Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a wonderful time welcoming in Fall if you live in the northern hemisphere, and I hope you’re not melting if you’re down in the southern parts of the world with me! Today we’re going to look at something different to the usual: things I’ve learnt blogging.
It’s not Autumn where I am, no. I live in Australia and we’re dusting off the chocolate wrappers from our brief dalliance (mostly with the sweets) from Halloween down here, and decking the halls with festive kangaroos and shrimps on barbie: Christmas is coming. So naturally, I’m going to talk about Autumn and the books one should read within it, even though it’s highly irrelevant.
Living in Australia, I don’t really celebrate Halloween. It’s just not a thing in our neck of the woods. That being said, it doesn’t stop the retail stores wistfully stocking their shelves with spooky products for those few of us who go all out. Personally, I carve a pumpkin and that’s it. I do like carving pumpkins.
Perhaps “rubbish titles” is a bit harsh, but you know what? Us readers need inspiring and GALLANT (can titles be gallant? probably not) titles to make us reach across the void (aka: our TBRs) and pluck a certain book from the sea of books out there. Because dang, if I see a ‘meh’ book title (especially if the cover is cringe) then it’s sinking real fast to the bottom of my TBR.
Hark! Is that the sound of warmer weather FINALLY coming our way? I sure hope so. Being down under means that whilst the Americans pluck their pumpkins and festoon the hallways with crunchy leaves, us Australians are stocking up on sunscreen looking forward to a hot, hot, hot Christmas.
I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start! This week I’m deviating from the set path and choosing an old topic. This week’s actual topic was about food/drinks you eat when reading but I don’t eat or drink when I read!
Howdy, fellow bookworms. I hope you’re well because today we have a fun task ahead of ourselves. I’m very pleased with myself for getting a Top Ten Tuesday post out because that makes my week feel organised. Nothing like having a win lined up for a Tuesday.
