The Fall Bucket List Book Tag

Hello, lovelies! University has been cranking up its difficulty at the moment and I’ve been struggling to keep up with posting regularly. Thankfully, Marta @ The Book Mermaid saved my butt by tagging me in a nice and easy book tag!

I freaking love fall. Or, more realistically, I love the idea of fall. I live in Texas, so it gets pretty hot in the summer. I recently moved cities now that I’m going to university and the place where I moved to is way more humid than where I used to live. Humidity + heat + large campus is not a good look. I look forward to fall every year, but the typical fall weather only lasts a week here in Texas. We have six months of summer, one week of fall, six months of winter, and one week of spring. Basically, Texas hates nice temperatures. Anyhow, I love the thought of autumn, and I’m ready to fall straight into this tag! (bad, dry pun intended)

The Rules

  1. Link back to the original creator (Tiffany @ Read by Tiffany) in your post.
  2. Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
  3. Tag 7 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.

I recently read Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell, and it felt like drinking a nice hot cup of hot cocoa on a chilly day. The relationship between Josiah and Deja was so cute. They are opposites, but their personalities complement each other well. It doesn’t hurt that it’s set on a cute pumpkin patch in the middle of fall, which makes it perfect to read right now! If you haven’t picked it up yet, I highly recommend that you do!

The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black is probably one of the most hyped books I’ve seen in a while. Granted, I totally understand why the book community is excited for this book to come out. With how the last book in the series ended, I need to know what happens next! It left on a sort of cliffhanger that has had me anxiously waiting for next week to come sooner. Honestly, if you haven’t started The Folk of the Air series (the first book is called The Cruel Prince), I highly recommend waiting until November 19th to start so you have the full series available.

The friendship and camaraderie between the squad in Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff makes me want to give them all a big bear group hug (although most, if not all, of them are probably taller than I am… I’ll figure out the logistics eventually). Although they didn’t meld together too well in the beginning, as they got to know each other better, you could see that they were beginning to form an unbreakable bond. They might not be at the point of calling themselves a family, but they’re getting there. I hope in the next couple books we get to see this strong friendship/familial bonds grow.

I don’t think I talk about it enough on my blog, but I absolutely love Little Moments of Love by Catana Chetwynd. I follow this comic artist on Instagram because I love the cute content that she posts. It brings me so much joy to see so much love and cuteness in one place. She not-so-recently came out with a complication of some of her comics as well as some exclusive ones, and I couldn’t have been more excited to get my hands on a copy. It’s all about her relationship with her boyfriend, which will warm your heart on the coldest days and restore your faith in humanity.

I don’t know if this counts since I haven’t finished reading the book yet, but With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo follows a teen mom who brings magic into cooking and finds an opportunity of a lifetime that she cannot give up despite her responsibilities to her daughter and her abuela. I haven’t been able to finish what I started since I forgot to bring the book with me to college, but once I visit home, I plan to finish it. The way Emoni makes food and the way the author describes it is so lyrical that I can almost taste the food on the paper. It sounds weird, but it’s true.

A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas made me super happy when I read the story, but probably not for the reason you’re thinking. Yes, I do love Sarah J. Maas and all the works she’s produced, but I found it hard to like the third book in her ACOTAR series. I just thought a lot of what happened was convenient. I understand that she had to wrap up a large story in a single book, which is more difficult than I can ever comprehend, but I didn’t like the way she decided to clean up the loose threads. Anyway, I was skeptical when I started reading the novella that came after the third book, but I was surprised to find myself enjoying it. I was too scared that I would be disappointed again, but I wasn’t. It redeemed the series in my eyes, and I’m excited to jump into the next book once it’s released.

    As a fellow Texan, I definitely feel your pain with our lack of fall weather haha!.. I totally agree with A Court of Frost and Starlight. I thought it was a good novella that will help connect the previous trilogy to the upcoming one.

    I may have to do this tag. It’s been a while since I’ve done one and I love fall! 🙂

      Ah, a fellow Texan! Hello! The weather here has been up and down that I’m not sure how to dress when I leave my room in the morning XD

      I’m excited to see what Sarah J. Maas does with the second series in the ACOTAR universe, but I’m still a little nervous since it won’t be following the same set of characters. Then again, I think it’ll be super cool to see the world in a different set of eyes!

      I hope you have fun with this tag! ❤

    Humidity and heat! I am hearing you, it can get terrible. Where I am living in Australia it is so so hot at the moment and the fires are out of control! Fall sounds nice! Thanks for your posts!

    Awww thanks for tagging me Jessica! ♥️👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I’m dying to read Pumpkin heads, it sounds super fun. I too loved the friendships in Aurora Rising, they did a good job showing a disparate group of teens coming together. I didn’t realize what With the Fire on High was about. It sounds good, I’ll have to check it out. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

      Pumpkinheads is a perfect novel for the fall season, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did ❤
      I can't say much about With the Fire on High, but so far it's really good. I think you'll like it if you decide to pick it up one day 😀

    I love fall, it’s my second favourite season! (Spring being the first one.) I’m lucky that I live in central Europe and fall lasts for months. 😀 Pumpkinheads seems like such a cute and fun graphic novel, I can’t wait to get around to it.
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤

    Really like the sound of pumkinheads! hehe yeah there’s definitely a reason queen of nothing is getting hyped 😉 I think it’ll be great when people can just binge the whole series- that cliffhanger is torture!! Aurora rising is such a good choice for friendships! Awesome answers!

      I don’t think I’ll have a chance to go to the bookstore to grab a copy of Queen of Nothing any time soon, so I might have to get the ebook version now that it’s been released. I need to know what happens next and how Holly Black decided to end this epic series! 😀
