Top Ten Tuesday: Falling for Autumn, Vicariously



 

Unlike in beautiful New Hampshire (top photo), where I was vacationing last year around this time, or in the stunning Columbia River Gorge (bottom photo), where I was reared, here in the Phoenix area we don't really have Fall.  Sure, the temperature will retreat back into two-digit range sometime around November, but the leaves don't really change color, there's no briskness in the air, and the homey sight of smoke drifting out of chimneys into a bright Autumn sky is not something you see here in our desert.  I miss real Fall, the kind I adored while growing up in Washington and going to college in Utah.  Since I can't experience it without taking a drive, I'll have to do it vicariously through books (like I do a lot of things).  That's where this week's Top Ten Tuesday topic—Top Ten Book Covers That Give Off Fall Vibes—comes in.  My list is a mix of titles I've read and enjoyed, Fall books I loved as a kid and had fun reading to my own children, and a few that I'm looking forward to reading sometime soon. 

If you want to join in the TTT fun, hop on over to That Artsy Reader Girl for all the details.

Top Ten Book Covers That Give Off Fall Vibes   


Return to Virgin River by Robyn Carr—the newest in a series I enjoy but am behind in reading


Bitter River by Julia KellerMy Review


The Brutal Telling by Louise PennyMy Review


It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown by Charles M. Schulz—Oh, the nostalgia!


A Separate Peace by John Knowles


Harvest Moon by Robyn Carr


Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman, illustrated by S.D. Schindler—one of my kids' favorite seasonal read alouds


Fall Leaves by Loretta Holland, illustrated by Elly MacKay


The Orphan of Cemetery Hill by Hester Fox


Pumpkin Everything by Beth LabonteJana mentioned this sweet romance in her post today and it sounds fun, especially since I love New Hampshire!

There you go, some book covers that really say Autumn to me.  What do you think of my picks?  Which covers say Fall to you?  What is Fall like where you live?  I'd truly love to know.  Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!
