Sunday Wrap-up: November 5, 2016

Hello everyone,

Did you all have a good Halloween? It was pretty uneventful on my end. We don't get any trick or treaters here but we always have candy on hand just in case. Who am I trying to kid? We buy the candy to eat ourselves, haha.

I was surprised to hear from my friends and family who did give out candy, that numbers were way down compared to other years. I remember when I was younger the streets would be streaming with kids in costumes and at some houses there would be lineups at the doors.

My Reading Progress
I am happy to report that I am slowly catching up with my reading. I started and completed another book this past week..

 At the Bottom of the Stairs is a short story that is part of a mystery series. My review will be up later this month.

Currently Reading
Next up on on my TBR pile.. 

I started to read this book a couple of months ago, but the file expired before I could finish it. Then I was sent a physical copy from TLC Book Tours. I'm looking forward to getting back into this one as I was really enjoying it.

On the Blog
I have a two different guest posts from authors coming up within the next few weeks. Be sure to check back for those.

  1. Halloween was a bigger deal when i was a kid too, just in terms of how many kids were out, Our neighborhood was swarming! We don't get as many here but it was still nice, a fair amount of kids came by. It helped that the weather was decent.

    Glad your reading has picked up. My reading week was slow last week but there's always this week right?

    1. Glad to hear the weather was decent. It was here too. I wonder if it has to do with the fact that there are so many more subdivisions now than when we were growing up, so all the kids are more spread out..

      Hope you have a better reading week than last. :)

  2. Halloween was a pretty big deal when I was younger. Nowadays, you don't see too many events dedicated to Halloween, which is sad.

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    1. I think there are more events here now than when I was growing up. Perhaps some parents chose to take their kids to those instead of going door to door as much. It is sad though.

      Thanks for stopping by Ronyell.

  3. Interesting about less Halloween visitors, perhaps a sign of our times. I want to try a Santa Montefiore book, I have seen readers reading this one quite a bit. I have picked up one from her backlist to try.

  4. Which book by Santa Montefiore has you chosen to read? Hope you enjoy it.
