Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

I can’t decide if I’m pleased I get to post today or not. I have nothing macabre to discuss… My kids don’t dress up anymore… And few kids even trick or treat in my neighborhood… But today’s my day.

We’re all well into fall by now, so that’s what I’ll discuss. It’s been a busy time for me. I am writing two books simultaneously – never done that before – and assisting my daughter as she applies to college.

But I’m still reading… And that’s what I’d like to share with you today. Here are the books, I’m digging into right now and I’d love to hear what’s on your bedside table and what you feel are the great books to share today.

Dear Fahrenheit 451: This is a completely charming collection of love letters and break-up letters to books. I’m reading it slowly and savoring each letter.

Nine Women, One Dress: Need I say more. We women understand the transformative power of the “little black dress.”

A Christmas Carol: It’s a little early, perhaps. But I’m thinking of some Dickensian tones for my next book so it’s time to get reading.

You Can Fix Your Brain: I’ve been in a deep dive for knowledge regarding inflammation and autoimmune diseases for the past year and this caught my eye. It has not disappointed in brining me amazing information.

And last, but not least…

The Printed Letter Bookshop: My next novel is now in ARC form and I’m editing it line by line, page by page… And I still love the story. Can’t wait for it to hit bookstores next May so I can share these three women with you.

So amidst all the business of fall and the upcoming holiday, I hope you have a chance to slow down and savor some beautiful words. Please leave in the comments books you recommend.

Thank you!

  1. For the last several Hallowe’ens, I have read or re-read Wendy Sotis’ brilliant All Hallow’s Eve which is a completely brilliant book, one of my all-time favorite Austenesque tales! It’s simply magical, in all the best ways! My favorite scene is when Lady Catherine meets Elizabeth…the scene to beat all scenes!! 😀

    How is the You Can Fix Your Brain book? I have autoimmune issues as do most of my kids, and I know my memory is seriously compromised. And our youngest (a freshman in college) is struggling so much in his classes because his memory just won’t work well for him. His major is skills-associated (video game design), but getting through all of the GE courses is really discouraging him. He isn’t sure he’s going to be able to stay at college with such a weak working memory.

    Thanks for reporting in on what you’re reading this fall and on your new book in ARC!! Congratulations!! 😀

    Susanne 🙂

    • Hey Susanne, I highly recommend the book. It really, in practical and non-terrifying ways — showed me where I could be headed and how to travel a different road. The Autoimmune Solution is another great book to start with as calming the autoimmunes helps the brain. All the best… Katherine

  2. For Halloween time and autumn through winter, I definitely recommend The Dark is Rising series by Susan Cooper. Right now, though, I’m reading Faebourne, a Regency Romance by M Pepper Langlinais and I’m really enjoying it 🙂

    • NO WAY! You just named one of my all time favorite books. The movie was horrid, by the way. But all those books… Have you read the whole series? I am a huge Susan Cooper fan!

  3. I read so many books it’s hard to make a recomendation! I love a Christmas Carol at Christmas ,it is a great read! If course I also like A Darcy Christmas too!lol Can’wait for the new book!
