As the leaves turn glorious colors and the temps get into the I-think-I-need-a-jacket-today range, we think it’s a safe bet that many of us are looking forward to “chillaxin'” days of being curled up with a furry pet and a good read.
With that in mind, here are our picks for Books and Pets to Curl Up With This Fall.
Books and Pets to Curl Up With This Fall | Beth and Penny’s Picks
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But the danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.”
· People can rely on me, but I can’t rely on myself.
· How can I help someone to follow good advice?
· People say I ask too many questions.
· How do I work with someone who refuses to do what I ask or who keeps telling me what to do?
With sharp insight, compelling research, and hilarious examples, The Four Tendencies will help you get happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative. It’s far easier to succeed when you know what works for you.”
When Sal Leon steals a poster announcing open auditions for the Left Hand, a powerful collection of the Queen’s personal assassins named for the rings she wears — Ruby, Emerald, Amethyst, and Opal — their world changes. They know it’s a chance for a new life.
Except the audition is a fight to the death filled with clever circus acrobats, lethal apothecaries, and vicious ex-soldiers. A childhood as a common criminal hardly prepared Sal for the trials. But Sal must survive to put their real reason for auditioning into play: revenge.”
A quick YA read that would be perfect to curl up with on a Friday night!

I’m in the thick of motherhood right now with a busy 18th month old son at home, so I’ve found my reading time dramatically reduced. It’s hard for me because I LOVE to read, and nothing is better than a cold day, a warm blanket and a good book.
My preferred genre is fiction with a splash of mystery, love, and humor. I’m also a big fan of series’ – I love reading books about the same character, once I feel like we’ve become friends.
One of my favorite series is written by Minnesota author, Jess Lourey. She’s the author of the Murder by Month series; a set of 12 books, one named after and set in each month of the year.
The first book in the series is The Murder by Month Series by Jess Lourey and it continues on from there.
I found them to be so fun and filled with mystery that once I finished one, I couldn’t wait to start the next one. They’re perfect for a cozy fall book-marathon; the book lover’s version of a Netflix binge.
Now, to carve out some time in my mom-schedule so I can dive into them again!
