Fall Time Cozy Book Tag

Fall is my absolute favorite season! Ramona from My Bookish Life did this tag and I thought it would be a great way to ring in the Fall season.
Fall in Paris!!
The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges or yellows on the cover.
The colors on this one scream Fall for sure. In A Handful of Dust (Not A Drop to Drink #2) by Mindy McGinnis is also a pretty great book.

It’s finally cold enough to don warm, cozy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?
I smiled the entire time I was reading The Princess Bride by William Goldman. 

The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book or genre that you like to read on a stormy day.
Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay is one of my favorite books ever and it would be the perfect book to read on a stormy day.

What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?
Yeah, I know Laney from Black Iris by Leah Raeder is kind of messed up and flawed (to say the least), but I just love how she grew into herself and didn't make any apologies for who she was.

What under-hyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?
I don't know how much hype it got when it first came out a few years ago, but I don't see Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan mentioned nearly enough. It is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read.

The weather has turned cold and it’s time to cover up. What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?
I don't normally care what people think of my reading material. But I suppose I am glad I read the Kindle version of Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James.

What’s your favorite Fall Time comfort food or drink?
Pumpkin flavored anything!! In my cabinets, I have: canned pumpkin, homemade pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bagels, pumpkin spice almonds and pumpkin spice peanut butter. I am just bummed there is no Starbucks in Italy. I absolutely love pumpkin spice lattes!

What is your favorite season? What is your favorite comfort food for Fall?


  1. Love this tag because I am with you that fall is the best!! I am also a huge pumpkin fan. I am all for pumpkin anything. Pumpkin M&Ms are pretty fabulous. I have to read Two Boys Kissing because my first David Levithan book wasn't that great for me. Black Iris and The Sea of Tranquility are high on my TBRs though.

    1. Grace, I LOVE pumpkin M&M's. They are SO good! It is so hard to eat healthy during pumpkin season. I hope you love Two Boys Kissing because I thought it was freaking amazing.

  2. What a great post. I love fall too. Getting ready to make some pumpkin muffins soon. I've never read Fifty Shades, mostly because I tend to steer clear of overly hyped books.

    Hope you enjoy your day.

    1. Cheryl, mmmm, delicious pumpkin muffins! Send me one. I can never have too many. :)

  3. Wonderful post, Cynthia! <3 Thanks for making time for it :) I just started Sea of Tranquility today, btw. I'm expecting weak knees and a spinning head! Hugs

    1. Thanks Ramona. :) Oh I hope you love Sea of Tranquility. I know I did! I would love to go back and read it for the first time again. Amazing!

  4. I love Fall....the colors and the tastes. Great photos! Thanks for sharing, and here are my MONDAY MUSINGS

  5. Great fall tag post..I loved quite a few of these and still need to try Mindy McGinnis

    1. Thanks Kimba! Mindy McGinnis is a great author. I need to read some of her other stuff.
