Fall Bucket List Book Tag

img_7088Thanksgiving is 3 days away, so it seems like an appropriate time to do this Fall Bucket List Book Tag – seeing as after this week, it’s Christmas time. Sorry, I don’t make the rules. I love Fall, I love the leaves on the ground (as you can tell from my Instagram) but there’s this magic in the air when it shifts over to Winter, and here in Maryland that is happening very quickly! So as a final farewell to Fall – on this blog anyways – we’re closing out the season with this amazing tag created by Read By Tiffany, so thank you Tiffany for the tag and the wonderful graphics! I was tagged by Mari from Musings of a (Book) Girl to do this tag, so I also want to thank her, and you all should go check out her post as well!

The Rules:

  • Link back to the original creator in your post.
  • Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
  • Tag 7 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.

Light a Scented Candle

flawedI’m going to go with the first book that pops into my head, which also happens to be one I’ve read fairly recently – Flawed by Becky Bird. This is a Pride and Prejudice retelling and it was such a fun, cute and quick read that kept me up until 4 AM. It just allows you to turn your brain off and just enjoy!

Drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes

criers warThis is easy – since pretty much every book that has come out this fall is super hyped. I could say The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black, but since I haven’t read it yet, let’s go with Crier’s War by Nina Varela. This was a solid fantasy read, but for me, it didn’t live up to the hype unfortunately. I’m glad I read it and gave it a chance, and I might be inclined to pick up book 2 when it comes out next year.

Go Apple Picking

sisters of shadow and lightOoo this one stumped me, but I know! Sister of Shadows and Light by Sara B. Larson! I kind of love Loukas’ and Zuhra’s budding friendship. He’s the kind of guy that can bring out the right emotions in people, but he does that by pushing all the right buttons. He’s kind of goofy and harmless but clearly loyal. Even though they’ve only just met, I think they’re going to be fast and fantastic friends.

Wear a Cozy Sweater

letters to the lost.jpgEasy. Letters to the Lost by Brigid Kemmerer. I absolutely love this book and its characters. It’s one of my favorite books to reread and I fall in love with it over and over each time I read it. It’s so wonderful and so amazing and it just makes me happy to revisit the characters and the world.

Bake cinnamon Rollss

acomaf.jpgHonestly, I have no idea. Like none. I can’t think of a single book that I’ve read where a character cooks/bakes. Have I read any? I have no idea. Is this that phenomenon that plagues readers where all the books they’ve ever read disappears from their minds? Possibly. Legit the only book that comes to mind when I read “A Character Who’s a Talented Chef” is when Feyre offers to make Rhys soup, or whatever in A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas.

So, note to self – I need more books with cooks/bakers in them. Because I don’t think cracking open a can of soup and heating it up counts as being a “talented chef” LOL.

jump into a pile of leaves

MTWCTA book that made me jump for joy? I’m going to interpret that as a book that I received that made me super happy, versus the contents of a book. Let me tell you, when I was able to trade for a UK ARC of More Than We Can Tell by Brigid Kemmerer, I freaked out. Freaked. Out. I couldn’t believe it was in my hands.

    1. Honestly, it feels like just about every 2019 release has been crazy hyped, and the majority (for me) have not lived up to it unfortunately.
      Maryland is getting cold, pretty much all the leaves are off the trees, but probs won’t see snow (or at least decent snow) until Jan. MD winters can either be really cold and snowy, or just cold and wet and the latter is no fun. Everything is just brown then.


  1. Omg yes all the fall releases were super hyped up but for good reason! A lot of these books are so good (at least the ones I’ve read). I haven’t read Crier’s War yet but it’s on my TBR. And thanks for tagging me ☺️
