Tag Thursday: Autumn Reading Tag

I was absolutely built for autumn. I’m much more at home in cooler temperatures than I am in the heat of summer, but I don’t particularly love the freezing cold of winter. I also love the change in weather and landscapes autumn brings – it’s the perfect time to wrap up a little cosier and clutch a warm drink in your hands.

So, given my love of autumn, this tag created by Jenniely was absolutely perfect for me. Grab a pumpkin spiced latte and let’s get talking autumnal reading.

Hot Chocolate – what is your comfort book?

The best books for comfort are those you’ve read many times, and you may have brought with you from your childhood. For me, that’s the Babysitter’s Club series by Ann M Martin. These are the books I immediately pick up when I’m in the middle of a reading slump because I just know they’ll perk me back up again. And, because there are so many Babysitter’s Club books, you’re never left looking for one for too long.

Pumpkin Carving – what is your favourite creative outlet?

I started a Book Tube channel back in March, and I’ve really grown fond of it. I do try to post a new video at least twice a week. I’ve started to get into the process of coming up with a new idea, how best to shoot it, what books I can fit into what categories.

Falling Leaves – changes that appear bad but you secretly love?

Are we talking books here? Because if we’re talking books I’m all about the hate to love trope. I love seeing a relationship thaw out from absolute frostiness to love and respect over the course of a book.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte – something you love that others tend to judge

I have a feeling a lot of people don’t give the Babysitter’s Club as much love as I do. It’s definitely got a followership, but it’s not really as well known as a lot of other books out there. If you’re also a BSC fan, please let me know in the comments.

Bonfire Night – what makes you explode with joy?

One of the simplest pleasures in the world is having an evening with no plans. Just having an evening where you can do anything you want in the world is an absolute joy.

Fright Night – favourite scary book or film

I’m not a big horror or gore fan, so I haven’t watched a lot of traditional horror films. I really like psychological thriller films, though, and I really enjoyed Get Out. 

Halloween candy – favourite thing to eat

I have a massive sweet tooth, so anything with a lot of sugar in it makes me super happy. I’ve rediscovered Maoam recently, and they’re just as good as I’d remembered.

Scarves – your autumn ‘must have’ accessory

Perhaps it’s cheating to say the answer in the question, but I do live in scarves once the temperatures drop a little. I’ve also got a mustard yellow coat I’ve loved for the last two autumns and I will definitely be wrapped up in it again this year.

Fire – a book or film that burns your soul

If this is the “anger” type of burning your soul then I do have some books that fit the bill here. One that comes to mind immediately is The Friend Zone by Abby Jiminez. I had some expectations going in to the book, but it missed the mark dreadfully for me.

Toffee apples – a book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside

When people talk about This Is Going to Hurt by Adam Kay, the conversation is often about the humour. What else lies in there is a lot of stories with heart about families, love, and even loss.
