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
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
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
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!
