Falling for Autumn
Falling for Autumn | Heather Topham Wood
29 posts | 1 to read
Autumn Dorey had no problem leaving her hometown of Newpine and the friends there who'd betrayed her. Everyone thought they knew what happened the spring night Autumn's world fell apart. Vicious rumors about the incident circulated, and she had to be homeschooled the last year of high school to escape her tormentors. All she wants now is to get away from it all and start over at Cook University. She leaves everything but the memory behindsomething she swore she'd never forgetand sets off to rebuild what was broken.Blake Preston is precisely the type of guy Autumn wants to avoid. He's gorgeous, arrogant and the college's beloved football star. As much as she believes he's someone she should steer clear of, avoiding him proves to be impossible. He shows up everywhere around campus, offering her a no-strings attached friendship. Autumn can't deny Blake stirs up emotions she thought fled years ago. But things he's been hiding begin to emerge and collide with her past, leaving her heart ravaged in their wake.

Avanders @LibrarianRyan hiya lady - just wanted to send you a reminder in case you were still planning on signing up for #fffs - no pressure, just didn‘t want you to miss the deadline if you did want to do it 😘 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Avanders Sorry. I wasn't home and it compleatly blew my mind. Us not being able to open anything google on work systems (or when using work wifi) just complicates so many things. Good luck with the swap and I am sorry I missed it. 10mo
Avanders @MittenGirlPeach thanks! 😘🎃 10mo
Avanders @LibrarianRyan no worries - I completely understand. And agree — so frustrating! If you have time in the next couple hours and are interested, I‘m keeping it open until noon mountain time for someone else too - if you sign up before then I can include you. 😘 10mo
LibrarianRyan @Avanders na. Go ahead. Plus, knowing me, i will sign up for all the upcoming halloween/horror ones. My mom was even trying to get me to host one so the boys can participate this weekend. 10mo
Avanders @LibrarianRyan oh yes totally - all the Halloween horror ones!! 👹😈🎃 And I think it‘s great when you include the littles 😘 10mo

Matches for #FallingForFallSwap #FFFS have been sent! Check your emails and, failing that, your spam. If you haven‘t received an email match, email me! I track all of this 🙂🙃

Also, for whoever got me.. please know that, the way I match these, I really have no recollection of who you are - no need to spoil the surprise! If you have questions, I‘m going to impose on @Chrissyreadit — touch base with her & she can follow up with me if necessary 😘

Chrissyreadit Sure!! I love keeping a surprise in place 😘😘 2y

JamieArc Does this swap replace the Cozy Swap you did last year, @Avanders ? 2y
Avanders @JamieArc yeah… I seem to go back and forth between falling for fall and cozy, but they both are essentially the same — honoring fall and hygge 🤗 2y
JamieArc @Avanders I‘m so sad I missed signing up then! I really loved the cozy swap! 2y
Avanders @JamieArc aww me too 🥺 A couple people missed the sign up for this one… I‘ll try to be better about tagging people next year! 2y

hermyknee I meant to tag you yesterday, I shipped my boxes via priority (so much for saving some money - life got in the way!) My match should receive both boxes on Saturday! 5y

Avanders @scripturient no news yet.. I'll follow up tonight! 5y
vkois88 Sorry I sent mine so late 🙈🙈🙈 With the hurricane watch, timing was dicey. I don't think I left the house at all on Friday (when it was supposed to come up our way and, thankfully, didn't). Then I worked all weekend. So hopefully my match loves everything... I grabbed 2 day, so it'll be there on Wednesday 🤗🤗🤗 Now to save up so I can send the package I have for you 😂 5y
Avanders @vkois88 that is completely understandable! Honestly, I don't care when it's actually sent, s'long as it gets there in time ? I just post the updates bc I think sometimes people forget "it's here!" (As in, the time to be sending). Glad you didn't have to deal w the hurricane! Scary stuff. ? Aww you don't have to send me anything! But now I'm excited for it... ?? (edited) 5y
vkois88 Lol I keep finding stuff I want to send you... but darn funds preventing it and all 😂😂 putting packages together is probably one of my favorite pastimes 5y
Avanders @vkois88 I totally know the feeling!! 😆😢😜 I loooove it too. I was just thinking about that too! (How much fun it is because I-don't-know-why.)🤗🤗🤗 5y

#FFFS #FallingForFallSwap swappers -- we're nearing the final days here! Only 10 days to open date!! (Which is Sept. 21 in case you forgot 😉.) International pkgs should be shipped by now, and domestic ones should be near that point too! (Keep in mind shipping times.)
Great news: 74% of you have already shipped your packages and 25% have already received them! Way to go! 🎉🎉

JoScho 🧡🧡🧡 5y
Valink I just realized that I‘ll be on a business trip on 9/21... I‘m tempted to throw the package in my suitcase and open it before the conference that day because I‘m impatient and have very little impulse control! 😂😂 5y

erzascarletbookgasm I‘m getting concerned, I don‘t know if my match received hers yet. It has been three weeks. She should be receiving two envelopes from me and another direct from an online store. She hasn‘t posted anything yet. Hopefully she‘s just busy.🤞 5y
Avanders @Pandareads37 yay!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 @erzascarletbookgasm I have her marked as having received them... I'll touch bases and see what's up, but I think you can stop worrying about her having received it. ☺️ 5y

scripturient Hey @Avanders, I‘m still waiting for my package. Do you know when my match sent it out or could you possibly ask them to check tracking, please? It‘s still a few days so I‘m not worried yet but it would be great to have an estimate on when to expect it. 😊 Thank you! 😘 5y
Avanders @scripturient I'm looking into it! I'll let you know when I know more ☺️😘 5y

#FFFS #FallingForFallSwap
It's September! Remember: open date is 9/21 -- less than 3 weeks away!

Please finalize and ship your packages to ensure that your secret recipient has a package to open on opening day! International swappers should be sending *soon*, if they're not already sent.

And remember to post or email me when you've sent your package. 🤗

Email w questions! Leathy18 at gmail.

hermyknee I‘m just waiting on one more item to arrive and then it‘s off to the post office I go! ☺️ Thank you for the reminder! 5y
Sarah83 @CaroPi hasn't the parcel arrived still? 5y
CaroPi @Sarah83 nothing yet ☹️ 5y

Sarah83 @CaroPi did you ever get something from Germany? 5y
CaroPi @Sarah83 yes. Surprisingly enough it always comes late. Packages from US and UK arrive first. I still don't know why. 5y
Avanders @CaroPi @Sarah83 👆🏽👆🏽 weird!! They're so geographically close, relatively speaking... maybe something in customs? I'm sure it'll get there in plenty of time 🤗🤗 @hermyknee 🧡🍁🧡🍁🧡 5y
tracey38 I meant to send mine last week, but with my mom I didn't. Will post this week when I get it sent out! Loving this swap, can't wait to see what everyone gets. 🍁🍂🧡💛 5y
Avanders @tracey38 yay!! And me too!!! 💛🧡🎃🍁🍂 5y
erzascarletbookgasm Thanks for being on top of things! You‘re a great swap host! 🧡💛 5y
Avanders @erzascarletbookgasm aww thanks! 💖🤗 5y
Valink I‘m waiting for one item to arrive, then my package is complete and ready to be shipped out! 5y
Gissy Still waiting for some things to arrive but if they don't I will send what I have first! It will be in time since I will send them priority mail👍 5y
Avanders @Valink @Gissy you guys are great w timing! This was just a general reminder in case anyone hadn't started shopping yet 😳😜😘 (edited) 5y

These are the books for my "Sky's the Limit" package to my seeeeecret #FallingForFallSwap #FFFS recipient. Is it for you?? ??? Maybe! Hint.... hmm... people may think it's hotter where you are. ?

(I didn't take a pic of the other box bc I... don't know why ??‍♀️?)

Match emails have been sent!!
Please everyone.... I sent these with a mail merge application -- there may have been glitches!! So I know you're excited, but please do not act on your matches yet!! Check to make sure it makes sense. Give it a couple days. If there are issues, I'll let you know. Otherwise, you're probably free to start hot & heavy this weekend. 😁😁
