I was tagged by Michelle at Book Adventures to do this tag, which I’ve actually been wanting to do for a while, because I love all things fall. I’m not up for writing a long intro at the moment, so let’s just get into it!
Apple Picking – A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.
I’m going to have to go with Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I snagged a signed copy at Target last week, and am making myself wait until I finish one of the books I’m currently reading before I start it.
Corn Maze – A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.
I have to go with Harry Potter. Definitely easy to get lost in the Wizarding World, and it’s easily my favorite fictional world. If I could live there, I would.
Haunted House – A book that scared you silly.
The book that holds the record for scaring me the most is The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova. It’s amazing, but it’s so utterly terrifying. It’s not scary in a traditional, horror way, but in a way that makes you doubt your convictions about supernatural things not actually existing.
Pumpkin Patch – The latest book you picked up (purchased).
The last book I purchased was a copy of The String Diaries by Stephen Lloyd Jones. I went to kill some time at Barnes and Noble, and they didn’t have any of the books on my immediate to-buy list, so I ended up picking up this one, because it catches my eye every once in a while.
Scenic Drives – A book that is lyrically beautiful.
A recent read I loved because of the beautiful writing is Nutshell by Ian McEwan. It was my first experience with his writing, and I LOVED it.
Pumpkin Carving – A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.
I have very few one-star books on Goodreads, so if I had to pick one, it would be Champion by Marie Lu. There were just so many issues with this series, but the last book in particular was not my favorite. I still sometimes wonder why I read them all. (I actually ended up selling them back to Amazon.)
Drinking Apple Cider – A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.
My warm and cozy reads are basically just classic romance. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Persuasion… I could keep going, but you get the idea.
Jumping In A Leaf Pile – A book that reminds you of your childhood.
The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. I spent an entire summer reading the entire series, and every time I see that book (I have the bindup), I remember that summer. It was awesome, and it was kind of the beginning of my life as a bookworm.
Scary Movie Night – Your favorite spooky read.
My favorite spooky read is probably The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. It’s just the right amount of spooky, but also fun, touching, creative, and incredibly well-written (like all of Gaiman’s books).
I love the idea of tagging some of my newest readers (thanks Michelle and Heather!), so I’m tagging:
Emily @ A Compendium of Books
Megan @ bookslayerReads
Kira @ kirareadsblog
L @ thelovelyshelf
