Fall Is In The Air – Book Tag

It’s time for another fall book tag, featuring another set of wonderful questions. Thank you so much Chelsie @ My Reading Escape for tagging me to do this tag. I had a wonderful time answering these questions. If you haven’t already done so you should also definitely check out Chelsie’s page, there are some really fantastic posts over there.

This tag was created by The Book Angel over on Booktube.

Autumn:
A Book With Fall Colors (Orange, Yellow, Red)

I was going to try and find an upcoming release to put here – just so I’d have an excuse to mention one of the many books that I’m looking forward to – then I saw the cover for Grave Mercy and realized how perfectly that fit in with this prompt. Both versions of the cover that I’m familiar with fit in to the colour scheme in question. Plus it’s a series that I really want to get on and read ASAP so it’s still a fantastic sounding book to mention. Also, maybe it’s just me, but the blurb feels as if it could find its home on an autumn book list?

Pumpkin Picking:
Favorite Fictional Food

I’m not sure if I have a favourite fictional food but as this is a fall tag and Halloween is a part of fall I’m going to go with Sweetly for this question. From what I remember it had some mouth-wateringly delicious sounding confectionary within it – one of the main characters owned a sweet shop I believe – and who doesn’t want some sort of candy or chocolate at this time of year? Plus a Hansel & Gretel retelling also somehow feels fitting for a Fall Tag.

Since typing these answers up on Word whilst I had no internet access I’ve realized that I picked Sweetly in a previous tag too. I’m going to stick with it this time – as being a Hansel & Gretel retelling it feels perfect for a fall book tag – but next time that I’m asked for fictional food I shall hopefully have another answer on hand.

Lost In a Corn Maze:
A Book You Got Lost In (A Really Good Book)

Hundreds probably and I’d love to be creative and use a less obvious answer but my heart is telling me to go with Harry Potter for this one. It’s set within the wizarding world which is just such a fantastic setting to lose yourself within. The world feels incredibly real, well thought out and fantastic. I could read the book a hundred times and still lose myself within its pages. So really how could I pick anything else?

Birds Fly South:
What Bad Book Made You Want to Fly South

I really struggled to finish The Bad Daughter and most likely would have given up on it if I hadn’t received it in exchange for an honest review. I think it had a promising start but then it fell apart. I read it a few years ago – and have no desire to pick it up again to refresh my memory – but I believe at one point it used the word ‘said’ so many times on a single page that I nearly threw it aside. Plus the ending should have been fantastic but it was so poorly written and unbelievable and just… yeah, getting through this book irritated me to say the least.

Sweaters:
A Book That Makes You Happy

Oh so many. One of my more recent favourite series – as I’m sure some of you already know – is The Folk Of The Air. The Cruel Prince was one of my 2018 most anticipated releases and when I read it and it actually lived up to my expectations I was thrilled. I love the fae and Holly Black’s take on them in this series. Plus this book made me extra happy as it was the first review book I won a copy of from Readers First. Yay! A pretty fantastic book to start off my book reviewing journey tbh.

Ghost Story:
A Scary/Spooky Book

Wish Me Dead hasn’t gotten a particularly good rating on Goodreads but I actually rather enjoyed it. I’m not sure if my copy was different from the finished book – it was a proof copy that I picked up in a charity shop – but I found the story quite chilling at least. It’s one of those novels that keeps you guessing as to whether the events within them are magical or natural. The crime scenes were rather vividly, and disturbingly, painted. And I definitely remember being a bit scared to turn the page at one point… maybe I’m just a wimp though.

Black Cat:
Favorite Fictional Pet

He’d definitely take offence at being referred to as a ‘pet’ but Reichis from Spellslinger is definitely one of my favourite fictional creatures. I believe the term he likes to go by is ‘business partner’ (although it’s been a while so I’m not 100% sure) and I just love his personality. He’s vicious and violent and yet makes me laugh the majority of times that I see him. Plus, as far as I’ve read in the series, he’s pretty loyal to Kellen too.

Demons:
Favorite Evil/Villainous Character

I love reading about villains so this is such a hard question for me! One that I’d love to learn more about – especially thanks to the glimpses of his past in the sixth Harry Potter book – is Lord Voldemort but I’ve already mentioned that series within this post once. Another evil character who I tend to love – and need to read more versions of – is the Evil Queen from Snow White but I don’t have a particular book version of her to mention here. At the moment my favourite portrayal of her is in Once Upon A Time, the televisions series.

Anyway I think, book wise, I’m going to go with Valentine Morgenstern from The Mortal Instruments for this question. I wouldn’t say he’s my favourite villain ever – I don’t think I could ever pick just one – but he’s one that I thoroughly enjoyed and would love to one day see more of. He’s charismatic, did some truly deplorable things and gathered a following. He’s the sort of villain that intrigues me I’d honestly love to learn more about The Circle’s origins.

Grim Reaper:
A Character You Want Dead

Ooh harsh. It would have to be someone who’s done some truly atrocious things and that I’d still consider to be a danger to others. So maybe Neferet from the House Of Night series? Some of her actions were horrific, she consorted with darkness and could still one day be a threat as far as I’m concerned (or possibly even is as I haven’t had a chance to read the new series yet). So she’s the person who immediately comes to mind for this question.

Halloween Party:
What Book Character Would You Dress Up As?

I love the idea of dressing up but I’m incredibly self conscious and would probably feel too uncomfortable if I did so. If I did dress up I’d probably go for something witchy but I can’t think of anyone specific right now. So perhaps, instead Lady Helen from The Dark Days Club? It’d be pretty cool to dress up in a regency era dress of some sort.


Thanks again for tagging me to do this. Once again I’m going to skip tagging people this time around as I know several people are busy with NaNoWriMo right now and are also probably planning for Blogmas. However if you want to do this tag though then consider yourself tagged and please do link back to me so that I can check out your answers (:

    1. Thanks for tagging me (: and sorry that it took a while, I was trying to catch up on all my tags in order and I had a few from before a hiatus too. I hope we both end up loving it!! ❤️

  1. This is a cool tag and I really love the red colours in the Grave Mercy covers!!!
    The cover for Sweetly has a very halloween-y cover and you don’t hear of many Hansel and Gretel retellings so that’s cool!
    Reichis is a good one for faviurite pet. I saw someone describe him as Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy and I thought that was a pretty accurate description 😂
    I think dressing up as a character would be fun but I would probably feel self conscious as well. I think dressing up as Luna would be fun though!! 😊

    1. Yes I love them too (: I initially preferred the original covers but now I like both versions :L
      Yeah you don’t hear of many retellings for that story. That reminds me I finally found a Pinocchio retelling 😀 It’s out next year but it’s literally the first that I’ve ever seen :L
      I’ve only seen part of Guardians Of The Galaxy – it was halfway through when I went in the lounge – but that seems pretty accurate from what I saw (:
      I’m glad it’s not just me who’d get self conscious :L but yeah that would be pretty cool.
      Thank you for the comment 💖

        Ah.. thats good then!! I look forward to reading the book 😊
        No you’re not alone at all 😂
        Of course!! 💛

  2. Lovely answers for this tag! I have to say that getting lost in the Harry Potter world is the obvious answer for me, too, haha, I just love this world so damn much ❤ and I'm so glad to hear The Cruel Prince lived up to your expectations! I'm only reading it now and… it's an experience, I'd say haha, it is a very unique story 🙂

    1. Thank you (: and yes I think it would be such a wonderful world to get lost within. There’s so many different places to visit within it too so it would truly be amazing 😀 Oh how are you finding it? Or how did you find it if you’ve finished it now? I love the series but still need to read the final one.

      1. I have to say that TCP was…. a little strange to get used to! It took me a while to really get into the story, but that last third of the book had me hooked and really curious about what’s going to happen next 😀

      2. I love books about the fae so I was hooked pretty much instantly but I’m glad that you got into it more at the end (: And I hope that you enjoy the other two, if you read them.
