Fall Reads

It's finally fall, which means spooky season is upon us. Halloween is my favorite holiday I love all the fall season activities, and fall is the perfect time to curl up with a book. That being said I have been in a major reading slump. I have been on the hunt for some good books and I think I have a good fall TBR list going on. I have a good mix from rom com to thriller, hopefully everyone can find inspiration for their own fall reads from this list. 

Happy fall.
