Question 1: Are there any books that you're planning to read in the autumn season?
Question 2: September brings back-to-school memories. What book did you enjoy reading in school, and what were you most and least-favorite subjects of study?There isn't a particular book that evokes memories from schooltime, but I did enjoy a lot of classics of the Western Cannon - Little Women by Louisa May Alcott; Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen; The Grapes of Wrath, Of Mice and Men, and East of Eden by John Steinbeck. My favorite subjects were English Literature and Psychology, and my least favorite subject was Geometry.
Question 3: October means Halloween. Do you enjoy scary books and/or movies, and what are some of your favorites?
Question 4: With November comes Bonfire Night and fireworks displays. What is the most exciting book you've read that kept you gripped?The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead was tragic and gripping and exciting all at once!
Question 5: What book is your favorite cosy-comfort read?
Question 6: Curled up with a good book, what's your hot drink of choice?Tea! There's a small tea shop near my workplace where I buy a loose-leaf cream earl grey that is unbelievably delicious with just a splash of milk. If it's something herbal that I'm craving, I adore Tea Pigs Peppermint Licorice tea, or a loose-leaf organic chamomile with a squeeze of honey.
Question 7: Are there any plans you're looking forward to over the autumn season?Apple-picking at the local orchard is a yearly tradition, from which I make a few apple pies and some pints of apple butter. I keep some apple butter for my own enjoyment, and gift the rest to friends and family at holiday time. It tastes heavenly when spread on fresh-baked bread!
