Ah, Fall. One of my absolute favorite times of year. In honor of this gorgeous season, here is a lovely tag about fallish books. Thank you so much to Alex @ Whimsy Pages for tagging me and definitely give her lovely blog a visit!
Let’s jump right into it!
CRUNCHING LEAVES: THE WORLD IS FULL OF COLOR – CHOOSE A BOOK THAT HAS REDS/ORANGES/YELLOWS ON THE COVER
The Chalk Man by C. J. Tudor
In 1986, Eddie and his friends are just kids on the verge of adolescence. They spend their days biking around their sleepy little English village and looking for any taste of excitement they can get. The chalk men are their secret code; little chalk stick figures they leave for one another as messages only they can understand. But then a mysterious chalk man leads them right to a dismembered body, and nothing is ever the same.
In 2016, Eddie is fully grown, and thinks he’s put his past behind him. But then he gets a letter in the mail, containing a single chalk stick figure. When it turns out that his friends got the same message, they think it could be a prank . . . until one of them turns up dead. That’s when Eddie realizes that saving himself means finally figuring out what really happened all those years ago.
Sounds creepy and perfect for fall! Unfortunately, this book doesn’t come out until next year, but it’s on my TBR and it definitely puts me in the mood for all things spooky this fall.
COZY SWEATER: IT’S FINALLY COLD ENOUGH TO WEAR WARM COZY CLOTHING – WHAT BOOK GIVES YOU THE WARM FUZZIES?
My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-men-who-want-to-talk-about-Jesus-crazy. She is also Elsa’s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.
When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother’s letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairytales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.
The relationship between Elsa and her Granny is so perfect and reminds me of my cherished memories of my own Grandma. This book absolutely gives me all of the warm and fuzzies.
FALL STORM: THE WIND IS HOWLING AND THE RAIN IS POUNDING – CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE BOOK OR GENRE THAT YOU LIKE TO READ ON A STORMY DAY.
Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
And really, suspense/thriller/mystery are my favorite to read on a dark and stormy day. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend going into it not knowing anything because that makes all of the twists and turns that more exciting!
COOL CRISP AIR: WHAT’S THE COOLEST CHARACTER YOU’D WANT TO TRADE PLACES WITH?
Alex answered the exact same thing, but obviously, my number one girl, Hermione Granger.
HOT APPLE CIDER: WHAT UNDER HYPED BOOK DO YOU WANT TO SEE BECOME THE NEXT BIGGEST, HOTTEST THING?
The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters
My full review of this incredible book can be found here and I need this book to be more hyped because it is AWESOME.
COAT, SCARVES, AND MITTENS: THE WEATHER HAS TURNED COLD AND IT’S TIME TO COVER UP – WHAT’S THE MOST EMBARRASSING BOOK COVER YOU OWN THAT YOU LIKE TO KEEP HIDDEN IN PUBLIC?
When A Scot Ties The Knot by Tessa Dare
On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shyly pretty and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart.
A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter … and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely.
Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He’s wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters… and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.
All of Tessa Dare’s covers are this amazing. Which is why I read them all on my Kindle.
