Halloween Hop

Boo!
It's Friday, and that means it's another Book Blog Hop day. Again a huge thanks to Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books for hosting this weekly event which we all love so much!
Book Blogger Hop
Now with Halloween being this Sunday, I found that a lot of the meme's I participate in went for the spook factor this week and I sadly didn't have anything to say on the matter. To be honest, Halloween isn't my favorite holiday. No before you send the mob over, I'm just much more of a winter person. I like fall, but all of the weather changes and ends and starts and everything usually leave me pretty depressed by the end of October, so by the time Halloween gets here I am in no mood to be social. Perhaps the more important fact here is that I can't tolerate scary things. Really. Horror movies are not my friend. Even the more terrible of horror movies will keep me up for at least a night (example: the faculty. I didn't actually think the water alien was coming for be but still). Scary books are worse. Most of the time suspenseful books are enough to keep me on edge, and if you introduce anything remotely scary and I'll just put it down. The scariest thing I've read is House of Leaves, and I was one of the few people who didn't find it as scary as the internet would have would-be  readers expecting.
So I'll be happy when this weekend is over, all the kids are at home with their candy and I'm able to start listening to Christmas music and planning Thanksgiving dinner.

Alright, I promise to never go on a Holiday rant again. Back to book related things -

The question Jennifer chose for us this week is:
"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"


I've always dreamed of having a library in my home, with a few overstuffed chairs and lots and lots of windows. Really big windows. Failing that I'd settle for a Kindle right now. I just spent 7 hours on a train, for what was supposed to be a 5 hour trip and would have loved to have more books with me then I was able to carry.

I'd also like to thank my readers for sticking around for the past few weeks, I know I haven't been updating and reviewing as much as a good blogger should. I think I've finally pulled myself out of my slump and should have a new review up tomorrow.


For everyone that's over from the Hop, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Hey Sarah, I'm not much of a Haloween person either, although I did read a few spooky reads for a challenge. Have a nice weekend!

The personal library seems to be a very popular choice. I know that's what I picked.

I'm not a fan of Halloween either, mainly because its always so stinkin cold here by that time and it just seems like a big hassle.

What I really need is a Tardis. It is bigger on the inside so there is plenty of storage space, and it travels in time so I can go back and read at the same time as I am doing something else. :D

Funny, I can read a scary book, but scary movies are just too intense for me. I'm with you on the libarary! Hopping by to visit your blog!
