The Fall Book Tag!


Sundays seem to be the best time for a tag & since it’s finally beginning to feel like sweater weather, what better tag than The Fall Book Tag created by Shanah over at Bionic Book Worm! Shanah has a wonderful blog I’ve found to be a MUST VISIST! whenever I blog hop, with such creative content, book reviews, and book discussions there’s something for everyone 🙂

The rules:

  • Please link back to Bionic Book Worm, as the creator of this tag!! She wants to see your answers!!
  • Use the graphics – if you want 🙂
  • Have fun!

They Both Die at the End by Adam Silvera…by now if you aren’t new to my blog chances are you know my love for Silvera runs DeeeeP! haha! & even though all of his book are notorious for their ability to rip your heart out & tear it to shreds…TBDATE with it’s Sci-Fi element took a different approach by giving you the inevitable outcome in its title. Yes, they do both die at the end but that’s not what this story is about at its core. Uniquely told it will keep you flipping pages while fearing the inevitable til’ the very end. I wrote a Gush Review here.

Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2) by Victoria Scwab & I’m guessing many of you who have already read this one may be giving me all sorts of raised eyebrows lol. The ending did leave me a sobbing mess but I seriously DID NOT see any of it coming! I can’t go into details because this is a sequel in a du-ology but *round of applause* to Schwab because although it devestated me, I now can’t see it ending any other way. I have a spoiler free review here.

I just finished reading Night of Cake and Puppets by Laini Taylor & OHMYGOSH Bookworms!!!! I’m not big into romance or easily get the fuzzies for any of the love scenes I’ve come across in the books I digest. That being said, Zuzana & Mike’s love story had me smiling all throughout! I’m talkin’ school girl moments of “awwwww” & “omg I wish my first date was this cute” haha! what makes this even more odd is that as much as I’m not into romance, neither is Zuzana & so seeing her outside of her comfort zone was like I was doing so right along with her. I have a GUSH review for this novella here, it follows book 2 in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. It does not spoil the trilogy & can be read alone, it will however spike your interest in the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy 😉

This one actually made me giggle lol. So in Shanah’s tag she mentions Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi as being one that she’s been talking about quite a bit. Whelp! it’s my pick for this prompt because I’ve been eyeing it these past couple of days to get my Diverse Fiction fill for the mth. I went as far as ordering the U.K. edition some time last year & it’s SOOOOO BEAUTIFUL! High time I get to this book so thank you Shanah for the bit of encouragement your tag has given me <3!

Recently I had the opportunity to read & review a eGalley copy of The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee (review herewhich was so much fun! for fans of the Percy Jackson series, this is the book for you. For those looking to diversify their reading, Genie Lo is inspired from the Chinese tale of the Monkey King. I LOVED the humor & action in this book and I’m looking forward to more from this author 🙂

 

Hands down the honor goes to The Girl in the Tower (The Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden  which is the sequel to last years favorite The Bear and the Nightingale (see my review here). I was thrilled to be granted access to a eGalley & now I wait for the perfect Fall/Winter night to start this atmospheric lush read *eeeeK*

  1. Oh I’m so glad you enjoyed Night of Cakes & Puppets ❤ Zuzana and Mik are easily one of my favorite couples ever, and favorite characters as well. I listened to the audiobook for book one and two (currently reading book three) and the narrator's take on their voices only made them sound ten times more adorable, if that is even possible.
    My heart was in my throat the entire time for them… And still is. I might pick it up while reading Dreams of Gods and Monsters. They're just absolute goals ❤
    Awesome answers and thank you so much for the tag! I love Fall and this is just perfect timing ^_^

    1. You’re so very welcome & I’m so happy to hear you’re enjoying Daughter of Smoke and Bone! That 3rd Book! 😱😱😱 so worth the slowness of the 2nd book in my opinion lol. Zuzana & Mik are #GOALS🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, think you will 😃💙📚💙

      1. OMG I KNOW!!! I’m only in the beginning and I’m already heartbroken/destroyed/filled with love/ecstatic all at once!
        So if that’s any indication of how much I’ll love it when I finish it, I think I’m totally on the right path 😀

  2. Thanks so much for the tag Lilly! I’ll have to get around to this one soon given it’s not Fall for long (nearly Winter and Christmas!)
    I really love your answers as well. I’m hoping to start They Both Die at the End soon, and I can’t wait for Adam Silvera’s writing to break my heart all over again. I definitely agree with you on Our Dark Duet, the ending left me sobbing as well and I still can’t say I’m over it or anything, and Night of Cake and Puppets, Zuzana and Mik are definitely two favourite characters of mine. 🙂
    Great answers, and again thanks for that tag! 😀 ❤

    1. Thank you Marie! Def Read it when you’re NOT feeling sad lol. It is sad but perhaps knowing what will happen from the start, made it more of an edge of your seat type of read. Like a ticking time bomb 😉

  4. Such a cool tag! Fall is my favorite season, so I might just have to do this one. Love all your answers! I have yet to read They Both Die at the End. The concept sounds really unique and touching. Can’t wait to have my heart broken LOL. And I have yet to read The Bear & the Nightingale but I remember all the hype surrounding it when it was first released! I must try to read it soon. And ugh, I LOVE Mik and Zuzana. Their romance is the most beautiful thing. I’d love to read A Night of Cake & Puppets soon. Plus, those illustrations are gorgeous! Great post, Lilly! 😀
