I was tagged by the lovely Siobhan @ Novelties for the Fall Festival Book Photo Tag (hosted by Danielle @ PoetryBooksYA) which is the second prompt of Bookending Autumn 2019, founded by Clo and Sam! This is my very first tag since I’m a blogging newbie, so hopefully I do this right. I’d hate to leave anyone uncredited.
After perusing the Bookending Autumn 2019 event, I decided to join in! They have a ton of fun prompts for the month of October and you’re only encouraged to do at least three blog posts. Surely I can handle three, right?? And it will be a fun way to dive head first into the book blogging world.
So here we go!
Fall Festival Book Photo Tag
Using fall colors (red, orange, black, white, green) and books you have read or want to read during the fall.
I just finished The Goldfinch a few days ago. Every year I save this one to read in Autumn and I finally got to it this year, although it didn’t feel like Autumn here.
I read A Window Opens a few years ago, and it never really received the attention I thought it deserved. (On a side note, I have a really hard time finding orange books on my shelves whenever there’s a color prompt. To the point that I actually look for orange books when I’m shopping. It’s a silly problem.)
I read The Scorpio Races for the first time in Autumn and it will forever be an Autumnal read for me. If you’ve never read Maggie Stiefvater (then what the heck are you doing with your life???) this is a great one to start with. She’s one of my top five. I’ve been to a book signing, as well as a writing event that she held this past April in Austin. She’s just as entertaining in person as she is on paper.
If you read my Top Ten Tuesday from a few weeks ago, I was bragging (??) about only having one ARC for the rest of the year. Well, the next day I was approved for The Family Upstairs on Netgalley. But I’m not complaining (too much) because it sounds just perfect for the fall!
When you see my last prompt, you may think what is a book set on a beach doing on an Autumn themed post?? Well, Cape May is set at the end of September and into October. It was one of my favorite reads this year and completely took me by surprise. Fair warning: it’s very much an adult novel with definite themes of jealousy.
I Tag: YOU! Since I’m fairly new to blogging, I’m not going to attempt to tag anyone. (How is that even done??? These are the things I’m learning as I go.)
Let me know if you decide to participate. I’m anxious to see your choices!
