops!

I've wanted a copy of this book since its release last year and now I have one so I'm very much looking forward to sticking my nose into this one because I am a huge Hocus Pocus fan.

by Jason Segel & Kirsten Miller

Jason Segel is one of my favourite comedy actors so when I stumbled across Nightmares! in a book store a few years back, I snapped up a copy. It's a children's book but I often find that children's literature can be scarier than adult fiction and honestly, it does sound pretty scary.

My aim is to read this one close to Halloween so I'm hoping to squeeze it in between mid and late October but I might have turned into a Bridezilla that close to my wedding so... we shall see!

That's it for my autumn TBR, I'm hoping to do a winter one a little bit later this year so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, what book are you most looking forward to reading this autumn? Drop me a comment below!
