October TBR

Autumn is most definitely here. It’s jumper weather, soup is on the menu, and I am curling under the blanket at night more often than I am not. I love this time of year, especially for reading, and I am so ready! I struggled a little with reading in September after what was a reading packed summer, and I’m feeling ready for some fall stories. I really love this time of year and I have a lot of early starts this month that should leave time for me to read in the afternoons before Emma gets home.

Once again, we’re going on holiday again this month. We’re away for a little longer this time, off to enjoy the sunny temperatures in Florida and to introduce Emma to Disney. As we’re not going until the back end of the month, I am probably going to do a holiday TBR that will see me into November too.

Fall Book Tag

Can you feel that? It’s the first real cold morning of this year’s Fall. The temperature dropped below 10 degrees into real get your boots on and coats out of the cupboard levels, and my breath could actually be seen in my car. Pumpkin Spiced Lattes are firmly on the menu, Halloween is creeping into the shops, as are the lovely sight of jumpers and boots, and going to the football is soon going to become a lesson in how many layers you can wear and retain the ability to walk easily and sit down painlessly. The leaves are even turning the lovely shades of orange and red that signals Autumn is well and truly here! Continue reading “Fall Book Tag”

Fall TBR

It’s the middle of September and just a couple of days away from officially being Autumn. I can’t quite believe that we’re already into Fall. Pumpkin Spiced Lattés are already back on the menu, jumpers are coming out of the closet, and boots are back in the shops. I really love this time of the year, from now until New Year is definitely my favourite few months and this year, I get to through Disney into the mix too!

With autumn looming, I thought it was high time to construct a Fall TBR, and it so happened to coincide nicely with this weeks Top Ten Tuesday post. I have found it much easier to stick to TBRs this year than I have in the past, so I’m hoping to commit to reading a mix of books over the next few months to lessen my TBR and ARC piles. That’s the plan at least!

For all of you who don’t know what Top Ten Tuesday is, or don’t know how to get involved, click here. The lovely folks at Broke and Bookish teamed together to create this awesome weekly prompt, which is now hosted by the wonderful Jana @ The Artsy Reader Girl. Then you simply get listing!

Seasonal Goals

The weather is changing, the days are getting shorter, and I am looking longingly at my jumpers, which can mean only one thing: autumn is coming! And with autumn comes lots of things that I love, proper football nights under the floodlights, hot chocolates and fancy lattes, pumpkins and Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving and lots of friends and family birthdays. I love autumn, it’s probably my favourite season.
