The Autumn Book Tag

Welp.

Leelynn did another great autumn-y tag.

And she technically tagged everyone.

So, uh…I’m doing it.

And using her graphics.

Again.

Anyway, FALL, am I RIGHT?

Dear Emma was such a lovely read.

It reminded me of the best parts of college.

This book is fairly low-stakes and perfect for fall.

Look.

The Immortalists uses autumn leaves to represent the passage of time.

It’s perfect.

I didn’t get very far into the book, but the COVER is great.

I have been avoiding Slasher Girls & Monster Boys.

Just look at the cover.

Imagine a set of stories that fits that image.

No, thank you.

(Minor spoilers for His Dark Materials)

Note to authors: making Satan your Big Bad is too obvious.

How about THE CATHOLIC CHURCH?

Or God?

Or an angel named Metatron?

His Dark Materials

Preachy, sure, but it’s something different.

What Came From the Stars slayed me with a single paragraph.

I wasn’t expecting such a bittersweet ending from a middle-grade book.

Tears. Falling out of my eyes. Dripping on the pages.

I went from lightly sad to BAWLING in a second.

The chances of The Disenchantments being cute and fun are…minimal.

(It’s a Nina LaCour novel, after all.)

Disenchantments

Will it make my heart burst? Probably.

I meant to read it this summer, but it strikes me as bittersweet.

I ALMOST bought Monster, She Wrote on a whim, but I’m TRYING to be financially responsible (and I’d spent a bunch of money the day before.)

(In my defense…I supported local businesses.)

LOOK AT THIS COVER, THOUGH.

SHOULD I GO BACK FOR THIS BOOK?

SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL MY NEXT POWELL’S TRIP?

IT’S ABOUT THE LADIES WHO PIONEERED SPECULATIVE FICTION.

I showed this book to my brother and he went, “Mary Shelley!?”

EVEN HE WAS EXCITED.

‘TWOULD BE PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN.

I REALLY want that Monster, She Wrote book now.

I’m visiting Portland in a matter of weeks.

If I can hold out till then…I’ll be all right.

Would you like to do an autumn tag?

You have a month-and-a-half.

Go.

    1. I discovered recently that I really love fall, so I’m trying to live it up!
      THANK YOU!!! I had never thought of it either, but I was trying not to pick bees again!!! Also I’m working on a post about demons in fiction because I DON’T THINK DEMONS ARE THAT INTERESTING. Give me evil angels or something!!
