The lovely ladies at Thrice Read did this awesome seasonal book tag! It doesn’t quite feel like fall right now here in Virginia, but the leaves are starting to change, we’re decorating for Halloween, and planning for so many amazing things!
Here’s the link to the original post:
A book on your TBR that looks so great you can’t wait to get into it.
The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas.
I can’t tell you how many people have recommended this book, in blogs, in book reviews, and a few personal recommendations, too. This is the next one I’m getting from the library!
A book to get lost in.
The Last Song, Nicholas Sparks.
I love most of Nicholas Sparks’s books. I remember eagerly awaiting for this book to be available from the library. I got it just in time to take it on a long trip to Florida, and the hours flew by in the car with this book. The movie actually wasn’t so bad, either.
A book that scared you.
Catalyst, Laurie Halse Anderson.
I remember being shaken when I finished one. Anderson is an immensely talented writer, and I’ve read all of her books. It wasn’t a horror novel by any means, but it scared me in a real-life kind of way. I identified with the main character, Kate, in several ways, and I felt myself changing several things in my own life after reading this.
The latest book you picked up / purchased.
Camino Island, John Grisham.
John Grisham is one of just a few select authors where I strive to own every book that he will ever publish!
A book that is lyrically beautiful.
Tuck Everlasting, Natalie Babbitt.
I was assigned to read this book in middle school, and we later saw the movie in theaters. I haven’t read it in years, bur I remember the impression it made on me.
A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind cutting up.
Allegiant, Veronica Roth.
I don’t think I need to elaborate my disgust for this book!
Drinking Apple Cider:
A sweet book to curl up with.
The Vacationers, Emma Straub.
Although it took me a good long while to finish it, I ended up loving this book, and Straub’s writing style. I can’t wait to read more from her.
Jumping in a Leaf Pile:
A book that reminds you of your childhood.
The Baby-Sitters Little Sister series, Ann M. Martin.
I loved checking these out from the library, and I owned quite a few of them. I think I eventually read all of them!
Scary Movie Night:
Your favorite spooky read.
The Lovely Bones, Alice Sebold.
Just thinking of this book gives me goosebumps.
A book with an eclectic cast of characters.
The Help, Kathryn Stockett.
If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend it. I wanted to read it as soon as it was announced. I laughed so hard while reading it – It’s so funny, during a tough time in the American South. There are several generations represented, and the whole cast of characters makes for a great read. The movie was excellent, too.
I loved this tag!
What’s your favorite fall activity?
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
