You probably know by now that I love a good book tag and luckily enough I was tagged a little while ago by Tash over at The Bookie Monsters to do the Fall Time Cosy Book Tag. Let’s go!
#1: Crunching Leaves: The world is full of colour. Choose a book that has reds, oranges and yellows on the cover.
The Soul by S.R. Carrillo is very warm in tone (and gorgeous for that matter).
#2: Cosy Sweater: It’s finally cold enough to don warm cosy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?
Here it is folks; the obligatory Harry Potter answer. Who had bets on it appearing by question two?
#3: Fall Storm: The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favourite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
A dark, stormy day definitely makes me think of a thriller. Something gripping and immersive that makes you want to curl up under a blanket and not emerge until you’ve reached the end of the story.
#4: Cool Crisp Air: What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Emily from Kazu Kibuishi’s Amulet series is pretty cool and she gets to go on some pretty crazy, epic adventures, so that could be fun.
#5: Hot Apple Cider: What under hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
I fell in love with The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan. It did get a bit of buzz within the circle of booktubers who I watch but it still only has around 1500 ratings on Goodreads (I just checked, I’m not weird enough to know that off hand) so it seems to have slipped under a lot of people’s radars. If you like character driven stories with unique settings, beautiful writing and a wonderful blend of fantasy and fairy tale vibes then I think this book will swallow you up, as it did me.
#6: 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?
I don’t read erotica or even romances really (I don’t mind romance in a story but I rarely read a fully-fledged romance novel), so there aren’t any scantily clad women or shirtless men adorning my bookshelves to cringe at. So, there’s the odd cover I don’t really like out of personal taste but none I can think of that embarrass me.
#7: Pumpkin Spice: What’s your favourite fall time comfort food/foods?
I’m a simple tea and chocolate kind of guy (though that’s not exclusive to this time of year). What can I say, I’m a cheap date.
Big thanks again to Tash for inviting me to do this. I’m going to leave it open this time so that anyone who would like to get involved can do so. Happy reading!
