September Preorders I’m Excited to Read

In the northern hemisphere, with the turn to September, summer is finally feeling like it is over. Summer is my least favorite season. Being that hot is miserable not to mention there are never that many book releases in the summer that get my excited. But, with the change to cooler weather, my list of anticipated books grows longer!

So far for September I have six books already preordered…that I know of. Honestly, I feel like I am missing one and I’m just not all that sure what it is. I suppose it will be a surprise when it shows up. Despite my lack of memory in this case, I’d like to share the six books that I know will be be showing up for me in September.

August Wrap Up

August 2021 brought the return of my reading mojo! Every July, like clockwork, I find myself in a reading slump but I am very happy to say that it seems to have fizzled into thin air in August. In fact, it was my most successful reading month so far this year. I thought I would never top the thirteen books I read in March but August is closing out with fifteen along with two short story romances that I didn’t record because they were largely skimmed. Here’s what went down with my reading and on Literary Weaponry during the month.

The Fantasy Tropes Book Tag

I found this tag at And On She Reads and it seemed like a fun little tag to go through. Sometimes bookish tags are just fun little windows into your own personal bookish world! It is just sitting and pondering the books you’ve read or that are on your TBR that could fit each prompt. It is also relaxing which is a high priority this time of year. Fantasy has also been my favorite genre for years and I’ve made it well known that I love me a good trope. So, let’s take a dive into those tropes and see what we see.

Spooky Season TBR

Everyone, it is time once again for the absolute joy that is Spooky Season. Octobertime. Halloween. Fall Vibes. Whatever you want to call it, it is just around the corner. I for one cannot wait! First of all, it has felt as if I am roasting alive for the last two months and I’m longing for that cooler fall weather and hot tea on the patio. It is going to be spectacular.

Along with the more manageable weather comes one of the best parts of the year, the fall/spooky season TBR. I’m not usually one for setting TBRs (I typically fail miserably at that) but I love putting together a list of books that give me that fall vibe to give myself something to choose from while I sip my very basic pumpkin coffee.

What Should I Read Next?

We have all done it. We finish a book, are in the mood to read another, but just can’t decide what to read next. No matter whether you are a TBR type reader or a mood reader, I feel like we have all been there at one point or another. Unread books run amok in our homes, our “want to read” files are miles long, ARCs are demanding our attention, but nothing is quite hitting the spot.

So, I thought today we would sit together and take a gander at a few of the books that are most drawing my eye right now and see if we can’t find something to read.
