The Weekly Wrap-Up (30): The Holidays Are Nigh

How is it already a week into OCTOBER?! Where did September go? Did anyone report that an entire month was stolen?! Oh wait, government has shut down, so...
(Not to make light of that. Trust me, in this military/government household, it's taking its toll.)
Happy October, all! I'm trying to plan my Halloween costume, because I'm the one coordinating and running the Halloween meeting and costume contest at my work -- I'm kiiiiinda figuring if I'm running the costume contest I have to wear one? Ugh. I never dress up. I've got a few ideas, but so far I'm not too happy with any of them. And I'm running out of time since I always, always make mine every year. Any suggestions? Help? What will you be dressing up as this year?

In case you missed it...
Coming up...
A review of How To Love by Katie Cotugno, and a series review of Just One Day & Just One Year by Gayle Forman! I'm going to tackle Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner's A-Z Book Survey, and that fancy giveaway button on my sidebar? It's been there for months, and I'm FINALLY going to get that up!
Onto the books!

  1. You received some good reads as well! It's been a great week for both of us :)

  2. My friends want to do a Doctor Who theme (OMG NEWLY OBSESSED) and they are going as Amy and Clara. So I'll either be a third companion (Donna!) or The Doctor (11).

  3. Have you had a chance to read Two Boys Kissing? I am reading now. Took me a while to get used to the style with the Greek Chorus and all, but it's pretty amazing.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! Have a wonderful day <3
