The Fall Bucket List Book Tag || Tags & Awards

More fall tags?! But of course, there are! I’ve been absolutely loving the fall weather recently, especially since I can start wearing my beanie and oversized sweaters without sweating profusely. And that fresh earthy smell?! OH.MY.GOSH! Anyways, I found this tag on Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books blog the other day and totally forgot how much I love this tag Tiffany @ Read By Tiffany created back in 2019! So here we are … another fun and glorious fall book tag!

The Rules

  • Link back to the original creator in your post.
  • Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
  • Tag 7 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.
Summer of Salt book cover by Katrina Leno. Two teen girls sitting on the beach sand, looking into the ocean view.

Beach Reads by Emily Henry || There are definitely sadder parts to this book, with a lot of serious undertones; but overall, I felt that this was a perfect lighthearted read to get me out of my reading slump! I really enjoyed the characters’ witty personalities and intriguing storylines, especially January and Gus’ individual stories. I’ve been having a hard time with YA literature lately (though I still enjoy it), so it’s been lovely to read contemporary novels about characters similar to my age with issues and concerns I can relate to more.

The Simple Wild book cover by K.A. Tucker. A young woman's back as she's looking into a large field with a forest beyond it.

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan || The movie DEFINITELY helped with the hype of Kwan’s book. Once that movie released, this book literally EXPLODED in the book blogging world. Every bookstore I went to had Kwan’s novel at the very front on the “most popular” shelf. This was one of the first times I actually watched the film before reading the book; and to be honest, I think that’s what helped me understand the book and knowing ALL THE CHARACTERS more. I definitely need to pick up the other two … I NEED MORE NICK AND RACHEL!

milk and honey paperback cover by rupi kaur. Black background with white text and bees.

Heartstopper Volume 3 by Alice Oseman || I think the fact that this book is set in school is the reason why it reminds me of fall. Even though school takes place over every season (not much of summer), I always get that fall vibe from the thought of school. Heartstopper has a great focus on friendship, with more and more friends being added into the mix with each new volume released. It’s a really beautiful group of individuals, all with their own unique personalities and interests.

Crazy Rich Asians paperback book cover by Kevin Kwan. Orange background with side view of woman's face.

Wild at Heart by K.A. Tucker || Yes … I’m going to sound like a broken record, but I am just completely and utterly obsessed with this novel! I adored having Calla and Jonah back, with a few other old characters and some new ones coming into the mix. Seeing Calla and Jonah go through such struggles and finding their ways back to one another was such a beautiful experience. Also … the setting just makes me feel so cozy! Seriously … I just want to pack up and move to Alaska … or maybe British Columbia instead … you get the scenery without as much cold ha-ha!

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman book cover. Black starry night background with a silver and gold hammer on the front cover.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han || I just realized I haven’t read a lot of books that focus on a chef of some sort. And I know it’s more of a side part of Lara Jean’s character, but she’s a pretty great baker! She’s known for a lot of arts and crafts, including the art of baking yummy treats! She’s done it a few times for her younger sister’s school events, which I think is the sweetest thing ever!

Coraline by Neil Gaiman book cover. Black with white writing on it.

Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller || The first book in this series was pretty good, but missing something. When I read the sequel, I couldn’t get enough! I really enjoyed the focus on the different members of Alosa’s crew, especially since we didn’t get as much of them in book one. And Alosa’s character development really intrigued me; I felt like she really grew as a captain in this book, making me fall for her even more. And honestly, what’s not amazing about a crew of mainly women pirates who are seriously epic as ever!

Tag! You’re it!

As always, there’s no pressure to participate! I know you’re supposed to tag 7 people, but I stuck with three (technically 5, since 3 authors co-own Travelling Sisters Book Reviews).

Discussion time!

Let’s talk about fall and books! Have you read any of the books I mentioned above? What are your thoughts on them? Do you agree with my choices?

  1. I loved reading your answers! 😊 I really want to read Crazy Rich Asians! I saw the movie on Netflix and it really made me want to pick up the book! I’m hoping to get the boxset soon! Also, Lara Jean is the absolute best! My copy of the book has some of her recipes in the back that I’m interested in trying out! 😄

  2. This seems like such a fun tag! I love all the fall hype haha. It’s kind of funny that we all go nuts about a season, but I’m all in. I love the changes to your header image and those cute little dividers. They look great! I recently also watched Crazy Rich Asians, which is a bit out of my comfort zone actually (I rarely ever watch anything romance), but I actually really liked it! How similar was the book in your eyes?

    1. Thank you!! My partner did those for me! He’s a graphic designer, which is super handy 😍. I really loved it too! I used to not really like romance but lately it’s my go to. I think I just love anything happy with everything going on in the world haha! The book was similar in the skeleton? But not as much romance to be honest! A lot about the family politics and drama. And a LOT more information!!!
