Is the Summer Over Yet?

I am sooooo looking forward to the Fall, especially because of the books, movies and TV shows coming out then. Here's a quick sampling of what I'm looking forward to...

*****

Not only will Joshilyn Jackson's new novel, Someone Else's Love Story, be out in November 2013, BUT she also wrote an e-novella, My Own Miraculous (October 2013) which stars one of the characters from the new novel. It's like the appetizer before the meal, and I am pulling my chair right up to the table! (And, if I wasn't already a huge fan as a writer and a reader, these two posts about how she struggled to write the synopsis for the e-novella - "A Dirty Look Behind the Scenes" and "Why I Call You Best. Why You Are Beloved" - would've made me one for sure.)

*****

I have a feeling Stephen King's Dr. Sleep (September 2013) will keep me awake long into the night....




*****

If you're in the mood for a movie this Fall, check out the trailer for Catching Fire...


*****

But, to be totally honest, I am most looking forward to Season 4 of my favorite TV show, The Walking Dead. Argh, October is so far away!

Are you looking forward to the Fall? Why? Excited about any - or all! - of these books, movies or TV shows?

    1. Oh, Dana, I'm so glad! My favorite of hers is BACKSEAT SAINTS, but I enjoyed them all. Her blog is a lot of fun, too

  3. Walking Dead! Yesss!! Though I'm not ready for summer to be over. The whole thought of snow will help me be patient until the Dead returns.

    My daughter and her hubby are starting with season one and watching a few each week to help keep the withdrawals.

    I hadn't heard of Joshilyn Jackson before. I'll have to check out her books.

    1. I'll get myself to the theater at some point - I'm not brave enough to face the crowds and go the very first day. :)

  8. This last week has felt too much like fall, and I'm not quite ready yet. Ready for the kids to go to school, just not the cold weather.

    But fall is one of my favorites Luckily we live in a place with all four distinct seasons. I love that.
