Book Tag. The Fall Book Tag

Happy Autumn! πŸ‚πŸ¦‰πŸ„ Although I'm a Summer child, I could not wait to say goodbye to it. Autumn is one of my favourite seasons because the weather cools down, the nightfall comes sooner, and the leaves change colours. Moreover, it is the spookiest season of the year. To celebrate Autumn's arrival, I'm joining The Fall Book Tag, created by Shanah @Bionic Book Worm (it was so difficult to pick an Autumn book tag among all those out there!).

The Rules:

  • Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag;
  • Use the graphics – if you want (I used my own because I created them before deciding which book tag I was going to join);
  • Have fun!

Crisp Fall Air - A Book That Felt Refresh and New

I did it! I only picked just one book without having to narrow down a single list. I think this requires some sort of celebration. πŸ₯³πŸ˜‹ For the first time, as soon as I read the prompt, I knew that my answer would be Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Mexican Gothic was such a refreshing story within the Gothic genre. I simply loved how the author intertwined Gothic tropes (an isolated mansion in ruins, a decaying English family, ghosts and nightmarish visions, violence, grotesque bodies, madness, lust, and family secrets) with Mexican folk and history.

Howling Winds - An Ending that Blew you Away
I may have been able to narrow down my answer to one on the previous prompt, but no such thing will happen now. πŸ˜‹ I haven't recovered yet from how Where Dreams Descend by Janella, Fable by Adrienne Young, and A Deadly Education by Naomi Novak ended. I know this was not the ending, since all the books mentioned will have a sequel. Nevertheless, these ended in cliffhangers -- huge cliffhangers! -- and I don't know how I will survive a whole year without knowing the "why?!" or what comes next.
Comfy Sweaters - A Book That Gave You Warm and Fuzzy's

*The moment you realize you read too many dark and spooky books.*
I really don't want to share with you my usual answer aka To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. As I already explained before, contemporary books always give me warm and fuzzy's, but I rarely read them. It has probably been a year and a half since I read a contemporary novel. However, I read A Dash of Trouble by Anna Meriano this year and it is such a charming and heart-warming book that blends magic and baking. It fits this prompt perfectly.

Bright Colours - A Cover With Red, Orange, or Yellow
Why not several covers with red, orange, and yellow? πŸ€ͺ If you know me, you already know that I'm going to pick several book covers with red, orange, and yellow.

Leaf Fight - A Book With No Stop Action
This was a difficult question. First, because I didn't want to mention the same books over and over again. Secondly, for some odd reason, my mind just goes blank when I'm faced with certain questions. I guess it's a bookworm thing -- when someone asks you a bookish question, all the books you love and gush about seem to vanish from your mind. Or at least that's what happens to me. πŸ˜‹ I guess this is actually good when it comes to book tags since I will definitely only pick a book -- the first one that crosses my mind. Anyway, a book I wish I was talking more that has no stop action is Dealing in Dreams by Lilliam Rivera. The streets of Mega City are patrolled by female crews that will hit/brand anyone who crosses their path and enforce the law of their leader. These ruthless girls are always involved in fights and never have a moment's rest.

Pumpkin Spice - Your Most Anticipated Reads
I'm so excited to read like a thousand books. My to-be-read pile grows every single day (especially now that I'm a Scribd subscriber) and I'm always excited to read this and that book. Unfortunately, I just do not have the time to read every single book I'm excited about. 😭 After doing my best to narrow down my answer to one and failing, here are some of my most anticipated reads (some of these I can't believe I haven't read them yet):

What do you love the most about Autumn? What kind of books do you enjoy reading during this season?

  1. I actually read two books in your anticipated pile. The Raven Boys was excellent. It took me some time to get used to Stiefvater's style, but then I loved it. I thought Lifestyles was an interesting twist on the original mythology

  2. Ooh I'm gonna have to do this tag! I'm so anticipating Kingdom of the Wicked!! I've only heard great things for it!!
