Good day, dear readers! Summer is slowly fading, and we are staring the back to school deadline straight in the face. As we prepare (or in some cases, have already started), its hard to not want to hold onto the last little bit of what we can. But, with the fading of summer comes the onset of fall! It is such a beautiful time of year, and there is nothing that I enjoy more than sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee, and a good book!
We are reading through “The Queen’s Choice,” this month, and what a choice! Oh my! I hope that each of you are enjoying the read! I look forward to our discussion coming up! We have had some great times this summer with the summer reading program, as well as discovering new reads as well! There are so many great books to choose from, it can be hard to find the PERFECT book to share here!
As we look sprint toward September, I am excited to announce the new book that we are going to be reading! We are going to dive into “The Witch of Willow Hall,” by Hester Fox. It is a fabulous read, and one that I think everyone is going to enjoy! It is perfect for this time of year! Grab your coffee, and get ready for a superb book!

But a subtle menace creeps into the atmosphere, remnants of a dark history that call to Lydia, and to the youngest, Emeline.
All three daughters will be irrevocably changed by what follows, but none more than Lydia, who must draw on a power she never knew she possessed if she wants to protect those she loves. For Willow Hall’s secrets will rise, in the end…
