Ahem so it’s actually known as the Finally Fall tag but cause I’m from the UK, and English we don’t say Fall. We say Autumn so I decided to rename it cause I have issues with calling Autumn, Fall. I’m not Fall-ing anywhere – ok except far behind my reading goal and with things in general. That’s so not the point though haha.
Fun facts, I was going to do this tag last year but never did, so it’s sat in drafts for well over a year; then the lovely Paige @ Bookish Paige tagged me in it. Thus giving me an excuse to finally dust the cobwebs off this, and write it up; thank you for tagging me in this Paige ❤
In fall, the air is crisp and clear:
name a book with a vivid setting!
Hmmm vivid setting – probably The Infernal Devices for me. I just remember picturing everything so clearly and coming back to reality that first time was jarring.
Nature is beautiful… but also dying:
name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief
*forgets every book she’s ever read* I remember reading The Year of the Rat by Claire Furniss I think last year…maybe the year before in 2016. Also remember crying over it, and onto the pages…ooopsies. Lemme check Goodreads for you all xD
Ok so I checked and I read it back in 2016, December time I think too…and people say we can’t remember what we read.
Fall is back to school season:
share a non-fiction book that taught you something new
I read this last year but it’s Doing It! Let’s Talk About Sex by Hannah Witton and honestly, it was so interesting, insightful in terms of explaining things like relationships, sex etc it gives you a lot to think about. Just…if you’re curious like me go read it.
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
Either the Shadowhunter group back in the Victorian era, Celaena’s group in Throne of Glass OR the squad in Six Of Crows…(honorable shout out to the Inner Circle in ACOTAR also another group I’d love to chill with)
Can we tell I’m bad at picking one?!
The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground:
show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
I would…but I have no energy to take photos
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside:
share a book wherein somebody is telling a story
Every book is someone telling a story, at least to me it is soooo Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed because it’s the story of millions of girls. It’s a powerful story and I loved reading it so much.
The nights are getting darker:
share a dark, creepy read
I don’t really read creepy books like the best we have are the paranormal reads…which aren’t even that bad.
The days are getting colder:
name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day
A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard because this book warmed me up when I was down, made me laugh, get emotional…I just loved it.
Fall (luckily, it’s my favourite season) returns every year:
name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon
HERE HAVE A LIST OF BOOKS I WANT TO REREAD:
- Chicagloand Vampires by Chloe Neill
- The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
- Devil’s Isle by Chloe Neill
- Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
- The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
- The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
- A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights:
share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
Ermmm I’m usually with a mug of tea in the autumn/winter time downstairs, candle lit reading. At least I was last year xD
Wheee so that’s a tag finally done, I’m sorry in advance for sheer volume of tags that’ll be coming your way. HUGE tip, don’t procrastinate on tags. They soon pile up on you and then, next thing you know, they’re plotting against you with your TBR pile.
If I tagged you, you don’t have to do the tag, but it’d be nice if you did. And if I didn’t tag you, but you wanna do the tag anyway then feel free to link back here and enjoy!
