I can’t stop reading all of the fall book tags floating around the internet lately – it’s honestly one of my favorite things about fall because it makes me even more excited about all the fall things I love – and I was tagged by Shyla at Words and Stitches to do The Fall Bucket List Book Tag! Sadly, I do not live somewhere where I can do all of the fall things (going to a pumpkin patch is not as fun, and wearing a cozy sweater is impossible when it’s ninety degrees in October), so my fall bucket list is mostly just me eating fall things and getting excited when I see one orange leaf outside. But I can still do some of the fall things. Like this tag!

Light a Scented Candle – A Book that is Lighthearted
I completely agree with Shyla’s answer of Sourdough by Robin Sloan – I loved that book! But, for the sake of choosing something different, I’m going with a romance book I really enjoyed recently: Well Met by Jen DeLuca. This book was so much fun!
Drink Pumpkin Spiced Lattes – A Book That Has a Lot of Hype
A book that came out earlier this year and I still see everywhere is The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. And honestly, I fell victim to the hype. I’m glad I read it, because I’ve been meaning to read a Samantha Shannon book – but I didn’t love it.
Go Apple Picking – A Book That Has Fun Friendships
I think I’m going to go with Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston. The friendships in this book are great. I love that they tease each other constantly, but they also support each other always and push their friends to improve. I can’t recommend this book more.
Wear a Cozy Sweater – A Book That Warms Your Heart
Since my answer for questions like this is always Pride & Prejudice, I’m going to switch it up and go with The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Also could totally fit for a book that has fun friendships, because that is definitely one of the elements of the book that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
Bake Cinnamon Rolls – A Character Who’s a Talented Chef
The only one(s) I can think of are Ruth and Idgie from Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. I loved this book!
Jump Into a Pile of Leaves – A Book That Made You Jump for Joy
A book that just made me really happy (even though parts of it were sad) is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. It’s not the happiest book, but it’s so, so good. And I couldn’t help but smile.
