Leaves falling leaves GIF on GIFER - by Malkree

We’re knee-deep in fall here in the northern hemisphere, and the temperature is finally beginning to cool down here in San Diego. Which for me means more time curled up reading books and drinking fall beverages, which for me means pumpkin spice everything.

Today I’m sharing 5 books with fall vibes that you all should read, as well as my dupe recipe for Starbucks’ pumpkin cream cold brew. Get in your cozy spot and grab your favorite beverage!

8 Anticipated Reads Hitting the Shelves in November & December 2020

I can’t believe it’s almost November and time for another edition of Anticipated Reads! Just like last year, November and December are a bit on the lighter side release-wise so I’ve combined them into this post. (I’d recommending getting your pre-orders in for these early, especially for gifts, because of supply-chain issues relating to COVID-19.)

Now more than ever, authors need our support as the publishing industry has been severely impacted by event and convention cancellations. If you see any books that look interesting, I encourage you to talk about them on your socials, add to Goodreads shelves, submit requests to your libraries if you have one, or buy if you’re financially able!

📝 In case you are wondering how I manage to keep track of upcoming releases and choose the books I’m excited to highlight monthly, check out my Edelweiss 2.0 Guide!

A September Book Haul // the month I behaved

Another month has come and gone, and it’s time for another book haul to see what I added to my bookshelves in September! Thanks to money being tight these days, I have reigned in my book spending quite a bit. Most of the books I got in September were pre-orders that I paid for months ago.

As always, I want to reiterate that you do not need to buy and own a lot of books in order to be considered a book blogger or lover. I am quite frugal with everything else so that I can buy books because I love them, but I do not ever want to make you feel bad if you cannot afford to buy books or have poor access where you live.

Review: None Shall Sleep by Ellie Marney

Did I finish None Shall Sleep or did it finish me?

🔪 I literally had to muffle a SCREAM that literally came out of my mouth when a ~thing~ surprised me at 11pm
🔪 I was so engrossed that I lost hours and forgot to feed my cat dinner until almost midnight
🔪 I finished at 2am and am still thinking about the book days later

If you need a TL;DR: I loved this book so much I lost all sense of time & recommend this to fans of Criminal Minds and Silence of the Lambs.
