Autumnal Book Blog Tag

Ooooh I do love a good book blog tag! As soon as I saw this one on A Little But Alot, I knew I wanted to participate! I absolutely LOVE autumn…LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Candles, pumpkins, scarves, creepiness, all of it! Today is the official first day of fall (!!!) so when is a better time to post this? HAPPY FALL, YA’LL!!!

The Autumnal Book Blog Tag

Are there any books you plan on reading over the autumn season?

OH YES. Snuggled under a warm blanket, coffee in hand, and with leaves falling around me. YES PLEASE. I have a bunch sitting here just waiting for me to read! I’ll keep you posted on titles as I read them!

September brings back to school memories: what book did you most enjoy studying? And what were your favourite and least favourite school subjects?

I absolutely LOVED reading The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger when I was in high school. I will always and forever have a copy of this book on my bookshelf!

Favorite Subject: Reading/Language Arts/English

Least Favorite Subject: Math

October means Halloween: do you enjoy scary books and films? If so what are some of your favourites?

YES! Scary books are AWESOME! HERE is a link to one that I absolutely loved reading. Highly recommend!

As for movies, I’m really not a big movie girl. Give me a book over a movie any day! However, I finally watched Hocus Pocus last year for the very first time (I know, I know) and I absolutely loved it. I’m thinking I might need to rewatch it each fall! So good!

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?

I read THIS BOOK a few weeks ago and I was literally gripped from page 1. AWESOME BOOK. My heart is still pounding.

What book is your favourite cosy comfort read?

I VERY rarely reread books once I’ve read them. As far as favorite cozy comfort reads…I think just the ACT of reading is cozy and a comfort to me :).

Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?

I mean, if you have ever read my blog AT ALL or even are just familiar my blog’s name….I really don’t need to answer this. Moving on…

Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?

YES! Book Coffee Happy will be participating in Blogmas this year!

Whoo hoo!!!! I’ve been wanting to participate in this for 3 years and finally feel like I’m ready to commit! The definition of Blogmas according to Google:

Throughout December, many bloggers take part in a tradition called Blogmas, in which they post on their blog every day in December up until Christmas Day.

I will fill you in on allllll of the details (and specifically how Book Coffee Happy will be participating) as the time gets closer. I’m so excited to finally be able to participate! Stay tuned 🙂

The Guilty Reader Book Tag

I saw The Guilty Reader Book Tag on Zeezee With Books and immediately knew I wanted to participate! This was a fun one to do! Thanks so much for posting, Zeezee! If you haven’t yet checked out Zeezee’s lovely blog HERE is a link 🙂

Without even thinking about it, I recently gave myself a French braid while reading. Does anyone else do this??? I do this all the time while reading, lol…

The Guilty Reader Book Tag

HAVE YOU EVER REGIFTED A BOOK YOU’VE BEEN GIVEN?

I find that I hardly ever want to read a book that someone gives to me. While I SO appreciate the kind gesture, choosing a book to read is such a personal decision. Rarely are books given to me that are actually books I want to read! I don’t gift them to others for this exact reason but I do try my best to find them good homes. I give away my books during my annual garage sale and I LOVE to donate to Little Free Libraries.

HAVE YOU EVER SAID YOU’VE READ A BOOK WHEN YOU HAVEN’T?

Nope! In case you haven’t yet figured it out…I really, really love to read 😉

HAVE YOU EVER BORROWED A BOOK AND NOT RETURNED IT?

No but people have done this to me and it’s AWFUL. If you borrow a book from someone, please always return it! I’ve actually recently stopped loaning out my books because of exactly this.

HAVE YOU EVER READ A SERIES OUT OF ORDER?

Only once and it was a total mistake! I read THIS BOOK and only when I finished did I realize it’s #2 in a series. Oops. I loved that book so much that I must go back and read book #1 at some point! I’ve heard it’s wonderful!

HAVE YOU EVER SPOILED A BOOK FOR SOMEONE?

NO NO NO NO NO. NEVER EVER. NOT EVEN ONE TIME. HELL NO. HARD PASS. You can read more about my thoughts on this and why I will NEVER spoil anything on my blog (or in my life) HERE.

HAVE YOU EVER DOG EARED A BOOK?

Every single day, lol. Read about it HERE.

HAVE YOU EVER TOLD SOMEONE YOU DON’T OWN A BOOK WHEN YOU DO?

Nope!

HAVE YOU EVER TOLD SOMEONE YOU HAVEN’T READ A BOOK WHEN YOU HAVE?

Ummm why would anyone do that?

HAVE YOU EVER SKIPPED A CHAPTER OR A SECTION OF A BOOK?

NEVER. I read every single word every single time. I see other bloggers who say things like, “I skimmed the middle few chapters” and it blows my mind every single time. Why read a book just to skip over parts of it? If you do this, I’d love hear your reasoning!

HAVE YOU EVER BAD MOUTHED A BOOK YOU ACTUALLY LIKED?

No but if you read my blog for any length of time than you are WELL aware that I have bad mouthed plenty of books that I hated, lol. I pride myself on always sharing my truest feelings on books…good and bad! For example, my review of one of the worst books that I have ever read can be found HERE.

If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged! If you do particapate on your blog, please tag me so I can see your answers!

**I’ll be back here on Wednesday with a review of a WONDERFUL book!**

Readers, I’d love to hear your answers to some or all of these questions from this book tag in the comments below!

20 Questions Book Tag

I love a good book tag and when I saw the 20 Questions Book Tag on Stephen Writes, I knew I wanted to participate!

Hi 💗

20 Questions Book Tag

1. How many books are too many books in a series?

I would love to read Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen series but there are 33 books in that series! I’m not sure how many books are too many books in a series but I DO KNOW that 33 is too many 🙂

2. How do you feel about cliffhangers?

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a good cliffhanger! Or as my 9 year old daughter calls them…”hangcliffs” 🙂

3. Hardback or Paperback?

Both. Paperbacks are so much easier to carry around but hardcovers are a million times easier to use with my favorite reading accessory.

4. Favourite book?

My answer to this question is constantly changing the more titles I read but THIS BOOK is hands down one of my favorite books I’ve ever read.

5. Least favourite book?

Landline by Rainbow Rowell. I really hated this book and I received SO MUCH backlash when I posted my negative review. I stand by my words! You can read my review HERE.

6. Love triangles, yes or no?

Eh. I don’t really have strong feelings either way. If it’s well written…sure?

7. The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

The House in the Cerulean Sea. People LOVE this book! I just….couldn’t do it. Read my thoughts on why I stopped reading HERE.

8. A book you’re currently reading?


9. Last book you recommended to someone?

The Windfall by Diksha Basu. I absolutely loved it! Read my review HERE.

10. Oldest book you’ve read?

When I was in high school, this was my favorite book! So much so that I created an entire binder where I wrote down my thoughts on the characters, settings, plot, etc. (AKA a book blogger WAAAAAAY before that was even a thing) I will always have a copy of this classic book on my bookshelf 🙂

11. Newest book you’ve read?

I recently finished reading The Seven Day Switch by Kelly Harms last week. It isn’t being released until July so I would count that as a pretty new book, lol. I will have all of my thoughts posted alongside a review with Melissa Amster from Chick Lit Central closer to it’s release date 🙂

12. Favourite author?

Ahhh this is an ever changing answer…

13. Buying books or borrowing books?

I’m a Library Hero through and through!

14. A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. Ugh. People LOVE this book…I did not. You can read my thoughts HERE.

15. Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Dog Ears. Every single time. Read why HERE.

16. A book you can always reread?

I’ve only done this twice. I reread Shanghai Girls (LOVE THAT BOOK….read my review HERE) in anticipation of the release of it’s squeal, Dreams of Joy. I reread the Shopaholic series (these books will forever hold a special place in my heart…read my review of them HERE) in anticipation of the movie release.

17. Can you read while listening to music?

HELL. NO.

18. One POV or multiple POVs?

If written in a way that isn’t confusing the the reader, I LOVE multiple POVs!

19. Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

Are you asking me this before I had 2 children or after? Because my answer is so dramatically different based upon that fact, lol.

20. Who do you tag?

Anyone who would like to participate! Tag me so I can read your answers 🙂

Happy Friday! I hope your weekend is filled with love and BOOKS!

Xo,

Jenny

The Festive Christmas Book Tag

Book Coffee Happy was tagged in The Festive Christmas Book Tag by The Reading Addict. Thank you so much for the tag! Although I’m Jewish I ABSOLUTELY LOVE CHRISTMAS and actually have Christmas music playing as I type this 🙂 This was a fun tag to complete even if I didn’t quite understand one of the questions, lol…

The Festive Christmas Book Tag was originally created by ReadingGirl on YouTube, and you can check out her video here.

I feel like this post deserves a nice Christmasy picture inserted here but since I clearly don’t have one…here’s my menorah, lol:

The Festive Christmas Book Tag:

1) A fictional family you would like to spend Christmas dinner with?

The Quinns! Oh how I miss them this time each year. I loved Elin Hildrebrand’s Winter series so much (read more about this wonderful holiday themed series and my review of it HERE). If you haven’t yet read the Winter series, this is the very BEST time of the year to read them!

2) A bookish item you would like to receive as a gift?

My husband actually bought me the cutest bookish item last week! How awesome is this candle???

LOVE!

3) A fictional character you think would make a perfect Christmas elf?

Ok…Jewish girl here. Help! An elf like one who helps to make the toys? Or like the Elf on the Shelf who does naughty things? I don’t really get it. I’m over here picturing Will Ferrell? So clearly I’m not sure how to answer this question? Please someone educate this Jew…???

4) Match a book to its perfect Christmas song.

Hmmm. Well I would have to assume that Mallory and Jack from 28 Summers would agree that “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” would fit them perfectly. Read my review of 28 Summers HERE.

5) Bah Humbug. A book or fictional character you’ve been disappointed in and should be put on the naughty list?

Landline by Rainbow Rowell. Truly one of the worst books I’ve ever read although somehow it WON The Goodreads Best Fiction Book of 2014?! Howwww?! I hated that book. I once wrote a blog post about it titled “One of the Worst Books I’ve Ever Read”. I got absolutely ripped apart on a Facebook book group for that post because it said such negative things and people got allll riled up saying that I shouldn’t have said them (insert eye roll here). I stand by my words…that was quite literally one of the very worst books I’ve ever read! Also, I will always give my honest opinion on the books that I read (and on everything else in life). You can read that (apparently) controversial blog post HERE.

6) A book or a fictional character you think deserves more love and appreciation and deserves to be put on the nice list?

Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata! It’s such a quirky book but something about it totally sucked me in. I really loved that book! You can read it’s synopsis and my review HERE.

7) Red, Gold and Green. A book cover that has a wonderfully christmasy feel to it.

How beautiful is this book cover???

I took this book from a Little Free Library last year and have yet to read it. Maybe this year? If you know me at all, you know that I could only read a book like this during the holiday season! If I don’t read this book this month…it will sit on my bookshelf until December 2021.

8) A book or series you love so much, you want everyone to find under their Christmas tree this year so they can read it and love it too?

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins. It’s so amazing! I LOVED IT. Everyone should read this book! Read it’s synopsis and my (glowing) review of it HERE. American Dirt was definitely included in my 12 Best Books I Read in 2020 list that I had posted earlier in the week. You can read that post and check out the other 11 books that I LOVED reading the most this year HERE.
