Cheers to the Weekend 9.21.18

Annnnnnnnd we’re only a week away from October??? But seriously how!? Regardless, we are loving every minute of watching the trees burst into glorious fall color and are over here seriously anticipating our favorite month (and a new dinner party!). This weekend has been low key for the both of us, just taking care of the dreaded “adulting” and spending time with our families. Anyone do anything fun this weekend?

Around the Web

Did you guys see the Man Booker shortlist? I’m impressed with the representation of independent publishers and it also includes the youngest nominee ever!

TBR toppling? Let’s talk about the merits of erasing it.

We aren’t the only ones excited about fall reads, and for good reason.

Do you follow any authors on Twitter?

We love our banned book club, and these are some of the most beloved books that have been banned.

If you’re struggling with historical fiction, you aren’t alone + some recommendations for unconventional ones you might try!

I’m OBSESSED with this concept and though I’d never fire Gatsby, I do love some of the suggested alternatives.



Stephanie’s feed features lovely photography + great reads; what more could you ask for? 

We love the travel + lifestyle vibes on Tim’s feed!

Need some autumn coziness? Head over to this gorgeous feed.

What We're Reading

Michaela - I’m settling in with The Lies of Locke Lamora, but I’ve also got my eye on Warbreaker for book club!

Rikki - I’m still immensely enjoying The Picture of Dorian Gray, satirical and hilarious! I’m also reading Autumn and As I Lay Dying. We have a lot of working going on around our homestead, so reading is getting neglected a bit, I’ll likely spend the rest of the month finishing these novels.
