The Fall Bucket List Book Tag

It’s fall time here in the Northern Hemisphere, fallen colored leaves, pumpkin and big sweaters are back….And, aerm, I hate it. Not as much as I hate winter, but well. Sorry.

That being said, my friend Tiffany created for this season the loveliest tag ever, I couldn’t help but put my downer, seasonal mood aside for the time of this post. We’re talking about lovely, light, fluffy reads and books we adored – because yes, obviously I’m inviting my sister and co-blogger to tag along…. We all need more books recs, don’t we?

☕️ The Rules

  • Link back to the original creator in your post.
  • Feel free to use any of my graphics in your post, or create your own!
  • Tag 7 other people at the end of your post, and let them know you’ve tagged them.


Marie: I’d go with Small Town Hearts for that one, because it is such a wonderful read and one of my favorites, for sure. It’s soft and sweet and heartwarming, with delicious cakes and an adorable love story, yet it also deals with complex friendships, too. I loved it.

Nyx: I’d choose Famous in a Small Town. What is it about small towns really?? This book is an adorable contemporary read about a lovely group of friends. It was sweet, funny and charming. Basically, you end up having a really good time reading it.

Marie: Let’s go with Six of Crows for that one, because it’s one that immediately comes to mind when thinking of a hyped book. I personally enjoyed it a lot, especially this cast of characters.

Nyx: Emergency Contact and I feel like it’s a perfect read for autumn so I’m totally staying on topic! Like any hyped book, I was a bit scared to be disappointed…but Mary H.K. Choi totally delivered. It was relatable and those characters…damn, I loved them! I ended up rating this 5 stars on Goodreads, what else can I say?!

Marie: It’s been a while since I mentioned The Brightsiders and it’s a stunning read, so… let me do just that, okay. I’d say it has pretty fun friendships, because the main characters are in a music band and how much more fun can this get?

Nyx: I’m going to go with Am  I Normal Yet?. It’s girl power all the way! The story talks about three best friends that call themselves The Spinster Club (you need to read it to get it, muhaha). It’s about female friendships that are healthy and supportive and I can’t say I have seen a lot of those in books… It’s not always fun but there is support and trust. The relationships are well depicted and I loved that.

Marie: Heartstopper will always, always be one of these comforting reads that warm my heart. I love Nick and Charlie with all my heart and will protect them with everything I have okay.

Nyx: I’m picking an old one for this question : The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants! This book symbolizes all my teenage years and it warms my heart just thinking about it. It’s about friends and family, love and heartbreak, growing up and letting go. The story moved me and it still does to this day.

Marie: The first one that comes to mind is Lara Jean, because she bakes cookies and all kinds of baked goods and anyone who knows me knows I adore these kind of pastries. I LOVE HER a whole damn lot.

Nyx: Lara Jean for sure! She bakes yummy cookies and all kind of delicious food. I remember being hungry just reading about it! Plus, she’s the sweetest person ever. How can you not fall in love with her?!

Marie: Okay so.. I’m going to take this quite literally and go with If I’m Being Honest, because when I received a copy of the book, I literally jumped for joy and screamed and cried all at one. Also, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read and I adore it and JUST READ IT PLEASE.

Nyx: Just For Clicks! I was SO excited when it came out and I wasn’t disappointed. It has sisters, social media issues and a swoony romance. It’s everything I love combined in one little book. I really enjoyed the ride and if you haven’t read it yet, you should just drop everything and get to it!

  1. First, I want to say a huge thank you for tagging me ♥ This is such a sweet tag, I’m going to love doing it! I loved reading both your answers 🙂 I always smile when you mention your love for If I’m Being Honest, Marie and it’s always a good reminder that I need to get to reading it at some point! I always say this, and I DO want to read it, but I want to read Always Never Yours before!
    I reread The sisterhood of the traveling pants so much as a teenager, I would take it out of the library so much and I don’t remember much, but I remember it made me happy ♥
    That was such a lovely post!

  2. I’m so happy to see you doing the Tag despite not being much of a fall person! I do hope that you’ll be able to find some good things about fall 💕 I definitely agree on The Brightsiders and the Spinster Girls, both are books with amazing friendship groups that I wish I could be part of!! 🥰 Heartstopper is also always very heartwarming and a great comfort read 🙂

  3. Omg thank you so much for the tag!! I’m so excited to write this post up. I think I’m also gonna have to incorporate SoC in this list somehow because I fell in love with it after recently reading it! Seriously way too excited to do this ADORABLE little tag. And yes, I’m definitely all about this time of year :’)

  4. I have so many of these on my TBR so I really hope that I get to them soon. Brightsiders is new to me though so I’ll definitely have to look it up, especially as I loved a band book when I was younger. I really hope I get to Lara Jean soon too, I love the sound of that book and I definitely need to pick up more contemporary novels.

  5. There are so many lovely books on this list!! ❤
    Why do I keep postponing Heartstopper )): I need to get to it asap!
    The weather here has been weird, tbh. It's sunny and warm on some days, cloudy and rainy on others, I can't keep up. I'm excited about seeing snow, likely soon, BUT I feel really down with this weather too!

    1. Ahh thank you Marta, so happy you like our recs! 🙂
      I hope you’ll get to read Heartstopper soon, it is the most wonderfully heartwarming, wholesome story I just love Nick and Charlie so much ❤
      Oh god I'm NOT excited about snow at all 😂😂 but the weather has indeed been a mess here too. I'm just ready for summer to come back 😂

  6. The mention of small town does scream lighthearted reads and I want to read them both so much!! Small Town Hearts has such an autumnal cover and I can’t wait to read it and they both involve friendships– I feel cosier just thinking about these books!!
    Am I Normal? sounds like such a good girl power book and ahh.. I want to read it (especially so I can see why they are called spinsters girls), I want to read more Holly Bourne and supportive friendships are wonderful to read so sign me up!!
    Also Heartstopper sounds like such a wonderful read!! *heart eyes* I can’t wait to read it and see what everyone is talking about!!
    Lara Jean is amazing especially because she bakes– I wish my sister would bake non stop, that would be a dream because then I could eat non stop!!
    There are so many books I want to read on this tag— I really need to get started on them!!
    This is a wonderful tag and I hope it made you feel a little better about fall!! And thank you so much for tagging me!! ❤

    1. AH YES I hope you’ll get to read both these small town books, they’re wonderful, I loved them so very much ❤
      Holly Bourne is AMAZING. I've been loving everything I've read by her so far, she's a fantastic author, I can't wait to hear what you think of her stories! 🙂
      😂 right here with you, we need to bribe our sisters to bake for us and we can eat it all 😂
      You're so, so welcome, looking forward to your answers! 🙂

  7. I love this so much, and I love that you both came up with Lara Jean for one of the answers. 🙂

    Don’t worry, fall is almost over and in six more months we’ll have spring… ish? I really enjoy autumn, but it’s hit or miss depending on the year. Last year, I feel like we jumped right from summer into winter with a couple rainy days for transitioning aesthetics. This year has been a little better – I’d say mid-September through mid-October has been the autumn I wanted. It’s getting cold now though and I am NOT into it. :/

    I desperately must read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants – I feel like it’s making a resurgence lately… I’ve seen a few different bloggers going in for re-reads!

    1. Aww, thank you so so much! We’re happy you enjoyed it 😊 Haha, Lara Jean is the best 😍
      Ugh…six more months until spring?! That’s WAY too long 😭😭 Yeah, I get it! I do like the beginning of autumn with the trees becoming shades of yellow, orange and red, it’s SO pretty!
      YEEES, you do need to read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, you’re going to love it 😁
      Thanks for stopping by 😘


  8. I do like autumn, but it’s not really the “fall” aesthetic that everyone has on instagram here in Australia 😂I mean I wish though. I love the colours! I am a fan of the cooler weather though. Ahhh this tag is so cute and fun! I LOVE so many of these :’) Emergency Contact, Six of Crows, Heartstopper…I need to read Just For Clicks (surely I can squeeze it in this year?!) and If I’m Being Honest!!💖

    1. Ahahah CAN WE SWITCH PLACES HERE PLEASE 😂 You can have the fall aesthetics and I’ll happily get your spring and summer coming aesthetics 😀
      I hope you’ll get to read both books this year, especially If I’m Being Honest, it’s just SO DAMN GOOD 😀


  9. Marie!! Thank you so so much for doing this tag, and Nyx!!! Can I just say that this is the first time I noticed your icon with the umbrella, and I ~LOVE~ how cute it looks, especially next to Marie’s icon?? I loved both of your answers sos so much. I know Small Town Hearts is a summer novel, but I think it’s still super cute and a heartwarming read anytime of the year. I honestly think Six of Crows has a somewhat Fall aesthetic, and Emergency Contact does too. Lara Jean will forever be my favorite baker so I loved seeing on your list too!! ❤ ❤ ❤


  10. I couldn’t agree more with Heartstopper being a book that warms your heart! Every time I read the updates, I just get filled with a sense of warmth and happiness — it’s just so cute and lovely and I adore it. And aah I read The Brightsiders last year and it was so much fun!! The whole squad of friends made me so happy (and I especially loved reading about them as famous people). Wonderful post, Marie and Nyx!! ❤
