The grey morning
Picture this: you get up sometime just after sunrise, and the day is grey and cloudy outside. No sunshine is even trying to get through the cloud bank. You’ve got a few hours before you really need to get ready and start your day, so you brew your warming beverage of choice and curl up on a comfy surface with a book. What book should you be reading?
The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh! Atmospheric, romantic, and with a dark edge, this book will definitely help you wake up.
The cold morning
Similar to a grey morning, a cold morning is one where you get up and need a warm mug in your hand and a blanket around your shoulders ASAP. If you’re really lucky, you have a warm cuddle buddy as well. On a morning like this, you want to dive headfirst into a book that will help you keep nice and cozy. So I recommend Pride and Prejudice. A classic for a reason, this book will help you pass the cold morning by and once you’re toasty again you’ll be ready for the day to continue!
The unseasonably warm morning
Some of us live in a climate that just doesn’t accommodate spooky season, unfortunately. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the ambiance! If the sun is shining and the temperature outside is meant for shorts and t-shirts, then don your sunglasses and sit outside with a cool glass and a copy of Practical Magic. The book is set largely during the summer, making it fit the tone of the spooky season and the weather of a warm climate.
The stormy morning
If you live in an area with lots of thunderstorms, October may be peak thunderstorm season. In that case, I recommend a good old staying in bed to read kind of morning and I recommend something spooky like a collection of Edgar Allen Poe’s works–particularly The Fall of the House of Usher or The Black Cat!
