The Seasonal Booklist

Scarlet Reader

Giphy

Hello, fellow book hoarders,

I don’t know about you, but where I am, we moved into autumn pretty fast and then into winter even faster. It’s snowed already. And yes, I’m one of those people that doesn’t enjoy snow or the cold. Just as much as there are people who are done with summer as soon as it begins there are also people out there who are done with winter before it even begins, even if the population of that group is just me. LOL.

The fast changes in the seasons here made me think of this booklist. Below are four books, each representing a season, from my opinion of course, and a bonus to represent change. Now, I do consider this a list, not a tag because I have a Thanksgiving feast tag planned this month, but if you want to use this as a tag go for it.
