I live in a subtropical climate and it’s finally starting to feel like fall. I can actually light my candle and sit under my cozy blankets and not burn up. And the candles aren’t to keep the mosquitos away finally.
First up: Light a Scented Candle – A Book That’s Lighthearted
Kristy and the Snobs, the newest in the Babysitters Club graphic novels was the one that came to mind for this. I’m also watching the second series of BSC which I’m told has inspired tears so maybe I’m wrong about the lighthearted bit.
Drink Pumpkin Spiced Lattes – A Book That Has a Lot of Hype
Room to Dream by Kelly Yang, she’s had a lot of hype lately for all the wrong reasons when people should just be focused on her wonderful stories. I’m loving Room to Dream especially since it addresses some of the problems we are dealing with these days.
Go Apple Picking – A Book That Has Fun Friendships
I just finished This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada trilogy and when the characters aren’t running for their life trying to escape governments rebels or a zombie virus their friendships are really the heart of the book and what gets them through all the other wild adventures they end up being placed in.
Wear a Cozy Sweater – A Book That Warms Your Heart
What Lives in the Woods by Ally Malineko, it’s a terrifying ghost story for most of the book which gives you some insight to how I read. But the ending is just so sweet it has to fall into this category.
Bake Cinnamon Rolls – A Character Who’s a Talented Chef
A Place at the Table by Saadia Faruqi and Lauren Shovan. The two characters were in a cooking class where they had to make so cross cultural and yummy dishes. I’m still wishing I could pick up a pint of the ice cream they make at the end.
Jump Into a Pile of Leaves – A Book That Made You Jump For Joy
Starfish by Lisa Fipps because it’s one of the few, if not the only book focused on fat positivity that I’ve read. I literally want to buy it for school libraries, it’s going to be in the top ten of the year. I just wish I’d had books like this as a young fat person. Because the writer writes about how the protagonist can be fat and happy.
