Fall Activities Book Tag

fallact

I’ve been tagged by the Orang-Utan Librarian and Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions to do the Fall Activities Book Tag (originally created by Dreaming Through Literature). Usually I am very late with tags, but I made an exception with this one, because I sort of wanted to get it done before the end of fall (it seriously wouldn’t have been much a of a shocker if I stumbled up this again in Spring 2017 had I not seen it today). Thanks for tagging me! Let’s do this!

APPLE PICKING

A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it

A Million Worlds with You (Firebird, #3)

I was trying to find something with actual food on it, but I failed. Instead I got a whole different kind of beauty to present to you. The Firebird series has some of the most gorgeous covers out there. I cannot wait to read this one!

CORN MAZE

A book that’s so much fun to get lost in

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)

The Raven Cycle as a whole is a series to cherish, but while reading the Dream Thieves, I felt so very connected with the boys and Blue. It’s like I had been a member of their group all along.

HAUNTED HOUSES

A book that scared you silly

Morning Star (Red Rising, #3)

Hmmm … I don’t really do scary, but in terms of constantly being afraid for my babies, Morning Star is still on the top of that list. Pierce Brown gave me some serious trust issues (I am just going to pretend I didn’t have before) and I was crying because of that book!

 

PUMPKIN PATCH

The latest book you picked up (purchased)

It’s been a while to be honest. I have this massive physical TBR pile staring at me, so unless I get that one a little smaller, I won’t be allowed to buy anything new. However, last month I went on a mini book buying binge.

 

SCENIC DRIVES

A book that is lyrically beautiful

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

Shatter Me definitely isn’t for everyone, but as to this day, I cannot get over how unique and beautiful that writing style was.

 

PUMPKIN CARVING

A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up

The Movie Version

I would never harm a book, not even the ones I really dislike (although I may or may not have thrown one across the room once). Since I had to choose though, I went with The Movie Version. I just wasn’t very happy with the portrayal of the mental health issue at all and that made me quite sad and angry while reading.

 

DRINKING APPLE CIDER

A sweet book to curl up under the covers with

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity, #1)

This is probably a very ME kind of opinion, but I would cuddle up with This Savage Song any day. Just reading about my baby August fills my heart with warmth.

 

JUMPING IN A LEAF PILE

A book that reminds you of your childhood

Bildergebnis für the thief lord gif

Always and forever the Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke! That book, that movie! I was just in love with it all and still am.

 

SCARY MOVIE NIGHT

Your favorite spooky read

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)

Again, I don’t do spooky! But for a lack of better idea I am saying Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. At least the pictures were kinda scary.

 

BONUS! COSTUME PARTY

A book with an eclectic cast of characters

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)

The Girl from Everywhere, because why not?


I TAG

If you’ve already done the tag or don’t want to, just ignore this! And if I haven’t named you specifically, but you feel like this is your kind of thing, feel free to do the tag as well! My tag-posts are always an open invitation for everyone who feels inspired!

  1. I loved getting lost in Raven Boys. And Morning Star was such a clever answer!! The pics in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar children were creepy (I was actually really spooked out by it- but that might be cos I am a bit of a scaredy cat!) Great post!!

  2. Thanks for tagging me for this one, Fall is my favorite season so I can’t wait to get started with this 🙂
    I’d not heard of A Shadow Bright and Burning but the cover alone is fantastic so now I’m off to find out more about the story!

  3. I am doing this tag this weeeeeeek! I love iiiiiit! (yep, I ate too much sugar, I’m over excited xD) The Raven Boys series has this power to make you feel you’re part of the team ❤ I can't wait to read the rest of it!

  4. Thank you for tagging me! 🙂
    I’m the same when it comes to keeping up with tags…or rather NOT keeping up with them! 😄 I’m always late – right now I have over 25 tags and awards to do…which is insane! But, this one I will do soon, as it’s only appropriate to post it while it’s fall.
    The writing style in Shatter Me is seriously beautiful. I think that, beside The Night Circus, it has the most beautiful writing that I have ever encountered. And the pictures in Miss Peregrine’s are very creepy and some even terrifying! Definitely a good choice for a spooky read. 🙂
