It's October, which means The Month When Everything Gets Published For Some Reason. Is it people going back to school? Settling in for the certainly long winter? WHO KNOWS, but these are all damn exciting books and I want to read them all:
Then Comes Marriage, Roberta Kaplan. Note: I have finished this and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Let's all read about gay rights and then have a celebratory dance party, which I shall DJ as I do not dance.
The Witches, Stacy Schiff. Currently residing at my girlfriend's apartment, but I am totes going to read it, because Salem witch trials, who doesn't want that in October.
Lafayette in the Somewhat United States, Sarah Vowell. I know Vowell didn't plan for the publication of this to coincide with Hamilton madness, but that is FORTUITOUS timing and I already think this book is the bee's knees as of a quarter of the way through it.
Carry On, Rainbow Rowell. Yeah, like we're not reading the newest RR book.
The Sword of Summer, Rick Riordan. My Rick Riordan craze happened RIGHT before I started book blogging, but this latest mythology series of his is about Norse mythology and GOOD LORD I WILL BE READING IT.
The Givenness of Things, Marilynne Robinson. Aren't we all supposed to love Marilynne Robinson? She seems so wise. So I'm pretty sure essays by her are a thing that should be read.
EXCITED FIST BUMP, EVERYONE.
