Fall Book Tag

Kathy, over at KatiesCottageBooks (a favorite), shared the Fall Book Tag.

~ In the fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting.

The Day the World Came to Town by Jim DeFede

~ Nature is Beautiful . . . but also dying: Name a book that is beautifully written, but also deals with a heavy topic like loss or grief.

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

~ Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new.

The Battle Plan for Prayer by the Kendrick Brothers. I read it, the first time in 2015, and was accustomed to prayer as part of my everyday life. However, this was the first time it was presented to me as a frontline weapon, i.e., use before anything else, in my arsenal to survive and thrive. I’m re-reading it.

~ In order to keep warm, it’s good to spend some time with the people we love: Name a fictional family/household/friend group that you’d like to be a part of.

My first thought is the Bagginses of Lord of the Rings, but they were horribly dysfunctional. LOL! I confess I really want to live in Holiday, USA.

~ The colorful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall-coloured spines.

My favorite fall trees are the sugar maples, with black trunks and red leaves.

~ Fall is the perfect time for story telling by the fireside: Share a book wherein somebody is telling a story.

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

~ The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read.

I don’t do scary stories if I can help it. I don’t keep dark stories. The closest I come are murder mysteries by Agatha Christy or Ellis Peters.

~ The days are getting colder: Name a short, heart-warming read that could warm up somebody’s cold, rainy day.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I prefer the book and the old black and white starring Alistair Sim.

~ Fall returns every year: Name an old favorite that you’d like to return to soon.

Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien

~ Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favorite cozy reading “accessories!”

Soft blanket, hot chocolate, chocolate, cookies, actually, I don’t eat much while I read as I like to keep my books as clean as possible. Crumbs happen.

Spread the autumn appreciation and tag somebody! Have fun!

If you’re reading this, you’re tagged!


  1. I love the Secret Garden–it’s just beautiful. Cheers!

    • I hadn’t thought of the book in a long time, until this tag came along. 🙂

  2. The Secret Garden has been inspiration for every outdoor space I’d had, since I first read it ❤

    • How lovely! ❤
