Autumn Activities Book Tag

BLEHHHHHHello friends! Today I have the Autumn Activities Book Tag for you all! I am pretty excited about this tag, since I made a new banner / separator-thingy-mabob.

I’ve been looking for a while — I mean, I started looking for Autumnal/Fall tags and anything autumn book related since the middle of August. Thank you, Popular Craft Store for putting out your Halloween decorations out in July.. Anyway! Since I consider summer over once September is upon is, I prepared this lovely tag for today!

I found this tag over on Beth’s blog Reading Every Night, I’d appreciate it so much if you were to go over there and show Beth some love! I only changed a bit of the title, which in her post is called the “Fall Activities Book Tag” and of course, our answers are different.

Let’s get into the tag; I hope you enjoy it!

Apple Picking:

A book on your TBR that looks so great you can’t wait to get into it.

A book that I have been waiting and waiting for, is… well… there are quite a lot truthfully! I’m going to stick with 3 just because right at this moment I am so very excited about them, and as of right now they aren’t out yet! Hey, no one said that the books I talk about have to already be published.

37569318Empress of All Seasons by Emiko Jean; Empress of All Seasons is a YA Fantasy in where there are three points of view. Whom I assume is the main character: Mari, has spent her whole life training to become empress. Mari’s fate collides with that of Taro, the prince who has no desire to inherit the imperial throne, and Akira, a half-human, half-yōkai outcast. … And one last thing… The trials that anyone can enter, are forbidden to yōkai.

I have absolutely no idea what will happen in this novel. I’m not even thinking about what might happen. I don’t want to over excite myself. Phew!

36546857The Lantern’s Ember by Colleen Houck; The Lantern’s Ember is a book that has two points of view, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous. Drool worthy. I can’t help but be drawn to it! What has me so excited about this book is the two main characters: Jack, being what I imagine to be an immortal guard to the underworld. And then we have Ember; the other main character, who is a natural-born witch and is drawn to the underworld like a moth is to light.

What else draws me towards The Lantern’s Ember is the forbidden romance I can smell happening! Eeee! I am very much so looking forward to reading The Lantern’s Ember when the time comes. I just want to make sure that my expectations are kept low.

36672988Shadow of The Fox by Julie Kagawa; Shadow of the Fox has been on my TBR for what seems like a few months now. Again, I’m keeping my hopes for Shadow of the Fox low, so I can hopefully end up enjoying this one. Yet I can’t help having these high expectations! I follow Kagawa on Twitter and let me tell you, she’s retweeting peoples’ thoughts on Shadow of The Fox and I’ve read nothing but great things. Everyone seems to love this book, which in turn is making me very enthustiastic about getting my hands on a copy!

Mostly though, I’m looking forward to reading Shadow of The Fox because the main character is a yokai (what the Japanese call demons). More importantly, she’s half kistune, which is a Japanese fox spirit. I am over the moon excited about reading Shadow of The Fox.

Corn Maze:

A book to get lost in.

35652776Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan; Well, I get lost in many books. However, most of those that I read tend to not stick out afterwards. Upon thinking about it for a short time, I am genuinely recommending Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan. Antisocial has two points of view where we meet Xander and Skylar. Both lovely boys who have a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. I remember Antisocial quite a bit because I found that both Xander and Skylar were truly relatable to me for different reasons: with Xander not really liking people in general, and Skylar, who discovers so much, and faces so much about himself. Antisocial remains one of my favourite books.

Haunted Houses:

A book that scared you.

11710500Red Fox (Experiment in Terror, #2) by Karina Halle; The first book in this series creeped me out, but it was the second book, Red Fox, that made me turn my light on (reading in the dark can sometimes be a bad idea, lemme tell you). I even checked my room to make sure that nothing was there and that my door was closed! Yikes! That book terrified me. I don’t want to get too much into what scared me since the scene that I am talking about is what I consider a major spoiler.

(Red Fox is NOT a Young Adult book, think more along the lines of New Adult)

Pumpkin Patch:

The Latest book you picked up/purchased.

35652776Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan; As I’m writing this, I, literally only 10 minutes ago (after finishing my answer for Corn Maze) purchased a physical copy of Antisocial! I was debating on whether or not I should buy a e-copy but I wanted to be able to physically hold and hug the book. — Yes, I love those characters that much. I can’t wait to take pretty pictures!

Scenic Drives:

A book that is lyrically beautiful.

30969741An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson; The first book that immediately popped into my head was An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. It’s been a while since I picked up and read said book. However, that story reads like a song. I’m not even kidding. I absolutely love Rogerson’s writing in this story. She writes her characters well, and her scenery and level of detail is…superb. I genuinely love this book. The fact that this story is easy to read as well, is just another great thing about this book.

Pumpkin Carving:

A book that you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind cutting up.

Immediately what popped into my head was a book that I severely disliked, and have even ranted about a few times. To save us all the time and effort, since I myself have let my anger regarding that book go, I won’t even mention the title nor the author.

Drinking Apple Cider:

A sweet book to curl up with.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa; I myself, am not really a sweet book kind of person, but, every now and then I’ll pick up The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa and revisit some of my favourite characters. The story isn’t sweet in the normal sense. The Immortal Rules is filled with vampires and fight scenes and lots of dystopia themes all around. The Immortal Rules is not for the faint of heart. The Immortal Rules is, simply put, brutal.

Though there are a few scenes in The Immortal Rules that are quite sweet, in my opinion.

Jumping in a Leaf Pile:

A book that reminds you of your childhood.

287178Greek Myths by Heather Amery; I wasn’t actually much of a reader when I was a child. I had a love-hate relationship with reading. I feel like I’d go a while reading as much as I can and then go months without even wanting to pick up a book. However, one book that I came back to time and time again was Greek Myths (Usborne Miniature Editions) by Heather Amery. I actually have this book to this day! It’s in a box, being kept safe and sound, in my desk.

Scary Movie Night:

Your favourite spooky read.

The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco; Hmmmmmm. What immediately comes to mind is The Devouring by Simon Holt, since that book the first time I read it, gave me chills and made me sleep with a light on for a few nights. However, the book I’m going to say is The Girl From the Well by Rin Chupeco. I love that we get to read from Okiku’s point of view since she’s so badass in her Grudge-like glory.

What I especially love about The Girl from the Well is that Okiku seeks revenge on many ‘a’ people. She is savage in the best way possible, honestly. The right amount of viciousness. I love Okiku, haha.

Costume Party:

A book with an eclectic cast of characters.

30237061Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody; Daughter of the Burning City is what comes to my mind. It’s been a while since I’ve read this book, so my mind is a little foggy on everything that happened, but I do remember some details! I have Daughter of the Burning City on my “re-read” list, since my phone decided to fitz out, and I lost my notes/thoughts on the book. Which makes it harder for me to remember everything about this story.

Living in a circus though, you will for sure have an eclectic cast of characters!

    Great picks for this tag, and wow the books that you picked for the first question all sound amazing. I already had Empress of All Seasons on my TBR list but I’m going to have to add the others as well. The cover for The Lantern’s Ember is beyond gorgeous, and anything Julie Kagawa writes is a must for me. 🙂
    Great post, and again great picks for this tag! 😀 ❤
