Sunday Salon

Haven't done a Sunday Salon in a while! Happy Halloween!

The last 3 years we haven't had any trick-or-treaters, but this year there seem to be a ton of kids on our street so we got some candy just in case. I'm really not into Halloween, though, so I can't wait for it to be over!

There's really not a whole lot interesting going on here which also means not much reading. =( I'm getting closer and closer to finishing school but in the meantime I'm going through periods of crazy that leave little time for doing what I enjoy.

I utterly failed at reading the books for the Dueling Monsters challenge. I started Dorian Gray but never got very far in it. I want to finish it eventually but it will feel so wrong since I was supposedly reading it for a Halloween-type challenge. AND I had hoped to read Jekyll and Hyde too... haha!

I did get my October Afghanistan book read for the world challenge, but the review will have to wait since I just finished that yesterday. And then I've got to finish Hummingbirds for my blog tour Wednesday.

In other news, tomorrow is Wednesday which officially starts the holiday season in my eyes!! Yay! I've got many fun and exciting things planned for the next couple months including the wedding of a good friend of mine (in which I'm a bridesmaid), Thanksgiving, Young Frankenstein play (if I can still get tickets!!), more Orlando Magic games, the annual kids Christmas party by my work which is a amazing event, a Christmastime trip to NYC!!!!! full of lots of fun NYC outings such as Spiderman on Broadway, the Rockettes, the New York Giants game, etc. etc., then back in Florida have tix to see Trans-siberian Orchestra, then Christmas, etc. And maybe I'll get to fit in a couple more things! Love this time of year. And hopefully I'll fit in some reading too. ;)

How fun to have a Christmas trip to NYC planned! It sounds like it will be wonderful!

I love Halloween, but I'm also looking forward to the next set of holidays! Happy Sunday!

Wow, you're certainly going to be busy.

I don't really like Halloween either. Ready for November.

You should still finish Dorian! He doesn't just have to be for Halloween. :-D

Christmas in NY sounds magical! Anytime in NY, in fact. It's a dream of mine to go there. I'm a little farther away than you are, but I intend to do it!

Have a great Halloween...I, too, am looking forward to Thanksgiving.

Here's my salon:

You're not in to Halloween! Sacrilege! It's like the best day of the entire year... :)

Don't worry about failing on the Dueling Monsters challenge. It happens. I do hope you read Dorian at some point as I think it's a really great book; but like I said Jekyll is a much faster read.

It sounds like you have a fabulous winter planned! And I know all about those periods of crazy. ;-) We all just do whatever we can, when we can.

I didn't get a chance to read either of the Dueling Monsters books either. What a bummer!

It sounds like you've got some awesome stuff planned, and I hope that you have a wonderful time doing it all! I also missed out on the dueling monsters, but did get a chance to grab a copy of Dorian Gray that I am looking forward to!

I really want to get my hands on Dr. J&H. I can't believe I haven't read that one! Sheesh.

You're going to NYC for Christmas??!!!! jealous. so jealous.

Trish said...

Young Frankenstein! How fun! And I might have to steal your NYC idea for Christmas. Was hoping for a cruise but hubby is talking me out of it.

Dorian is a tough read-read Jekyll and Hyde first. It's easier. ;)
