Autumn has well and truly arrived. I love this time of year. Everything about it screams all things warm and fuzzy. Having said that, September has been a bit of a slow month for me in terms of reading. Life has been chaotic and because of that, I’ve not really been in the mood to read a heavy fantasy book. My remedy for this, sports contemporary novels. Everyone should know by now that I love sports contemporary novels. They are the perfect books to turn to if you’re in the mood for a fun and light read that has plenty of heart. The Off-Campus series is an obvious choice for such occasions and I’m so happy to say that I have officially finished the series, despite the fact that I’m desperate for more haha.

I didn’t write as many discussion posts as I wanted to but this one was definitely the most fun to write. You all know how addicted I am to sports contemporary novels so I’ve taken the liberty of providing a list of reasons to read sports contemporary novels.

Be more productive. This seems to be my mantra of the year. The first half of October is promising to be a bit less strenuous so I plan to be a lot more productive on the blog and in life in general. I finished September on a sports contemporary kick and that promises to carry on into October.
Speaking of sports, Ice hockey season is back! I never thought I’d be the person that gets excited about sports, but Ice Hockey is a game that grabs you. I’ve also watched a bit of American Football, and now that I understand the basic rules I enjoy it more. I still think American Football is like Rugby on pause, but it’s enjoyable.
