The Fall-Time Cozy Book Tag!

Hey guys so I’ve been seeing this tag floating around and I most recently saw it on Book Snacks. So, I’d thought I’d do this tag to celebrate this wonderful time of the year! I hope you enjoy!


Crunching Leaves:The world is full of color. Choose a book that has reds, oranges, and yellows on the cover.

I choose Taken At Dusk by C.C Hunter because I absolutely love this fantasy series and this cover totally screams fall sunset to me!


Cozy Sweater: It’s finally cold enough to wear warm cozy clothing. What book gives you the warm fuzzies?

A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall is soooo very cute! I love the way she uses different perspectives and it reminds me of how sweet and sorta awkward having a crush can be :).


Fall Storm: The wind is howling and the rain is pounding. Choose your favorite book or genre that you would like to read on a stormy day 

As you guys know my two favorite genres are fantasy and contemporary. 🙂 This is a really hard decision but I think I’d read some fantasy books because they are the perfect addition to any stormy day. But if I were to read something contemporary I would definitely read Eleanor & Park that book is so cute. ❤


Cool Crisp Air: Who’s the coolest character you’d want to trade places with?

I would definitely trade place with Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter! First of all her name is pretty awesome, she has some amazing friends, and she has magical powers! Also, she is super sweet and caring 🙂


Hot Apple Cider: What under hyped book do you want to see become the biggest, hottest thing?

I really love this book it doesn’t have great review on Goodreads but I found it to be deliciously creepy and really captivating.


Coat, Scarves and Mittens: The weather has turned cold and it’s time to cover up. What’s the most embarrassing book cover you own that you like to keep hidden in public?

I actually really like this book it’s just the covers a little bit cheesy. I’m mostly embarrassed by it because when I got it in seventh grade from the library my mom asked me about the cover and winked. So, that basically made it the most embarrassing book over to me after that. 🙂


Pumpkin Spice: What’s your favorite fall time comfort food/foods?

Okay, so tea isn’t technically a food but I love it during this time of the year. Specifically the Candy Cane Green Tea from Trader Joe’s which is MY FAVORITE TEA OF ALL TIME! You have to try it!


Well, I hoped you enjoyed my tag I loved doing it it was so much fun! I tag all of you guys and if you would like just comment down below if you’re planning on doing it and I’ll include your blog in my post so people can check it out!

XOXO,

Madison

A SONG FROM ME TO YOU:

Little More Time by Ciaran Lavery

“Gimme just a little more time and I’ll be flowing to your door.

Just like a seed all my moves are slow I’m always heading for unsure.

I like to think I’m not a complicated man, but then again I can’t be sure.

So give me just a little more time, you know, you’ll give me til the early morn’.

I play the flute in a rag doll suit, and you wear the overcoat.

I never wanted you more than the time you buttoned I across your throat. You held my arm like an anchor would tie itself onto a boat.”

*NEW SEGMENT* Cover Art Spotlight

BOOK COVER SPOTLIGHT

So, I am starting a new segment where I spotlight the cover art of  of a book that I find absolutely beautiful. I think this will be a great edition to my blog and it’s a great way for me to express my love of art. Enjoy!

Book: Shatter Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Artist: Unknown

My Review: https://paperperfection.wordpress.com/2014/12/18/shatter-me-by-tahereh-mafi/

So, I choose this cover because it is absolutely beautiful. If you like the design you should check out her other novels they are breathtaking. If you’ve seen the other cover of this book you also know it is very beautiful but I find this one so much more intriguing. I also find this so much more refreshing from the other recent book covers covered in ball gowns *sigh*. Well, I hoped you enjoyed this new segment 🙂 have a good rest of the week ❤

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

XOXO,

Madison


A Song From Me To You:

Afterlife by Ingrid Michaelson

“When the world is breaking down around you
Taking everything that you know
What you didn’t know
Is that we can go forever if we want to
We can live inside of a moment
The one that we own
You and me we got this
You and me we’re beautiful, beautiful
We all, we all, we’re gonna be alright
We got, we got, we always got the fight in us
We all, we all, we’re gonna live tonight
Like there’s no tomorrow ’cause we’re the afterlife”

A Little Piece of My Weekend in Photos :)

Hey guys! So, these are some pictures from my weekend. I just thought I’d share a little bit of my life with you. Most of these were taken Sunday night with my best friend Eislynn. We just hung out, got some donuts and books (I mostly got the books) and ended the night with some Chinese food. Also, after that we went to the park when it was dark, at my insistence, to go on the swings. I hope you all had an awesome weekend and enjoy the photos!

MY WEEKEND CHILL PLAYLIST:

Thoughts @ 10:36 PM

This I guess you could say is a life post and this specific post is going to be about boys and life in general. Not one specific boy just them, all the boys in my life who have blurred together to recently create this big question mark. Here’s the thing, I’m one of those girls who meets a guy and imagines some grand romance or future together. I guess you could say I’m a romantic or a blue but anyway this kind of process that I went through though lovely as it was, caused me to put people on a pedestal and expect some grand romance which in truth has never been what I have wanted. I guess you could say I’ve met some guys lately or a guy that has made me want the little things, the small moments because they’re all that I’ve really wanted all along. Now, I’m not saying I’m in love or anything but let me just say that it’s good to just enjoy the little moments sometimes whether they’re just with a friend or someone a little bit more than that because life is a series of little moments and I finally realized if you spend your time imagining these grand moments and romances you’ll miss all the great little moments that make life worth living.

p.s sorry this is so short I guess you could just say i was inspired by some little moments

Bookish Buys

So, last week I was in the mood for some online shopping so I bought a couple of bookish things to stock up for fall. I didn’t buy a ton of stuff but I thought I’d share my purchases with you to promote some independent booksellers that I love and to show off my new goodies :). So let’s get into it!

mmug

Please Go Away, I’m Reading Mug

This mug is made by one of my favorite bookish stores, Bookworm Boutique. It is such a cute little online store and they sell a multitude of super cute bookish products. I got this mug because I find it so #relateable and I love the lavender color. I can’t wait to fill this mug with tea and spend a night in reading a book book.

bookmarks 1

Adventure Time Bookmarks

Okay these are so cute and I love Adventure Time! I was confused at first because the pictures looked like I was ordering two for $2.50 but it was actually one that was double sided. I still love them very much. So it turns out I actually ordered two instead of four so here are the backsides of these fabulous bookmarks;

XOXO,

The Disney Book Tag!

One of my favorite booktubers Kat (from Katytastic) created this tag a couple months ago and I felt that I had to do it! I hope you enjoy the tag! Also, comment down below your favorite Disney movie, I personally liked Sleeping Beauty best :). Fun fact: When I was little I used to scream “DON’T TOUCH THE NEEDLE” at Aurora when I watched Sleeping Beauty.

btw I’m listening to Disney music while writing this 🙂


The Little Mermaid…A character who is out of their element a “fish out of water”

America from The Selection fits this description perfectly, she comes from a poor family and a difficult lifestyle and then suddenly she’s living in a castle and she has to learn how to act properly and cope with this complete change of setting.


Cinderella… A character who goes through a major transformation

For this I choose Virginia from The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things she starts off with little confidence and to be completely honest she hates herself but in the end she has a new found confidence and respect for herself and who she is.


Snow White… A book with an eclectic cast of characters

The cast from Will Grayson, Will Grayson is certainly eclectic they’re are so many different personalities in this book. The authors of this book really bring together so many different characters and they make it work excellently!


Sleeping Beauty… A book that put you to sleep

I found New Moon by Stephanie Meyer to be especially boring, young Madison loved the Twilight series. But, I always thought New Moon was just the worst book of the series the majority of it is just Bella moping around waiting for Edward.


The Lion King… A character who had something traumatic happen to them in childhood

Okay, Harry Potter totally fits this description he had his parents killed in front of him as a baby and he was forced to live with his aunt and uncle and their terrible son. I’m really surprised he didn’t have an emotional breakdown tbh.


Beauty and the Beast… A beast of a book (a big book) that you were intimidated by, but found the story to be beautiful

I personally found Harry Potter an the Goblet of Fire to be HUGE I started reading the series in fifth grade so at the time a 700 page book seemed massive but I loved it so much it’s my favorite book in the series.


Aladdin… A character who gets their wish granted for better or for worse

For this I’m choosing Gatsby from The Great Gatsby all he wanted was Daisy back and he got her back, but not in the way he wanted.


Mulan… A character who pretends to be someone or something that they’re not 

Okay, so for this I choose Maven from Red Queen if you’ve read the book you know exactly what the fuck if talking about ugh he is such a jerk, but I’m not going to spoil what happened so you’ll just have to read the book to know why.


Toy Story… A book with characters you wish could come to life

For this I choose the characters from Fangirl because all the characters are so nice and funny and Levi is absolutely amazing.


The Princess and the Frog… A character who fell in love with someone unexpected

For this I choose Ben and Lacey from Paper Towns they’re so unexpected but they end up working well together and being really cute.


So, that is the Disney book tag! If, you’ve seen the original you can tell I changed the last one. The original tag included the new Disney Descendants t.v show/book because it was a promotion for them done by Kat and some other booktubers but I felt uncomfortable promoting something to you guys that I didn’t know a whole lot about. Here’s a link to the original one by Kat if you would like to check it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWr3eIqBHqI

I hope you enjoyed this tag! Talk to you guys soon!

XOXO,

Madison

btw I think I’m going to start posting regularly on Sundays & Wensdays

My Favorite Disney Song;

When Will My Life Begin– Tangled 

“And so I’ll read a book or maybe two or three
I’ll add a few new paintings to my gallery
I’ll play guitar and knit, and cook and basically
Just wonder when will my life begin?”

Best Books for Autumn!

Autumn officially started which mean falling leaves, cinnamon tea, and of course the pumpkin spice latte. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons I love the chilly days, the sound of leaves crunching under my feet  and snuggling up with a good book and a lovely cup of tea. So, today I thought I’d recommend a couple great books for fall that will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.


Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell is a great author and Fangirl is one of my favorite books by her. Fangirl is cute and funny and the main character is incredibly relatable to me and all my other fangirls out there. This book will suck you in and give you all the fall time feels.


Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

I loved this book so much it’s a great fantasy novel and Liv the main character is a great narrator.  I immediately got sucked into this book and I loved the mystery aspect of it. It’s also pretty great because Liv moves to London with her family and meets some cute mysterious British boys.


A Little Something Different by Sandy Hall

This book was so cute and I loved how the author used several different perspectives to describe their love story. It was a sweet read for fall and the fact that they were both starting college gave it even more of an autumn feel.


Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

You’ve probably already heard a lot about this book but I loved it so very much! It started off a little bit slow but it soon picked up and I was sucked in. I loved the politics that were included in this story and the plot twist at the end was AH-MAZE-ING! Also, this cover is beautiful!


Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen

As you guys know Sarah Dessen is one of my absolute favorite authors so of course I loved this book. I found it to be really sweet and I loved the other characters in it. This books talks about family and life and it changed my perspective on things a bit.


So, I hope you enjoyed my autumn reading recomendations! Comment down below if you have any more! Also, my friend Bethany just started a blog so you should go check her out! (www.simplybethanysite.worpress.com)

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
