Last Sunday at the zoo it was 104° and by Tuesday the temps had dropped into the low 40s. We had rain and thunderstorms all week. The highs were in the low 50s and we ended up having to turn on the heat or gas fireplace to stave off the chill. It’s September! Yikes. Mr. Caffeinated is back in the office 3 days a week and our county extended the mask mandate until mid-October. Usually this time of year we venture to Valla’s Pumpkin Patch with the Royals, thanks to Mr. C’s work, but they canceled it. It was sad seeing memories of the past five years on our timelines.
Lots of events on the blog. Fraterfest Read-a-thon begins October 15th. I was hoping for a few zombie challenge hosts. Please email me if you are interested and sign up for the thon! The Black Friday Book Bonanza Hop is back and I hope you can join us. Look for the Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon sign up later this month. Stay Caffeinated.

I live in the tropics, hot and humid summers and they are on their way. I feel for you. Stay well and caffeinated.
104 degrees? I couldn’t have stood it. You would have found me in the air conditioned gift shop. Too bad about the cancelled outing at the pumpkin farm. We used to do that a lot. And brrr for temps in the low 50’s. Although since I hate summer I could handle it.
Ooh I really want to read The Project and One by One – hope you love them. Just signed up for Fraterfest. If you need more challenge/giveaway hosts, let me know, and I’m sure I can come up with something. 🙂
It’s been crazy weather around the country. I don’t know what’s going on. I just want normal Fall weather for awhile.
a bit stormy here in the forida panhandle but we are lucky the worst of the storm is going around us. these are definitely challenging times and we have to take those good moments when we can find them
Shelleyrae @ Book’d Out
The weather is warming up here, I’m worried we are going to be in for another hot fiery summer.
I’m sorry you’ll miss your pumpkin holiday tradition, hopefully you’ll find other ways to celebrate
Wishing you a great reading week
Tyler H. Jolley
Oh yeah, the chill is defiantly in the air. Only a few more months of mountain biking before the time change makes it too dark to ride and the snow starts. Bummer about the pumpkin patch. Hope you have a good week, Kimba!
oooft big temp change. Here it has mostly been wet and cold enough for the heating to be put on. Almost time to get the thicker quilts out. xxx
strange weather indeed.. we had those eerie orange skies here in the bay area!
and i really want to read anxious people
It sounds like things are moving forward a bit for you. Our court system is moving to phase 2 so that is encouraging.
I’m glad your events are continuing. Now if I can only schedule to get in on them.
Nice new arrivals. Happy Reading!
It’s been a billion degrees here until recently and I’ve been loving the less the oven level temperatures! I’m not sure what we’re going to do fall-wise and with Halloween but hopefully we will all come up with something fun. Enjoy your new books and have a great week.
Nise' (Under the Boardwalk)
We had to turn on the heat this week as well. Hoping warmer weather is coming, not ready for fall.
Ooo, One by One is one I want to read on a chilly day soon.
I hear ya, the temps have been all over the place here too. I also know what you mean about things not being open or canceled. The hubby and I usually go to the Cider Mill on the first day of school and get fresh cider and donuts for the kids when they get home, but we couldn’t this year due to COVID.
Wow that’s a big temp change. It’s still warm here but it does get cooler in the mornings and evenings which is nice.
I will miss our apple picking this year as well. 🙁
Enjoy your books, they all look good!
Anne - Books of My Heart
Talk about a weather turn around! We have just dropped from 90s to 80s, this week will be mostly 70s which is perfect for me. I got One by One and Murder on Cold St but on audio and I also got All the Colors of the Night. Exciting!
Aj @ Read All The Things!
The same thing happened with the weather here! It was snowing on Tuesday. Now it’s 85, and all the snow is melted. Wild. I hope you have a good week!
And our weather is mad too as we have a mini heat wave in Belgium Kimberly! We are known to have a climate similar to the UK so wet and cold!!!!
Sorry for the pumpkin celebration. So many fun events got cancelled this year.
Have a good week!
It’s been right around 100 all week. I am hoping for cooler temps soon. I think Halloween is going to be cancelled for the most part here.
S. J. Pajonas
Wow. It went from summer to fall really quickly in your neck of the woods! I was just thinking about going apple picking, and then immediately ruled against it. Sigh. I’ll miss all those apples.
Isn’t the weather funky? It’s that time of the year when you could be wearing shorts or sweats all in the same day. 🙂 Too bad about the pumpkin patch activity getting cancelled, but better safe than sorry, I guess.
Lovely haul of books this week.
Have a good week, Kimberly!
Great post. We are excpecting another Hurrican here in Louisiana . Sally 2020
Oh my word! WHAT a crazy swing in temperatures – that can’t be good for the flora and fauna, never mind what it does to the human constitution… I hope you have a comfortable week, where it’s not too hot and not too cold!
That weather is insane! 104 for the zoo had to have been tough on the Royals. Oh, a visit to the pumpkin patch sounds delightful. Sorry to hear it was canceled.
I got a copy of Anxious People as well, and I’ll probably pick up Jayne Anne Krentz too. I’ll probably sign up for Black Friday. Have a great week, Kimberly!
It’s staying in the 90s here and very humid. We won’t start getting cooler weather for a while yet. They extended our mask mandate until October and I have a feeling they will extend it again. Stay safe and well, Kimberly.
Tammy @ Books, Bones & Buffy
That is CRAZY weather! We had a high of 115 a couple of weeks ago here in California and it was awful. Have a good week!
Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer
For the past week, the weather has been rainy and in the 60s. The temperature is supposed to go back up into the 80s this week.
What?! We are already close to the HoHoHo again? Wow, how time flies. We have hot weather and sun, sun and sun again *smile* I saw the first pumpkins on Saturday at the supermarket. Was a great view. Happy reading and stay safe!
A Voracious Reader
104º?!?! Holy shit! That’s insane! I don’t like the heat, so I’m looking forward to the cooler temps. I could live with 70s/50s (or thereabouts) year round and be perfectly happy. lol Sorry to hear about the Pumpkin Patch cancellation. I always enjoy seeing your photos. 🙁
Laura @ Library of Clean Reads
We’re told the masks will be around for a couple of years…I love the new books you got this week! I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on The Deadly Hours. Take care.
Genesis @ Whispering Chapters
104 degrees?! I’d die. And for us, the mask is obligatory until further notice, and are pretty much telling us that this will be our new normal until there’s a control with the COVID or vaccines.
What a big change in temperature over only a few days. We have had some cooler weather these past few weeks, but now get 3 really warm days suddenly again next week. The weather sure seems weird everywhere. I hope you had a fun time at the zoo. And have a great week!
It got a little chilly here but not like that! I am so worried with how the weather has been so weird that we will have an early winter and I can’t deal with that! 🙁 Bummer about the pumpkin thing being cancelled. 🙁
Have a great week and happy reading!
You know me, all jelly about your weather! lol
I just want to open the window!!! Is that too much to ask! lol
Looking forward to your readathons, I will share them in the COYER group this week! 🙂
Have a great week, Kim! Happy Reading! xx
Jessica @ a GREAT read
Dang! Those are some nice temperatures! We’re still pushing 80 around here, which is slightly cooler than usual, but still too warm for me. Lol!
Nice new reads too! Those are new to me ones, but I hope you enjoy them all!
Here’s my StS
Have a GREAT day!

Jan @ Notes from a Readerholic
I don’t think I could have done the zoo trip with the temp at 104! We had a big drop in the temperatures, here in Iowa, too. And lots of rain.
You got some books I’m hoping to read when they’re published. I hope you enjoy them and have a good week!
That’s quite a temperature range there! Just really noticed how it’s getting dark here earlier and light in the mornings later… I know it’s Fall, I’m just not ready for it yet!
it’s okay to have to miss one year when you get to do it next year when things cool down. Though you could get creative i guess?
My husband was home in Wyoming this week where it went from being in the 90s to snowing 6 inches overnight. Crazy. I’m excited for The Project. Happy reading!
That is a crazy drop in temperature, the world has gone bonkers! I hope you enjoyed the zoo.
I know what you mean about the memories, we have stricter restrictions coming in place at midnight, normal times seem aeons ago!
Have a good week.
So many fun readathons and challenges this time of year!
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
I need to look at your events and join up. We’ve had weird weather too, going from 115 to 90 for the high in three days. I can’t complain about cooler temps though. Fun new reads! I got The Haunting of Beatrix Greene tooand am hoping I’ll love it. I hope this week goes well for you!
I am sorry to hear the temperatures have plummeted so dramatically ? and that the pumpkin festival has been cancelled ?I hope you will be able to find other ways to enjoy autumn/fall with your family. Take care, keep warm and happy reading! ?
Wow, that’s some change in temperature. I can’t believe it’s time to think about pumpkins already. I’m sorry your event was canceled. I hope you have a great week!
Jen at Introverted Reader
I’m sorry your yearly pumpkin festivities had to be cancelled. What a temperature drop! I’ll have to check out your holiday events. Enjoy your week!
I want to read One by One and All the Colors of Night.
Enjoy your time with the kids, even though it is a new normal for all of us. I hope you love all of your books.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
I’m sorry about the pumpkin patch, but not surprised. The weather extremes out west have been WOW! Robin and my parents woke up to snow on Tuesday morning — in New Mexico. (They are at high elevation, over 7,000 feet.)
You got the new Jayne Ann Krentz! I am still waiting with my fingers crossed.
Oh, and thanks for the shout-out! 🙂 Have a great week, and stay safe!
Maureen @ Maureen’s Books
OMG.. I can’t wait for the HoHoHo Readathon.. I always love that so much!
Crazy that’s it’s already September 13 right?
Stay safe and happy reading.
I can’t believe it is pumpkin time already. But I definitely glad that the temperature is falling here in Dubai. I am sad that your plans foiled. I hope you are staying safe!
Wow that’s quite a temp drop. We’ve had chillier weather here too. It’s weird so early in September! And also a shame about the things we can’t do now. Yay 2020…
Happy to see stuff like the hohoHo and whatnot coming up. At least some familiar bloggy things are still around… 🙂
Have a great week!
