Book Tags

Fall Time, Cozy Time Book Tag!

The Tag was originally created by Sam’s Nonsense

I was tagged by the lovely Stacy over at A Court of Coffee and Books make sure you check out her amazing blog and show her some love!

Crunching Leaves: The world is full of color! Choose a book with red/orange/yellow on the cover.

I chose Fire and Heist by Sarah Beth Durst because I absolutely love this cover. It is on my TBR and I am hoping to read it before 2020 is over!

Cozy Sweater: It’s finally cool enough for warm, cozy clothing! What book gives you the warm fuzzies?

I know, I know – Temporary Wife Temptation and Secret Crush Seduction are probably not what most folks think of when it comes to warm fuzzy reads. But I chose this series because I could totally see myself sitting on my porch, hot coffee to the side and a cardigan wrapped around me while I read the steaminess of these two romances.

Fall Storm: The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose a book that you like to read on a stormy day.

I chose The Dysasters by P.C. and Kristin Cast mainly because the teens in the books have the ability to control elements and essentially control storms that use the elements. I loved it and i can’t wait for book two!

Cool Crisp Air: Makes you breathe freely. Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?

I have to choose Jude Duarte from The Folk of the Air Trilogy. Through that caring heart, she is pretty badass, powerful and knows how to work with knives.

Hot Apple Cider: Warm autumnal drink. What underhyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?

I chose Five Midnights by Ann Davila Cardinal because it is a book that I have been dying to read but have not seen anyone else talk about. It is a YA horror set in Puerto Rico and touches on Puerto Rican Folklore.

Coat, Scarves, & Mittens: The weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up! What’s a book cover you don’t like?

I chose the original cover of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. As much as I love the series, I could not understand the choice for their original cover. I am so glad the covers were changed because they are gorgeous now. Even though it’s not my favorite cover, you bet I own a copy of it.

Pumpkin Spice: Time for some Starbucks! What’s your favorite fall comfort food?

Trick Or Treat GIF by evite - Find & Share on GIPHY

What can I say, I’m a sucker for pumpkin pie.

Warm, cozy bonfire: Spread the cozy warmth! Who do you tag?

I am going to tag all bloggers and book content creators. This was super fun and I invite you to join in on the fall fun!
