Rad Reads

5 books that channel the ultimate autumn vibes

Our fall fantasy? Curling up on the couch with a good book while listening to a fresh playlist, sipping hot cider and munching on a donut. We adore the cozy autumn aesthetic, so what better way to cultivate the vibe than by reading books that go with the szn? Whether you're not super into reading (yet!) or you're a total bookworm, here are five rad reads that you need to check out ASAP.

1. Wuthering Heights


Wuthering Heights is an nineteenth-century classic that radiates terrifying and gothic haunted house vibes. Just picture reading this one by evening candle light with a steaming cup of chai.

2. The October Country 


Does a collection of 19 short stories from the early '50s sound like your fall vibe? If so, you *need* to check out Ray Bradbury's collection of chilling classics that'll be sure to make you feel like it's Halloween whenever you read them.

3. November 9


A surprising love story set on the same autumn date (November 9) over the course of five years? Sign us up. This masterpiece written by Colleen Hoover will give you chills. 

4. The Dead Romantics 


If you're a fan of romance (and ghosts), you may need to check this one out. This unique and breathtaking book is swoon-wothy yet kind of terrifying at the same time.

5. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue


Although the book itself is set throughout all seasons, it's perfect to cozy up with in chilly weather. Think: Halloween-esque, with many dreamy (and some kinda creepy) fall scenes.
