The Fall Reading Book Tag!

October 11, 2018

When Kaya did this tag a few days ago, it looked like so much fun that I had to borrow it from her! It was originally created by the Bionic Bookworm!

Fall is my favorite time of the year, even though living here in Georgia (USA), we don’t exactly get much of a fall. My dream is to someday move to a part of the country that actually gets all four seasons (all of my New England and northeast peninsula friends are always bragging to me about how stunning their fall is every year!).

But, I digress. I was going to save this tag for later this month, but I walked outside this afternoon and was hit with a gorgeous, crisp autumn breeze for the first time, this year, and knew I had to go ahead and make a cup of tea, put on some autumnal music, and do this one today. ??

Definitely gotta go with the Danielle Cain series by Margaret Killjoy for this one. It’s a series of horror/fantasy novellas with super diverse characters, and a lot of really cool elements I don’t see elsewhere much, if ever (like a hitchhiking punk-anarchist queer lady as a protagonist, and a creepy three-antlered deer that dishes out punishment on abusers).

If you’ve read the first book in The Raven Cycle, you know that the series opens by telling you something that’s supposed to happen. I, like most readers, spent the entire series waiting for/dreading that event, but the ending of this book threw a twist into the works that I did not expect at all, and I loved it so much.

Actually, I’m gonna go with the entire Illuminae Files trilogy for this. There’s so much action in this series, and never a dull moment, if you ask me!

I realized, while answering this question, that I don’t read very many happy books. ? So, I might be cheating a little here, but I’m going with one of the spin-off short stories from the Captive Prince series. This short story is intended to be read after the 3rd book, and it wraps everything up. It is so gooey, and fluffy, and sweet, and it made me cry happy tears, like… a lot.

I mean, can we talk about how great this cover is? *wistful sigh* Skulls and flowers, talk about my brand. (Also, this duology is SO much fun.)

I decided not to include any ARCs I already have, but if I were including those, I’d also name In an Absent Dream, Dear Heartbreak, and A Curse So Dark and Lonely.

I tag anyone who’s interested in filling this out! ♥ Please link back here so I can read your answers!

    Ahhh, I’m so happy you did the tag!! I love all of your answers!! But honestly, the entire Raven Cycle was just pure insanity at every turn??

    I couldn’t agree more about The Illuminae Files, such a tense and action packed series?

    Lovely answers for this tag! <3 I really liked The Raven King just as well and the series as a whole, such a brilliant series. I also liked Illuminae and how, yes, it was non-stop action, I wasn't bored once while reading it 😀

    I always get so confused by this fall trend on social media at the moment because it’s spring in the southern hemisphere ? i love your answers!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 12, 2018 at 11:53 am

      Bahaha I always forget it’s spring there! A few days ago an Aussie booktuber I follow posted her “winter wrap up” and I legit went “wait WHAT” for a split second before I remembered!

    [Also I’m still ridiculously pissed about A Curse So Dark And Lonely. They never replied to that email of mine either.]

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 12, 2018 at 11:56 am

      I’m legitimately so mad at their UK division for toying with you like that ?????

      • Reply Kathy @ Books & Munches October 15, 2018 at 4:22 am

        Yup; same. It’s like.. “How can a publisher like that be so freaking unprofessional..”

  • Reply Deanna Reads Books October 12, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Ooh I love this tag! Yes, I’m very lucky to experience the fall colors here in Pennsylvania. Although yesterday it was 80 degrees!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 12, 2018 at 11:57 am

      Ooooh, yes, I’ve heard the colors are gorgeous up there! Whoa, that blows my mind a little that it was 80 up there yesterday, though! We actually got a VERY sudden cold snap last night and it’s pretty crisp outside. I’m wearing long sleeves for the first time and I am soooo pleased and cozy. ?

    I can’t wait for Wicked Saints and King of Scars too!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 15, 2018 at 11:56 pm

      They both sound soooo good. I know King of Scars won’t have ARCs, but I’m crossing my fingers so hard for a Wicked Saints ARC!

      • Reply tasya @ the literary huntress October 16, 2018 at 7:48 am

        Sameee ugh they only have “wish for it” button on Netgalley and it still haven’t appear yet on Edelweiss…

  • Reply Norrie October 12, 2018 at 2:09 pm

    Ah, Vengeance Road cover is beautiful! <3
    I finally got Illuminae as well, hopefully will have some time this weekend to start reading it!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 15, 2018 at 11:56 pm

      It really is! I’m such a sucker for anything with skulls. 😛
      Yaaaay! I hope you do (or did) and that you enjoy(ed) it, lol!

    Loved the Raven King! And I’m super excited for Wicked Saints and King of Scars too!

    • Reply Destiny @ Howling Libraries October 16, 2018 at 12:03 am

      The Raven King was so good. <3 So wholesome and pure and just… *wistful sigh* And yesss, I'm really hoping Wicked Saints and King of Scars help us kick 2019 off the right way. 😀
