Autumn Books

The nights are drawing in, the leaves are falling from the trees, and there’s a cold chill in the air. Autumn is the perfect season to stay inside with a book, and here at Books2Door, we have an excellent selection for you to choose from. We have something for everybody, from quick reads to books to get lost in. The last few months of the year are the perfect time to grab a blanket, a mug of your favourite hot drink and get stuck in your new favourite book. What could be better than that? 

There are so many books to get you into the autumn mood. How about a chilly mystery fiction read from Elly Griffiths? Or perhaps a visit to A Magical World with Enid Blyton? What better time than when the season is turning to climb The Faraway Tree? All these books and more are waiting for you as the colder weather emerges. 

Autumn is also a season filled with wonderful holidays and nostalgic traditions. We all know the new school year starts in September. If you want a break from altering uniforms and stationery shopping, check out our selection of great back-to-school books that fit perfectly in those crammed backpacks. 

October is Black History Month in the UK, which was established to spotlight and remember the history of the African diaspora. We love highlighting our extensive and diverse range of books for a multicultural world, and you can browse our collection celebrating BAME writers here

Autumn also brings us Diwali, a festival of lights. For Hindus, Jains and Sikhs, as well as some Buddhists, it’s a celebration of good defeating evil and light defeating darkness. It takes place over five days in the Hindu month of Kartika, which overlaps with October and November. We offer a range of Diwali books, including a fantastic Rangoli colouring book.

On October 31st, it’s Halloween! A time for ghosts, monsters and spooky occurrences. We have a wide selection of Samhain stories on offer for you, from the horrifying Darren Shan to exciting adventures with The Worst Witch. For older readers looking for a good fright, beware of the horrifying Goosebumps series, or to really ramp up the scares, check out our full collection of Stephen King Books here. Look at our full Halloween collection here, but don’t look under the bed, or you’ll be in for a fright!

November 11th is Remembrance Day, where we memorialise the sacrifices made by the members of the armed forces that have fallen in the line of duty. If you’d like to learn more about them, we have many books available about both World Wars, alongside other conflicts, which we’ve compiled in a collection.

Our fantastic range has a little bit of something for everyone, no matter what your interest is. We have a wide variety of books that are guaranteed to keep you and your kids entertained for hours this autumn. Which books are going to define your autumn?
