TAG: The Fall Book Tag

I have to send a HUGE thank you to my good friend Mischenko over at Read Rant Rock & Roll for nominating me for this tag. It’s been such fun completing it and it’s so pretty too, with all the autumnal colours… (orange is my favourite colour so I’ve loved plastering this post in orange!). Please stop by and visit Mischenko who is awesome!

This tag was created by Shanah fromΒ Bionic Book Worm. All of the graphics used belong to her. Huge thanks for this tag Shannah it’s awesome!

What Goes Down - Natalie K. Martin

I literally just reviewed this at the weekend. This book blew my mind away, it tackles mental health, family lies and family dynamics and it does it all in such a real way, it doesn’t hide from the brutal truth of any of the subjects it is tackling. There is no painting over the subjects so that the reader feels comfortable but in the same vein as a reader, you are completely absorbed and love the characters wholeheartedly.

Godblind - Anna Stephens

This has the cliffhanger to beat all cliffhangers! This got to me so much I messaged the author as soon as I finished the book (well after I’d finished swearing) to make sure there was going to be a book two because the thought that it was all just ending like THAT was unbearable! I met Anna a few weeks ago and had a conversation with her about it over a drink and she said that she’s had a lot of people commenting on how it ended. Personally, I love it when a book leaves me looking for pages that aren’t there, swearing and clawing for words that just aren’t going to appear like this book did. It’s a great sign that I’m totally invested in the story…just as long as another book is coming because if it’s a standalone I may just throw myself off a cliff!

Playing Defense - Aven Ellis

Aven Ellis writes the best sports romance, it’s cute, happy and her latest was probably my favourite yet. I always come away from her books feeling warm and fuzzy (not a feeling I’m accustomed to I’ll admit)!

Blood Bank - Zoe Markham

I think we’re close enough to Halloween to get a Horror on the page! This is a great book about vampires in Swindon! I love ZoΓ« Markham’s work and this book is no exception, so well written with excellent characters who you love to hate.

Blackwing - Ed McDonald

Awesome, just bloody awesome! I think I ground a few teeth down reading this.

Clockwork City - Paul Crilley

There are a lot of books coming up next year but at this point, I think this is the only book left on my list for this year that I will absolutely lose my shit if I don’t get my hands on it! Yes, Hodder, I’m looking at you!

Thanks so much for tagging me Mischenko, it’s been fun doing this one! I will go ahead and tag a few people. As always, sorry if I’ve duplicate tagged (I just can’t keep up with these things) if you don’t do tags, don’t have time etc there is no pressure. And if I’ve not tagged you but you want to take part have at it.

I'm BrizzleLass, I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. This is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me. I enjoy walking, PlayStation, reading, heavy metal, and spending time with my Niece.

  1. Ooooh Thanks for the tag! Blackwing is on my TBR and your reaction to GodBlind as well as the cover art definitely has me intrigued! I’ll have to think about a red, orange or yellow book. Totally going to bump this tag up to do tomorrow. πŸ˜€

      1. I have enquired for books and to go on their lists a few times and it’s always met with silence! 😦 I have followers, I write reviews, I think my blog is OK yet they ignore me and some of the blogs I’ve seen that they send books to! No comment! 😦 It’s released near my birthday (unless the release date has changed) so it would be an ideal gift for me from them, I shall have to tell them that! πŸ˜‰


      2. Haha! Ditto on the birthday. I have to use that line aswell! I have the same problem with other publishers. I’m sure they have their reasons not that I understand what they are.

  2. This is one helluva nice looking tag! πŸ™‚ Love these graphics… I wish I actually liked fall as much… I’m more of a spring person myself πŸ˜€ and I only do winter Estonian/snowy style πŸ˜€ hahaha… gosh, look at me, moaning here over seasons πŸ˜€

    I think I added Blood Bank to my tbr based on your rec and hell yes to Blackwing πŸ™‚ Gosh, I do miss that world and characters…:)
