Ah, fall. The crispness is back in the air, so pumpkin spice has returned to my lattes. And many others’, I’m sure. 

There’s something so familiar about it. After the rough few years we've all been through, having a familiar, cosy drink to treat yourself to can be a comfort.

It's OK to slow down and embrace that feeling. Just like it’s always, ALWAYS okay to sink into a good find from the library. 

Here are some pumpkin and autumn flavoured picks from yours truly. Enjoy!
