  3. These are not the books I would have looked at first for autumn covers, but you are absolutely right - these are some lovely autumn covers.

  4. Not only a list of beautiful autumnal colors, but a list of good books.

  5. These are pretty covers! I especially like the cover for Upstream. here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

  6. Ishmael was such a good book, too. Have you read the sequel?

    My post.

  7. That To Kill A Mockingbird cover definitely looks very autumnal. The one we had for school was quite boring, it was just a black cover with a small illustration of a mockingbird on it.

  8. The Neverending Story has such a pretty cover!

  12. Love your selections for this week! That To Kill a Mockingbird perfectly fits the season for me. It immediately makes me start thinking of the Halloween section.

  13. Oooh! I love these covers, especially to Kill a Mockingbird! Great list!

  15. I forgot about Fairest! It definitely gives me fall vibes. Great choices!

  16. 1st and 5th!! Definitely love the autumn colors and feels you shared here, Anne!

  17. I've read three of these! Beautiful covers and great choices!

  18. All of these have a great color scheme to go with the season - and "Fairest" in particular makes me think of this season! Thanks so much for stopping by Finding Wonderland.

  19. Ooh, I want to jump right into the cover of Upstream. Perfect for fall.

    And now I kind of want window clings in the style of the images on The Travelling Cat Chronicles, haha.
