This post was originally published in September 2020. It has been revised and republished to reflect an updated list of cozy books to read this fall.
During the autumn season, I feel the intense desire to curl up with cozy books nearly every day.
There’s something about blustery afternoons, chilly rain showers, and the rapid cool-down that makes me want to dive into old favorites. I often find myself re-reading and I thoroughly enjoy a “comfort read” (you know, those books that feel like a giant hug). The books and series I’m sharing in this post are the epitome of comfort.
I’m not one for scary stories – even during spooky season – so rather than picking out truly terrifying reads, I went with cozy options and a couple of fantasy books that are sure to indulge that need for an adventure.

Here are the standalone books and series that I love to read (and read again) during the fall.
