“And since we’ve no place to go, let me read, let me read, let me read…” *sigh* I’ll get these songs right one of these days. Until then, join me as I cuddle up with the Fall Time Cozy Book Tag!
I just love the Fall. There’s something magical in the air when the leaves turn their pretty reds and oranges, when the wind hugs your skin in a harsh winter kiss and the crispness of the air is the freshest you’ve breathed since last Fall.
Right now, in Georgia, the weather has turned decidedly cold and I’ve broken out my blue peacoat, my beloved cardinal and gold scarf and my little black mittens that make me feel like my hands belong to a child. In addition to cuddling up with a book this Fall season, I look forward to snuggling on the couch with my hubby, tightly swaddled in my favorite purple blanket while we veg out on Supernatural until our “we’re too old to marathon shows anymore” bed time.
Thank you Joey @ Thoughts and Afterthoughts for tagging me, even though I’m super late and Fall is almost over ^.^
The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges and yellows on the cover.
The cover of Illuminae is gorgeous, it was that and the raving reviews that made me want the book so much. (Yep, I’m a shallow bookworm and definitely do judge books by their covers.) Let me tell you, this book is even more awesome in person. I haven’t started reading it yet, but it’s high on my priority list! Plus, the dedication says it’s for Nic….clearly the authors meant me. ^.^
It’s finally cold enough to don warm cosy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?
Harry Potter will always give me the fuzzies. I have so much love for this series. It was quite literally my entire childhood. I aged with Harry (along with so many of you book dragons) and I’ll never forget the magic that HP sparked in my heart.
The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
I don’t re-read much or, rather, at all. Considering that it storms often here and the simple fact that I read all the time, it’s safe to say that when it does storm, I’m reading either a fantasy or a dystopia.
Cool Crisp Air:
Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Because I’m so unhappy with my own life?!?! I don’t understand this question at all. Most of the characters I read, despite their coolness, I wouldn’t trade places with them. But, hang out with them? Yeah, sure, why not?
The coolest character around the block to me is Mustang from Red Rising. I like her snark, her smirk and her overall badassery. I definitely wouldn’t want her life though.
Hot Apple Cider:
What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
Omg, please just go read Gambit. I can’t talk about this book enough. This book has so many elements to it that my review just doesn’t do justice because I couldn’t turn off fangirl mode, but seriously, the commentary on society is subtle and excellent. Willow is so headstrong and her narrative is so genuine, I love her!
*Rolls on floor in agony* Please read this book!! ^.^
Coat, 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?
Ahh, yes, that would have to be all the adult/erotica I read. Lol, I’m just messing with you. I did most recently get rid of the book that would have fit this category though. I don’t know if I would have been embarrassed necessarily as much as hoping I wouldn’t have to explain the pretty white lady on the cover and the title “It’s Rising Time”. It was a finance book, okay!! Don’t be getting any ideas over there! Lol. But I was never going to read it, so out it went.
What’s your favourite fall time comfort food/foods?
I love me some stuffing. My mom has a killer recipe that I mimic every year. Basically the secret is corn bread and that’s all I’m going to share! Lol. No, I’ll share if you really want me to. The caveat is I don’t actually follow a recipe. I learned how to cook from my mom and she learned from her dad who was the lead cook for a local restaurant in San Antonio, Texas. Suffice to say, that’s how I cook too, it’s all from the heart ^.^
