Hello everyone, happy Sunday. I feel like I have alot of updates to share, but don’t know where to start. Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? What?!

Happy Sunday everyone. It is a rainy one here in Jersey with flash flood alerts for later today. I got my errands run yesterday early so today I can just lounge at home in my pj’s and relax. I also bought my Halloween costume, which was really putting a few things together to wear. We are dressing up at work as our “future selves”, so I got what I thought I would look like in my 80’s, white wig and head kerchief included. It should be interesting. Are you dressing up for Halloween?

Top Ten Tuesday 10/10/17: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes

ttt

Happy Tuesday everyone. This week’s TTT theme is Fall. This is my favorite season so this list was alot of fun to come up with. I am definitely a seasonal reader. I won’t read summer themed books in the winter or wintery books in the summer etc. I read with the seasons. I really enjoy Autumn, the vibrant colors, the cooler weather, pumpkin and apple picking, Halloween, Thanksgiving… it’s a cozy time in general. Here’s my list:

October 10: Ten Books With Fall/Autumn Covers/Themes (If the cover screams fall to you, or the books give off a feeling of being Fallish)

1. The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson. My copy is well read. I like the way she wrote about nature.

edg
2. Edgar Allan Poe: Complete Tales and Poems This one has a permanent spot on my shelves and The Telltale Heart is a favorite so is The Raven. Poe’s dramatic and intense stories and poems make for perfect Fall reading.

Good morning blogland, can you believe the first week in October is already over? I hope you are all doing well. I feel like I almost don’t even know what to talk about this morning. These are crazy, crazy times we are living in. I’ve stopped watching the news the past few days, I can’t bear to look anymore.

Well, it’s a rainy Sunday here in NJ and I’ll be doing some blog hopping this morning before getting back to my current read, which is perfect for this time of year. It’s actually a re-read for me and I’m almost finished.
