Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts (14)

I'm linking up with Bookish (and Not So Bookish) Thoughts over at Bookishly Boisterous.

Trick-or-treating with grandma!
1.) We had so much fun on Halloween!  Julia was a Rockford Peach from 'A League of Their Own' and she was just too cute.  She can be pretty shy but she had so much fun trick-or-treating.  My mother-in-law lives in a very friendly neighborhood so everyone was handing out candy and there were kids everywhere.  It was great!

2.) I swore that, for the rest of the year, I would only read books I own.  Yeah...that lasted about two seconds.  I went to the library to drop some movies off and wound up having time to browse the shelves and ended up leaving with four books.  Oops.

3.) When I first finished grad school, I bought the first two Harry Potter books in Russian so I could practice my language skills.  Fast forward to many years later, I finally bought the rest of the series in Russian and plan to start reading them next year after I finish my English re-read this year.  I just don't feel like taking a Russian class this spring so I'm hoping this will be almost as helpful.

4.) I'm so excited for the holidays but am not excited for the complete financial drain that is the holidays.  I'm going to really try to keep spending to a minimum this year but it is so hard.  I've been terrible with my budget lately and need to get my act together since we're planning to buy a house this spring.

5.) I went to vote for Goodreads books of the year and realized that I have read very few of the books nominated.  A bunch of them are on my TBR list but I've maybe read 6-7 of all the books nominated.  I feel like a read a lot but maybe I just don't read enough brand new books.

6.) Halloween killed my diet.  I have to get back on track but we've been having a bunch of parties at work this week so it might not be until next week.  I'm still doing pretty good with my exercise though!  I really wish I could just eat all the time and not gain weight. (HA!)

Have a great week everyone!
