It’s still November! We can still legit do the Fall Book Tag! We were tagged by Zezee With Books to do the Apple, Pumpkin Book Tag (which was a combo of two tags for her) and by Dani of Perspective of a Writer to do the Fall Time, Cozy Book & Manga Tag (in which she embellished). While they were quite different, they both had to do with fall, so we decided to combine the two into our own awesome mash-up! We alternated answering- can you figure out who answered each question?
From ZeZee’s Tag:
Granny Smith: An overbearingly sweet work or character
Faith is a kick ass heroine that also is super sweet. You go girl!
Red Delicious: A book that would be perfect if it was only judged by its cover
Darkness Becomes Her. Man, the cover is beautiful and the synopsis was so good. But don’t be fooled. It’s a hot mess inside.
Golden Yellow: A book with yellow on the cover
Hark! A Vagrant has awesome riffs on history and literature, and is done so in an intelligent and hilarious manner.
McIntosh: A writer that has influenced or would influence your writing
Isabel Allende! She definitely has influenced my (fan)fiction writing.
Honeycrisp: A book you have read that is in great demand
Written in 1986, this dystopian tale seems so very timely during our current political climate, and still is checked out regularly.
Gala: A work that fits under many genres
Can’t talk enough about it – the Dark Tower series! An intoxicating mix of fantasy, Western, horror, and sci-fi.
Ambrosia: A long work that was easy to follow
The six book series Locke & Key kept me enthralled the entire time. Hoping for more books from this duo and the upcoming Hulu series. (Edit- now Netflix has the rights and is filming the series!)
Pumpkin Soup: A work that you first enjoyed, but then lost interest
The Mistborn series. The first book was great! I could not make it more than a quarter of the way through the second book, though. *yawn* Booooring.
Pumpkin Picking: Within the last year, in which genre did you purchase the most books
Ummm….hello….what is the name of our blog? Graphic Novels of course!!!!!! Pictured is the graphic novel shelves at my library that I do all the purchasing for.
Pumpkin Painting: A book with magnificent illustrations
Need I say more? (Actually, I did. In my review of TSS.)
Pumpkin Ice Cream: The most random work you would recommend
I just finished this photography book by Gregory Crewdson. Filled with surreal photographs that are dark and disquieting. A fascinating book that I looked at over and over again.
From Dani’s Tag:
The world is full of color Choose a book that had reds/oranges/yellows on the cover!
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. Not a bad YA novel. Bonus because it takes place in part in autumn =P
It’s finally cold enough to do warm cozy clothing what book gives you the warm fuzzies?
This is my crazy favorite YA book. Young love in the 80’s…
The wind is howling & the rain is pounding Choose a book that you like to read on a stormy day…
Man, if I’m in the mood to get spooked on a stormy day… this book is it. Beautifully unsettling.
Cool Crisp Air
Makes you breath freely What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Tyleet from the ElfQuest saga is my favorite elf! She’s kind, patient and steady. She’s not a flashy character but the kind of person/elf you’d always want by your side.
Hot Apple Cider
Warm autumn drink What under-hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
*SLAMS FISTS ON THE TABLE* GIVE ME AN 8 SEASON TV SHOW ON THIS SERIES
Coat, Scarves, and Mittens
The weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up What’s the most embarrassing book cover that you’d like to keep hidden in public?
This was an awesome book, but it just screams that I’m a geek for reading it.
Time for some Starbucks What’s your favorite Fall time comfort foods (i.e. genres) and a book/manga that represents them.
Fantasy ❤ Autumn is the best time to read fantasy, imo.
Thanks ladies for choosing us! We are not choosing to tag anyone, because fall is almost over, and our tag is a hopeless muddle of our favorite questions from the tags above. And now that this autumn tag is complete, we are ready for winter- bring it on!
(Okay, Nancy is obviously ready for winter, but I DEFINITELY am not… can’t wait for it to be over!!! I’m so sad autumn is almost finished 😭😭😭 )
