The Sunday Post Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted over at Caffeinated Book Reviewer

This is a meme where every Sunday you can share what's been going this week in your life and on your blog! It's also good for bragging about all your new lovely books!







Real Life
This week was pretty hectic and fun. I'm still working on getting everything ready for next month, I'm trying to get ahead on blog posts and reading before NaNoWriMo starts, I'm failing mostly on the reading part. I'm also trying to finish up work on one of my books so that I'm completely free to concentrate on NaNoWriMo with no other worries.

Friday night I went to Frightmare, which is kind of a carnival of sorts, very small, and full of Halloween fun! It comes ever year but this was my first year and it was so much fun. The only problem? I am a very shy, antisocial, highly anxious person and we went with a huge group of my brothers friends most of which I have never meet before. 
There was a couple haunted houses and one "ride" of sorts, called the Black Hole. Most of it wasn't that scary, it was just loud noises and people jumping out at you to make you jump. I was called out twice, once by the voice over the intercom in the maze when I started laughing at it, and once by the zombie telling you the rules for the Zombie Farm House for laughing at him... I couldn't take them seriously! Also, it was very rude because they called me a little girl twice..I know I look young, but I'm 18! Okay, I think that's enough on Frightmare...

I also bought tickets to see Fall Out Boy in December!!! I'm already so excited. I'm calling it my reward for surviving NaNoWriMo, my brother is under strict orders to hide the tickets from me until I finish NaNo... Not sure what will happen if I don't win...so that can't happen.

New Books
Bought:

Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder -I'm so sad. I had to order this from B&N because I couldn't get it on Amazon and then the cover doesn't match the other two!
Fire Study by Maris V. Snyder
The Sorcerer Heir by Cinda Williams Chima -How have I not gotten around to reading this yet!?!

  4. That carnival sounds like fun. We don't have halloween here in Australia and it's interesting to hear how you celebrate.
    Hope you have a great week and good luck achieving your goals in NaNoWriMo.

  5. Oh, Frightmare sounds like so much fun. We don't really celebrate Halloween in Sweden (a few kids go trick or treating, but it's not a thing), but I've always wanted to. My week was pretty boring. Reading, working, reading, working..and pretty much nothing more. I read some great books though. :) I've also nominated you for an award at my blog; http://petrasbokblogg.blogspot.se/2014/10/sisterhood-of-world-bloggers-award.html

    1. Ah you should celebrate it, it's so much fun! And great books make the most boring week so much better don't they?

      An award? Awesome, I've been nominated before! I will definitely go check that out! Thanks so much Petra!

  6. I bet you had a blast at Frightmare! Here in Georgia we have a huge haunted house called Netherworld that I'm planning on going, hopefully on Halloween, but we may go earlier. Enjoy Grave Mercy, I read that one a few years ago (I think), and I really liked it.

  7. I'm hoping to go to a Halloween Haunted House at our local jail this year. Been to one before and they are creepy. You don't know what's in the cells waiting for you and it's so dark. Should be fun.

  8. I got called out on STAR TREK the Adventure in Las Vegas when I laughed during the older male actor's very serious tale on the elevator of how we had to save the universe. Yeah, I so thought it was real. Fun though. You are JUST old enough to visit my blog if you choose. You have to be 18 because the books I review feature adult issues. http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2014/10/rainy-days-giveaways-sunday-post.html

  12. That is great motivation, haha! I hope you win NaNo! XD ohh, but non-matching covers really bothers me. I'm quite annoyed that my first 3 Mortal Instrument books are shorter than my last 2. Gah! The OCD in me is shrieking.

  13. I'm really shy too, so that would be really scary for me. I'm glad you had fun though. There's nothing wrong with looking younger, it used to bother me too, but not so much anymore.

    The Heir books by Chima are on my wish list too. Good luck getting ready for nano. I still haven't decided if I'm doing it or not. My week was fine, I read a great book.
