Finally Fall Book Tag

Finally Fall Book Tag

The lovely Misty tagged me in this post not so long ago, and instead of letting it sit in my drafts until next autumn, I thought now would be a good time to complete it!


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

nos4a2

NOS4R2 by Joe Hill comes to mind. The setting of ‘Christmasland’ was fantastically vivid!

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 Trees by Ali Shaw was really beautifully written, even though I didn’t end up super loving it. For all it’s magical creepiness, the actual story is very heavy in this book and there were moments that did make me cry! I think if I read this book now (for the first time) I would have enjoyed it more… which is a shame!

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

All non-fiction teaches me stuff! I’m going with Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakuer, though, as I had no knowledge on the creation of the Mormon faith and this book taught me a lot!

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

Well, as long as I didn’t get on her bad side, I’d love to be friends with Rhiannon from Sweetpea by C. J. Skuse!

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

I posted this picture on my Instagram back in August!

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

15994498

The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson! It wasn’t my favourite read but works perfectly for this question!

~

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

26116474

Most recently, A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay gave me the creeps!

~

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

Lol, I don’t read heartwarming books… literally nothing comes to mind!

~

Fall (luckily, it’s my favourite season) returns every year: Name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon.

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis! I really want to reread this one but I’m also worried I won’t love it as much as I did the first time?

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

A cup of tea and a blanket/duvet!


That’s all for this tag! Thanks again to the lovely Misty for tagging me in this weather relevant tag!

Tagging: Bridget // Marija // Shalini

  1. I loved Under the Banner of Heaven, such a fascinating book! And you’re right, it’s really one that you can learn a lot from. Like you I’m also hesitant to reread some favorites because I’m afraid they won’t live up to my memory or impression of them the first time around! I guess what a book means to you can change over time and that’s ok too 🙂
