Book Blogger Hop!

The Book Blogger Hop is of course brought to us by Crazy for Books. This week's question is:

“What are you most looking forward to this fall/autumn season – A particular book release? Halloween? The leaves changing color? Cooler temperatures? A vacation? (If your next season is other than fall/autumn, tell us about it and what you are most looking forward to in your part of the world!)”

Let's see...I am definitely looking forward to November because my best friend and I are heading to Washington, D.C., for a long weekend to visit our other friend who teaches there. I also have another friend from college who just moved there, so I'll get to see her too! I haven't been to D.C. in at least 15 years, so I am really looking forward to it. It'll be a nice break from teaching and I love traveling.

I'm also looking forward to cooler weather. It was a hot, hot summer here in Michigan and I can't wait to wear jeans and hoodies/sweaters outside instead of shorts and tank tops while dripping with sweat (you're welcome for that visual). And of course, there will definitely be bonfires! My favorite!

Anything you are looking forward to?


  1. Love the fall also, have a happy Friday!

  2. This week’s question is perfect for Labor Day weekend with the “official” end of summer and all.

    I’m all about fall! I love all four seasons and I’m sorry to see summer go (I hope to get in a few more swims in my pool) but I’m also amped up for Autumn.


    For most of the same reasons we all like autumn – fall foods, Halloween, the chill in the air, changing leaves and candy corn. But I’ve got a scary slant to why I’m angling for autumn. Hop on over to my book blog at to read all about the murder, mayhem, seriously spooky stuff and even some BSP!

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!

  3. My sister lives just outside of D.C.-it's a great place to visit. Was it even too hot in Michigan this year? Ugh. Enjoy your bonfires!

  6. D.C. is such a fun place to walk around. I love the cherry blossom trees near the White House when they're in bloom. Seeig the city with friends makes it even better.

    Good luck with this blog. I totally will be hard for us to keep up with grading/planning/reading/blogging, but we can do it! Stay strong. Blogging tends to take up a little too much of my time, but it's fun! Now that I have a grip on my classroom curriculum, I have a lot more free time- that is, until my yearbook deadlines start popping up all over the place. Pretty soon I won't be able to put my hands on a single book:( How many years have you been teaching? Good luck on Tuesday!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following you now.
