October Wrap-Up: Another Successful Bookish Halloween Bonanza!

Ah, the bittersweet conclusion of October. While I love moving into winter and the Christmas season, my horror-loving soul is always sad to say goodbye to October for a whole year. That all being said, this October was fabulous! I got to visit Disneyland and attend Mickey’s Halloween Party (yes, I’m a child) with a good friend, and my Bookish Halloween Bonanza was wonderfully successful!

One Classic and One ARC Per Month

It’s a personal goal to read a classic and advanced readers copy each month. This month I missed my goal. Boo! I didn’t get to an ARC. At least I went above and beyond with the classics!

Classic: Charlotte’s Webb by EB White, Dracula by Bram Stoker

  1. What exactly is Mickey’s Halloween Party?
    I enjoyed your Bookish Halloween Bonanza! And all of your Halloween photos on Bookstagram. 😊
    I had a nice October. My favorite book of the month was Starfish. It really hit me in the feels.

    1. Starfish, eh?! Will look into it! And the Halloween Party is when the park closes early so only people with tickets to the party can stay – they pass out a bunch of candy, have a special scary parade and fireworks show. It’s pretty fun (:

  2. Ohhh I love that last bookstagram picture, very…Halloween-esque ahah, I love it 🙂 Also, it’s so great that you had a good month and went to Disneyland. We’re all children at heart and it’s good to stay that way, I’m not going to blame you for that AT ALL ahah 🙂
    Hope you’ll have a lovely November! x
