Fall Time Cozy Book Tag
Hellllllo. I was tagged by Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse to do this tag! (Thank you so kindly.) And what a perfect time for this to go live considering Fall and shiz is happening right now–go figure?
I think I could have went with Sanderson’s other titles as well (i.e. Way of Kings) but Firefight is the most…orange-y looking one I think? Also there’s a lot of kabloomy explosions that happens in this sequel so I guess that also paints the world red…with destruction?!
I’ll go with my most recently read that elicited a lot of feels. The Rest of Us Just Live Here For it’s characters. For it’s plot. For the cats. I will also forever prefer the UK cover edition over the novelty of the glow-and-dark NA version. Well, maybe.
The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favourite book OR genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
I don’t even know what Fall Storms are…? It was snowing just last week. I’d like to think that I’d go binge some television instead LOL. (But I’ll play along anyways).
But in terms of book genres/books: the weather doesn’t dictate my mood for certain titles. It’s the opposite, really. That my mood dictates what I read. So the only answer I can give is “my current read”. Otherwise, a safe bet is something out of SF-F? I’m frolicking around in the fantasy genre right now and it’s amazing.
Cool Crisp Air:
Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
This question doesn’t make sense to me. Wouldn’t you rather trade places with a nobody so you could hang out with said cool character? Some characters I’d love to bromance it up with include Nikolai (Grisha Trilogy), Anonymous (Zeroes), Yarvi (Half A King), The Monster (A Monster Calls) — and this means I’d have to replace some nobody in each story to do so…
Hot Apple Cider:
First off: I would have totally included Christopher Rowe up there in the bromantic category but I think The Blackthorn key by Kevin Sands deserved this hype. Not sure how I can hype it more than I already have but it’s basically a MG Hist-Fic/Fantasy/Mystery that’s just a joyride of a read. Plus, it’s a tinge interactive.
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?
“Cold” … LOL. I need to ask the person what their definition of cold involves.
But as much as I’m an advocate for reading whatever the hell you want, there’s still part of me that doesn’t really enjoy the thought of onlookers judging the book I’m reading. Of the books I do own, yes this would mean a Colleen Hoover title; which is actually tame compared to others with naked models on them. (That I do not own a physical copy of.)
What’s your favourite fall time comfort food/foods?
(I’m surprised this question isn’t asking about a hyped book.)
But I actually don’t know how to answer this. I love (and will eat) almost anything. In terms of “Fall” flavours, you can’t go wrong with apple pie (sweet side) or perhaps a casserole-dish of lasagna (savoury). Granted, however, that I’d be eating the former without ice cream and the lasagna would ideally not be filled with cheese. I’m not quite lactose intolerant but I actually can’t stomach too much dairy product.
