It’s finally fall in Nashville! The leaves are starting to change, the weather has cooled and I’ve broken out my boots! LOL. The stores are filled with pumpkin spice everything and my favorite Salted Caramel Mocha is back at Starbucks. Yeah! A couple weeks ago, Kelly from Another Book in the Wall nominated me to take part in this fun Fall Reading Book tag. If you want to see how Kelly answered these questions, click the link below, but come back and read mine too! I should also mention that this tag was originally created by Bionic Bookworm.
Let’s get started!
CRISP FALL AIR / A BOOK THAT FELT FRESH AND NEW
The Tower by Nicole Campbell
The Tower is a YA Contemporary novel with hints of magical realism. I found the fact that the teens were witches fascinating. They are not “magical” and don’t ride brooms or hover in the air or anything, although they do read tarot cards, make spells, and can heal spiritually. Each of them having a different talent. These talents are just a part of their characterizations and while their spirituality is within the story, the story does not revolve around witchcraft. I found that really refreshing in a book world where people having magical powers and saving the world is totally common.

HOWLING WINDS / A BOOK THAT BLEW YOU AWAY
Magic Triumphs (Kate Daniels #10) by Ilona Andrews
The reason why I love this heroine so much is because even though she has this incredible power and could do and be pretty much anything she wants, she remains true throughout this series. She wants to have friends, love, and have a home with Curran. A home, not a castle, not as ruler, just as a woman wanting to be with her man. Magic Triumphs stretches Kate further than she’s ever been. As we have seen in the Oracles visions in past novels, Kate knows she will battle her father, Roland, which may cause her son or her husband Curran’s death. She will do absolutely ANYTHING to keep their deaths from happening. This was the perfect conclusion to a wonderful series.

LEAF FIGHT / A BOOK WITH NON STOP ACTION
Edge of Truth (Legionnaires #2) by Brynn Kelly
This novel started off quickly with a jail breakout and was running non stop until the end of the book. Did they defeat their enemies? You need to read this book to find out. I really enjoyed this story. Tess was her own brand of hero, finding a story and not giving up even though her own life came under fire. She and Flynn were not without their problems, but they were stronger together than they were apart. I liked their mix of brains and brawn that didn’t always fall down stereotypical lines.

COMFY SWEATERS / THE BOOK THAT GAVE YOU THE WARM AND FUZZY’S
Beard in Mind (Winston Brothers #4) by Penny Reid
This was a LOVE story full of trepidation, self awareness, and charm. It had a sweetness that was different than the other stories in this series. It didn’t have Duane and Jess’s sizzle, Jethro and Sienna’s humor, and Cletus and Jennifer’s oddity. It was singular in it’s own uniqueness and I enjoyed it a lot.

BRIGHT COLORS / A COVER WITH EITHER RED, ORANGE OR YELLOW
Why Stars Chase the Sun by C. R. Ellis
Both Emmet and Jade were truly nice people who’d had bad things happen to them in their previous relationships. The colors in the sunset above reflect fall perfectly, but they also represent that these two people are ready to find love again.

PUMPKIN SPICE / YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED READ
Nightchaser by Amanda Bouchet
I thought Amanda Bouchet’s Kingmaker series was innovative and wonderful. This new series will be very different as it sounds like it is an action adventure/science fiction novel. I have been lucky enough to receive an ARC and even though the book doesn’t come out until January 1st I will be starting this one soon!
