  • I had a lot of fun coming up with my Top Ten Tuesday Halloween Themed Freebie Post. I ended up picking out TEN (WHAT I THINK ARE) SCARY BOOKS I EVENTUALLY WANT TO READ. I get scared really easily, so some of you might not think these books are scary at all. Though I haven't read them yet, so I'm not even sure they are scary!

  • I really enjoyed reading Brittany's (The Book Addict's Guide) BOOK AND A BEVERAGE AUTHOR EDITION WITH BECKY WALLACE! I loved Becky's answers and it made me even more anxious to get my hands on a copy of The Storyspinner (I seriously need to buy this book soon, I am so excited to read it!)
  • I enjoyed reading Cassi's (My Thoughts...Literally) DISCUSSION POST ABOUT WHY SHE NEVER FINISHES A BOOK BEFORE BED. It was interesting and makes me wonder if maybe I should consider trying this. I have been staying up way past when I should be lately and I have been so tired during the day. And most of the time it is because I stay up to finish reading a book. 
  • I LOVE Rebecca's (The Library Canary) post about SOCIAL MEDIA INSECURITIES! I definitely related to her post and I feel EXACTLY what she wrote. I struggle to keep up with everything on social media. And there are plenty of times where I feel like I missed something or like I am just not active enough in the book blogging community. It is a great post and I feel better seeing that I am not alone when it comes to my social media insecurities (though I do wish none of us had them to begin with).

  • THANKSGIVING! I LOVE Thanksgiving! Spending time with family and friends. Turkey. Mashed Potatoes. Gravy. Vegetables. DELICIOUS. 
  • WINTER COMES OUT!!!! If you know me, you know I LOVE The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. (I am obsessed!) So you can imagine HOW EXCITED I AM that Winter will finally be out soon!
  • NaNoWriMo! Time for me to work on a story. I didn't complete last year, so I am hoping I reach the 50,000 word mark this year!

What books did you read in October? How are your challenges going? Were there any blog posts that you LOVED and think I should check out? (Leave me a link!) I hope you all have a wonderful November!
