Monday’s Minutes #43

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling – for the HP re-read.
  • The Witching Hour by Anne Rice
  • The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Goblet Witching Halloween Coraline

Finished: The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, which I reviewed on Saturday.  I also finished Bird Box by Josh Malerman.  I’ll try to get the review for it posted before the end of the month.

Total pages read: 778

Total # of books for the year: 75.  Halloween approaches!  The Boyfriend and I have been watching “Penny Dreadful” and we have plans to finish the 2nd season before Halloween so we can spend the night watching “Hocus Pocus” and other favorites while drinking red wine and eating garlic cheese bombs, popcorn, candy corn, and chocolate frosted pumpkin muffins.  I’ve already got my books picked out for November, but I will be reading them purely for enjoyment whenever I have time outside of schoolwork and job hunting.  Even though I’ve been posting something nearly every day, I already feel like a weight has been lifted.  We’ll see how long that lasts as I move into next month and face down three exams.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Oh, just seeing that Goblet of Fire cover gives me warm fuzzies. That was my favorite HP growing up—I just loved the excitement of the tournament and all the new characters!

    Your Halloween plans sound absolutely delightful! I never thought about frosting my pumpkin muffins, though I often toss chocolate chips into the batter.

    Hooray for less stress! Best of luck with your exams. 🙂

    1. Ooh, I never thought of putting chocolate chips in the batter! Do you think doing both would be too much? 😉 Goblet of Fire is quickly becoming my favorite. Harry acts much more like a typical kid.
