happy monday fellow bookoholics! ❤ how was your weekend? did you have a good reading time? i will have a busy week this week, that’s why i decided to do another tag. 😀 and since it’s fall i will do another fall book tag, yay me! 😀
this tag was originally created by Tall Tales on booktube. let’s start, shall we?
1.) in fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
well, there is no surprise, that i am picking the “shades of magic” series by v.e. schwab. i mean, come on! and there is not just one setting, there are basically four settings. all of different londons. hell, yeah! 😀
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.
i need to pick “words in deep blue” by cath crowleyfor this! first of all, look at the cover. such great colors, they remind me of oceans! ❤ i love the water! but this book goes so deep and deals with grief, but in such a wonderful way. i just love this book so much!!
3.) fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new
i do not read many non-fiction books, but i flew through this one! i am very fascinated with universe and stars and all that stuff, so this book was just awesome. although it’s older, it still blew my mind and i learned a lot! i totally recommend it to people who are interested in galaxies and all that stuff way up above, or beyond or next to us 😀
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
even though i just read the first book in the “harry potter” series, i loved the friendship between harry, hermione and ron. i think it would have been so much fun to be part of their group and go on those adventures. and i mean hogwarts itself as a setting. count me in! 😀
5.) the colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
(still need to read all of those 😀 )
6.) fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
let’s go with a classic here. first of all, look at that cover! i love the penguin english library editions! ❤ when i started reading “wuthering heights” by emily bronte i was very surprised that it was basically someone telling a story. i wasn’t the biggest fan of that, because i wasn’t sure who the narrator was all the time, but well, it is how it is right? 😀
7.) the nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
“you” by caroline kepnes is really creepy! first of all it’s about a serial killer. second of all, it’s in second person perspective, so it’s directed at the reader. and i loved that part, because it made the book so much creepier. but in all honesty, i loved this book. i even rooted for joe, which is completely wrong. i just couldn’t help it. kepnes did an amazing job here!
8.) the days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day
i think “the perks of being a wallflower” by stephen chbosky is an amazing choice for a rainy day! it’s a fast read but it’s also a great book with great characters and a heart-breaking and warming story.
9.) fall returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon
i really want to pick up “the curious incident of the dog in the night-time” by mark haddon soon. it’s been years, since i have read this and i’ve been seeing it everywhere lately and want to pick it up soon! 🙂
10.) fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
my warm and fuzzy socks! my sweatpants and large hoodie! one of my many blankets and pillows. candles and tea! give me all of that and i am the happiest person on earth! ❤ 😀
i’m not gonna tag anyone, but if you are in the fall mood, then feel free to do this tag! 🙂
