Autumn Reading Tag

Wow- how crazy fast is Autumn going?! So as per usual I’m rushing to do this tag before the season ends… I blame you TIME!

Thank you so much to the awesome Emily over at Embuhleeliest and Eliza at Dusk Angel Reads!!

1) Are there any books you plan on reading over the Autumn season?

Well autumn is nearly over- so like Emily I’m going to cheat and say the book I’m currently reading cos then I’ll hopefully finish it!

It’s a bloody long slog though!

2) September brings back to school memories: what book did you most enjoy studying? And what were your favourite and least favourite school subjects?

to kill a mockingbird

Ooh there are so many! I will say To Kill A Mockingbird was the first classic I studied in depth and loved- although I also have fond memories of watching Midsummer’s Night Dream and reading The Lady of Shallot in primary school!

Rather predictably, my favourite subjects were Art and English. For years it felt like I was stuck in the middle of a love triangle with them- till I finally realised I could be polyamorous and have both 😉

And if you’re not bored of the mini bio yet, I can safely say my least favourite subject was science. I drove my friend- who’s brilliant at science- mad for years saying how bored I was and insisting I would drop it at the nearest opportunity (I didn’t though)

3) October means Halloween: do you enjoy scary books and films? If so what are some of your favourites?

Haha nope! I am trying though! Aka I put some scary books on my rather terrifying TBR– that counts right? Maybe one day I’ll actually read this…

4) With November it’s time for bonfire night & firework displays. What’s the most exciting book you’ve read that really kept you gripped?

Ooh fun question! Gone Girl!

5) What book is your favourite cosy comfort read?

Anything by Austen!

6) Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?

Hot chocolate with Baileys! Always!

7) Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?

Yes! I’m going away for the weekend and I’m looking into taking a trip in the New Year! So exciting times!

(Oh and by the way- that’s my way of saying I’ll be on a mini-hiatus this weekend!)

That was fun! I tag:

Fall Activities Book Tag

I am so so sorry that I have been awol the last few days- I haven’t been responding to comments or posting because my computer, aka THE MAD HATTER, is dying. The temperamental bugger is on its last legs- so I’m a bit caught up with removing as much stuff from it as possible and praying that this won’t be the last time it turns on!

Okay- now that I’ve got my excuses out the way, let’s talk about something more cheery: how much I *love* autumn! (aka Fall) I do adore the changing of seasons and there are so many exciting things about Autumn that make it super special. I absolutely love this tag, cos I get to talk about all those cool things- so thank you so much to the awesome creator of this tag, Dreaming Through Literature, for tagging me to do this! It looks awesome!!

Apple Picking

A book on your TBR that looks so delicious you can’t wait to take a bite out of it.

Ooh there are so many!

Corn Maze

A book that’s so much fun to get lost in.

Throne_of_Glass_UK

Okay- I know there are a lot of mixed reactions to this series- but it’s such fun to get lost in!

Haunted Houses

A book that scared you silly.

 I am so easily scared, it’s ridiculous. You’ll probably hear this all through October but I don’t really read many scary books. That’s why I was easily freaked out by Breathe (yes I know it’s a children’s book).

Pumpkin Patch

The latest book you picked up (purchased).

Okay, this is a little embarrassing after my massive haul *and* the bookaholics tag– but I may have bought Raven King yesterday… Whoops! Shout out goes to Jill- cos I got this with the amazon gift voucher I won from her!

Scenic Drives

A book that is lyrically beautiful.

Pumpkin Carving

A book you didn’t like and wouldn’t mind carving up.

Ughh this book is the worst!

Drinking Apple Cider

A sweet book to curl up under the covers with.

Easily Isla and the Happily Ever After– I need more books like this in my life.

Jumping in a Leaf Pile

A book that reminds you of your childhood.

Okay I’m not the first and I certainly won’t be the last to give this answer!

Scary Movie Night

Your favourite spooky read.

Okay *see above* about my fear of scary books- but I love Turn of the Screw, even if it does freak me out!

Bonus! Costume Party

A book with an eclectic cast of characters.

Okay, for a change I’m not going to answer with Game of Thrones– how about Falling Kingdoms instead.
