Hello, world! How are you? And how are your reading going? I may be having some problems with one of my reading, but I hope to sort them out soon. And in the meantime, I am here with a book tag, yay! I know I am a tad late with this one, but we are in fall still, so who cares? I saw this tag on Kristin blog, Kristin Kraves Books and I liked it quite a lot (also, I love Autumn and all things related so… here we are!). I tried to choose just books that I have read this year but… will I be successful? Keep on reading and you will see!
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting!
One of the things that I loved of this series, because it’s the same for this second book and for the first one, it’s the setting. Some parts of this world are so vivid and beautifully descript that it seems to be there! So yep, the setting of Reign of Mist is a vivid (and luscious) one!
Nature is beautiful…but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
Beautifully written it’s a little exaggeration here. It’s not that Going Places is badly written, but it’s not so amazing or unforgettable. But it’s enjoyable and pleasant and a fast reading, and it’s not dramatic, but the author writes about some difficult themes. I copy a short part of my review, that summarizes all of them: “and yet it deals with some important and delicate topics, like the loss and the war, for example. It’s a story about being young, dealing with first love, with friendship and with new responsibilities, and it’s about being old, with the loneliness that can entail but also with the friendship and relationships that are there, and the reality about living with your choices, both in the past and in the present.”
All in all, I think that this is the right book!
Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
To be honest, all non-fiction books that I have read so far have taught something new to me, and that’s a thing that I love about them all. How to Live Japanese was one of the last one I have read and I enjoyed the travel, so here it is!
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.
Okay, here I am cheating a bit and I would choose these three books: Morning Star by Pierce Brown (all the trilogy!) because if we speak about friendship well… we have to keep this series in mind! A Bad Boy Stole My Bra has a marvelous group of friends and two very supportive families, and it was great! And I cannot forget about the manga I am reading at the moment: the friendship in Orange is so sweet and real that it has to be put in there, too!
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
The Great Hearts by David Oliver! In this book we have one of the MC, Calidan, who is narrating the story for us, he tells us about their past, and he’s a great narrator. I obviously need the sequel ASAP, by the way!
The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.
Usually, I don’t find the reading creeping, so I am a bit of a loss here, but I think this one could be a good Halloween reading so here it is! Dracula. Rise of the beast, an anthology about the most infamous vampire ever!
The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
This one! Slothilda is a great cozy read. It’s a funny one, hilarious, sweet and relatable. But it’s also cozy. Ideal if you want to cuddle on the couch with a cup of tea!
And that’s the end! I deleted two questions from this tag, because they required real pics and in this period I don’t have the time. But I left all the bookish questions! And I managed not only to choose books that I have read this year, but I have chosen at least one book for every question that it was an ARC. I am really satisfied!
And that’s all for today!
If you have done this tag link it to me in the comment! And if you haven’t but you wish to, well consider yourself nominated!!!!!!
