I am very excited to be sharing with you a giveaway of this awesome book! It is perfect for a Halloween read, and it really creeped me out. Just yesterday I had posted a review about this book, so please check that out if you haven’t already. The giveaway will last from October 28th at 12am EST to October 31st at 12am EST, so you can read it on Halloween.

Bookshelf Browsing (3)

KelseysBrowsingButton

This feature was created to help share our love of books and the shelves they live on! Sharing pictures you’ve taken of books and their covers, spines or even the whole shelf is the goal. They can be as creative as you want!

My inspiration for this was the feature ‘Book and a Beverage’ by Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide. If you want to participate as a guest poster send me an email, or if you want to post it on your blog link up below! You can also tweet it too. (Nothing vulgar please)

This week’s picture is all about Halloween books!

I was browsing though the Carlingwood Mall in town, and the lovely people at Coles had set up this display. I love that it’s Halloween themed and that it’s all kids books! To me there’s nothing better than trying to get kids interested in reading, and having all of these spooky options at the front of the store was a great idea! If I was younger I would definitely read all of these.

Did you read Halloween books when you were younger? What do you think of these kinds of displays?

If you’re taking your own bookish pics for your blog, link it up here! Bonus if it’s Halloween themed!

Bout of Books 2.0-Wrap up

This read-a-thon was hosted by Amanda @ On a Book Bender, and was so much fun to participate in!

I was able to reach my goal of 4 books, which is more than I had in the last read-a-thon, and what’s better I had a lot of fun doing it. I even met quite a few new people, and followed them on Twitter and their blogs.

I’m hoping to read more the next time, but will have to see how busy I get when the time comes. I haven’t listened to an audio book before, so that may be an option as well the next time.

Below is a re-cap of my goals & the updates for the entire week.

My goal: To Read 4 books-Completed!

Available time: On the bus to and from work, during lunch break, and in the evenings.

Comments:

The last two days are combined, since my boyfriend finally got home, so I spent most of yesterday evening and most of today with him. It was awesome, and since I already met my goal for the week I’m not behind on anything. Last night while I waiting for him, I decided to start a different book instead of one on my list, I haven’t yet read Wither by Lauren Destafano, but have been meaning to soon anyway.

Happy reading and Happy Halloween!!
