Fourth Week of October

halloween-spooky-gif-trick-or-treat

Oh no! The last full week of October has come and gone and we only have a sweet few days left until the best holiday of the year. (Thanks Michigan for making sure the weather for the entire month was absolutely awful.) Mr. Cupcakes & Machetes and I attended a last minute Halloween party with last minute costumes. The Halloween store was picked clean and we ended up as a wolf (me) and a plague doctor (him). It was fun and we decided that we’re going to throw a Halloween party next year. (We usually throw one every year but haven’t the last couple.) I also realized that our Halloween decorations were sadly lacking and that is going to start being fixed as soon as Halloween is over and I hit all the clearance I can!

Reading – 

I had a week full of Poe. I don’t re-read anything very often but since I hadn’t read these stories since I was a teenager, it was a perfect time for a refresher.

The Murders in the Rue Morgue – Short Story Review

The Tell-Tale Heart – Short Story Review

The Black Cat – Short Story Review

Today, I’m going to be starting Parasite by Mira Grant. It works both for horror for the end of the month and rolls into Sci-Fi November. Plus, it’s the book club selection for next month. Killin’ all the birds with all the stones.

Watching – 

We’ve continued watching The Haunting of Hill House, I’m still not very impressed but I’m sure we’ll follow it to the end anyway.

2.5 stars. Nice concept, but not very moving otherwise.

Have you attended any Halloween parties this year? If so, what did you dress up as??
