Happy Friday Bibliofriends,
I know I said last week was ‘what a week’ but boy, oh boy, this week definitely put the WHAT in WHAT a week! I’ve been working so late at work that I even forgot to watch Bake Off on Tuesday night – just totally sat there at home and forgot the show was even on! I’ve also been letting my posts drop a little lately but hopefully this weekend I’ll find some time to get back on track!
Fae Friday is a weekly blog prompt hosted by the wonderful Kristy at Caffeinated Fae. It seems like the perfect way to spread a little more magic across the blogosphere every week.
Here are the rules:
- Link back to this page on Caffeinated Fae.
- If the prompt idea is from another blog, link to that blog as well.
- Use #FaeFriday when posting to social media so we can all find each other!
- Participate when you can & have fun with the prompt!
October 2nd prompt:
Autumn is in the air, and the autumn court is in the spotlight. They’re celebrating the season change by gracing us with the beautiful gift that is the changing of the leaves. That is why this week’s prompt is:
What genre gives off that perfect autumn vibe to you?
For me Autumn is all about cosy nights in, leaves changing colour on the trees, sunset drives down country lanes, hot chocolate by warm fires and of course – good books!
I’m not terribly sure that I associate a particular genre with Autumn, but there is definitely something bookish which gives me all of the Autumnal vibes!
This time of year always brings the Cheltenham Literature Festival which is one of my absolute favourite things to do in our town. I usually try to attend an event each evening and then spend my whole weekends either at events or sat in the book tent reading! This year is a little different obviously with Covid, so I’ll be watching a majority of the events online on the catch-up player instead.
Normally they have a special event at the Festival every year for the announcement of the winner of the Man Booker Prize and it’s this that makes me associate Autumn with all different kinds of books from various genres. The Literature Festival always inspires me to read more broadly and explore books/authors I wouldn’t usually experience so that’s why I can’t just pick one particular genre.
What type of books or genres do you like to read during the Autumn? Do you have any local Literature Festivals that you love to attend? What are your favourite things about this wonderful season? Feel free to leave me links to your own Fae Friday and I’ll check them out!
Enjoy your weekend Bibliofriends!
