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!

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. 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

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
