For someone who was born during the Autumn season, it’s surprising how little of it I’ve experienced. Growing up I envied the people walking down lanes peppered with fallen leaves; the whole idea of Halloween was magical to me! The atmosphere of Autumn was something I wanted my soul to slip into.
Autumn winds whisper of colder days to come, chilling us further with a promise of the supernatural. It seems like the perfect weather for bookworms who can hide five to ten books under their sweaters, a time for poets to crawl out of their burrows; a real perfect weather for us introverts.
And thus I present to you
Note: Serves one cute bookworm
A serving or two of Fantasy, the darker the better. Writer prefers a dark enough novel to summon a demon for tea.
Stir in some old fashioned mystery, allow to sit on your bones, then…
A bucket full of hot tears to bring your recipe to the right temperature
(Note: It should be at that point where your heart is split in two.)
For those unwilling to sacrifice a finger to their Zodiac, add a dash of paranormal or horror for that extra spice
And for good measure, throw in a healthy serving of psychological thriller
Serve this with the will to actually stick to your TBR!
I’m more of a mood reader, so that last ingredient is very, very crucial for me. I hope you’ll enjoy this little recipe!
