This post is going up a bit late because I had to go to my mother and father in law’s house earlier to check out a kitten they found. They originally wanted me to take the kitten until they were able to find a shelter for her later this week, but by the time I got to their house they had already decided to keep her! She is the snuggliest, friendliest kitten I have ever seen and she slept curled up in my arms forever! She even let me clip her nails with nary a fuss! She’s all black and I think they have decided to name her Jynx. I wish I thought to take my camera.
Tomorrow is Halloween, but as usual I am not doing anything special. I still have to get candy for the trick or treaters, and since my stepdaughter will be with her mom, it will just be a quiet night at home for my husband and me. Maybe I will even finish my book, which will make my total for October 13 books. I usually only read 7-8 a month, but the readathon definitely upped that, not to mention that less hours at work=more reading time!
Meanwhile, tomorrow also marks the end of Carl’s RIP challenge. Here is what I read for the challenge–
The Night Stranger, by Chris Bohjalian
Cold Kiss, by Amy Garvey
Curtains, by Tom Jokinen
The Alienist, by Caleb Carr
The Devil’s Star, by Jo Nesbo
The Fates will Find Their Way, by Hannah Pittard
The House at Riverton, by Kate Morton
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
The Poison Tree, by Erin Kelly
The Lantern, by Deborah Lawrenson
That’s a total of ten books, which is more than I had hoped to read. I usually stick to around eight RIP books per year. As always, I really enjoyed this challenge. It’s one of the few that I always finish, which is amazing considering my track record with reading challenges!
I hope everyone has a nice, relaxing Sunday. I am headed to my parent’s house shortly to have dinner but maybe I’ll squeeze in some reading at some point.
