Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and travel. 

Come hang out with me.

Autumn Sneaking In

Autumn Sneaking In

This morning feels like autumn is coming in hot - or cool, I suppose πŸ˜‚. I want to take full advantage of enjoying my gorgeous outside plants before the frost comes in - I’m fully in love how my deck pots turned out this year. πŸ’™πŸŒΏSo while I’m not QUITE prepared for the season to change, I am LOVING that my weekend mornings of outside reading are now the perfect temperature for reading socks and a cozy cardigan. The key here is that I can still read outside in the morning. You hear that Mother Earth?! We are COMPRISING HERE - no full season change yet please. β˜€οΈπŸŒŽπŸ‚πŸ˜‚

This morning I am fully into Anarchy by @megandevosbooks - I’m thrilled to be a stop on the blog tour for this book next week, so stay tuned for a full review! So many thanks to Orion Books for the copy! #partner #freebookπŸ”₯

Anarchy is the first book in a four part series, and its like the Hunger Games meeting The Road.  When the world has changed, and there is no government, no rules and no guarantee you will survive, who do you trust?  

I'm already almost halfway through this book, and fully ready to dive into the next three books.  Last year I fell into a binge watching fest of The 100 on Netflix, and this series almost feels like a natural extension of that.  I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I cleared my weekend schedule so I could get some concentrated reading time in, so I also plan to dive into The Cabin at the End of the World, which you guys all tell me I am going to love, and Clifford, which I expect to be a heart breaker of a book - and one that is firmly in the #ownvoices camp. πŸ“šπŸ’™πŸ“š

QOTD: Are you guys ready for the season change? What is your favourite season for reading? I mean I DO love autumn, but just NOT YET. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

If you are getting ready for fall, then I won’t lie, guys you need a pair of these @peonyandmoss socks - I’m going to be ordering about 10 more pairs, because the cold seasons are long, and I think I found a cure. You can get 10% off when you use CANDICE10 at checkout!!! 

Happy Saturday y’all!!!
