We’re finally out of the summer months and one step closer to fall, which is my absolute favorite time of year. Who doesn’t love the fact that sweater weather is almost here? With another month down and a new season right around corner, here are a few things I’m looking forward to in the month of September.
The Pumpkin Spice Latte is Back!
As of September 1st, Starbucks unofficially kicked off the fall season by bringing back one of their most popular drinks, drumroll please….the Pumpkin Spice Latte!!!

A Good Book to Curl Up With!
There are so many good books out right now. Yes, we all have crazy lives but sometimes the best way to unwind is through the pages of a good book.
This thriller is a mix of history and fiction that will take you back to early America, the infamous 1893 World Fair, and introduce you to the lives of two distinct men. One, the architect behind Chicago’s World Fair. The other, one of America’s first serial killers who used this fair to lure his victims to their untimely death.

The Girls: A Novel by Emma Cline
Get taken back in time to the late 1960s of Northern California. It’s the beginning of a lonely summer for Evie Boyd, a teenager lost in her own thoughts until she notices a group of girls in the park. Immediately, she’s drawn to these care-free beauties who march to the beat of their own drum. With their fearless and charming leader by their side, their notorious cult will soon be known by everyone. Longing to be accepted, Evie is slowly spiraling down a dark tunnel filled with anger, violence, and madness of which she might never return.
The Girl On The Train: A Novel by Paula Hawkins
Day in and day out Rachel follows the same routine, hopping on the train every morning and night. She knows every stop and has practically memorized every house on her London commute; one in particular she knows by heart. From its missing tiles on the roof, to the color of the curtains in the bedroom upstairs, and the peeling paint on the bathroom window frame. This is the house she looks forward to seeing. Its occupants are the perfect couple, at least in Rachel’s eyes, who she’s named Jason and Jess. They remind her of the life she once had, until she sees the unexpected. Before she knows it, she’s put herself right in the middle of a missing person investigation, with no recollection of what may or may not have happened, or who she is anymore.
Huge fan of this book and cannot wait for the movie to finally come out next month!
American Horror Story Season 6 Premiere!
Finally a horror series created for fans like me. When the first season of American Horror Story premiered, I was hooked. What I love most about AHS is that every season tells a different story; from a coven full of witches, to a haunted hotel, even an asylum full of loonies, and so on. No season is ever the same, which is exactly why I’m looking forward to watching the premiere of season 6 on September 14th. Judging from the new commercials out right now, my guess is that this season’s theme is monsters. We shall see.
If September isn’t your favorite time of year, or there isn’t much you’re looking forward to this month, hopefully a few of these favorites will spark your interest and get you excited for fall.
