Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
It was Hot, Muggy, Grey and just plan awful Monday to Thursday…Then, I am not sure what happened (the hurricane probably) Friday morning we woke up to 58 degrees. Like no subtle change just BAM it’s cold….no more hot, muggy, soupy days until next year. I am pretty happy about that, now we just need the sun to stay out for a couple of days in a row because as much as I love a good storm, I could live without rain for a few or more days. I think the sun has been out all day twice in two weeks.
Today we will adventure into the pumpkin patch and grab some apples and pumpkins. It’s officially the spooky season, crisp air and a bowl full of yummy apples. Now the trees just need to change color. (I will be commenting on blogs later today when I get home)
I am doing pretty good with Blog Ahead, I currently have 10 posts scheduled, some of them for Jan and Feb. I have a bunch of longer posts that I plan to write in the next two weeks but also finish out the month of October. I am back to writing better notes for books (plus dewey is next week) so I can at least have a few review posts ready but like I mentioned before I am just going to slowly finish out the year without pushing myself and start the new year all fresh and new.
Speaking of Dewey, I am so looking forward to doing this read-a-thon, it’s one of my favorites. I am hoping to read at least 3 books that day and spend sometime writing the reviews also. That way I will have at least 3 books for review in November and will be ahead again. You can follow me on Twitter and Instragam to see how I am progressing. I should be updating a lot there. I also plan to update here but only a kick off post, Half way and an end post. I am not sure if I will have a Sunday Post. I don’t plan to read all 24 hours (because I need to adult the next day) but I am hoping to get in a good 16/18 hours.
The next few months is filled with fun events for reading Dewey Read-a-thon on October 20th and then the HoHoHo Read-a-thon hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer November 9th through the 18th. Can you read a series in a month? sign ups are now Live! challenge starts November 1st

What I read:
Cover for point horror aren’t very big and now I have OCD big time with how uneven this is but I am going to let it go….but it’s gonna be hard.
I am loving the idea of diving into old point horror books but Elizabeth is calling and I can’t stop wanting to read it. So I am going to read that next for Fraterfest.
What I grabbed
Lot of the books I want aren’t out yet so I didn’t grab anything this week. Hoping to stick with some books I already have. I will have more stuff next week since my book boxes will be coming! 🙂
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
