I love autumn. I think it’s the most wonderful time of year, where cozy and spooky intertwine and people seem intrinsically happier than in the summer months. I love a lot about this season, like the scary movies, the decorations, and the pumpkin spice, but I really love reading outside in the nicer weather or curled up inside with a cup of something warm, books that give off an immediate fall feeling. Some of these books I’ve read before, maybe a few times in fact, but others are ones I’m planning on reading this fall season. I really love sharing this and talking about books in this sense, especially regarding the season that is so close to my heart.
I think it’s quite essential to read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte at this time. The eerie unknown of who’s in Mr. Rochester’s attic, and Mr. Rochester himself quite frankly, is perfect for the fall. Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books of all time, so it is a lot of fun to go back and read it, especially with the thought of Halloween on the mind. The Bronte sisters’ novels are really great for this time of year, as Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is another classic that is terrifying and perfect for Halloween. Our main character is a ghost, essentially, and I just think that’s absolutely the coolest thing. Heathcliff himself is also a scary gothic figure I would not want to run into in a dark alley, much like Mr. Rochester.
