This is The Autumn Reading Tag. I think it started on BookTube, but I’ve seen it around the blogosphere lately, so I’m considering myself tagged.
The Autumn Reading Tag
1. Are there any books you plan on reading over the autumn season?
Um, yes. I’m always planning on reading books. Here’s what’s on my TBR list for the fall months.
2. September brings back to school
nightmares memories: What book did you most enjoy studying?
And what were your favorite and least favorite school subjects?
I did a whole post on forced school reads that weren’t (too) painful. The best book I studied in school was The Giver by Lois Lowry. I read it in middle school language arts.
I hated pretty much everything about school, but if I had to pick a favorite subject, it would be either English or history. My least favorites were math, science, music, and P.E. Art class was also a disaster. Basically, child-me was a hot mess. (Teenage-me wasn’t much better.)
3. October means Halloween: Do you enjoy scary books and films? If so, what are some of your favorites?
I don’t have much patience for movies, but I love scary/creepy/bizarre books. The best one I’ve read this year is Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick. A ranking of my favorite Stephen King books can be found here.
4. 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’m not sure what the most exciting book I’ve ever read was, but The Hunger Games kept me riveted. No matter how many times I reread it, it’s always exciting.
5. What book is your favorite comfort read?
This may sound odd, but Stephen King books are my comfort reads. I’ve read a lot of them and usually know what to expect. It’s pretty rare for me to be super-disappointed in them.
6. Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?
Hot chocolate is the only hot drink I like. Coffee and tea both make my stomach hurt. No idea why. Hot chocolate is awesome and never hurts me.
7. Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?
Yes! I’m graduating from graduate school at the end of November. When I graduate, I will have been in college for 11 years, attended 4 different universities, and earned 3 degrees. I’m so ready to be done with my education.
What are your fall plans?
