October Wrap-Up

October Wrap-Up

Happy Monday! It’s hard to believe October is on its way out and we’re about to head into the holiday season full speed ahead. Before we know it, we’ll be putting together “best of” lists!

Happy Tuesday! I mentioned in my last post that I was picking up Shari Lapena’s newest release, A Stranger in the House for the Spookathon readathon that’s currently going on.
