Sunday Post - 10/22/17

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ The Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~this meme was inspired in part by ~ In My Mailbox~ It's a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

You guys...we're 8 days out from Baby Boy's scheduled arrival! AH!!!! It's getting so close. On the one hand, I'm ready to have my body back to myself. much as possible with breastfeeding. But the mental and emotional struggles that come with having a newborn...and the changes of going from a family of three to a family of four. Well...ready or not, here we come! That being said, I've been determined to take it easy until he arrives. Monday we had a cold front move through and finally started to get some fall weather. Tuesday was normal grocery day. Wednesday, Little Girl and I went for a walk. That just might have been our last walk just the two of us. I'll be purchasing a double stroller with some gift cards that we've received so that we can continue our walks once Baby Boy arrives. Thursday, I had a doctor's appointment. Then Little Girl and I hung out with my mom for the rest of the day. Friday Little Girl turned 2!!!! Husband took off work for her birthday so that was nice. Saturday we went to a pumpkin patch and had a blast!

My annual "All Things Halloween" event is still going on--through the entire month of October--where I feature reviews from Halloween-y genres (fantasy, paranormal, supernatural, sci-fi, horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense). Over the last few years I've had mostly fantasy books as I just haven't been in the mood for much horror, but still...these are books that can get you in the mood for Halloween.

Wednesday: Can't Wait for This Heart of Mine by CC Hunter


Monday: All Things Halloween Review of Lady Midnight (The Dark Artifices, # 1) by Cassandra Clare
