Autumn Book Tag

2-autumn-1

Hey guys!  I saw Ashley do this fun post and I had to do it since Autumn is my favorite season.

What is your favorite thing about Autumn?
I have so many favorite things when it comes to Autumn since it is my favorite season. Those things include the leaves changing, the crisp fall days, Halloween, Thanksgiving, pumpkins, fall apples, etc. Pretty much everything that has to do with fall, I love!
What book reminds you of your school days?
Hmm that’s a good question. I guess I don’t really have one in particular. I read a lot when I was growing up between books for school and books for fun. But in 4th grade, our class did a read-along of Save Queen of Sheba and I have loved that book ever since.

What is your favorite horror or Halloween story?
The first book I remember reading that really gave me the creeps was The Bone Collector by Jeffrey Deaver. I remember reading it late at night and being scared to turn off the lights to go to bed.


What is your favorite horror or Halloween film?
One of my all-time favorite horror movies is Scream. I’ve lost track of how many times I have watched that movie and all of the sequels. My all-time favorite Halloween movie is without a doubt, Hocus Pocus! It isn’t Halloween without a screening of my favorite witches.

What Fall book release are you most looking forward to?
Definitely Winter by Marissa Meyer! I never thought I would have liked The Lunar Chronicles because Cinder is a cyborg and I wasn’t really into that. But I picked it up on a whim once at Target and devoured it as well as Scarlet and Cress. Each book has gotten progressively better so I can’t wait to see what happens in Winter!

Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)
What Autumn movie release are you most anticipating?
I think it’s safe to say that any book lover is looking forward to my most anticipated fall movie release…. Mockingjay Part 2… Are you really surprised?

What are three books you plan to read this Autumn?
I have three new releases that I am dying to get to that I have recently acquired. I am not going include the two pre-orders that haven’t been released yet.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon

I decided very last minute to join in on Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon that is starting right now.  If you don’t know what it is, check out the page here for more information.

Since this was so last minute (I’m typing this at 11:56 PM and my start time is 7:00 AM), I’m not sure how much time I will spend reading.  I know I won’t be able to do the full 24 hours because I haven’t been able to pull an all nighter in a loooooong time.  I have set my TBR fairly small compared to others I have seen.

Are you participating in the readathon?  What books are on your TBR?

Blog Redesign!

Hey everyone!  Happy Friday!  As you can probably see, I have done a little redesign on the blog.  I was getting tired of the theme I had before.  So I’ve spent the last few weeks wanting to change up my theme, clean things up a bit.  I found a theme that I really like, made a new header graphic and took away some widgets that were cluttering up the sidebar.  I am very happy with how the redesign turned out.  And it’s not so different that you won’t be able to find any features you used before the change.  So take a look around my new design!

In other news, I got my awesome Six of Crows swag in the mail today for pre-ordering the book.  It is awesome!  Here are two photos I posted to Instagram of it since the poster is double sided.  (Link to my Instagram in the sidebar)

What are you reading this Friday night?
