The Fall Book Tag!

I’ve been seeing this tag everywhere and couldn’t wait to do it. This tag was created by Shanah from Bionic Book Worm. All of the graphics used belong to her. I’d like to thank her for creating such a wonderful tag! This is my favorite time of year and I really enjoyed this. Here are some of the blogs I’ve seen recently that have done this tag…

The White Raven

by Carrie D. Miller

I just read this last month and I loved it! It isn’t like any other book I’ve read this year and the story revolves around witches and magick. Perfect for this time of year!

The Kind Worth Killing

by Peter Swanson

This is a psychological thriller that I really couldn’t figure out until the end and I was fairly shocked by it! I listened to this on audible and it’s one of my favorite books for 2017. I was late on this one.

The Bear and the Nightingale

by Katherine Arden

I’m going to go with The Bear and the Nightingale. I read this one earlier in the year when it was still wintry outside and it was just perfect. I loved it. Sadly, I didn’t feel the same way with the second installment.

How about The Pumpkin Cookbook? I just bought this not to long ago and it’s one of my favorite cookbooks this year! It contains tons of recipes using pumpkin. Love Love Love!

Dark Matter

by Blake Crouch

It’s hard to pick just one book for this, but I’ll go with Dark Matter. For me, I just couldn’t put this book down and I raced to the finish. It was a pretty crazy ride!


fall-tag-4

I definitely can’t just pick one! I have at least ten books that I’m highly anticipating, but I haven’t been able to get to them yet due to current reading responsibilities. These three are literally calling my name from my shelf and I look at them everyday.

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden – Book Review + Author Q&A

untitled

Blurb…

At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts grow taller than houses. But Vasilisa doesn’t mind—she spends the winter nights huddled around the embers of a fire with her beloved siblings, listening to her nurse’s fairy tales. Above all, she loves the chilling story of Frost, the blue-eyed winter demon, who appears in the frigid night to claim unwary souls. Wise Russians fear him, her nurse says, and honor the spirits of house and yard and forest that protect their homes from evil.

After Vasilisa’s mother dies, her father goes to Moscow and brings home a new wife. Fiercely devout, city-bred, Vasilisa’s new stepmother forbids her family from honoring the household spirits. The family acquiesces, but Vasilisa is frightened, sensing that more hinges upon their rituals than anyone knows.

And indeed, crops begin to fail, evil creatures of the forest creep nearer, and misfortune stalks the village. All the while, Vasilisa’s stepmother grows ever harsher in her determination to groom her rebellious stepdaughter for either marriage or confinement in a convent.

As danger circles, Vasilisa must defy even the people she loves and call on dangerous gifts she has long concealed—this, in order to protect her family from a threat that seems to have stepped from her nurse’s most frightening tales.
