Top Ten Tuesday #284


Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good week since I last did one of these, mine was pretty quiet really. I’m quite worried about the potential for more national restrictions here in the UK, I really struggled with the first lockdown, especially not being able to see my friends for so long, so I’m really hoping we don’t go back there!

Anyway, as it’s Tuesday, I have another Top Ten Tuesday for you all, courtesy of Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking Book Covers With Autumn Colours/Vibes. Usually Autumn is my favourite season, but it’s been pretty wet here so far! Still I do love the colours of Autumn and I especially love being able to break out my cosy coats. Anyway, here we go, some lovely Autumnal covers for you:

  1. 18686377

Burn by Julianna Baggott

The final book in this lesser known dystopian trilogy certainly has a real autumnal feel, with the brown and orange cover, it resembles autumn leaves! I really recommend this series, it’s basically the world after a nuclear apocalypse where some survivors are left with these awful “fusings” where they end up fused to some object that they were holding at the time. But some of the people, those known as “Pure” were sheltered inside the Dome and saved from the worst of the apocalypse. It’s a very different take on a dystopian world than a lot of other YA dystopia so if you’re looking for something that’s not an exact replica of The Hunger Games/Divergent etc, look no further.

The King of Crows (The Diviners #4) by Libba Bray

I mean this entire series basically screams Autumn, and it’s set mostly in Autumn/Winter-time (I think the first book does start in the summer), with the ghosts and the creepy vibes, it’s a book series that pretty much demands to be read as the days get colder and shorter. But this final book in the series definitely has the most autumnal looking cover, with the orange background!

3. 40590407. sy475

Romanov-Nadine Brandes

I mean there could be an argument for this book looking kind of Christmassy with the illustrations, but I think it fits the autumn vibes just as well with the red and gold colouring.Β 

4. 33854386. sy475

Windwitch-Susan Dennard

With the autumn leaves and the forest as well as the browns and golds on the cover, this cover definitely screams Autumn! I could have gone for either of the book’s covers for this one, but I thought that this one looked slightly more autumnal.

5. 35406534. sy475

Hero At The Fall-Alwyn Hamilton

With it’s burnt orange/red cover, I definitely think the final book in Alwyn Hamilton’s trilogy leans into the autumnal colours, even if it is set in a desert!

6. 30969741. sy475

An Enchantment of Ravens-Margaret Rogerson

I mean everything about this book’s cover screams Autumn, which fits really well with the book as Rook is the Autumn prince. The browns, the slightly orangey/pinky/golds in the cover, all fit really well with that Autumn vibe. I wasn’t a massive fan of the book, but I have to admit, the cover is glorious.

7. 40512862. sy475

City of Ghosts-Victoria Schwab

Honestly, I think Victoria’s colour palette is basically just very autumnal, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of her books and thought, yup, this looks super summery! Quite ironic really, as this book series is actually set during summer. Still, I think the deep red and the black, as well as just the general eerie vibe of the cover all gives off a very autumnal feel.

8. 44074162. sy475

Call Down The Hawk-Maggie Stiefvater

Maggie Stiefvater is another one of those authors who I generally feel just writes very Autumnal books! Anyway, the colours on this one also feel very autumnal, with the browns and the orange of the fire in the back as well as the way the hawk’s wings merge into the trees. I know the actual background is kind of pinky, which isn’t usually an autumnal colour but the way it combines with the rest of the cover definitely screams Autumn to me.


42190061. sy475

The Devouring Gray-Christine Lynn Herman

I have to admit, I do prefer the US cover for this one, but I definitely think the UK one does get the Autumnal vibes, with the dark, misty tree lined background giving off the air of a cold autumn night!

10. The Language of Thorns-Leigh Bardugo


Leigh Bardugo is another of those authors who definitely leans hard into the autumnal vibes (apparently a lot of my favourite authors are!), and this cover I think really exemplifies that, the gold lettering along with the thorn illustrations definitely give off a real autumnal feel for me.

So there we go, those are some Book Covers With Autumn Colours/Vibes for you. Did we share any covers this week? What books did you choose for you lists? Let me know in the comments!

I’ll be back next week with another Top Ten Tuesday, this time talking Super Long Book Titles which should hopefully be a fun one.

      All the books in that trilogy have really striking covers!

  2. stephpaigesofbooks 06/10/2020 / 3:57 pm

    I really want to read the Leigh Bardugo book and The Enchantment of Ravens. I really enjoyed Romanov. Here is my post-

  3. evelynreads1 06/10/2020 / 4:08 pm

    Great list! Love them together!

    My post!

  4. Leah's Books 06/10/2020 / 4:14 pm

    Great list. I thought of putting Romanov on mine but it made me think of winter too much!

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:48 pm

      Thanks! It definitely could fit wintery covers as well, I just thought the reds and golds fit quite well with the autumn colours.

      • Leah's Books 08/10/2020 / 4:33 pm

        It’s one of those that absolutely fits in both categories! And the cover is just flat out gorgeous.

  5. lindseyhabets 06/10/2020 / 5:42 pm

    So many great choices! And I’ve been wanting to read the Diviners series for so long, so this autumn does seem like the perfect timing πŸ™‚

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:47 pm

      Thank you! Ah it’s such a good series, hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

  6. amugofbooks 06/10/2020 / 7:50 pm

    I’m in love with The King of Crows cover!!

  7. vee_bookish 06/10/2020 / 9:40 pm

    Love that cover of Romanov! Sending positive vibes also from the UK, this country is a mess and I have no idea what it actually happening, lockdown wise. The government seems confused as best.

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:45 pm

      It’s beautiful! Ugh, I know, it really sucks, and no one seems to be able to work out a decent middle ground between being completely locked down and letting the virus run wild.

  8. susanblogginboutbooks 06/10/2020 / 9:57 pm

    Hopefully all your rain will result in lots of lovely Fall color. We haven’t had rain in forever and we really, really need it here in the desert. Send us some, won’t you?

    Great choices on book covers. I especially like the one for THE DEVOURING GRAY. It’s different and eye-catching.

    Happy TTT!


    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:41 pm

      If I could, I definitely would! Thank you! The colours for that one are definitely very striking, my copy has bright pink stained pages as well!

  9. I can’t get over the cover for The King of Crows. It’s just so atmospheric and eerie but also warm. Love The Devouring Gray, too, which has been on my TBR pile for way too long.

  10. anovelglimpse 06/10/2020 / 10:37 pm

    These all make me think of autumn, especially the reddish-orange ones.

  11. nbiblioholic 06/10/2020 / 11:07 pm

    Such great choices! Happy TTT!

  12. shanaqui 06/10/2020 / 11:36 pm

    Ahh, some lovely covers there! Good list. πŸ˜€

  13. Cheryl Malandrinos 07/10/2020 / 1:19 am

    Wow! Nice list. Can’t say I’ve read these, but they make me think of fall for sure. Love the cover for The King of Crows.

    Thanks for visiting my blog today.

  14. Leslie 07/10/2020 / 1:21 am

    Wow, you have some really great covers here!! Great job πŸ™‚

  15. pagesandtea 07/10/2020 / 7:58 am

    I love the cover for The King of Crows. That’s a series I really need to get back to as I enjoyed the first couple of books.

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:13 pm

      Me too! I hope you enjoy the rest of the series πŸ™‚

  16. Nicole 07/10/2020 / 12:22 pm

    I love the cover for The Language of Thorns! Great picks πŸ˜€

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:12 pm

      Thank you! The Language of Thorns is honestly one of my favourite covers ever, it’s such a beautiful book, and the illustrations inside are just as lovely.

  17. Dedra @ A Book Wanderer 07/10/2020 / 4:16 pm

    Yes! All of Stiefvater’s books make great autumnal reads. Even the wolves one. πŸ˜‰

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:10 pm

      Definitely! I’ve not actually read the wolves one….

      • Dedra @ A Book Wanderer 12/10/2020 / 2:07 pm

        It wasn’t m favorite of hers, but still written so very well.

  18. thebookishlibra 08/10/2020 / 1:34 am

    Great selection of covers. I really love the Stiefvater one.

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 3:09 pm

      Thanks! She always gets the most gorgeous covers πŸ™‚

  19. AB_likes_books 08/10/2020 / 2:49 am

    SO many good books on this list! Great Autumn vibes. I really want to read the Truthwitch series and City of Ghosts.

  20. dinipandareads 08/10/2020 / 3:52 am

    All of these covers definitely scream autumn to me! I’ve never seen that cover of Wind Witch before but I love it 😍 Great picks!

    • iloveheartlandx 08/10/2020 / 2:32 pm

      Thanks! I think it was the original UK hardback, but I’m not sure?

  21. Melissa @ Always, Lissa 09/10/2020 / 1:52 am

    I actually almost added Romanov to my list as well! I love your choices. The King of Crows is definitely autumn-y!

  22. Rissi 10/10/2020 / 3:43 am

    SO many are ideally suited for this. Love that you put ‘Ravens’ and “Romanov” on the list. I still need to read the former, and have read the latter. Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland; hope the rest of your autumn season is great. πŸ™‚

  23. Brooke Lorren (@Brookelorren) 10/10/2020 / 10:26 pm

    These are all nice. I think I like Burn the most, for fall. I still need to read Romanov. It was one of those books I didn’t get approved for an ARC for, ended up buying it on sale, and still haven’t gotten around to reading.

    • iloveheartlandx 11/10/2020 / 3:38 pm

      Thanks! Yes, it does have that perfect autumn leaf colour. I hope you enjoy it when you finally get to it πŸ™‚
