Finally Fall Book Tag

I guess it technically still fall?? The Christmas tree in the park near me begs otherwise, but in my mind it is still in fact fall. It will continue to be fall until December, no matter what those lights tell me.

I am super excited to be doing my first ever tag! Thank you to the lovely Cherelle @ Cherelle The Bibliophile and Riddhi @ Whispering Stories for tagging me!

IN FALL, THE AIR IS CRISP AND CLEAR: NAME A BOOK WITH A VIVID SETTING

I started Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust a few days ago and I can really picture the world in my mind. I can’t wait to keep reading and explore this story and world some more.

NATURE IS BEAUTIFUL… BUT ALSO DYING: NAME A BOOK THAT IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, BUT ALSO DEALS WITH A HEAVY TOPIC LIKE LOSS OR GRIEF.

What Unbreakable Looks Like by Kate McLaughlin is a heart wrenching story about human trafficking. I could not put this down. A must read.

FALL IS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON: SHARE A NON-FICTION BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.

Um… I can’t really say that I’m a big non-fiction reader. The last time I have read non-fiction was a biography for a book project from 3rd grade-ish. So yeah, it’s been a little while.

I did read a memoir for school, so I’m going to count that. I read In My Hands by Irene Gut Opdyke and Jennifer Armstrong and it was AMAZING.

IN ORDER TO KEEP WARM, IT’S GOOD TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH THE PEOPLE WE LOVE: NAME A FICTIONAL FAMILY/HOUSEHOLD/FRIEND-GROUP THAT YOU’D LIKE TO BE PART OF.

I want to join the Truly Devious crew.

  1. Boarding school with secret passages.
  2. Snark, snark, and more snark
  3. Solving mysteries sounds pretty cool
  4. Extreme introvert energy that I feel on a spiritual level. Exhibit A:
    • “Snow makes it socially acceptable to stay in.” 

THE COLOURFUL LEAVES ARE PILING UP ON THE GROUND: SHOW US A PILE OF FALL COLOURED SPINES!

When I think fall colors black and blue are NOT what jump out to me. However, my stash of yellow and orange books is nonexistent. So, I am officially declaring blue and black as fall colors. I mean, there is a pumpkin in the picture, so it must be fall-ish.

PICTURED:

  • After the Fire by Will Hill
  • We Regret to Inform You by Ariel Kaplan
  • Rebel Bully Geek Pariah by Erin Jade Lange
  • Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka
  • To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
  • Devil in Ohio by Daria Polatin
  • Summer Bird Blue by Akemi Dawn Bowman
  • Trell by Dick Lehr

FALL IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR SOME STORYTELLING BY THE FIRESIDE: SHARE A BOOK WHEREIN SOMEONE IS TELLING A STORY.

All of the Percy Jackson books! I began rereading earlier this month. I have reread the series so many times and it will never grow old. The narration never fails to make me laugh.

THE NIGHTS ARE GETTING DARKER: SHARE A DARK, CREEPY READ.

Sadie by Courtney Summers is one of my favorite thrillers ever. It is a shocking and brutal read that will give you the creeps, especially if you are reading it in dark.

THE DAYS ARE GETTING COLDER: NAME A SHORT, HEARTWARMING READ THAT COULD WARM UP SOMEBODY’S COLD AND RAINY DAY.

On those dreary days my go to in a nice contemporary romance. And what better recommendation than my favorite contemporary romance of all time? Tweet Cute by Emma Lord.

There is Twitter feud, baked goods, and oh so much sass. A perfectly heartwarming read for those chilly days.

Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.

The Study In Charlotte series is first in line of my reread list. I think I’m going to have a pretty busy month, so taking it slow with some audiobooks might be the way to go.

Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!

Not really an accessory, but reading with a blanket is the move. Something about cocooning thyself in a blanket and reading is just— *trails off because there is no words to explain the perfection of it*

Alrighty, I’m tagging a few amazing bloggers who may be interested. No pressure to do it. I look forward to seeing your posts!

    1. No problem! Hope you have fun with it!!
      I had never heard of Sadie until I read it for a book project and I absolutely loved it. Honestly, I am trash for anything with a podcast format lol.
      It is like three seasons at once right now. It is 75 degrees, there are leaves on the ground, and a Christmas tree and lights in the park. I don’t even know what is happening 🤷‍♀️

  2. What a fun tag! By the way, your picture of your fall books is beautiful! I could never take a picture that looked that nice. And oml I can totally relate to the winter thing. I was going to get Halloween decorations for my house and guess what they had up? Christmas decorations! Smh some people. Great answers!

  3. Thank you for the tag!
    It’s always so weird for me to see that people are in Fall or Winter when I am going into summer.
    It’s almost like here, fall goes and I miss it because I am so used to seeing summer tags and posts.
    Can’t wait to do this one 🙂

  6. I loved reading all of your answers to this tag! Tweet Cute is SUCH a good comforting read, and I thought it was so cute! The romance was so entertaining to read, and it’s definitely one of my favorite contemporaries from this year.

    I just got a copy of Girl, Serpent, Thorn recently too and I’m glad you’re enjoying it so far! It sounds like a great read, especially with the mythology twist!

    Great post!
