To Be Read : 5 Fall Reads about Family - Top Ten Tuesday

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This week's prompt was to find Books That Give Off Autumn Vibes. And oof, because living in Texas, "fall/autumn vibes" just isn't as much of a thing for me! And I'm kind of salty about it. Some years the leaves change, some they don't, the temperature is totally all over the place, and it just doesn't have a consistent traditional feeling to it. But regardless of the weather or scenery, family in the fall feels consistent. Gearing up for the holidays means lots of time with family, which can be so different from person to person. So, keep reading, because I've compiled a list of books that I absolutely adore that have strong messages about family, enjoy!

I am definitely not alone in reading this book during the month of October and while I have some critical things to say about "The Silent Patient", one thing it does do very well is striking that - eerie mystery thriller vibe -  that is so sought after in spooky reading months. I am still reeling over here from the ending to this novel - "The Silent Patient" is definitely known for its twists! But the ending of the Silent Patient is also rightfully controversial and I think I might be in the hated it group. Keep reading to find out why!
