October Adventure Log: a month in review

Did October come and go like a fever dream for anyone else? I am so disappointed because I feel like I didn’t get to experience Spooky Season to its fullest potential.

The weather is finally beginning to cool a bit here in Southern California though, and the last week of October finally felt like Fall. It’s a shame that palm trees don’t change leaves, though!

But with a new month, it’s time to wrap-up everything October! My post format has changed a bit this month, so read on to hear all about what I read and hauled, and much more!

7 Perfect Gift Ideas for Book Lovers

I don’t know about you, but my family always struggles with what to get their not-so-little bookworm for the holidays.

Halloween Hocus Pocus GIF - Halloween HocusPocus BunchOfHocusPocus - Discover & Share GIFs

Words can’t express how much I love this movie. I have many fond memories of me in the sixth or seventh grade, laying on my dining room table and talking on the phone with my friend Katie about how hot Thachary Binx is. I watch Hocus Pocus many times a year and it’s one of my faves!

I saw this over on Caro’s blog, The Bookcheshire Cat, and remembered that I had this tag sitting in my tag hoard of doom?! Many thanks to my buddy Katie @ Never Not Reading for creating this amazing tag three years ago – be sure to check out their blogs & show them some witchy love!
