There is a bit of a debate amongst readers about whether audiobooks actually count as reading. In my opinion, they absolutely do! You are listening to the book, yes, but you are still receiving and retaining the story or information just as you would with a physical book.

Havenfall by Sara Holland ~ 320 pages ~ to be published 3/3/20 by Bloomsbury YA
A safe haven between four realms. The girl sworn to protect it–at any cost.
Hidden deep in the mountains of Colorado lies the Inn at Havenfall, a sanctuary that connects ancient worlds–each with their own magic–together. For generations, the inn has protected all who seek refuge within its walls, and any who disrupt the peace can never return.

Just having a guide that will lead me towards books that I might not otherwise pick up is going to be fun for me.

It is also the time of year for me to pull out my more spooky reads. Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m a giant weenie. So, no horror for me! But, books with a gothic/mysterious/atmospheric edge are definitely in the game.
So, here is a list of the books that I want to read this fall!
