Welcome to the Finally Fall Book Tag! I found the Finally Fall book tag here: Anne with a Book. Everyone is welcome to participate. If you do take part, tag me in some way so that I can see your answers too.
1. In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
2. Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
The Kite Runner
3. Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
The Art of War
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Based on text from “The Art of War.“
4. In order to keep warm, it’s good to spend some time with the people we love: name a fictional family/household/friend-group that you’d like to be a part of.
The Pevensies of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
5. The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
6. Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
7. The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
Mirrorland is pretty creepy.
8. The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
9. Fall returns every year: name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.
Well, it’s not an old favorite but I’m hoping to finish Three-Martini Afternoons at the Ritz: The Rebellion of Sylvia Plath & Anne Sexton by Gail Crowther before December.
I would also like to continue the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire.
