Hey Loves,

I haven't posted in a fat ass minute. I was playing ghost to get into Halloween. Is that allowed? Is that an excuse? I don't think so. It's okay if you don't think so. Listen, college is annoying. I've got fifteen page papers and exams and hookah parties to get through. That last one really isn't an excuse.

ANYWAY, guess what's coming up? Halloween. Guess who's favorite holiday is Christmas and not Halloween. Mine. Last year I had a rough holiday. Freshman in college. Halloween. Liquor. Do the math, babes. Actually I take that back. Read between the lines, babes. I don't want anyone doing any math on my blog. I got white girl wasted. So this year I'm keeping it real chill. My mom shipped me up enough candy to make me lust after my 1500 calorie diet. You might think gorging on M&Ms (pretzel, peanut butter, and peanut) and Almond Joys and 100 Grands and Twix and blah blah blah would be great. And it is at first. Then you wake up the next day strewn in chocolate laced cellophane and wonder how you got to be there.

Now that that tradition is out of the way, I'm looking to do something festive, but thinning. Guess what has zero calories? Reading. Guess what this blog's supposed to be about? Reading. Guess what I wanna do this Hollaween? READ. So far I've got Stephen King's Pet Sematary and The Shining. Looking forward to curling      in the crisp and getting creeped.

Stephen King is the... well... king... of creep for me. I think it's because he creates such real characters and then puts them in such situations that make readers feel as if a close friend or even themselves are in the midst of all the horror. I think IT is my favorite. Great, sprawling read with unforgettable characters and a setting real enough for a map.

So what's the scariest book you've ever read? What do you do on Hollaween?

Thanks for reading,
