Okay, I know we're not quite there yet - the official start of fall isn't for another month or so -
but here in the northeast, things are already starting to cool off (thank goodness!) It
's still pretty warm in the afternoons, but the mornings have been crisp and cool lately, and they'vebeen getting me in the mood for all the fun thingsautumn brings: pumpkin picking, Halloween, cozy sweaters and brightly colored leaves!
But another great thing about the fall is the return to what I call "paranormal fun!" Have you
ever noticed that paranormal-themed books all tend to have an autumnal feel, even if they don't necessarily take place in the fall? I suppose it's because vampires especially have to live in rainier climes so they don't have to worry about the sun so much. Of course, witches bring to mind Halloween, which is inherently a fall holiday. And I would imagine werewolves choose the cooler climes just to…stay cool. I would too if I had to wear all that fur!
So now I have the daunting task of either finding new "paranormal fun" to read, or revisiting
old favorites. On the list of old favorites are some YA series: Harry Potter, Evernight and Twilight (yes, I'm a Twihard and I'm proud of it!) I've yet to read the Vampire Diaries, but I'm obsessed with the show (when are you coming back to me, Damon??? When?!?!?) And the Evermore series by Alison Noel holds some appeal for me.
It's still a little early to choose my Fall Reading Lineup, so I'm taking suggestions! What do you like to read when the weather turns cooler? I would love some new material to curl up with while I drink my butterbeer :)
