Good morning, and welcome to our second October Sunday Salon. Last week, I reflected mostly on September achievements. Today I’m looking ahead.
First of all, I love October. Even though my Central Valley (California) home doesn’t see much evidence of fall in the colors of the leaves, etc., that, too, will come. Unfortunately, shortly thereafter we will see the misty tule fog that characterizes this area.
But enough of that. Today I plan to celebrate those autumn events, beginning with some of the Halloween decorations that came out of the hall closet.
The ghost holding the pumpkin is a quirky addition selected by Noah, my eight-year-old grandson.
And now, let’s look back at this first week of October.
Some Blogging Events This Week:
Books Read and Reviewed-Click Titles for Reviews:
1. Buried Memories, by Irene Pence
2. Girls in White Dresses, by Jennifer Close
3. Watch Me Die, by Erica Spindler
4. The Handmaid’s Tale (e-book), by Margaret Atwood
Wow, the last book was a reread that I started in August…and finally finished! I’d been reading this one on and off throughout the other reads. It was even more chilling than I recalled from my first read…probably because some of it seems entirely possible!
What book or books really grabbed you this week…or recently?
As for some of my other reads, I had also started To the Lighthouse, by Virginia Woolf…but I’ve set that one aside. Maybe I’ll pick it up later, but for now, VW and I are parting ways.
Has anyone read this one? What were your thoughts?
As for what I’m doing today…more reading. Maybe this one:
I also have Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood resting comfortably on Sparky, my Kindle.
Hmm, both of these seem dark…but that’s a trend I’ve been on….
