September in Books + October to Read

Blogging, Book Reviews

September went by kind of quickly, or at least it seemed that way. It still doesn’t feel like October here though. According to my father the difference in temperature between here and my hometown is around 30-40 degrees. Aka. It’s in the low 60s and high 50s there and it still reaches into the low 90s here from time to time. Like, what? I’m still being delusional and wearing sweaters though because October is supposed to be sweater weather, excuse me, Texas, get your shit together. Everyone keeps telling me that I’ll be happy once it hits December/January/February since it’ll only get down to 32 degrees maybe once or twice, but I’m still not 100% convinced that I’ll enjoy giving up my three favorite months (September/October/November). And the reason they were (still are I guess???) my favorite months was mainly for up North reasons like the 60 degree days, the misty rain, the changing leaves, the apple festivals and you know, fall things. But, whatever, let’s talk about book instead!
