It is I, your ThursTAG friend back again!
As we are getting closer and closer to Autumn, I thought I’d take on a more autumnal themed blog tag today.
Controversially, I’m not a MASSIVE fan of Autumn. Don’t get me wrong, I like the cosy jumpers and the hot chocolates and the changing colours… but I do NOT like the COLD, DARK, WET weather.
Are there any books you plan on reading over the autumn season?
I PLAN on reading all the books in my TBR, but whether other books arrive and take my heart, who knows haha! Some on the top of my TBR? Shadowghast by Thomas H Taylor, Afterlove by Tanya Byrne (I keep putting this off because people keep warning me it’s going to break me) and Gilded by Marissa Meyer.
September brings back to school memories: what book did you most enjoy studying? And what were your favourite and least favourite school subjects?
I loved doing 1984. There was something about that story that just fascinated me. We did it for GCSE and I remember just being so intrigued by the whole concept and the whole idea. It’s a book I always say I’m going to reread and I am yet to do it, but I will one day!
At school, I loved English (unsurprisingly) and German. I had the most incredible German teacher for a few years and I was devastated when he left. When I went on to do my A Levels, doing RE with Ethics was a FASCINATING subject to study!
October means Halloween: do you enjoy scary books and films? If so what are some of your favourites?
I’m not a scary book/film kinda gal. Not really my jam. I’m TOO easily frightened. That doesn’t mean I WON’T read scary books, they’re just not my faves to reach out for. I would recommend everyone reads Hold Back The Tide by Melinda Salisbury though because that’s a wonderful mix of horror and tense.
With November it’s time for bonfire night and firework displays. What’s the most exciting book you’ve read that really kept you gripped?
I’m a greedy reader, so if I’m into your book, you can probably guess I’m gripped. The last book that I absolutely couldn’t put down? Dragon City by Katie and Kevin Tsang. Just love that series!
What book is your favourite cosy comfort read?
I don’t have one? I’m not a big rereader (as most of you will know). I enjoy just getting lost in books more than anything. That’s my comfort – getting lost in a world… even better if it’s a world I know and characters I have a connection with (sequels might be my comfort reads!)
Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?
I can do them all – hot chocolate, tea, coffee… I’ll drink it all! If I HAD to pick one? Probably a really good tea (breakfast tea is my fave!)
Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?
Christmas? Honestly, I don’t have many plans because pandemic woes… but we’ll see!
And there we go! If you’d like to have a go at this, please do!
