Finally Fall Book Tag

Hello, book lovers! 💕

I wasn’t necessarily tagged to do this tag, but I love fall, and I’ve been wanting to do a fall book tag. Since it’s officially fall, I figured it was time. I originally saw this tag over at The Awkward Book Blogger, so if you aren’t following her blog, go do that because she has some amazing content.

This tag definitely got me in the fall mood, and now I want to curl up with a hot cup of coffee, a cozy blanket and a good book.

Onto the tag!

In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.

My initial thought was Harry Potter but I feel like I use that for a lot of answers in tags, so I’m going to go with A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab. I loved the setting in this trilogy. I really liked the different Londons that were so vastly different from each other.

Nature is beautiful… but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.

The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith is haunting and intense. It deals with rape and drug use, and it is extremely heavy. It’s written similarly like Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and follows a girl after a traumatic assault. It’s definitely a book that sticks with you and hits you in all the feels.

Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.

I don’t normally read non-fiction, and I’m not entirely sure if this is actually considered non-fiction. But I’m going to have to say Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. Recently, I’ve been getting more interested in mythology, and from watching the Marvel movies, I wanted to read more about Thor and the other Norse gods.

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 think I’m going to take Jessica’s answer because I agree wholeheartedly. I’d love to be apart of the original Gaang.

The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall coloured spines!

Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein someone is telling a story.

This one kind of stumped me for a bit, but I think I’m going to go with The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s written in letter form, and the main character Charlie is talking to the reader who he refers to as ‘friend’ in each letter.

The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.

I don’t really read a lot of creepy books, but one that I can think of that I have read is And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. I read this last October, and the mystery aspect of the book was pretty creepy. There was a point where I didn’t want to put it down, so I could figure out what was going to happen next.

The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.

If you’re a fan of the books in the Simonverse, then I’d say Love, Creekwood by Becky Albertalli is perfect. Not only is it short, but it also is heartwarming to see where the characters in the previous books wound up.

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

This one I’m going to go with Harry Potter. I think it’s this time of year, but I always love reading (or listening to or watching) Harry Potter when I can get all cozy on the couch with a blanket and a hot cup of coffee. It’s true that reading about Hogwarts feels like going home.

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

Of course I’d need a blanket; that’s a given. I’d also need a hot beverage of some sort. If I’m reading at night, it’d probably be a hot cup of green tea. If it’s during the day, it’d probably be coffee. Though there are times when I’d have hot chocolate.

I tag:

I’m not sure who has or hasn’t done this tag, so if I tag you and you’ve already done it, then I’d love to read your answers! If you haven’t done it, and I tagged you but don’t want to, that’s fine too. And if you weren’t tagged but want to do it, then feel free!

So that’s the Finally Fall Book Tag. If I didn’t tag you and you want to do this tag, feel free to do it anyway! It’s a lot of fun, especially if you love fall as much as I do.
