Hi, everyone! I know it’s been a hot minute since I’ve last posted (getting ready to go back to college was a struggle, haha). So, I wanted to start out nice and easy with a book tag! I understand that it isn’t quite fall yet, but I always made fall synonymous with September, so here we are.
Here are the rules for this tag:
- Link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!!
- Use the graphics – if you want 🙂
- Have fun!
Without further ado, let’s begin!
1. Crisp Fall Air: a book that felt fresh and new
I’m going to have to pick The Diviners by Libba Bray! Even though I’m only five or six hours into the audiobook, I’ve been loving it. I suppose the aspect of kids having magical powers isn’t entirely new, but the setting (1920s New York) has a great feel to it, and I think the narration is phenomenal. Definitely something that’s new.
2. Howling Winds: an ending that blew you away
Listen, when I read the last fifty or so pages of The Midnight Star by Marie Lu, I’m pretty sure it killed me. I think I knew what was going to happen, but the way that it was executed made it a bit of a tear-jerker.
3. Comfy Sweaters: a book that gave you the warm and fuzzy’s
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli gives me almost all the warm and fuzzy’s. There’s a certain theme/scene that definitely doesn’t (the people who’ve read it know what I’m talking about), but overall, I really love this book. It’s the fluffiest YA book I’ve seen with a gay boy protagonist, and I really enjoyed the movie adaptation as well.
4. Bright Colors: a cover with either red, orange, or yellow
The cover of Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee is so pretty. With the orange and yellow everywhere, it’s very bright and warm. It was on my TBR for this month, but uh. Considering I was so busy this month, I don’t think I’m going to get to it before the end of August. But! There’s always the next month.
5. Leaf Fight: a book with non-stop action
It was so hard for me to put Crooked Kingdom down when I had to work or go to class. I absolutely loved this Six of Crows sequel. The action was non-stop: there were plans on top of plans, and whenever one failed, Kaz and the Dregs would think of another one.
6. Pumpkin Spice: you’re most anticipated read
At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, but I decided to buy it anyway. Now, after I saw multiple people I know gush about it….I’ll admit it, the hype is getting to me, and I can’t wait to read it next.
There you have it: the fall book tag! I tag anyone and everyone that wants to take part in this tag. Happy (soon-to-be) fall, everyone!
Until next time~
