It’s time to ignore the fact that its eternally summer here and dive into some fall tags! Again, my apologies I had to do the seasonal tags first or I would have to wait till next year! I know I am super behind on tags haha, but I have them all jotted down somewhere and eagerly look forward to all of them.
Fall Time, Cozy Time Tag
CRUNCHING LEAVES: The world is full of colour! Choose a book with red/orange/yellow on the cover.
These two give me a lot of fall vibes! Allegiant was a book I was quite disappointed in, especially the same sounding POVs while Where the Crawdads Sing was a out-of-my-normal-genres read that had intriguing characters!
COZY SWEATER: It’s finally cool enough for warm cozy clothing! What book gives you the warm fuzzies?
The Lunar Chronicles is always a comfort read for me… I love all the characters and the found family trope… And how they all work together and really make a change in Winter just makes me so proud of them!
FALL STORM: The wind is howling & the rain is pounding. Choose a book that you like to read on a stormy day.
I would imagine a stormy sky matching my overflowing tears for The Book Thief! Truly a historical fiction from the unique POV of death, one that features the love of my life: books and has incredibly endearing characters.
COOL CRISP AIR: makes you breathe freely~ Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Look at me, finding a way to squeeze 2 series from my favourite author in one tag!
Nova is like the coolest ever okay. If I trading places means I get her powers, wit and personality, then I’m all for it! Also, I would be super excited to meet all the Anarchists ah!
HOT APPLE CIDER: warm autumn drink. What underhyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
The Seeds of America was one of the most eye-opening historical fictions I read. It is told from the perspective of a Black slave during the American Revolution and truly touches on important themes like racism.
COAT, SCARVES, & MITTENS: the weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up! What’s a book cover you don’t like?
How could this happen?! 😦 I feel quite disappointed by the new cover, not that is very ugly but that I thought the original one was so iconic and pretty already.
PUMPKIN SPICE: time for some Starbucks! What’s your favourite fall comfort food?
That’s a tricky one since it’s eternally summer at the equator. Ermmm books?!
WARM, COZY BONFIRE: spread the cozy warmth! Who do you tag?
I tag anyone who fulfills one of the following conditions:
- is interested to do the tag
- says “fall” instead of “autumn”
- fell down in the past week
The Pumpkin Spice Latte Tag
Many thanks to Becky @ Dusts of Magic for the tag! (Another lovely blogger with a lovely looking blog!)
🍂 PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE 🍂
a book you didn’t think you’d love
Okay I didn’t love this book but I really liked it! And I wasn’t expecting to be able to connect to the characters so much and really feel the dull, numb, regretful atmosphere.
🍂 HOT APPLE CIDER 🍂
a book that got you a bit hot under the collar
After reading this, I finally got the big hullabaloo about a certain chapter…
*coughs and blushes profusely*
🍂 PEANUT BUTTER HOT CHOCOLATE 🍂
a book that felt like a warm hug
Family and love and sacrifice and courage = a book that warms the cockles of my heart
🍂 MAPLE PECAN LATTE 🍂
a book you enjoyed that was hard to get into
It was definitely tough reading about Beck’s abuse at the hands of his mother and how powerless he was… but A Thousand Perfect Notes is one of the sweetest stories ever.
🍂 LONDON FOG 🍂
a vanilla character
I read a lot of fantasy and none of them could be considered vanilla haha. So we are going with Quentin from Paper Towns, one of the only contemporaries I read this year.
🍂 HOT BUTTERED RUM 🍂
a book that was velvety smooth to read
Warcross was smooth in the way that time just slipped by as I was engrossed in the world! This book has excellent world building and a great set-up with shocking turn of events, a great sci-fi!
🍂 PUMPKIN CREAM COLD BREW 🍂
a character whose temperament is icy cold
Cardan at first. And he still seems rather mysterious even after I completed the trilogy. I hope that How the King of Elfhame Learnt to Hate Stories will dissolve that air of mystery he has around him!
🍂 SALTED CARAMEL MOCHA 🍂
a book that you’re salty about
Because love triangles never seem to work my way… *big sigh*
🍂 HONEY BEE LATTE 🍂
a character who is sweet
I loved the contrast between the two sisters and their fierce protectiveness + different ways they try to make a difference. Isabelle and Vianne are the sweetest ever.
🍂 GINGERBREAD LATTE 🍂
a character you’d take home for christmas
Piper McCloud is such a sweet character, I would love to chat with her!
Ahaana @ Windows to Worlds
Isha @ Paperback Tomes
Kirsten @ The Novel Existence
Meg @ Meg’s Magical Musings
Pilar @ The Bookworm Shelf
If you guys have no interest or are too busy, that’s cool too!
