A quick one today, friends! We've been spending the weekend with our families celebrating the birthdays of our sons (3 days and several years apart!) so it's been pretty packed. Despite how busy it's been, we are still finding time to break into our fall decor and pick up some good books. What are you reading this weekend, friends? Anything good?

 

Around the Web

Did anyone else have the same experience discovering the beauty of language through Francesca Lia Block as a tween or teen?? I definitely did.

Loved the Crazy Rich Asians movie?? Here are some books you should read next!

A book list based on the Rory + Jess ship? Um, yes please! Team Jess forever, and I could use some books with that dynamic, for sure.

If you're looking for some solid recs for character driven novels, Sarah has a great list of some she couldn't put down. We see a few that are on our TBR's!

I love seeing small presses highlighted, and this one looks fabulous.

What We're Reading

Michaela - I've had a slow reading week between company and birthdays, but I'm finishing up Where the Crawdads Sing, and also getting into Gentleman and Players to satisfy my campus novel craving.

Rikki - I'm currently enjoying a much anticipated read of The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, she's so good, oh my gosh. Slow reading through Leaf Storms and As I Lay Dying, which were coincidentally, perfect for the seasonal shift.
