I don’t know about you, but I freaking love the fall. Maybe it’s because where I live it’s either scorching hot or freezing cold with no in between. Maybe it’s because I’m constantly sweaty (ew, I know) and can’t handle the heat despite being born and raised in the southern part of the US. Maybe it’s because I can finally bust out my comfy sweaters and walk outside without freezing my buttocks off. TL;DR: I like fall because I can go outside and actually enjoy the weather for once. Fall for us lasts maybe one week. Two, if we’re lucky.
So yeah… when I saw this “finally fall” book tag, I knew this was the thing for me. On top of that, I was tagged by the lovely Norees @ No Reads Too Great! Thanks for tagging me!
Hello, lovelies! University has been cranking up its difficulty at the moment and I’ve been struggling to keep up with posting regularly. Thankfully, Marta @ The Book Mermaid saved my butt by tagging me in a nice and easy book tag!
I freaking love fall. Or, more realistically, I love the idea of fall. I live in Texas, so it gets pretty hot in the summer. I recently moved cities now that I’m going to university and the place where I moved to is way more humid than where I used to live. Humidity + heat + large campus is not a good look. I look forward to fall every year, but the typical fall weather only lasts a week here in Texas. We have six months of summer, one week of fall, six months of winter, and one week of spring. Basically, Texas hates nice temperatures. Anyhow, I love the thought of autumn, and I’m ready to fall straight into this tag! (bad, dry pun intended)

I have a problem. I don’t have enough time to really sit through and read a book. I might have time once a week or two weeks to read, and that means I forget a lot that has happened in the story. To combat this, I decided to summarize every chapter of the book I’m reading, and share it with you guys too! This way, if I do forget what I’ve read, I can look back on my notes. Also, it ensures that I’m actually paying attention to what I’m reading. If the book is in a series and the next book hasn’t come out yet, I can look back on these posts to refresh my memory on what happened so I don’t have to reread the whole series again. And you guys can look back on these posts to refresh your memory too! Everyone wins.
Anyway, I thought I’d try this new idea with a shorter book, a.k.a. a graphic novel to see if it’s a sustainable idea. I don’t tend to buy graphic novels since they’re so expensive, but I decided to splurge and buy Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell since she was visiting where I live and I already own most of her YA books.
Before we jump into this, just keep in mind that this idea is a work in progress so the next few posts in this series will look rough before they get better!
Also, SPOILER WARNING, obviously.
Also also, this extended summary thing is NOT my review. That will be a separate post.
