Autumn Anticipation

Aaah.. it's almost that time of year again- where the leaves turn a crisp scarlet red and a fresh, brisk wind frolics through the air. Autumn. We love the feeling of our toes snuggled up into some cozy boots and our necks wrapped in knit infinity scarves. We also love the feeling of our fingers curled around a good book, some upbeat music jamming through our ear buds, and the suspense when watching a highly anticipated movie at the theater . This post is solely dedicated to getting you excited for fall and everything it has to offer!

New Reads This Fall:

Coming to your local bookstore on November 4th- The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson! Oh man, this series certainly does have a way of gripping your attention just by the book covers alone, but the synopsis sounds quite intriguing as well. This book seems to be based on the classic story of The Princess and the Frog and is full of romance, suspense, and mystery. We can't wait to get our hands on a copy of this gem. If you enjoy fairy tales with a hint of mystery, be sure to check out the rest of the books in Dickerson's fairy tale series. You can also read the full deets about this book on Good Reads.  

Next up is this mystery/suspense novel by Irene Hannon. It is the third book in her Private Justice series, and let me tell you, we are very excited about this one. The first two books were absolutely amazing, though the second one would definitely have to be our favorite. The fascinating thing about this novel is it is about a mother who is still grieving the loss of her son and husband who died in a boating accident four years ago, who thinks she sees her long lost son one day at the mall. That means someone is trying to keep him hidden. This story plot sounds so exciting, full of tension and mystery. October 7th is the date this long awaited novel is suppose to release! Check out a full summary on Good Reads.
New Musique this Fall:

♫I'm standing still without you in the emptiest of fields, I wish that I could say what's on my mind...♫ Maybe you have heard the catchy beat of Alex & Sierra's scarecrow, or maybe you have seen this duo rocking it on the last season of The X Factor. Either way, we are pumped for this album to release in just a couple of weeks on October 7th! These two's voices blend and mesh so well together, and our favorite songs are the slower ones with the acoustics and piano; we aren't as fond of the upbeat ones with funky electronic beats. Check out their first couple of singles including Bumper Cars, Here we go, Little Do you Know, and Just Kids. Just a warning, there may be some sketchy songs, including one that is called, "cheating" and may talk about a few weird things. Other than that, we can't wait till this couple introduces the rest of the songs so we can jam out and squeal with excitement when their voices blend together just right.

So I guess you could say we have a thing for singing competition artists. Besides the interesting cover, Angie Miller's new EP, releasing November 12th, has us curious and eager to listen to her original, self-written tunes. Angie's been keeping this EP pretty under wraps, so we don't know exactly what these songs are going to sound like, but if they are anything like what she sang on American idol, we will be content!
New Movies this Fall....
November 21.... Do we have to say any more? Hunger Games Fanatics across the globe are waiting for this day for Mockingjay Part 1 to release in theaters. If you haven't seen the trailers, be sure to check out the lil snippets to get excited for this long awaited film!
Lastly, what's a blog post without a few DIY fall recipes? Confession: We haven't exactly tried these recipes yet, but they do look/sound absolutely scrumptious!

Well that's all for now folks! I hope this post got you anticipated for autumn and excited for all the new literature, music, and movies!
With love,
Mickey & Jen
