Happy Saturday, bibliophiles!
Still fall, so I might as well do this tag, right? Doesn’t *feel* very fall-like—we just got our first big snow on Thursday night, and it’s mostly melted now, but it’s still pretty chilly. We’ve still got a few straggler leaves, though, albeit very damp ones now.
Let’s begin, shall we?
🍁FALL INTO FALL BOOK TAG🍁
APPLE PICKING: A bright, shiny book on your shelf
My copy of A Song of Wraiths and Ruin has the most GORGEOUS gilded spine, and it always catches the light whenever I come into my room!
PUMPKIN SPICE: A book that everyone loved that just didn’t sit well with you
Everybody seemed to love The Space Between Worlds, but it left me wanting so much more—with such an expansive concept, I feel like there were so many more creative directions it could’ve taken, but alas…
FALL LEAF TOUR: A gorgeously written journey
I Am the Ghost in Your House not only presented an incredibly compelling piece of magical realism, but it gave us the poignant journey of Pie, an invisible girl grappling with how the world sees—and doesn’t see—her.
PUMPKIN PICKING: A book that reflects the pumpkin you always pick
My main criteria for pumpkins is just a) being light enough for me to pick up, and b) not super beaten up, so I’ll pick The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea—a solid length, and almost flawless.
HALLOWEEN COSTUME: A book with a character whose style you admire
Asta from The Reckless Kind is not only an absolute delight in personality, but also in her cheeky sense of style—nothing like split-dyeing your hair in the 1900’s to match your heterochromia!
FALL BEVERAGE: A book that reflects your favorite fall drink
I’d probably pick hot chocolate or cinnamon tea for my favorite fall drink, even though I technically drink cinnamon tea no matter the weather. Both of them make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and the same can be said for Heartstopper!
CORN MAZE: A book you can get lost in
The expansive, colorful world of Tillie Walden’s On a Sunbeam is one that I love to get lost in.
HOT FOOD: A book you waited all summer to read
Alright, technically, A Prayer for the Crown-Shy came out in July, but it was on hold so long that I only got around to reading it this October. Worth the wait, though!
