August is a big old mess. We’re moving at the end of the month to a bigger apartment and I am excited about that, but that means that my focus and time for reading are super limited and I’m busy and just ahhhh I can’t wait for the month to be over.
I know I’m going to miss the summer once it’s gone, but here’s what I’m looking forward to in the fall…
New apartment – Well duh. A two-bedroom townhouse with a basement and everything. GONNA HAVE TO MUCH MORE ROOM YESSSSSS. And we’ll be getting a washer and dryer, like adults dammit!
Reading outside – Our new place has a deck right off of the kitchen. I am so looking forward to reading on the deck, even if it means being bundled up in sweaters and a blanket and drinking coffee or tea.
Non-fiction November – I ALWAYS forget about this, but not this year! I have an Amazon wishlist going of non-fiction books to choose from for November and I am so excited about it.
Book Riot Live – One of my goals for this year was to go to Book Riot Live and I’m about 90% sure that I’ll be buying tickets soon. So if you are going, PLEASE TELL ME SO WE CAN SAY HI!
Book Riot Live reading – I also made an Amazon wishlist to keep track of the authors that will be there and their books, so I can attempt to read some before going. Very excited about the line-up so far.
The election being over – I am terrified that Trump will win, but at the very, very least the anticipation and worrying about the results will be over.
Chicken pot pie – I only make chicken pot pie from September to March/April. Also looking forward to chili, stews, etc. COMFORT FOOD!
Decorating for Christmas – Since we’ll be in a bigger place, I can bring my really big Christmas tree back out again. It’s been 3 years. Last year I didn’t even put up the little tree because it seemed like too much work for such a small space.
Luke Cage – September 30th, baby! Gonna binge watch the crap out of it.
And I’m sure there’s more, but this is a pretty fantastic list right here. What are you looking forward to once fall hits?
