HALLOWEEN!!!! We’ve been waiting and waiting and it’s finally HERE!!! But guys, my fiancé is being a big stink and won’t let me watch Hocus Pocus tonight! AHH!! I’m screaming inside! Granted, we are watching Stranger things which is spooky and creepy but I really wanted a classic! I also wanted to watch Casper. Anyone else love Casper?? I love that little ghost is!!
Day 31 || #bibliospooktober || Happy Halloween!———————————————————–
I can’t believe it’s already Halloween! As I write this, its current a few minutes past midnight (so it’s not exactly Halloween anymore more me) but oh well! I spent the whole entire day wondering around NYC with my best friend so hence why I’m posting this late tonight! ———————————————————–
I hope each and everyone of you had a fun, spooky, and safe Halloween this year!

Happy Halloween!!!! Today is my and my husbands 2 year wedding anniversary!!! We celebrated with cheesecake and legos I love having a Halloween anniversary!!
This amazing candle was a custom order from @wickandfable and it is a gem in my candle collection! Until the Very End is my favorite quote from the entire HP series, and my all time favorite scene!! I also had it in my own wedding vows!

Of course, J. K. Rowling is another favorite writer of mine, but I want to switch things up just a little bit!
Well some of it at least. Between Book Outlets sale at the beginning of the month and my library’s used book sale I ended up with 10 new hardback books!! Not to mention all the bookish goodies I got! For November I’m planning to try to read a majority of the books I bought and tame my tbr pile some. Fingers crossed
My rep period is coming to an end with @highlandbluffstudio And tomorrow is the last day to use my code STMETCALFE10!! They are currently holding a rep search for Nov and Dec! I highly recommend you go enter! This is a fantastic company to work with and their products have all been amazing!

#bibliospooktober DAY 30 Molly Weasley’s birthday/ Harry Potter appreciation
Happy Birthday to Molly Weasley! I love her character so much, she’s maternal and loving yet strong and incredibly courageous. I would love to be invited to The Burrow for tea!
Sundays are for blankets and cuddling and good stories--either on tv or in a good book. I finished watching Stranger Things Season 2 yesterday and loved it and watched the new episode of Walking dead today. So much tv! Time for a book I think.
What have you been up to this weekend?
#bibliospooktober prompt is favorite fall activity. Mine is going to take pictures of leaves changing but I can't do that this year because I live somewhere they don't change So I will live vicariously through Instagram I guess haha

Day 24 || #bibliospooktober || Funko Pop Love ———————————————————–
Meet Sir Thomas Sharpp! Have any of you seen the movie Crimson Peak? It came out two years ago and my friend and I loved it so much we saw it twice within the span of two days (in theaters) and I HAD to buy the funko pop! If you’re looking for a great gothic horror movie to watch to get into the Halloween spirit, you should defiantly give it a go!
I really want to make progress or finish reading a couple series that I’m in the middle of (Outlander, Shades of Magic, Queen of the Tearling, Magnus Chase) but I also really want to start this series.
We don’t rally carve pumpkins but we’ve started the tradition of letting our little color/paint pumpkins. Last year they used markers. This year I had some purple, green, and black paint for them to use. They have a blast and the clean up isn’t bad. Do you have any pumpkin traditions?
Favorite fall activity? Well, that’s easy! I love reading (obviously), but I especially love fall reading. In the PNW, fall typically means long, wet, grey days that are best spent indoors with a good book and a nice cup of tea. #bibliospooktober
It’s only 2 days until Halloween
Any one have exciting plans?
I was tagged by @kat.bookish to do the #thisorthatbookish tag so let’s get started
ToG or ACOTAR series? Neither( iv only read part of ACOTAR
Harry Potter or Twilight? Harry Potter definitely
ADSOM Or Three Dark Crowns? Neither ( I haven’t read these yet)
Sarah J Maas or Marie Lu? I haven’t read enough of Sarah’s work to decide. I also need to read Marie Lu’s books
Marissa Meyer or Cassandra Clare? I haven’t read books from either of these authors.
Tana French or Karin Slaughter? I don’t know who these people are♀️
Sylvia Day Or Colleen Hover? Sylvia Day.
Oh my goodness! If anything this tag as told me that I need to read more so I can answer these questions.♀️
Day 29 #allthebooksoct Scariest Book you read? I’m not sure I have I don’t really read Horror or scary books
Day 29 #bibliospooktober Favourite fall activity
I like to go to the local Pumpkin patch and go through the corn maze and pick fresh fruit.
Soooo, I honestly didn’t know what to do for this, not because I don’t enjoy fall, more that I love EVERYTHING about it!
Gigantic over sized sweaters
Cosy fires Hot Chocolate
So, I took this picture of my current read, my pumpkin and some decorations instead
Guys guys guys, look what game in to the store early!! I’ve been so excited about this collectors edition, and now it’s here!
Day 23 || #bibliospooktober || Freebie———————————————————–
Expect a ton of photos this weekend while I play ketchup on this challenge! ———————————————————–
I’m so excited for Halloween, but I’m also sort of said that it’s coming to an end! What is your favorite holiday?
This looks like a Dementor is wearing a tie!!!
This series had been a gift & I'd loved it. Need to get more Trudi Canavan
Who’s excited for the weekend?
I am because I get to finish the book I’m currently reading. I’m almost finished it
I was tagged by @kat.bookish to do the #bareyourbookshelf tag. So let’s get started.
A book you own, but haven’t read: Mortal Instruments.
A book your friends love: Acotar
A book at the bottom of your TBR: Goodreads says City of Bones
A book with colour in the title: The Indigo Spell
A book set somewhere you want to visit: as cliché as it sounds.. Hogwarts
I am going to be tagging randomly so if you have already done this tag then no need to worry.
Hocus Pocus is good but I kind of prefer Dark Shadows lately. The Addams Family movies are my absolute top favorites though! When I saw @canterburyroadco had the Gomez and Morticia candle for the month of October I knew I HAD to have it!
This candle is absolutely stunning. Addams family, clove scent, and that lace label! How can you resist it! The scent is a mixture of Clove, Black Cutrant, and Amber. It’s sultry and dark and enchanting. Hurry and order yours before it’s gone!! They’ll only be available for the month of October!
I love chatting with people about books we’ve read or plan to read. Here are a few people I like to call my Bookish friends: @anovelescape @outlandishreads @thebibliolife @skyhazzard
Go check out their accounts and give them some love! I’ve met so many people through Bookstagram and can’t list them all but I highly value all of there friendships!! Tag your Bookstagram bestie so I can find some more amazing friends!
It’s national chocolate day over in America, unfortunately I’m not American so am unable to take full advantage of such a wonderful celebration but i have taken this picture of my hand on a book, fighting with every fibre of my being to not grab that pile of chocolate treats and shove the whole lot into my mouth.
Happy #halloweekend guys! I really need these days, to be honest... I saw this poor baby book lying out like this in the rain the other day and unfortunately it was beyond saving. I think I found a Death Note, but there were no shinigami around so maybe not. Thoughts?
Day 22 || #bibliospooktober || #shelfieaunday———————————————————–
Clearly, it’s not Sunday, but let’s pretend it is. Hope you all had a wonderful week!———————————————————–
Do you have any Halloween plans for the next few days?
What is something that instantly makes you grumpy?
I could probably go on for days about things that really grind my gears. Top few? • People who want to get things done but refuse to make a plan • Comments on how I should parent my children • The scent of patchouli. For my grumpy character I had to go with Snape. I still am indecisive on if he’s a good or bad guy. He’s in a very grey area
Have you checked out @highlandbluffstudio lately?? They have so many amazing new scents for different fandoms! Narnia, Doctor Who, Wonder Woman, and Outlander! Not to mention all the new booksleeves!! This Forbidden Forest candle is one that I really love! It has a dark, almost coffee like, woodys scent. I highly recommend it.
Don’t forget STMETCALFE10 gets you a discount at checkout! Be on the look out for new goodies they have coming soon!!
Best villain?! That’s easy! Sauron is my all-time favorite bad guy. #bibliospooktober
It’s only a few more days till Halloween
