Happy Halloween sweets!

  8. I have to wait until after Thanksgiving before I start getting excited about Christmas. Having said that, I only have one Christmas book so far. I'm looking forward to some suggestions!

  10. Hmmm never really thought about it.
    I'm not reading anything spooky or Christmassy.
    Right now I am finishing up "Turtle Moon" by Alice Hoffman, not really spooky but def. different! Lovin it! So far a big fan of hers.

    Can't say that I'm much into it, just enjoying all the pumpkins and the color orange!!! And anything ghostly..., but I'm attracted to that anyways!

  21. Happy Halloween to you too! We've already done our trick or treating so we're just hanging out for the afternoon waiting for kiddos to stop by our place.

    As for the reading...a little bit of both actually! I've got to get ready for my book club so I've already picked up a few good Christmas books that I've started. I can't wait for the holidays to be here!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Happy Halloween! :) I haven't actually picked up any Christmas books yet, so I won't be starting them anytime soon. I wish Halloween wouldn't have fallen on a Sunday. Then I could have spent more of the day reading some spooky books and watching scary movies. Unfortunately, I'm condemned to homework for most of the day.

  23. 1stdaughter: Our new house is in the country so we don't get Trick or Treaters. Bummer huh? Oooo please tell me which Christmas reads you've started? I can not wait either ;) I'm on my 3rd one.

    Natalie: OOoo so true! Sorry you have to do homework.

  24. I just picked up Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K Paul. I got the recommendation from My Friend Amy's site. It's a Christian novella and thought it would be great for the book club. :o)

  26. 1st daughter: I just read that one :) It's cute! :) You should try Christmas at Harrington's. Let me know if you try any others :)

    Koralee: Yay! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not today! Though I have read lots of paranormal books throughout the month of October.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Happy Halloween! Alas, no Halloween/spooky reads for me...unless you count superheros because they dress up in costumes. Hope you had a fab evening :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Happy Halloween!!
    I'm reading scary books but I'm always reading scary books. Halloween just makes it more fun. I love Christmas stories too and have always spent all of December reading them. With blogging I don't get to do as much as that as I used to and I miss it. That's something I need to get back to. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Not for me too. I'm done with reading for a while. Have to catch up some school works =(

    ReplyDelete
  31. Nope, just reading my usual crime/vampire/werewolf type books. Hmm... maybe I read for Halloween all year?

    ReplyDelete
  32. The only thing I read was The Best Halloween Ever, but I'm reading a book about 5 kids making a Faustian agreement so that counts. Maybe?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, I am so cheating. Already went to the bookstore last weekend and got a bunch of holiday books. I am having fun reading them :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm re-reading Coraline and then I'm going to reread Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows before the movie release.

    ReplyDelete
