The Fall Book Tag

fall book tag.jpg

It’s fall! You all know I love fall! So when Larkin at Wonderfilled Reads tagged me to do the Fall Book Tag, I obviously had to do it. I don’t do tags all that much anymore, but this one looked really fun, and I couldn’t resist the fall theme. To keep my answers a bit more original, I’ve decided to only answer with books I’ve read so far this year.

The Rules:

  • Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!! She wants to see your answers!!
  • Use the graphics – if you want
  • Have fun!

Crisp Fall Air – A Book That Felt Fresh and New

I’ve read a lot of really great, original books this year, but if I have to choose one, it’d be Sourdough by Robin Sloan. It is so weird and wonderful, and utterly unlike anything else I’ve read. It was just a breath of fresh air, especially since I’ve been reading so many dark books this year.

Howling Wings – An Ending That Blew You Away

I knew exactly what was coming at the end of Alison Weir’s Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession. But the way she wrote it was seriously mind-blowing. I reread the ending two or three times because it is just so incredible (and more than a little disturbing). I’ve never read anything quite like it, and I loved that Weir managed to surprise me even though I knew what was going to happen.

Comfy Sweaters – A Book That Gave You the Warm and Fuzzies

I have to choose A Man Called Ove for this one. I unexpectedly loved this book, and it is just such a feel-good read. I am so glad I decided to read it. I still feel all warm and fuzzy when I think about it.

Bright Colors – A Cover with Either Red, Orange, or Yellow

For this one, I’m going with Woman Enters Left by Jessica Brockmole. This was one of the biggest surprises of the year for me. I didn’t expect much from this book, but I ended up really enjoying it! And the cover has such a beautiful fall-appropriate color palette.

Leaf Fight – A Book with Non-Stop Action

I haven’t read many action-packed books this year (even the thrillers have been kind of slow). But I guess I can go with Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel. It was definitely fast-paced and incredibly exciting. I really like this series, and am excited for the next book!

Pumpkin Spice – Your Most Anticipated Read

This is such a difficult question. There are a lot of books I’m excited about, but a more unexpected read I’m really looking forward to is Tom Hanks’s book of short stories, Uncommon Type. I’ve heard great things about it (and already have a signed copy preordered). I’m a huge fan of Tom Hanks – and his typewriter collection – so I can’t wait to read some of his writing.

If you’d like to do this tag, then consider yourself tagged.

Happy (fall) reading!

    1. Thanks! I hope you enjoy it! It’s actually part of a series, with novelizations of all Henry VIII’s wives. Not necessary to read in order, but I found Katherine of Aragon gave a lot of insight into the story in Anne.

    1. Thanks! It’s actually part of a series, too. Weir is writing novels about all of Henry VIII’s wives. It’s not necessary to read them in order, but I think I got a lot out of them by reading Katherine of Aragon first.

  1. Wonderful picks, Stephanie! I haven’t started on the Waking Gods series yet, even though I have the first book on my shelf. I’ve heard really good things about it so I hope I enjoy it as much you did!
