Fall lovers and book readers alike gather round. The following is a list of some of the best books to read this Fall season if you want a little spook, a little fiction and a lot of mystery.

If We Were Villains by M.L Rio: This is the quintessential book for fall weather, it features a class of aspiring Shakespearean actors involved in a mystery beyond their understanding. This dark academia inspired novel will be the perfect companion on a chilly fall day.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde: Thought of as one of the most important works of literature, this classic will not only broaden your horizon on important philosophical topics but will also suit the season’s mood. It is a short novel but with impactful ideas that can still be applied to the 21st century.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides: What is better on a fall day than a cliff-hanging mystery, that is exactly what one would expect when choosing to read The Silent Patient. This story features not only a mystery that will have you questioning every single page you turn but also a complicated multi-layered female character that will truly stay on your mind for a very long time.

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier: This book being one of my personal favorites has a multitude of themes that many will enjoy. With it not only being a classic gothic of the 20th century but also a book that one will never forget. Set in the countryside of England it follows the adventures of a young woman recently married to a rich aristocrat with dark secrets.

The Secret History by Donna Tartt: Considered by many as the first great classic in the genre of dark academia, this book follows the mysteries surrounding a small liberal arts college in New England and its ancient Greek-obsessed, classics students.
