I love the name of this tag. I think it's so perfect for the weather/season right now. I just want to curl up in a sweater with a mug of something hot and just read forever. I love fall so much. The changing colors are the most gorgeous. I also really love the smell of all of it -- I know that sounds odd, but I swear fall has a smell. There's the obvious like campfires and smores and things like that, but just walking outside when the weather's gotten a bit colder, there's a certain smell, and it's fall to me. Anyway, rant over, Fall Time Cozy Time Book Tag, here we go.
The world is full of color, so choose a book that has reds/oranges/yellows on the cover.
I'm on a simplistic cover kick right now, and I really enjoyed The Help by Kathryn Stockett when I read it (and of course the movie, because Emma Stone). The irony, though, is that on trees, I prefer those trees with the bright red leaves, and the ones that tend to change all at once. So you have that one stark red tree against all the others in various shades of oranges and yellows. That's my favorite. Anyway, really enjoyed this book & movie!
It’s finally cold enough to don warm cozy clothing, so what book gives you the warm fuzzies?
Fall apparently also makes me nostalgic! My cozy sweater pick is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It's my ultimate warm fuzzy story, and it will always be my go to for a wonderful, beautiful love story. (Nobody could tell it like JA).
The wind is howling & the rain is pounding, so choose your favorite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
That's hard. I love to read when it's raining regardless of the genre, but I think I'd have to choose historical fiction. There's something so tangible about the weather and connecting you to the past. Everyone experiences weather even if we have all this new fangled technology that helps us survive better (like seriously, how did people live in the south before air conditioning?).
Cool Crisp Air
What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter by JK Rowling. Truthfully, I just want to live in the Harry Potter universe and the Weasley family is the best family and since she's the only girl daughter, well... there you have it. Also, she's pretty awesome, and I'd love to be her IRL. Who wouldn't? That's what I thought.
Hot Apple Cider
What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. It's not necesarrily underhyped, but it's definitely not exploded across the young adult universe and I just want everyone to read it, and love it. I know it's becoming a movie and that'll really help attention, but I don't want to wait that long. (Patience is not one of my virtues).
Coat, Scarves, and Mittens
The weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up, so what’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?
Well, I don't actually own embarrassing books (total cop out, I only buy my favorites in physical book form because I'm not made of $$ you know). But they're totally on my kindle, and I don't just let anybody go browsing through my kindle shelves for precisely this reason. There's plenty of embarrassing stuff on there! Doesn't mean I have to tell you...
What’s your favorite fall time comforts food/foods?
All of Thanksgiving dinner. Every single dish my family traditionally makes to go with it is what I find myself craving in the fall. Also, soups. I love soup. I could probably have soup every meal of every day. If you could have breakfast soups, I would have soup for breakfast. Mmmmmm.
I never wait to be tagged ‘officially’ when I do these, but if you want to be tagged – then consider yourself tagged! :)
