If you celebrated Halloween over the weekend, I hope you had a wonderful time and dressed to impress! What a joy it is seeing all the costumes on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. People are extremely clever and funny, so those of you who get down and dirty during Halloween are amazing. Who (or what) did you dress up as? If you happen to have kids, you've probably been celebrating Halloween all month AND get to go trick or treating tonight. My girls were tripping over themselves to get out the door at 8am to go Trick or Treating, and more than a little disappointed to know they still had a few hours to wait.

If it looks like things have been put on hold here, I apologize for that- I have been preoccupied. And that is a GOOD thing. Sorry to be cryptic, but I have been given an opportunity to work on something I have wanted for a long time and it is taking up a lot of my free time. I haven't spent my extra time reading, but I plan to make that a priority again. I should be able to read, write reviews/updates, AND work on my super secret project.

The other unfortunate news about all the new stuff I'm doing means I don't have time to participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with starts tomorrow. I can't add anything else to my to-do list. That doesn't mean YOU shouldn't do it- I think everyone should try and do the (almost) impossible and write during NaNoWriMo. It's fun and stressful and will push you. I'll try my hand again at Camp NaNo in July.

I will be participating in November's book for the Bookish Angst Book Club. We have chosen Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, the true story of the African-American women who helped put a man on the moon. December will see the release of a film by the same title starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe. Please join us in reading this amazing story and I'll be posting more about our discussion schedule at the end of the week.
