Autumn reads // 2016

The Christmas tree is up, I’m listening to Xmas songs on repeat and I’ve already watched Home Alone twice. But I also realised I still hadn’t done my autumn reads for this year yet. So without further ado, here are all the books I read from Sept-Nov:

Cogheart by Peter Bunzl // One of my favourite books I read this year. A brilliant, sparkingly MG debut. Check out my review here.


My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows // LOL-funny historical fan fiction. Review here.

The Great Chocoplot by Chris Callaghan // Fabulous MG book about the chocolate apocalypse. Check out my Q&A with the author here.

Northern Lights by Philip Pullman // I decided to revisit to one of my all time favourite novels and it was just as magical.

Dear Fatty by Dawn French // Dawn French is my hero. And she’s hilarious. And this book is gold.

A Proposal to Die For by Vivian Conroy // A gorgeous mystery set in 1920’s London! My review is here.

The Case of the Girl in Grey (The Wollstonecraft Detective Agency, #2) by Jordan Stratford // Excellent follow up in this MG mystery series. Can’t wait to read more.

The Peculiar Haunting of Thelma Bee by Erin Petti // Outstandingly creepy MG debut.


George V’s Children by John Van der Kiste // History books because I’m a nerd.

Georgian London: Into the Streets by Lucy Inglis // And again.

March, Women, March by Lucinda Hawksley // And one more.


Worthy of Song and Story (Stian the Viking, #1) by Neal Chase // Fascinating take on viking mythology. Review here.

The Adventurer’s Guide to Successful Escapes by Wade Albert White // Another fabulous MG debut (what is it with 2016 and MG debuts?). This is an inventive, exciting and wholly original adventure.


Mistletoe and Murder (Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries, #5) by Robin Stevens // I’m going to say it: Robin Stevens is a genius. This festive murder mystery might be the best book in this series so far

Sex and Suffrage in Britain 1860-1914 by Susan Kingsley Kent // More history book reading!

I read a bit of a mixture of books this autumn! History was definitely on the agenda, mainly because I started MA in History in September. I also read more amazing MG books– MG has had a stellar 2016.

Right, I’m off to read a book and have an evening hot chocolate. Have a great day, friends <3.

  1. Great assortment of books. I’ve read a couple but I really need to read the others, especially in MG. You’re a great source of book recommendations!
