Today is Thursday, which means it’s a book tag day! A few weeks ago, I was tagged by the very lovely Erika at And On She Reads to do the Autumn Book Tag, and I’m glad I managed to squeeze it in before winter gets here. I’m not sure who the original creator of this tag is, but shoutout to them because this tag looks like a lot of fun!
What book always reminds you of fall/autumn?
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell always reminds me of autumn because Levi makes his Pumpkin Mocha Breve, which screams autumn to me.
What is your favourite autumnal book cover?
I don’t know if this is my favourite autumnal book cover, but the first book cover that came to mind for this question is Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson. There’s something about the dark colours, the ivy, and the author’s name in orange writing that screams autumn to me.
What is your favourite autumnal drink to read with?
In general, my favourite drink to read with is tea. In the autumn, I tend to drink a lot of chai flavoured or caramel flavoured teas, but I’m also not opposed to a pumpkin spiced latte if someone wants to buy me one.
Do you prefer to read late at night or early in the morning?
I prefer to read late at night because I can curl up and get comfortable without having any responsibilities getting in my way.
Halloween is coming! What is your favourite spooky read?
Since I’m doing this tag so late in the season, Halloween is long gone; however, to answer the question, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman is my favourite spooky read.
What is the ultimate comfort read for you?
I find romance novels to be comforting and at the top of my list is The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.
What is your favourite autumnal reading snack?
I don’t do much snacking while reading, but I love any pumpkin spiced flavour baked good this time of year.
What is your favourite autumnal candle to burn whilst reading?
You might be sensing a theme here, but I’m a fan of pumpkin-scented candles in the autumn.
When you’re not reading, what is your favourite autumnal activity?
I enjoy going for walks in the autumn. I like the cooler air and admiring all of the autumn colours.
What is on your autumn/fall reading list?
There are a lot of books that I want to get to before winter is officially here, but three books I’m hoping to read are A Carnival of Snackery by David Sedaris, The Ex Hex by Erin Sterling, and Operation Angus by Terry Fallis.
