I was recently tagged by Sophie at Blame Chocolate to do the Fall Book Tag. I normally completely forget to do tags (so nothing personal if you’ve tagged me for something and I never got around to it), but fall is my favorite season, so I wanted to make sure I did this one

- Have fun!
Odd and True by Cat Winters
I read a lot of YA fantasy, but Odd and True is refreshing with its blend of fantasy, historical fiction, myth, and real issues. The voice also a refreshing one for a genre where a lot of the prose starts sounding the same, and I enjoyed the relationship between the two sisters.
Firefight by Brandon Sanderson
I’m pretty sure Brandon Sanderson is the master of strong endings, whether its ending a standalone satisfyingly or creating cliffhanger between books in a series. His YA Reckoners series is no exception. The ending to book 1, Steelheart, is gripping, and Sanderson keeps the momentum with his ending to book 2, Firefight. No one makes me want to finish a series like Sanderson.
Witch Wars by Sibeal Pounder
Pounder’s Witch Wars series is non-stop action, but all of its complete fun–even when the villains are being completely evil. In book 1, our protagonist suddenly finds herself competing in a reality show to be the next ruler of a magic world accessed by drain pipes. She is not prepared at all, and shenanigans ensue.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
L. M. Montgomery has always been one of my favorite authors, and part of that is because, even though she can deliver biting social commentary on par with Jane Austen when she wants to, her books always seem so fundamentally optimistic. Anne Shirley has a huge heart and a huge imagination and can always see the good in the world. This book, and the rest of the series, always puts a smile on my face.
Sisters Fate by Jessica Spotswood
I was disappointed when Penguin switched the cover style for Jessica Spotswood’s Cahill Witch Chronicles after the first book (Born Wicked), but only because I liked the initial cover and I liked my series to match. The redesign, however, is still gorgeous, and the final book in the trilogy has a beautiful orange sunset in the background.
Oathbringer by Brandon Sanderson
The third book in Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archives is coming out this November. I loved the first two books in the series, Way of Kings and Words of Radiance, so this is going to be an auto-buy for me.
Anyone who wants to do the tag.
