Bag o'Treats Halloween Giveaway

I love Halloween. While it's not my favorite "holiday," I do enjoy dressing up and sneaking an unhealthy amount of candy before bed time. Even as an adult I haven't out grown this. I find myself "checking" my kids' candy bags to make sure they have "safe candy." What this really means is that I'm swiping the good candy for myself and leaving them with the stuff I don't like. The oldest one has wised up to my shenanigans, but I can still pull it off with the youngest.

So, in the spirit of trick or treating, I'm hosting another giveaway this month. I've been reading Halloweenish books all month long. Granted, they aren't scary books, but they have main characters that fit with this time of year.

I'm not going to tell you what I'm giving away... yet. You'll have to wait and see on the 27th. BUT, I can tell you that I have featured the books in previous In My Mailbox posts and reviews. I will also be writing up a few reviews for the books I plan to include as I finish them.

Entering the contest is going to be easy. You just fill out the form below. If you want an extra entry, all you have to do is take a guess at which books you think I'll be including in the giveaway. If you're correct, then you get an extra entry. Be crafty. Go look around on the blog. There's a handy "archive" search box that will let you search for blog titles. That might help you...


The stuff that bites:

  • Contest open to US and Canada mailing addresses only. 
  • Must be 13 or older to enter. 
  • You MUST be a follower for this giveaway.  
  • Please fill out the form below to be entered. 
  • Winners will be selected on Halloween. 
  • If you want an extra entry, leave a comment on this post with your guess at which books will be included.

My 13 reasons why you should avoid Netflix's 13 Reasons Why

If you subscribe to Netflix, you should know about the book to film adaptation of Jay Asher's novel, Thirteen Reasons Why. I remember reading the book years ago on a recommendation, and fell in love with the story. It took me through so many emotions as I read Hannah's story. You can see my thoughts on the novel here, because this post isn't about the novel per se.

This post is about what bothered me about Netflix's attempt at capturing this story. So here goes, my 13 reasons why I shouldn't have watched "Thirteen Reasons Why" on Netflix.

1. The language. My goodness, the language. I understand that teenagers curse worse than sailors in many situations, but if you aren't bothered by the ridiculous use of the f bomb as both an adjective, verb, and general space filler-- there is a problem. I stopped counting in one episode its use because I reached 20 before the half way point. Twenty! I don't think they even bothered to come up with other words. …

This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…
