It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

Yesterday was a rough day, as we memorialized my grandmother who passed away last week. It was a very emotionally draining day, but also one filled with stories of her life, about her wit and independence and artistic. We were surrounded by her artwork, reminders of her life and all that she had done. It was a perfect memorial for the life of my spirited grandma.

Last week was about Halloween and preparing for the memorial - when you have a toddler, life still moves on. We went to the Greenfield Village haunted village trick or treat thing with my brother and his family, and had a great time seeing our kiddos together. And they got us some great candy! :) Lol.

Read Last Week:

Caraval by Stephanie Garber - I thoroughly enjoyed this fast paced read. It was the perfect distraction!

Reading This Week:

I can't make up my mind. I keep bouncing all over the place. I think I will finish up my October reads with these two. I have been wanting to read Ghostland for ages!


We finished up Miss Fisher and are feeling sad about it. We miss crazy Miss Fisher and the straight laced Jack. I am definitely going to have to read the books now. We are also watching Stranger Things, and lots and lots of Halloween cartoons - including Curious George Boofest, over and We watched my favorite, Disney's Headless Horseman, and also Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin. I am sure we will watch that again tomorrow. Finally, I have been watching a lot of book vloggers do book hauls. 

I also found this great Jack Skellington/Headless Horseman theory! I love it because it combines the Disney movie I love with Nightmare Before Christmas, another favorite of mine!


  1. Such a week! I'm glad you could celebrate your grandmother's life with family. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. So sorry for your loss. Missing someone and memorializing them sometimes helps. Thanks for sharing, and have a good week.


    1. She is going to be missed terribly. :(

      Thank you, you too.

  3. Sorry to hear about your Grandmother. Just started watching Stranger Things 2! Hope this is a good week.

  4. I'm sorry for your loss. We're on episode three of Stranger Things 2. Come see what I'm reading

  5. It's bittersweet saying goodbye to a loved one but at the same time being surrounded with those who loved her as much as you do and hearing about her life is priceless. Hugs, Mama. The girls and I have been watching The Fosters on the weekends. The teen and I especially love it.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
