September, here we come! We are downright giddy about entering into the -ber months and welcoming fall and a school routine back into our lives. Both of us had a really amazing reading month in August, and are hoping to keep up the momentum. Fall is our favorite reading season anyway, when the best place to be is on the couch with a hot cup of tea and a good book, and we're thinking about some bigger classics we want to start into. Our summer is decidedly ending, the last heatwave has past, and the mornings are gray and misty again, so we'll be using the mild weather this weekend to be outside as much as possible. What about you?

Have you seen Bookriot's fall readathon? It's great because it's going to focus less on hours read, and more on the seasonal shift to fall reading and will be full of activities, giveaways, and cozy tidbits. Count us in!

What We're Reading
Michaela - I went on a complete reading tear the past few days to hit my Goodreads goal for the year (yay!) and polished off Windhaven, The Best We Could Do, and Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows in a single day so honestly, I might just take a breather this weekend. I know that finishing Where the Crawdads Sing is next, though!
Rikki - I just finished Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, and I'm still reeling in that story. It was so good! I'm also currently, and still, reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond (almost done!) and Cinder. This has been a really great reading month and I'm even more surprised how much I ended up being able to read!
