What Books to Read If You’re Staying In on Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Halloween just so happens to be my favorite holiday and I feel like this entire month has been a celebration! I went to the new Oogie Boogie Trick or Treat Bash at Disney’s California Adventure, I went back to Knott’s Scary Farm for the first time in 13 years and had a total blast. I have a Halloween party to go to this weekend and I’ll be going to the last day of Halloween Haunt at Universal Studios.

This week’s post is all about the books that I’d give different titles to. I really like this one because, well I’m notorious for judging a book by its title. All the time. I often end up reading a book anyway because someone begs me to but a title definitely can turn me off for a long time.

Sara’s Top Ten Animated Crushes

Normally on a Tuesday, I share the weekly bookish meme Top Ten Tuesday from That Artsy Reader Girl. I didn’t particularly like the topic this week – favorite character traits – so I decided I would still post my own top ten. Since its Blogtober, I am determined to post every single day! I wanted today to have a fun little countdown so I’m sharing my favorite animated crushes! I originally did this post back in 2013 and I thought it would be super fun to do it again. Let’s do this!
