Autumn is awesome! I can’t be the only one that loves autumnal activities- which is why I am so excited to do this fall bucket list book tag!

light a scented candle

my lady jane

My Lady Jane– this funny take on Lady Jane Grey is the epitome of light-hearted! Which is surprising, considering how dark the history is… but never mind that, because even historical-accuracy-stick-in-the-muds (like me) can enjoy the heck out of this book!

drink pumpkin spiced lattes

six of crows

Six of Crows– this book is so deserving of the hype!!! And it’s the kind of dark and atmospheric read that really suits the autumnal months!

apple picking

Harry_Potter_and_the_Philosopher's_Stone_Book_Cover

Harry Potter– I mean, is there another answer? Whether you love the Golden Trio, the Marauders or Dumbledore’s Army, this book is packed with charming friendships.

cozy sweater

goose girl

Goose Girl– this is an older Middle Grade read, but it’s definitely the kind of book that makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

cinnamon rolls

to all the boys

To All the Boys I Loved Before- Tiffany predicted that most people are gonna pick Lara Jean… and I am indeed doing just that! But this book isn’t just about a talented chef- it’s so much more than that! The romance, the family aspect and individuality of the characters all blend perfectly to create the ultimate YA contemporary!

pile of leaves

northanger abbey

Northanger Abbey– ahh Austen always has the power to make me squeal with delight! And this parody of a gothic novel is just right for (us scaredy cats in) spooktober!

That was so much fun! I’m tagging: Kelly, Lucy, Keira, Rachael, Lisa, Bookmark your thoughts, Journey into Books, Kristin Kraves, Green Tea Librarian, Emily @Embuhleeliest, Miminkling and anyone else that wants to do it!

What cosy books you most like for autumn? Let me know in the comments!

 

The Mid-Autumn Festival Tag!

Hello all! I’m having a bit of a chill Sunday and thought it might be fun to do a quick tag 😀

orangutan tag 2

I was tagged by the wonderful Chitra @Books and Strips– really recommend you check her out!

REUNION OF FAMILY

NAME A BOOK WITH FAMILY GOALS

raven boys

Gosh I’m tempted already to just go with Chitra’s answer of the Weasley family, but to be different (and cos it feels appropriate for this time of year) I’m gonna go with Blue’s family in Raven Boys

FULL MOON

NAME A BOOK WITH A WEREWOLF

city of bones new

I really don’t read that many books with werewolves, and, again, to avoid being HP centric for all my answers, I’m going with The Mortal Instruments series- especially cos I rarely bring it up for positive reasons.

MOONCAKES

NAME A KIND OF FOOD IN A BOOK THAT YOU WISH WAS REAL

 

 

Okay, now I really have to go Harry Potter all the way. Not just the obvious ones like Butterbeer and Pumpkin Pasties, I would love if all the food in that series was real. I love the sound of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavoured Beans, Fizzing Whizzbees, Chocolate Frogs… are you sensing a theme 😉 (fortunately you can get very similar things in the real world now)

RABBIT

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE CREATURE FROM A BOOK

 

 

Ooh good question! That’s got to be a Daemon from Northern Lights– because I WANT ONE! Mine would be an ocelot… bookish dreams *sigh*

CHANGE

A CHARACTER THAT MAKES A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE PLOT SINCE HE/SHE DID SOMETHING TOO MANY TIMES

the young elites

I’m going with Adelina from The Young Elites– but I can’t say any of the ways she does this cos of *spoilers*

LANTERNS

NAME A TOY OR GAME IN A BOOK THAT YOU LIKED TO READ ABOUT

 

 

That’s gotta be Thud! from Discworld. And I’ve actually played a real version- it’s so fun!!

AUTUMN

NAME A BOOK WHICH YOU FEEL IS THE BEST TO READ IN AUTUMN

hazel wood

I think a book like Hazel Wood is perfect for this season- it’s slightly spooky, has a fairy tale feel and is atmospheric to boot!

FESTIVAL

NAME YOUR FAVOURITE FESTIVAL IN A BOOK

court of frost and starlight

While I wasn’t crazy about this book, I did like the way Winter Solstice in the Night Court was described. Actually all the festivals described in this series are so lush and evocative- I just wish they were real!

That’s all for now- I tag:

Kelly @Another Book in the Wall, Geronimo Reads, Katie @Never Not Reading, Embuhhlee Liest, Sam @Modern Witch’s Bookshelf, Meltotheany, Kristin Kraves Books, Dany@Perspective of a Writer, Sam @Rivermoose Reads, Bookmark Your Thoughts, Sophie @Blame Chocolate and Paperback and Flick Chick

And anyone else that wants to do it! What’s your favourite festival in a book? Let me know in the comments!
