Stephen King Collection

Hello readers!

Today I introduce you to my Stephen King collection.  Recently I set up my new shelf and I've had fun organizing all my scary reads,
and some of my Funko Pop collection.

(We still need to move the wall decor from behind the shelf)
Back in the Spring I decided that I wanted to start collecting the hard cover versions of the Stephen King novels.  And since I've made that decision I have found very little of his works second hand.  So, most of my collection is paperback, and bought new.  Sharing this shelf, for the time being, is the Lars Kepler - Hypnotist series, which I won't get into here.
Out of my collection, this is what I've read: - Gerald's Game - Pet Sematary - 'Salem's Lot - Mr. Mercedes - The Stand (missing from shelf...where is this one?!?)
Not read: - Dolores Claiborne  - Bag Of Bones - IT - Outsider - End of Watch - Finders Keepers - Cell - Just After Sunset - Storm of the Centry
Read, but do not own: - Different Seasons - Revival

September Obsessions

The month of September flew past so quickly.  It's like I blinked and it went from Summer to Fall - all of a sudden the temperatures dropped and the sun started going down earlier in the evening. So, reflecting back, here are some of the things that I've been obsessed with this month.

Latte's (pumpkin spice and chai)Wool BlanketsSweatersNetflix How to get away with MurderAfflictedBones (season 9 - which was removed on Sept 16, before I was done watching the season)

These 4 things bring me from Summer to Fall in that they involve being warm and comfortable. I would also have added books into this post, but that isn't a seasonal or a month related obsession - it's all year :)

What have you been gravitating towards more now that the Summer days are behind us? Do you have a favorite seasonal …

Comfort Zone:

"21 Inspiring Quotes About Moving Outside Your Comfort Zone" - This is a great site for inspiration (and where this picture above is from). I don't enjoy frequently changing plans, and when plans change last minute I'm sometimes thrown into a spiral because other day-plans have been made around said plans and the change throws everything out of whack. I'm a planner to a fault. But, sometimes I need to step out of my comfortable schedule and familiar tasks and do something new.  It's a gamble - but it does usua…
