October Monthly Wrap Up (2018)




Off the Blog:


Hey everyone! I can't believe it's November already!  Not much really happened in October, other than me and my family just watching Halloween movies throughout the month.  Some of the Halloween themed movies I watched during October was the "Halloweentown" movie series, "The Nightmare Before Christmas," "Beetlejuice" and "Hocus Pocus!"  I have always made it a tradition for myself to watch mostly horror themed films in October and I managed to watch a lot of awesome horror movies!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween!






On the Blog:

I actually managed to read more books this month than I did for September, which is awesome!  I also got a ton of book copies from various publishers, which was quite impressive for me since I don't get too many books from publishers.  I also got this awesome box set of "Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children" that had photos inside of it and I just loved the creepy photos inside the box set!

  2. I read Simon before seeing the movie on DVD this summer. I loved Illuminae and Gemina and now have to read Obsidio. Shadow of the Fox is high on my wish list for my birthday/Christmas as I love Julie Kagawa's books. Have you read City of Ghosts? It was my favorite October book.
