Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today is another tag that I was tagged in by Erika from And On She Reads! Thank you for the tag and I’m sorry it always takes me so long to get to these! We’ve still got a few days left in autumn though so I’m not too late!
1. What book always reminds you of fall/autumn?
I don’t really pay attention to which books occur in what season unless they’re holiday books, but for some reason the first book that came to my mind was A Study In Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro because of its colorful cover.
I wrote a review for this book way back in the day—in fact, I don’t even remember what I wrote about it—and you can find that review here.
2. What is your favorite autumnal book cover?
OOPS I just answered this in the previous question so let me take a look at my shelves to find another option.
I’m going to just go with Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power because it has an autumn-feel to the cover due to how orange it is.
I actually wasn’t a fan of this book which was a shame because I was a huge fan of Rory Power’s Wilder Girls. You can read my review of Wilder Girls here.
3. What is your favorite autumnal drink to read with?
I basically always drink chai lattes no matter what season it is, so I would have to say a chai latte. I know pumpkin spice is the flavor of the fall, but I really don’t like the taste. I tried pumpkin spice lattes several times before and I’ve thought all of them were disgusting lol. I have recently, however, discovered that I’m a fan of hazelnut flavors in my coffee drinks; does that count?
4. Do you prefer to read late at night or early in the morning?
Late at night because I’m basically never awake early in the morning. I have a really hard time waking up at reasonable times no matter what time I went to sleep the night prior, so I’m naturally a night owl.
5. Halloween is coming! What is your favorite spooky read?
Oops, I guess I took too long to do this tag 😂.
I don’t have a favorite spooky read because I’m a huge scaredy cat and like to avoid scary reads as much as I can. The most recent horror book (non-thriller) that I read was The Girls Are Never Gone by Sarah Glenn Marsh.
As usual, this one scared the pants off of me despite being a YA novel. Usually what ends up happening is that I don’t find books scary while I’m reading them, but then I’m terrified of being alone immediately after.
You can find my review for it here.
6. What is the ultimate comfort read for you?
This is one of the only questions that I always have an answer for! My ultimate comfort read is 100% The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. It might seem strange that I’ve labelled it a comfort since it’s a thriller/mystery novel, but I’ve read this book far more than any other book. I think I’m at 6 or 7 reads for this one.
You can read my review of the audiobook here.
7. What is your favorite autumnal reading snack?
I thought this said reading stack and I was very confused. Now that I know it says “snack” I’m still really confused. What the heck is an autumnal reading snack??? In general, though, I don’t like eating while I read anything because I’m bad at putting things in my mouth while keeping my eyes on the page.
8. What is your favorite autumnal candle to burn whilst reading?
I have a lot of bookish candles from book boxes that I subscribe to, but I don’t pay attention to what the scents are aside from whether or not I like them. I burn any candle that smells good and then when that one runs low, I start sniffing the other ones I have to find the next option.
9. When you’re not reading, what is your favorite autumnal activity?
I was born and raised in Hawaii where we don’t have autumn, so I don’t really have a favorite autumnal activity. I do really enjoy stealing leaves from random trees that I walk past in the fall though, because they have such lovely colors that I’m not used to seeing. I’ve also recently learned how to dry plants, so I have a few colorful leaves in a drying rack thing that OwlCrate sent in one of their boxes.
10. What is on your autumn/fall reading list?
Autumn is SUPER close to coming to an end, so I don’t have an autumn/fall reading list anymore. I did have a TBR for the months of October and November, and I succeeded in reading all of the books on that stack except for The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. I guess that would be the only thing on my list then?
I’m not going to tag anyone this round because I delayed on doing this tag to the point where it doesn’t make sense to tag anymore people. However, if this suits your fancy, feel free to do it!
