Hi Book Friends! How was everyone’s week? Things are good here in Colorado! I saw Heather from the youtube channel bookables do this tag and I thought it looked like fun!
1. In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting! The Stillhouse Lake series by Rachel Caine
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. This one is hard because I don’t read too many heavy books. The Great Alone by Kristen Hannah was the first one that came to mind. Another is His Bright Light by Danielle Steele, I read this a long time ago and it is about her son who committed suicide.
3. Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new. It’s been awhile since I read non-fiction that really taught me something but Alison Weir’s books come to mind.
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 Winston’s from Penny Reid’s books.
5. The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
6. Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story. Where Did You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple is one of my favorite books and I am always recommending it to people. It’s about a girl telling the story of her mother’s disappearance but through mixed media.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read. Lisa Gardner and Karin Slaughter books fir this prompt for me.
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day. The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler, set in Alaska and takes place in a cute little town.
9. Fall (luckily, it’s my favourite season) returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon. Son Of Shadows by Juliet Marillier, this is book two in a fantasy series that takes place in ancient Ireland.
10. Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”! I love blankets and this is my favorite reading chair with a cozy blanket.
11. Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people! If you like doing tags are reading this then consider yourself tagged!
