Weekly Update at Introverted Reader

Welcome to my weekly update for October 24, 2016! Autumn has finally arrived here in the mountains of North Carolina! Our temperatures hovered around 80 degrees until Friday, when they dropped into the fifties. We’ve warmed up a bit over the weekend but the cooler temperatures have finally brought on some spectacular fall color.

My husband and I visited Atlanta last weekend for a late anniversary getaway. We had a good time walking around Piedmont Park, checking out the Chihuly Nights exhibit at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and walking around Oakland Cemetery, where Margaret Mitchell is buried. We even saw a wedding at the cemetery! We spoke to the lady working the gift shop and she said they host about 14 weddings a year. It was a beautiful, peaceful space, but that’s not my idea of a wedding venue!


Nothing. I promise I am trying to get back into my routine.


It by Stephen King

Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt, read by Cassandra Campbell and Emily Woo Zeller

Currently Reading:

A House without Windows by Nadia Hashimi

The Charmed Children of Rookskill Castle by Janet Fox, read by Fiona Hardingham

The Rebels of Ireland by Edward Rutherfurd

Up Next:

Confession: I consider myself to be a Harry Potter fan but I’ve never read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. With the movie coming out next month, I’ll be picking up the book soon.

  1. Our fall colors are mostly over now. All we have are bare trees. I'm hoping for at least one more warm up before winter sets in though. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. I love Atlanta. I lived there for a couple years. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

  3. Ah, It is a perfect read for the season! Enjoy…and thanks for sharing your tempting list.

    The visit to Atlanta sounds like fun.


  4. I'm hoping to read A House Without Windows soon. I loved her other books, especially The Pearl That Broke Its Shell.

    Happy belated anniversary! Sounds like a fun trip. I don't think I'd want to get married in a cemetery even if the grounds were beautiful!

    I hope you have a great week.

  5. Wow, you are brave taking on It. I went through a spell of loving his books as a teen. Tommyknockers was one of my favourites.
    Edward Rutherfurd is a fantastic author, his novels are so grand and seeped in history. I loved his book on Russia. Enjoy!

  6. Hmmm…I've read a few Stephen King novels, but never IT…I'm not scared of clowns, but it just sounds a bit too scary for me…!!

  7. Oh that is a huge drop in temperature, surely one you'd feel a lot. Hope you enjoy your Harry Potter spin off when you get to it.

  8. I was curious about The Charmed Children when that came out a few months ago. Hope it's a good read. We're starting to get good color here and the temps have been getting into the 50's here as well. Fall has definitely arrived.
