This week we are looking at fall or autumn themed covers. Just perfect for October! This one seemed kind of challenging, I mean how many of these would I find, but in the end not too bad.   


The Wood
Looks like fall! Just don't, you know, mind the blood.  

Missing

Leaves!!

Drums of Autumn (Outlander, #4)

This seems like kind of a quintessential autumn book? I haven't read 'em though. 

Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #3)

This looks like autumn with the color, and I don't know, just looks like fall to me? 

A Friend of Silence (Roger and Bess Mystery #1)

One of my favorites- so colorful. And totally looks like leaves on the wet ground. 

A Killer Crop (Orchard, #4)

Haven't read it but love the festive, autumnal look. 

In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1)


Ooh kind of a spooky cover? I like the bare branches

Pines (Wayward Pines, #1)

This just looks autumn-y to me. 

And a Woodstock in a Birch Tree

No leafage= fall!!! 

Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 (Mouse Guard, #1)

  1. That first one is actually doubly perfect since it's got the changing leaf, and it's got blood for Halloween! Forever has such a pretty cover.

  2. I LOVE bare branches like on the IN THE WOODS cover!! It's so creepy! Also, THE WOOD totally has the fall feels-- although I was super surprised to find out that it was a fantasy book. It looks like a mystery/thriller for sure!! Great list!

    1. I do too, especially this time of year when it's all spooky out lol with the bare trees. And also on covers! The Wood might be my favorite, but In the Woods is fabulous too.

    1. I agree, that's an amazing cover!!

  9. Although not as autumnal in visuals as the others included, Into The Woods is the one that gives me most autumnal vibes because of the darker reads many of us tend to gravitate towards this time of year. Great list!

    1. I agree. There's something about that one, just a creepy great cover! And I love reading darker books this time of year.

  10. Great list. I especially like the Peanuts book! Tana French is perfect. Now if I can only sit down and read it. It's been on my TBR for a long time now.

  13. I really need to grab Mouse Guard. If I had done a traditional theme - I went more with Halloween/scary reads, The Wood and Missing would have definitely made my list. They are PERFECT autumn covers!

    1. I need to read Mouse Guard too, I keep thinking I will and I never have, And I think so too- love both of those!

  14. I love the Snoopy cover! A Killer Crop screamed fall to me too and The Wood is awesome! I hadn't heard of that one but now I want to know more about it just based off the cover! Great list!

    1. I have The Wood but it didn't grab me, so it's kind of on hold. Love the cover though! And I couldn't resist with the Snoopy cover!

  16. In the Woods was such a good book, even if the ending made me angry! :D Love Kelley Armstrong, too. I've recently gotten into cozy mysteries so I'm going to have to check out A Killer Crop now!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

    1. I still need to read it. And I'm a new convert to Armstrong, after reading a few of her books.

      I ead an occasional cozy and A Killer Crop looks fun!

  17. Great list! I keep meaning to watch Outlander but I feel like I can't until I've read the books - if only they weren't all so huge!

  27. Oooh, OBSESSED with the cover for The Wood. What a great start to a fantastic list!

  28. You did much better with this topic than I did. At first I wanted to do leaves but could only think of 2 covers, so I ended up just going with fall colors.

    1. I actually liked your list! I love the fall colors, reds and oranges.

  30. Missing and 'Silence' are both great features for today. Though I've not read any of these, I have heard of the former... and I just love all the fall vibes these covers are sporting!! :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg.

    1. Missing had a autumn vibe, as I recall, although I don't remember if it was actually set in fall.

      Delete
  31. I love the changing colors of leaves around this time of the year, and you've chosen a lot of covers that show that. The Wood actually landed on my wishlist earlier this year because the cover caught my eye!

  32. This is quite a fun prompt! The first two were two that I thought of for sure. The Wood has an all-around fall feel to it, too. I like A Friend of Silence! Most autumn colors are so... blah, but not that one! Now i kind of want to do this prompt on some other Tuesday when I actually can. These are great choices!

    1. I thought so! I think The Wood is fabulous, looks like fall but blood??? A A Friend of Silence just totally looks autumnal!

  33. Is it weird that I like the cover of The Wood ?

  34. In the Woods has a nice cover and I like the colour of the Blake Crouch book. I like Killer crop too.

  35. Wow, these are all so very 'fall' to me! The Wood and A Killer Crop really stand out. You have some great choices for this TTT!

  37. Nice picks, Greg! I suggested Missing to another blogger for this same feature, so you see how I particularly like that cover, hehe

    ReplyDelete
  38. I have to say, I really love the style of those cozy mystery covers. A Killer Crop looks really good.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The Woods and Forever are both perfect fall covers!! As is Into the Woods as well!!

  40. I like the first one the best. I immediately thought Oct with that cover.

  43. I love that cover for A Killer Crop, but it does not look like a murder mystery to me! Must be a very cozy murder. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is a great list and I can't believe I forgot about Forever. I love seeing Snoopy and Woodstock on your list!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Did you know they are making The Mouse Guard into an animated movie? I think it looks just like that cover illustration. You found a lot of covers with fall leaves!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love The Wood cover. That is really awesome! I also love the Cozy covers. They always look so inviting! Great picks for fall, Greg! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Now I want to check out The Wood! man that cover is awesome! lol

  48. A Killer Crop looks so good! Love those cozy covers :)

  49. Ooh I love the theme for this TTT! I bet it was kind of hard though. If the topic had been winter it would've been a piece of cake. It seems like so many books go from all things summer to immediately winter, not many set during the fall. I love the A Friend of Silence one!! That's my favorite one too! Sadly here the leaves aren't changing. It's still in the upper 80s. One of my trees is starting to bloom again! Everything is so confused!
