Happy HALLOWEEN weekend to you all!


I'm posting early, as I have to work, then it's a fun night in store!
Sadly I have no book to share this week. I am just about to begin a book, but haven't touched it yet. 

Halloween is my favorite day of the year so I am allowed to slack off right?! I'll leave you with a photo of my costume... Share a link in the comments if you post your costume. I'd love to see them!

No BB this week.



Q:  Do you read classics? If so, what was your favorite?

A: I do read classics, though, I've not read many. One of my favorite books of all time is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, but another is East of Eden by John Steinbeck. Both for obviously different reasons. The first has teachings that will always be prevalent. The latter is a family saga that stuck with me since reading it. It was epic!

  6. Love the costume. For work we dressed up as Snap Crackle and Pop (I was Crackle) then I was a princess elf for my friends D&D theme porch party.

    I just saw To Kill a Mockingbird on Broadway, it was fabulous. I also love East of Eden, but more the movie than the book.

  8. I love your costume. :-) My daughter wore her Wonder Woman costume to her the Halloween event at her dance studio, but she was haunted beauty for Halloween itself. I hope you had a great Halloween!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
