The Finally Fall Book Tag (*whispers*- But it’s freaking winter now!)

Hey Pals!! Today, *dramatic cough* to keep up with the prevailing spirit of the season when the leaves make a pleasing crunch under our feet and we do NOT yet need to get out our rajaiyan thick blankets out and we do NOT need to wear itchy sweaters because it is sooo NOT cold, I am doing The Finally Fall Book Tag πŸ™ƒ.

Jokes aside, I was tagged for this by the wonderful Rachel @ A Bookworm’s Paradise. She has a really lovely site, just perfect for the eyeballs of a bookworm, so you should have a look at it. As for that tag, it’s pretty cool (no pun intended πŸ™‚). So I decided to do it. Here we go then:

1: In fall, the air is crisp and clear: name a book with a vivid setting!

This question had me thinking a lot. But eventually, An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir felt like the perfect answer as I remember reading it and being absolutely mesmerized by the whole story and I was easily able to visualize exactly what was happening right in front of my eyes.

2: Nature is beautiful… but also dying: name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.

Whichwood by Taherah Mafi. If I’m being honest, which I am, I’ll admit that I really don’t like this author’s writing style, it’s too beautiful for me. But as the question said, it is, in fact, beautiful. This book is what reminds me of dark beauty. Our main character, Laylee, is a mordeshoor (one who prepares the spirits of the dead for the Otherworld or something like that) in a land where people do not respect or care for her. Throughout the story, we get to see her learning to make friends and the whole concept of loneliness and friendship is beautifully conveyed by the author.

3: Fall is back to school season: share a non-fiction book that taught you something new

For I Pity Them by our own Aanya @ Potterhead Aanya. This was like my third non-fiction novel if I’m not wrong. But this book provides a completely different outlook on the human emotion termed as “pity”. I highly recommend checking it out, it’s a really lovely book.

4: 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

Weasleys all the way!!

5: The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: show us a pile of fall-colored spines!

Honestly, these looked so cool when I clicked the picture, not so much when I look at them now though πŸ˜‚.

6: Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: share a book wherein somebody is telling a story

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. In this series, a guy named Lemony Snicket is narrating the unfortunate tale of the three Baudelaires. But also, there is some significance to him that we see later in the books (that was as far as I could reveal without spoiling).

7: The nights are getting darker: share a dark, creepy read

I’m a really big scaredy cat if you didn’t know so I tend to keep a considerable amount of distance between the “dark, creepy” stuff and myself πŸ˜‚. Among the few books that I have read that were at all dark and creepy, I’d say The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, which is also like one of my favorite books.

8: The days are getting colder: name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day

The BFG by Roald Dahl. As someone who discovered this author late and did not enjoy majority of his books, I can assure you that this was just remarkable. I loved the entire story, and I loved the friendship bond between Sophie and The BFG. It’s a great story, a must-read.

9: Fall returns every year: name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon

An obvious answer: Harry Potter πŸ˜›.

10: Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: share your favourite cozy reading β€œaccessories”

Um…none πŸ˜‚. Just give me a book and leave me alone and that’s enough for me.

11: Spread the autumn appreciation and tag some people

In my country, fall has passed and it’s winter now. So, I’m not gonna be tagging anyone specific, maybe if I’d done it before, I might’ve. But if you are reading this and would like to do the tag, go for it, consider yourself tagged by me πŸ˜€.

That’s all for The Finally Fall Book Tag. Thanks for reading. Let me a book that gives you fall vibes down in the comments. Stay safe. Ciao!!



Welcome to my site where I talk about all things bookish and from time to time, put my writing skills to test.

      1. I am not afraid that the book will be trash….I am just gonna hope that it’s not…I am mostly scared that my favourite ship (Laia and Elias) won’t sail😭😭😭….or worse someone dies… considering sabaa Tahir’s sadistic nature😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

      3. Aw, I’m so sorry, this was probably the most wrong time to have said it πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚. And I like Elias, but I just preferred laia with kane or keenan or whatever is his name πŸ˜‚.

  2. I mean … technically the winter solstice hasn’t passed yet, so scientifically speaking, I guess you could say it’s still fall πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ And I loved your answers! You’ve given me a sudden urge to reread the BFG – Sophie was one of my big childhood heroines! 😊

      1. Yeaah pretty much I think! Infact I only loved the first few books! Personally I think, 13 books was a bit too long πŸ˜‚
        But overall it was pretty good?πŸ€”

        Have you read all the 13?πŸ₯΅

      2. I know right, i dont read such long series eitherπŸ˜‚.
        Yeah overall, it was indeed pretty good. A bit of a rough ride u know, at some point you just get tired of it but then the excitement and the plot twists come.
        Yeah, I’ve read all the 13, this year only 😁.
        Was a long commitment πŸ˜‚, my biggest achievement in books πŸ˜‚
        Are u planning to pick the series up soon too?


  3. Hey hi Nehal!

  4. I could relate to some of these.

    Family- Weasleys all the day

    Read multiple Roald Dahl Books- The BFG was one of my top two favorite

    Nonfiction- that can be tough due to not being a big fan of them. But loved the one I just finished: Pour Your Heart Into It- all about the founding of Starbucks and how it became so successful.

    Vivid Setting with themes like that- Shades of Magic Trilogy. My favorite series of 2020

    1. Ah, indeed.
      Non fiction is hard for me too, I really love The Gurl With Seven Names (its a greaaaaaaat book, do check it out)
      I still need to read shades of magic!! I was wondering if it has any mature themes?
