Duration: September 22 - December 20

Theme: Autumn or Fall, and anything that reminds you of the season.

Some ideas:

A Thanksgiving (or any Autumn) celebration takes place in the story.

A character's name is Autumn.

The book is published during September, October, November, or December.

The cover has Autumn or Fall colors.

If YOU can link it to Autumn or Fall, it counts!

Rules:

All books must remind you of Autumn or Fall, or be connected to Autumn or Fall in some way.

You can read as few or as many books as you choose.

To qualify, books must be started on or after September 22 and finished on or before December 20.

You can list your books ahead or post them as you go.

You can edit your reading selections at anytime, up to December 20.

Please remember:

When posting your updates be sure and post the number of books you've completed at the top of your post. This makes it easier for me to find your update and post it.

ilovebakedgoods (Teresa) (ilovebakedgoods) I'm in and I'm not sure what I'm going to read yet. I will definitely read It Happened One Autumn because it's the one I need to read next anyway! Other than that,I need to consider my theme.

Things that make me think "Fall":
Crisp leaves
Fall colors (red, orange, yellow, brown, eggplant, hunter green)
Apples
Pumpkins
Gourds
Halloween
Trick-or-Treating
Hot Apple Cider
Cornucopia
Thanksgiving
Harvest
Sweaters
Boots
Comfort Food
Muffins
Baking
Family

Ideas:
Spell-out one of the above words; read books with covers in the colors of autumn; books with Autumn or Fall in the title; character named Autumn; book takes place in Autumn; supernatural/Halloween types of plot or characters; book published in Sept/Oct/Nov/Dec; takes place in New England or the Midwest (where leaves tend to change colors more frequently than other areas); book is predominantly about family/family ties; items on cover that remind me of fall: leaves, sweaters, boots, mug of hot beverage, pumpkins, apples, gourds, quick breads, Halloween-related, Thanksgiving-related.

message 33: by Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen) , Certifiable St. Vinnie's Ninny (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen)  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments No problem! I even double-checked my count. :)


message 34: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments LOL!! My eyes are so bad. Seriously, bad. Without glasses, I'm all up in the monitor and using fingers to keep count. And sometimes toes.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen)  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments I often use my fingers to count. I think that's why God gave us ten. :)

He wasn't expecting scientists to discover that new whatever number... the one that goes on forever?

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen)  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments Oh, you mean Pi. I'm sure he knew that would happen, but anything after multiples of ten is impractical anyway. :)

No, a new number... About a year ago....


message 39: by Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen) , Certifiable St. Vinnie's Ninny (new)

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Winter Frost Queen)  (gatadelafuente) | 3737 comments that's a new one for me. Do you have an article link of something?


message 40: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Nope! I'll see if my husband remembers...it had something to do with zeroes and a number being infinite...I think.


message 41: by Ariana (new)

Ariana (oh2ny) | 102 comments I haven't forgotten!! I will be posting later today the books. I'm in my last semester of school so I got caught up in the work! I need some fun reads!

Oh, and are you all talking about the discovery of the new prime number. It's something like 16 million digits long. I only know about it because we discussed it in a course I took last semester. I'm not a math person. :)


message 42: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Ariana! That's it! I knew someone would eventually have the information!


message 43: by BJ Rose (new)

BJ Rose (bjrose) | 848 comments OK, I finally have my theme - I'm going to read books from my TBR that were published in Sept., Oct., Nov., or Dec. I went through my books and found 22 that fit - and no, I'm not going to try for that many! I'll start with a goal of 10 and see what happens.

Will post as I go...


message 44: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Awesome, BJ!


message 45: by Ariana (last edited Nov 01, 2013 03:43PM) (new)

Ariana (oh2ny) | 102 comments Yay! I'm glad I could help with the number.

"The Autumn Bride"- Anne Gracie
"It Happened One Autumn"- Lisa Kleypas

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments "It Happened One Autumn"- Lisa Kleypas
"Always on My Mind"- Jill Shalvis


LOVED these books!

"The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After"- Julia Quinn

CAN'T WAIT to read this one!


message 47: by Alycia (new)

Alycia | 1478 comments I loved the Bridgertons Happily Ever After. It reminded me why I loved that series so much.

Ariana, I thought the Bookstore also had a fall look to it. I'm contemplating that one and I definitely will use JQ's new release... Cannot wait! :)

Dhes, did you get to review The Sum of All Kisses?


message 48: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments Aly, no I have read Sum of all Wishes. Is it good?


message 49: by Alycia (new)

Alycia | 1478 comments UniquelyMoi *Dhestiny* BlithelyBookish wrote: "Aly, no I have read Sum of all Wishes. Is it good?"

It comes out Oct 29th. I haven't read it yet but can't wait. I was hoping you got to read it early for review and could tell us how it was.


message 50: by UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish, Your Humble Servant (new)

UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish | 8001 comments I have it. When I finish Tessa Dares books, I'll read it.
