Finally Fall Book Tag

Finally Fall Book Tag

I don’t know about you, but I freaking love the fall. Maybe it’s because where I live it’s either scorching hot or freezing cold with no in between. Maybe it’s because I’m constantly sweaty (ew, I know) and can’t handle the heat despite being born and raised in the southern part of the US. Maybe it’s because I can finally bust out my comfy sweaters and walk outside without freezing my buttocks off. TL;DR: I like fall because I can go outside and actually enjoy the weather for once. Fall for us lasts maybe one week. Two, if we’re lucky.

So yeah… when I saw this “finally fall” book tag, I knew this was the thing for me. On top of that, I was tagged by the lovely Norees @ No Reads Too Great! Thanks for tagging me!

QUESTION 1 – In fall, the air is crisp and clear:
Name a book with a vivid setting.

Amazon.com: Renegades (Renegades (1)) (9781250044662): Meyer, Marissa: Books

For some reason, I can vividly picture the Renegades world. I can easily see the metropolis, downtown area where the Renegades Headquarters is located, and the desolate, ghost-town feel of where the Anarchists reside. It might be easier to picture because it’s similar to a lot of superhero movies that I’ve watched….

QUESTION 2 – Nature is beautiful… but also dying:
Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss of grief.

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City): Maas, Sarah J.: 9781635574043:  Amazon.com: Books

I’m going to have to steal Norees’s answer for this one. Throughout the book, Bryce is reeling from the death of her best friend. Her grief is very evident as she tries to solve the mystery behind the murder cases that have been popping up around town. As you all know, I think all of Sarah J. Maas’s works are amazing, and this book is no exception. If you haven’t already, make sure to add this to your TBR!

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

This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession: Levitin,  Daniel J.: 9780452288522: Amazon.com: Books

Coincidentally enough, I recently finished reading This is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession! I had it on my shelf for five or so years, and I thought what better time to read it than in quarantine. I learned quite a bit about music’s effect on the brain, and I’m glad I took the time to read it (despite it being pretty dry).

QUESTION 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 part of.

This one is a no-brainer for me. I want to be part of the Gaang. The Boomeraang Squad. Team Avatar. Whatever their group name is, I want in.

QUESTION 5 – The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground:
Show us a pile of fall colored spines!

QUESTION 6 – Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside:
Share a book wherein someone is telling a story.

The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

The first book that came to mind is The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. Shahrzad, the main female protagonist, uses her storytelling skills to enchant the murderous king to survive in his palace and get revenge for her friend’s death.

──────── ●⚫● ────────

QUESTION 7 – The nights are getting darker:
Share a dark, creepy read.

Through the Woods eBook: Carroll, Emily, Carroll, Emily: Kindle Store -  Amazon.com

I don’t read a lot of creepy, scary things since I’m a chicken, but I thought it was a great idea to read this graphic novel full of scary stories. Boy, did I regret my decision because I found it too scary and DNF-ed it.

──────── ●⚫● ────────

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

Amazon.com: Check, Please! Book 1: # Hockey (9781250177957): Ukazu, Ngozi:  Books

THIS GRAPHIC NOVEL DUOLOGY IS THE CUTEST THING EVER, OKAY?! Please read it. It’s about a boy who plays hockey, loves to bake, and is grappling with how to come out to his teammates. Everyone is super supportive of him and it’s honestly the most wholesome comic I’ve read in a long time. Plus, if you don’t want to buy a copy/loan it from the library, it’s all online, since it was originally a web comic.

──────── ●⚫● ────────

QUESTION 9 – Fall returns every year:
Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.

Pin on Books to Watch out For

I want to revisit The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. I haven’t been keeping up with her works after Lady Midnight, and I kind of miss the Shadowhunter world. Out of all her books I’ve read, The Infernal Devices is definitely my favorite series.

──────── ●⚫● ────────

QUESTION 10 – Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights:
Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories”!

I like to curl up into a fuzzy blanket burrito while I read in the colder months. It’s one of the most comfortable things ever!

I tag…

      Sweater weather is the best! It’s still a little too hot where I live, but I can’t wait until I can bust out all my comfy clothing!

    The weather is still weird around here (sometimes super hot and sunny, and ten minutes later, it’s raining) so I never know what to wear and that’s the most annoying thing about the transition from summer to fall, however I’m super excited about everything fall-related and I’m determined to make it memorable! I so wish I were part of Team Avatar too XD And re-reading The Infernal Devices sounds like a lovely idea, go for it!! ❤ Thank you so much for tagging me! 😀

      The city where I go to uni is like that too! You never know what to wear because one moment its hot and the next moment its pouring rain.

      Being on Team Avatar seems like the best (and maybe scariest) thing! If you could bend any element, which one would you think you’d bend?

      I might reread The Infernal Devices this upcoming summer… We’ll have to see how far behind I am on my physical TBR first 😅

        Bending fire would be the coolest thing ever, but I’m so clumsy, it wouldn’t be wise hahaha So I’d go with water (which is equally badass)!! What about you? 😀

          Bending fire sounds so cool! I feel like I’d be an earthbender because I can be super stubborn, but if I could choose I’d want to be a water bender. It’s so versatile! Plus they can heal, and that’s pretty cool.
