It’s Tuesday which is the day when I sometimes join in with a book tag. I enjoy reading these on blogs as I love finding out a bit more about people and what they read.
Today is the 21st September and historically, it’s the first day of Autumn so it seemed like a good idea to join in an Autumn book tag. I read this last week on A little but a lot and decided to join in.
ARE THERE ANY BOOKS YOU PLAN ON READING OVER THE AUTUMN SEASON?
I want to actually read all of the physical books in my TBR (see post here) as well as any library books I get hold of. I really want to read The Last Graduate by Naomi Norvik too.
SEPTEMBER BRINGS BACK TO SCHOOL MEMORIES: WHAT BOOK DID YOU MOST ENJOY STUDYING? AND WHAT WERE YOUR FAVOURITE AND LEAST FAVOURITE SCHOOL SUBJECTS?
I actually really enjoyed Shakespeare. We did Hamlet and I loved the language. I enjoyed Thomas Hardy’s poems too but really didn’t like Tess of the D’Urbervilles. English Lit was always one of my favourites subjects and I also loved my French lessons. My least favourite lessons were Games lessons in the Winter. I hated hockey and cross country running with a passion. I didn’t like Science either especially when they started dissecting rats. I gave up going to Science lessons after that and hid in the library.
OCTOBER MEANS HALLOWEEN: DO YOU ENJOY SCARY BOOKS AND FILMS? IF SO WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITES?
I don’t like scary books or films so that’s a definite no. The only book I’ve read lately that was scary was The Woods are always Watching by Stephanie Perkins which was a NetGalley review. It was good but I won’t hurry to read anything similar.
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?
Oooh, this one is difficult. The Wisdom of Crowds has to be the most exciting and gripping book I’ve read lately
WHAT BOOK IS YOUR FAVOURITE COSY COMFORT READ?
I don’t really have a single comfort read. I do reread books so anything by a favourite author would be an option if I want something to really relax with.
CURLED UP WITH A GOOD BOOK, WHAT IS YOUR HOT DRINK OF CHOICE?
I’m not a great drinker of hot drinks. Sometimes in the Winter, I’ll curl up on the sofa with a mug of hot chocolate and a book. Generally my go to drink would be a glass of cold white wine together with a bar of chocolate and a new book.
ANY PLANS YOU’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS?
Enjoying my retirement and a weekend in London in October to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It would be nice to go to a firework display too after them all being cancelled last year.
Thanks Steph for the tag.
