The weather where I am is so unconventional but it’s slowly becoming more fall-like. I’m going to have a few more book tags going up this month because I love Halloween and the fall season. So, I’m sorry if you’re not interested in tags but I’ll be back to predominantly book reviews next month!
1. In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
Six of Crows has such a vivid setting and I really loved the description of all the different places in the book.
2. Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven is such a beautifully written book and I loved how it dealt with such heavy topics.
3.Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown is a really influential book that while I’ve only read portions of the book, it’s one that’s stayed with me for a while.
4. 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 a part of.
The Inner Circle from A Court of Mist and Fury omg can I please just join your group?Thanks! They’re just such an amazing group of people (or fae) and I’d love to be a part of that group.
5. The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-coloured spines!
6. Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
The Star Touch Queen by Roshani Chokshi is the only book I can really think of where the main character is telling a story. I know there’s another book where someone is telling a story but I really can’t remember anything right now.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
Cuckoo Song by Frances Hardinge is definitely one of the creepiest reads that I’ve read recently.
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heart-warming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
Me and Milo the Great by Michelle Schlicher is a book that I can see anyone falling in love with, or at least being warmed by.
9. Fall returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon.
City of Bones and The Infernal Devices are books that I really want to read again because I loved them so much.
10. Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
I love reading with cute bookmarks, fall leaves, and a chunky maroon scarf! I got the scarf while I was in Inverness and I love it so much!
