Another Sunday, another book tag.
I am super excited to do the Finally Fall book tag (I was tagged by Norees @NoReadsTooGreat) today because 1) fall is the greatest season, undisputed and 2) the weather decided to finally cool down so I can walk around my yard without having a heatstroke.
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.
The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
When you turn your settings into characters themselves, I’m pretty confident that your setting is about as vivid as you can get.
Nature is beautiful… but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss of grief.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
I’ve only recently picked up Backman’s books, but the two I’ve read have been fantastic – rich characters and histories with incredibly depth and humanity. A Man Called Ove deals with loss of a loved one and contemplation of suicide/suicide attempts while offering such joy, hope, and community.
Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new
Our Time is Now: Power, Purpose, and the Fight for a Fair America by Stacey Abrams
As the elecion draws closer, I honestly think this book should be required reading. It’s a comprehensive look at all things voting: gerrymandering, repression, registration, canvasing, fundraising and much more.
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.
The Brown Sisters from Talia Hibbert‘s trilogy of the same name.
These sisters are amazing – they clearly love, care, and support each other so much, but are not afraid to poke fun at each other either.
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein someone is telling a story.
If We Were Villains by M.L. Rio
I think this counts because Oliver os telling the story of what happened ten years ago.
The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.
This Darkness Mine by Mindy McGinnis
I feel like no matter what McGinnis book you pick up, you’re guaranteed some level of creepiness
The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston
This was a perfect cozy, happy, family holiday story that definitely brought a smile to my face.
Fall returns every year: Name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
I’m in the middle of my Raven Cycle re-read so this is an obvious choice, but it’s also perfect to read during fall!
What are your favorite books to read during fall? I’m going to try an read more mysteries and thrillers this year because I fell that’s one area I really haven’t explored much yet. So feel free to leave some recommendations below!
And as always -until next time,
