Hello to all my great readers! Today I’m gonna be doing another tag. (*gasp* Wait?!! Another TAG????!!! No way! I sure didn’t see that coming!)
I was actually tagged for this one (shocker, right?) by Riddhi @ Whispering Stories! Thanks, Riddhi! She always has something fun or bookish (same thing to me ;)) going on over on her blog, so go check it out!
There are no rules this time. 😉
In Fall the air is crisp and clear : Name a book with a vivid setting.
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 Bloody Book by Chris Bowen wasn’t a “beautifully written” book. In fact it was gritty, filled with slang, and harsh. But, it was GREAT! It is all about this boy (I’m not sure if it is fiction or non-fiction…?) who is the son of a druggie. It is constantly zipping back and forth between current and past. It is a good glimpse into the life of a child in such a circumstance. This book truly made my heart hurt.
You can find my review of it here.
Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
The Case of Faith by Lee Strobel is packed full with really deep, heavy, and educational stuff that I am slowly working through. It is so great though! Also, 1001 Things Your Teen Should Know Before They Leave Home by Harry H. Harrison Jr. is a really educational book that I learned a lot from!
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.
This is a really hard one for I’ve never wished for a better family. I am very blessed for having the awesome one I have. Although, I love the hobbits friend group in The Lord of the Rings. They are so close knit! I love it!
The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall coloured spines!
I couldn’t find enough! Haha!! Most of my books have pretty muted tones. 😉
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein someone is telling a story.
The Girl Who Chased Away Her Sorrow by Ann Turner. In most of the Dear America books, it is the diary of a girl in history who is writing from her point of view. I liked this one for it was a little different. It was a Navajo girl who had recently attended a “white man’s school” writing down her grandmother’s story. I enjoyed it pretty well. It was good.
The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.
I can’t say I’ve read many “creepy” books…sorry, guys!
The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall is my go-to rainy day read!
Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott or The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien!!!
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
