Top Five Favorite Autumm Reads!

Hello bookies! Today I will be posting about my favorite Autumn recommendations! Now these are going to be a bunch of contemps because these are just some books that you can snuggle down with the whole day!

1. Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. This is a contemp (contemporary) and it is about this girl named Anna (of course). Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, this is why she is more than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris ( insert sarcasm here)--until she meets √Čtienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, √Čtienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend.... oops? But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss? Now you have to get under the covers and read to find out! I loved this book, it was so cute and so well written. ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ stars! 

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Contemp! Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan... But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving them. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere, everything was great for them. Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from the fandom, but Cath can’t let go. It means too much. She doesn’t want to. Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words... And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone. For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind? I related to this book so much. I was nodding my head through the entire thing. I loved Cath's character development in this book. Rainbow Rowell sure can write a story and I just love her stories, her characters, her writing style, all of it! ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ stars!

3. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. We just have amazing contemps here! Two misfits. One extraordinary love. Eleanor has red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor. Park... well, he knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park. Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. I loved this story. The love was just so unique and real and wonderful to see how it became and grew and this story was so beautiful. Rainbow can really capture love in a real and beautiful way that is so much fun and heart warming to read about. She can capture the feeling and sometimes I feel like she actually goes into the human mind (I know this sounds creepy but keep reading, get's better!) and can capture that feeling of love and being a teenager. I loved this book so so so much and I highly recommend it. ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ stars!

4. Paper Towns by John Green. Contemp. What else in new? Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs into his life—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they're for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew... This book was so confusing but so cool and mysterious and omg this book! If you read TFIOS then you are going to love this! ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 1/2 stars! 

5. You can guess this. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten. Now when you are snuggling down in your bed/couch or whatever, make sure you have tissues. Okay? Okay. BRB crying... ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆  stars!

So those were my top five favorite Autumn recommendations! Thanks for all the views! Love you all!
