We managed to get through Halloween in our parts…and here’s one of my favorite “family” pumpkins, belonging to my eldest son, who lives in Berlin.

  1. I have Snowflakes…, and all the rest of these books are on my very long wish list!! It rained here on Halloween so we didn’t have any visitors. Where my grandkids live they trick or treated lst Sunday.

    Have a great week!!

    • Thanks for stopping by, Lori…I was happy not to get any Trick or Treaters….I had none for the last six years, and lots of leftover candy. So I didn’t buy any this year. LOL

      Good that there were no visitors.

      Enjoy your week!

  2. If you’re looking for a different sort of memoir, I’m currently enjoying Relish by Lucy Knisley — a food memoir written in graphic novel format.

    Have a great week!

    I was thinking about getting Starter House, but I forget what changed my mind. 🙂

    Have a WONDERFUL week. I always love stopping by your blog.

  4. Hi Laurel-Rain,

    Another great selection of books this week, although the one which caught my eye, both for its title and the simplicity of the cover, was ‘Sea Creatures’

    This is a new to me author and the reviews do seem to have been a bit mixed, but definitely one worth trying for me.

    Thanks for sharing your new finds and have a good week.

    • Neither have I, but yesterday, at Barnes & Noble, they were playing Christmas music. I want to savor Thanksgiving first! lol

      Thanks for stopping by, Sam, and I love Laura Lippman’s books! Enjoy your week.

  5. Looks like you had a good week, and some good reading coming up. I’m totally with you on the hello to turkey day thing- now that OCtober is over I’m totally in the Thanksgiving/ Christmas mood (it might be a little early for Christmas, but I’m going with it). 🙂 Have a great week!

  6. Haha that’s a great jack-o-lantern. Christmas at the Beach looks good – hope that will be me this year! After I’m Gone also sounds exciting. Enjoy them all!

    • Yes, it could be too ambitious, as I’ve got a new obsession: watching movies and shows via Netflix, with my laptop hooked up to the TV. I spent all afternoon doing that yesterday! Thanks for visiting, Deb, and enjoy your week.
