This is a TAG I hadn’t seen before in my few years on the blogsphere, but I came across it back in September in kristinkravesbooks’ blog and I thought the questions were fun and the theme matched the season, so let’s do it! The original creator is

Pumpkin Spice Latte: a book everyone likes to hate on but is delicious
Serpent and Dove by Shelby Mahurin is a book that NOT everybody hates on, but it definitely has very polarizing reviews. I personally see many flaws in the story and plot and I’m not sure I’ll continue reading the series. However, the romance in here is such a good angsty enemies-to-lovers that was so delicious to consume.
“Fall is my favorite season”: a cliché you can’t get enough of
I love a well-written enemies to lovers so much. I just don’t come across one that’s developed enough for my like often.
Sweater Weather to T-Shirt Weather: a book you thought was one thing but was completely different by the end
Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson is a Peter Pan retelling so I was expecting to be just that, a fun retelling from a different point of view, but it ended up being so much more. There is so many important themes tackled in here, and themes that aren’t discussed that much in YA books. We have gender-fluid characters, discussion on colonization, social expectations, disabilties. It ended up being such a meaningful book I will cherish forever.
“Spoops”: do you have a spooky book on your tbr?
I have many spooky books on my TBR since I love to read them this time of the year. Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand is a book I probably won’t get to this year since I have other spooky books on my TBR, but hopefully 2021 will be the year I finally read this creepy novel about three girls in an island where girls keep disappearing and nobody knows how.
Tarot Reading: a five-star prediction
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare is the last book in the Infernal Devices trilogy that takes place in the Shadowhunter world. I’m not the biggest fan of TMI, but I’ve had the time of my life so far with this trilogy and I’m hoping to adore this last installment.
Sephora Sage + Crystal Set: a book that meant well but missed the mark by a landslide
Song of the Dead is the second book in the Reign of the Fallen duology by Sarah Glenn Marsh and I really enjoyed the first book. It’s set in a fantasy world with necromancy and zombies and our protagonist Odessa is a black, bisexual woman that deals with addiction and grief, topics that are very important and were handled really well in my opinion. However, on the second book I feel like the author tried to focus more on the fantasy elements of the story and added too many characters and I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as the first one.
