October is in full swing and we are HERE FOR IT. We’re enjoying the beginning of the rainy fall afternoons and lighting all the pumpkin candles while we cozy up with our current reads. Aside from books, plans this weekend include a trip to the pumpkin patch, baking up some seasonal treats, and meeting up for one of our weekly Saturday morning breakfast dates! What about you guys? What are you up to?

What We're Reading

Michaela - I’m having a love affair with War and Peace. Yes that War and Peace. I know it’s huge, but it’s so readable and just…good. Aside from that my entire October TBR is sci-fi/fantasy novels, and I’m knee deep into A Winter’s Promise right now, and will likely finish it this weekend! Then it’s on to Frankenstein for our read-along.

Rikki - Class is over, and I’m hoping that means I can finish off As I Lay Dying and Autumn, but honestly, I'm really enjoying the slow reading and time to sit with them. I also started This is How It Always Is, and it’s kind of blowing my mind. It’s really, very good.
