A fabulous book tag for the best time of the year – it’s finally fall, friends! This tag was created by Alina on her booktube channel Tall Tales, so check out her video here and keep reading for my answers.
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty.
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 Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George. As an only-English speaker, I can only attest to the English translation, so perhaps this is a bad choice, but the language in this book is so touching and seamless. Plus, it deals with multiple types of loss or grief, both mediocre, severe, long-term, and quickly passing.
Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan.
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 Beauchamp siblings/family from Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz.
The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
This photo was the first one I took for September (the beginning of fall in my eyes):

I spent the first days of September up at the lake enjoying the summer-like weather, which is to say I can't complain that the beginning of my favorite month wasn't autumn-like. ☀️ But that doesn't mean I can't celebrate the coziness of my favorite season here on #bookstagram! 😎 Although these are the exact opposites of my favorite colors, they sure cheer me up and get me excited for all things fall. Here's to sweater weather, pumpkins of all sizes, colorful leaves, and the return to Hogwarts (cue a 20 years later re-read! 😱).🍻🎃💫 ☆ #bookblog #igreads #books #bibliophile #bookworm #bookish #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #HarryPotter #reading #bookstack
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
The Princess Bride by William Goldman.
The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.
Since it is fresh in my mind, I’m going with Ravens Gathering by Graeme Cumming.
The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
I recommend “The Color Master” – a short story by Aimee Bender or The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis.
Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories”!
A soft fleece blanket, a cozy sweater, apple spice and pumpkin pie candles, my favorite fall/pumpkin spice coffee (not an affiliate link), a notebook and pencil, and some fall dessert (baked by yours truly).
Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people!

Have a lovely fall / autumn / harvest season!
