Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts (12)

Hey y'all!  
I'm linking up with Bookish (And Not So Bookish Thoughts) over at Bookishly Boisterous this week.

1.) I'm feeling a little burned out on historical fiction right now.  I have one historical fiction book for review right now but otherwise, I think I'm going to take a little break from the genre and read other things.  Usually more than half of what I read is HF but this year that is so not the case.

2.) As always, I've been a terrible blogger lately.  I have lots of things I want and need to post but just haven't had the motivation to do it.

3.) I'm so excited for Fall!  I love when the weather starts to get cool and I love all the fun holidays.  I'm also excited to start baking pumpkin treats.  I hate pumpkin spice flavored things but I love pumpkin bread, pie, cookies, cake, etc.  Last year my favorite pumpkin treat was this pumpkin pie cake.  It's so good!

4.) Speaking of Fall holidays, I ordered this Rockford Peach costume for Julia for Halloween.  I hope it fits!  If it doesn't, I think we'll just have her dress up as Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  I'm trying to take advantage of the fact that I can still pick her costumes because I'm guessing that won't be an option next year.

5.) Since I'm not reading much historical fiction these days, I've been filling my time with a Harry Potter re-read and silly romance novels.  It's embarrassing to admit but my brain just can't take more than that these days.

6.) We got rid of cable early this summer and now use NetFlix and AmazonPrime.  I've started binge watching Criminal Minds and I'm now more paranoid then ever.  That show is creepy as all get out and that's coming from a huge Law and Order: SVU fan.  Number one thing I've learned: ALWAYS lock your doors.

I hope you all have a great week!


  1. I've also been rereading (listening to) the Harry Potter books. I'm on the last book now. Criminal Minds (and Law and Order: SVU) are some of my favourites. They are so addictive.

  2. Fall is the season of Pumpkin muffins from Dunkin' Donuts which to me is a legal form of crack. I just can't get enough of them. I can't wait to get the Fall garland up around the house. I say goodbye to summer! I've had enough!
