Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall. – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Fall is finally here so I want to celebrate that with a book tag. I found this on There’s Something About KM.
I hope that you enjoy! Let’s get started!
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.
The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson, at least the ones that are out so far. The world that he has created is amazingly vivid and detailed.
Nature is beautiful… but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
A Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner. This was such a beautiful book, but it was also heartbreaking as it talked about the aftermath of 9/11 and the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire.
Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
She Has Her Mother’s Laugh by Carl Zimmer. I learned so much about genetics from this book and it was absolutely fascinating.
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.
I’m not sure. I love the dynamics of the existing groups, so if I was a part of one of those it could quite potentially completely change the entire dynamic of the group. I guess I would like to be a part of the group of people who got to visit Narnia. That way things could still remain the same in the books, but I would still be a part of that elite group.
The colourful 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 somebody is telling a story.
There is Granny’s Wonderful Chair by Frances Browne. It is about a little girl and her adventures, and also about a chair that can tell fairy tales. That is a terrible description of it though.
The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.
I don’t read especially creepy books so this one is hard for me… Um… There’s The American Plague by Molly Caldwell Crosby. That’s about the yellow fever in America and how it shaped our country. I found it fascinating, but I know that at least my sister found the idea of it creepy. And it is dark because it talks about people dying.
The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
The Poet’s Dog by Patricia MacLachlan. It is a short read, but it is so sad, sweet and poetic.
Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.
Oh, I want to read Lord of the Rings or Pride and Prejudice again soon. I’ll probably read Lord of the Rings first though because I haven’t read that one for longer.
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories”!
I don’t live in a place that gets that cold, so bundling up is not really an option. However I do love having a cup of tea with me while I am reading.
I hope that you enjoyed this tag! And if you feel so inclined, please, consider yourself tagged!
