Happy September! I’ve been away on a blogging summer vacation, but I’m excited to be back with a whole new list of things to look forward to this month.
All eight Harry Potter Movies are streaming on HBO Max this month, and I really want to watch the early ones and envelope myself in some back to school nostalgia.
There are several exciting horror books coming out this month to read and get in the spooky season spirit, and a couple movies that will help as well.
Lastly, I’m anticipating the start of fall. It has been blazing hot in the Carolina’s all summer, and I am pining for cooler temperatures, crunchy leaves, and rain.
If you subscribe to HBO Max, sink into some back to school nostalgia with all eight Harry Potter movies.
