Happy Pride to everyone celebrating it!
Between Pride festivities, other summer festivals, time spent in nature, and the hot, humid days of summer, it feels a little hard to believe that autumn is only a few months away.
At this time of year, summer seems it will last forever…but all seasons end eventually.
I thought it would be interesting to look ahead at some books that have been scheduled to come out this autumn. There were more to add to this list than I thought there would be!
As much as I relish the long, sunny days of summer, there are things to look forward to as the temperatures drop and the days become terribly short, too.
Wednesday’s Child: Stories by Yiyun Li
Release Date: September 5
I Want to Read It Because: It sounds like this collection has a little bit of everything in it. I admire writers who can do that.
Furies by Margaret Atwood
Release Date: September 26
I Want to Read It Because: Ms. Atwood is a must-read author for me. I don’t necessarily like everything she writes, but I give it all a shot because of how often I do enjoy her work.
The Mysteries by Bill Watterson
Release Date: October 10
I Want to Read It Because: I was a huge fan of his Calvin & Hobbes comic strips back in the day and can’t wait to see what he’s come up with now.
Green Fuse Burning by Tiffany Morris
Release Date: October of this year (but no specific publication date has been chosen yet)
I Want to Read It Because: 1) I love eco horror, 2) the blurb sounds deliciously scary and possibly perfect for Halloween, and 3) I have not read many Indigenous authors recently and want to change that.
