Are You Ready for Sweater Weather? The Autumn Tag

I love a good tag and I love this beautiful season so I’m super excited to participate in this one!  Thanks so much Jenn @ Jenniely  for creating this tag.  As soon as I saw it on Paper Eyed Girl I knew that I wanted to participate!

Hot Chocolate – what is your comfort book?

I don’t have a “comfort book” rather I find comfort when I’m really into a book and find myself thinking about it throughout the day when I’m not reading.

Pumpkin Carving – what is your favorite creative outlet?

Hands down, writing this blog.  In fact, the entire reason I started writing it in the first place was that I was looking for a creative outlet.  Creative outlet for me?  CHECK.

Falling Leaves – changes that appear bad but you secretly love?

I know this is a tag about fall but my answer is most definitely SNOW!  Oh how I love snow, I always have.  Whenever there is snow in the forecast and everyone is freaking out I am over here all, “SNOW is coming?!?!?” and I’m running around lighting seasonal candles, making hot chocolate for my family, and dressing in the fuzziest and warmest clothes I can find.  I.  LOVE.  SNOW.  Absolutely nothing better than being snowed in with my family.  My husband makes fun of me because I use the term “hunker down” every time it snows and I prepare the house in case we just so happen to get snowed in, lol.

(That picture was taken last year. I can’t WAIT for the return of snow!!! PS I wasn’t a huge fan of that book. My review can be found here.)

Pumpkin Spiced Latte – something you love that others tend to judge

Tofu.  I absolutely love tofu.  How do people not love tofu???  These beauties are sitting in my refrigerator as we speak.  Nobody else in my house will touch tofu…just means more for me 😉

Bonfire Night – what makes you explode with joy?

Time spent with my family.  Movie nights in our pajamas, going out for dinner (Chinese food is our favorite and both of my kids use chopsticks like pros), or anything else that we do…as long as we are together!

Fright Night – favorite scary book or film

The best one that I have read recently is this one.  Loved it!

Halloween candy – favorite thing to eat

BANANAS.  I’m obsessed with bananas and eat 1-2 every single day.  Plain, chopped in my oatmeal, drizzled with peanut butter, etc.  Literally obsessed.  I may or may not have been known to travel with them packed in shoe boxes so they wouldn’t get smashed during flights.  Also…grapes.  I eat an insane amount of grapes daily.  Purple has always been my favorite but lately I’ve been loving crunchy green ones!  Fun fact: Halloween candy doesn’t tempt me at all…but put a giant bowl of grapes in front of me and I literally can’t stay away.

Scarves – your autumn ‘must have’ accessory

SCARVES!!!!!  I own a ridiculous amount of scarves and basically live in them all fall and winter.  The bigger and cozier the better! I recently bought 2 wrap/shawl/scarves and I think they are brilliant.

Fire – a book or film that burns your soul

The book I am currently reading isn’t a romance or a “smutty” book by any means but there has randomly been a startling amount of times that the author has mentioned erections.  Nothing else!  No kissing, no sex.  Just…erections.   I wouldn’t say this is “burning my soul” but I’m finding it quite interesting.  Like…why so many erections?  This poor man (lucky man?) literally has them ALL. THE. TIME. I’m about 100 pages in and I would say that erections have been mentioned at least 10 times so far.  That’s a lot of erections!  Any guesses as to what book I’m currently reading???  I will be beyond impressed if anyone figures it out solely based upon this description (not romance, not smutty, lots of boners).

Toffee apples – a book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside

This book (insert tongue sticking out emoji here).

Books That I’ll {Probably} Never Read Tag

A big thank you to Never Not Reading for tagging me in this fun book tag!  I love participating in these!  This was a fun one to fill out 🙂

I obviously don’t have a desire to read any of the following books…but maybe you do!  If so, click the images of each book below to order them through my Amazon affiliate links.  When you order through these links, I receive a tiny commission. Thank you for your support, Xo

A really hyped book that you’re not interested in reading:

People LOVE this book and yet I have ZERO desire to read it.  This Facebook post that I wrote back in April pretty much sums up my feelings on this one.  I just don’t get the hype and honestly I’m not willing to read it to find out why everyone loves it so much.  I’ll probably get a lot of backlash on this…have you read it???  I truly don’t think I ever will.

A series you won’t start/won’t be finishing:

I started reading this series for the same reason everyone started reading this series, lol. #taboosex (now there’s a hashtag I haven’t used before, lol). The writing was awful but honestly…was anybody REALLY expecting the writing to be award winning???  I read the first 2 books but by the 3rd, it was more about their love than about their sex life.  And if I want to read a good love story, there are so many better ones out there.  Never even opened the 3rd and then this happened…

LOVE.  I hope the residents are enjoying them 😉

A classic you’re not interested in:

Nope.  Nope.  Nope.

A book on your shelf you’ll probably never actually read:

I’m never reading this book.  My husband plans to but I have no desire.  If Olivia Pope couldn’t keep me interested in political drama, I highly doubt James Patterson will be able to.  I officially gave up on Scandal after 4 seasons and I’m officially giving up on this book before I even open to page 1.  Not for me.

What books will you (probably) never read?
