I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything yet again, and I apologize for that, but I’ve been busy getting sucked into This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. I’m almost finished, and it’s kind of a bittersweet feeling for me: on the one hand, I can’t wait to finish it so that I can gush about it, but on the other, I’m enjoying August and Kate so much that I don’t want to get to the last page because then I’ll have to wait impatiently for the sequel like everybody else.
Ugh. A book nerd’s life is so woe-is-me, isn’t it?
Anyway, I wanted to post something, and I figured that since it is now Autumn, I decided to do the Autumn Reading Tag that I found on YouTube. It’s just seven questions, and I’ll just get right into it because this blog is getting long enough. I won’t be tagging anyone, but if you want to do it, then go right ahead and share your answers. I look forward to reading them.
1) Are there any books you plan on reading over the Autumn season?
Of course. I’ve already three so far for Fall. Technically, two and a half… but still.
2) September brings back-to-school memories: what book did you most enjoy studying? And what were your favorite and least favorite school subjects?
The book that I most enjoyed studying in school is probably Island of the Blue Dolphins. It’s been years since I’ve read it, so I don’t remember what it was about, but I do know that I loved it and would often read ahead of the class when I got home from school.
My favorite subject up until eighth grade was Math; I was one of those students who sat in the front row and raised her hand because she knew all the answers. Once I hit high school, however, is when it all went to shit. I still like Math, but it’s those damned word problems that get me every time. My brain likes to overanalyze. After that, my favorite subject in school was English, go figure. My least favorite was Chemistry.
3) October means Halloween: do you enjoy scary books and films? If so what are some of your favorites?
I’m a horror movie whore. Of course, I love them. October is when I get to binge-watch my favorites, both scary and non-scary alike. My go-to is Friday the 13th or Halloween. I love the classics, too, like Dracula, Frankenstein. It.
I love horror books, too, in all genres. I’ll be tackling the massive It as soon as I finish This Savage Song, which is also kind of a horror novel, I guess. That’s what others have said, but nothing in it’s spooked me. I just love the story and want more of it. I haven’t really delved too much into the horror genre of books, so I don’t know much of what’s out there aside from Stephen King.
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?
5) What book is your favorite cozy comfort read?
Anything by Debbie McComber. When I think of “cozy comfort reading,” I think romance, and deep down, I’m a hopeless romantic who’s a sucker for happy endings.
6) Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?
Either a Chai Tea Latte, Caramel Macchiato, or a Vanilla Latte, in my Doctor Who TARDIS mug.
7) Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?
Besides work? Not really. My family isn’t one to get together for Thanksgiving anymore; we all do our separate things. We’re more of a Christmas family, anyway, and that’s Winter. This is Autumn.
Aaaaaand that’s a wrap!
I hope you all enjoyed reading this as much I enjoyed answering the questions. I’m not sure when I’ll post next, but it will probably be my review/gush of This Savage Song before I start in on Stephen King.
Until then, happy reading and I will see you all soon.
