25+ Cozy Autumn Books to cuddle up with this fall. Favorite books to cozy up to as the leaves change colors and the weather gets colder. Come pick a new book for Autumn!
My favorite reading season is Autumn. There's something about the shorter days and cooler weather that lends itself to a slower pace and more time to pick up a book.
Depending on the day and the weather, I alternate between wanting a Spooky Book or a Cozy Autumn Book. If you're looking for thrills and chills, try this list of my favorite Spooky Halloween Books for Adults. But if you want something cozy to cuddle up with, you're in the right place.
What is a Cozy Autumn Book?
What feels "cozy" is entirely subjective, but when it comes to a cozy fall book, here's what I gravitate towards in September, October, and November:
- Atmospheric writing
- Academic Settings (I love a good boarding school novel)
- Sweeping Family Sagas
- Indulgent Classics
- Thoughtful, reflective writing
- Heartwarming endings
- A hint of Magic / Magical Realism
- Stories that connect with nature and the changing Autumn season
Here are 25 + books that check one or more of these boxes and have all the cozy fall vibes! Light a candle, get a cup of hot cider, and enjoy one of these Cozy Autumn Books this month.
