I think I’m going to have to turn in my Bookgirl credentials. I didn’t go to the Texas Book Festival and I didn’t read any spooky stories over the weekend. Now, that’s what I call horror!
I had a really good weekend though. I guess I’m still a bit on a high from Journalfest and all I wanted to do was stay home and create. So I spent hours in the studio cutting, sewing, etc. and made some new journals for the shop. I finally have sketchbooks I’ll be listing this week.
And, while I didn’t read any more spooky reads I did finish my R.I.P. Challenge, granted I only promised to read two books. I read The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, which I loved, and A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb, which I found quite entertaining too. Oh and I also read one short story from 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill. So many, many thanks go out to Carl V. for hosting such a fabulous challenge.
Today I’ve been finding it hard to find what to read next. I’m not sure what I’m in the mood for. Actually I know what I was in the mood for but I can’t find my books. As Dia de los Muertos is here I wanted to read some Mexican folk tales but those books are at my mom’s house. So, I settled for some Pan de Muertos instead.
For now it’s back to the bookshelves to find a new book.
