1) Are there any books you plan on reading over the Autumn season?
The Vanishing by Wendy Webb, Carnivale of Horror edited by Marie O’Regan, Silence by Tim Lebbon, Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, What Happened by Hillary Clinton and Sorcerer to the Crown by Zen Cho. Will I get to all of these? No but it will be fun trying.
2) September brings back to school memories: what book did you most enjoy studying? And what were your favorite and least favorite school subjects?
I enjoyed English and most of my culture studies classes in college. I was never a big fan of math and science because I never had great teachers save 9th grade algebra.
3) October means Halloween: do you enjoy scary books and films? If so what are some of your favorites?
I used to hate horror movies but I’m warming to certain kinds. I used to be a huge weenie about them and now I’ve gotten FHubs hooked on AHS. My favorite scary films are Trick r’ Treat, Urban Legend, Sleepy Hollow, and Identity.
I love creepy books. I haven’t read Autumn Cthulhu but it sounds pretty perfect for this time of year. Other books I’d recommend are In the Dark edited by Rachel Deering, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Bird Box by Josh Malerman, The Gates by John Connolly, Halloween by Sarah Guran, and October Dreams by Ricahrd Chizmar
4) With November it’s time for bonfire night & firework displays. What’s the most exciting book you’ve read that really kept you gripped?
The Rook by Daniel O’Malley. It’s not a particularly fall book but I was just hooked from the first line.
5) What book is your favorite cozy comfort read?
Pride and Prejudice. There’s something cozy and familiar about it to me.
6) Curled up with a good book, what is your hot drink of choice?
Tea if I’m under the weather or hot chocolate.
7) Any plans you’re looking forward to over the next few months?
Getting married is featuring pretty highly on the list, RenFest is always great, and we’ll be visiting some friends to see how their kids have grown and catch up.
