I was tagged for this, brace yourselves, back in 2017. That is the shelf-life a lot of my tags have to endure until I get to them and I am so incredibly sorry for that. I’m not sure if Beth @Reading Every Night will even see this post now (I miss her on the blogosphere), but I’m doing the Fall Book Tag anyway. The weather is slowly getting colder, I can wear layers again … I just like the transition to this new season and wanted to celebrate that by doing a tag (and I haven’t posted anything else yet this week).

CRISP FALL AIR – a book that felt fresh and new
I’m like 11 pages into this, so maybe not the best judge, but I just get exactly that fresh and crisp vibe from Charming as a Verb. If you’ve followed me for a bit, you will have noticed my utter enthusiasm for Ben Philippe’s first book, The Field Guide to the North American Teenager, and his style of writing that I really enjoy. Everything flows so easy and feels natural.
HOWLING WINDS – an ending that blew you away
This award 100% goes to A Deadly Education, because it was a really fun book to read for me. I liked it a lot, but also felt like it could just be a standalone and then THE FINAL LINE HIT ME! It made me question everything I had just read and I love it when that happens. Seriously cannot wait for you all to be able to read that book too!
COMFY SWEATERS – a book that gave you the warm and fuzzy’s
*me going through my pile of books filled with sadness and misery* – Ah, yes, here we have something!
Tweet Cute was one of those books that just made you smile. The banter is fun and the grilled cheese references WILL make you hungry. But that’s just what you’ll have to endure for a lovely contemporary romcom sometimes.
BRIGHT COLORS – a cover with either red, yellow or orange in it
I’m sure there’s plenty of people who already love and adore Burn Our Bodies Down, but I will never be one of them. Something about that book just rubs me the wrong way and I did not enjoy it. However, it fits the category like a glove!
LEAF FIGHT – a book with non stop action
Another book I am currently reading (and please don’t ask me why I can’t focus on just one book, cause I don’t know) is The Black Veins. There’s magic and road trips and monsters and people getting kidnapped. I’m not even at the halfway mark and so much has happened!
PUMPKIN SPICE – your most anticipated read
This is a bit tricky for me, because I’m at a point in my book blogging life where I just don’t keep very much up to date with new releases. Sometimes something catches my eye, but I have so much backlisted that I would be completely helpless without some of my blogging buddies and blogger blast mails from publishers to keep me up to date.
Something that releases soon though (October 6, 2020) is Spoiler Alert and it sounds so much up my alley:
Marcus Caster-Rupp has a secret. While the world knows him as Aeneas, the star of the biggest show on TV, Gods of the Gates, he’s known to fanfiction readers as Book!AeneasWouldNever, an anonymous and popular poster. Marcus is able to get out his own frustrations with his character through his stories, especially the ones that feature the internet’s favorite couple to ship, Aeneas and Lavinia. But if anyone ever found out about his online persona, he’d be fired. Immediately.
April Whittier has secrets of her own. A hardcore Lavinia fan, she’s hidden her fanfiction and cosplay hobby from her “real life” for years—but not anymore. When she decides to post her latest Lavinia creation on Twitter, her photo goes viral. Trolls and supporters alike are commenting on her plus-size take, but when Marcus, one half of her OTP, sees her pic and asks her out on a date to spite her critics, she realizes life is really stranger than fanfiction.
Even though their first date is a disaster, Marcus quickly realizes that he wants much more from April than a one-time publicity stunt. And when he discovers she’s actually Unapologetic Lavinia Stan, his closest fandom friend, he has one more huge secret to hide from her.
With love and Marcus’s career on the line, can the two of them stop hiding once and for all, or will a match made in fandom end up prematurely cancelled?
I TAG THEE
Since it took me, hold up … checking again, 3 years to do this tag, I just kind of want to leave it open for anyone who wants to join in no the fun. IF YOU READ THIS (and you want to do it) CONSIDER YOURSELF TAGGED!
