Are You Ready For Sweater Weather? The Autumn Tag

I was tagged by Local Bee Hunter’s Little Nook to do the autumn tag, which fits perfectly with our Blogtober challenge that’s currently going on. This tag is originally by Jenniely!


HOT CHOCOLATE – WHAT IS YOUR COMFORT BOOK?

My two biggest comfort books are Heartstopper by Alice Oseman and Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston, both of which I’ve reread multiple times this year. They’re sure to put a smile on my face and make me feel warm inside when I’m feeling low. Just like hot chocolate, actually.

Heartstopper: Volume One (Heartstopper, #1)


PUMPKIN CARVING – WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CREATIVE OUTLET

My bookstagram! I don’t consider myself to be a very creative person, but I do enjoy taking pictures of my books. I also enjoy bullet journalling, but I have to admit I haven’t quite been able to make an actual habit out of it, which is something I’m still working on.


FALLING LEAVES – CHANGES THAT APPEAR BAD BUT YOU SECRETLY LOVE

Being autistic, I don’t deal well with changes, even if they’re good ones. Even the change of the seasons can really throw me off. So I can’t really answer this question, as I don’t love any kind of change.


PUMPKIN SPICED LATTE – SOMETHING YOU LOVE THAT OTHERS TEND TO JUDGE

I think this question ties in with me being autistic once again, because books and reading are my special interest. This means I spend A LOT of time reading and doing things relating to books, and not a lot of time cultivating any other interests. I’ve definitely noticed that people sometimes consider the sheer intensity of my interest strange, and people are really quick to judge, sooo… I don’t particularly care, though, as I get a lot of joy out of books!


BONFIRE NIGHT – WHAT MAKES YOU EXPLODE WITH JOY?

Well, like I said: BOOKS! I think we tend to assume booklovers have one hobby: reading. But for me (and maybe you recognize this), it’s actually one big hobby consisting of all kinds of smaller things. Yes, there’s reading, but there’s also researching and buying books, visiting bookstores and the library, organizing your bookshelves, taking pictures with your books, writing reviews, writing blogposts about books, talking to strangers & friends on the internet about books… All these things make me really happy!


FRIGHT NIGHT – FAVOURITE SCARY BOOK OR FILM

I don’t do scary movies. At all. They scare me way too much… But I do like a scary book every once in a while. Which for me is probably a middlegrade, since I scare very easily. One of my favourite scary books is The Diviners by Libba Bray, which is SO INCREDIBLY GOOD, but also scared me so much.

The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)


HALLOWEEN CANDY – FAVOURITE THING TO EAT

I have the most boring answer ever, but my honest answer to this question is: peanut butter sandwiches. They’re my ultimate safe food, which means I can pretty much always eat and enjoy them without any sensory issues that other foods might give me.


SCARVES – YOUR AUTUMN ‘MUST HAVE’ ACCESSORY

I’m not very big on accessorizing, since every item of clothing and accessory adds sensory input and I try to limit that. So I don’t really know about any ‘must have’ accessories I would wear. But in the house, I definitely think cosy blankets are a must!


FIRE – A BOOK OR FILM THAT BURNS YOUR SOUL

In a good or bad way? I’m not sure I’m understanding this question correctly. But the most recent book that made my heart ache was Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, which was a really hard read but a really good one as well.

Salt to the Sea


TOFFEE APPLES – A BOOK OR FILM THAT SEEMS ONE THING BUT REALLY HAS A DIFFERENT INSIDE

The most recent book that surprised me in that sense is Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. Somehow, I was expecting a really fluffy contemporary, but it was actually quite a heavy read.


TAGGING

Like last time, I’m not tagging anyone specifically, but consider yourselves invited to do this tag as well! If you do, make sure to link back to one of my recent posts so I can see your post πŸ™‚

  1. I’m still waiting for my diagnosis, but assuming I’m autistic, books are definitely my special interest too. That was what threw me off for such a while I think; that I didn’t recognisably have one, until I realised how much effort and time and thought I put into reading (and like you say, all the associated stuff like rearranging bookshelves, bookstagramming, curating TBRs, buying books…) and then I realised as well that my life, bedroom, office, kitchen etc. are all a total mess, but my bookshelves are virtually pristine!

    I think I might take this tag!
