Quinn's Book Nook the other day and couldn't resit giving it a try. It was created by TallTales on YouTube and is just full of fall-ish goodness. I'm so ready for fall! Not I hate cold weather more than just about anything but I'm so tired of shorts and am ready for sweaters and boots! My one confession - I don't quite get the love for Pumpkin Spice.
In Fall, the air is crisp and clear, name a book with a vivid setting
The Lake House by Kate Morton. The setting in this book is almost a character. I can almost see that neglected house when I close my eyes.
Nature is beautiful ... but also dying. Name a book that is beautifully written but also deals with a heavy topic like grief or loss
The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan. This book deals with so much loss and grief as a small village goes through the early days of World War II but at the same time there's still hope and bits of happiness.
Fall is back to school season. Name a nonfiction book that taught you something new
At Home by Bill Bryson - There's so much information crammed into this book that I learned something new of every page and can not spout all kinds of random facts about how our homes came to be.
In order to keep warm, it's good to spend some time with people we love. Name a fictional family/household/friend-group you'd like to be part of
The Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. Can I just move here? You instantly get two best friends and there's lots of late night cake eating!
Fall is the perfect time for some storytelling by the fireside. Share a book wherein someone is telling a story
Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey - I love the chatty feel of the narration and the only child me always marveled at the idea of having so many brothers and sisters.
The nights are getting darker. Share a dark creepy read
Wicked Deeds by Heather Graham. It has the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe and a murder. And did I mention Edgar Allan Poe's ghost?
The days are getting colder. Name a short heartwarming read that could warm up somebody's cold and rainy day
Somebody's Baby by Donna Alward. This isn't the shortest book but it read super fast. Plus the hero's a veterinarian, there's a large goofy dog, and a crazy feel good romance.
Fall returns every year. Name an old favorite you'd like to return to soon
Sleeping Murder by Agatha Christie. This is one of my absolute favorites and it's been ages since I've read it. I'm really looking forward to getting to it soon.
