Welcome back to Reading, Reading, Reading!
My reading and posting have been slowing down drastically ever since I started university, but I hope that as I get more settled and more comfortable with my schedule/routine, I will be able to begin reading avidly once again – just as I was able to do in the summer! I stumbled upon this book tag on Krista’s BookTube channel, and thought that I had to jump on it, as I love the fall season and have not participated in a book tag in so long!
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng has one of the most well-written small town settings I have ever encountered while reading a book! Although this one did not live up to the hype for me, I still enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys books that are set in tight-knit towns.
Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is one of the best books I have read all year, both for it’s fantastic writing and ability to capture so many emotions in a heartbreaking story.
Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
I have not read many non-fiction books this year, but I am slowly but surely making my way through Stamped From The Beginning by Ibram X. Kendi, which I am learning an immeasurable amount of information 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 a part of.
The Switch by Beth O’leary is one of my favourite books of 2020 thus far, and what made it so great were the amazing characters that O’leary created in this novel!
The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer is one of my all-time favourite book series, that essentially are all based on the power of storytelling and the adaptation of fairy tales we all know and love!
The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
Lock Every Door by Riley Sager genuinely scared me at times, and I highly recommend it for the upcoming spooky season!
The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
The Flatshare by Beth O’leary may not be so short, but it is one of my favourite contemporary romance’s of all time!
Fall returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon.
I have been wanting to re-read The Fault In Our Stars by John Green for ages, and since the movie adaptation is going onto Disney+ later this week, I definitely hope to re-read it sometime in October!
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!
Currently, my favourite reading accessory has been my Kindle Paperwhite! Ever since I purchased it, I have been reading one physical book and one e-book at the same time, and while I never used to enjoy reading two books at the same time, I have been loving it ever since I purchased my Kindle!
