Manic Monday Recaps (Week 11/1/10)

I don't know about you guys, but I'm actually pretty freaked out that it's November.  I just saw Christmas aisles in Target... what's up with that?  The year is over!!  Ugh.  I had a very hectic month with tons of events every week.  So here's a pictorial of my month:

My little girl's 5th Birthday - she wanted a Halloween themed costume party 

Halloween Horror Nights with our BFF's - Universal Studios
Orlando, FL

Pumpkin Patch Fun


Here's what I plan on reading this week:

Last week I read the following:
- The Next Queen of Heaven by Gregory Maguire [review]
- The Ivy by Lauren Kunze and Rina Onur
- Ecstasy in Darkness by Gena Showalter [review/giveaway]
- Jane by April Lindner
- Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning [review]
- A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle  

I reviewed the following:
- Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John [review]
- The Twin's Daughter by Lauren Baratz-Logsted [review]
- Rise Again by Ben Tripp [review]

I hope you all had the wonderful, funtastic October that I had.   Various winners were chosen for outstanding giveaways over the weekend, but just in case you missed the post and my e-mail, here's a link to that post again.  If you haven't yet, please make sure to send me your info.  

I also wanted to take a minute to thank Missie for asking me to participate in the Trick or Treat for Books event.  I had such a fun time - plus I also wanted to thank my other lovely co-hosts Tara at 25 Hour Books and Felicia at Geeky Blogger's Book Blog.  For those of you who participated in the giveaway, the winner was chosen and you can you find out who it was over at Missie's (it just might be you!).

More giveaway results coming soon as well as the first post including early sign-up post for the Holiday Reading Challenge (which was a big hit last year!).  Tomorrow on the Bookcase of the Week we have an Author Edition - we meet author Antony John (Five Flavors of Dumb) and see his bookcases as well as some of his favorite writing spots.  So stay tuned for that plus a very special giveaway from Antony. 

Have a great week friends!

LOVE the pics. You and the hubster always appear to have such fun :)

Secret about me: I am the bigggest chicken. In all my years living near Halloween Horror Nights, I've always been to chicken to go. ;)

Look at all those awesome pics! What a great month you had. Hard to believe it's November right? It seems like every month moves more quickly all the time.

I hope you enjoy Happy Ever After, I enjoyed it and am sad that series is over :(

I was just mentioning in a different comment that I really need to get Mostly Good Girls. I've been seeing it all over blogs and hearing it's great.

Wait are those pasteles ?

Nely said...

@Juju - Girl, you know they are. You can't go to a Cuban party and not have pastelitos... it just wouldn't be a party without them ;)

Tales of Whimsy said...

Nely: Amen mija amen! Now I'm craving them and you so can't find them in Tally.
