Goodbye summer, Hello fall.
Do you love fall as much as me?
I love fall for, cooler temps, foliage trips, and wearing sweaters and jeans once again. I also like the fact that my reading choices tend to change with some seasons as well. Summer for me means a craving for lighter beach reads - the kind of books some people call "woman's fiction". Maine, by Courtney Sullivan was a good example. In fall and winter, I crave more thrillers and mysteries, so the RIP Challenge is one I like to participate in. I love reading mysteries in front of the fireplace while wrapped in comfy quilt and having a cup of tea or coffee. This coming Sunday I hope to compile a list of fall titles I'd like to tackle, and I'll be asking if you have any favorites from my list which will help me decide.
How did your reading go in September? I was pleased with what I read, and or listened to. I read (9) books and reviewed (8) so far.
