Autumn Book Tag – Are You Ready For Sweater Weather

I was tagged to take part in the Autumn Book Tag by Emily @Emily the Book Nerd. Thanks for the tag Emily!

This tag was created by Jenn @Jenniely, all tag headers used in this post are from her original tag.

Hot Chocolate: What is your comfort book?

My favourite type of comfort read is typically a cute contemporary YA with a romantic storyline. Especially anything with fake dating or enemies to lovers.

Pumpkin Carving: What is your favourite creative outlet?

I enjoy sewing, knitting and colouring…I wish I was artistic enough that I could draw or paint from scratch but I’m not, so colouring has really been something quite therapeutic in my life.

Falling Leaves: Changes that appear bad that you secretly love.

Every Spring I get sad because here in the Northern Hemisphere the constellation Orion disappears from view… Orion is my fav constellation. I just love gazing up at him in the Winter night sky… so I am sad when I can no longer see him… But then it’s also a good thing because it means the warmth of summer is on its way. So on hand it’s a change I dislike but on the other it means that brighter, sunnier days are on the horizon.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte: Something you love that others tend to judge.

I think a lot of people judge YA and women’s fiction. And I unabashedly love both!!!!!!!!

Bonfire Night: What makes you explode with joy?

My dog. She brings me such happiness. I just love her with all my heart.

Fright Night: Favourite scary book or film.

I do not like scary films and/or books. I get nightmares if I watch or read anything too scary.

Halloween Candy: Favourite sweets to eat.

Strawberry laces and wine gums.

Scarves: Your Autumn must have accessory.

Well this seems a cop out considering the prompt but it is indeed a scarf!! I always have a scarf either wrapped around me or tucked into my bag in Autumn.

Fire: A book or film that burns your soul.

I was completely moved by A Line Made by Walking by Sara Baume. It touched me so deeply that I feel its words are carved on my heart and burned into my soul.

Toffee Apples: A book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside.

I think on the surface a book like The Fault in Our Stars by John Green seems very typical of a YA contemporary but underneath all the romance is truth. Truth of how being sick as a teenager alters your world viewpoint.

That was a fun tag!!! Feel free to do this tag for yourself and if you do pingback to this post so I can read your answers.

  1. I agree with you on YA. A librarian was definitely judging me for my choices πŸ€£πŸ˜… I haven’t read much Women’s lit but I can see why it would get a bad rep. Great answers, Emer!

  2. this is such a fun tag!! i’m definitely going to do it. i definitely agree with you about ya and women’s lit they get such a bad rep but they’re just so nice and soothing and read. I wish you would give horror some love *nudge nudge* it’s not tooooo bad.
