Look at me. Posting ANOTHER blog after a couple of days after my last post. Let’s see how long this mood last. Hopefully till the end of the year. *crossing my fingers*
Today I bring another book tag. This one was really fun and I really enjoyed working on in it. I was tagged by the lovely @Whispering Stories, you all need to check her blog, it’s really good!
Let’s get started then:
Finally Fall Book Tag
-In fall, the air is crisp and clear: Name a book with a vivid setting-
Is there a more ‘’vivid setting’’ than Middle-Earth? I mean look at Rivendell, Lothlórien, Hobbiton, Mirkwood…books? See what I did there? Sorry, I know it was bad.
-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 had a lot of trouble finding a book with those topics. I mean, a lot of YA and Fantasy books that I own have loss and grief topics, but it never is the main focus in the story. But, when I was ready to give up, I remember this book!
Till We Have Faces is a retelling of Cupid and Psyche myth, but from Pysche’s sister point of view. It basically deals with the pain of loosing Psyche to the ”Gods”. This is an amazing book, with a lot meaning behind the story and perfect for any Greek geek (like me) out there. I highly recommend it!
-Fall is back to school season: Share a non-fiction book that taught you something new–
This is my favorite Non-fiction book. I read it when I was in University and I had never been more grateful to the Teacher that suggested it to me. Joseph Campbell is the author of The Hero With a Thousand Faces, which is also a great book and that talks about the famous ”Hero’s Journey”, but in The Power of Myth, Campbell focuses meanly in all the different Myths around the world, their similarities, how they influenced humanity and the importante of Myths now days.
This is an amazing book that I highly recommend reading.It will change the way you see life in general. It’s life changing in so many ways, but you will just enjoy learning about myths and stories from all around the world.
-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 part of-
OMG just imagine being part of the Dregs? I had said it before, and I’ll saying it again: Give me a book of just the Dregs sitting having coffee and I’ll read it (and probably love it).
Honestly, I’ll just be happy to eat waffle with Nina.
-The colourful leaves are piling up on the ground: Show us a pile of fall coloured spines!–
I wasn’t sure if “fall coloured spines” applied to yellow, orange and red covers, which I thought would be a lot books, so I decided to just use orange covers for this. This was more complicated than I imagine, but I had a lot of fun!
-Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside: Share a book wherein someone is telling a story-
I feel like all books in first person is of someone telling a story? No? Yes? Anyway, Each of Us a Desert is literally someone telling a story to someone. Also, it was an amazing read and I highly recommend it.
I did a review of this book, if you want to check it out and fell in love like I did.
-The nights are getting darker: Share a dark, creepy read-
This books is dark and so creepy, like really creepy. I cannot even start with how creepy it is. I really liked and I highly recommend it, but be prepared to be creep out.
Also, ‘’Vida Mexico’’! (I’m Mexican btw)
-The days are getting colder: Name a short, heartwarming read that could warm up somebody’s cold and rainy day-
If you are not warm in a cold rainy day by this story, then you don’t have a heart. I mean, that is the only explanation why someone wouldn’t like this comic…right?
-Fall returns every year: Name an old favourite that you’d like to return to soon-
Being completely honest, I’m always prepared to read any Percy Jackson book. I did reread Percy Jackson & the Olympians during the summer, so I’m preparing myself for my Heroes of the Olympus reread.
By the way, if you haven’t read Rick Riordan book, please do. BEST BOOKS EVER! (I’m a huge PJO fan. If that didn’t ended up being clear.)
-Fall is the perfect time for cozy reading nights: Share your favourite cozy reading “accessories”!-
This one is easy: cozy blankets, lots of pillows, nice bookish candles and delicious coffee! (Does coffee counts as an accessory?)
