Hi, lovelies! Antonia and I are going to do our best to participate in Blogtober this month. So we’re kicking off the month with the Autumn book tag: Are you ready for sweater weather? We were tagged by the always wonderful Avhlee @ Tea Cups and Torn Pages. Without further delay, the questions!
1. Hot Chocolate: What is your comfort book?
Amanda- Looking for Alaska by John Green, for sure. I just get all the feels.
Antonia- I feel like I have so many but probably The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory.
2. Pumpkin Carving: What is your favorite creative outlet?
Amanda- I like to write when I can find the time.
Antonia- This one’s tough because I love creative things but I’m not actually all that creative. So I love to crochet and paint and craft but the results never come out the way I want them to.
3. Falling Leaves: Changes that appear bad but you secretly love?
Amanda- The seasons. I complain about them changing but actually love it.
Antonia- I definitely have to agree with Amanda on this one.
4. Pumpkin Spiced Latte: Something you love that others tend to judge?
Amanda- Reading? Hah, most people don’t read like I do.
Antonia- Well my husband likes to judge the shows I watch but really he secretly likes them too.
5. Bonfire Night: What makes you explode with joy?
Amanda- Family and friends. I just got to see the wonderful Antonia for the first time in almost a year, and that made me explode with joy.
Antonia- ^Agreed. Seeing Amanda and her perfect baby, and all my nieces, nephews and siblings that I don’t get to see too often because I live on the other side of the country. I can’t think of anything better.
6. Fright Night: Favorite scary film or book?
Amanda- I do not like scary things at all. So, pass.
Antonia- Nope! I guess Stranger Things cause it’s definitely a little spooky but I love it.
7. Halloween Candy: Favorite thing to eat?
Amanda- Kit-Kat minis.
Antonia- Dark chocolate.
8. Scarves: Your must-have accessory?
Amanda- …A book? I don’t go anywhere without one.
Antonia- Hmm.. I guess just my jewelry. I never take my rings off and hardly ever change my necklace or earrings.
9. Fire: A book or film that burns your soul?
Amanda- The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow. I read this recently and I just can’t stop thinking about it. The story drew me in and blew me away at the same time.
Antonia- Most recently I think Skyward by Brandon Sanderson did this for me. This book gave me all the feelings.
10. Toffee Apples: A book or film that seems one thing but really has a different inside?
Amanda- The Arsonist by Stephanie Oakes. This book seemed to be a fun mystery with two kind of weird kids. But it turned out to be so much more than that.
Antonia- His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman. This seems like just a middle grade fantasy story but has some more serious themes mixed in that really make you think, even as an adult.
That’s all we have for you today folks! The Are You Ready For Sweater Weather? Book Tag has been fun! Hope you all enjoyed this post! Feel free to do it and say we tagged you!
