Happy Friday! Is it feeling like October yet? It definitely is here, and I’m already overwhelmed by all the of the things I want to do and carry out in the next 31 days. This weekend is shaping up to be a fun one with E’s Birthday and meeting the newest wee one in my circle of friends. But first. Friday Favorites. 😉
Favorite Spooky Book/Author
Every Thursday or Friday I have been (for the most part) following along the A is for Adelaide Challenge. It’s crazy that the year’s end is in sight, and I’m going to try hard to finish strong. This week is on a book, and in the spirit of October I’m going to discuss my favorite spooky book/author.
I’m not a horror genre girl, unless you count the time that I read House of Leaves for book club. I could (and should) write a whole post on mind-bending journey that the book took me on. Only two of us finished, and although I wouldn’t read it again I guarantee its like nothing you’ve ever read before! There’s a reason it’s in the top of all scary book lists, but it’s not the type of scary that you think it is.
House of Leaves isn’t my favorite spooky book because I’m more of a mystery girl. I just wanted to give it an honorable mention if any of you are die-hard psychological thriller fans. My way of being “spooked” is with mysteries, and my go-to author is Mary Higgins Clark. Her books don’t keep me up at night, but they keep me on the edge of my seat. I really wish I had more time to just sit and read mysteries all day!
It’s officially comfort food season, and although I’m seriously trying to revamp my eating I couldn’t resist The Gunny Sack’s take on one of my favorite dishes.
Favorite Fashion Find
I’m drooling over this BlankNYC Faux Leather Jacket! Find other great coats under $200 at Nordstrom here.
I am constantly on the lookout for how to improve my pictures, whether it’s for this blog, Instagram life, or real life! This DIY Photo Backdrops post from SilverLiningTheBlog evoked an inward squeal that I’m hoping will show itself in future pics. Stay tuned!
Favorite New Fall TV
I think my husband is recording EVERY new show this season:). I’ve narrowed down my favorites to a tie between The Player and Blindspot, both which happen to air on NBC. Have you all seen these? What do you think?
So many things to favor…so little time! Have a beautiful weekend:)
