Something Wicked Comes



Do you feel that?  A chill in the air?  Is it just the arrival of fall, or something a little creepier, more mysterious?  Perhaps it's the fact that the Hallowe'en season is on its way and 'tis the season for ... Something Wicked Comes

I've always been a big fan of Hallowe'en, and I love seeing all the pumpkin and ghost decorations come out each year.  I'm not sure if I'll dress up this year, since I have to work around my growing belly (and, really, I don't really want to dress up as a pumpkin...)  We'll see.  Hubby's already planning his costume, but he works in a high school and always loves wow-ing the kids with a great new costume each year.  Last year he was Batman, complete with the foam muscles, and the year before he busted out some of his old clothes and went as an 80s rocker.

I'm participating in my very first blog hop / giveaway tour, hosted by the wonderful Heidi over at Rainy Day Ramblings.  Her blog is amazing -- if you haven't checked it out yet, you totally should.  My scheduled stop on the tour is October 16, at which time I will be posting my review of Michelle Hodkin's The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.  Please stop by a check out my review!

I'm also launching my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY today -- so excited!  This giveaway is open internationally (just as long as The Book Depository ships to you).  The giveaway is open until October 31st, and I will be giving away a paperback copy of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.  You can enter via the Rafflecopter below.

  1. Oh oh...did I screw up? I have you on the schedule for the 16th? Are you just running the giveaway the whole montrh and then doing your spotlight date on the 16th? I am face booking, blogging and tweeting every stop daily and sending out emails to confirm the schedule. I will make sure to get the traffic here on the 16th if that is your date:!

  3. My go-to Halloween costume for a few years when I was in my early 20s was Pregnant Cheerleader. I worked in a consignment clothing store and we had these very realistic strap-on belly's and I would borrow one for halloween. You could be a pregnant cheerleader and you wouldn't even have to hunt down a strap-on belly! ;) LOL. On a serious not, when are you due??!

    Congrats on your first giveaway! You know...I've never ever perused or used the Book Depository...I always assumed it was something us Canadians wouldn't be able to use. ;p

    1. Thanks! That's a GREAT idea for a costume! I'll keep that one in mind ... still not too sure if we're doing anything to celebrate, since it's still pretty far away. Baby's due on February 6th, which used to feel super far away, and now it seems like it's not so far! My mat leave replacement was just hired at work, and I start training her next week, which really made it all feel SO REAL.

      I've only ordered from the Book Depository once so far, but it's actually a bit cheaper than Chapters, and free shipping with no minimum order. You should check it out!
