Finally Fall Book Tag!

Hello everyone! I realize it's been a while since I've posted a book tag and we're about to remedy that! Fall is my favorite time of year and I'm beyond excited that it's finally upon us. The crisp cool air, beautiful colors all around, and perfect sweater weather! Spring just doesn't do it for me like fall does. And where I got to college at, there's so many trees and beautiful spots that I feel like I could live here forever. 

I figured that since I hadn't done a book tag in a while and I was running out of ideas for what to post this month, I would do the Finally Fall Book Tag. I first saw this tag around last year and it recently resurfaced again this year! I wasn't tagged by anybody, but I just wanted to do it so let's go ahead and jump on in! This was originally created by Alina at Tall Tales on Youtube!

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

I'm going to go with Caraval by Stephanie Garber for this one. Stephanie paints such a brilliant beautiful picture with her words and I am seriously dying to visit Caraval after hearing her describe it. I can picture it so easily and it gives me such fantastical vibes. 

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.

For me, this book is one that came out at the beginning of September and continues to impact me: Sadie by Courtney Summers. For my full thoughts, you can find my review here, but overall this book just hit me really hard. It was so impactful and eye-opening as well as being an interesting thriller. 

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

I don't particularly read any non-fiction books. I suppose that the books I read for school have taught me something new? 

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 would love to be a part of the Covey family from the To All the Boys I've Loved Before trilogy. They seem like such a supporting and fun family that I would be honored to be with. But I also love the Court of Terrasen from Throne of Glass and the Court of Dreams from A Court of Mist and Fury

5. The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!

I actually don't have a picture for this, but if you want to go check out all of the other book piles I've taken pictures of, you can check out my book-themed instagram here :) 

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

I haven't read this book yet, but I know that in it the main character is retelling his story for someone to write down I believe. That is The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. I still have yet to read it but I am excited to when I finally get to it. I feel like just with college I'm having a hard time reading longer books because of how long it takes me to get through them but hopefully over winter break! 

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

For this, I'm choosing Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Mansicalco. It's about a girl interested in forensic science who begins trying to catch Jack the Ripper. It was a deliciously dark and amazing ride that I can't wait to reread soon!

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

To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han definitely falls into this category. I'm also a fan of Check, Please!, a graphic novel by Ngozi Ukazu. It is also super cute and heartwarming and such a quick read. 

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

There's so many of them. I'm currently rereading the Throne of Glass series in preparation for the final book coming out this month and I have to reread Six of Crows for class. But otherwise I do want to reread Twilight simply to get back some of my childhood nostalgia. 

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

I always read in my cozy papasan chair when I'm at college. Sometimes I'll read in my bed but that usually leads to Netflix or napping so my chair is the place to be. I also use my super big tie blanket and I end up just in one big pile of cuddle. It's quite nice. 

11. Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people!

I tag @lexisbooktalks, @starlight.reads, and @dontgobrekkarmyheart on Instagram.

Thanks for reading! Happy Fall everybody! I can't wait to bust out tea and sweaters and cosy blankets in my dorm room!
