The Weekly Recap: A One Book Kind of Week (Week of 10/23/16)

Happy Sunday! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffienated Book Reviewer; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Book Photo Sundays, hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog.

-MY LIFE-
Hello everybody! I did a lot of work this week, which is good, but that means that I had less time to read and work on the blog. I forgot to make my TTT post this week, and I only read one book! Hopefully this week will be a better week for reading. My Halloween plans include eating junk food, turning off all of the lights, and watching Gilmore Girls. Have a safe Halloween, and have a fabulous week everybody! :)

  1. Those sound like pretty good Halloween plans! And I only got through one book too. Just not a good reading week. :(

    Hope you like Summer Days, I read that one earlier this year. some stories I liked , some not so much, like any anthology I guess. Hope it mostly works for you. And The Killing game looks good.

  3. Love the look of some of your books this week.

    Sounds like Halloween will be a good one. I've just got Netflix especially in time for The Gilmore Girls return later this month! Although I'm giving it a bit of a workout beforehand! ;-)

  6. Snap, my Halloween Plans are exactly the same as yours. Summer Days has been on my TBR with forever, I hope you are enjoying it. It's a great way of sampling so many authors. Love your photos and I'm about to go follow you on IG :) PS - your hair is fab!

    1. Why thank you, Trish! I meant to read the Christmas one when it first came out (and spoiler alert, I still haven't). So, I figured that I would try the summer one because it was at the library. Have a fabulous week! :)

  7. That anthology, Summer Days, wasn't there a Christmas themed book by that group of authors? I have the Knife of Never Letting Go, and have been pushed to read it by a friend who considers it one of the best trilogies ever. I look forward to seeing what you think of it.

    1. Ya, it's called 'My True Love Gave to Me,' and was released in 2014. I still need to read it, so if I enjoy the summer collection then I'll pick it up. :)

  9. Sounds like a great time. Black Waters has me curious and I don't think you can go wrong a Toni Anderson novel.

  11. Bwahaha, those sound like great Halloween plans, and you have lots of new mysteries to read. We usually make a fire in the driveway and hand out goodies. Hope you have more time this week.

    1. Thanks! I bought a huge container of candy to pass out, but then I decided that I wanted it all to myself. :)

  12. Oh, lovely books! I have never read Patrick Ness, but I've heard good things. Enjoy!

    Halloween is a quiet time; we never have Trick or Treaters...but I do have a few of my resin figurines out to celebrate.

  13. Love the sound of your Halloween plans. What fun! We don't really celebrate Halloween here so maybe I'll curl up with a good book although I wanted to rewatch all the Gilmore Girls seasons too....

    Hope you have a lovely week ahead.
