The joy of reading has made me do something which I have never done before. A Book Tag. Well, there is always a first time. While scrolling through the posts, I came across the Finally Fall Book tag by Adventures of a Bibliophile, which was originally created by Alina aka Tall Tales. I thought it would be a perfect way to bid adieu to Fall 2017 by dedicating this post to Fall & Books which coincidentally befalls to be my two favorites.
In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!
Immediately The Lord Of Rings by J.R.R Tolkien popped into my head. Middle Earth is the fictional world I want to live in because of the sole reason for it being vibrant, colorful, full of life and experiences. With the onset of Baggins Birthday Bash in September, this series is a fall pick.
Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.
My pick would be The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. A brilliantly articulated story embracing friendship with the sense of contempt initially and empathy till the end is what makes this novel a must read.
Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.
I have to admit that non-fiction is a genre I am unfamiliar with.I am eager to read some non-fiction though. However, it is challenging to come up subjects that I think would interest me.
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.
Bilbo Baggins of The Shire! Living with the Hobbits has always fascinated me. Their mundane yet celebratory lifestyle is something I would love to experience.
The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.
I am going to go with The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. The uniqueness of this book lies in its storytelling as the author leaps forward and backward with a twist in the tale.
The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read.
For someone who gets frightened quite easily, I wouldn’t be able to give justice to creepy reads. However, I have set my eyes on Dracula by Bram Stroker for my first scary read ever. Thanks to Bookstagram.
The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day.
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri is a diasporic account of a Bengali family. A bumpy ride of tears and joy with a pinch of familial warmth is what made me pick this book in the first place.
Fall returns every year: name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.
My yearly fall return is Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling. With Christmas around the corner, I think I should wrap myself in a Weasely jumper and go for a Harry Marathon.
Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favorite cozy reading “accessories”!
Faint lamps, a woolly blanket, hot chocolate in my hand and floral-scenting aromatic candles around me.
Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people!
Feel free to do the tag if you like(What’s not to like in a Book Tag). Please make sure to keep me in the loop so that I can respond to the posts.
That’s all book lovers. Thanks for stopping by and sticking around. Hoping to do more Book Tags in the future to accelerate my book blogging time.
Happy Reading folks!
