Finally Fall #booktag

I have a fun book post to share with you all. The fabulous Nicki at Secret Library Book Blog tagged me and while I don’t take part in many of these, this one did look fun. Originally started by Kelsey at there’s something about KM.

It is yet another chance to choose some different books from my shelves that have not been used in other tags 🙂

So without further fuss and ado let me show you my #FinallyFall books…

IN FALL, THE AIR IS CRISP AND CLEAR: NAME A BOOK WITH A VIVID SETTING.

While this is not a cover that screams autumn, it is always nice to be reminded of warmer days when it is cold, wet and horrible outside and this is a fabulous book that has wonderful descriptions of settings, – The Path to the Sea by Liz Fenwick

NATURE IS BEAUTIFUL… BUT ALSO DYING: NAME A BOOK THAT IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN, BUT ALSO DEALS WITH A HEAVY TOPIC LIKE LOSS OR GRIEF.

I read this book a few years ago and it was such a poignant read that by the end of had me in tears – Suite Francais by Irene Nemivovsky

FALL IS BACK TO SCHOOL SEASON: SHARE A NON-FICTION BOOK THAT TAUGHT YOU SOMETHING NEW.

This is another book that I read a few years ago, it is full of facts, info and pictures fabulous reading. – Jack the Ripper – the Facts by Paul Blegg

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.

Growing up I loved Enid Blyton’s Famous Five, I never got on with The Secret Seven! I always wanted to ge like George (Georgina) they had the most fabulous adventures.

THE COLOURFUL LEAVES ARE PILING UP ON THE GROUND: SHOW US A PILE OF FALL-COLORED SPINES!

FALL IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR SOME STORYTELLING BY THE FIRESIDE: SHARE A BOOK WHEREIN SOMEBODY IS TELLING A STORY.

I have had this book for 30 odd years and loved reading it, a story of stories – Arabian Nights – The Book of a Thousand Nights and a Night.

THE NIGHTS ARE GETTING DARKER: SHARE A DARK, CREEPY READ.

I read this one in January and it was chilling and dark – The Tattoo Thief by Alison Belsham

THE DAYS ARE GETTING COLDER: NAME A SHORT, HEARTWARMING READ THAT COULD WARM UP SOMEBODY’S COLD AND RAINY DAY.

This is just a brilliant book, I originally read it in instalments as it was released through last year and when it was then released as a complete book I just had to get it _ The Little Cafe at the End of the Pier by Helen Rolfe.

FALL RETURNS EVERY YEAR: NAME AN OLD FAVORITE THAT YOU’D LIKE TO RETURN TO SOON.

This was another favourite from my childhood and I also watched the TV series and loved it, I would love to reread it and see if I can still feel the magic and mystery I felt when I read it as a child – Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce.

FALL IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR COZY READING NIGHTS: SHARE YOUR FAVORITE COZY READING “ACCESSORIES”!

OMG I love wildy coloured fluffy socks and fluffy PJ’s so much and they are perfect for sitting in front of my open fire in while I’m reading! 😍😂

SPREAD THE AUTUMN APPRECIATION AND TAG SOME PEOPLE!

Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt #booktag

I don’t really take part in #BookTags but I had recently seen this tag done on Nicki’s Blog – Secret Library Book Blog who had spotted it on Joanne’s Blog – Portobello Book Blog who had seen it on Book Nut.

The Bookshelf Scavenger Hunt is a great idea and challenges you to find 20 books on your bookshelf, it could be your digital shelf, I chose my physical bookshelves… and just over an hour later I had 20 photo’s because I kept getting side tracked 😂

  1. FIND AN AUTHOR NAME WITH A ‘Z’ IN IT

2. FIND A CLASSIC.

3. FIND A BOOK WITH A KEY ON IT. ( not yet read)

4. FIND SOMETHING ON YOUR BOOKSHELF THAT IS NOT A BOOK.

5. FIND THE OLDEST BOOK ON YOUR SHELF. 1873

6. FIND A BOOK WITH A WOMAN ON IT. (Granny Weatherwax)

7. FIND A BOOK WITH AN ANIMAL ON IT. ( Dinosaurs are animals right!)

8. FIND A BOOK WITH A MALE PROTAGONIST.

9. FIND A BOOK WITH ONLY WORDS ON THE COVER (this is a heavy coffee table book and full of random things)

10. FIND A BOOK WITH ILLUSTRATIONS IN IT

11. FIND A BOOK WITH GOLD LETTERING (sorry it is an ‘almost’ full set and I couldn’t just show one!)

12. FIND A DIARY, TRUE OR FICTIONAL

13. FIND A BOOK WRITTEN BY AN AUTHOR WITH A COMMON SURNAME ( LIKE SMITH)

14. FIND A FAVOURITE CHILDHOOD BOOK ( I did have so many others in mind, then I saw this and remembered how much I loved this one)

15. FIND A BOOK ON YOUR SHELF THAT TAKES PLACE IN THE EARLIEST TIME PERIOD ( year 970, but I know I have others that are set earlier!)

16. FIND A HARDBACK BOOK WITHOUT A JACKET

17. FIND A TEAL/TURQUOISE COLOURED BOOK

18. FIND A BOOK WITH STARS ON ( this was harder than I thought… a lot of books that had stars as the scenery were just white dots depicting stars, but me being me wanted one with proper stars)

19. FIND A NON YA BOOK ( most of my books are Non-YA anyway)

20.FIND A BOOK WITH A BEAUTIFUL COVER (would love a reading spot like this and I love the simplicity of the cover)

This is a great tag to do and I have loved scavenging through my shelves. It is also a chance to share the Book Love and to show what sort of things I enjoy to read, I have a couple on here that I still have to read as well!

If you have enjoyed reading this post and fancy having a go yourself, then consider yourself tagged.

Many thanks for reading my post, a like or share would be fabulous 🙂 xx
