Happy Fall, Y’all

Happy FallThe kiddos (for those of us that have said children) are back in school, the air is beginning to cool off (finally), and the leaves are starting to fall.

It’s that time of year, again, to snuggle up inside with a good book and the hot drink of your choice.

Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. More so than spring, fall reminds me of new beginnings (all those new school years for me and then the kids) meant possibility. Anything could happen, there were fresh books to be read, and new fall fashion to wear. I loved the start of a school year. I’d make new friends (I told myself), have a makeover (this never actually happened), and find a new boy (I was not the many-boyfriends type). I was, and am, a nerd.

I live in West Virginia; four season country I’ve heard it called. We have beautiful fall foliage at the end of September through October. I love all those colors. Even though I know it means the leaves will all fall off and the trees will look depressingly naked by winter, I can’t not revel in the reds, oranges, yellows, and purples. It’s like someone got creative with one of those coloring book apps, the ones designed to relax you. Autumn colors are my zen.

Finally, my favorite part–the staying inside and reading part. No one’s telling you that you should be outside, enjoying the hotter than Hades weather (not a summer person, here). It’s perfectly acceptable to get a coffee, cocoa, or whatever your Keurig can dream up and settle in with a book. I’ve got Susan Elizabeth’s Phillips‘ new one (First Star I See Tonight) resting on my e-reader now, just waiting for me to open it up. At the moment, I’m reading (and enjoying) Lover’s Leap by Kimberly Keyes.

What’s your favorite part of fall? And, by the way, what book would you recommend?

I need more books, people. Fall lasts for three months, you know.

About Lori Sizemore

Lover of nail polish, pens, her Kindle, and fresh coffee. She likes romance filled with messy, real characters and lots of snarky banter. Reading was (and still is!) her BFF; when she discovered writing she fell in love. Come for the snark. Stay for the story.
