I was tagged by Kat of Life and Other Disasters to do the Fall Activites Book Tag (originally created by Dreaming Through Literature). Thanks for tagging me. I love Fall, so I’m putting this tag to the top of my list so I can get it finished during my favourite season while it’s kinda on-topic.
A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it
The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking – This is a lovely looking book, and very different from the kind of thing I would usually pick up to read. Definitely one I want to pick up now the Autumn nights are drawing in.
A book that’s so much fun to get lost in
Mount! By Jilly Cooper is my latest read and is proving to be a lovely distraction. The animals are just as great characters as the humans, and the lifestyle of Rupert Campbell-Black and co is just really great escapism.
A book that scared you silly
The Shining by Stephen King. I thought I was doing so well with this one, thinking ‘it’s not actually that scary’, then Danny went into room 217, and the least said about that the better.
The latest book you picked up (purchased)
It’s been so long that I can’t remember! I have a TBR pile of around 20 or so library books sitting waiting for me, so I daren’t buy anything new. I guess my last book purchase may have been the final Dark Tower book by Stephen King.
A book that is lyrically beautiful
The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters. I love her writing style, it’s totally engrossing.
A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up
I’ve been sitting here for a while now trying to think of a book for this category, but nothing’s coming to mind. I can’t even recall the last book I just gave up on because I wasn’t enjoying it. Hhmm…..
DRINKING APPLE CIDER
A sweet book to curl up under the covers with
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. I only realised recently I’ve never actually read these books, so decided I’d give the first one a try, and I have a feeling it’s going to be a really nice read.
JUMPING IN A LEAF PILE
A book that reminds you of your childhood
I used to be a big fan of Enid Blyton, so any of her Famous Five or Secret Seven books.
SCARY MOVIE NIGHT
Your favorite spooky read
IT by Stephen King. There are so many memorable scary moments in that book. I really want to read it again sometime, but it’s such a long book and my TBR pile is so huge at the moment.
BONUS! COSTUME PARTY
A book with an eclectic cast of characters
A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. It’s such a vast series and there are so many brilliantly written characters, form the heroes to the villains and all those who lie somewhere between the two.
I really enjoyed writing this tag.
As always, if you’ve seen this post and you haven’t already had a go at the tag, feel free to consider yourself tagged.
Until next time…
