Hi, and welcome to a new Tag Thursday!
Fall is by far and wide my FAVORITE season! I mean, spring and summer are ok too (winter is just evil and turns me into a big ball of sadness), but fall is AMAZING. I love the atmosphere so much. The world gets all these beautiful colors, the air turns crisp, the clothes turn cozy and there is magic in the air. Also, there’s Halloween! Have I mentioned I love Halloween already? If not, here’s my daily exclamation: Halloween rocks!
Anyway, since I’m completely in the fall mood, I really wanted to do a fall-themed tag. And thus was discovered: the Fall Time Cozy Time Book Tag!
Crunching Leaves: The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges, and yellows on the cover.
This turned out a lot trickier than I thought it would! I had covers with red, I had covers with orange and even some with yellow. But all three? Umm, not so much.
But eventually I did discover: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver! The second installment in the Delirium trilogy is one of my favorites. I love Lauren Oliver’s writing style so much and I urgently have to try some of her other books.
Cozy Sweater: It’s finally cold enough to don warm, cozy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?
I’m gonna go with Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. This book was just so amazingly cute and fluffy, it made me feel all warm, smiley and cuddley. I guess that’s the perfect recipe for warm fuzzies!
Fall Storm: The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book or genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
Definitely fantasy. There’s something about stormy days that gives me a need for magical, epic fantasy adventures. The best example still remains to this day Harry Potter.
Cool Crisp Air: Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
I’d kind of want to be Manon Blackbeak from the Throne of Glass series. She’s so cool and I’m completely in awe with her. She has become my favorite character in the whole series. The no-nonsense, badass Ironteeth witch, leader of The Thirteen, Wing Leader to the Witch Army, wyvern rider and partner -in-crime to the flower-sniffing Abraxos is a force to be reckoned with. She goes through some major character development throughout the series, and she has firmly established herself as my queen.
Hot Apple Cider: What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
I’m not sure if it counts as under hyped, but I feel like the Under The Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi should have gotten A LOT more praise than it did! I loved this series, but I feel like it got a little lost in the crowd while series such as The Hunger Games and Divergent grabbed all the spotlight in that period.
Coats, Scarves, and Mittens: The weather has turned cold and it’s time to cover up. What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?
I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, I think everyone should just read whatever they like. That said, I do feel a little uncomfortable out in public with most new adult book covers. I read during my lunch break at work, but these books I would not take out there. Nothing wrong with it, but they just feel a little too sexy. They give the impression that you’re reading a book full of sex scenes and ok, they are in there for sure, but that’s not all there is to it. Or maybe I’m just a little bit of a prude…
Pumpkin Spice: What’s your favorite fall time comfort food/foods?
Pumpkin soup! I love me some pumpkin soup! Well, pretty much all things pumpkin.
