So today, I thought I'd post a photo of my October library books with a steaming mug of matcha, my tea of choice on a fall day. I've mentioned matcha, a fine powder green tea, here before for its antioxidant health benefits. Matcha is simple to brew because it doesn't even need to steep. Just stir in hot (or cold) water, add a splash of vegan milk, and you are ready to dive into the books.
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
Battleborn by Claire Vaye Watkins
Half Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
Shadows on the Rock by Willa Cather
Also on my fall reading list, but not photographed here, are my own worn paperback of The Comedians by Graham Greene and a brand spanking new copy of Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon, which I just won from a Goodreads giveaway.
