Friends! It is that time again:
What? Oh. Yeah. Carl announced this TWO WEEKS AGO. But time just got away from me and suddenly it’s almost October and while I’ve been reading plenty of RIP books, I haven’t been talking about them. I’m fashionably late, as they say. But I’ve also noticed that I’m having the hardest time coming up with good ideas for books to read now that I’ve almost finished The Monstrumology series by Rick Yancey (get thee to a bookstore and BUY THESE, or to a library and check them out, especially if you are RIPing at the moment). I asked for suggestions three years ago during RIP and got some amazing answers. In fact, one of them ended up being one of my favorite reads of the year: Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury. I’ve also loved We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson andThe House Next Door by Anne Rivers Siddons. So please… could you help me out again?
Tell me what I should read this year to get in the autumn spirit. Tell me what books will make it feel like fall, will make me excited for one of my favorite holidays, Halloween.
Thank you in advance. You are all fabulous, but you already knew that.
