Cheers to the Weekend 9.28.18

Well hello, fall! We are getting into full swing with ombre trees and falling leaves, crisp mornings and increasingly chilly nights. We’re soaking it up, and we’ve got family in town this weekend to share the season with this weekend, too. October is just around the corner, and we can’t wait! It’s both of our favorite month here in the PNW, hands down. What are you guys up to this weekend?

Around the Web

We believe in the comfort of re-reading favorite books. Pair that with seasonal reading (insert: read Harry Potter every fall); here’s proof we certainly aren’t the only ones who feel this way.

An intimate insight to a magical part of Paris— Parisian Carousels. We’re in!

We’re so impressed at this list of young authors (5 under 35!). Have you read any of these books?

On that same note: we are equally impressed with authors who still believe in their dreams and writing, no matter their age. I guarantee you’ve read one of these (we have)!

Some of our favorites are on this list of under-appreciated books, which just so happen to be perfect for your fall TBR.

Books from popular authors that you likely haven’t read yet.

An interview with Reese on her latest book, Whiskey in a Teacup.



We love Lupita’s book and beer pairings and the way she shows books in her everyday life

My favorite type of books to read: Diverse Classics, and this account DELIVERS with excellent book choices and monthly discussions

What We're Reading

Michaela - This month has been a frustratingly slow and disappointing reading month for me, but I’m spending the weekend back with the Gentlemen Bastards in The Lies of Locke Lamora, which is such a great, hilariously witty fantasy. I’m also looking forward to picking up my library holds for Lethal White and A Winter’s Promise.

Rikki - I finished The Picture of Dorian Gray this week, and LOVED IT! I’m still reading As I Lay Dying and Autumn, but I’m taking my time with them, as they are to be savored. I’ve also been powering through White Oleander, and I cannot put it down! Lastly, I’m really looking forward to starting Other People’s Love Affairs next. Fingers crossed I can get some solid reading time in this weekend.
