Even though it is technically Spring here in Australia, I thought I would do this tag anyway. I saw it on Brittany’s channel over on youtube and liked the idea of it. So here goes. And, I have also finally figured out how to add pictures, so there’s going to be pictures this time 🙂 YAY!!!
1. In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
For this question, I have to go with The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. While reading this book, I felt like I was really at the Cirque de Reves. I could literally picture the circus so vividly in my mind and it was such a beautiful experience.
2. Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
For this one, I’ll be going with Land of Elyon: The Tenth City by Patrick Carman. This book deals with death in such a beautiful way. It’s not just the death of a person either, but also the death of magic and nature.
3. Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
I haven’t actually read any non-fiction books except one and I don’t remember it’s name. I read it for school and it was a really good book. I just know that it was about the Holocaust and that a Jewish father was telling his children about his experiences.
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.
I haven’t really read many books that involve friend groups or families, but I think I will go with The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I think that Percy and Grover would be great people/satyrs to be friends with. Also, that would mean I’d be a half-blood, which is super cool
5. The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
6. Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
Once again, Land of Elyon by Patrick Carman will be making this list, but this time it is Into The Mist. This one is a prequel to the series and features Roland Warvold telling the story of his adventures through the Land of Elyon to Alexa while they are aboard the Warwick Beacon. This is a book where it shifts through the different timelines, so you see Roland’s perspective during the story and Alexa’s perspective of listening to the story. This book also leads into the storyline for the end of the main series as well.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
I don’t tend to read creepy books because they are scary, but I do remember a series of books I used to read when I was younger. I think they were called After Dark and I have not heard of them for a while. Also, whenever I google them, they don’t seem to exist. If you’re in Australia and have ever seen a series of books called After Dark with black covers, let me know. I have been looking for them for years.
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
Again, there’s more Land of Elyon (I love it so much, OK?) The answer for this one is Dark Hills Divide. It’s pretty short and made me feel all happy and stuffs, so yeah lol.
9. Fall returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon.
I think I shall have to say Harry Potter. I have not reread the series and I kind of want to. I grew up with the it and loved it back then and I want to see if it is still as good as it was back then.
10. Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
My only reading accessory is my Hufflepuff blanket. I snuggle up with it when I am reading and I love it. It is so cozy and warm.
11. Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people!
If you want to do this tag, do it. Link your tag to me in the comments so I can see it/read it too.
THANK YOU and GOODBYE!!!
