I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday today. May you be spooked, thrilled, and so on. I tried to think of a fun post for today, but I couldn’t think of anything. That was a tough decision. There are so many ways to do that. I could do a book review. Talk about my all-time favorite Halloween post. However, I have so many!
Here is a treat for you. Please enjoy this clip from one of my all time favorite movies I enjoyed watching as a kid around Halloween. Yes, it’s corny. But, you know what? I don’t think I could ever stop loving it. Hello, it has Tim Curry in it. If you would like to see the movie, it’s called The Worst Witch. In my defense. I was a child of the eighties.
For most of October, I was on edge. Torn on what I would dare write this November. Nothing was coming to me. Do I dare write romance? Maybe fantasy? I was about to go nuts. After some time, I decided on young adult.
This would be my first young adult. Never have tried it. I love young adult books, but never even thought for a second on writing one. Why? That, I’m not sure.
It will take place somewhere haunted with a witch growing up. That’s all I can tell you for now. The story is of course still in the works. I do have the plot and at least the three main characters. I’m sure as the story goes, the plot will change. Characters, of course, will be added or removed.
I still have two days to decide if I even want to do chapter outlines. Those outlines always change, but I like knowing the direction I’m going in.
No clue on the title, but hey I came up with the character names and have a basic idea what they look like. So that’s definitely a plus.
Hopefully, I’ll have an update on day one. We shall see. I feel confident right now, but that could easily change two days from now.
I do have a goal to at least stay up until 12:30 am on November 1st. Fingers crossed!
Last one for the night, I swear. This month’s theme was Something Wicked This Way Comes. Love the box. I mean who wouldn’t want Edgar Allan Poe socks? Plus, a new copy of Sleepy Hollow.
I’m not sure on this book. Normally, I’ll know the book they put in there. But, this one. I never heard of. I’m pretty sure I haven’t even seen it on any blogs, YouTube videos, etc. Unless, I wasn’t paying attention. That does happen from time to time. Either way, looking forward to reading the book.
I did get excited when I saw the Dark Arts Coffee. Too bad it’s decaf. Oh, who I’m kidding. You’ll know I’ll still try it out.
Yes, there is a pen in the box this month. It’s a fountain pen. Love those! Also, as someone who loves to write. A pen is perfect.
I have a lot of hauls it seems. Be prepared. I have another one coming after this. Plus, two more subscription boxes should be coming this week.
Yes, I’m still in a Star Wars mood. What can I say? Be prepared for many more Star Wars magazines to show up. Although, I get Star Wars Insider all the time. I am a few magazines behind…sssshhhh..
Sorry. The Doctor Who bookmarks are blurry. No matter what I did, my camera didn’t want to focus on them. Did have to throw some
Did have to throw some Tolkin in there. The magazine looked very interesting.
There were so many books that I wanted, but I guess I’ll just have to add them to my TBR until I can get them. I should though work on the many books, and I mean many books on my TBR list first.

I might have gone a little crazy today. I’ve been a fan of the Star Wars movies for years and I mean years. But, I feel like I haven’t been a true fan lately because I have so many books to catch up on. So anything Star Wars I can get my hands on? I’m all for it. Even the junior books. Hey, I managed to get one of them done already.
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get Logan. I’ve been up in the air about that. Not sure why. I didn’t have interest in it when it was in the theaters. After some deep thought and my arm starting to hurt from the books. I decided to go for it.
Before I Fall, I also thought about. I usually read the book first before I see the movie. So depending on my schedule. I might try to read it this week. Or, I’ll just have to watch the movie first.

Before I Fall
A cute little bracelet. I might have already worn it.
Is it bad that I get excited for things like post its?
Bookmarks! Never can have too many bookmarks.
The book. Haven’t heard too much about this one. Looking forward to it.
A description of what was in the box.
Looking forward to reading the book. Sorry the picture on the bracelet wasn’t the best. Took a few shots just to get that one. Too much of a glare. I like the bookmarks even though I’ve never read The Golden Compass. That series is on my list of many books to read.
Did a mixture of fandoms on this haul. I love water bottles and plus, I’m more of a bag/tote person. Used my rewards from Hot Topic on these two items.
