So I Write

A blog all about books, writing, baking, and life as a woman in her twenties

Happy almost October! I can’t believe September is almost over already! I feel like I say that every month. But for those of you have been reading my blog lately, you know that I am getting married at the beginning of November, so I am VERY happy every time a month passes and I get closer and closer to that wonderful day. While we wait, there’s some fantastic novels coming out over the month of October, so you should check them out!

Happy Tuesday! I know my blogging—and my reading—has taken a bit of a backseat lately, partly because of wedding planning and house buying, and partly because of something new I’m starting! My fiancé Bryce and I have started a new gluten-free bakery business, and I just couldn’t wait to announce it to you! For now, we are taking local orders through Facebook or over the phone, and we will be at the Lexington Market at Icehouse over the next few weekends, but we are hoping to have a website up soon! So keep your eyes out for more news about that soon!

Happy almost September! Can you believe that August is already almost over?! I feel like it just started, and yet here we are, with another month waving goodbye. It’s crazy how quickly this year has gone. There are quite a few things that I am looking forward to though, one of which is all of the amazing books that are releasing this month! With everything going on—wedding planning, looking for a house, and a new business that I am starting that I will have to tell you ALL about in another post—I haven’t really had a lot of time for reading lately, and that has been really sad. I have been attempting to read my advance reader copy of As the Light Fades, which I have really been enjoying so far, and Diamond in the Rough is already waiting on my shelf to be picked up next, so hopefully you will be hearing about those here soon. That’s another thing I’ve been missing: I’ve hardly had time to post anything here too! I’m sorry I have been neglecting all of you lovely readers, and I hope to do better about that in the weeks to come. But for now, take a look at these fantastic novels I hope to read soon, if all the planning will finally slow down and let me get around to it!

Happy almost August! I’m so excited that another month is almost gone, because that means I am one month closer to my wedding! I feel like the days are passing SOOO slowly, though at the same time I am somewhat glad they are because I am nowhere near finished planning. I honestly feel like I should write a post or two about wedding planning or how life is going right now for me, so we’ll see. For now, here’s a fun picture of me and my fiancé from our engagement shoot. (Isn’t he just the sweetest???)

Happy Tuesday! This week I am revisiting a weekly linkup that I really love but just haven’t been able to keep up with lately called Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Top Ten Tuesday is all about books and lists—two of my all-time favorite things, which is probably why I love it so much. This week’s top ten list is Top Ten Auto Buy Authors, meaning the top ten authors whose books we automatically buy, sometimes even without knowing anything about that particular book. When I normally talk about auto-buy authors, I think about authors whose new releases I immediately preorder, even if the synopsis hasn’t been released yet, because I cannot imagine not owning anything new they come out with. The funny thing is, because of this stupid thing called a budget and the fact that weddings are super, SUPER expensive, I haven’t preordered a book in quite some time.

However, I do still think about preordering books (I just can’t help myself), and I do immediately add new books to my TBR list all the time, so I think that counts for this kind of list. And believe me, if I could preorder books as often as I would like, I totally would. So, let me get started listing these authors for you! And for each author, I’m going to add an image of the cover of their most recent book that I have read, just because I love sharing about how awesome their books are.

Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene…and it might be killing her career.

When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.
