S4S – Books you’d take on an Autumn Walk

Six for Sunday

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness
I read this around autumn last year and I did actually take this out on an Autumn walk so I couldn’t leave it out. I’m hoping to get the second book read before the end of this year with any luck as I really enjoyed the first immensely.

The Near Witch by V.E Schwab
This is another book I’ve taken out on an autumn walk, I spent a good couple of hours in a book shop reading this while the rain poured and the wind howled outside as I sipped a lovely hot chocolate. It was basically perfect.

City of Bones by Cassie Clare
This is a book I genuinely love to snuggle up with and just enjoy reading but because I’ve read it so many times I tend to just flick through to my favourite parts which I could honestly see myself doing a nice Autumn walk.

The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
A great chunk of Tolkiens books just feel like they have this connection to nature and The Hobbit is no exception and this is defintley a book that would fit an Autumn walk.

Hex Life Anthology by Various
I still have to read this (it’s next on my list, Angel Mage is just taking me quite a while to read) but I feel like this would be perfect with all its witchy stories!

City of Ghosts by V.E Schwab
I feel like this is a fairly obvious one as it is full of creepy, spooky vibes that are perfect for an early evening Autumn walk, but maybe not after dark eh?

I think if the weather improves next week I may have to grab a book and go for a nice walk! At the moment it’s just been raining almost non-stop and I don’t want my book to get wet. What books would you choose to take on an Autumn walk with you?

S4S – Fictional places you’d love to go on holiday

Six for Sunday.png

Its Six for Sunday time and this week the prompt from Steph at A Little but A Lot is “Fictional places you’d love to go on holiday” I really miss going on holiday so I feel like this one might be fairly easy for a change although I would probably end up dead or in trouble in one or more of these places for sure.

The Prestigious Academy from the Starlight Watchmaker by Lauren James
I thought about adding so many different schools and/or academies I would love to visit like Hogwarts or the Aurora Academy etc but I opted for The Academy featured in The Starlight Watchmaker by Lauren James because I love how wonderfully diverse and inclusive it is and I would love spending a whole summer there just learning about the students who study there.

The LA Institute from The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare
I’m just such a sucker for that damn beach.

Velaris from A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve always loved Velaris, it sounds absolutely beautiful and was one of my favourite things about A Court of Mist and Fury.

Whitestone from Vox Machina Origins by Matthew Mercer etc
Although I’ve still not finished Campaign one of Critical Role which features the Vox Machina story I’ve become so curious about it and have really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far, especially the city of Whitestone. (I want to go visit the sun tree!)

Sitia (Ideally somewhere near the citadel) from The Chronicles of Ixia books by Maria V. Snyder
Magical, beautiful Sitia! Obviously, some bad stuff happens here (where doesn’t it) but I used to dream about shopping in the market by the citadel when I was younger and meeting Fisk and some of the Grand Masters as well as Yelena and Valek (but in disguise of course!).

The Shire from The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
How could I not choose this one? For a brief moment, I pondered Rivendell, which I’ sure is very beautiful but I’m absolutely a Hobbit at heart and honestly, I think it’s quite likely that if I went on holiday to the Shire I would defintley end up trying to live there.

What fictional place would you love to holiday in? Do any of my answers appeal to you?
