23 Quotes From Novels That Warmly Welcome The Cozy Autumn Season

Alongside the crisp frostiness of winter, Autumn is my other favorite season. Even as a child, I loved going to the park, jumping freely and without a care in the world in the endless piles of earth-tone leaves. When the warmth of Autumn begins to slowly unmask itself, I can’t help but feel happier, more at ease, and of course, eager to pick up a great novel to enjoy the season. To further celebrate the simple, though stunning beauty of the Fall season, here are 23 wonderful quotes (from books, of course)!

1. “October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!”
