It's an undeniable bookworm fact that certain books are suited for certain weather. Summer has come and gone—and hopefully you've checked a few classics off your summer reading list. Now that there's a chill in the air, it's time to start cozying up with a whole different set of books.
Check out these 5 classic books perfect for cozying up with this fall (in a warm sweater and with a mug of hot tea close at hand, of course!).
1. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
Jane Eyre was the novel the ultimately made Charlotte Brontë's name (and the one she's best known for). This wonderful book has a little bit of everything: romance, intrigue, and a spooky mystery. Add to that a healthy dose of female empowerment way ahead of its time, and Charlotte Brontë's book is the perfect classic fall read.
We love Jane Eyre so much we couldn't resist transforming it into a literary art print! This Jane Eyre wall poster is created using the text from Charlotte Brontë's novel.
2. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë
It might seem we're a tad obsessed around here, but there's just something about those brooding Brontës that makes us think of fall. Wuthering Heights was the first piece of bookish wall art we added to the Proseposters shop, so you can probably tell that it’s one of our favorite classic books. The melancholy tone of Wuthering Heights makes it perfectly suited for rainy fall nights, and the love story is one that will stick with you. It’s also beautifully written and ridiculously quotable.
3. Dracula by Bram Stoker
Is it really autumn if you don’t give Stoker’s famously bone-chilling horror novel a read? Forget Twilight, Stoker is the one who really made vampires both sexy and absolutely terrifying. Snuggle up with Dracula this fall and give yourself a little scare. Maybe it will offer some early inspiration for Halloween!
Have you seen this amazing Dracula wall poster in the Proseposters shop? Created using the words of Stoker's famous book, this art print will make a spooktacular addition to your book nook wall.
4. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
A Moveable Feast is the only non-fiction work on this list, but that doesn’t mean it’s not the perfect autumn read. Hemingway penned this book about life before he became a world-famous writer. A Moveable Feast transports you to Paris in the fall and the heyday of the great writers and artists gathered there. Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald, James Joyce, and many more make guest appearances in Hemingway’s short and sweet memoir.
If you're a fan of Ernest Hemingway's books, you'll love this The Sun Also Rises wall poster! This stunning literary art print is created using the entire text of Hemingway's novel.
5. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Northanger Abbey is often less appreciated than Austen novels like Pride and Prejudice. Yet, (I think) it's one of her most comically delightful works. Austen wrote Northanger Abbey around the time that gothic novels were at peak popularity, hence many literary critics consider it to be a gothic parody. What makes it so fun is its protagonist, Catherine, who loves gothic literature but can't seem to quite separate fiction from reality. What bookworm hasn't been there, right?
Guess what? We're expanding our Jane Austen wall art collection! Persuasion will be joining our Pride and Prejudice literary poster in the shop very soon.
