Another Saturday, another book tag! Happy Fall bookworms! We’re back with another book tag! We found this one because Thrice Read posted it! Head over and check out their blog for some great bookish posts.
In Fall, the air is crisp and clear // Name a book with a vivid setting –
Amanda: Antonia stole mine, so I’ll go with Maas’ other series (because I’m binge reading it before the last book comes out). Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I love exploring this world alongside the characters.
Antonia: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas has amazing settings that are described so perfectly.
Nature is beautiful, but also dying // Name a book that is beautifully written but deals with a heavy topic –
Amanda: WOW, Antonia stole my answer again. So, Ellen Hopkins wins this one. She writes about such heavy serious issues from drug abuse to mental health to gun violence. And she does it all in such a unique format.
Antonia: Anything by John Green. No matter what’s happening in his books, his writing is always profound.
Fall is back to school season // Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new –
Amanda: I don’t read a whole lot of non-fiction so I’ll substitute with a historical fiction. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly based on the French Revolution taught me a lot!
Antonia: I pretty much never read nonfiction so I don’t have an answer for this one.
In order to keep warm, it’s good to spend time with people we love // Name a fictional family, household, or friend group you’d like to be a part of –
Amanda: I have to say the Inner Circle from ACOTAR because I just love them all and their dynamic is so fun an entertaining.
Antonia: I would love to be friends with Del, Cass, and Nix from the Dragon’s Gift series by Linsey Hall. They have amazing friendships and are all about the girl power.
The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground // Show us a pile of fall-colored spines –
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside // Share a book wherein someone is telling a story –
Amanda: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
Antonia: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
The nights are getting darker // Share a dark, creepy read –
Amanda: Uprooted by Naomi Novik, dark but not so much creepy. I loved every page of this surprisingly dark story.
Antonia: I’m not big on the dark and creepy. The closest I can think of is The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert but I’ve only just started reading it so I really have no idea.
The days are getting colder // Name a short, heartwarming read to warm up someone’s cold, rainy day –
Amanda: Any of the books from the Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich. They’re full of love and laughs and adventure.
Antonia: Julia Quinn’s books always cheer me up. They’re funny and romantic and it’s impossible to be in a bad mood while reading them.
Fall returns every year // Name an old favorite you’d like to return to soon –
Amanda: The Harry Potter Series. I’ve been trying to reread it for a while, but I’ve been slowly reading the first book to my baby at night.
Antonia: All of them? I’m so bad when it comes to rereading books. Joust by Mercedes Lackey is currently on my list though.
We tag whoever wants to participate! Happy fall bookworms!
