Autumn is all about cosy evening in, reading a good book. And that exactly what I’m going to do. Here 4 autumn books that need to be on your reading list.
I love having Friday evening to myself, that when I can have my ‘reading evening’. This is due to the fact that when Richard is out and I usually have the place to myself. Pure Bliss I tell you. There’s nothing I like more than cosy up on the sofa with a blanket wrapped round you while reading a book. It even better when I can hear heavy rain outside.
What kind of book do I read? The kind that gripped you on the first page, where there is murder and mystery at every corner. The kind where it can leave a chill running down your spine. At this time of year, I look for the dark mysterious books, the ghost story that will scary you.
As I said earlier this week, I’m writing a book; so I need to do some reading to properly get me in the mood. Help me formula my ideas and structure.
I have selected 4 autumn books that need to be on your reading list. Not to help you write a book, like me. But ones that will make you want to create cosy evening reading a book. Books that transport you to another world, where murder and mystery at every corner is real.
My advice is, throw out your husband and your cat; as you want to be doing some serious reading this autumn.
Here are 4 autumn books that need to be on your reading list:
I Know My Name Written by C. L. Taylor
Komméno Island, Greece: I don’t know where I am, who I am. Help me.

Potter’s Lane, Twickenham, London: Eloïse Shelley is officially missing.
Lochlan’s wife has vanished into thin air, leaving their toddler and twelve-week-old baby alone. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of foul play. Every clue the police turn up means someone has told a lie…
Does a husband ever truly know his wife? Or a wife knows her husband? Why is Eloïse missing? Why did she forget? The truth is found in these pages…
When I’m Gone: A Novel
Luke Richardson has returned home after burying Natalie, his beloved wife of sixteen years, ready to face the hard job of raising their three children alone. But there’s something he’s not prepared for—a blue envelope with his name scrawled across the front in Natalie’s handwriting, waiting for him on the floor of their suburban Michigan home.
The letter inside, written on the first day of Natalie’s cancer treatment a year ago, turns out to be the first of many. Luke is convinced they’re genuine, but who is delivering them? As his obsession with the letters grows, Luke uncovers long-buried secrets that make him question everything he knew about his wife and their family. But the revelations also point the way toward a future where love goes on—in written words, in memories, and in the promises it’s never too late to keep.
The Mist in The Mirror written by Susan Hill
One dark and rainy night, Sir James Monmouth returns to London after years spent travelling alone.
Intent on uncovering the secrets of his childhood hero, the mysterious Conrad Vane, he begins to investigate Vane’s life, but he finds himself warned off at every turn.
Before long he realises he is being followed too. A pale, thin boy is haunting his every step but every time he tries to confront the boy he disappears. And what of the chilling scream and desperate sobbing only he can hear?
His quest leads him eventually to the old lady of Kittiscar Hall, where he discovers something far more terrible at work than he could ever have imagined.
Spirit Legacy (The Gateway Trilogy Book 1)
“The Gateway is open…”
These cryptic words wake college student Jess Ballard from a terrifying dream into an even more terrifying reality.
Jess’ life has never been what anyone would call easy; doing damage control in the wake of your nomadic, alcoholic mother doesn’t exactly make for a storybook childhood. But now her world has fallen apart just when it should be coming together: her mother gone—dead under mysterious circumstances; her life uprooted to stay with estranged relatives she’s never met; and there’s something odd about some of the people she’s been meeting at school:
Aided by Tia, her neurotic roommate, and Dr. David Pierce, a ghost-hunting professor, Jess must unravel the mystery behind her hauntings. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more danger shadows her every move. An ancient secret, long-buried, is about to claw its way to the surface, and nothing can prepare Jess for one terrifying truth…her encounters with the world of the dead are only just beginning.
Spirit Legacy is the first of three thrilling novels in “The Gateway Trilogy” by E.E. Holmes.
Let me know if any of these will be on your reading list this Autumn.
