Blogging, Bookish and Real Life News:
This week was rather cold but I loved it. Saturday it rained all day and this coming week it’s suppose to be a mild week, hoping not to cold on halloween. Both of my kids don’t want to do trick or treating which makes me sad but that means I can stay home and watch
Christmas Movies Scary Halloween Movies 😉
On Friday my daughter’s school had a trunk or treat. If you don’t know what that is, the kids trick or treat by coming to your car that is all decorated. It was fun and our car looked super cute. ☺️
We had little mini lights and lanterns to light up the car when it got dark. They had a lot of kids and I went through three huge bags of candy. I think over 250 in each bag and I gave one candy to each kid. It was my first time doing it and I am hoping to do it again next year.
Last week the kids at her school were given pumpkin to paint for a painting contest that a local funeral home hosts. The pumpkins are voted on and the kids can win a gift card. Out of 40 kids in the 5th grade my daughter WON THIRD PLACE! I was so excited for her and she got a $20 Gift Card to Target!
I finished Sky in the Deep this week and it turned out to be a pretty good book, I wasn’t sure the first 50% but I am glad I stuck around because the last 50 was pretty awesome. Now I need some more YA Viking stories to read because those are a lot of fun. I am going to read a quick book this week and then start on my books for Can you read a series in a Month Challenge. I originally wanted to read the Harem of Hearts series but the last book wasn’t out yet and I wasn’t sure if she would be finished in time. Well the book came out Monday and I quickly switched the series I wanted to read for the challenge. I read the first book already but have no problem reading it again before getting into the rest of the series. The second book is a monster but I am looking forward to reading this epic series because OMG Allison (Alice) and NINE, yes NINE hot guys in her harem! I can’t wait! ☺️
Blogging is going pretty good, I was able to do a few things on Saturday and hoping to finish up some stuff after my daughters game today. I wont be able to visit until later tonight since I wont be around in the AM. Her game is at 10:30 and we have to be there 45 Minutes early, probably be taking a trip to Dunkin Donuts for a very large coffee before the game. I am hoping it isn’t too cold.

What I grabbed
The last few months I grabbed a lot of anthologies that I have been dying to read, so far I haven’t read any of them.I feel like I need to make a challenge that forces people to finally read those anthologies that are sitting on their kindles….don’t steal my idea! Oh No! Look for something next year because I GOT AN IDEA!!! 😳
So tell me what have you been reading and up to this week?
Hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
