While it’s looking a little more like winter every day, I’m still wanting to be in the fall frame of mind. I just love all the cozy things of the fall and winter seasons, including reading books by the fire!
This book tag is one I saw on my friend Rissi’s BookTube channel and blog. Though I’m not following the video format, I still thought this was a cute tag and a way to talk about all the cozy things with the prompts!
Fall Time, Cozy Time Book Tag
1: Crunching Leaves: “The world is full of color – choose a book that has reds/oranges/yellows on the cover.”
How about a red, orange, and yellow cover?
Lizzy and Jane by Katherine Reay | Still Life by Dani Pettrey
When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham
2: Cozy Sweater: “It’s finally cool enough to don warm cozy clothing: what book gives you the warm fuzzies?”
Oh my goodness, a recent favorite that gave me the warm fuzzies was the delightful contemporary romance Rose in Three Quarter Time by Rachel McMillan. Also, anything by Melissa Tagg or Courtney Walsh instantly belongs in this category.
3: Fall Storm: “The wind is howling & the rain is pounding – choose your favorite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.”
Genre: historical romance!
Something like Sons of Blackbird Mountain by Joanne Bischof or The Matrimonial Advertisement by Mimi Matthews because they have such character depth, vibrant sense of place, etc
4: Cool Crisp Air: “What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?”
Definitely Tzivia Khalon from Ronie Kendig’s “Tox Files” series because…… she’s strong. SUPER smart. An archaeologist. She’s often underestimated because she’s gorgeous, but she can and will kick butt if necessary.
5: Hot Apple Cider: “What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?”
Recently…. Things Left Unsaid by Courtney Walsh. Poignant, emotional, and REAL women’s fiction at its best. Because it’s an indie book, it might be a little under-the-radar for some readers who would really love it AND be blessed by its message. I hope YOU check it out!
6: Coat, Scarves, and Mittens: “The weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up – What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?”
NONE! Maybe an older cover or two from 1990’s fiction that’s just not “appealing” by today’s standards, but otherwise, nope.
7: Pumpkin Spice: “What’s your favorite Fall time comfort food(s)?”
Anything with cinnamon. (But this is me all year longgggg.) I love all the baked things with cinnamon that seem to be season-appropriate, too. Apple pie, apple cinnamon doughnuts, cinnamon oatmeal, cinnamon cookies, spiced cranberry scones, cinnamon toast, and the list goes on…
YOUR TURN! What are your favorite things about fall? What would be your picks for these prompts? Join the tag if you want!
