I'm sorry for my hiatus on here, I have been swamped with quizzes and schoolwork. Luckily, I have time to post today and hopefully more this weekend and next week! I was tagged by Alaina over at An Infinite Book World to do the It's Finally Fall! Book Tag.
1. In the fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
A book with a vivid setting would definitely have to be Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. In the book, the setting of Ketterdam and the Ice Court were super vivid. I could easily imagine myself there, with all of the details given.
2. Nature is beautiful, but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
The first book that came to mind for this question was Protected by Claire Zorn. It was beautifully executed, although it dealt with a lot of heavy things such as loss and grief.
3. Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
At the moment, I haven't read any non-fiction books recently!
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.
A family that I would love to be a part of is the Black family from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I really love the bond between Daemon, Dawson, and Dee, and would love to be included in something like that!
5. The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
I didn't have time to take a picture of fall-colored spines but some good ones are ACOTAR, City of Fallen Angels, and Ruin and Rising.
6. Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein it somebody is telling a story.
I am going to use Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, when Daemon tells Katy the legend of Snowbird.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
I actually can't think of any super creepy reads at the moment.
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody's cold and rainy day.
I'm going to pick The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson for this question because it is a quick, sweet contemporary that will definitely warm you up!
9. Fall returns every year: name an old favorite that you'd like to return to soon.
This isn't exactly old, but I'd love to re-read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom... again...
10. Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favorite cozy reading "accessories"!
I love reading cuddled in a nice flannel blanket!
11. Spread some autumn appreciation and tag some people!
I tag everyone reading this post to do this tag! :)
