Hi Book Friends! I did this tag last year and decided to do it again! I hope everyone is having a good month so far and that you are getting fall weather where ever you are! It is still too hot 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! I am going to say the Seven Water series by Juliet Mariilier. Her writing style is so in depth and beautiful and I love going into her worlds!
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. I have read a few books this year that have dealt with loss and grief and I am not a huge fan of that but one that stuck out to. me was The Float Plan by Trish Doller. It is a romance so it has a HEA but I still cried numerous times in this book.
3. Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new. I don’t read a ton of non-fiction, I always want too but end up getting bored very easily. I will say that Education by Tara Westover was a fantastic book and I highly recommend it.
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. I know last year I said the Winston’s and honestly that has not changed! I would love to have a family dinner with all of them at the homestead! I have also discovered the Bergman family and would gladly join them for a meal or game night as well.
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. I am going to go with a series for this one. The Warrior Bard series by Juliet Marillier. The third book just came out on Tuesday and I am in the middle of reading it and this series is such a good one to read in the fall. They are so descriptive and atmospheric and just really lend to the fall vibes. Also as two of the main characters are Bards there is always story telling and songs in all three books.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read. I know I talk about this book a lot but Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia but it is really a great creepy and atmospheric book to read at this time of year. The descriptions of the house are so good!
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day. I am going to go with a new book that I just finished reading that I absolutely loved!! It was such a cute and heartwarming romance. The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.
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, this was my answer for last year and I just re-read it last week. SO the third in this series is not a favorite and in fact I rated it 2 stars but since I have never re-read it and I am now older I think I would like to go back and try it again.
10. Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”! I love blankets and pillows and socks! This is my current favorite spot to read besides my bed!
11. Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people! If you like doing tags are reading this then consider yourself tagged!
