You may be aware of a phenomenon known as “seasonal creep.” While non-life threatening, seasonal creep is a serious, autumn-amourist disorder that affects 100% of coffee shops and retail outlets. From as early as late August, these establishments are awash in unrelentingly autumnal themes: pumpkin infuses all food and beverages, and mannequins break out into full-body knits. What you may not know is that seasonal creep has now come for your books.
I regret to inform you that the following titles show evidence of being seasonally crept:
