In My Reading Life

Last week, I finished The Poet’s Handbook by Judson Jerome and Adam of the Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray. Then I read Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing. Right now, I’m reading The Stranger Beside Me: Ted Bundy The Shocking Inside Story by Ann Rule.

In The Rest Of My Life

Five things that made me happy last week:

  1. I won a giveaway! I get a new book.
  2. I ate a pumpkin-flavored cupcake, and it was good.
  3. Survivor started. (Yes, I love reality TV. Don’t judge me.)
  4. Speaking of TV, who’s watching American Horror Story: Cult? I think it’s terrifying, but I’ve heard that people who don’t follow American politics are completely baffled by it.
  5. It’s October! October is my favorite month because Halloween.

Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!


  1. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry has been sitting on my shelves for /months/; I just haven't been motivated enough to start it! Hopefully I'll feel differently after your review!

  2. Congrats on the book win!!! I love pumpkin anything so yum. October is my favorite month too :)

  3. Yay for the giveaway win! I also got a new giveaway win yesterday! Rather, I didn't really win it, I just picked it up from the post office :D
    And I also love Halloween :) so have a great October!

  4. October is awesome, I can't wait for Halloween! Actually I can, because that would mean October is over, and I want to savor the month, with all the autumnal and spooky stuff lol. And nice book haul- yay for Game of Thrones!

    Have a nice week.

  5. I'm so happy that October is finally here! Now I get the chance to read some scary books for the month!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

  6. Ooo, you got me interested to check out the latest American Horror Story. I watched the first season and have been meaning to continue.

  7. Adam of the Road looks interesting. October is my favorite month for reading, I love fall and Halloween, and I might check out American Horror Story now. It would be so fitting for this month.

    My It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

  8. Spooky Booky time is the best thing about October for me. We don't really do Halloween where I live which is good as I don't answer the door once it gets dark and I hate children!I like the cooler weather though and it's an excuse for some horror books and films!

  9. I need to check out the Margaret Attwood as I haven't read it. Not so sure re: pumpkin cupcakes - a flavour I can't get away with. Have a good week.

  10. I love October too! I really liked Endurance.

  11. I hope you enjoy your books this week and have a wonderful week. Happy reading. 😁❤️

  12. You read an interesting assortment of books. Are you trying to catch up on the Newbery Award books? Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  13. I read Adam of the Road ages ago when I was in 9th grade. I stayed up late to finish it because I was graduating and only had a day to read it before the school library closed for they year.

    Come see what I'm reading

  14. What a cute blog.

    ENJOY your books and reading week.

  15. So will there be pics of you in your Halloween costume?

  16. Yay for the book win! I love winning books. Halloween can be a lot of fun. October is great since the weather is usually nice plus candy. It is a win-win.

  17. I need you to show me your reading ways!
    I would do anything to finish three books in a week.
    If I read 4 to 5 books a month I feel like a champion haha.
    I use to love Survivor. My parents and I would watch it together all the time. I need to get back into it.
    There is not enough money in the world to get me to watch American Horror Story. I am such a baby, I would never sleep again.
    I love that you won the giveaway that's always exciting!
