#BlinkBlog: Pumpkin Spice Lattes + Fall Reading Plans

We have another fun #BlinkBlog for you this week! Curious if your favorite Blink author enjoys a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Or what their fall reading plans consist of? Keep reading below…

Pumpkin Spice Latte fan? Or no?

Alison Gervais: No, thank you!

Annie Sullivan: Sadly, I’m not a fan. I might be the only writer in the world who doesn’t like coffee. But I’d happily try some pumpkin spice tea!

Christina June: I am, though I usually prefer it as a candle scent.  Fall candles are my jam, especially while writing.

Heather Hepler: No. I pretty much only like pumpkin spice in pumpkin pie.

Laurie Boyle Crompton: I like to try different drinks from time to time, but really prefer regular black coffee from Starbucks or Trader Joe’s. Simple straightforward caffeine is what coffee is all about for me.

Maureen McQuerry: I prefer my pumpkin in the pie! And I do like pumpkin pie especially when made with coconut milk.

McCall Hoyle: Fan! But I must admit, I loved pumpkin everything long before it was cool. A slice of my Aunt Evelyn’s old-fashioned pumpkin pie with a dollop of Cool Whip is pretty close to heaven if you ask me.

Stephanie Morrill: Not really. I’ll drink it, but I prefer just plain coffee.

Anything you plan to read this fall?

Alison Gervais: I’ve got McCall Hoyle’s Meet the Sky waiting to be finished, along with Stephanie Garber’s Legendary. I’m also wanting to finish up Ransom Rigg’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children as well.

Annie Sullivan: I still have too many things on my TBR pile, but I’ve been hearing good things about To Kill A Kingdom—so I hope to check that one out.

Christina June: I’m excited for THE PROPOSAL by Jasmine Guillory, which is a companion to the much-lauded THE WEDDING DATE, that I absolutely loved.  I’m also looking forward to the new Jessica Spotswood-edited anthology, TOIL & TROUBLE and Lisa Maxwell’s latest, THE DEVIL’S THIEF. Lisa and Jessica are both friends and I’m thrilled to be able to support them.

Heather Hepler: Yes, Jeff Giles has a new book I’m looking forward too. And I’m caught up in Robin Hobb’s Farseer world. Thankfully she’s crazy prolific, so there’s lots to read.

Laurie Boyle Crompton: I’m looking forward to curling up with Reese Witherspoon’s Whiskey in a Teacup. She is such a strong and inspiring woman who I will forever remember as Elle Woods teaching us all the bend and snap.

Maureen McQuerry: Barbara Kingsolver’s new book Unsheltered, The Light Between Worlds, Olivia Twist, reread The Golem and the Jinni, The Paris Wife.

McCall Hoyle: I’m on a huge animal kick. I just re-read A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey, both by W. Bruce Cameron. I’m currently re-reading The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. And I absolutely cannot wait for Carlie Sorosiak’s upcoming young adult book, I, Cosmo told from a dog’s point of view.

Stephanie Morrill: Fawkes, by Nadine Brandes, Murder at the Flamingo by Rachel McMillan, and Everybody Always by Bob Goff.

Stay tuned for next week’s #BlinkBlog update!
