October involved my annual All Things Halloween event--a month of paranormal, supernatural, mystery/thriller, etc reviews and books. With Asher's arrival this month, reading and blogging took a little back seat. Thankfully I had reviews scheduled ahead for the entire month, but I'm behind on responding to comments. I hope you guys understand. I hope everyone had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

A Word About November:
I'm trying to settle into my new normal with being a mother of two and adjusting to a new baby. Knowing that Asher would be arriving in October, I scheduled myself a blogging break for the entire month of November. Unlike when Ever was born, I don't have any reviews scheduled for the month. I also don't plan to be active with responding to comments or visiting other blogs. I really just want to use this time to enjoy my brand new baby. I hope you all understand. When Ever was born, I found that my reading time took a significant hit and blogging became a lot more "by the seat of my pants" than I'm used to. I feel sure that will be the same and maybe even worse now that I've got two littles to look after. But obviously, these two are my priority. Don't worry, I have December almost completely scheduled already so I'll definitely return to posting regularly then even if I'm still not able to visit others and comment as much as I'd like. I hope you all have a great November and Happy Thanksgiving (for the US).
