Fall Time, Cozy Time | Book Tag

IMG_5940 copyAutumn/Fall; whichever you prefer, is my favourite season. I was born in Autumn, and Autumn will remain my favourite. The main reason why I like Autumn the most is because I feel like I can finally stretch my body comfortably. I love the feeling of the cold wrap around my body, I am home. I am home during the cooler months.

I found this tag via Lindsey @paradisbooks. I haven’t actually done a tag in a while, so this should be exciting! For me anyway, haha.

  • Crunching Leaves: the world is full of color choose a book that had reds/oranges/yellows on the cover.  Continue reading

The Pastry Book Tag

I just want to do a quick thank-you to whoever created this Pastry Book Tag. I don’t know who you are, but Kudos to you!

Hello all! Today is a Book Tag. I feel like I haven’t done one of these in a while, even though I did one just last month. Pastries are always a come and go for me, since I can’t really have sweets anymore [if you’re wondering why I can’t have sweets, it’s because the sweets sometimes leave a burning sensation in the back of my throat]. Aside from that, there are quite a few pastries that are very cool looking. Lets get on with the tag, shall we?

Croissant: Name a popular book or series that everyone (including you) loves. Continue reading

The Halloween Book Tag

Happy Halloween everyone! If you don’t celebrate Halloween, then a happy Monday to you! As you can see, today’s post is a Book Tag! I’m trying to do more book tags; so like, one book tag a month, since I don’t want to bombard myself -or you- with tags.

I thought to myself the other day, “Are there any Halloween Book Tags?” Turns out, there is! So I’m going to do that today in celebration of Halloween. I can’t find the original post, so kudos to whomever created this post!

Autumn Book Tag | 2016

I’ve initially found this post via The Quirky Book Nerd, and since it’s Autumn currently, I figured, “Why not??

So, Autumn is my favourite season of the year. Up here in Western Canada, Autumn is very short. We usually have the heat from summer spilling over into the first few weeks of Autumn, and then the weather will pitter off into some rain. And then it’ll be dry and sunny, with a crisp cold air that almost burns your throat if you suck in air too quickly. The weather here is finicky anyway. And of course, the leaves are falling, so there’s the crunch of leaves under your feet if you’ve decided to go for a walk. And nearing Winter the air will get colder, and you’ll be able to see your huffs and puffs of breath through your nose.

Onto the questions!

What is your favourite thing about Autumn?  Continue reading

Coffee Book Tag

I found this tag on youtube via jessethereader, and even though I don’t like drinking coffee, I thought that these questions would be interesting to do!

  • Name a series that’s tough to get into but has hardcore fans.

For this one, I’m going to say the Mortal Instrument series! While I have read the series, and enjoyed the books the first time round, I found that trying to get into the series again is tougher than I thought it would be. When I tried re-reading City of Bones, I couldn’t even get that far into the book because Jace just pissed me off so freaking much! Agh!

  • Pepperminet Mocha: Name a book that get’s more popular during the seasons.

For this one I’m going to say the same book that Jesse said for this book. My True Love Game to Me: Twelve Holiday Stories by Stephanie Perkins and all of the other 12 authors that have stories in this book.

  • Hot Chocolate: What’s your favourite children’s book?

Its been so long since I’ve read read my favourite children’s book. Honestly! I enjoyed quite a few books when I was younger! I think my favourite though, would have to be Greek Myths (Usborne Miniature Editions) by Heather Amery.

  • Double Shot of Expresso: Name a book that kept you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

The Wrath & the Dawn certainly had me at the edge of my seat from start to finish. The first time I read this book, I literally could not stop reading. The story, the characters, the setting, everything about this book just drew me into the book.

  • Starbucks: Name a book that you see everywhere. 

Lately I’ve been seeing both A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas, and I’ve been seeing The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater everywhere! And I’m honestly 100% okay with that. I love ACOMAF, and even though I haven’t read the last two books in the Raven Cycle series, I love the books!

  • That Hipster Coffee Shop: Give a book by an indie author a shout out.

I read this book a few years ago. I was probably, 16, maybe 17 when I read Darkhouse?  Darkhouse by Karina Halle is one of my favourite books. The book itself is a great read. There’s the angsty feel accompanying the story, with characters that are in that New Adult/Adult age, so there’s no main teenager POV! Which was really nice to be honest.

Anyway, Darkhouse is a Mystery, Paranormal Thriller, and when I first read the book, the events following Perry and Dex, scared the shit out of me so badly that I had to sleep with a light on for a week. — This is me telling you to read Darkhouse ASAP!!!

  • Oops, I Accidentally Got Decaf: Name a book that you were expecting a little bit more from. The Archived by Victoria Scwab

The Archived by Victoria Schwab is the book I have for this answer. A lot of people pumped up this book, and when I got around to reading the book, I was majorly let down. The characters, and the happenings of The Archived just…completely fell from my expectations.

  • The Perfect Blend: Name a book or series that was both bitter and sweet, but was ultimately satisfying.

A book series that was both bitter and sweet, but was ultimately satisfying to me is the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. There are moments where I was bothered and bitter, and there were sweet moments that I absolutely loved. The Fallen series was ultimately very satisfying to me! I really enjoyed reading Fallen, and I hope to have some time to reread this series again soon!

That’s all for this Coffee Book Tag! If you want to do this tag, then I tag you!! I’d love to know what you’re answers would be for all of these questions!

Thank you so much for reading!


The Bookish Alphabet | Tag

After scouring wordpress for the pass few days looking for bookish tags to do, I came across The Bookish Alphabet tag! I’ve originally saw it off of KinmSiang’s WordPress account, and I decided to do this tag since I’ve been wanting to diversify my blog a little. Do more stuff on this blog aside from book reviews all the time. So without further do: The Bookish Alphabet tag!

The Rules for this tag are:
Pick a book that is on your shelf or one that you have read in the past and fill out each letter of the Alphabet. The idea is to use books that you have either read or that are on your TBR list.

Seems easy! Continue reading
