BOOKENDING AUTUMN 2019 // My First Time Hosting in October!!



I'm going to be a host for Bookending Autumn 2019, for the first time ever! 

If you're just now hearing about Bookending Autumn, it's basically a book blogging event, hosted by Clo @ BookDragons and Sam @ FictionallySam. The umbrella term for this month-long event is Bookend Events, which happens quarterly throughout the year: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. It's a low-key, fun way to bring the blogging community together! 

For you to participate, you can either:
  •  Post 3 times, using the Host prompts or your own 
  •  Participate in Tidyathon

I'm not that strong to participate in Tidyathon, but I am a host for the first 2 days of October. My prompts are:
  •  Tuesday, October 1 // Sweater Weather - It's officially sweater weather, so break them out! Name some books that make you feel warm and cozy, like a nice sweater in the fall. 
  •  Wednesday, October 2 // PHOTO TAG - Using fall colors (red, orange, black, white, green) and books you have read or want to read during the fall.
    •  Chilly - Book with a white cover (sad plotline/setting) 
    •  Sweet - Book with an orange cover (favorite contemporary novel)
    •  Spicy - Book with a red cover (action/fast-paced setting)
    •  Dark - Book with a black or dark cover (dark, twisted theme)
    •  Green - Book with a green cover that makes you feel jealous 
Here are the rest of the Hosts and prompts:
