Hello everyone. As I write this California is trying to welcome fall, yet failing miserably. Seasonal rituals are an important part of my life while living in a state that lacks four seasons.
As a reader and Blogger I also apply themes to my reading life. I love a variety of reading genres so themed reading also allows me to binge on one area of my passions and clear my unread books of the shelves. Here are some events I participate in that encourage community with other Bloggers and celebrating the seasons.
For the whole month of October I read and review Horror themed books.
This is my second year participating in this event. I devote the month to reading & reviewing Science Fiction books.
I do reviews with the seasonal reads taglines around Thanksgiving and January. This year I discovered these Thanksgiving themed reads:
Franklin’s Thanksgiving: This is a sweet little read that reminds us that friends are as important as family and the pleasure that can be found in community.
12 Days is my yearly holiday celebration. From December 1st through the 12th I do gift guides, book reviews, interviews and more with a holiday theme. I like to celebrate diversity as well as classic holiday reads so this year I’m reading & Reviewing these:
A Fortnight of Holiday Romance
I close out my reading year with holiday romance, especially historical and Regency period romance.
So what about you guys? Do you have any reading rituals?
