You know how it goes, you wait ages for a bus and suddenly three come along at once. It seems to have been the same this month with fall-inspired book tags. Not that I’m complaining; I love both book tags and the fall. I was tagged by Alex at Whimsy Pages. Thanks so much for the tag Alex, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.
The world is full of colour. Choose a book that has reds/oranges/yellows on the cover.
The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury
This was a series I discovered quite late, which in the end I was glad of because it meant I didn’t have to wait long for the third and last book in the trilogy to be released. The Scarecrow Queen was the best of the three, in my opinion, and despite the story not having anything to do with the fall the cover definitely fit the theme.
It’s finally cold enough to wear warm cosy clothing. What book gives you the warm and fuzzy’s?
A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares by Krystal Sutherland
Not only was this a book I loved, but it was a book that really surprised me. I expected a light-hearted and fun, maybe even humorous, story but what I got was much more meaningful than that. A Semi-Definitive List of Worst Nightmares has a strong family dynamic, a great sibling relationship, and an incredible and OTP-worthy romance.
The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favourite book or genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee
Basically this book has everything in it that I love reading, especially when the weather outside is stormy and I’m wrapped up warm inside with a good book. The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is full of travel and adventure, magic and humour, great characters and an OTP worthy romance.
Cool Crisp Air:
What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Invictus by Ryan Graudin
One of the main reasons I love time travel books so much is because I love history. So to be able to trade places with Far – to be able to travel back in time, save valuable relics before they’re lost to the world and have wild and insane adventures – would be a dream come true. Basically, I just want to be able to experience history first hand.
Hot Apple Cider:
What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
I’m not sure if this is under hyped, it’s still to be released and I was just lucky enough to get an ARC at YALC, but I haven’t seen many people talking about The City of Brass. This is one of my favourite books of the year, possibly my second favourite, and it was just incredible beyond words. Read it, I highly highly recommend it.
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?
Honestly, I rarely feel like I should keep book covers hidden in public for two reasons; one is because 99% of the time I’m reading on my Kindle, so the only person who would be able to see the cover is me, and two is because after commuting for work every day for over three years I’ve realised people really don’t care what other people do.
London; the city where we all avoid eye contact.
However if there was ever a book cover I would keep hidden it would be one that has the cover models staring out of the cover, like in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
What’s your favourite fall time comforts food/foods?
Home-baked goods. I love baking, and the first thing that comes to mind when I think of fall is baked goods, especially gingerbread men and sugar cookies. There’s just something about the act of baking and the smell of freshly baked cookies in the kitchen that really makes me think of fall.
