Fall Activities Book Tag

fallactivitesbooktag

I was tagged to do the Fall Activities Book Tag by my wonderful friend Heather from The Sassy Book Geek. Thank you so much for the tag! Please make sure you guys head over and check out her amazing blog (and give her a follow while you’re at it!) 😀

This tag was originally created by Ashley from Dreaming Through Literature, so also make sure to go check out her post as well!

Apple Picking: A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff and Timekeeper by Tara Sim

I couldn’t decide between the two—they are both so tempting! First of all, Nevernight is quite appropriate for this particular tag because Heather was the one who recommended the book to me. I just got my copy in the mail recently and the need to pick it up is strong! Timekeeper isn’t coming out until the beginning of next month, but then I got approved for an ARC! Basically, these are probably going to be my next two reads!

Corn Maze: A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

I enjoy getting lost in any of the Sherlock Holmes novels, but this is my favorite of the series. These novels are extremely easy to get immersed in on so many levels. There’s brilliant, captivating writing, intriguingly plotted and absorbing mysteries—they are perfect for curling up and enjoying on a cold, fall day!

Haunted Houses: A book that scared you silly.

theshining

The Shining by Stephen King

Despite the fact that I love reading spooky stories, I’ve never actually been really creeped out by any. The closest I ever came to getting really scared while reading was with The Shining—things get pretty damn freaky! Stephen King is a total master of the horror genre.

Pumpkin Patch: The latest book you picked up (purchased).

whenthemoonwasours

When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore

This sounded like it would be such a sweet and unique read, so I just had to get myself a copy. I expect to be reading and reviewing this one fairly soon!

Scenic Drives: A book that is lyrically beautiful.

A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness

This book. This. Book. Every single thing about A Monster Calls is absolutely beautiful, but Patrick Ness’s incredible, lyrical writing is the star of the show.

Pumpkin Carving: A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.

The Unfinished Life of Addison Stone by Adele Griffin

This book had SO much potential, but ended up being one of the slowest and most painfully boring reads I have ever had. Now let me just say, never in a million years would I ever carve up a book, no matter how much I dislike it! But let’s just say, if I had a copy of this book and for some reason could not keep it in pristine condition…or if it were to be sucked into a black hole…yeah, not going to be too disappointed by that.

Hiking: A book that was a highly enjoyable romp.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

I love absolutely everything about this novel…and absolutely everything about Mr. Rochester…*ahem* um…I mean the fantastic writing and…um…compelling underlying themes… Seriously though, this is one of my favorite classics and I adored studying it in school.

Drinking Apple Cider: A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.

thephantomtollbooth

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

This was one of my absolute favorite childhood stories, and it most definitely is a sweet story to snuggle under the covers with (something I did on many a night!). It’s such an adorable, fun, easy to love story—plus it’s a total book lover’s book as well!

Jumping In A Leaf Pile: A book that reminds you of your childhood.

hp2chamber thelionthewitchandthewardrobe

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
and
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

This was another I couldn’t choose just one for, though neither of these are probably particularly surprising! Both of these series in general remind me of my childhood, but these are my personal favorites of those series—and they make me feel especially nostalgic!

Scary Movie Night: Your favorite spooky read.

andthentherewerenone

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Again, I’ve never found a novel that really scares me too much, but this is definitely one creepy story. And it’s creepy in a different way from the typical fall/Halloween time reads with ghosts and monsters (the non-human kind, at least!). It’s one of my favorite classics of all time and honestly a perfect story to read this time of year!

Bonus! Costume Party: A book with an eclectic cast of characters.

vicious

Vicious by V.E. Schwab

I’ve read so many wonderful stories with incredibly eclectic casts, but this is one that will always really stick in my mind. This novel holds a very wide variety of vividly portrayed and well-developed characters that truly drive the story. Every single aspect of Vicious is wonderful, but these unique characters really remain with you well after you’ve finished reading.

  1. You’re too sweet Ariana! Thanks for doing the tag I of course loved reading your answers! I can’t wait for your thoughts on both Nevernight and Timekeeper! I also read The Shining and it was freaking terrifying I thought it was way scarier than the movie. 🙂

  2. Timekeeper has an amazing cover! I have put it on my TBR list (hopefully I get it for Christmas)
    The Sherlock Holmes books are some of my favourites, The Sign of Four is the one I enjoyed the most out of the books.
    King is the master of horror- I’ve read one and was scared stiff! (Misery)
    And There Were None is also on my TBR list (too long now!!)

  3. Thanks for tagging me; this looks really fun! 😀 It’s always interesting to see which of the Harry Potter books connected most with people – my personal favourite is Prisoner of Azkaban, and Chamber of Secrets was definitely my least favourite (though of course I still loved it; it’s Harry Potter, after all! 😉 ). That said, I just started re-reading Chamber of Secrets (alongside the Harry Potter & the Sacred Text podcast, which managed to time itself perfectly with the release of the new illustrated edition… ^^’ ), and am discovering something of a new appreciation for it. 🙂

    Also: Nevernight & Timekeeper both look like they have super-intriguing premises. I’m really interested to hear your thoughts on them.

  4. I really love reading the Sherlock Holmes books. They are a lot of fun and they feel cozy to me…if that makes sense! XD I think it’s because I read most of them during Christmas holidays, or it might be because of the writing style. I don’t really know!
    The Shining is a really creepy book! I think it’s my favourite Stephen King book (that I have read so far). I was pretty creeped out during the whole book! Have you read the sequel Doctor Sleep?
    I adore Jane Eyre, it’s my all time favourite classic. I love the way it’s written, Jane and Mr. Rochester are some of my favourite characters. I really adore them both! 🙂
    I haven’t actually read And Then There Were None yet for some weird reason (as I absolutely adore Agatha Christie’s books). I really should get on that!
    Thank you for tagging me! ❤ This tag looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait to do it as well!
