Week In Review: October 25-31

Week in Review!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

This is my favorite time of year and though the month of October was probably one of the worst of my life (boy in cast, ear infections, fevers, coughs,
vaccine dilemma, exhaustion) I am determined to have a good Halloween. So far, my husband and I are hopefully wrapping up colds, our son is seemingly okay, so he is headed to Grandma and Grandpa's tomorrow for the day. Our plan? I watch horror movies all day long. Halloween 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7! Did you know they have all movies on DVD 1-8 in a neat boxed set? I did not! I have my crusty DVDs anyway that I have had for years now.
Popcorn, stew, candy and my comfy pumpkin pants (yes, they are pants with pumpkins on them) will also be with me throughout the day. Yesiree, it's time to dork out!

As for my Week in Review for books, I did receive a few review copies that I am pretty excited about. I continue to be tickled by the opportunities I am getting to read so ma
ny different books from so many different and wonderful publishers. This week I received Syren by Angie Sage- Book 5 in the Septimus Heap series. I have read only the first 3 so I have some catching up to do before I read and review this one.

I also received These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer. I can't believe I've never read her before but I think I am going to like her. Sourcebooks is republishing some of her titles and was kind enough to send one to me for review!

I only did one review this week for Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange. It was a good one to have during the week of Halloween I think.

I also signed up for my first Blog Tour for The Secret of Joy by Melissa Senate.

All and all it was a pretty good week, minus some of
the health issues. I am looking forward to a happy and healthy November.

Have a great Halloween and as always, Happy Reading!

Love the Halloween plans! Sounds like fun! We try to make time for the Halloween movies, but alas, I've still not perfected the formula. Definite jealously on the Syren book...the Septimus Heap series is pretty good! Like a light-weight Harry Potter...happy reading!

Sounds like a great way to spend Halloween! Our tradition is to watch The Crow every year.

Love your blog & your pumpkin pants so comfortable. I have some (not pumpkin) that have snowflakes all over them. I tried to get a scary movie for this weekend but alas, Netflix didn't come through so Salem's Lot will be here next week. Your halloween plans sounds great & hope you have a great time!

I read the first two books in the Septimus Heap series a while back and adored it. I just never got around to continuing.

By the way, I finished the second Spellman book by Lisa Lutz. I love this series and am going to the library tomorrow for book 3!
