Doing the Fall Time, Cozy Time Tag again in 2020 πŸŽƒ

Fall Time Cozy Time Tag

Hello fellow bookworms πŸŽƒ Throughout the years I’ve done most of the Fall Tags that already exist, but as it’s September (which officially means that it’s autumn for me πŸ‘») now, I thought that I would revisit a Tag that I already did! I love the Fall Time, Cozy Time Tag but I last did it in 2017 – right when I started blogging, so the layout is a lot different from the current one – and if I remember correctly it was one of the first Book Tags that I did here on the blog! It has been three years now which is why I wanted to revisit the Tag again, as I’ll have a lot of different answers and still love the questions very much ❀ The Tag was originally created by Sam’s Nonsense πŸ‚

Crunching Leaves ➽ The world is full of color πŸ‚ choose a book that had reds/oranges/yellows on the cover

Felix Ever After (Kacen Callender) πŸ‚ Felix Ever After honestly has such a nice cover in general, but it’s also full of fall color: we have lots of orange and yellow πŸ’› I just recently read the book after hearing so much praise from my bookish friends and it was absolutely fantastic just like I was hoping! It’s all about a trans teen called Felix, who’s still trying to find himself and also has to deal with transphobic trolls that keep harassing him. There are some grim scenes, but the book is also full of amazing friendships, passion for art and a super sweet best friends to lovers romance that had my heart melting πŸ₯° So if you haven’t checked this out yet, I highly recommend it!

Cozy Sweater ➽ It’s finally cool enough to do warm cozy clothing πŸ‘˜ What book gives you the warm fuzzies?

Cat’s CafΓ© (Matt Tarpley) πŸ‘˜ Time to yell about this book again because it’s so adorable and cute 😭 Graphic Novels, in general, make for perfect comfort reads but this one especially has a special place in my heart πŸ’ž It’s set in a town full of animals who love meeting up in the CafΓ© of the Cat character (hence the name) and have their everyday adventures. I loved all of the animal villagers so much (the graphic novel has a lot of Animal Crossing vibes), especially as we get to see their journeys and friendships, which were so wholesome. The book also discusses mental health, the power of friendship and how to change your perspective: it’s simply incredible and makes me feel all warm inside πŸ₯°

Fall Storm ➽ The wind is howling & the rain is pounding πŸ’¨ Choose a book that you like to read on a stormy day

City of Ghosts (Victoria Schwab) πŸ’¨ City of Ghosts may not be my favorite spooky book, but it’s got such a fantastic creepy and eerie atmosphere without being too scary (this is a Middle Grade series) which makes it perfect to read to get into the spooky, Halloween mood πŸ‘» The main character Cassidy Blake can literally see ghosts ever since she almost died and together with her ghost best friend and sidekick Jacob and her parents making ghost documentaries (who however don’t believe in them) she has a lot of adventures. I really liked following her to Edinborough and Paris (book 2) which was so much fun! The books are atmospheric and easy to read which makes them the perfect books to read during a good, cozy storm πŸ’—

Cool Crisp Air ➽ Makes you breathe freely ☁️ What’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?

Frances Javier (Radio Silence) ☁️ This is actually a super hard question because, in most sci-fi/fantasy and also lots of contemporary books, the characters are all going through so many horrible things and are constantly in danger 😱 In the end, I settled on Frances from Radio Silence because she has the incredible opportunity to make fan art for her favorite podcast, which is such a fangirl dream! (plus in general, I wish I had her art skills) On top of that, she has this super deep, meaningful friendship with the creator that is difficult at some point at the book but still means so much to her. Frances also has the most amazing mom and makes some other friends, so I would gladly trade places with her for a bit 😊

Hot Apple Cider ➽ Warm autumn drink 🍎 What underhyped book do you want to see become the next biggest, hottest thing?

Of Curses and Kisses (Sandhya Menon) 🍎 There were quite a lot of underhyped books that I could choose from but I’m still especially sad that Of Curses and Kisses didn’t seem to get the same love than Sandhya Menon’s other books πŸ₯Ί Of Curses and Kisses just came out at the beginning of the year and I was fortunate enough to get an eArc. I immediately fell in love with the book, it’s got a cool boarding school setting, a great enemies to lovers slow burn romance and a super cool twist on the Beauty and the Beast retelling! Especially because of the retelling aspect I wish this was as popular as other retellings, as it definitely deserves the spot! So if you like retelling and/or Sandhya’s other books, this is a must-read ❀

Coat, Scarves & Mittens ➽ The weather has turned cold & it’s time to cover up β˜‚οΈ What’s the most embarrassing book cover that you like to keep hidden in public? a book cover you don’t like?

The Electric Heir (Victoria Lee) β˜‚οΈ I have a confession to make: I really really don’t like this cover πŸ˜… Don’t get me wrong, the book is AMAZING, a fantastic conclusion and a definite must-read. The cover however really didn’t appeal to me personally, especially compared to the cover of the first book which I loved. Back when the cover was revealed, a lot of people loved it, but I was a bit disappointed. It’s not the worst cover I’ve seen but I don’t like the color scheme, in my opinion, the orange of the background doesn’t work well together with the word blue/greenish color of the title. And in general, the cover didn’t make an impression on me. However, you definitely should read the Duology!

Pumpkin Spice ➽ Time for some Starbucks πŸŽƒ What’s your favorite Fall time comforts food/foods?

Pumpkin Spice Latte & Brownies & Tea & Hot Chocolate πŸŽƒ I’m SO ready for fall again as it means FINALLY indulging in all the hot drinks again πŸ₯° I would love to try more things pumpkin (I like pumpkin soup but have never tried pumpkin pie as it’s sadly not that popular in Germany) and of course the famous Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte!!! It’s an acquired taste but I honestly love it and it always puts me in such an autumnal mood πŸ‚ Sadly it’s also expensive so I mostly drink tea (my favorites are peppermint, rooibos vanilla, and caramel apple pie) and hot chocolate at home while huddled under a blanket πŸ’— The last thing I love to eat is this delicious brownie from a recipe called Brownie Graveyard and it’s the best brownie I’ve ever eaten ❀

    1. Same! Fall food is so good and I love baking brownies and enjoying them with a bit of tea – so delicious πŸ₯° I’m also so ready for the colder weather and to finally wear coats and scarves again! The pumpkin spice latte is honestly so good and always makes me feel so autumnal πŸ‚

  1. I wasn’t the biggest fan for pumpkin spice latte, but I’m actually plan to buy one tomorrow as I’m curious- maybe it’ll taste better the second time? 😢 We don’t have fall here, but whenever I think of the cozy, fall feeling, the closest food that capture the feeling for me would be cinnamon rolls. I just love them so much 🧑

    1. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is definitely a particular taste, but maybe it’ll truly be better the second time around 😊 Ohh yes cinnamon rolls are so nice and I have been wanting to attempt to bake them on my own for a while now πŸ˜„β€

  2. This is a cute tag! I only tried a pumpkin spice latte once and didn’t really like it, but I think I’m going to give it another chance this year. I love the idea of it so much, I want my imagination’s pumpkin spice latte to match the in-real-life version πŸ˜„

  3. This is such a fun tag, I’ll definitely have to do it myself πŸ˜€ I can’t wait for pumpkin spice lattes to finally be available in the UK. I have special pumpkin spice flavoured ground coffee at home but it’s not the same as a real PSL from Starbucks πŸ˜‹

    1. Yes, please! I would love to read your answers πŸ₯°πŸ‚ I think the pumpkin spice latte season will begin soon and I’m so excited!! Omg!! that still sounds so delicious and a great alternative for when you cannot get your hands on a PSL! πŸ˜„β˜•

  4. I also like to turn to graphic novels for comfort! I wish they were cheaper, because I am done with them so quickly, but then I remind myself just how much work goes into all the illustrations and the prices are totally fair haha but something about them is just so easy? I love that
