Are You Ready for Sweater Weather #BookTag #orangecountyreads

Are You Ready for Sweater Weather?

I am so ready. But I live in California, and temps have been in the 80s! Come on Mother Nature…

Today’s post is a fun book tag that was started by JennieLy. Make sure to link back to her if you participate. 

Hot Chocolate: What is your comfort book?

Re-reading any of the books from my childhood is always comforting. At the top of the list would be A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Other favorite “comfort” books would be the Harry Potter series, Calvin & Hobbes comics, L.M. Montgomery books (Anne and Emily), C.S. Lewis (Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe series) and Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet.

Pumpkin Carving: What is your favorite creative outlet?

Working on my bujo (bullet journal). I need all the pens, washi tape, and stickers! I also love making graphics and working on my blog… It’s not work if you love what you do, right?!

Falling Leaves: Changes that appear bad but you secretly love?

  • I complain, but I love it when stores decorate for holidays waaaay early.
  • When Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING shows up in stores!
  • I know it’s really the holidays when the Hallmark channel announces their programming lineup.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte: Something you love that others tend to judge?

The Twilight series, Fifty Shades of Grey, Hunger Games, and the Divergent series. Don’t @ me!

Bonfire Night: What makes you explode with joy?

  • Talking about books with avid readers – other people who understand ARCs, unreliable narrators and TBRs.
  • Meeting authors I have long admired and/or finding out a favorite author has a new book out.
  • Receiving book mail! Winning book giveaways!

Fright Night: Favorite scary film or book?

I’m a scaredy-cat. I wrote a post last year for Blogoween. You can read all about my favorite “scary” movies here

Halloween Candy: Favorite thing to eat?

Candy corn. But in small amounts. Candy apples. But cut into pieces. Does anyone remember Abba Zaba?  For some reason I only remember these at Halloween. 

Scarves: Your must-have accessory?

A knit beanie, scarf, and fun socks.

Fire: A book or film that burns your soul?

The Bronze Horseman trilogy. I must mention this series by Paulina Simmons at least once a month.

Toffee Apples: A book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside?

Most recently, I read Stay Sexy and Don’t Get Murdered and it turned out to be a funny, snarky memoir. I don’t listen to the podcast, so I actually thought it would be funny how-to tips.  I didn’t expect such honesty and frankness from Georgia and Karen about the mistakes they’ve made and what they’ve learned.

  1. This is a lovely post! I agree that Harry Potter is such a comfort read. and I wish I could bullet journal, I’m always just too lazy or procrastinating to really take up that creative outlet, but I’d love to 🙂
